The food was pretty. The vegan key lime pie we had was frozen and difficult to eat. The texture and flavor was underwhelming.
Love it always!
Great place with delicious menu choices. Good variety of vegetarian, vegan, and traditional meals.
Thanks Michelle! We appreciate you!
Everything was so fresh and perfectly seasoned. Can't wait to try more of their dishes. Staff members were very efficient and willing to modify dishes to your requirement.
Thanks for the 5 Stars! See you again soon:)
Very friendly, nice atmosphere and the food was great.
Thanks Lori Hope to see you back soon.
Our food was prepared and served in a very timely basis.
Thanks Deb. Hope to see you back soon!
Wait staff friendly but unorganized. Prices a bit high. But overall a good experience
Thanks for the feedback and the 5 Stars!!
We visited Kansas City but live in the Pacific Northwest. We wish and hope they will get one out there soon! It was a 15 out of 10!
15 out of 10?! Thanks so much! Hope to see you back in KC soon!
Great meal and service.
Thanks for the support Bobby!
My husband & I had a great dinner at True Food Kitchen (Kansas City) for our wedding anniversary yesterday. I grew up cooking in my family's restaurant & remain very active & creative in the kitchen as an adult. I really enjoyed the recipes we were served. The flavor profiles were elevated to include several notes especially umami which is harder to come by when eating out. We wouldn't have changed anything about the dishes we ordered, everything was extremely well-made. We highly suggest getting one of their specialty drinks with your meal. Thank you True Food Kitchen for a great experience!
Thank you so much for the great feedback and the 5 Stars. We truly appreciate the support. See you again soon:)
Great service, fun atmosphere, meh food.
Would love to here more details on your dining experience. Our food is what we are passionate about most of all so want that passion to show in the end result. Sounds like we missed here. If you'd be willing to discuss please reach out to me directly @ 816.216.4640. Appreciate the feedback!
great food, thoughtful service, True Food is always consistently top notch.
Truly appreciate the kind words and the continued support!
True Food has great food and service. The pizzas are excellent and so is the burger. The cauliflower appetizer is fantastic.
Thanks so much Daniel!! Appreciate you:)
Lovely meal with great service. Summer menu had some nice, new dishes.
Thanks so much Jennifer! See you again soon!
Always delicious! Thank you foe finally adding the gluten free pita and bread option!
Hi Dana! Always happy to accommodate Gluten Free whenever we can!! Thanks for the 5 Stars:)
Wanted a refreshing option with a pregnant friend from out of town. Our last minute reservation was accommodated nicely, and the food was great!
Thanks for the 5 Stars! Hope to see you back soon:)
Not anything special. The side kale salad is horrible and extra-purified filtered water is not a good reason to not offer ice cubes in drinks during 90° temperatures. I won't be rushing back.
Rhonda I appreciate the feedback. First off let me apologize you did not enjoy the Kale. We've recently had sourcing issues and have been struggling with consistency here. Thats 100% on us to get corrected, I assure you we will be better. If you'd be willing to give us another opportunity please reach out to me directly at 816.216.4640 and I'd like to get you set up for another visit. Thank you Rhonda I look forward to the opportunity to win you back.
The team at True Food provides wonderful service. We dined there everyday while in town, and the food was so yummy! The last day, my mom had to religious fast so we asked if they could cook up something with sweet potatoes, no onion, no garlic. They created a perfect dish and made sure to take care with any other sides to make sure the meal was special.
Many thanks for your kindness! We can’t wait to come back soon!!
Thanks so much for the feedback. SO happy your mom was able to enjoy her sweet potatoes! Always happy to accommodate however we can! See you again soon:)
We were VERY excited to try True Food Kitchen. But, sadly, were VERY disappointed and won't return.
_The overall space is quite expansive and visually impressive upon entry (at least the half facing Brush Creek) and the hosts were nice enough (albeit fairly lackluster). However, despite having made a reservation many days prior, we were lead to a table on the darker/entirely unpopulated side of the establishment (it appeared the other half was full so we didn't ask to be re-seated). *No reservation necessary btw, even on a busy weekend night at peak - just walk in (you'll probably get a better seat)!
_Only after we'd settled in did we notice that there were actually many options open on the other half that should have been offered to us.
_Our side/table = dark, no view, no patrons, light or life.
_Server was nice, but perhaps too casual - not what you'd expect from an establishment charging at high end price points. But, in fairness, we don't expect much in that area these days anyway due to the widespread hiring issues restaurants are facing. You clearly have to pay top dollar at established 5 star venues to find experienced servers anymore.
_The food is mediocre at best and EXTREMELY overpriced (as our the drinks). Portions are small to medium with minimal emphasis on presentation. Ingredients are fresh but tossed together and lack much flavor.
There are literally dozens of superior, lower priced, health-centric options around KC.
We felt a bit fleeced, like we'd visited a named pop chef's overpriced vanity front at an amusement park. Others seem to rave so we're clearly in the minority. But, we certainly can't in good faith recommend the experience to others like us who work hard for their money and have to pick their expensive nights out very carefully/sparingly.
*Additionally, there was zero indication this was just a "bad night" situation. Overall vibe appeared very status quo (none of the employees appeared stressed, no angry customers, etc.).
We appreciate your detailed feedback. Thank you for trying us out. We regret you left us disappointed, would have loved to have the opportunity to address your concerns the night of. If you ultimately change your mind and would like to give us another shot feel free to reach out to me directly 816.216.4640 and I can handle your reservation and make sure we sit you somewhere in the restaurant that works better for you. Thanks and have a great rest of your holiday weekend.

Our waitress was amazing along with her supporting staff. Their service was exceptional. They reminded us food that was not gluten free which was important to my friend.
Thank you Amy (??)

Thanks for the support and feedback!

Glad you enjoyed! Thanks for the 5 stars!
Fab, fresh, and creative dishes! We are repeat customers!
We appreciate your support! See you back soon:)
This is the 3rd time I have been here where the service was super-slow. It took some time for us to even get a server, & then it just continued to be slow. It took so long for our main entrees to come out that the manager covered the entire meal. Someone had forgotten to look at our order. We love the food, & that is why we continue to go there. However, we have never had the service issue at True Foods in any other city - only st the one in KC. I hope they improve upon this.
I've very sorry to hear about your experiences with us in Kansas City. While I'm glad our team ultimately took care of you, it's important to us that we get this corrected. My name is Taylor Ewing, I'm the General Manager of the Kansas City location and would like to hear more details on your experiences with us. Any feedback that can help us get better would be greatly appreciated. If you'd be willing to discuss please reach out to me directly at 816.216.4640. Thank you
I loved all of the vegan options!! The is a bit pricey.
Love this place! Great food and great service! The staff is always so friendly.
Thanks Bella! We appreciate the continued support!
Our server was wonderful!! Cauliflower appetizer was really good. Vegan pizza was amazing! Allergen friendly cookies are can’t miss. We got 2 dozen to go over two days and are being some back to omaha for family to eat.
Always a great meal every time we come!
Thank you so much for your support! Hope to see you again soon!
They were very helpful with food allergies. There were all sorts of food options and everything was delicious!
Thank you for the kind words and the 5 Stars!
The food is amazing. I love that they not only have vegan, gluten-free and dairy free entrees, but they also have desserts that are vegan, gluten-free and dairy free.
Thanks for the 5 Stars Jen!
Great food, full of flavor!
Our server, Kira, was top notch and was happy to suggest menu choices! Great experience- will return.
Appreciate the support Tim! See you back soon:)
The noise of patrons, staff and general business was very low. The music was too loud.
Thanks for the feedback Jennifer. Always appreciate it! Hope to see you back soon!
Thanks Jan! See you again soon!
Very delicious chicken parmesan and gluten free pizza. Had two gluten free deserts as well that were also great. A bit pricey, but otherwise excellent.
Thank you so much for the support and the 5 stars!
The hummus appetizer was good. The rest of the food was very average. The filling on the avocado Keylime pie was very good but the crust was like a brick. Overall very disappointing.
I'm very disappointed to hear about your recent experience with us. If you'd be willing to give us another opportunity I would like to invite you back in and make sure you get the True Food experience you came to us for. Please reach out to me directly at 816.216.4640. Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.
