Mackenna was our server and was outstanding and knowledgeable. Very energetic and happy spirit. The manager Grant was also amazing and checked in with us and made sure we were enjoying our experience. Appreciated all the extra care and attention. Definitely going back!
Food and service was outstanding.
Quantity was less for each item. Some of the menu items were not available...like the desserts etc
Overpriced, “trendy.” The lasagna was meh. In fairness, the others in my party enjoyed their burgers and wrap.
McKenna our server was great. Went out of her way to welcome us and make us feel at home.
Awesome experience. Thank you
Great food great service great alcohol selection
It was great but we got sat right next to the servers station. Otherwise I would give 5 all the way around
I love this restaurant! Amazing kale salad with blackened salmon. Delicious edamame dumplings! Fabulous charred cauliflower! Yummy vegan Key Lime Pie! Lots of amazing choices. We were in San Diego for one week end we ate at this restaurant 3 times! We just kept coming back!
For a "healthy meal" True Food Kitchen is a rock solid choice. Great menu selections and sizable portions. All of our selections were made from very fresh ingredients. The Kale Cobb was awesome, the Chicken Parm was huge and full of flavor. Our server was extremely patient and put up with our requests and silly behavior. She was a star!
We love this review! Thank you for being silly and having fun all while enjoying our great food and staff. We greatly appreciate you and hope to see you again soon! - Scott
nice but very slow service. Had to wait a long time to place our order.
Great menu, fun cocktails, prompt service
Thank you Katrina! We appreciate your review. We hope to see you again soon. - Scott
Requested an outdoor table in the shade in reservation, but it wasn't available. Long wait
Food is amazing, drinks are even better and the service is the best.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Enjoyable dining experience.
Pax - Thank you for the review. We hope to see you again soon.
Great food. Superb service everyone were so polite and friendly from the waitress to the seated staffs. They are doing awesome service and we enjoyed everything. We come here so many times but we love this place. Prefect place for Friday night hang out or even at lunchtime
Thank you so much for the great review. We hope to see you again soon.
I ordered the turkey burger because it came with some interesting sounding sauces. The sauces lived up to their descriptions, but I would have liked more as the turkey meat needed help with flavor. It had none of its own. Both the accompanying sweet potato hash and lightly dressed kale salad were a delightful addition.
To finish off the meal with a touch of perfection, I shared a flourless chocolate cake and vanilla bean ice cream. Worth returning for!
Marcia - Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again soon! - Scott
Food was good. A little unevenly distributed among similar dishes. Service was excellent.
Thank you for the feedback. We strive to improve everyday. We hope to see you again soon! - Scott
Our server Zoe was super nice and made our visit very enjoyable.
The quinoa burger was not in the menu, Zoe suggested me to try the turkey burger and it was just as tasty.
Yara - Thank you for the review! We are so happy you enjoyed the turkey burger, it is my personal favorite. We hope to see you again soon! - Scott
Great food. Lot of heathy options.
Sowies - Thank you so much for the kinds words. Hope to see you again soon! - Scott
True Foods introduced a few new menu items which are a combination of fresh flavors and healthy dressing. I would recommend True Foods for a healthy enjoyable dining experience!
Toni - We too love the new menu! We are so excited you enjoyed the new dishes. We hope to see you again soon. - Thank you - Scott
Very nice atmosphere and good selection of menu items.
SDLocal - Thank you for the review. We love the new spring menu. We hope to see you again soon. Thank you
Vegan burgers truly excellent. Strawberry smash cocktail also excellent
Terri - We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the vegan cheeseburger. It is a great alternative on our menu. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
I love the food! Can you bring back the black beans with the shrimp tacos?
Susan - Thank you for the review, we greatly appreciate it. Not sure if or when the Anasazi beans will return, but I will pass your review along to our corporate chefs. See you soon! - Scott
Good food. We were seated inside. Ambiance and energy is lacking with half the tables removed and few diners seated inside. It had a lonely, empty feel at 6:30 on a Saturday night. Many other restaurants in San Diego are more open and seating more diners. I look forward to TFK adding more tables back and seating more people.
SanDiegoMan - We are following CDC guidelines and keeping 6 feet between tables. While this does lower the vibe and seem 'empty', we care about our guests and staffs health above profits and jamming people in to create a vibe. We look forward to a time when we can get back to 'normal'. Thank you and we hope to see you again soon
The food was average, price is above average, I understand about the sustainability. The service, I would say, is better in Fashion Valley location.
MoMe - Thank you for you feedback, we are sorry to hear our service wasn't up to standards. We use your review to improve our team and strive to be the best service in San Diego. - Scott
Great Food. It was fresh and hot. Sat outside on the patio, it was perfect! Good for all occasions. Staff was friendly!!
Thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your time with us. See you again soon.
The Dragonfruit Margarita is to die for! The Edamame Dumplings and Guac never disappoint
So glad you enjoyed the new drink on the menu, we hope you join us again soon to try some more new menu items. Thank you!
Great service, waiter was attentive but also gave us our space for visiting. Fresh food and refreshments
Toni - Thank you for the 5 star, we greatly appreciate it. We hope to see you again soon. - Scott
Thank you! Hope your team won the bracket this year! Hope we see you again soon. - Scott
Service was outstanding, especially Grant, who went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. Other than the amazing quinoa pancakes the food was nothing special. We had the brunch scrambled eggs which were overcooked and quite tasteless (no hint of the advertised poblano pepper or cilantro) - smothered in sweet potatoes. The Korean bowl was just ok; hardly any shitakes, almost no veggies,no spice- Have had this at the Fashion Valley location where it's fantastic (as is most of their food). Hope UTC can improve their kitchen!
Karen - Sorry your lunch wasn't up to our or your standards. We will use your feedback to instruct and assist our team be better each and everyday. Grant is a fantastic addition to our management team. We hope to see you again soon!
Great food and service. Food took a very very long time to get to our table. Maybe about 20 min. The appetizer arrived at the same time our meal did.
Brooke - thank you for the review. i am glad you enjoyed everything. I have reviewed our timing with the team and will ensure we get food on in a timely manner. Thank you again and hope to see you again soon.
Fresh and delish every time.
Wheelz - Thank you so much for the review! Hope to see you again soon. - Scott
Good food and large portion. Food but depends on what you order. The turkey, avocado wrap was only fair. Turkey burger is very good.
Sapora - We greatly appreciate the feedback on our chicken avo wrap. The turkey burger is my go to on our menu. We hope to see you again soon! - Scott
Outdoors in the shade.
Caro - Nothing beats a great meal and/or drink in the SoCal spring weather. Hope to see you again soon! - Scott
Incredible food & also plenty of plant based options.
Thank you!! We hope to see you again soon. - Scott
Fulfilling, nourishing, delicious fuel for the body. It satisfied all members of my party, from vegan, vegetarian, to carnivores. Cocktails were well crafted as well.
Thank you for the review! It means a lot to hear people are back and enjoying the food and drinks that TFK has to offer. We are so excited about our spring menu. If you haven't tried the dragonfruit marg, please stop back in and try one, it is a homerun! See you soon. - Scott
Great Service! Food was very well prepared and came out quickly
We could have had 2 more people join us there was so much food
Good value! Ashley was a very good server I will definitely eat there again soon
Sharon - Thank you for the kind words. Ashley has been a fantastic addition to our team. We hope to host you again soon! - Scott
Their modified service is confusing and not customer friendly. It was cold and the heaters weren’t working properly, would light but turn off after 5-10 min. We tried to tell them and they didn’t listen. Instead of helping me navigate around my dietary restrictions by helping me find what I could eat, I had to go through different rounds of ordering and modifying. The waitress suggested items that had my specified allergy in them, so it was confusing!
Kendra- I am deeply sorry we couldn't accommodate your dietary restrictions. We will double up our training with our staff on allergies. We hope to host you again soon, so you can try our new spring menu. - Thank you - Scott
The butternut squash pizza was the best
Thank you for the review! We hope you come back and try the new vegan pizza, spinach & mushroom. Thanks - Scott
