Food and staff were amazing! Came from Omaha with my family and met my best friend there on his recommendation. His family is local and loves TFK. I ordered seasonal food and it was perfection. Even my picky teenager talked about how great his lunch was all day.

Very accommodating. Made a reservation for 8 people for 7 pm and asked at 5:30 if we could move it to 6pm. It was a Saturday night. The hostess had to do a little shuffling of her seating plan but made it happen. That was so great! Reunion of my 90 year old aunt, cousin and her husband with my 85 year old mom, my sister, me, my wife and 16 yr old. Perfect place for a nice meal and good conversation. Thank you so much!!!

The hostess took forever to get to us. She was busy with a customer and seemed like she was training a new girl. We were about 15 min early for our reservations was able to get a drink of water available. The rest of the dinner was fantastic! Waiter was awesome!! Wanted poke they did not have tuna. So settled for Korean noodles which was really good.

Vegan burger needs a little help. Turkey burger was fabulous, meaty, juicy. Guacamole was amazing, edamame addition was genius. Concord grape lemonade was neither lemony nor grapey, color tinted ice water is all.
Place was busy, servers were jammed but very polite.

First time here. Spaghetti squash casserole was very filling. My husband had the turkey burger and sweet potato hash and they were both tasty. We shared the flourless chocolate cake and ice cream and it was delicious. I had one glass of bubbly rose which cost the same as my entree…. $14.00. I feel that was overpriced. We sat at the bar and there were only 4 other customers at the bar at this time. Our server who was also the bartender was busy but unattentive. After our meal we waited another 35 minutes for our dessert order to be taken. Poor service…..but like many other places…understaffed.

Hi Missy. We truly appreciate the feedback here. I'm glad you enjoyed the food, however we certainly missed on the service. No excuses at all, we should be better and I will take this feedback and coach my team. It's very kind of you to still give us 4 stars even though it sounds like we didn't earn that this time around. Hope you'll be back soon and I'm confident you'll get the level of service to match the level of food! Thanks Missy!

It's the perfect restaurant for me since I think food is excellent, including the service. However, the level of music is/was tooo high ...we are senior citizens and i have hearing aids. Fortunately i could turned them off, but music was still too loud. We had asked several times for it to be lowered, and it was, but apparently, it's not continuous. It was my fourth time there, and I know i'll be back more and more.

Every thing about True Food Kitchen was great until it came time to pay the bill. The online payment was a bit confusing, especially to those of us who are not particularly tech savvy. It took several tries and some frustration before we got it settled. Perhaps more instruction from the server would be helpful.

Staff was very competent and pleasant, nice atmosphere, food was good and healthy. Several of us ordered the same thing because our choices were somewhat limited; many of the items were vegan or vegetarian and not appealing to those of us who weren't in either of those categories. It is a great option for people who are, but it is unlikely that most of us will return to this particular venue when there are so many choices with more menu items to our liking.

Thank you for the feedback. There really are alot of options here for both Vegan/Vegetarian and meat-lovers alike. Our Turkey Burger and Chicken Sausage Pizza are delicious! And you can add Steak, Chicken, Shrimp, Salmon or Seabass to any our our bowls or salads. Hope you'll give our menu another look and we have some brand new options coming for the fall including the Lasagna Bolognese:) Again thanks for trying us out and hope to see you back again!

Food was delicious. Cauliflower appetizer followed quickly by sea bass entree. When placing our order, we asked the server to pace the meal so we could enjoy our cocktails and she assured us she would. She didn’t. Entree dropped as soon as the app was devoured. Probably my fault for ordering the app and entree at the same time. The restaurant wasn’t busy, though, so I wish it didn’t feel like we were being rushed through the meal. We know the pandemic has been hard on restaurants and staff so we still tipped 20%. And we do recommend others go, just order your appetizer and entree separately if you want to ensure the pacing is more to your liking.
