At True Food, we have a simple philosophy: serve seasonal, honest food that tastes really good. We’re a group of health-minded people that care about what we put in our bodies, as well as the footprint we leave on the environment. The ingredients coming in the back door are clean, mostly organic (we follow the Dirty Dozen) and never fake or artificial. Whether you're into the latest superfood salad or just want a pizza and burger, you'll find it here. Want a blended juice or a martini? We've got both. The chefs make everything from scratch, which means you'll know what's in your food and where it came from. At the end of the day, it's all about great food and great service.

Food is great, we love the fig and goat cheese flatbread appetizer and AMAZING cocktails. Love the ginger margarita! Place is always clean and inviting. Service was just ok, but definitely could use improvement. Our server brought cocktails but no water, and checked on us twice at the beginning of our entrees however no follow up within the 30 minutes after that. Our empty plates weren’t cleared until we were signing the check. Otherwise, good place to meet and gather.

Was a casual lunch between friends. I had dined at a location in Atlanta previously and suggested the spot to my friend. Upon arrival we were seated promptly and the waitress came by fairly quickly after we sat down. We asked for a couple of samples of the refreshers and water. The waitress brought those by and came back a few minutes later to take our order.

I ordered the ancient grains bowl and added chicken. When it arrived it did not have chicken but I didn’t say anything because I’m not the person that does that. It was good and I was full after eating it anyway so the missing chicken didn’t bother me.

What bothered me was that after receiving payment we never saw the waitress again. We stayed for awhile because we were catching up. Our water glasses were near empty and no staff came by to refill. Having worked in a restaurant, I understand she was probably annoyed we were taking up her table, but it was not during a peak time and I saw her working other tables. Regardless of whether she wanted us to leave or not, a refill would have been good customer service.

Overall I would return because I feel like this was a one off situation.

Great! Edamame dumplings so clean tasting and soooo good. Enjoyed the fig flat bread and my husband loved the Chicken and fennel pizza. Whiskey mule was a nice twist and very well balanced. This will be a regular place for our weekly dining. McKinzie and the management team were attentive and very kind.

We really enjoyed our meal at True Food. No worries about hidden ingredients, no worries about any physical reaction to the food, as everything we had was fresh and not refined. Finally a restaurant I can eat at with no worries.

It took about 10 mins for anyone to come to our table and even greet us. Then about 2-3 different people came to the table and finally we figured out who our actual waitress was.... husband hated the chairs. But the food was very good.

That certainly isn't our standard of business operations and has been addressed and corrected immediately. I'm glad you enjoyed your food and I look forward to the next time you are in. Let us know next time and we can switch a chair out for you to a more comfortable one if possible for your husband. Kindest Regards, Larry Plaisance General Manager

LOVE True Food! As a vegan it's hard to find dedicated vegan food. You usually have to end up cobbling something together from the menu but at True Food there are so many dedicated vegan dishes as well as plenty of vegetarian options that you can make vegan. I have never had anything there that wasn't delicious! The service is always on point as well!

The food was great and I bought my husband because of my first visit. We are retired. We wanted a few drinks but were made aware only of the cocktails. I had the sangria which was a glass of ice with small pieces of fruit, $11. My husband had one small glass of something, $13. Our bill was around $70. It was my birthday dinner and i was dissappointed that we couldn't celebrate more due to price and us being on social security. When the dinner was over and we got the bill, I was then made aware of the $5 menu . We had a reservation for 4:30 on a Thursday so we should have qualified. We wont be back nor will I suggest this to friends because they can't afford it either. They are also older. So , I guess this place is not for folks like us. I'm just disappointed about the whole thing. Why we weren't given the Special Hours menu first , I don't know but we could have done more and stayed longer if they had.

We love true food kitchen and everything I try is even better than the last! My daughter is breastfeeding and I have to cut certain things out of my diet due to her allergies and true food is always accommodating. And the fall menu is excellent! I love the butternut squash pizza and the unbeatable burger. My husband abs older daughter love it as well

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.
