Visited True Food Kitchen for the first time on Saturday 8/1. The service was good and the employees were kind. But- the food was actually bad, and it’s rare to actually get bad food. We ordered the corn and tomato flatbread which came out partially burnt with barely any corn on it, despite its name. They covered it in arugula seemingly to cover up the fact that one of the main ingredients on the dish was missing. We also ordered the burger- that came out overcooked, dry, tasteless, and the sweet potato hash was cold. Finally the Margherita pizza- it was bland. It was the type of pizza I’d expect at Dodger stadium, not at a popular restaurant. Overall was very disappointed. We had looked forward to trying this restaurant which always seems so busy and we couldn’t believe that all 3 items we ordered were so bad. We really wanted to like this place. Of course we understand how COVID has challenged restaurants and that not everything will be functioning up to typical standards, but the food we experienced just has no excuse. The staff were kind and in light of everything we didn’t want to complain or make issues for them, but unfortunately we will not be coming back.
This is a great find and incredible tasty foods and dishes for those who want quality items. I will definitely be back here!!
I really like the healthy food and good place to meet with my girlfriends.
Always great! And they're doing a good job with serving customers safely.
Great Quality food. You will love it! Everything ordered at table was above average!
I’m a huge fan of True Food in Pasadena, they never disappoint! I felt safe and enjoyed my experience as always!
Great food and service. Good social distancing protocol in place. Will definitely go back.
All menu items are healthy per dietary guidelines established by Dr.Weil. Portion sizes are on the smaller size.
A little on the $$$ pricey side but a great alternative to healthy eating.
As always very nice! It is one of our favorite spots. The food is clean and healthy and consistently good.
We went there for our anniversary. I stated that it was for a special occasion and they tried to seat us at a terrible table. I asked for them to re-seat us.
The menu is hard to read with the small print and I am gluten free and didn't see that the salad had farro in it which is a gluten GRAIN. Why put it in there?
Also I asked for water at least twice and we were never brought water. The waiter even said he would bring us water and didn't.
Not sure I would dine here again based on this experience. It was expensive and not enjoyable.
Discovered this place when we wanted to eat in an open patio! We were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and the service was fast. We’ll return!
Great outdoor dinning with more than ample social distance between customers. Sanitizers close at hand. Staff super conscious of sanitizing tables , chairs, etc. Bathrooms immaculate. Overall dine with out worry of becoming contaminated.
This restaurant is open but it certainly does not have its act together during Covid. I found the hostess and wait staff to be aloof. The food is mediocre. But it’s one of the only places that was open and Pasadena during Covid.
My family’s 1st time at TFK they absolutely were impressed. Beautiful day, great company, healthy tasty food and drinks. During these unprecedented times, felt like a get away even for such a short period of time! The employees have a plastic face coverings and masks. I’m so happy this restaurant cares for the safety of the employees and customers.
Very enjoyable lunch outside
great place for outdoor dining during this pandemic. Food reasonably priced and lots of
space between tables. Wait staff was very courteous and helpful.
Great. Attentive staff. Seating is separated.
Great night. Social distancing was accomplished and we all felt both safe and cared for. And the flatbread was fantastic as was the salmon. Nice break from the constant worries of the times.
My second time at this restaurant...this time during COVID. Exceptionally clean, following all great protocol etc.
Wonderful server (Cat) and exceptional food!
True Foods Pasadena is a safe and comfortable place to break your severe isolation by al fresco dining.
We really enjoyed it!
Great service, cool ambiance and really solid food.
Great food! I’ll be back.
Met old friends here to catch up and our waitress was a pure joy and delight! Under these unknown and stressful times the staff was very respectful and cautious. The food was delicious and ambience was fabulous. Thank you for making our get together such a wonderful experience. So grateful to get out for a bit and feel safe in doing so. Highly recommended ♥️
Always a wonderful experience!
Wonderful service with social distancing and patio seating
First time at a restaurant since early March. We were celebrating my recent retirement. Great meal and service. We were very pleased
Excellent service and food! Even with all the covid restraints, the staff was very courteous and friendly. We had a great time and the food was excellent!
Super clean and the service was great! Burger was tasty but overall not too many menu options. Understandable in the current climate.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Pasadena True Food. The patio setting was pleasant and spacious--plus, the efforts to socially distance were reassuring and unobtrusive. We shared the jack fruit lettuce wraps for an appetizer: spicy yet refreshing--the only thing I would have added was a dipping sauce, maybe a sweet chili sauce? Still it was great. I had the vegan pizza (the almond ricotta was amazing) and my husband had the turkey burger: we both really enjoyed the entrees! Finally, we finished up with the banana chia pudding (delicious) and the brownie a la mode. It was such a nice, relaxing evening, and the service was friendly and helpful. A lovely evening!
Except for the outside only dining (understandable due to the pandemic) with the summer heat, it was a bit too hot for us! But the food was just worth it all! Absolutely loved it!
Everything was great. The food all of was good. .
Nice meal, not spectacular, but very satisfying
This was my first time there. Great space, lots of outdoor seating and well spaced out to conform to social distancing guidelines. The employees were wearing masks and some were wearing face shields. The food and drinks were amazing! It’s a bit pricey, but overall a great experience as we begin to venture out during this pandemic.
I have dine in few months back.... food & service was great! Was back yesterday & things was quite chaos.
The burger was super dry, & the server forgot to order my replacement after I checked on it!
Only the pizza was ok with our 4 orders!
Don’t know if I want to go back again....
I love this restaurant, had a wonderful time and my date loved it as well.
Came to have lunch for my moms birthday! Everything came out great ! Service was amazing, manager came to check on us several times! They also gave my mom a bday dessert! Will definitely be back soon!
Kellyne was an amazing host. She was a joy to have as a server. Looking forward to more True Food meals.
I love that the food is good and that I can also bring my dog with me.
This is a very grid space for dining as the restrictions lighten - plenty of room and great attention to cleanliness and distancing.
