If you're in the area and looking for good, healthy options, look no further. The menu has something for everyone in your group, whether they're gluten free, vegetarian or vegan or meat eaters. We sat outside on the covered patio. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service professional. All in all, a good experience.

Both the service and the food were fantastic! It's rare to find a restaurant that has so many gluten free options already on the menu, and even more customizations they can do to make a starter or entree safe for us to eat.

We tried this for a birthday lunch, booked ahead to get a quiet table on the covered patio. If you have any hearing issues, NEVER sit inside. Decibel levels equal same as a jack-hammer, so you scream at each other to be heard. We were great outside, and people-watching some bizarro fashion statements and phone focused millenials - too funny. OK.
Our server was marvelous, well-informed, pleasant. Our FRESH salads were great, just a bit light in volume but still enough. You can ask for more dressing too. The chia seed pudding was a tasty first, and whipped coconut milk cream a lovely addition we split. SO glad we booked ahead since we got right in and could hear each other. Just don't sit inside unless you want to risk further hearing loss - sigh.

I've dined here numerous times, but this will probably be my last. I went with a party of 6, including 2 children, 8 and 11. One ordered a kid's meal, but didn't touch it, the other a pizza for $12.00.

We ordered the raw veggies on ice which was good, but expensive. The best item we ordered was the flatbread with caramelized onions for about $10.00.

For dinner, my son and I both ordered the grass fed steak tacos. For $17.00 you get 2 small tacos and a side of beans. The tacos were mediocre and the beans were extremely salty. A very poor value for $17.00.
One other adult ordered the grass fed burger and said it was just average.

My wife ordered the lasagne and said it was good, so she was the only one who enjoyed here meal.

We were also very cramped in an outside table that was really only big enough for 4 people.

All in all, I cannot recommend this restaurant. Average food and very high prices.

Cold air blowing on first table then moved waited too long to be served.
What we ordered was not what we got to the table Too many beens and peas in the Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl. In fact they are not listed on the menu. My wife’s meal was good and so were the appetizers.

We love this popular place when we are looking for casual dining for tasty, mostly if not all, organic food. We were thrilled to see there is one in Pasadena where our son lives, so we will visit that one also.

Brought my teenage granddaughter here for lunch. There really wasn't anything on the menu for her. She ended up with the kale salad. We asked if they could do a caesar salad for her but they either couldn't or wouldn't. We then asked if they could do half kale and half romaine and they said yes, but when the salad came it was almost all kale with just a few pieces of romaine. She got the dressing on the side thankfully. The dressing was terrible. Our server was great and brought two other dressings for her to try. One of them was o.k. not great but o.k. She had asked to have chicken added to the salad and it was just o.k. She had thought about having pizza but doesn't like tomatoes and three out of their four pizzas had tomatoes on them. It was a really disappointing experience from a food standpoint. The staff and especially our server were great but this is not a place to bring a young person. She also thought about having the chicken wrap but doesn't like feta cheese, pomegranate and tahini. Our server graciously took the cost of the salad off our bill. In my view, their dishes and ingredients are too complicated. People today are looking for clean simple food. Not sure why this place is so popular unless its one of those places you go to to see and be seen. Really disappointing overall.

The only reason why I come to Scottsdale Arizona is for this restaurant. This has to be the best food and the best service I've ever had in my life. We do not have any of these restaurants in New York from where I am from. I look forward to the consistent great service and absolutely delicious food with delicious ingredients every single time.

Everything was delicious! The service however was a little sub par. It took about 10 min for our drinks to come, even longer for our waters to be dropped off, and the food came out before we were given silverware!! I asked the guy that dropped off our food for some and he never came back. We just sat a looked at our food until i finally waved another server down and had to ask for silverware. ? We only saw our waiter for our order and didn’t see him again until he dropped off the check. Never checked in. Other than that. Everything was great. I understand it gets busy, but guests should never feel like they are forgotten about.

The wait staff ignored my husband's 70th birthday despite my reservation and request for a birthday dessert. The service was slow in spite of the restaurant being busy but not jammed. The noise level was awful...
The food was good but in the last year the portion sizes have most definitely become smaller. One of our guests ordered a salad with salmon for his dinner and the portion skimpy, more like a side salad.
True Foods used to be one of our favorite places---we actually dined there two or three times a week...not the same now!
