Great food. Hadn’t been there before selected based on other reviews and the diverse menu, that includes traditional, vegetarian and vegan options.
Very friendly staff.
We both ordered the Ancient Grains Bowl with Shrimp and absolutely loved it. We decided to sit outside due to the high noise level inside. It was a bit cold but the heat lamps kept us warm. We also love the Edamame Dumplings which are really scrumptious!
I requested a quite place as last time I was inside and it was way too loud. This time the table was perfect! Our waiter was AWESOME!!!
Although the food is excellent, the service has problems. We have gone to True Foods multiple times and they seem incapable of providing drinks in a timely manner. We frequently receive our drinks after the main course arrived. As for ordering a second round, the wait is usually 10 to 15 minutes. If this were a one time occurrence I wouldn't complain. What was a one time occurrence was our showing up with a reservation, being asked to wait and after 20 minutes being informed they had forgotten we had a reservation. >>>>> At most restaurants, this would be followed by a free round of drinks or something. Nothing from TF. <<<<<<< Again good food, but lousy service that has been consistent since their opening day.
TFK is one of the few restaurants where you can get a healthy meal (yet tasty too!). We eat here at least once a week as a result.
Service can be spotty.
We had a great time great service and the food was delicious and healthy and their patio is dog friendly
We had a lovely lunch in the outside seating area. We enjoyed the seasonal and healthy selections.
Love the food. Love the vibe.
True Food Kitchen offers a wonderful menu to take care of all my family members' food sensitivities--garlic allergy, dairy-free, egg-free, meat-free. Everyone was happy with their dinner and the squash pie for dessert.
A true delight to have dinner here while in Pasadena. Would highly recommend.
Food, drinks, and service was great - only negative was the noise level which made conversation challenging at times
The food was out of this world delicious. Great vegan and raw options. I highly recommend the flourless chocolate cake if you can save room for dessert! The service was amazing as well.
Wonderful server Edleigh, Helped with our menu choices and brought everything extremely hot and fresh. It was crowded because Easter Sunday offered few restaurant choices.
We gathered as a family for Easter brunch. The menu met all our special needs (gluten free, vegan, etc.). The food was delicious and the service was great. The restaurant did a great job accommodating our large (8) party. Thanks, True Foods!
Third time to True Food and this time was kind of lackluster. Service was just ok- so many staff members seemed to be void of emotion and just overall too busy. Two out of four of our entrees had hair in them. :( I do appreciate the Gluten Free menu items and the ambiance is really great. We especially like the location, as it's so close to all the shops on Colorado.
Our waitress wasnt as pleasurable as we would have liked. When my mom (almost 60 yrs old) asked about certain items on the menu, waitress replied with “whatever you read there on the menu” instead of taking the time to explain or simply answer the question about the dish in question. This happened several times. That alone killed the vibe from the beginning. Food is very healthy, so the kids didnt enjoy it as much, but i did.
my favorite restaurant, hands down, is TFK in old town Pasadena. The food is consistently so good! and the service has always been excellent. Great value for the quality of food, service and atmosphere.
Great service and food. Love the ambiance
WE ENJOY THE FACT THAT MY WIFE AND I CAN GET FODS WE CAN BITH EAS AS SH'E A VEGITARIAN AND I'M NOT.
Great food. Nice to have a place you can count on for fresh and delicious food. This location in Old Town Pasadena has had a lot of restaurants over the years: hope True Food is here to stay!
P.S. Norton Simon Museum is just a couple blocks west on Colorado; if you haven't been, this is a Pasadena treasure!!!
We came here for a business meal and wrote on the reservation we needed to be in and out in an hour, told the hostess when we walked in, and told the waiter when we sat. It took our waiter 15 minutes to bring drinks, 30 minutes to even take our order and an hour for our food to arrive. I understand you are a busy restaurant, but there is never a reason for a lunch to take an hour to arrive and due to this delay we were late to 4 appointments afterwards. We used this location for our clients often, and I was very disappointed with the service.
Had an early dinner here as we were driving through. This was my first time dining at this location. Tried the lettuce wraps for the first time...delish! Also would like to note that the service was exceptional. Thank you Pasadena!
Yum, that’s all! Everything but the
Ths was Iyar first tune at the restaurant and it was exceptional! The food was innovative and well presented, fresh and tasty. The service was excellent. Cannot wait to return!
I prefer the outdoors, but it was raining so the inside it was. A bit noisy for me, but by the time we had squash pie there were less people so it became quieter. The spicy coconut chicken soup hit the spot and the service was perfect even when it felt like we were being ignored.
This is the seventh time dining at this location and as always the food, service and ambiance did not disappoint! Our server Jenna was exceptional and very knowledgeable about the various entrees and options.
The Kale salad with grilled Salmon and Tofu added was amazing!
Wonderful seasonal menu. Healthy options. Nice patio area. Friendly service.
My favorite restaurant!
Slow service, overwhelmed waiter
Had to ask four people for a booster seat
The food is just not good. The spaghetti squash was flavorless. My fiancé ordered an egg sandwich and his chicken sausage was pink in the middle. I ordered a gluten free mushroom pizza as I couldn't eat my squash and the dough was bad. It had a horrible chemical taste. One of the worst dinning experiences I have had. The restaurant is very beautiful and the staff is friendly.
Fabulous on all counts! Great location, atmosphere and the FOOD!!! Wow! Servers are wonderful - very gracious and knowledgeable. They also made us feel comfortable to sit back and relax. LOVE the Happy Hour specials as well. Highly recommended.
I chose to come here for my birthday with my family because a friend brought me here once before and I really liked it. The ambience was very nice and enjoyable. We were seated outside, so it wasn't noisy at all; we were able to talk without shouting, and hear without having to lean in. Our waitress was awesome! She was full of cheer and energy, answered all of our questions, helped us make some decisions, and took very good care of us the entire time. The food was excellent! Everyone enjoyed the food they ordered, even my dad and brother in law who are pretty picky with food and not big fans of healthy anything. Overall, we had a great evening and enjoyed our meal here. I look forward to coming back again.
Like always great
Half of our order had a problem. Lemonade tasted like honey water, smoothie went to wrong table, burrito had no avocado In it although we were assured it contained avocado. Food made all of us extremely gassy...
Introduced a colleague to TFKP tonight! She was very impressed with the service (Emily was great) and loved her ancient grains bowl w/ tofu! Ty TFKP crew for another fabulous evening! We are grateful!
The food was both tasty and healthy. The service was extraordinary. Amandais outstanding!!
The pad Thai is amazing
Food was good however on a slow night the service was subPar
Good food. Service was great. OK wine selection. No view but they do have patio seating.
