What a great spot! The food, ambience and service were all wonderful. I especially loved that they had an abundance of vegetarian and vegan options. I highly recommend you make reservations in advance! We will definitely be coming back!

We made a reservation for an outdoor table. When we arrived we were told that the outside tables are first come first reserve and that our reservation was only for an inside table. There were several empty outside tables. We were told that we would have to wait 45 minutes for an outdoor table. We didn't see any people waiting for the outside tables. We didn't want to wait so we sat at the bar. The entire time we were at the restaurant there were empty tables outside. Later in the day I received a message from Open Table to tell me that the restaurant canceled our reservation because we didn't show up. What a messed up operation.

Much has change at True Food. The vegan burger was meh. Lots more options for meat eaters but for those that loved TF for their vegan options, it feels to be leaning toward all the others out there trying to please all people. Sad. I loved them. Service was mediocre.

We had reservations, arrived a few minutes early, checked in, but they had an ipad malfunction, so we ended up waiting 30 minutes until they figured out we had not been sat. From that moment on, they tended to us like royalty. They were extremely busy, and one of the dishes came out cold, so they immediately got a new fresh dish and then gave us dessert on the house. Everything was delicious and our waitress was great! The manager came out to make sure we were happy...and they definitely made sure we left happy.

I LOVE TRUE FOOD!! I have Celiacs and this is one of the only restaurants I can eat at that will take celiacs seriously!! I have never gotten sick here, the food is delicious, my boyfriend and family loves it (they do not have any allergies) and I heard their cocktails are to die for! The staff is extremely kind, accommodating to anything asked for, and provide a lot of different options. I would recommend this to anyone. The only issue I had was the noise level (I was by the bar so I was expecting it to be loud) but one customer got very rowdy and nothing seemed to be done, even though they caught attention from across the restaurant....Nothing wrong with the establishment itself but something to keep in mind if you are looking for a quiet restaurant. Overall, 10/10!!
