    This was the first time we went out with our newborn without our toddler. Our server gave us the time and space we needed while also providing excellent service. The food never disappoints and the cocktails were incredible. Thank you for such a lovely evening.

    I loved everything we had here, and one of my companions noted that he feels so much better eating at a place like this that offers healthy food than at a standard barbeque restaurant! I love that vegan choices are offered, and the macha horchata, hummus appetizer plate, and vegan double cheeseburger were all delicious. Tara was very attentive and enthusiastic - great at her job! Thank you!

    True Food Kitchen - Kansas CityResponded on November 20, 2022Thanks so much!!! We love Tara and I'll make sure we share the kind words:) See you again soon!

    Was very noisy in main area. Very hard to hear your conversation. My friend has a hearing aid so we asked to be moved to outside area which was less crowded. We could not have carried on a conversation in the restaurant. Tables are very close also and can’t have a private conversation food was great as was service. Love the fall menu

    True Food Kitchen - Kansas CityResponded on November 14, 2022Appreciate the feedback and I'm happy we were able to accommodate your move to a more quiet area of our restaurant. Truly appreciate the support and hope to see you back soon. Thank you Michele.

    I met my daughters there for dinner on Friday night. We were celebrating my daughter passing an Architectural Engineering test. We were seated early. We ordered drinks and appetizers. Both were amazing. We all ordered something different on the menu and we all delighted with our choices. The finale was dessert. The service was amazing and the waiter shared he has gotten to try every item on the menu!! We enjoyed our time together chatting and eating good food.

    True Food Kitchen - Kansas CityResponded on October 31, 2022Thanks so much for celebrating with us! Congrats to your Daughter!!! Hope to see you again soon!

    We had the brussell sprouts, cawliflower, and butternut squash flatbread for appetizers, and all were fabulous. Entrees ranged from several bowls, to salads (fave was chopped but seasonal was great too), sea bass, and lasagna. Everyone was very pleased. Drinks were eclectic and fresh and fun. Surprise was the proprietary blend Pinot Grigio when was so great we ordered a bottle. Service was great. Total bill for 8 with beverages and tip was around $380.

    True Food Kitchen - Kansas CityResponded on October 24, 2022We appreciate the detailed feedback and the support! So happy you and your group enjoyed everything! See you again soon:)

Great place to go with large group so everyone can find something they like & that accommodates their special requests! We celebrate here for many special occasions, we are always well taken care of and have a fantastic experience. Food is always great, but also high quality and definitely “better for you!”

    We'd been here two previous times and enjoyed it and the food. They have options for everyone meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans. It could potentially get loud in there but for the most part the noise level is medium to moderate. Service help is attentive and pleasant. I would definitely recommend it if you'd like to try something different than the typical chain or bar grill restaurant.

    Food is good Service is average Price is a little high for what you get Front door staff is more about themselves than the customers who have just entered. They're friendly, but dress poorly and fail to say good evening, etc. And ALL staff needs to stop saying "no problem". The appropriate answer to a "thank you" is "you're welcome". Of course its NO PROBLEM....its your job!
