We really like the healthy food at True Food Kitchen.
I would have to say yesterday our waiter could
Have been more attentive . I had to ask other waiters for an ice tea refill and ice. Also I did order the burger with lettuce wrap and it came with no mayo. Our waiter didn’t check with us after appetizers or entree how our meals were. I again had to ask another server for some mayo. That server was happy to do it. We are regulars and drive over from Peoria so it is a commitment to come to this restaurant!

We have been frequenting True Food Kitchen for over 12 years… started out at your Biltmore location. and have visited other locations around the country. Today was the absolute worst experience we have ever had at TFK. We waited 20 minutes sitting at the table before a waitress even acknowledged our existence. She took our drink order and then we waited another 15 minutes for her to return to take our food order. Even though the restaurant was only partially filled with customers with a number of empty tables surrounding us, she kept saying she was “jammed!” Then we waited another 40 minutes for the food to be served. No exaggeration! I timed it. The food was really below par. We usually can count on a good healthy meal, but the food was tasteless and mediocre at best. The food experience was truly disappointing since we were celebrating news of my son and daughter-in-law expecting their first child. Our family loves being together so we enjoyed our family time immensely which saved the day. However my husband said if we had been alone he would have complained to the manager on site, not that we really relish doing that! The Scottsdale location should really up their game in everything from customer service to training their waitresses properly, as well as reevaluate how their chefs are preparing their food. We won’t be returning to TFK any time soon after this experience… There are a lot of great restaurants out there. It’s time to move on!

Hi there, I appreciate you reaching out and sharing your experience with us. I am very sorry that your special day was hindered by our lack of service. I can assure you our level of food and hospitality are second to none, and this experience you had was an isolated incident. Please allow me to make it right for you as I know we can show you the True Food experience that you are used to having. We do appreciate your loyalty and an experience like this one is taken lightly. Chris GM

For Father's Day we treated my husband to first restaurant dinner out since the pandemic began over a year ago. So glad we chose True as it was the same delightful experience we had enjoyed in the past. So many healthful but tasty options on the menu, the wait staff pleasant and provided great service and the food was delicious. Our thanks to True for being consistent with the meals and providing a safe dining experience.

There was a little hiccup with our reservation. You have to tell the restaurant in the comments and notes section if you want indoor seating. However, it doesn't say that anywhere so we were sat outside. My parents are older, so outside really wasn't an option for us. The hostess acted quickly and was able to make/find us a table inside without too much of an additional wait.

The food was fresh, healthy and delicious. Our server was fantastic.He was funny and knowledgeable about the menu even though it was new. They had some kid friendly options as well so everyone was able to find something they liked. We tried a few new things that sounded a little bit scary to us not So healthy eaters, and we were pleasantly surprised to find that we liked all of it. Definitely get the dragon fruit limeade refresher.

I want to say thank you again to the fantastic hostess who took care of us this past Friday evening (brown hair white top black pants, I think?) I hope that she is given the recognition that she deserves, she really saved the evening and I don't think she realized how appreciated she was/is.
