    Delicious gluten free and vegan options. I’m addicted to the vegan double cheeseburger — best in OC, IMO. The brussels appetizer is a must have. Also their pizzas are xlnt. I love that they have a full bar and great wine list by the glass. A family favorite, we come here (or do delivery) 1-2x a week.

    We asked if we could be seated in a more comfortable location and were told no and placed by the door that everyone opened and closed. The server rarely came to the table and we finally had to go find the server to get our bill to pay it. The happy hour drinks tasted like mixed lemonade.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Valentine's dinner outing!! True Food Kitchen accommodated us by allowing our dog to be with us on the patio. My wife had a great salad with shrimp and commented that the dressing was light and refreshing. I had the turkey burger and a cup of the butternut squash soup.... both were excellent! For dessert, I had a flourless chocolate cake with grass-fed vanilla ice cream, and my wife had a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream. Both were enjoyable. Service was excellent!

    Overall rating was negatively affected by the noise level. Hard surfaces everywhere with nothing to soften the din. Adding insult was the ridiculously loud carrot chopping at a work table outside the main part of the kitchen and in the restaurant. The sous chef? seemed to enjoy the nasty looks he was getting from all around. The best part of my meal was the hazelnut mocha. My crustless quiche was over baked and dry. The egg and vegetable scramble was also dry and overladen with brussels sprouts. The double vegetable cheeseburger was tasty as well as our salads.

    Nice apostrophe and friendly staff - it took a while for us to get our martini’s and when they came they were less than impressive. Not very cold and no small ice chips floating on the top. Looked like they just poured some vodka in a glass and sent it over. Our waitress was fairly busy and did her best to keep things moving. I kept noticing a man walking around with a iPad looking at tables? He would have done much better helping to get food and drinks to his customers. Don’t worry about our table next time as this was a one timer….

    Service was good. Unfortunately the food is not great. I always ordered the tuna poke bowl and it’s used to be great. But it was very disappointing last night. The black rice was under cooked and hard to be chewed. Portion of the tuna, mushroom and edamame was so small! I felt like the dish was a left over and thus portion was so small. In all, very disappointing.

    We love every single thing about your restaurant. It’s so dog friendly, and we always bring our dog. He’s treated so well by the weight staff, and just loves to go, sit under the table, and watch the world go by. The only problem we had was we didn’t have a heat lamp until halfway through dinner, because one wasn’t working. But that happens, and we don’t mind. We’re actually going back tonight.

    I was the guest of a friend celebrating my birthday so I didn’t get our server’s name but he was so great and accommodating. My friend had one of the bowls with chicken and I had the chicken and mozzarella panini. They were both delicious and flavorful. They were very good portions for the price. We will dine here again soon.

    Terrible decision to become cheap and cut corners. Everything was smaller in portions, uglier in presentation, worse in quality and taste, lower at meeting minimum standards for flavors, but higher in costs. Cheapness was agonizingly present. Something has drastically changed for the worse. For example, margarita pizza was 2/3rd of the original size at higher price, why?? Burritos bowl lacked a well balanced texture of all ingredients because it was packed with cheap quinoa and brown rice! Disappointing experience because we always liked this restaurant for its versatile menu items and reasonable prices besides portions that were decent. Not sure if we will go back. We all know making profit is very important but not everything is about profit specially in restaurant business.
