The second time for our group lunch here, and the consensus appears to be that the food is very good and towards the healthy side. I had a turkey burger which was very tasty. The Lasagna also received favorable reviews. The only downside is that the inside dining room is quite noisy when full of people.

Delicious food, great service, not too crowded or noisy. We had a party of five and were easily accommodated. We would definitely recommend.

Even though half our reservation was late and the dining room was empty there wasn't wait staff to take care of us. Also, unfortunately, not one person (of 11) found their meal to be above average. Not the hambergers, not the pizza, no one. I also notice that no one finished their lemonade.

This is really sad as it was a family reunion event and I had recommended True Food because I had always had a great experience. Not so this time.

Ordered the poke bowl and was very disappointed.
Not so much a poke bowl… the poke itself was over spiced.

I kind of felt cheated paying for an oz of poke and 6 oz of quinoa and veggies.

Friendly waiter, food quality was good, improved since last visit. New items in the winter menu. Good, friendly atmosphere in the restaurant. Reservation was quickly found. Dessert took some time, one dessert removed from the bill.

Great food, well-priced and service is great! Evening parking can be difficult so give yourself plenty of time to park and walk. Love both indoor and outdoor seating options.

Oddly the guacamole and GF bread was bland and bread was stale. The curry was also bland. This was uncharacteristic of this restaurant.

Food was not up to par for Poke Bowl. Tasty but diversity of food and mostly just rice, not flavorful enough for sauce either.

I look forward to trying more of the menu items. The Seasonal butternut squash pizza is one of my absolute favorites. The starter Brussels sprouts are delicious with mushrooms and a yummy miso sauce. The seating was comfortable and even though it is a large, open room, it was quiet enough to easily hold conversations with everyone at our table.

Empty restaurant on a Friday evening should have been the first sign . Entree came out ice cold. Pizza was soggy and limp. Veggie burger just ok. Drinks not cheap. Water glasses remained unfilled despite lots of employees standing around with nothing to do.

It was my first time to eat there. The server was very nice, friendly, and was able to make good recommendations. I really liked their seasonal passion fruit limonade. I usually don’t order a lemonade because it’s too sweat for me. But, theirs was not sweet at all! I loved it!

Lunchtime seems to be too busy right at noon. Very loud and it took almost 45 minutes to get our food. Seems like they are still working out kinks of being fully open again. Not the best experience ever but food was delicious when it came!

I have been there so many times but this time I had the worst service. After being seated no one checked in our table for 20 mins. I had to flag down a server end ask for water and who would be helping us. Then we ordered the spaghetti casserole and teriyaki bowl. When she brought out the teriyaki bowl she said they were sold out of casserole. Odd she didn’t explain that to us sooner. At end of meal she hadn’t come by once to check on us and I had to get up and find a server to help us checkout. Worst experience there and consider myself a regular. Tonight was disappointing.

The host welcomed us and was kind enough to make sure we had a great table to enjoy our meal!
This was our first time here and our server explained to us about the farm to table policy of the restaurant which I think is commendable.
The food and drinks were visually appealing and tasted great!
Overall We had a wonderful evening! 😊

Good place to catch up with friends. Food was increíble - we ordered off the SEASONAL MENU. Butternut pizza DELICIOUS !! Passion lemonade - delicious and so refreshing - just wish there wasn’t so much ice. Seems like you only get 4oz of it- had to order a 2nd glass.
Had hummus with their delicious pita, their seasonal salad need I say more.
Only missed the friendly service.

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.
