True Food Kitchen - Walnut Creek
Book your next event with us
In a shopping mall with convenient parking next door and 3 hours free. Open design. Would have been less noisy outside. Excellent flavors and presentation. Many healthy choices including vegetarian.
Always delicious food!
LOVE the Kale Aid and the Poke Bowl. Everything is super fresh and delicious. I love coming back and trying new dishes on the menu!
Enjoyed the experience!
Love True Kitchen. Always look forward to the Grain Bowl - although this time the tofu was soft and mushy and the sweet potatoes overcooked and mushy. disappointing. The Edamame Raviolis were delicious as was the cauliflower appetizer.
I think asking for $6 to add tofu to a Korean noodle dish is high. I realize all prices are high because Broadway Plaza charges a lot for rent but still...would eat there more often if prices were lower. Atmosphere, service good outside. Too noisy inside for comfortable conversation.
Always FRESH and delicious! Plus it is a healthy choice for dining!
First flatbread corn appetizer was awful 4 pieces the Tom, corn pesto and cheese were on the middle two pieces. The two outer pieces had arugula only. Staff never bothered to stop by table. Then enter arrived. Always order Ancient Grain bowl w Tofu. You could tell a different chef this day. Tofu and sweet potatoes always sautéed. No this time. Very mushy. Sweet potatoes skin was left on. This ruined the whole dish. Couldn’t eat it. Serve red never returned(he) until she dropped off check. Guess he went in break so no kne bothered to cover our table. Just did take out the Thursday before. Food sat in back and by the time it came out it was cold. I had to leave. Spoke to Mgr and she could have cared less. She stated she would speak to staff. Didn’t offer to remake or credit my bill.
Very tasty and beautifully presented, healthy and great selections for all diets, including vegan. Ability to protein-it-up with variety of choices. Will definitely eat there again!
We love it here! It’s our favorite place to go. The people that work there are always nice and the food is yummy.
Rude hostess and didn’t have table for us after our reservation
Great food and wonderful service. Had fresh corn and heirloom tomatoe flat bread along with a wonderful salad.
I love eating here. Our friend is allergic to nightshades. They took out their recipe book to make sure that her meal was safe. It was delicious
True Food Kitchen is an amazing restaurant! The food & service is always wonderful and the atmosphere is very pleasant,earthy and fun. So excited to go again and again!
I cannot recall our server's name, but she was so bubbly, polite and a breath of fresh air. Also recommended a fabulous sauv blanc! You are lucky to have her!
The salmon was supposed to be medium but was a little overdone. The rest of the food was good as usual.
My husband and I met friends for lunch at True Food Kitchen in Walnut Creek. It was our first and shall be our only experience there. We eat out several times a week and over the years I have only ever written a single negative review of a restaurant. This will be my second one.
On every score, our experience was negative. The menu was pretentious; the food mediocre and overpriced; the portions small; and the service appalling in spite of the fact the restaurant was not crowded.
Just in terms of the service, this was our experience: we were given only 2 menus for 4 people at our table and we had to request and wait for additional menus. We had to request silverware. Two appetizers, both of which required serving spoons, arrived with just one spoon. No one cleaned the table between courses and it needed it. The server presented us with one dessert menu for 4 people. After we ordered 2 desserts and only one arrived; we reminded the server and still the second dessert still never arrived. We gave up.
And finally, when I went to the restroom, I discovered there was no toilet paper, which in retrospect, seems on a par with the overall experience.
I LOVE True Food Kitchen! Mostly from our experiences at the Phoenix location. Been there 5x. We go to the WC location about every other month. Food is always wonderful. Seasonal dishes too. I usually give them 5 stars but the arrogance of the hostess and wait staff tainted our experience. Our female server acted like she didn’t have time for us or the table next to us. She wouldn’t linger and listen while we were deciding on our final choices to order, wanting her input. She just abruptly left the table each time without saying a word. She needs to learn about “service”. This was not her first night. This location needs to find mature staff which I realize is a challenge given the spoiled adult kids in this area. We tipped her well hoping to encourage her to do better next time.
We had to wait a long time for our food.
Very interesting menu. Great selection of entrees. Lots of vegetarian options. Enjoyed the food, freshly prepared. The restaurant is big, high ceilings, with lots of metal and cement. Like being in an aircraft hangar. Not cozy at all. Very difficult to have a conversation with all the noise. We went on a Saturday night during the dinner hour. Next time will try an off-peak hour.
The food was outstanding but it is incredibly noisy inside.
We ate outside where it was much quieter. When inside, the noise level made it hard to carry on a conversation.
Good food good service but very loud. Consider making reservations the place is packed around lunchtime
This is a convenient location to meet at Broadway Plaza. The dining room has high ceilings and is very loud for conversation, so we sat outside, which was pleasant. The service was just OK--no refills on water, for example. The food was tasty, although I found $5 for iced tea with sparkling water to be high, even for this locale.
Love this place. Great food wonderful service.
The experience at any True Food is always a treat. Tasty and so healthy. This location is nice, great servers and food. The patio is not as noisy as the main room. The bar is spacious and bright.
I really enjoy the seasonal items.
Great place, interesting menu --some items a bit pricier than other places but definitely a lot of choices. Always good service!
The food was great overall. We ordered a watermelon and tomato salad but the tomato’s were not flavorful or ripe. Otherwise the meal was great.
we sat outside so very little noise. service was EXCELLENT. Food very good.
Great customer service. We wanted to split our entrees and without asking, they brought those items out on separate plates and bowls. Very thoughtful of them. We ordered lots of food and wanted to sample everything. There food is so fresh. We loved the Spicy Curry & the salads. This is my favorite spot to eat healthy and delicious food.
Always a great experience when eating at the Walnut Creek location.
The food tends to be good every time, though my friend did not like the cauliflower polenta very much at all...no substance, and no polenta!! Just ground cauliflower. I did enjoy my Ancient Grain bowl a lot. For both however the amount of food for the price (15) was very, very small considering it is only vegetables - and grains in mine. In a relatively small oblong bowl our food covered the bottom 1/4 or so, maybe a bit more. I was hungry within about 90 minutes and we were there for dinner. Also, the level of noise is so high it was very hard to hear or understand our waiter and to hear each other talk across the table. I was pretty disappointed to be honest, as my last experience there was much better - better food to price quality and quantity for sure. Also, I ordered iced green tea and the waiter refilled it twice with black tea, saying the pitcher was labeled wrong. I am not sure if they were understaffed or if they are cutting corners due to how popular they are and thus not having the same need to impress with higher quality...I don't know that I will go back. It was my fifth time going there so I had called it a "favorite" for when I was in the Walnut Creek area.
Our server Diamond was so thoughtful and amazing. She was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.
Great healthy food at good prices!
It's a great place for a special meal. The service complements the amazing food.
I have been before, but my friend had never been. We both loved it! Such good food and great service.
Server was fantastic!!!
Service was the best we’ve had there. I always love the food. The cocktails seem to always have a very light pour of alcohol, but it was yummy.
I absolutely LOVE eating here but I can only eat outside. It is SO INCREDIBLY LOUD inside! It’s just sensory overload for me.
