    Had a reservation. We told the girls at host stand. They asked us to wait on the side. They then sat multiple walk ins ahead of us and I went back 25 minutes after our reservation and they asked what the name was. I said I’m the one at the top and they looked confused and finally sat me. Portions small for price you pay. Specials weren’t that good.

    This is a rating for my most recent trip to True Food Kitchen at Seaholm. Usually, I have a great experience, but this time it was very mediocre. The appetizer was room temperature when it was supposed to be hot. The service was poor. Dirty empty plates piled up on our table and weren’t removed. We ate outside, and the ambience was disorganized and messy — tables not tidied in a timely manner, debris on the ground, etc. Hopefully this was just an off night.

    We always find the food and ambience good, but in this visit, the food came out very slow.

    True Food Kitchen - AustinResponded on January 7, 2023Thank you for letting us know about your visit. I'm so sorry the food took a bit to come out, that is not how it should be and is unacceptable. I will follow up with the chef to make sure they are keeping a closer eye on the ticket times so this does not continue to happen. Thank you again for your feedback.

    Our server Meagan was amazing—attentive, friendly, and accommodating. I would have rated the food higher, but the restaurant was out of tuna, and several of us wanted dishes with it. The sweet potato hash tasted leftover. We had a large family gathering, and the restaurant did well providing for our group of 10.

    The food was fully of flavor. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful. We did have a snafu with my order, ordered GF and got non GF food. Thankfully I recognized it and asked for a corrected meal but it took a hot minute for it to get out and by the time it got it, my kiddo was done eating and had to wait for me. The server did keep checking with the kitchen and brought it right out when it was up. He was very kind. Overall I may go back if I’m in the area. If I do, it’ll be for the flourless cake. That was divine!

    True Food Kitchen - AustinResponded on December 18, 2022We're terribly sorry about the mix-up of the GF items! I hope a manager came by to speak with you about this. Next time you're in please ask for me. - Paul Coffee GM

    Solid food and atmosphere, but this is the second time lately where the service is bad. A few examples from last night: -Gave us a hard time for wanting to sit outside even though it was mostly empty -messed up the order for both my cocktail and my son’s dinner -forgot the take off the messed up cocktail from my bill We’ll go back for the food, but be prepared for sub-par service.
