Great service and we enjoyed sampling the new Fall menu; we are locals and always treasure our visits to True Food. And cocktails were superb, as well as the wine by the glass. Totally fresh food, with many selections for our particular diets, vegan to keto. Thank you!

Food was delicious. Very flavorful and very fresh. Entrees took a little long to get ready and restaurant wasn't busy but waitress checked with us frequently and kept us apprised of the situation. We didn't mind that it took a little long because it was hot and cooked perfectly! Had tuna lettuce wraps appetizer and ancient grain bowl and chicken and sausage pizza for entrees. All very very delicious!

As an alternative health practitioner of 22 years, I was very excited to try this place out. In my early years I followed Dr Weil’s teachings on nutrition. We started with the edamame wonton which was delicate and aromatic, not overpowering. My guest ordered shrimp tacos and I had the ancient grains bowl. Both were a bit on the salty side but still tasty. For dessert the flourless chocolate cake with coconut ice cream was amazing. Americano for my friend and ginger tulsi tea to end. Our server was training and did a great job, although a bit more pacing would be great and waiting until we finished our meal before dropping the check would have made this a 5 star. I’ll definitely return to try other things and request a window booth next time, as the dining room is large and the acoustics are loud.

True Food Kitchen is a restaurant in New Orleans city center, for which I have to admit I have a crush on.

So happy to have True Food in New Orleans. I love traditional New Orleans cuisine, but sometimes I want something on the lighter (dare I say healthier) side and True Food is fantastic for those nights. The menu is varied and the food is delicious. Last night, I had a great glass of white wine, an excellent charred cauliflower appetizer and a wonderful entree of salmon with fresh grilled vegetables and a farro and quinoa combination that was better than I thought it would be. And while I wanted healthy and light, my sister went for the burger and bourbon cocktail and was equally pleased.
