It was a last minute decision for dinner. Also preferred outside but was raining. Indoors not so bad. Appropriately social distanced. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. She was very helpful and had an interesting personality which added to the dining experience in a positive way. The food was delicious. The butternut squash soup was tasty - a slight sweetness to it but good. Tried a new starter dish called the “Jackfruit Lettuce Wraps” - it sounded old, however I was pleasantly surprised. It tasted so fresh and flavorful. My go to food is the spaghetti squash, which I add jalapeños, was delicious as well. Lastly had the flourless chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream. A bit too sweet for me but if you have a sweet tooth you will definitely enjoy it! The ice cream on top helps to tone down the sweetness. Overall a great and fresh meal on a rainy day made it an awesome night!

I always enjoy True Foods. I ordered the seasonal salad topped with grilled chicken, which was excellent. The restaurant has added many no contact features since Covid-19. But it seemed that the no contact protocols minimized how often a server checked on us. We wanted to order cappucino at the end of the meal and we were hard pressed to find any staff to order from. It took us about 5 minutes to flag someone down. It seemed that waitstaff was not looking around to make eye contact with customers as they would have pre-pandemic. All-in-all it was a nice experience but I would recommend that management check on tables if waitstaff cannot.

I think the quality of the food has declined, the portions smaller, the taste less tasty. I hope my most recent experience is not indicative of things in general.

Unfortunately, even with a reservation, they were unable to sit us outside, as we had requested. That being said, the inside was very open and wide, and the social distancing in between tables was good. The food was wonderful, vegan-friendly, and our waitress was kind, quick, and hilarious. We got the prickly pear mimosa and I can honestly say it's in my top 5 favorite cocktails ever!

I didn’t know if you make the reservation on line you can’t reserve outside which was fine but I wish they would call or text and let you know if you specifically write it when you reserve it. The butternut squash pizza had more flavor before and mostly carmalized onions. I think it used to have either walnuts or balsamic glaze. The seasonal salad was good. The Tuscan kale one lacked flavor and any zest. The wine was good. The server was very nice.

I hadn't eaten here in awhile and the food was amazing. Our server was an absolute wonder. Being Gluten free, I was amazed that 95% could be adapted or was already gluten free.

We sat outside and was at least 6 feet from others. Everyone who worked their wore a mask. There was plants and a nice ambience. I thought the street traffic would be too much, but I didn't notice it.

Only thing is they have no happy hour specials like the other True Foods locations

True Food Kitchen has been our Go-To destination for special occasions. This visit lacked the great customer experience we have become accustomed to. Perhaps COVID had some impact, but the entire experience seemed very transactional. We were given a stubby pencil, a form with a checkbox next to each of the limited menu items, and a virtual, QR code-linked menu with instructions to checkoff the things we wanted to eat and drink. The food was good but, overall, the night it was slightly disappointing.

Came here around 4:30 for mom's birthday and we sat indoors because it was less crowded compared to their outdoor seating. Their tables had markers displayed showing if they had been sanitized or not. Overall, the restaurant was clean and I didn't feel too nervous eating indoors especially during this covid season. Food was great, my family enjoyed everything we ordered: teriyaki quinoa bowl, ancient grains bowl, salmon, grass fed burger, hummus, and wraps. It all came out in a timely manner, too. Our server was very attentive and thoughtful as well.

I love everything about the place except the two loud music. It’s a real challenge when you’re older . And muffled his speech is an issue today with mask wearing. But I think since this is an establishment who cares about what you put in your body they should also care about your hearing and there is no reason for this restaurant or any other restaurant for that matter to crank up decibels.
