The menu is simple, but gives you a handful of great choices. While a quinoa teriyaki bowl might sound somewhat plain, it was delicious! Every vegetable was cooked perfectly and the blends of the tastes were wonderful. The custom limeade was so refreshing. We had friendly service from the host stand until checking out, great restaurant!

Dining during COVID is very different. The staff all wear masks. Servers wear gloves to bring your food. Menus are all disposable paper and only about half of the full menu is available. With the 50% capacity limit, the noise level is significantly lower than usual. We’ve dined there in the past and it was very loud and over-stimulating. So this was a nice change. There also wasn’t the usual long wait for a table because there are fewer patrons in general at the moment. It’s pricey but you generally get what you pay for as the food is always delicious.

My only complaint this time is that the kitchen messed up my order and put mozzarella cheese on my flatbread even though I had specified a food allergy to cow’s milk based dairy. Luckily I noticed the cheese on there before I ate any. It took awhile to get the waiter back to the table and have it corrected, but they remade my order correctly the second time.

Hi Jenn- Thank you for the feedback! I apologize your flatbread wasn't made properly the first time, but I am glad we were able to remake for you! We truly appreciate your loyalty to True, and we look forward to having you back in again soon!

The restaurant was hot and humid, no ac was on bc the the outside doors were open. The server was wearing wet gloves, the spacing out of tables wasn’t optimal because there was empty space not being used. The food was okay, nothing special.

Hello- Thank you for the feedback. I apologize the temperature in the restaurant was not to your liking. We like to leave the doors open to limit the number of high-frequency contact areas. We also do the table spacing to abide by the 6ft spacing requirements, and to ensure the safety of our guests and staff! We are hoping to get back to normal soon, and we hope you will join us again!

It was great to return to True Food Kitchen in the Mosaic District. We sat out on the covered patio which included safe distancing between tables. I was so happy to see the grilled salmon back on the menu, and it went down well with a Bourbon and Peach cocktail. The quinoa brownie sunday was an interesting and tasteful dessert as well. We'll be back!

Service was great; we had a friendly and informative server, and food came out in a timely manner. The edamame dumplings are to die for, and the butternut squash pizza was delicious. We tried several other entrees, and none failed to deliver! I don't always do well at places with all organic and farm to table ingredients because I worry I won't know what I'm ordering (let's face it, the ingredients on the menus often need to be googled if that's not your typical dietary choice), but there was little to no struggle here. Also, if you've never had an oat milk cappucino, you're missing out!

My husband and I frequent this location since there are a challenge finding vegan restaurants in the area, that has an open kitchen. The experience literally left a bad taste in our mouth and the one of the people sitting around us when I found 5 long pieces of long hair in our pizza. The women sitting next to me found hair in her Detox Retox Mimosa and the couple to the right of us were freaked out. We had already complained about the cleanliness of our dishes and how there was still food on our silverware, and they were dirty. The water was the only thing I felt ok with, but this place really needs some housekeeping. We are in the middle of a coronavirus, and not keeping up with housekeeping and cleanliness is the last thing a restaurant should have at this time. We used to love this place, but there needs to be a revamp or new training. I do not suggest it here. This experience really left a bad taste in our mouths

Though we had reservations, our table of three was placed next to the kitchen and cleaning area. The restaurant noise level was compounded by the kitchen noise.
The menu was outstanding and the wait staff delightful. Have to weigh the wonderful menu against the noise level and possible poor seating when making reservations for a business-oriented meeting.
