I’ve been to True Food Kitchen probably 6 times and this time the food was so bad I didn’t eat it. Tasted stale and dry and off.
Hello, As this seems out of the feedback we usually receive I was hoping to gather some more information. Would you be willing to provide more specific info so we can make it right? Thank you
I’ve been to True Food in other locations. First time @ Santa Monica location. Food was mediocre & not fresh. Service was helpful. Seated outdoor due to COVID but our table was all the way in the back & it felt sterile.
Would have prefered to sit on the patio vs the mall, but completely understand the circumstances!
Thank you Julie!
TFK always satisfies and the staff are pleasant and courteous.
Thank you Hank!
Service was excellent, the waitress was very helpful enabling me to order off the menu to make a really wonderful brunch selection. The food tasted great, the quality is wonderful, I was unrushed and the coffee was bottomless. I will certainly return.
Went out to dinner for the first time since COVID started. They made me feel very comfortable. The tables were space out very well. Everything was socially distant and sanitized. Service was quick and friendly. Thank you true food!
I had read good reviews but even then was pleasantly surprised at just how good everything was - loved it!
Wow! Thank you very much
I really like it
Cold no heaters
Good experience but cost of meal was too high
Thank you! Hopefully we see you again soon.
Great salad (the "Seasonal"), fresh and flavorful.....
Thank you Anthony!!
Perfect day and the grass fed burger was amazing!
Thank you Donna!!
The food isn’t as good as I remember ... and they have a limited menu.
Love love this restaurant. Wish they would open one in Ventura area
Nice outside patios. Safe and sound. Nice to be in SM

Great outdoor patio seating area. Awesome service as usual. Thanks so much!
Thank you Nisha!!
Went here for my dad's bday and the food was so good! The staff are so nice as well. The jackfruit wraps were amazing
Thank you for sharing your Dad's birthday with us!!! Very honored to be your choice and cannot wait to see you soon!
This was my first time eating out since COVID-19 and True Food Kitchen is being very cautious and thorough about their processes. I appreciate the efforts they are making to keep everyone safe!
Hi NIsha, We appreciate you! Very happy to read that you felt safe dining here, that is our first priority! Hope to see you soon for patio seating!
Always love coming here and always have great service! Definitely recommend it and will be back!
It was the first LA restaurant we’ve dined in during COVID-19. Fabulous as usual! The True Foods team is working hard to welcome everyone back safely. Really superb effort.
Thank you for the comments!!
Waitress was good so it was sound
I have been here 3 times. The fresh fruit drinks are fantastic. I ordered the Korean Noodles. The texture was fine but the sauce was over powered by the chili which prevented me from enjoying the noodles and vegetables in the dish. I am used to eating spicy foods but this had too much.
Thank you Carmen, We are reviewing this dish to make sure it is executed properly. I appreciate you letting us know! Thank you
I came here when they opened years ago and I was blown away. Such great food! I talk about this place all the time for over a decade The service is impeccable. Despite the working conditions with masks and the stress Of pandemic, the servers, bus boys, the hostess. Everybody was top notch. I guess I’m sad because I can’t order the kale salad and all the other great stuff on the menu. I appreciate the effort but the set menu was a little disappointing. Although I ordered the salmon and it was off the charts delicious.! Can’t wait till regular menu comes back
Good Afternoon! We are excited to be back to our full menu soon too. Working through the supply issues has been a challenge but we should be on track soon enough! (Including the Kale Salad!!) Thank you for returning and we are excited to see you soon enough.
I had the grass fed burger and my daughter ordered the shrimp tacos. Both were excellent. Still getting used to the new social distancing and mask rules but it was a very nice lunch.
Very very good food & very very friendly service!
What a boomer . Used to be one of my fav restaurants ever. Was so excited to return after covid . Super limited menu, food was meh and service was awful .
Hello, I appreciate you taking the time to write your review. We are having difficulty sourcing a lot of our fresh ingredients and felt it best to make a select menu of the offerings we are confident we can provide at this time. An expanded menu will be starting Wednesday. Secondly, I want to get more thoughts on your service. We adjusted our steps of service to limit table contact. I think your actionable feedback would be very valuable. Please let me know. Thank you
Healthy food options, great craft cocktails. Service at the bar is impeccable!!
Goo d service, good drinks, edible, healthy but mediocre food
Friends and family dinner get together was wonderful at True Food.
Thank you for sharing your family with us! Wonderful to read.
This place always has great ambiance. The price is slightly high but the portions are exactly what you need to eat and nothing more which is very interesting.
Wonderful food, healthy and appetizing, staffed by folks who aim to please. We got lots of attention. How nice to eat at a place that serves filtered water because that's all they have!
Thank you so much!!
Very nice 👍 yummy & healthy. Great vibe, but a bit loud. Many choices. Need more desserts ☺️
Good food, everybody was happy. I also liked the fact that you can order a table for large groups (there were 13 of us!) without having a set group menu and everybody could order individually.
Absolutely fantastic feedback. Thank you Anna!
Always great- outstanding manager
Our server was very kind and patient with us. The food was wonderful.
