Excellent social distancing, excellent food, and excellent service! Been hesitant about dining out however True Foods Kitchen alleviated all fears.
Table service was great, cut back/limited menu was disappointing considering some of what was not available are staples of True Foods and have been on the menu since the first one opened in Phoenix at the Biltmore. Hostess was not friendly, very short and snippy with her words, did not make me feel welcome or valued.
Honestly super great atmosphere and customer service. Food is all great quality so very much worth the price
Thank you for the great review, Dominique!
The food is always super yummy and fresh! Everything on the menu is finger licking good!
We agree! Thanks for the awesome review!
This place is awesome, my aunt has so many food restrictions and they accommodate every single one of them every time we go, food is awesome, LOVE this place
We're so glad to hear we can help your aunt eat a meal that meets her needs and tastes good! Thank you for taking the time to review us. Hope to see you both in here again soon!
The our server was very helpful and accommodating. The food came right away and was so good. I got the roasted squash pizza. The others got the grass fed burger and margarita pizza. They said they were really good. The roasted Brussels sprouts were amazing. Also enjoyed the chopped salad. Would definitely go back
Thank you for the review, Lori! We are so glad you & your friends had a great experience. If you're looking for additional menu items to try, may I recommend the Edamame Dumplings? They are my favorite starter on the menu! Hoping you visit us again soon.
Healthful snd tasty food! Options for various diets and allergies.
Thank you for the 5 star review!
Great service, food & atmosphere. One of our faves!
Thank you so much!
Lovely quiet private seating. Wonderful food as usual!
Thank you so much for your kind review!
Too busy, not enough social distancing at the hostess station. Black Birds on the patio and on top of tables eating leftovers. Salad was boring. Capacity was pretty full outside. Pasadena location does it right. Also, I flagged the reservation that it was for a birthday but the waitress never said anything. Sorry, Newport Beach, the experience was disappointing.
Thank you for reaching out about your recent experience. We take social distancing protocol very seriously and have made it an absolute priority to ensure we are following these standards at all times. While I'm not sure what you witnessed, I can tell you we will be revisiting all social distancing protocol with our team members immediately. I also sincerely apologize for the missed opportunity with your celebration. Can you please e-mail me directly at Nancy.Geden@TrueFoodKitchen.comm?
This is a nice place to eat with somewhat healthy choices but it is severely overpriced for what you get.
Hi Laurie. Thank you for reaching out. We definitely don't want to be considered overpriced, though we are at a higher price point given the high quality of ingredients we source and prepare fresh daily. That said, we always want you to see value in what you are getting. Can we talk more about what you ordered with us? Please e-mail me directly at Nancy.Geden@TrueFoodKitchen.comm. Thank you.
A phenomenal place to go to have delicious yet healthier menu options! A great experience.
Thank you for the kind review!
I ordered the seasonal salad with salmon. Candidly, it was just awful. A soggy mess with undefinable ingredients. Salmon was totally tasteless and the salad was among the worst I've ever had. If I hadn't been there on a business lunch with someone else picking up the check, I would have sent it back. Instead, I ate what I could but mostly left the slop that was in the bowl. Not sure if I just hit them on a bad day or what, since I've never had that kind of experience here before. They really need to tighten things up. Pitiful.
Oh no, Kathy!! We obviously missed the mark on your dining experience and really appreciate you bringing it to our attention. This salad is my favorite, so I'm very sad you had such a poor experience with it. I've relayed this information to our Chef Team, and we are immediately working on correcting the issues. Can you please send me an e-mail at Nancy.Geden@TrueFoodKitchen.comm so that I may invite you back for another salad on us? Thank you.
Delicious healthy and fast
What a great combo to describe us! Thanks for the review, Dorothy!
Great food! Lower calorie but still delicious!
Thank you for the great review!
My first time eating at a True Food Kitchen. The Newport location is awesome. Food was Excellent, Server was Exceptional, Place was Clean and Dog Friendly. Will definitely return.
We appreciate the awesome review, Janet! Glad you & your fury friend had an enjoyable first experience. Hope you choose to dine with us again soon!
Best restaurant, best atmosphere, Best service and amazing food!!
We love the enthusiasm, Sudas! Thanks so much for your patronage! Hope to see you again soon.
Enjoyed the food and environment! It's awesome that inside dinning is now available
Thanks for the 5 star review, Valerie!
Naomi’s service was impeccable !!! She directed us to 2 fabulous wines to compliment our meals. Presentation was picture-perfect. Our palate was dazzled by the exquisite ingredients and seasoning .. then Naomi graciously recommended the squash pie:0 oh my ... I was done .
Thank you for the 5 star review! We will make sure Naomi gets recognized for her awesome service. Squash Pie season is surely my favorite time of the year, and I'm glad we could get you on board, too! Til next time.
So grateful True Foods is open! Excellent overall!
Thank you, Helene! We're grateful you could join us!
The food is fantastic and well priced. Atmosphere is great-- feels like a real restaurant, even during a pandemic. Server was attentive. Health precautions were in place. A great time was had by all!
Nibor, your review is music to our ears. Thank you very much for choosing to dine with us and providing us with a 5-star review. Hoping you join us again soon!
Good and service was outstanding. Despite Covid rules everything was perfect and safe!
We're so glad to hear we made you feel safe & taken care of in your dining experience! Thank you for the review!
Great service and food. Who would’ve thought jack fruit could be repurposed to taste like carnitas. Definitely a winner.
Dinorah - yes! Who would've thought! I love the appetizer as well and even add it to my Ancient Grains bowl as a protein option. Thank you for your review. Hope you visit again soon.
We have been going to True Food in Newport since it opened and we have never been disappointed. Excellent seasonal food choices and outstanding service.
Thank you for the great review, Suska! We appreciate your long-time patronage and look forward to serving you again soon! Please do say hi next time. - Nancy
I strongly feet the most important comment defining our luncheon at True Food Kitchen is exceptional. We dined on the expansive patio. The restaurant ensures a healthy safe distancing with tables spread throughout the patio area. The menus (disposable paper) are easy to read. Our server made us feel welcome. Dining at True Food Kitchen is an outstanding opportunity to meet friends for lunch or dinner and dine out-of-doors.
What a lovely review, Carole! Thank you so kindly for taking the time to write it. We are so glad to be able to provide you with an outstanding experience and look forward to you returning with us soon!
Wonderful food and service as usual. Love this mostly vegan restaurant.
Thank you for the awesome review, Steve!
Food is very good, drinks are a waste, very little alcohol. We paid a lot for sugar water.
Linda, thank you for sharing your feedback. All of our cocktails are carefully crafted, measuring each spirit to 1.5-2 ounces, depending on the drink. I will admit, it is our intention to provide you a delicious drink that is so balanced with fresh squeezed juices & minimal "added" sugar, that one may find it hard to taste the presence of alcohol alone. Please also know we can always fix it for you in the moment, should you like to try something else. Thank you again.
Amazing food and wonderfully helpful and engaging waitress, Lauren! Thank you for a great evening!
Thank you so much, Tracy! We'll make sure to give Lauren all of the praise for her awesome hospitality!
I had made a reservation for outside only to be shown inside. When I objected I was given a table at the entry. Unacceptable. Once finally seated the service and food was impeccable m.
I'm really glad to hear we were able to get you the table you preferred and that the rest of your experience was great. Thank you for sharing your feedback; we'll be sure to take it to heart & use it as an opportunity to retrain. Hope you dine with us again.
We had a terrific lunch. I think the hostesses mixed up my name with someone else. We really enjoyed our waitress.
Thank you for the great review!
Great food and excellent customer service!
We appreciate the kind words, Perspicacity!
Very nice experience having lunch with one of my employees - great setup on patio with excellent service. Very enjoyable
Thank you for the outstanding review, Craig! We appreciate the kind words about our ambiance & service. Hoping we can continue to be a regular spot for you! Take care.
The perfect food and service
Thank you for the kind review!
Too expensive for me! I leave hungry!! Waitress said salad had cranberries (yuk). Then she corrected herself and said it did not. But it came with cranberries! YUK!
Hi Corvette. We deeply apologize for any confusion on the menu. Please know, we are happy to modify any dish to your liking. While our salads are on the lighter side, I would love to invite you back to try a dish you may find to be more filling. Would you be so kind to email me directly at Nancy.Geden@TrueFoodKitchen.comso I can assist you?
Great food as usual and service. One of my favorites
Thank you, Carlo! Honored to be one of your favorites!
Well organized for Covid-19 response to dining on patio
Thank you very much! These words mean a lot to us. We appreciate it.
A nice find in Orange County. The food was excellent.
Thank you for the great review!
Food was good as always, but unfortunately our reservation was given to another party. Only until we asked how much longer (after waiting by the podium for about 10-15 minutes and watching other parties walk up without reservations and be seated) were we told that our reservation was already sat. We had to inform the hostess that we were not seated as we were still waiting to be called.
We were seated immediately after that and the server and food were great!
Tammy, thank you for sharing this experience. We are so sorry about the confusion with the reservation, but are glad we could rectify it quickly. We'll take this feedback to heart and ensure we learn from this.
Excellent food. Casual dining.
Thank you for the 5 star review, Pamela!
Everything was good but quite expensive!
