Normally love our experience but not the usual 5 star food. The chopped salad I look forward to every fall really fell short. Not chopped at all and skimpy amount of dressing. ( understand it’s a VERY difficult time for all restaurants during this time) unfortunately we will probably wait to visit till after the pandemic, not willing to pay the price for a scaled down version.

Responded on November 10, 2020

Hi Donna- I apologize your chopped salad was not what you have had in the past. I have passed your feedback along to our chef team. Please let us know the next time you are in if the salad is not what you remember, and we would be more than happy to replace it for you! We hope to see you soon!

Had to wait 30 min even though we made reservations. The hostess said reservations don’t count when you request an outdoor table. Why don’t you tell customers that when they book the reservation or when you constantly spam them with texts that they’re now on the waiting list? (We were added to the waiting list 30 minutes AFTER checking in with the hostess.) You would think that with COVID, True Kitchen could figure out how to make this work when other restaurants seem to. Waiter was great. Probably the best part of our visit. We’ve been here many times before. This was the worst visit by far.

Thank you for the feedback, our reservation system allows for Patio Requests when you book, and we do call all reservations with a Patio Request to inform them of the first come, first serve policy for our patio seating. I apologize your visit was not up to par. Please reach out to me at your earliest convenience, as I would love to invite you back in as my personal guest so we can improve on your last visit: 5713261616. Thanks again for the feedback!

All was great but our waitress who was very nice was a flake. She didn’t tell us to order in the app. She didn’t ask or offer milk and sugar and took forever to bring them. All this resulted in her making many many slow and unnecessary trips to our table. The food was great. The heaters and shelter outside were terrific. I’ll definitely come back but I hope to have a different waitress or that she’s more on the ball.

The food is so delicious. The menu was more limited than before. I’m sure it has to do with covid, so I’m not surprised. The only thing is that I wish the waitress would have explained how the ordering from your table while using your phone worked. It was so confusing and our order got messed up. If they just would have explained it to us, it is a very cool way of doing it. I just don’t like having to deal with trying to figure something out when all it would take is a quick explanation. But the amazing food made up for any negative. Best soup and pizza around!!!

It was a last minute decision for dinner. Also preferred outside but was raining. Indoors not so bad. Appropriately social distanced. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. She was very helpful and had an interesting personality which added to the dining experience in a positive way. The food was delicious. The butternut squash soup was tasty - a slight sweetness to it but good. Tried a new starter dish called the “Jackfruit Lettuce Wraps” - it sounded old, however I was pleasantly surprised. It tasted so fresh and flavorful. My go to food is the spaghetti squash, which I add jalapeños, was delicious as well. Lastly had the flourless chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream. A bit too sweet for me but if you have a sweet tooth you will definitely enjoy it! The ice cream on top helps to tone down the sweetness. Overall a great and fresh meal on a rainy day made it an awesome night!

I always enjoy True Foods. I ordered the seasonal salad topped with grilled chicken, which was excellent. The restaurant has added many no contact features since Covid-19. But it seemed that the no contact protocols minimized how often a server checked on us. We wanted to order cappucino at the end of the meal and we were hard pressed to find any staff to order from. It took us about 5 minutes to flag someone down. It seemed that waitstaff was not looking around to make eye contact with customers as they would have pre-pandemic. All-in-all it was a nice experience but I would recommend that management check on tables if waitstaff cannot.

Unfortunately, even with a reservation, they were unable to sit us outside, as we had requested. That being said, the inside was very open and wide, and the social distancing in between tables was good. The food was wonderful, vegan-friendly, and our waitress was kind, quick, and hilarious. We got the prickly pear mimosa and I can honestly say it's in my top 5 favorite cocktails ever!
