Celebrating a friends birthday - table for 6. Delicious and interesting food and ingredients. Fun cocktails and small not overly indulgent desserts. Price point reflects ingredients as well as reputation, location, atmosphere.

I was assigned the duty to find a restaurant which offered a good variety of vegetarian and non vegetarian options to host out of town coworkers. As a meat eater, I've eaten at True Food Kitchen on several occasions and enjoyed the food and atmosphere but was not sure about any of the vegetarian options. Well, I am happy to report my vegetarian and non vegetarian co-workers all raved about how good the food and atmosphere was. Thank you True Food Kitchen for a great experience.

Still my favorite restaurant in Atlanta!! Their food choices are amazing and their service is friendly and responsive. Eating inside gets rather loud, but not painful. Eating outside is quieter.

The food, as usual, was excellent. I had the chopped salad with salmon. The salmon was perfectly cooked, moist, and delish. I’d received this restaurant to anyone.

We frequent True Food often, as we live a few blocks away. We tried the new summer corn Flatbread, as our appetizers, and it was delicious!! I do not remember our server’s name, but she was very professional and sweet...we always get excellent service. Our reservations are always honored, as the weekends are busy. We recommend True Food very highly.... always a great dinning experience and excellent food!!

This is the 3rd time I’ve had hard cooked chicken, like it’s been sitting out and re-warmed. I expressed it the last time I was there as well. I’ll just get shrimp next time, again.

Meh. We went there because my friend suggested it. Service was OK but the food was pretty average. One of those places that takes interesting sounding dishes from other restaurants and adds them to their menu without really understanding the flavors they are working with. Kinda like using a coloring book rather than a blank page for their art. Staff was friendly and attentive.

It was our first visit to the True Food at Lenox Square in Atlanta and it was a most enjoyable experience. Our server, Selam was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable of the menu and very attentive. The food was amazing. We had edamame dumplings, the charred cauliflower, the chopped salad and the chicken satay. We were hoping for a flatbread pizza but they weren’t ready yet (we were there for a before noon lunch) but Selam surprised us with a margherita pizza gratis!!! We will definitely return as this is a foodie haven!

Service was great! Food was good, not great. I had the terriyaki bowl. There were only about 3 broccoli crowns and not a lot of veggies. I asked for no wax beans and extra broccoli in the place of it and said I’d pay extra, but was disappointed. Also, I feel the food is more expensive than it should be. I do like coming here though! The edamame dumplings are great!

First of all, we come here often. Never have we waited as long as we did to get food. Jason the server was a kind person. 2 of us dining, we ordered a burger and pizza. Took an hour and 20 minutes to get our food. Unacceptable. Who has multiple hours for lunch, with the two easiest things to make? We didn’t see any sort of manager at all until after the hour mark. She didn’t introduce herself, so not sure if was actually management, but offered us free tea as consolation prize for waiting so long. I’ve been in the service industry for 25 years, that’s the worst way to solve a problem. I will think twice about return and I’d advise someone to train that manager in actual customer service. I found the offer disrespectful for compensation of the wait. Do better.

I love all the healthy GF and Vegan options! The wait staff is generally GREAT with just a few occasional exceptions. Kinda annoying to make reservation and be seated 15 minutes late- but it’s Atlanta... and it’s better than not taking reservations and having to wait am hour!

Not sure what's your policy for breast feeding, but for a restaurant it is not very appetizing. I don't have a problem when people do that in the public but when I smell diaper, that's not good.

If you’re looking for a good starter at True Food Kitchen I recommend getting the Summer Corn & Tomato flatbread. It’s thinly baked, got lots of veggies on top and served with a savory pesto sauce. I also enjoyed the flavorful turkey burger with the Peaches & Bourbon yummy cocktail to finish it off. You’ll be pleased, full & proud that you ate something healthy and tasty!

It took awhile for someone to take my beverage order, but when the server arrived I gave beverage & entree order. I had questions and the server was very knowledgeable & helpful. My server was also attentive but not intrusive. My entree arrived rather quickly and was absolute perfection! It was quiet in the restaurant when I arrived (it was 11:15 on a weekday) but by 11:45 the noise in the restaurant was more of a moderate level as many patrons had been seated and sound bounces inside the restaurant. But it was still a very pleasant dining experience. I love True Food! And came solo that day just because I wanted to eat there.
