Ben was absolutely the best server I've had in quite a while. He was attentive to our every need and want. I must admit that the young lady (sorry, I didn't get her name) also was very helpful, going the extra mile to bring over a heater for the comfort of an elderly woman with me.

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.

Nick, we appreciate your feedback and have used this as an opportunity to help retrain our host stand. I sincerely apologize for leaving you with an unfriendly feeling. As you know, great hospitality is our driving principal, and we clearly missed the mark on your visit. Our menu has changed slightly due to current circumstances, but I'm curious what dishes you were looking for so I could share with our culinary team. Please e-mail me at Nancy.Geden @ TrueFoodKitchen if you'd be so kind.

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.

Hi Laurie. Thank you for reaching out.

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.
