Great food and great service. Our server even offered us a tasting sample of the sweet potato hash when we inquired about it. It’s noisy, so don’t expect a quiet date night, but the food is excellent if you like seasonal menus. Save room for dessert!

I have eaten here a few times and thought the food was just okay. Not sure what the big deal is all about for this place but they pack them in. I decided to give it one more try a few days ago and will not eat here again. Over-priced food that is edible and nothing special. I had the curry soup that was okay, and the grilled cauliflower with a gloppy curry sauce on top. The cauliflower was mushy and made even worse with gloppy sauce on it. My friend had a salad and she said it was okay but that’s it. Yes, the menu has all the latest catchy and trendy items like kale and antioxidant stuff but the food is not really that great especially for the prices.

The hostesses were not very friendly upon entering. When I said we had a reservation they said we didn’t. When I said we made it through open table, she said the WiFi was down. No apology. We couldn’t find our waiter several times for more water. Food was good but some lacking in taste. Potatoes were undercooked. After dinner I got an email saying we never made our reservation. I mentioned this to hostess on the way out and she changed it. All in all good concept. Food was maybe off that night and service was not good.

Used to love True Foods but they are not as good as they used to be. The service this time was terrible! Our server took forever to even acknowledge us - never even brought water or checked back on us. Seemed totally put out at the fact we had a baby and asked for a highchair. Probably won't go back for awhile - can think of better places that are more accommodating for little ones!

I've been to True Food several times, but it was the first time for my date and she really enjoyed it. The restaurant itself is a nice environment, very organic feeling, but the highlight for me is the food. Inventive menu, healthy ingredients and excellently prepared. They have carafe options for many wines that pour about a glass and a half that I really like. I've always been seated timely to my reservation and received excellent service. Overall a consistently great experience for me.

I’ve had good experiences here before, but this one was terrible. We were seated and had our waters in about 15 minutes after our waitress served water to the table that sat down after us. The food lasagna overly salty and the burger I ordered had a fishy aftertaste.

Not only was the server hardly around, she forgot to order our final drink and we asked for the check so she gave up on getting us the final drink order after all.

Delicious food with great options for all different palates!! Menu options are based on an anti inflammatory diet, but don’t let it fool you! Everything was delicious and the handcrafted beverages seal the deal! Service was average overall!

Overpriced for what you get. Some menu items are over done w/ too many ingredients making it difficult for people w/ food sensitivities. I believe I just found their seasonal winter menu a better fit for me. I'll be back at some point!

The drinks, food, and service were outstanding. We all loved our entrees. The only thing that wasn’t outstanding was the noise level. It was really hard to hear my family right across the table. Would have been better to sit outside, but it was stormy when we arrived. I will definitely go back.

Noisy, noisy, NOISY!!!! We were probably in the “quietist” corner of the restaurant and we still had to raise voices to be heard. Food and service excellent but would not recommend for a quiet tete a tete.

I've had numerous very good meals at this restaurant, and think there service is generally quite good. Unfortunately, this wasn't the best visit in terms of food quality or service. The Moroccan Chicken my husband ordered was quite good, and as a standard for the restaurant, I'd expect that. My bolognese, however, was sub par due to excessive saltiness. I politely pointed it out to the waitress when she took my half eaten meal away and she simply shrugged it off. Not the normal response I'd expect in a restaurant of quality. My husband also ordered lentil soup to start - and it was exceedingly bland, while my roasted cauliflower was very good. The custom cocktails are generally good and the watermelon mojito was no exception - I'd certainly order that again. So all in all - hit or miss this time - too bad.
