TFK is always a great place to go when you’re wanting to eat a “healthy” meal and eat guaranteed fresh food. It was a busy, rainy day and we had reservations. We were seated quickly. The service was so-so. I think the server was doing her best, but definitely overwhelmed. We had to ask for things we requested multiple times prior to receiving them. Other than that, it was a good experience and the food was good. Since I order the same thing essentially every time, I find the quality is consistent.

True food kitchen is a cool restaurant but for what they served, no. The service was great! But the food nah I would not recommend. For someone starting out in vegetarian foods this is not where to start. They need more seasoning and warmer meals. I do not recommend this restaurant.

This is my favorite lunch spot. Fantastic food, great quality ingredients that are healthy and flavorful. Love the idea of having many veg/vegan options. My husband, who was skeptical about the whole vegan lifestyle idea, is completely on board after realizing that you can still enjoy your food without sacrificing flavor! Love True Food!

I love True Food Kitchen. I am so thankful that they incorporate fresh, seasonal items into their menu. They also have LOTS of vegan choices, which is a huge selling point for me. The food is fresh, fast, and delicious. The waitstaff also works as a team to ensure your needs are met. You won't be disappointed.

My food was great and the patio was a good place to talk. My client did have a hair on her lime wedge of her drink. Unimpressed about how that was handled

The experience at True Food is always superb. I love how they have so many options that appeal to a variety of palettes and there are many vegan cuisines that appeal to both vegans and non-vegans alike. The charred cauliflower starter has wonderful flavor and my friend absolutely loved it so I’m certain we will return soon to try more menu options.

Big fan of True Food Kitchen. I was able to test out one of the new items on the winter menu. I appreciate the attention to detail on the nutrition and taste. I have never experienced a meal that I did not like there. BTW, Tulsi tea there is amazing!

I was very disappointed in True Food this last visit. I hadn't eaten there in about 8 months but all other times LOVED it. I have the Ancient Grains Bowl every time because I like it so much. This time the quinoa was hard and somewhat burned. The veggies were over cooked. Won't be going back

True Food Kitchen suffers from inconsistency. When they are good, they are very good. When they are bad, it is awful. This visit was a bad night. We had a reservation and got seated promptly. Our server was very nice, but, like us, he was victimized by a slow kitchen. The food came out cold and too salty. The avocado in the salad was brown - not fresh. The manager was very gracious, and removed charges for all the entrees.
The ambiance is dominated by noise. On another occasion we actually had a good dinner. However, one before that was like this bad experience. The staff is always nice, but it will be hard for us to ever return under the condition of never knowing what we'll get on a given night.

Group of church friends getting together for brunch. Out of 5 ppl only 2 of us ate all of our food (self included) and the other 3 either didn’t care for their meal or took it home. It is a very nice establishment and our waitress was amazing!

I love having this really healthy and innovative place to eat. Loved the cauliflower appetizer and fish tacos. The healthy drink offerings are fun to sample, colorful and delicious. The atmosphere is fun but the noise level is way over the top. Also, if you have made a reservation - give yourself some extra time to find a parking spot. Lenox Mall is a very busy place.

Called for wait time. 15 mins. Called again to make sure 25 mins. Arrived 25 mins wait. An hour and 5 minutes later no table. We left. We eat here often and the front of house tonight were inexperienced and unprepared for the task. Not appreciated with our 3 year old!

True Food Kitchen has creative, delicious dishes that are especially great for sharing -- because you want to try lots of things when you see the menu. It's mostly vegetarian and still has some fish and meat dishes for those who want that. Has a good wine list too. The ambiance is lively (fairly loud but if you get a table near the side of the room, it's easier to talk) and festive feeling. Service was excellent!

Service was very good. Food was just OK. Mediterranean chicken was OK-as long as you love cucumbers. My daughter had the Panang Curry, which was much better than the chicken.... we had the Kake Guacamole as an appetizer and it was delicious...gluten free pitas were excellent.

Got there at 6:45pm. Hostess wouldn’t seat my party of 2 immediately. Said there was a 45min wait. I was able to book a reservation on open table for 7pm. And was seated promptly at 7pm....Weird! Overall thought the service was ok.
