Everything was great, but the service was pretty slow. We waited a while before we even got waters and had our orders taken.

Very tasty! Not a lot of sides to choose from with entrees. Service was good, and not too loud outside. Looking forward to the one in Avalon opening.

My husband TLT bread was cold and they usually do not give it out that way. The server was kind enough to take & to remake it, they took long. No discount no nothing. Come on. please pay attention to details. I visit your restaurant 2 to 3 times a week.

Please talk to your chef.

Everything was a little... off. I had just ordered the same menu items at the True Food in Denver and the quality and taste of the food there was MUCH better. Matters aren’t helped by watching a pastry chef wipe sweat from his brow with a paper towel, set the towel next to his work station (to save for later?) and then proceed without washing his hands. Gross.

True Food is one of my favorite restaurants. I eat there in almost every city I visit, but this location is the worst. Our food never arrives at the same time, something is always missing and the whole place just feels a little grimy. So disappointing!

I couldn't love this place more. I've loved everything I've ever ordered (maybe not the beet burger, texture thing, but the slaw on it was amazing.) Since I discovered this restaraunt on a past business trip, there is not a trip I take to Atlanta that doesn't include at least 1 lunch or dinner here. The cocktails are fabulous too. Eating healthy never felt so good. And the attention they pay to food allergies is top notch. Tell them you have an allergy and your meal has to be cleared by the kitchen and the manager before you get it. Love, love love this place!!!!!

I didn’t care for the spice in the butternut squash soup. The soup was wonderful otherwise though. I ordered lasagna but didn’t care for it so my daughter switched with me. I loved the burger.

The service was awesome!

Our teenage family member has Celiac and dairy allergy. The staff was very accommodating and attentive to her needs and took every precaution to ensure her entrees were prepared and served safely. They took her allergies and dietary restriction and our concerns very seriously. We very much appreciate the staff for this. The food was fresh and delicious. Great menu options and all items are labeled for vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free which is helpful. Service was attentive. Great ambience, but very loud inside, so it was hard to have conversations. Overall great dining experience.

Service was horrible. We asked for drink with light ice and after she got us glasses full of ice which we rejected, she said that we will get smaller size of glasses if we go with light ice?! Also we waited more than 30 min for our food and restaurant was half full.

Free Food Kitchen always has an inventive, seasonal menu, with many choices to fit most palates. The flavors are always great, and there isn' an item on the menu that disappoints.

I have been here a few times in the past couple of months. The food is consistent. The service can be on and off from time to time. Nothing noteworthy or negative on the service, just mediocre. Love the freshness and concept of Tru Food!

Had a social business style lunch here and was very impressed with the service, ambiance and the amazing healthy choices on the menu that were surprisingly delicious and very satisfying. I particularly enjoyed the cucumber salad (amazing) and the chicken and avocado wrap (delicious).

Our waitress, Julie, was great. The gluten free cake was a little dry, but she kept insisting it was good. She's a hoot.
Enjoyed everything else.

Ordered the steak and fish tacos...if you order this, order as an appetizer you get two petite tacos that are super dry for $17 bucks.

Food was excellent however, I made a reservation for 2 people 2pm on a Monday because I knew I would be on my lunch break. At first they said there were no tables which I told them I was on my lunch break and had made a reservation to avoid a wait. They sat us down and took our order immediately and mentioned again I was on a time line of a 45 minute lunch break. We ordered a personal pizza and the quinoa burger. Table of 3 sat down next to us about 10 minutes later. Table next to us received their order well before us (3 dishes) I asked the server about our food time and again said I was on my lunch break and she assured me it would be out shortly. Table next to us finished eating, paid and left before we even received our food. We received our food after a 50 minutes from sit down which we had to scarf down and had to leave my friend cash due to now having to be back late to work from my lunch break and if I boxed it wouldn’t be able to eat it until I left my shift at 8pm. I would consider returning for the food but would only do so if I had ample time to account for the unreasonable wait time that is either common there or was fault of the server not putting in the order in a timely manner. I’ve worked in service and 45 minutes is more than enough time for customers to be in and out during lunch hour.
