Ordered a turkey burger on a GF bun. Very good. All the food I've eaten there is excellent.

Love the “seasonal” offerings…the Spicy Panang Curry with chicken was delicious! Also tried the seasonal cocktail called Common Bond…also delicious!

My friends and I loved the outdoor seating and ambience; plus the location was mid-way for us, which we appreciated. I was frankly disappointed in the roasted brussel sprouts, although I didn't say anything to my friends. I wasn't crazy about the flavor at all and the dish didn't seem fresh, the mushrooms were tasteless. I suggest you get the recipe from the Belmont Brewing Company in Long Beach for their brussel sprouts, with bacon and parmesan - scrumptious! I didn't ask my friends about their eggs over medium and chicken sausages, and they didn't say anything. The location, outside dining and excellent service made up for the brussel sprouts! I'll definitely recommend again, because of the location. Thank you.

The Panang curry flavor has changed and it was soupy, gross., the butternut risotto was bland.. go back to how you were before Covid

Staff was aware that we were celebrating two birthdays; however, there was no acknowledgment. Food was good but overall, experience was not worth the value.

We had vegan dishes, and the vegan pizza crust was quite soft, you had to eat it with a fork and knife. It tasted fine, but it’s tough to get a vegan pizza crust crispy enough to hold. The location is pretty vibrant and we sat outdoors next to the fountains. Certainly not quiet, but it’s not so loud that you can’t have a conversation.

Paul, Thank you for your feed back. Next time you are in I would love to make sure the pizza crust is crispy. Sorry we missed the mark on this visit. We are introducing a great vegan pizza to the fall menu. The Butternut Squash Pizza. I'd love if you'd come back to give it a try.

Hadn't been to True Foods since before coronavirus--were very happy to find they have a large section of tables outside in the central plaza of The Point, with the same wonderful food and service. We took someone who had never been before, and he definitely plans to go back!

The place is located in a courtyard with lots of other shops and restaurants. I love the interior and it’s quite spacious and nicely decorated. The service was great and the food is really good. I love the natural and healthy options. When in the area, I’d definitely return.

The manager was amazing. It was clear they were closing soon, and after hearing the kitchen was closing multiple times he came over and encouraged us to order anything we wanted. Then he brought my wife who is trying to induce labor, every dessert they had on the menu. It was amazing. I own a company and when I see management go above and beyond to perform for patrons it always makes me feel like I have to return. They don’t even sell French fries but I will be back to enjoy a hibiscus margarita soon.

Service was very efficient and friendly. Food was ok. Nothing that would motivate me to return. Lots and lots of young children made for a very casual setting.

Thanks for the review. Please feel free to grab a manager if you don't fully enjoy your dinner. We are here to listen and make anything better. We do invite all walks of life to our restaurant and The Point is a destination for families with that comes children in the area. On your next visit if you let us know before you are sat we can find you a table that is away from children and keep surrounding tables clear of children while you are enjoying dinner.

Oh No! I am so sorry to read about your visit. Please allow us to try again. The Salmon Entree is one of my favorite on the menu I'm sad to hear we missed the mark on a few different areas. I will make sure I share this information with our Chef Team to ensure they are making the right steps to make sure this dish comes out perfect. Thank you for sharing.

We had a Korean noodle dish and the spinach and mushroom pizza. Both were well crafted. The Korean noodle dish had a little zing though we couldn't find the ingredient that provided it.
We sat outside by the water which was lovely. However, nearby diners were loud, beyond the control of the restaurant.
The waiter was very attentive, though not to a bothersome stage.

We’ve been to True Food several times and it never disappoints. The one thing we ALWAYS get as an appetizer is the Edamame Dumplings”, they’re outstanding. The service is great and they have lots of outdoor seating. Highly recommended!

Food nice and fresh, healthy choices, nothing we had wowed me. Outside looked like a fun atmosphere so specify that on your reservation, inside felt a bit like a cafeteria atmosphere to behonest. For the price i would say overall value average at best

Always our most favorite place to dine while traveling, excellent drink menu with healthy food options to fuel us with energy! Love the edamame truffle dumplings as a starter, the Korean noodles with chicken, although a little spicy is always perfect with the chicken sausage pizza and a Chardonnay, our go tos!
