The food here is always delicious! The outdoor patio is really nice too.
We tried doing everything with the QR code this time which I didn't enjoy as much. I rather have a waiter come and take my order. But everything else was wonderful. Great manager as well.

Service was exceptionally slow when we went. I am willing to chalk it up to post-pandemic opening with (possibly) limited staffing. Food was good as always. Will definitely give it another try.

The waitress was great and very attentive the only downside a bus boy moved our umbrella from above our table to move it to someone else’s table that came in after us but the waitress moved us to another table to give us shade.

The menu isn't extensive but the food is great. Portions are appropriate (not huge) and I love all the vegetarian and dairy-free options. The chicken wrap, lasagna, turkey burger and Korean noodle bowl are all great. And the avocado key lime pie is one of my all-time faves.

Food lacks flavor. Pizzas came out and looked like they had sat under a heat lamp for a while - both were not anywhere close to hot. Walk over to North Italia if you want pizza. Poke was worse than any food truck poke you have ever had. Everything was just uninspired. Been two years since I have been, and definitely will not be going back ever - too many other places with good food in the area.

The self-help ordering system really degrades the overall service level. No one seems like they're 'your' waitperson, extras like water seem to get dropped. Food is the same, service not so much.

True Food Kitchen - El Segundo
Responded on 8 June 2021

Robert, I am sorry that your experience using our online ordering system was not what you thought it would be. Though we encourage guests to use contactless ordering through QR codes, we can still accommodate the more personal hands on approach from our servers to make sure your experience is always the best it can be. See you next time

True Food never disappoints: I love the dishes, very healthy yet tasty. I appreciate that every menu item has the number of calories so I can easily keep the calorie count without guessing. The service as always was very friendly and efficient. We were basically the last table to leave but we were not rushed at all, which was great since I was with friends I hadn't seen since prior to COVID lockdowns and we had a lot of catch up to do.
