Service was super slow. Wasn’t offered drink refills for long periods of time. Food took over an hour from ordering.

The steak tacos seemed stale and tasteless. The beans were as exciting as a can of pinto beans. I usually get a hamburger but it always arrives cold. Drinks are just weird tasting.

For a "healthy" food place - the calorie counts were surprisingly high but taste was very good.
Loved the broad selection all but two were over 450 calories.
VERY LOUD at lunch - fortunately we had a corner table.

The server was excellent. He knew the menu very well and made good recommendations. The Unbelievable Burger was a minor disaster. It was undercooked. The server came to the rescue and solved the problem.

We come to the restaurant frequently. The food is good and interesting.

Management does not seem interested in the customers. They breeze bye without saying a word.

I would suggest tastings for new items.

We surely would recommend trying this place.

Made reservations as this place is packed on Friday night. Waited about 10 minutes then seated. Great service and accommodating. All food from kitchen looked great! My wife and I are on the Daniel fast for the first 21-days of January snd, while this may not be on point 100% for it, this food appeared to follow our diet very well. It was a great date spot. Honestly, we’re not vegetarian or vegan at all, but this makes me want to be one. The food was outstanding from the appetizer to the entree and yes, we did splurge and had the squash pie (sweetened with maple syrup so technically a fail if you’re a true Daniel diet follower) all was outstanding. Easy parking in the garage for free and elevator went right to the restaurant without having to get outdoors on a rainy night. Spot on and we’ll be there again sometime soon.
Try it, you’ll love it!!!

Thoughtful and creative food options. We had Korean noodles, cauliflower polenta and neopolitan pizza and edamame quacamole and fish tacos. The edamame quac was stellar. Loved the korean noodles but would have liked more vegetables. The other dishes were tasty. Nothing blew us away (like the True Foods did in Chicago). Overall though, a great restaurant we look for wherever we go.

My cousin was in from out of town and has recently adopted a healthy wearing life style so I knew I had to take her to True Food. She ordered the Good Earth Kale Cobb and could not stop.talking about how good it was. I usually have the Chicken Sausage pizza which is also amazing but decided to try something new, so the Grass-fed Steak Tacos it was...amazing!!! The pickled jicama and dried sweet corn made the taco. I have never had a bad meal here!

We love coming to True Food because of all the healthy selections, the tasty dishes, and their willingness to accommodate special dietary requests. We love the roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts appetizers. The poke bowl is delicious, and the chicken sausage pizza is, too! Because our daughter is on a special diet, we really appreciated their understanding and willingness to modify dishes to suit her.

Came one day and it was amazing, came back a few days later with our family because it was so awesome. It was horrible. Our food took over an hour. Everything came out cold. I even had to send my pizza back and order something else because it was the worst thing I’ve ever tasted. The manager took it off our check but in reality, the whole meal should have been comped because EVERYTHING came out cold.

Beautiful inside but it was cold I had to eat with my coat on. Waiter was excellent. Brussels sprout appetizer was great. Fish tacos bland and poor cuts. Poke bowl mediocre, lacking flavor despite multiple ingredients. My daughters salmon was good.

Great menu. Fresh ingredients excellently prepared. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Ancient Grains bowl, and my burger was tasty. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our server, Rachel. This was our first time visiting True Food, and she took extra time with us going over the menu. She was truly excellent!!

What I love about True Foods is that the menu truly has something for everyone. I’m 90% vegan so I love having a variety of healthy vegan choices. Most of my friends are not and so True Foods has many delicious options for them also.

True Food has a very interesting menu. Food is good. Now for the but, when it opened the presentation was much better, food came to the table at the right temperature and most of all they were on top of the seasoning. Soups were at great consistency, now they are not quite as good.

They can move from good to fabulous with a little more attention. We will surely re-visit.

We were seated at a table next to a table with two gentlemen talking very loudly. We were put in between them and some ladies. The restaurant was almost empty. Not sure why we had to be seated there.
The waitress came to our “aid” 4 times in less than 5 min. We had never been and could barely read the menu for her asking what we wanted.

The food was good but was all brought out at the same time...tacos, flatbread, and salad. She did ask if we wanted it at the same time and our answer Was just whenever it was ready. I don’t think that was good planning on our part :)
