At True Food, we have a simple philosophy: serve seasonal, honest food that tastes really good. We’re a group of health-minded people that care about what we put in our bodies, as well as the footprint we leave on the environment. The ingredients coming in the back door are clean, mostly organic (we follow the Dirty Dozen) and never fake or artificial. Whether you're into the latest superfood salad or just want a pizza and burger, you'll find it here. Want a blended juice or a martini? We've got both. The chefs make everything from scratch, which means you'll know what's in your food and where it came from. At the end of the day, it's all about great food and great service.

This was our third visit to True Food Kitchen. We both had salads and they were both outstanding. The salads have interesting and delicious ingredients, and the dressings are light and don't overwhelm the salad. Our server was especially helpful - he struck the balance between offering suggestions without being pushy. One other note: due to traffic we were 20 minutes late and they were understanding; we only had to wait 5 minutes for a table on a very busy Saturday night.

I treated my boyfriend to a laidback Valentine’s dinner. Food was delicious, as always, and service was great. This is one of my favorite places to come because I can enjoy a vegan meal while my boyfriend still has other protein options.

We're happy to hear you found us Leslie, we have TONS of Vegan options. If it's not noted on the Menu as Vegan we can most likely modify to make it Vegan for you, just ask your Server how!

Everything was okay. Food was okay on this particular day. I’ve been there when food and service was better. Waiter took awhile for the check but it was the lunchtime rush. Chips for guacamole were way too hard/crispy. In hindsight I wish we had sent them back. Like they were cut your mouth sharp.

Both appetizer and main meal arrived after a long wait and cold. The waiter was apologetic with the delivery of the appetizer but we never saw him after that and never got to express our confer with anyone. Our brick fired pizza was over fired so I should have been piping hot....instead it was cold, rock hard and burned.

Couldn’t understand the server
Drink was slow coming from the bar
The vegan appetizer had dairy in the dipping sauce????
Inconsistent

Be vegan on those items or not but don’t call it vegan and bring a dairy sauce

Responded on January 25, 2020

We're sorry that we missed that mark during your last visit to TFK. All of our Menu Items are labeled (Vegan, Gluten Free and Vegetarian). While not all of our items come Vegan we can certainly modify most dishes to accommodate your dietary needs. We sure hope you give us another try in the future.

My party and I had such an AMAZING time at True Food! Our server O was the absolute best, very attentive and nice even to an excited group of young ladies..lol We were there for a Surprise Birthday dinner and we picked this place because we all are doing a Daniel's Fast this month with our church, and the food did not disappoint. A little pricey, but good food none the less!
