Disgusting food not even fit for my pet - inedible. Waiter failed to note the food allergies on the second order and included items specially requested for elimination. If not noticed when it arrived, it could have made me VERY ill. Overall - awful.
We enjoyed the food very much. Service was good too.
As always, this place is Awesome!
Good food but, a bit pricey.
Terrible terrible service. I had reservations and the hostess was going to seat us in an area were a drink was split. She proceeded to have us wait for another table while she seated walk-ins. Our waiter was unfriendly and took forever to bring us water. People who were seated after us got their food and drinks before us. It’s unfortunate how terrible the service was but the food was good!
Less tables made the "sound"' inside so much better!! Sorry to report. It's always a bit noisy with a FULL house!
Service was friendly but very slow.
I cannot believe the lack of attention to the ladies room - soap containers were empty, only one faucet with running water.
Andrew Weil needs to make a visit to see how this place runs now.
Sigh. I like True Food Kitchen when it works, but service (often a challenge) and food (usually good) didn't completely work on this visit. My first time at brunch and I tried their scrambler. I asked how many eggs were included in the scrambler and I was told 5 oz. Not helpful. The waitperson goes back to the kitchen area to whomever is assisting him, and he returns and says it's 2-3 eggs. Well, the dish had lots of the asparagus, onions, etc., but slim on the eggs; really slim. Wasn't even close to 2 eggs; and the dish was under seasoned. Oh well. The edamame dumplings, as always, were good. My companion was satisfied with his steak tacos. We both had the flourless chocolate cake, and it was OK; nothing spectacular. I did like the maitre d service upon arrival - friendly, smiled, and actually said "hello." Overall, the waitperson service was mediocre. He was nice enough, and wasn't offensive, but being nice doesn't always equate to adequate or good service. Maybe he was new?? I find service, at most restaurants during the pandemic, a challenge. Thus, it's difficult to provide a really great tip with borderline service. And even less if the s/he is not adequately supported by the back of the house/kitchen manager.
Our dinner is very good, drinks were excellent. Service excellent. That’s why we come back. We’re satisfied. Thanks
Server was conspicuously pushing us to hurry up and finish. Very annoying
We ate outside so the noise depends on how many people passing by, but there is no traffic noise because the restaurant is located in a pedestrian plaza. Enjoyed watching people go by.
When the meal was served, the aroma was the first thing I noticed. It was so pleasing I just sat and inhaled for a minute or two. The flavors were amazing. I had the ancient grains bowl. They really know how to use herbs and spices. I’m definitely going back.
This was our first time here and it was absolutely delightful. Came for our daughter's birthday. Food was light and fresh and delicious. Service was very attentive. We will definitely be back.
Waitress was awesome. So great. Limeade delicious. Portions are small but yummy.
Good food and highly recommend.
Always excellent food. Service was amazing. Very attentive.
Love the eclectic food and fun service.
Noise level even on outside patio high,
cannot eat in main room.
Has a great experience. This was my first time trying & the food was AMAZING
I go to True Foods often but sometimes the food is hit or miss. The last time we ate there my companion ordered a salmon salad and it came with chicken, which was dry and when they brought the salmon it was overcooked. I've heard this complaint before.
Celebrating my daughter’s Birthday we were a party of five. The server was phenomenal, but the noise level is too loud and difficult to hear one another at the table. I didn’t care for the tomato soup or GF chocolate cake dessert. The gluten-free pita bread was under done and floppy as was the GF pizza crust. My Lasagna Bolognese sauce was cool at best, but the center was warm. Service was slow, but I think that’s normal for this location.
Great service and food was very satisfying. Will be coming back.
Tha waiter was very accommodating and moved us from the outside to the inside when we asked. Very friendly and happy staff to make our experience the best!!
The food was amazing! Service superb! They work as a team and are a great support to each other. Andre was fabulous and so welcoming.
Service was very slow, took a very long time to get things, and had to ask server for things more than once.
Wonderful food and service! Love it
Pleasant experience; good food; a bit disappointed in that the seating hostess did not relay the fact that this was a 70th birthday celebration......
My sister and I had a delightful early dinner. The food (Edamame Ravioli and Lasagna with Fennel Chicken) was delicious! We both enjoyed it very much!
Heather was pleasant & attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious as usual
Hi Agnes, Thank you so much for your feedback. Ill be sure to share this with Heather.
Truefoods is always great. Cocktails and food! Love the chopped salad and the burger!
Hi Tracey, Thank you for your awesome review.
I love this restaurant because it offers a lot of variety on the menu- something for everyone, whether you’re vegetarian, vegan or a meat lover. I love the roasted cauliflower starter and the Cobb Salad.
It’s casual with an easy, breezy vibe for both lunch and dinner. You could wear anything and feel comfortable.
In my experiences, the service has always been warm and friendly- very welcoming and accommodating.
I highly recommend True Food Kitchen for a spontaneous break from shopping or a planned girls night out or a date night, especially if you lean toward healthier (and flavorful) food and also like a full bar to accompany it.
Hi Suzy, Thank you for sharing such a wonderful experience with us. Glad we were apart of such a grand time. We look forward to your next shopping or Girls night out trip soon.
Simple, delicious food. Attentive staff. Clean, modern set up. Good range of beverages.
Fun meeting with friends, two of whom were vegans. Lots of great choices!
Delicious food, great service
Thank you for your feedback and review
Excellent food and great service. I will definitely go back.
Hi Suzy, We look forward to having you back soon.
Great food, service, and overall - happy!
Glad to Hear Happy and Excellent Service. We look forward to your return.
We had a nice, healthy meal out. Good choices for everyone in a pretty setting.
Hi Anne, Thank you for your review and so glad you enjoyed our ambiance.
Having first visited True Food Kitchen in Newport Beach I have to give my local TFK a try. Nice atmosphere, generous seating and a menu of delicious choices. Had the shrimp tacos. Initially surprised by the small portion I later discovered it was exactly the right size. Very tasty too. Had the Salmon Quinoa bowl in Newport Beach previously. Very delightful dish.
Hi Mike Thank you for stopping in to your neighborhood TFK. Glad we lived up to the expectation here in Walnut Creek. Cant wait to have you back soon.
Andre the manager is the best!! He is very customer service focused and he always makes sure we are taken care of. The food is delicious always!!
My daughter treated me to Mother’s Day brunch here - my first visit. The menu had so many appealing options for a healthy , yet filling meal . The outdoor seating was covered from the blazing sun that day , the servers were friendly and the whole experience has made me a definite fan . I will be back !
Hi Ann, That is awesome. We are just as thrilled to welcome you in the TFK fan Family. We cannot wait to have you back soon.
Very exciting environment with tasty, modern food.
Thank you for your feedback.
Food was overly salty. Several items on the menu were out. Ancient grain bowls were goopy. Very disappointed compared to previous visits several years ago
