We had a very nice experience sitting outside with tasty hot food and cold drinks. We will be back!
Also, one of us left a jacket hanging on the back of a chair. No problem picking it up the next day. Very nice folks and easy to deal with.

We had a great evening! We had requested the patio in our reservation and though they don’t guarantee it will be available, it was for us. The weather for perfect. I was especially glad we were outside because when we went in to check in at the hostess stand it felt quite cold inside. Expect the usual noise and bustle of people when dining outside.
Luke was our waiter and he was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive though he was clearly very busy. There Fall menu has recently come out. His food recommendations were spot on. We had the charred cauliflower and butternut squash soup to start. My husband thought the soup was a bit sweet but he scraped the bowl clean. The cauliflower was great; nicely charred with a hint of dill. I appreciated Luke’s ability to answer my question on another entree and because of that we both had the vegan double burger sans vegan cheese and Mayo. Huge and delicious sandwich! I recommend the chopped salad as a side; very good. Definitely try the butternut squash pie! I was torn before the flourless chocolate cake and butternut squash pie but Luke said the pie was great. He was right; tastes like pumpkin pie. Delicious ( I was sorry I agreed to share with my husband!) We we’re celebrating our anniversary and our pie came out with a candle. The server who brought it wished us a Happy Anniversary. So sweet. I have one small thing to note. We ordered red wine and it came out in cold glasses. Not sure why but it could have been the temperature inside. Don’t know. The wine didn’t appear chilled (I put my finger in it)and we let it sit for a while to for the glass to warm up.
You gotta go! Food is great and our server, Luke, was top notch!

Sweet potato side dish was exceptionally small and barely warm. Panini was sad looking. Guacamole was very liquidy and pita chips that accompanied it were almost burnt.

Squash pizza was delicious. Squash pie was delicious and definitely needed more coconut whipped cream.

Server wasn’t personable but was attentive.

Paying was a little difficult at first and I wasn’t allowed to use both my coupons on the app.

KendallC, Sorry to hear about the experience you had with us this past week. I am sorry about the food quality and presentation.

Please reach out to the store and speak with the manager on duty to get you a credit for your meal. Thanks for the review and feedback.

We were seated 30 minutes after reservation even though there were many empty tables because of either a backed up kitchen or staff shortage. This is the second time this has happened to us. Seems they can’t accommodate al the take out business and their reservations and have not adjusted reservations to their capacity. Food and service was good once we were seated. Place is noisy.

We try to accommodate everyone but sometimes we do get a little stretched thin and we will need to be better with making sure we don't over seat the building. We are working on some sounds issues to help reduce noise. Thanks again for the Review.

I had reservations for 2 with a preference to be outside. So, I was seated at a tiny table outside . The young lady behind me - because she had a boxer dog was seated at a large table with an umbrella.she had no reservations.
To me , always provide the better table to the customer with the reservation.
Thanks for listening.

Used to love True Food, so i felt it was worth the cost. I’ve had the Poke bowl before, but it’s been a while. It was just eh. Flavors were just ok, but texture of mushrooms, rice and tuna were all a bit off. I get tuna all the time and this just didn’t look right, it didn’t taste bad just the color and texture didn’t seem fresh. Definitely was not worth $22.
