Usually service is great, friendly and fun.
On this day there did not appear to be enough servers. We waited and waited at the table
then we noticed we could order on line. We ordered online menu but I prefer looking at
actual menu. Finally when a server was close I -asked him for water, which he eventually
brought. At that time we asked him to look out for our order. He did bring order to table and was friendly. However it was same problem paying the bill.

The food was cold and fish was over cooked. True food kitchen has been one of favorite place to visit over the years, however, the quality and service has gone down. The last time take out order was missing my son's pizza and this time dine-in experience wasn't great. It isn't worth the 30 mins drive anymore.

we ordered the salmon and it was good. I think the edamame dumplings was not really tasty and the wrapper did not taste really good.

I went for Father’s Day. Employees were very friendly. Food was delicious (and healthy lol). Their beverages (especially their Dragonfruit Limeade) was so perfect considering how hot it was. I def will return.

Haven’t been there for a long time. The outdoor tables were full
So we ate inside which was fine since it was so hot outside. Food was very good. Service was good but a little scared but that was fine ... I am looking forward to going back again

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
