The only thing on the menu for gluten and garlic free was fish tacos. I had a starter minus the garlic and had to ask 3 times for some olive oil so.it.would not be dry. The service was pushy and impersonal. The environment was a vast hard space, so.quite loud.until.people emptied out.

Had an exceptionally fine waitperson. Our dishes were all unique, yet simple and oh so tasty. We were celebrating a birthday and were comped an enormous piece of pie which was shared and almost more than our party of three could eat. Great night in a lovely atmosphere.

True Food did not disappoint. The food was fresh and healthily prepared. We were a party of four and all enjoyed their meal immensely. Do not miss the Kale Guacamole!

I used OpenTable to make a reservation, but we weren't seated until an hour later. We were served complimentary drink and flatbread with beets and argula while waiting though.

Good wholesome real food. Best dinner I had in Austin. Service was good, would not necessarily recommend the wine selections though. Our waiter recommended a Cabernet over the Malbec, and the Cab was not good, I didn’t even finish the glass. Hope the other choices are better.

We made reservations thru open table but were running 1/2 hour late due to unexpected traffic. We called and explained our situation and they graciously held our table even though the restaurant was packed and had a wait list. The service was beyond expectations and the food was amazing.

Great time again at TF. I was personally happy as I am a big breakfast person and I was nervous about a big enough plate being available on the menu. Our server helped me find and modify an existing plate to meet my hunger needs. Sunrise bowl with chicken sausage and scrambled eggs hit the spot!

Not only is the food very tasty, but also very healthy. Being Gluten Free I really appreciate having so many options on the menu to choose from.
A favourite for me is the Penang curry with shrimp - delicious.

this has always been one of my favorite restaurants but my last two visits have seen a decline in the food preparation quality. sometimes the food is served cold, other times, a recipe has been changed and not for the better...hope it gets back to its original impeccable quality because it's an expensive meal not to be great.

We have enjoyed the food, professional waitstaff and friendly atmosphere at many True Food Kitchen locations. The Austin location is as enjoyable as the rest. Our server, Dakota, was delightful, helpful and fun. We will be back. And above all we highly recommend this restaurant.

All was good, except Coffee was delivered lukewarm at best initially and on refill. Pancakes were tasty, as was wife’s pizza. Waiter competent but not a fan of his black fingernail polish. Good place for Sunday brunch, notwithstanding these issues.

The food wasn’t that impressive. It lacked any noteworthy flavors. The restaurant os loud as a result of the open concept and the music was a little too loud. The service was okay since my friend and I were there to chat but it would have been considered slow under normal circumstances.

Went there for my birthday dinner the other night and our waiter was amazing, they have a seasonal menu that is just phenomenal, and it was in a super rad location. They had so many options for all different types of diets (gluten free, dairy free, vegan, etc) and even great food for "regular" people lol! overall, my visit went great!

So much yum! I'm currently on Whole 30 and was able to use their Paleo menu suggestions to order a delicious dinner. My hubs had the poke bowl which I'll need to come back for but my grass fed burger on lettuce wrap was delicious. As was the kale salad. So many yummy drink options as well! Our server was knowledgeable and helpful as well as timely. We will be back again soon!
