It was my second time in SM location. Very disappointed.
Waiter, the curly guy was so annoyed and was arguing with us regarding menu.
The food came cold.
We won’t go there again!
We absolutely love going to TruFood and are thankful that they are back open! The food was amazing....as always! The team members are incredibly nice and responsive. Felt very comfortable!
Thank you Craig!
Always have a good time and an excellent meal. They are doing. A terrific job with social distancing and sanitizing. We are inside and felt very comfortable. Wonderful wait staf and the food was excellent as always. It’s a must when we are in Santa Monica!
Lizzy an excellent waitress
We will make sure Lizzy hears your praise!! Thank you Jeff
Took 20 minutes to be seated, even with a reservation. They changed their menu for the worse.
Staff was reduced dramatically.
Hello! I was hoping to find out what menu items were missing, as a lot of them we can still make happen! Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your concern, I am confident we can make it right. Thank you
They changed their menu taking off the beverage, vegetable plate & main course panang curry bowl I used to get. Said no onions & no dairy, took a while for food & had to change soup after first being told no onion in it but there was. Server had to snatch it back from runner. Ordered cauliflower instead which came in hot plate but was cold upon biting into it. Main course salad came after wait with blue cheese in it, ate half & left the rest after not wanting to send a second dish back & being hungry. Left a good tip for server as not a lot of tables full & these folks need to earn a living but will not bother to go back.
Great service food was good but not hot enough.
No atmosphere I have been to other TFKs with much better ambience
Still in pandemic period. Well-spaced tables; everything looking very clean. Staff diligent about safety practices. We switched to veganism last year, and this will be one of our go-to places. Had the vegan double cheeseburger with sweet potato hash, cauliflower appetizer, tomato soup, and took home a piece of avocado key lime pie. All spectacular. Though our reservation was for outdoor, we changed our mind and the hostess helped us find the perfect indoor table. Very helpful service by Kenny.
Food is outstanding and the service top notch. I love the entire menu. Can’t not order the Korean noodles!! The kale salad is ridiculous as well. Marg pizza, soooo yummy
I love the Korean Noodles too!!!! Thank you Joey
Service was horrible. Food was prepared wrong, twice... Waitress ignored our request to move inside because she said only tables outside her area were available. She could not help us there...
Good morning. This does not sound like us at all, I apologize. I want to look into this and correct these behaviors. I tried to look up your reservation but I could not locate one with the name you posted from. Are you able to reach out so I can resolve for you and future scenarios? Thank you
Always a great meal - our server was excellent and the hostess was very accommodating to be sure we were happy with our table!. Could not have had a nicer dinner! Bravo!
Wow! Thank you for the comments, love that you shared your experience with us.
wonderful food, great service and a terrific place to go.....
Thank you "foodie"!!!! Cannot wait to see you soon.
Great service! Outstanding food for a good price. Staff is always courteous
Delicious food. Really appreciate the gluten free options. Great service. Seemed COVID safe.
Consistently great food! The menu offers something for everyone.
The server was amazing and bonded with my son over having braces. My date, my 12 year old 6th grader son to celebrate his straight A’s was lovely thank you making it special!
Decided to take a drive down the 1 for Easter brunch. Ended up having items off of the brunch menu - the strawberry quinoa pancakes and the scramble. Took some of it home along with a slice of the avocado key lime pie. Service was good.
Nice healthy take on a lot of traditional food. Location in Santa Monica is not the best. Some good tables but many terrible tables
Hi Nicole, Hopefully we can find you a table you love, if for some reason you do not, just let us know and we will do our best to re-seat you! Thank you so much!
All the food was very good but the selection of food and drinks was very small.
Hello glad you enjoyed the food, however, I do want the menu to seem more broad. Was there something in particular missing that you would have enjoyed? Let me know so we can make it happen!
Food was great, service was stellar, and it was totally enjoyable.
Roasted cauliflower was the bomb!
Hi Lauren that you for the review! Appreciate your comments.
We dreamed of the Chopped Salad and Chicken Sausage Lasagna ever since trying them out last week. Unprompted, the portions came already split. Every bite was scrumptious. We’ll be back!!!
This is one of the worst experiences I’ve had. The food was literally disgusting. We are vegans
Fast and friendly service. Great location and food was very good. Nice selection of fresh foods on the menu. Will definitely be going back.
Great customer service
Thank you so much!
Delicious, healthy food. Service was a little slow, but I think because of Covid-19 regulations.
Thank you Laura!!!!
Food wasn’t great.
A menu item was charged incorrectly on our bill. We pointed it out but they didn’t change it on our bill! Weird
Hello, Are you able to reach out directly so we can make sure your charge is reconciled correctly? My name is Logan and I am the General Manager, you can contact me here at the store at 310.593.8300. Thank you
Expensive tacos that gave me foos poisoning
Hello, I want to gather some information about your post. Are you able to reach out to me directly? My name is Logan and I am the General Manager, 310.593.8300. Thank you!
I love the food here. It’s always delicious and also healthy!
Coffee was cold. Food was lukewarm. Waitress was delightful.
Location, service, ambience, and alcoholic drinks were great. Food was just okay. A bit over seasoned for my taste. Squash soup was very good though.
Hello! We want to be great in all aspects and want to show you that we are usually five stars! Let me know what I we can do to get you there.
I used to love True Foods and would go there frequently. Their food quality has gone way down hill. My Turkey burger, which used to be my go-to, was completely dry and flavorless and the side kale salad used to be served with shaved parmesan not plastic, fake, extremely poor quality cheese. Also, the kale salad started to turn that color when kale goes bad. I was very disappointed by the lack of care in quality and will not be returning to True Foods. I hope someone sees this review because I believe my honest perspective could shift back to the True Foods I used to know :/. Very very disappointed.
Great service. Good food. Nice outdoor area.
Thank you Terry!
Sat outside. Food was delicious. Server was friendly and helpful
Good food and great service. Went back the following evening.
Not a lot of vegan or vegeterian option, was suprised
It was annoying to use cell phone to see he menu. No paper menus were available for brunch items which is what we came for. Also did not have either half & half or soy milk for coffee. Otherwise very pleasant and so enjoyed patio dining.
Thank you Cherellis. We usually do have paper menus available upon request. I will follow up with the team and make sure they are accessible. Appreciate your review!
Wonderful outdoor dining experience! The food and drinks were delicious and the service was impeccable. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was that the QR code menu was difficult to navigate. Fortunately our waiter saved us the trouble and gave us paper menus. Would highly recommend!
Thank you! Hopefully we can get back to five stars next time!
Loved it. Friendly staff and the food was top tier. Not too expensive either.
