    We love the food and atmosphere but last night the service was incredibly slow. We waited at least 20 minutes to get our drinks and had to ask the host to send our waiter over. Not typical for this restaurant.

    The venue was beautiful and welcoming, but the noise was almost deafening inside which was surprising for a Thursday night. It wasn't their fault; customers were LOUD. We would have chosen to sit outside, but there was no table available. The food was phenomenal and the staff were friendly. However, a packed house meant the servers were not always around or not responding. They seemed a bit stressed, although they were doing their best to be smiling and cordial. The noise prompted us to leave early.

    We're glad to hear you loved our food and found our staff friendly despite the noise and service challenges. Thank you for sharing your experience; we're looking into ways to better manage busy times.

    Food and drinks were delicious. In spite of being a busy time, the waiter was very available to give information and was efficient and friendly. Noise level was a little high if that would be a problem for anyone.

    Thank you for your kind words on our food, drinks, and the efficiency and friendliness of our staff. We'll look into the noise levels to improve the dining experience for everyone.

    The experience is always good at true food, kitchen, regardless of the location! However,The new menu was not to our delight. Alisa say Customer Service/waitstaff were on top of everything and made sure that we had a great experience even changing our dishes a couple of times.

    True Food always has fabulous food and terrific service. My complaint was the noise level. It was through the roof. Impossible to hear the other 3 people at my table. Too hot to sit outside (2 of our people were in their 80’s) so we were stuck with basically eating in silence. Even the server, who was terrific, was speaking to us with a just shy of yelling voice to be heard.

    Great food, many menu options for all kinds of tastes. Server was friendly and funny but it took at least 15 min to get our drinks once we ordered them. It also took a while for server to come to take our meal order. Possibly she had too many tables cover? Despite that, Food came out timely and was delicious!
