This was unfortunately another Saturday night at which staff appeared overwhelmed by crowded restaurant. Among other things, we had asked for two special requests/changes to our orders which did not happen (usually not a problem).
We'll have to avoid the restaurant on weekends for now....

We had a very enjoyable lunch here with Edamame Dumplings for starters and then a Beet Burger. This was something we had no previous experience with but decided to be adventurous. That was a really good decision because we enjoyed it immensely. Different, but subtle. Service was good and the wine selection adequate. They always accommodate our seating preferences so long as we book in advance and they are always friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about the menu items.
I highly recommend True Food for a foodie experience that I'm hoping you enjoy as much as we did.

I gave True Food Kitchen three stars although I've given it many 5 star ratings over the years, as the food just wasn't as flavorful and good as it has been in the past. The service was excellent- people there are wonderful- and the ambiance is always great. Their new vegetarian burger made with beets was just fair - really lacked flavor, and the bowl I order with cauliflower polenta and veggies was just okay - not anything I would order again. I will still go back because I appreciate their dedication to following the EWG recommendations, and sourcing organic and local quality ingredients when possible. I think I'll stick to the Chopped Salad which I consistently enjoy there.

This was our first visit to True Food Kitchen and it was fantastic. It certainly lived up to all the hype. Cannot wait to go back. Our server was incredible - provided great service, fantastic recommendations on the wine and dinner choices. And the desserts were equally fabulous.

Too loud. Hard to talk. Food as ok. Not as good as in the past. Waiter ok. Took a long time to get main meal. Bloody Mary’s were blah.

We had a reservation and were seated on the patio which we preferred but it was the worst table. Small 2 top with uncomfortable metal chairs, other tables were either a partial booth or had better wood chairs. When I asked to move was told the other tables were reserved- We also had a reservation! Server was inattentive I now wish I had tipped him less than 20%.

Arizona Restaurant Week for value for money. A glass of wine, appetizer, entree, and dessert for 33$ plus tax was definitely worth the value. Service and ambiance were excellent as usual.

I eat here often but kinda gave it a break over the summer. I was pleasantly surprised that they added a Fall menu. I had the Mediterranean chicken entree and it was delicious. The waiter said it was his favorite as I was trying to decide between a few of the new items so I went with his suggestion. I really hope they keep some of these new dishes on the regular menu.

The dishes we ordered had chicken in them. First of all, both the noodle dish and the curry dish had very little checken in them and the chicken was grilled not steamed like before and the chicken was hard in
texture. The value for the money is not there any more.

Went for a seventy birthday celebration and never were offered desert chooses to order , so we went else where. They Asked name on reservation twice and then cancelled my
Open
Table reservation after we were seated at designated time ! Confused why they did that - I received email when
I got home - open table reinstated points immediately after i emailed them and I’m thankful to them for Timely response .

I had the best salad but I added chicken to it and it came to me dry and chewy. Others that I was with had the steak and they all loved it! Next time it will be steak for me too!

All of the servers at True Food Kitchen that we have had are very friendly and attentive. They make us feel like they really care about our experience. We love the food, and never feel over stuffed, but extremely satisfied. We are making it a habit to go there now, as we are never disappointed.
