The food menu and drink menu are very limited. The dish I had was good, but again, there weren't a lot of choices. Had I read the menu prior to going, I would have went someplace else.

I'm rating the service at my table. The hostess told us to wait at the bar, which was weird because as soon as I ordered a glass on wine she said the table was ready. My party went to sit and I waited at least 10 min AFTER I had my drink and gave him my card for him to ring up my bill- irritating! Next ordered Brussels S an appetizer- they came out freezing (like from the frig) cold. We asked if they were supposed to be cold- the waitress said they were supposed to be "warm"?? Manager came over said he would remove them from the bill which wasn't expected but was appreciated. The waitress was good and friendly. The chicken wrap tasteless, the pizza just so so...

We were greeted warmly upon arrival and seated immediately in a section without any other diners. Jennifer was a great server and was very helpful. We were treated to an appetizer since they put cheese on a hamburger and made a new one! All in all, it was a wonderful dining experience and we will certainly return.

I want to like this place but it’s inconsistent. I got a kale salad with steak. There were only a few small pieces of steak. I was still hungry so I ordered the steak tacos. The steak was so tough I couldn’t chew it. I was tired of complaining so I just boxed it and paid my bill. The manager was really nice on my last visit and made sure everything was good because the last two visits were terrible. The salmon was so salty I couldn’t eat it and the dessert was dry. My son’s burger was burnt and gross. It is sad because it’s a pretty location and sometimes it can be good but I’m tired of fighting for it to be good.

Unfortunately, I do not remember our servers name, but the the gentleman who served us was helpful and understanding.

I do wish I had been able to order multiple courses but our time was cut short and he understood.

I hope to join True Food Kitchen again soon, as the butternut squash soup was delicious, as well as the chia pudding and the common bond (bourbon drink).

True Food offers a unique array of healthy and tasteful entrees. Wonderful craft cocktail selection. Excellent environment and service. I had the Spagetti Squash Casserole, which was wonderful.

My birthday celebration with friends. Outdoor section was perfect and service really was great. I don’t know if the mask made understanding details about the entree difficult but I was under the impression it would be hot and it was not. It was a cold seasonal dish. That was disappointing but didn’t want to say anything. Everything else was great. Our server was so sweet. It really is such a fun place to go and the food is yummy!!
