Good food and food service. Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts appetizers were especially good. The wine we ordered wasn’t chilled when we ordered and took well into the appetizers to be ready . The restaurant did bring comp champagne glasses and offer comp desert which was nice. But when you have wine on the list, you should have at least a few bottles ready to serve.

My friend and I enjoy eating at true foods kitchen. She is vegan and we both enjoy the atmosphere and delicious food. The wait staff is always helpful on what they recommend.

Our waiter kept leaving us going do other things. We had to stop other waiters to ask for straws, extra sauces, etc. The other waiters were so nice and helpful. The tab was really high for the small portions we had.

It is always always a joy to come to this restaurant. Had the sweetest waitress and I feel like no matter who I get, that’s always the case. Everything about my meal was INCREDIBLE. I swear even the water is crisper here. We had the Brussel sprouts appetizer, butternut squash pizza (🤤🤤🤤) and squash pie for dessert (the coco cream will blow your mind).

It was truly an amazing dining experience. The waitress and staff were very attentive to us and went out of their way to help us have a great experience. I was very impressed with how flexible they were with the menu. They worked with me to enjoy their food with all the vegan options and requested substitutions. Even one of the chefs came to my table to clarify my selections. It was absolutely perfect!

Usually love the food at True Foods but recently went and the quinoa in the ancient grain bowl was very hard and crunchy (which it’s not supposed to be). Our waiter was great and replaced it promptly.

The Beautiful Atmosphere mixed with the Excellent Service was so pleasing. The smells of the food ordered before we sat down were so mouth watering. I wanted to order so many different dishes. I had difficulty loading the APP to receive my Birthday Dessert and I was Blessed with the Chia Pudding anyway....... We will be back!!!

I was relieved to find a restaurant that caters to healthy eating lifestyles - as I have several dietary restrictions these days. It was nice to be able to select from a menu that had a lot of options for me, and that the kitchen staff was willing to adapt a dish for me. The food was very fresh and very good. (I had the antioxidant bowl and a fantastic sparkling green tea made with pomegranate and something else I'd never heard of, but it was so yummy and refreshing!) It's nice to know that I can go out to a nice restaurant for dinner and actually have choices that won't throw me off course.

Restaurant food and atmosphere was good. Prices are really good and affordable. Staff was good. There was ample parking on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant can be hard to find if you end up on the wrong side of the building you have to walk around the building or navigate up and down the stairs to the other side of the building. More signage would be good.

I went with my friend. I had eaten at True Foods a few weeks ago and could not wait for a return visit.
My friend and I enjoyed the food so much. Our server recommended our selections.
We will return soon again. The service was fabulous. Made dining there absolutely enjoyable.

Waiter forgot one order and had to be reminded after the entree had already come out - there was no compensation for it either.

The service was great. But the noise level was at an all time high. Definitely not a place for people with anxiety. The food tasted great but the portions for the price were really small. Drinks were awesome! I would have given it a 5 overall but I chose 4 because it was incredibly loud and small food portions. I will however visit again.

Location is great but I wasn't thrilled with the food. No bread as well, please, I'm skinny and there're healthy bread options out there. Music was a lil loud in my opinion for the level of general noise. Waitress was a 10, super courteous and attentive.

Our days of coming here regularly are over I am afraid. Burgers were soggy, cooked incorrectly according to order, and just didn't taste the same. Sweet potato sides were undercooked and yet somehow mushy. Dumplings were doughy and undercooked. Waiter was busy with a friend the whole time we were there. Just not going to be my go to place any longer and I am sad as I love their burgers, Margherita pizza and spaghetti squash usually.
