The restaurant and ambience was nice and trendy. The food was outstanding, and the service was great.
Love the edamame dumplings! A must try item on the menu. Also the dragon fruit limead is refreshing to sip while dining. I really enjoyed my grass fed steak tacos. The meat is so tender and flavorful. Highly recommended to come for lunch or dinner.
Good phood. Nyce patio. Ghood service. Nice heater.
I love coming to True Food, it’s such a great place to spend time with people I love.
Aw, I love this! Thank you for including us!
Delicious food as always. Ran out of the poke rolls and there was wait for the cauliflower but rest was great.
Hi Taylor. We're so sorry for the low stock on the spring rolls! I anticipate we will be much better prepared moving forward, so I hope you get to try them soon. Thank you for the review.
Fresh. California cuisine. Vegan friendly, not many meat choices or variety for steak and potato people.
Thank you for your review. We appreciate the 5 stars!
The man at the host station was dismissive and almost rude. He seemed annoyed that we arrived 7 minutes before our reservation time.
Our server was friendly but generally unavailable. The lasagne was good, the shrimp tacos ok, but greasy, the tomato soup just so-so and the teriyaki quinoa bowl was absolutely inedible.
We would have sent the quinoa bowl back, but we didn’t see our server until he presented the check. It wasn’t worth the effort to wait any longer.
The wine was very good, but it’s hard to ruin good wine.
For the price, the food and service could be much, much better.
Our party of 5 ate on the patio and it was perfect. The food is healthy and tasty and unique. We loved everything we ordered.
First time back in years. Menu shrunk. Average quality and easy overpriced. Great service tho!
Hi there! We just launched our spring menu yesterday, and I’m happy to say it is our usual size & variety of offerings. I’m sad to hear you felt the quality was just average, as we do make everything from fresh, whole ingredients in our from scratch kitchen. I would love to treat you to one of our new menu items in hopes of helping you find something up your alley. Please take me up on my offer any time by calling at 949-644-2400 to make a reservation. - Nancy
First time there. Loved the food and they were SO careful and great with my celiac daughter. Only wish there was one local to my home.
Great food and customer service. Always a good time.
Delicious Healthy food!
Thanks so much!
Waitress was great!
Awesome! Thank you so much!
Easter Brunch, what a Blessing 💞
We love True Food Kitchen! The food is delicious, there is something for everyone. The service is always great, very attentive, but not pushy. I love the Seasonal ingredient salad and all of the appetizers too!
All around pleasant staff, quick service and delicious food.
With a group of highly needy people, our server handled it like a champ!
Food was good
One of our faves to enjoy delish healthy food, a great atmosphere and really good service. We always come back. The patio is so nice and relaxing for a dinner with family.
True Food never disappoints. Easy to make reservation while shopping at the mall and then to walk over.
Thank you, happy eater!
We sat outside. It was lovely. The Winter Immunity Bowl was fabulous. We were going to sit inside but they had limited tables because of current dining restrictions and the only table available was the one directly in front of their wonderful open air kitchen and it would have been way too loud. The service was exceptional.
So fresh and delicious! Pizza could have needed a bit of a flavor (suggesting roasted garlic or goat cheese), but overall so good.
Thank you, Joanna!
Nice place, very clean and organized. Waiters are nice, happy, and polite. Food tasted delicious.
Very good and fresh food, nice terrace under the yellow umbrellas
Thank you! We would love to hear how we can earn your 5th star next visit! - Nancy
Great COVID friendly and safe enjoyable brunch!
Hearing you had a safe dining experience is one of the best compliments we can receive right now! Thank you for sharing!
Food is always good at Gr
Thanks for the 5 stars, Liz!
The food here is always so full of flavor! It is delicious and feels so clean. We ate out on the patio and had a wonderful server - Daniel. He was the perfect amount of attentive and friendly. Great lunch ☺️
Thank you for the excellent review, Cassie! We will be sure to share with the team!
Overall good experience and food. We did have one issue during our dining experience, they brought out one of the meals wrong. They fixed it and brought out the correct meal, but it was a little bit of a bust that my friend didn’t have their food when everyone else did.
Judd, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are so sorry about the mistake! We understand how things like this can affect your experience, so please know we take it to heart and genuinely apologize.
The receptionist was excellent.
The service was horrible.
The value was poor at best.
Charles, can we talk about what happened on your visit? I know we took your credit card in advance to take care of your bill. I would love to discuss further, if you have time. You can reach me at the restaurant at 949-644-2400. - Nancy
Needed salt & pepper on panini & hash. Water ordered never arrived. People next to us were in a heated discussion about work. Not the best environment for celebrating an anniversary because of those two individuals trash in a third-party who wasn’t there. The lasagna Bolognese is incredibly improved in size and portion but a little less in flavor, much more spinach now and less fennel sausage flavor coming through. But appreciated a much larger portion!
Beverages were fine are usually always get her coffee opted for a French press of mint tea that was great . Wish they would serve Splenda as a acid reflux celiac diabetic he is my only choiceButternut squash soup was absolutely disappointing, bland 1/2 a bowl filled portion but truly tasteless sweet with a weak texture. DESSERT this time was perfectly cooked flourless chocolate cake with incredible ice cream on top to get a great job, sometimes it can be very dry and lifeless BUT Gifted anniversary dessert incredible, perfectly chocolate gooey and fresh. A wonderful finish!
We appreciate your detailed review, Denise, and will be sure to share it with our Chef Team. Thank you!
Our new FAVORITE restaurant. The bar is just gorgeous too. Going here feels like you are on vacation in an elegant hotel
in Spain. It is an EVENT!! Very romantic. You can sit by the fireside in the lounge afterwards. So many nice people here. Food is yummy, and drinks are OUTSTANDING. Seriously, go. Particularly if it’s for a very special occasion. ❤️ Melissa and Andrew
Melissa & Andrew, it is so refreshing to read a review like this! Glad you enjoyed! We appreciate the compliments, and hope to see you soon!
True Foods is always a perfect place for lunch-- good food, service ambiance, etc. We are regular customers!
We greatly appreciate your loyal patronage! Looking forward to serving you again soon!
Ive been ordering the chopped salad with grilled chicken for years! It’s always been so good ( in San Diego). But here in Newport! Very skimpy serving and not much ingredients. I was so disappointed and will probably never go back to this location.
Hi Charna. Thank you for taking the time to review us, and I'm so sorry you felt like your salad was under-portioned. Did we happen to bring out more toppings for you? We really concentrate on providing value in our food, and I recognize we missed the mark here. I've shared your review with our Chef Team as we look to improve from it. Thank you.
Friends meeting for happy hour.
Thank you for the 5-star review!
I love how healthy and delicious everything on the menu at TFK is. We sat inside, and while not busy, it was still very loud. Hard to hear each other at our table of 4.
Hi DJ Ma! Thank you for your review and the feedback. While we do try to keep a lively dining room, please know the patio can offer a little bit of a quieter space should you prefer it in the future. We appreciate your patronage!
ordered my favorite dish -spaghetti squash with tomato sauce and chicken.
It was totally tasteless - even the chicken. My dining companion ordered same - with same result. They tried bringing us a different sauce - it did help a little. Also extremely hard pieces of squash mixed in - basically unedible.
Serving staff was very gracious. Offered to bring something else. We declined but left most of the dish.
Waitress did take 1 of the entrees off of the bill and some cookies.
Mitigated a little - but I was very disappointed. Don't think I will be back for awhile :(
Hi Tigre. I am the manager who you spoke with on your visit. We're so sorry you didn't enjoy the casserole and are happy we were minimally able to take care of the dish, while offering you dessert. We've shared your feedback with our Chef Team and will be sure to take it to heart. Hope you decide to come back sooner rather than later. Feel free to ask for me on your next visit. - Nancy
Thank you for visiting!
Safe outdoor dining, a bit cool since heaters were not all working. Food was excellent, as usual and I loved my ancient grains bowl.
Thank you for the great review! We're so sorry you weren't warm in your dining experience and will be sure to take this to heart. We are certainly looking forward to the warm weather returning, as well! Hope you visit us again soon!
I would recommend but some portions are smaller. If you are hungry or have a big appetite you should order appetizers.
Thank you for the review, Shawn!
Lousy service! Food wasn't good either. Steak in taco steaks very chewy.
Hi Sara. I am so sorry you did not enjoy our experience with us. I have asked our Chefs to look into the quality of our steak, and we will address this immediately. Would it be possible to hear more details about the service you received? Please feel free to e-mail me directly at Nancy.Geden@TrueFoodKitchen.comm or call me at the restaurant at 949-644-2400. Thank you. - Nancy
