Great craft cocktails. The flat bread with cilantro pesto was perfect to share. Service was friendly and efficient.

The food was somewhat bland, the waitress was not correct in describing nutrition or following my food allergies. It was very loud and we were over charged for an item we didn’t order

We had charred cauliflower and spinach pizza. Both were cooked and seasoned well. I am generally a protein guy but I really enjoyed this. The service was excellent. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. I give this restaurant a high recommendation.

Terrible service, though a perfect place for Sunday brunch for 6 people including kids. The food was fine but the service was terrible. We seemed to be actively ignored by our waitress, whose inexperience and lack of training was glaring.
In fairness I have eaten a True Food a few times before this and the wait staff was on point.

They were really great about food allergies and tweaked an appetizer to leave out the gluten which was really great.

We were surprised that there were so much flavor in all the dishes. Anticipated a typical healthy not so flavorful but veggie packed dishes. Everything we ate was delish minus the grass-fed burger & spicy curry panang was mediocre. We loved the edamame dumplings, turkey burger, margarita pizza, & fish tacos. Definitely coming back !

Wonderfully tasty meals with unusual and healthy ingredients. Cannot wait until one of these opens in our hometown, because there are at least a dozen other menu items that we would like to try. I had the chopped salad and grilled salmon, my wife had the teriyaki quinoa bowl, and we shared an amazing flourless chocolate cake. And we would have liked to sample each dish at every table around us — everything looked that good, and, judging from the comments that we overheard, was equally delicious. You cannot go wrong with anything on this menu!

AMAZING!!! Stunning menu, huge open space, and an open kitchen. Being a restaurant owner, I have to say that this space is brilliant! The open kitchen truly invites the diner into the space and gives them a remarkable feeling of being at home. The staff are extremely friendly, welcoming and inviting. The servers are extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Keep up the amazing work!! This is a gem that will be in Austin for many years to come!!

The waiter kept spitting while he was talking to us and as soon as he came he started blabbering what would you like to order chicken this fish that till 2 mins later we said we were vegans. He would just not stop talking every time we wanted to order something. The ambience was very noisy and the spitting thing grossssss!!!

I chose this restaurant based on it coming up in a search for healthy offerings, which would supposedly allow my date, an organic and non-gluten/gmo/wheat/sugar, and other things person to find something she liked. Unfortunately, she decided there were only a couple things on the entire menu she might eat. Not the restaurant's fault. The salmon was great and the chicken appetizer was okay. The cauliflower app was bland and we sent the entire plate back after trying only one piece. The server was very nice, but didn't have a good knowledge of the offerings or the bar, nor did she notice we sent the entire plate of cauliflower back and ask why. The decor is nice, but it is loud and the seating and table arrangement makes any conversation very public.
