The food as always was excellent. The food was healthy, creatively put together, and tasted great. I do, however, note that for this visit, the timeliness of the service was frustrating. We didn't get our table until twenty minutes after the time of reservation and about fifty (50) minutes elapsed between our food order and delivery of our food. True Food should consider more staffing, particularly for Saturday nights.

It was a bad night at the restaurant. Something was wrong, food was slow and not good. We were there for 2.5 hours and not in the good way. I did have to send my sea bass back. They did comp it so that was good.

Unfortunately, they don’t list all of the ingredients on the menu so I wound up with a dish that has chili in it—something I have reactions to. When I pointed out to the waitress that there was chili in my dish, she argued with me that it wasn’t in there, but later found out the dish was made with chili oil. After that she was accommodating to make the dish without it. Be aware if you have any food sensitivities.

I have always gotten the spaghetti squash casserole but I haven't been in years. The portion was TINY, it was cold, and they forgot to add sausage. How can a bunch of spaghetti squash with a little tomato sauce and cheese be a thing? Like maybe 1 cup worth of food. My friends' food looked great. Just don't order that.

This was my second time here, the food is outstanding especially since I'm gluten & dairy free - but it's just soooo loud, when it starts to fill up, you find yourself practically screaming to be heard, which just makes it louder. Also, I'm from Dayton OH where the cost of living is far more affordable so the pricing of everything in Denver results in sticker shock for me, even though I travel extensively. Regardless, I still recommend the place, you just have to be prepared for the noise levels.

My spouse ordered the Lasagna and it was cold. My fish tacos were excellent. Noise level in the restaurant was very high.

While a little bit pricey, the food is delicious and the service great. The only thing they did wrong is forget to bring our appetizer out before our food. This is the second time in a row this has happened to me at this particular location.

While I felt that the food was subpar, and certainly over-prices for what it was, the restaurant design and service were good.

I like True Food and we had a decent meal. I just thought it wasn’t as good as in the past. I used to love their sweet potato hash but the new way they are doing it is not nearly as good. Also the Brussels sprout app was marginal.

We eat here with some frequency and always find it to be good. Lots of great options for vegetarians and vegans as well as the meat lovers in our group. Menu changes with the seasons which we like.

Their new Fall menu was on display with several entirely new items. I tried the Mediterranean Chicken which was outstanding and my friend had the Cauliflower Polenta which she stated was equally amazing. Our server, Courtney, was and is both extremely knowledgeable and attentive to all her assigned patrons. Extremely pleasant young lady!!.

Had an excellent brunch— very cool spot with great menu and open, sunny ambiance. Food is prepped right out in the open so you can see the care that goes into the fresh ingredients and it shows in the food. Highly recommended

great food, good service but entirely too loud. It is clear that you are not welcome to talk over lunch, or stay for one second longer than necessary as the noise level is ridiculou! Even our server commented that she could not hear us when standing at a normal distance, so she had to lean way in - ugh. Not returning.
