    The food is good but quite over priced for what it is. This is to me a very casual place, chain like restaurant, and certain items do not meet taste and quality to justify price point.

Where our approach is to provide an upscale fast casual environment, we are also committed to carefully sourcing quality wholesome ingredients and providing great hospitality.

    Had a reservation for a table. We ended up outside in the sun. Was hot plus people with barking dogs in the area. My food was good but the ambience was poor...

    True Food Kitchen - NewportResponded 3 days agoThank you for your review Jeff. I’m happy to know you enjoyed the food. We’re always more than happy to assist in situating you at a table that’s more to your liking. We have a wonderful open indoor dining room that will hopefully accommodate your needs.

    I was disappointed in the service - 1 of our appetizers didn't come until the entrees, so that was a waste. My Sea bass was rather lukewarm, but they were so busy and non-existent that i just went ahead and ate it.

    True Food Kitchen - NewportResponded 3 days agoRandy, we’re so thankful for your constructive criticism as it will influence how we strive to deliver truly remarkable service next time and I sincerely apologize to hear about your less than perfect experience. We’d love to invite you back in and feel free to ask for any one of our managers. We’d be more than happy to show you the level of service we’re capable of.

    It doesn’t bother me but it might to some people that our waiters used the F word a few times. They gave me my dessert and the spoon already bad chocolate on it. I ordered the vegan strawberry cheesecake and it was the nastiest thing I’ve ever put in my mouth. Do not order that!! Otherwise it was good.

    True Food Kitchen - NewportResponded on June 17, 2022Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate the information of the team's verbiage and will address immediately. Unfortunately we saddened to hear you didn't enjoy the dessert.

    We love the tuna tataki but $16.50 for two crackers and a couple of tablespoons of tuna is really not a good value. The turkey burger was delicious and I love it when the sweet potatoes are soft and cooked all the way. We enjoy True Foods but some of their menu options are over priced.

    I was excited to try True Food Kitchen after reading all the reviews, but left disappointed. The food was good, not great. The service was poor. We waited for an extended period of time for our food without any communication. It appeared in the pursuit of trying to be creative with the entrees, a weird composition of ingredients was used and missed the target.

    I love True Foods because they have a menu that is very flexible and accommodating to those with dietary restrictions and/or various dietary needs. I was able to swap pita chips for veggies to enjoy the Edamame Guac and to make it more gluten friendly. They also swapped the ancient grains for more veggies in the “Ancient Grains Bowl”. It was a great experience at the Newport location and the service team was welcoming and friendly. Looking forward to our next date night at True Foods!

    We had the pokebowl and chicken parmesan. My ingredients were fresh but somewhat on the skimpy side. Could have used a little more flavor, like miso on the ahi. The chicken parm looked saucy and cheesy but was served a little lukewarm. The broccolini side was skimpy.

    The coffee was excellent and the mint tea was high quality. Air conditioning was very cold and staff said they couldn’t adjust it. They moved our table twice to get a warmer spot and ended up moving us outside with two heaters on us. It was a very uncomfortable experience. We requested Stevia and was given Truvia which we were told was stevia - although after reading the label, it has stevia in it with ethrythitol as it’s main ingredient. We had to stand up and walk away from the table to the line of sight of staff so that we could get their attention on more than one occasion. We requested the dessert be put onto two plates divided and the request was not fulfilled.

    True Food Kitchen - NewportResponded on June 2, 2022Thank you for the feedback. It however saddens us that we were not able to find the best location to make you comfortable and give you the dessert that you were rightfully expecting. We’d love the opportunity to try again if you’d like to reach out to the location.

    Food was good but 21$ for a cocktail ? Service was promising at first , but went down hill . Appetizers delivered not plates . Entrees delivered , not silver ware . How hard is it to train people to do the job right ? Makes me not want to go back . But there were many positives about the meal to try again .
