Service was very bad. Waiter took a long time to greet us and had a bad attitude. He told me my burger came with cheese and it didn’t. Made a mistake in our appetizer order and he never came around to check on us throughout our meal. Very bad service all the way around. And restaurant only has four beers to choose from.

Service was good. Food had good flavor but could have been better; for example avocado in dish was not ripe and rather hard. Sweet potatoes were over cooked and dry.

Our experience was just OK. The host was good. Efficient and friendly. Our waitress seemed to really want us to use the app instead of relying on her for ordering etc. Had to ask for everything. She did not check on us at all.
The food was OK. Loved the crust on the pizza and the butternut squash soup was good.

We love the True Food menu although it is a bit pricey. The service was professional, prompt and attentive. The manager stopped by to check in on us and corralled our drink order. The dining room is usually quite noisy, I wish it was a bit more cozy and less like a cafeteria.

It was a little cold due the draft from the door - most diners kept coats on.
However, our overall experience was wonderful.

The hostess worked hard to find us a warmer table indoors.

Also, our waitress, Marianna (spell?) was fabulous. She was professional, friendly, polite, and attentive.

Of course the food is great - we love the healthy approach to the menu. We will keep returning.
Thank you

True Food has definitely suffered since COVID. The food was cold and the tortillas with my shrimp tacos were overheated. Huge disappointment as it was Restaurant Week and we chose a non-participating restaurant instead of a great value and meal. Not special anymore. Would not currently recommend.

I had the Winter immuninty bowl. I found it visually appealing, packed with fresh plant based ingredients and tasty. Tthe spice combination was new to me and I was impressed with it. I gave the meal 4 stars overall because the serving size was a bit small.

Our waiter was attentive, responsive and our food was delivered very quickly. We we're able to linger and have conversation without feeling pressured to vacate. I tried the sqaush pie for the first time and enjoyed it immensely. It was large enough that I split it with my companion and didn't fell at all cheated on my portion. A nice finishing touch!
