We were very disappointed when we arrived for our reservation at 6pm only to be told there was not a table available for us and would have to wait another 20 (or longer) for one to open up.
Now normally if we had the time we would have been happy to wait but we had movie tickets and needed to eat and then get out...hence the reason for making a “reservation”!
We ended up sitting at the bar which was not what we wanted...it was very uncomfortable.
Shame on True Foods for not honoring our reservation. This is the first time, ever, this has happened to us so we won’t be back because what’s the point, you don’t take your patrons reservations seriously!

I have been to two locations now, Downtown and, most recently, The Woodlands. The food and service is simply outstanding. Our highlight was the Edamame Dumplings. Out of this world good. This is our new favorite restaurant.

We were seated promptly, our server was great, they even accommodated us by splitting a dish!
We had a cocktail from the bar and it was deliciously hand crafted.
The food is quite good and flavorful as well as being healthy.
My only negative is that it is so loud, you can’t speak softly!!!!

Food had great flavors. Although we rated it a three because both my husbands chicken and my shrimp were dry-over cooked.

First time here. TFK (True Food Kitchen) has set the bar high. Drinks, appetizers, entrees, and dessert were all exceptional. Eating local and with the season is what we all need to strive for. TFK has the idea and executes it to perfection. The service was exceptional as well. Staff is highly trained to speak on the menu and caring if it’s not to your liking. We’ll be back very soon!

Food is fairly good and fresh but not a unique dining option. Nice to find relatively low in calories dessert. Staff needs more training. Our waitress was very pleasant, however girls at the door didn’t assist my disabled husband with the door, just looked and smiled. Not a nice last memory of the place as we were leaving.

$15 for a glass of house wine. Buyer beware. Overpriced for quality of food and service. Go next door to Grotto.

The food was delicious and the vibe fantastic. Only disappointments were the drinks (watermelon lemonade and the cava, a bubbly served in a shallow glass). Hearty portions and a hit w my tweens.

Always Amazing Experience! Only very slight drawback is Drink prices are a bit steep & some fish dishes are pushing $30. Can be a healthy ticket for a party of 4 or more. Would make it a more regular dine out experience for us if it was 10-20% less expensive.

The food was quite good and the servings ample. We spent four hours eating and visiting with our friends and never once was in need of anything ❤️. The service was awesome and we were totally undisturbed by others or the staff. They handled all our needs without distraction, thank you.

True Foods always come through with a flavorful meal. This time it was seasonal flatbread and ancient grains bowl with Salmon. They do a great job on salmon every time. Never dry.
I typically prefer locally owned restaurants but True Foods is an exception I’ll keep making.
