We particularly enjoy the rotating / new menu selections and the flexibility to accommodate vegan preferences. Service is always high quality, friendly, and helpful.

I was surprised that what seemed like a handful of grilled chicken in my plate as an add-on cost me an extra $4, however the dish overall was delicious and the vibe of the restaurant was clean and vibrant. Both hostess and waitress seemed bored/as though they didn't want to be there, and didn't reciprocate the general energy of the rest of the restaurant, which was slightly disheartening. Regardless, the food came in a timely manner and I was pleased with the overall quality.

Nice ambiance and friendly staff, but menu description is not sufficient for those with preference/allergies. While staff were nice, their service was not great in that multiple items were delayed or forgotten.

Food seemed to be okay quality, don’t think the price justifies it. Hostess was unfriendly and waitress did not come back to the table after food was dropped off. Overall mediocre.

Always plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. They are very creative, and make healthy food that even my picky 3 and 9 year old enjoy. It is a little bit noisy inside, but the patio is quieter. I especially love the roasted cauliflower and the spaghetti squash. You can eat a lot and feel full and light. I never feel guilty or over-indulged when I leave! Also love the Kale-Aid.

We have been big fans of True Food. I have to say that this past experience was not impressive. Probably the last 3 to 4 experiences have been less than stellar and not what we used to receive in terms of food quality and service.

It took a good 20 to 25 minutes just to get our drinks (2 did not have alcohol). While our server was friendly, she needs more training. One guest was not asked if they wanted another drink. The food was good but something is just not the same since the sale of True Food. Service is not as stellar. From the hostess first point of contact to the staff, it’s just not as sharp.

I’m thinking we will not be coming to True Food like we used to. I’m hoping that service improves.

Excellent service and atmosphere. I always love my dishes there, but my husband thought the burger left a little to be desired. I did not try it, so I cannot say for sure,but a burger is pretty much a staple for him that he doesn’t complain much about usually. The charred cauliflower is my absolute favorite and they always have the best vegan desserts that I can eat, so I always order 2(I have a dairy and egg intolerance). I appreciate that they are always so able to accommodate my food problems. It is a refreshing change. Our server was excellent—I wish I could remember his name.

I wish they would open a location in the east valley (i.e. San Tan or Downtown Gilbert have similar atmospheres that ‘ this concept would do well at),so I could visit more often!

We really love the fresh and vegan options offered at True Foods. We'll return there again and again. The staff is very knowledgeable and offer great suggestions for daily specials and cocktail options. I had the cauliflower polenta that was perfectly seasoned, tasty and hot. My husband enjoyed the turkey burger and cucumber salad, both which he said he would order again. Great wine list and seasonal cocktails. If you haven't tried it, you're missing out!

I had not been to True Food in a year or so but their food was great a few years ago but not great now... I had the grass fed burger and it was so dry and the bun seemed old.. I had half sides of sweet potato hash and kale salad and both were just ok.. I will try True Fiod again probably but their are some other restaurants that serve the same type of organic fresh foods that are so much better.. Thank you!

My family enjoyed a lovely Mother’s Day lunch. The edamame dumplings appetizer is always a favorite! The steak tacos and grilled fish tacos are flavorful and rounded out with a juniper rose cocktail makes perfection.

True Foods has been my go to restaurant for Mother’s Day and birthdays, etc. Not sure if we will continue. They were bought out, and no longer a part of Fox restaurants. Service was not good. Ordered appetizers, then huge long wait til main course. Waitress apologized, but she needs to be on top of that for a well run restaurant like this. Then she says for Mothers Day, they were giving out $10 gift cards. I saw moms walking out of the restaurant with gift cards and small succulents. All the plants were at the hostess station. She didn’t offer me a plant. What’s up with that? I asked about it- and she gave me one. If there’s a special and it’s Mother’s Day, why wouldn’t you make your table feel special. Waitress fail.

I really do love this place but was a bit unhappy with our food that day. My son ordered a medium well hamburger that ended up being pretty much rare - maybe medium rare. My husband and I ordered the spaghetti squash casserole which I have ordered multiple times in the past. It was very bland and tasteless compared to other times - I wonder if they taste their food and how they can so severely under cook their hamburgers?

Good experience, felt we should’ve had a better table. We had a support beam about one inch away from our table for two so it felt pretty cramped with a small table and the support beam just added to the feeling of being hidden.

The food was fantastic as usual and the staff was very friendly.

We love True Food restaurants but were dissatisfied with our latest experience due to:
-Waitress didn’t know how to properly remove the cork from our wine bottle (I had to finish the job) and ended up having pieces in our servings
-I love the Turkey burger and both my wife and I ordered with GF buns but mine was served with a regular bun. The kale salad was tough and not the regular soft baby kale
-Our dinner was very late in getting served to us.

I normally love everything about visiting the restaurant (this was our first time at Biltmore) but this experience was much less than we have enjoyed in the past.
