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.

I took my brother, his wife and a couple friends. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My sister in law is vegan. She raved about her meal.

There was a dichotomy in service. While the hostess was more than disinterested in her function our server was exceptional. She was attentive and professional. Thank you for turning our experience around!

The soup and the hot drinks was fairly cold when serve, pizza was the best but over priced.
The rest was okay.

True Kitchen was recommended by a friend as a good healthy place to eat pre-show (Cynthia Woods Pavilion). My friends and I were very impressed by the atmosphere, food and convenience to the pavilion. I normally don’t eat cauliflower, but I highly recommend the cauliflower appetizer. The cocktails a very good too.

Very busy pre-show at the Pavilion, but we were seated immediately due to Open Table reservation. It was hot and service was slow, but everyone was working super hard so we didn't mind.

We made reservations here to attend before a concert. The restaurant was very crowded but the service was still exceptional. The hostess was very accommodating as some of my party was late so we pushed back our reservation 30 minutes. They were not put out at all and were very polite about the tardiness of my party. Food was awesome! Overall a very enjoyable experience.

The service was excellent! Very friendly staff. The food was great. Because of the open concept of the restaurant , it could be noisy if full I think but the night we ate there the noise level was fine! Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

Being a recent vegan convert, I was looking for something not only vegan but something that tasted incredibly well! I looked up the menu prior to arriving and knew it was a pizza kind of night for me. I decided to give their Spinach & Mushroom Pizza a try. Let me tell you, it was the best vegan pizza I've ever eaten. I'm not a fan of vegan shreds/"cheese" so I appreciated that it did not have that. Instead, it had tasteful ingredients and a delicious lemon almond ricotta! I am definitely going back and told my husband that I plan to try every vegan dish on their menu, because the experience was just that good.

Overpriced (especially wine), food average, not the same vibe or quality of Houston location. For some reason The Woodlands location just doesn't have what we experienced at other True Food Kitchens. We were very excited when it came to The Woodlands, but somethings missing? Still love True Foods and hope it does well, but we'll stick with Flower Child instead...better value and quality.

True food kitchen changes their menu lately, I don't know if it's just me but I figured some of the items are just not as good as it used to me. And also my side dish sweet potatos are not entirely cooked.
Some new cocktails are pretty good. But I think I won't be going as often like before...

Came here for lunch with my coworker. Amazing food and service and I absolutely love the decor. Our server was new but very knowledgeable about the concept and menu. I can always appreciate good training as I am in charge of training in my office. The patio area is really nice and well covered with shade. I also spoke with a manager and he comped our app for it being our first visit. We will be back!

We had a table near the open kitchen and it was so loud we could not talk at our table. They need some sound absorbing surfaces or to separate the kitchen from the main room.
