Always a fan particularly of the vegetarian and vegan options. The bowls with tofu are usually well done.

LeShaun was the best server that’s ever taken care of us at TrueFood. We didn’t have to ask her for refills on iced teas. She was on top of all our needs. Everything came out the way we liked with our special requests.

Seating WAY too close together for comfort. Outdoor area should skip a table in between. I would not go back during COVID times.

Hi Annie- Thank you for the feedback. We do abide by the 6ft spacing requirement put forth by the CDC. If ever you do not like the table you are seated at, we would be more than happy to find you a table that works! We hope to see you back in again soon!

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.

Beautiful day to sit outside and enjoy a Labor Day lunch. My wife LOVED the Cream Tomato soup, and I had the Watermelon Tomato salad for starters. She went with the Teriyaki Bowl and I had the steak tacos with a arugula salad. All delicious, served quickly and at the right temp. Cocktails of course...Causemo for her which she found perfect and I had the watermelon mojito (see a theme?) Not as sweet as I like it, a bit bitter, but refreshing.

Love the spaghetti squash. Not a lot of keto or low carb stuff on menu and would love to see more. A while back you also had an eggplant dish that was so delicious my family and I used to come in with our friends for that but it had disappeared from the menu at least two years ago please bring it back.

This was an abysmal luncheon. We had a party of three with reservations. There were open tables for inside but the hostess said no reservations are taken for outside. Why wasn't that said at the time I reserved? We waited for 45 minutes and finally when I saw 4 open tables on the patio and we weren't called I went in to ask and they said they were cleaning them. Not true. Finally got seated and ordered a seasonal vegetable salad (description had a list of vegetables) and when it came it was a bowl of arugula. That's it, that's all. I had to ask for some vegetables and they brought a handful of cherry tomatoes and asparagus. Pitiful, tasteless and I will NOT go back.

Portion sizes have continued to get smaller and smaller. It is tough to spend $50 on lunch for 2 and leave hungry. Making ends meet by cutting portion sizes will not accomplish that goal.

Sitting curbside with the lil utility vehicle up n down the side walk and street collecting trash beside two entrances (restaurant and street) only a couple feet away it was like dining on a transit bus. I love the food, but I would want assurance of my seating arrangements before I pay $$$ again.
