I made a 1:00 reservation on Open Table for 2 and when I arrived they hostess had NO reservation for me. I had an email confirmation but NO reservation. It was a busy day, but thankfully there was an available table. Not a great first impression. The food was ok, but nothing to rave about and overpriced for what it was and what I got.

I'm a believer. I've been converted. It took me a few tries but I have found what I love at True Food...
The banana pancakes are phenomenal. The asparagus appetizer... scrumptious. So fresh and bursting with fruity zest! The asparagus appetizer has these pickled strawberries that are special af. I could've eaten a whole bowl of them. It also has lemon ricotta. Can't go wrong there.
The banana pancakes are 500 calories, and use clever ingredients like quinoa, Greek yogurt, and sliced bananas in their batter so the pancakes are extremely dense and rich tasting for such a modest calorie count.
I thought this place was too expensive at first, but I realized that it's really about the careful, artistic preparation and the truly popping flavor combinations. Fresh, healthy, Instagram-worthy plating, and great service make True Food Kitchen a winner.

Overall food was very flavorful and a nice location/ambiance for an nice dinner for two. We sat outside. If you're really hungry you'll likely leave hungry as well as the portion sizes of the entrees we ate (Red Fish and Cauliflower Polenta) are not what I would call 'typical' in North Texas. We would definitely recommend True Food Kitchen and will be back.....may have a light meal before we get there.

As a frequent diner at True Food it is most often really good. Not everything is executed to it's potential but the dishes that are are very good. Service is always friendly. This past visit was lackluster. Our server was very nice and accommodating but service was slow... Our main lunch dish was chopped salad - both of us asked for a different item to be deleted but both salads were served without dates in addition, and lacking flavor. Also sent a drink back. My hope in writing this is to encourage management to raise the bar just a little. This is one of our favorites places and would encourage people to go. Salmon dish and turkey burger are really good !

We had a delightful and tasty meal Saturday night with a vegetarian and vegan friend. There was something delicious on the menu for everyone. We enjoyed the brussel sprouts, charred cauliflower, fig & onion tart, turkey burger, a curry dish, a tofu teriyaki bowl, and another bowl. Everything was flavorful and met our expectations. The only complaint I have was the noise level--very hard to converse with our group-but that won't stop us from going back. Overall 2 thumbs up!

If you’re in the mood for healthy but delicious and full of flavor food this is your spot. The food is absolutely incredible all of it is organic and clean, majority of it is dairy free, and everything has a gluten-free option. Their drinks are fresh fruit delicious one of a kind, they have the most amazing organic wine! if you like Cabernet I highly recommend the farmstead if you’re in the mood for healthy but delicious and full of flavor food this is your spot.

If you want fantastic service be sure to ask for James he’s always very attentive and helpful with the menu. Although we’ve never had bad service there regardless. The hummus is absolutely delicious, the salmon again it is so flavorful, the ancient grains bowl is one of my favorites. But you really just cannot go wrong.

Truely Horrible. The two ladies in the front were just truely rude to us. They sat atleast 4 people before us when we were clearly waiting before them. Not sure what was the issue. When I inquired they mentioned that they did online reservations. Which is total bull because I checked the reservations online and they had tables till last minute. They were just stalling for some reason. Well to hell with True Food Kitchen. There are plenty of other restaurants which we can choose from. The owner was actually very nice. Just had problems with two women in the front.

Although the manager jumped in and tried to help our server was bad, the Brussels sprouts were amazing but everything else was just okay and not worth the prices. Poor wine list. To each there own but I wouldn’t recommend it and will definitely not be back. The service is absolutely horrible.

The Pad Thai bowl was too spicy, and it was not listed as being spicy like the Spicy Korean bowl. Also my side of sweet potato bites, almost half of them were very undercooked and crunchy, practically raw. I went on a busy Saturday night, but it didn't leave me super impressed :-/
