Great food, terrible service. Sadly. We sat for 30 minutes and we’re only given one glass of water. I had to go inside and ask for service and another glass of water, they said they would bring it and we eventually received it 10 minutes later. We were not met with any apology or reason. They did not seem understaffed or too busy. Truly just unacceptable.

Very disappointing. I have been a frequent diner at true food since it opened, with the exception of during the pandemic, but resumed visits recently. We were party of four and waited an hour to get our lunch and of the four of us one had a cold meal one had chicken added to a salad that was so dry and over cooked it was not edible, And in general it was a less than satisfying experience.

We usually have no issues at True Food, but this was a very disappointing dinner especially since we had a reservation and were celebrating a baby shower. It seemed like the restaurant was understaffed in servers and in the kitchen. It took close to 30 minutes to talk to our server for the first time and place our drink and food order. Then our food arrived another 45 minutes late but only two plates at a time. It took around 30 minutes to receive all of the food for the table.

And thank you for bringing these issues to us so that we can address them with our staff as well as reevaluate our systems to ensure that this doesn't happen again, to you or any other guest. I sincerely hope that you will give us another opportunity to make you a True believer again in the near future.

Cost free parking was a breeze in the underground garage. Our reservation was for 5:00pm so they were only at about half capacity but it was filling up fast. The decor and atmosphere was modern, bright and open. Green plants, clean lines and warming colors every where we looked. The wait staff was sharp, energetic and knowledgeable. It’s rare we dine at a place where the waitstaff knows when to approach the table and when to let you enjoy your dinner party and meal. True Food kitchen hit that mark perfectly. Our waiter even noticed us (2) sitting on the same side of the table and offered to turn the table to give us more space. We decline, it was a momentary situation. The food was prepared and presented with artistic care. The flavors and seasonings were combined with skill and balance. Yet every few bites there seemed a subtle surprise. It was a wonderful meal in every way. We had the spaghetti squash and salmon as our entrees. When the check came I was surprised again. Very affordable for the experience. I recommend True Food Kitchen with the utmost confidence.

Awful experience from start to finish.
First time there and took a while to be served and even get a drink. Ordered the food then two of the meals and one of the sides were freezing cold so we had to send back.
Whilst they were somewhat apologetic and we did get a couple of free deserts, it didn’t take away from the overall poor experience and it still cost us way more than that experience was worth.

My mom and I went for a quick lunch on a Saturday. We each had the Ancient Grains Bowl with salmon and loved it ! My mom also had a cocktail called the Monarch which was not only beautiful but smelled and tasted delicious. It was really refreshing.
True Food really focuses on healthy dining but does not skimp on flavor. I have only been here a few times but have never been disappointed in my dish.

This is the first visit to the Nashville True Food Kitchen but we have visited locations in Chicago and Santa Monica. The service, food and menu options were phenomenal. The gluten free options are excellent and as I always feel safe at True Food even with my celiac disease. Lots of space to dine outside makes it a great COVID dining experience and the staff and servers were very efficient and friendly.
