I love True Food! We sat in the patio area for our dinner as it rained, but we were still super warm from the heaters, so the rain just created a great ambience. I'll always recommend True Food to friends :)

Has great quality good and awesome vegan options. Service was also phenomenal - waitresses/hostess and runners were all quick and attentive every step of the way! Downsides: drinks and food are the same price ($15 for curry plate (no meat or rice included) and $15 for a cocktail) so it can get pricey really quick. For the cost of my meal with drinks I was unimpressed. I was still hungry. Definitely not worth the price.

The açaí bowl was good but not out of the ordinary. The pecan crusted chicken salad was ok. The chicken was very thin and leathery.

The food is quite good with an abundance of vegetarian options. I’ve had their flatbreads, a few different bowls, a salad and tonight the poke bowl. But the food is probably about 25-30% overpriced just because it is in Fashion Valley. And the poke bowl I could get at several places around Clairemont for cheaper and a larger portion of fish. Nice selection of wine and a few good beers. Overall I like eating here with my wife who’s vegetarian but, like all things at Fashion Valley, this place is over priced. I suppose they do make up for it with excellent service.

Portions are extremely small. 1 bite of chicken for so much extra money. Awful service. Took 25 mins for 1 salad. Wish I could get a refund.

Nice enough food, healthy for sure. Sweet potato hash is not a hash but just sautéed diced sweet potato. Health but lacking flavor or edge. Service was meh.

We enjoy the food and drinks here often. The service is always great, very friendly and efficient waitstaff. So many options on the menu, pizza, salads, burgers, all made with fantastic fresh ingredients and prepared exactly as you ordered it. Love the Adaptogenetic tea and the fresh Hummus w/ crudite and handmade bread.

Very good dining experience. Food is so good and servers are attentive and polite. Ambiance was also perfect. We visited this place two times in three days. First time we had Panang Curry Bowl, Brussel sprouts starter, pizza. Second time we had Edamame Dumplings, Charred Cauliflower for starters and Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl and Korean Glass Noodles bowl. And Flour less Chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was perfect. Wish they were in Seattle too. Will miss dining here

Our server Michelle was personable and delightful. The Korean Glass Noodles, Hummus, Dumplings, and Salmon were made to perfection. They comped my chocolate cake for my birthday, and my friend also ordered cookie and ice cream which they kindly also comped. I love that they have nutrition info online and can't wait to come back!

We love True Foods/Fashion Valley. The food is great, the wait times are great but what makes it the best experience for us is the wonderful server we had: Zoe! It’s like we hit jackpot when we are in her section. She makes our visits extra special.

The edamame guacamole appetizer was super super good! I also had the Sea Bass and my husband had the Poke bowl… both were great! We shared the skinny margarita and it was refreshing and not overly sweet. Finally, we had the cookies and ice cream- amazing!!!! What a great first experience! Wish you had a location in Reno, Nv!

Do NOT order a mimosa unless you enjoy paying $13 for less than 4 ounces of a spilled drink. The food is tasty but OVERpriced. There are too many less expensive better restaurants for your appetites and wallets.
