Dinner with a friend following an event at the High Museum.

Good wine.

Good food.

Slow service.

Gnats everywhere which made the evening distracting and unpleasant. Reported it after fishing gnats out of our wine and water.

I have not been to True Food in awhile. Came with friends for a celebratory lunch. My vegan burger was served with cold sweet potato hash. For a $16 burger I expect at least warm hash. Server never came back to check on how our food was so the restaurant missed an opportunity to make my experience better. Which put a damper on the whole experience.

The overall experience was great. The food was good and the ambiance was a chill vibe. It wasn’t that busy. We got the flatbread, kale salad, Brussels, Korean bowl, street corn and cauliflower. I wouldn’t recommend the cauliflower or street corn but the rest was really good and the healthy type of food we wanted. The service was good. A little slow with drink delivery etc but he was nice and pleasant.

The food was just awful today. I felt bad for the server, but I would recommend staying away from breakfast food and order lunch/dinner meals. My eggs were supposed to be sunny side up. One had was just yoke that was over cooked, the other egg was so funny it still had the white runny part around it. The service was really great, which sucks for rhen he said of how bad the kitchen was

The waitress did not know what she was doing. She got the order wrong twice. What looked like a manager came over with the 3rd attempt of the order which was correct. I was very disappointed that they didn't give me any sort of credit for my food as I was eating after my friend had already finished.

Despite asking my server two times for more water I was never brought any. The tables on either side of me were brought full carafes of water after I asked for mine. I’m not sure what happen with service this particular time. I had my entire meal, and dessert with no water. True Food has always a place that we love, and visit for all of our celebrations. It was a tad disappointing.

The ambiance was great, lighting/noise level was perfect so I could see and converse with my friend. Our server was nice and provided good recommendations. Our only issue was timeliness; he forgot to put our starter in and when we finally received it, the Brussel sprouts were lukewarm. Our entrees then came out a bit late (we saw people who sat after us receiving theirs first) but at least it was hot! We both enjoyed our craft cocktails.

I was torn to try the sea bass - so many good reviews but I’m v picky about fish. It did not disappoint!! I had a super happy plate, clean as a whistle when I was done. Cooked nicely and not “fishy” to me at all. I was also worried the riced cauliflower would be unpleasant but forgot to substitute something else - and it was so delish after all. Will absolutely return in general and to order the sea bass again. My friend got the tuna salad cups and was very pleased as well.

I was hoping this would be great. For me it was just ok. Our server was great and all the people who greeted us were nice. The prob for me was that (and this could just be my thing) I was served a pretty decent veggie burger but it came with a cold bun. Like refrigerator cold. Also there are no whole grain bread offerings. No whole grain pizza crust or buns. They did however have a flax seed bun. I also thought the kale salad and spinach mushroom pizza were too garlic forward.

Overall not worth it. The charred cauliflower was subpar. Had a strange seasoning on it that left a unpleasant aftertaste. The vegan burger was good but my companion's spinach and mushroom pizza was lacking flavor. Additionally, the waiter didn't seem thrilled to be there.
