My husband was sick for 2 days after that dinner, and the bar service was not great. Had to wait a while for service

Order was a little wrong; fries instead of salad, but fixed fast. They need to have signage out front saying where to park since they no longer have valet. That was a 15 minute process and not a good start to the lunch.

Thank you for the honest review skaty. We're so sorry to hear there was a mistake made on your side but happy to hear our Team fixed that quickly for you. We have limited parking in the front of TFK or a parking garage located on the south side of BLVD Place near North Italia. We hope this helps and look forward to serving you again soon!

Almost always have a great experience at this location. Just depends on the staff. But this visit in particular, the server was great. Food was DELICIOUS. I recommend the squash pie. There were a lot of people it seemed like because it was very loud, but they now have separators and that made me feel a lot more comfortable. It was my friends first time there and she absolutely loved it.

It’s amazing how subpar service can finish an otherwise great experience. We love the food, drinks and ambiance. We spent a lot of time chasing down our waiter or utilized other wait staff to order additional drinks, condiments, and even our check.

I was requesting to be seated outside. The host said they are all reserved. But i saw the place was empty for whole time we were there plus two people were seated outside. As a result i couldn’t have a meal because i had to be on an office call and didn’t want music in the back. I needed to sit outdoor and have my meal.
I had to sit in the car waiting for my husband to finish his meal. I understand there are situations but the host wouldn’t even give any answer why two people are seated outdoors and we couldn’t. I was coming back from the hospital and was starving, i had to get on a work call. I didn’t appreciate how it was handled and i left without eating.

We are so sorry to hear we were unable to accommodate this for you Mehryne. The Patio is by far our most requested seating and they are booked daily, for this reason we have added additional Patio seating for our Guests in hopes to accommodate everyone that prefers to dine with us outside. I would love to invite you back as my Guest and hope you will allow us the opportunity to make this right for you and your Husband.

The server was nice and suggested proteins for our bowls, ancient grains and teriyaki 🥣s. Our table ordered Edemame Guacamole and roasted Brussel Sprouts which were delicious 😋. My friend is vegan and had never eaten at True Food Kitchen and he really enjoyed it. We're both looking forward to going there again.

I saw a manager cleaning tables and sanitizing. She was wiping chairs as well. I am not sure what she was using to clean tables, and I do wish she was cleaning more thoroughly.

Staff was wearing masks 😷.
Only issue I can report negatively is that there were no paper towels in the restroom.

I liked the vibe of the restaurant and the outdoor seating. The edamame dumplings were excellent and the apple lemonade was good as well. The service was a little confusing with the online and waiter in person. Also, the QR code didn't work for me. The Lasagna Bolognese was pretty good but the cheese was a little too strong for me.

Thank you for this honest review JayR, we're so sorry to hear the QR code did not work for you during your last visit. Please know the OnDemand (QR Code Ordering) is just an additional option for our Guests to control their experience so they are comfortable dining out with limited interaction during these unprecedented times. We also have Menus and can take your order as you are accustomed to. We are happy you found a few menu items you enjoyed and hope we can invite you back to try a few more!

I understand the need to be cautious with Covid and contactless service, but this was contactless service! Maybe they should consider the concept to counter service as there is no point for waitstaff? Why tip if I am doing everything . . .

Responded on November 13, 2020

Thank you for your review Christina. Like many businesses we have made changes to our service model to adapt to the unprecedented times we are in. Some Guests have welcomed the changes while others prefer their service more interactive with our Team. Please know that the system in place is there only as an option and we still offer menus and can participate as much or as little in your Dining experience as you desire. I hope you will allow us the opportunity to serve you again soon!
