My date and I visited True Food for restaurant week, and it was amazing! They have gluten and dairy free options for each course. She got the Brussel sprouts, salmon, and squash pie. She said they completely outdid themselves! I got the guac, ancient grains, and chocolate cake. It was unbelievable. I would recommend the squash pie over the chocolate cake; however, if you love sharp, rich chocolate, you can split the vegan ice cream with someone who gets the squash pie. Best meal we’ve had in a while. We also had the pleasure of listening to live music because of sitting on the patio during amazing weather.

Food tasted great but honestly my friend and I both did not feel well like an hour after we left. Believe it had to be something with the sauce in the Brussels because it was the the only thing we shared. My friend called and spoke to the manager, Brandon. He was not very kind and was actually a bit argumentative. If I had a restaurant I would absolutely want to know if anyone got sick from the food we were serving. Someone who does not believe the customer is always right should not be managing. He should have at least credited her card for the Brussels just for good customer service. He told her she could not have gotten sick so soon after. Guess he is a doctor.

As an herbivore in AZ, it's not easy to eat out. So, I love that TFC has so many options for vegans. Everything I've ever ordered has been excellent. The seasonal pizzas are outstanding, as well as the cauliflower and brussel sprouts apps. Barney is as charming as he is efficient. Great service. I'm sure to be back again. Thanks!

First of all- True Foods was my favorite restaurant by far. I love many of their salads, but, their edamame dumplings were to die for. I must have had them 50 times in the past two years (addiction!). Tonight I met a friend at the Kierland location for dumplings. She had had them several times this week as well. Immediately we both said they were completely different- NO taste at all. I believe the dumplings were missing the truffle oil (which would seep into the sauce and make it heavenly). After we sent them back, a young woman next to us said that hers also had no taste- and she had told the server the same thing. They gave us another order, and they were no better. The most disappointing thing about this was the manager’s response. He argued with us several
times, saying that the chef said the recipe was correct. I think three people saying the same thing should have convinced them that something was off. VERY disappointed. I will miss my favorite restaurant 🥲.

We are saddened to hear about your experience with us and would like to apologize. We appreciate the feedback on the dumplings and will work diligently with our chef team to ensure they are being prepared correctly. We never want to lose a loyal guest such as yourself and are honored to have you call us your favorite restaurant. It is an honor that we don’t want to lose. Please call the restaurant at 480.265.4500 and ask to speak to Brandon. I would love the opportunity to correct this.

Do not go to True Food Kitchen if you want to have a nice lunch with a friend with whom you want to 'chat' or 'visit'. It is the loudest restaurant I've ever gone to. Food was tasty...different choices and nice beverage lists.

I thought that perhaps if the weather is nice enough to sit outside, it may be quieter and more acceptable. I'll give it another try when I can enjoy the patio.

The food and service are always consistently good. This visit required us to scan a barcode to pay our check. This was annoying and did took much more time than paying a paper generated check. Our server indicated it saves another touch. I did not agree and wish they would revert back to the old traditional method of paying your check.

Always a good choice to get some innovative healthy alternative preparations to your mainstream favorites. Due to the type and quality of ingredients pricing is a little higher compared to other nearby mainstream options but that is understandable in light of its niche concept.

Am giving a low score on ambience because we were seated outside and cushions were wet. Didn’t realize it till I was soaked. Visiting from Prescott so had to find a shop to buy new slacks so we could spend the remainder of the day. When we pointed it out to several people that worked there, they just shrugged and basically said too bad.
