I joined my husband and his colleagues for dinner at True. Very trendy, beautiful atmosphere, loved the classy and elegant decor.... and the staff were very personable without being intrusive. Loved our head server, he described the dishes well and always observed who needed something before we ever asked. More water- check, more coffee- check, fresh bread- check, it was... More

Stopped by for happy hour and then stayed for dinner. The atmosphere was stunning but we found our food subpar. The pimento cheese appetizer was our favorite. I order a cheeseburger that could have used some extra flavor. My mom got the pork schnitzel. The schnitzel needed some gravy or potatoes. The meat was only accompanied by some house greens... More

The ambience and service are nice, but True is very overpriced and overrated given the experience we had. We were greeted and promptly shown to a nice two-top next to the front window. Our server shows up very quickly and gets a glass of wine to us almost immediately. A good start. They have an extensive wine list (much larger... More

The menus and flare of the former owner, James Beard Award Nominee Weslely True, have sadly gone. It seemed to happen overnight. True is fine for ttose who have a taste for Kudzu pasta or deep fried fish. At least the beer is still interesting. But The days of delicate tomato-mint Parmesan and bass glazes bass, glazed in miso, mushrooms... More

I doubt if I would ever go back and I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Was there with a group, service was kind of slow. It did appear to be pretty clean though. Not a good place for children though. Like I said I think I would ever go there again even if the meal was free. My first... More

My husband and I were in Montgomery for the Camellia Bowl! The next morning we decided to find a place for Sunday brunch. We found "True" on Trip Advisor and decided to try it as it was rated #1 in Montgomery. We were not disappointed. Our server, Sam, made some excellent suggestions. My husband loved the mussels and we both... More

Read the reviews so decided to go. The drive to the restaurant was not reassuring but once we arrived it was great. I ordered the mussel. my wife and I ordered the shrimp and grits. I usually don't order that plate but since it had tomatoes I decided to give a try. It was excellent.

TRUE-ly Delightful! My wife and I had dinner at True in September - we arrived a little early and had an enjoyable half hour at the bar before being seated at a semi-booth table - lots of activity on a Friday nite with a range of dress from jeans and shorts to tuxs and formal gowns - interesting mix of...

Five of us decided to try True. Staff was very nice. Our waiter took our drink order immediately but after that the time between ordering, getting our orders and finally needing to ask for the check was way too long for my liking. The food was delicious. It was suggested to try the crawfish beignets and they lived up to... More

We started at an outside table and it started to sprinkle. The wait staff grabbed all our stuff and moved it inside for us. They gave us a great window table. I ordered the BBQ pulled pork tacos and fries. Very good. I was only drinking water, but my ice never had a chance to get dry. I'd recommend the... More
