Great spot for casual dining. Fresh ingredients with loads of choices for all tastes. Great bartenders ready to mix a nice cocktail. Service is attentive, knowledgeably and friendly.

Our daughter took us to True Green Kitchen. Off hand, it appears to attract heavily of the "green, gluten free crowd". W shared an appetizer of some special salmon, then had grilled trout or tuna wraps. Desert was a "super berry tart" with whipped cream. Everything quite delicious. Satisfactory wine selection

Every category of the menu from sodas and beers to salads and starters, to kids menus and entrees was interesting and delicious. The quinoa burger was superb without buns and the almond butter, strawberry and banana sandwich was a huge hit with the little ones. The watermelon soda was interesting; the curry was tasty; the outdoor seating was comfortable. Definitely... More

I've been here twice, since my step father is Vegan, that's the only reason I'd go to a place like this. If you've seen any of my other restaurant reviews, this place sticks out like a sore thumb. Now I don't mind paying for good food, but this place is just way overpriced. I know it's in Newport Beach where... More

I really enjoyed eating here!! For starters we had the hummus and pita chips, very tasty, it comes with purple onions, olives, feta and cucumbers on top. My daughter does not eat cheese but she worked her way around it. For lunch I had the street tacos with fish!! Awesome!! My 3 year old son had the chicken noodle soup... More

We ordered a salad and the squash pasta to share. They split them in the kitchen, which I appreciated. The squash was good, not mushy. Skip the pomegranate limeade, nothing special.

My son recommended we go here as he is ate here before and thought it was very good. The menu is certainly unique and not something you will see in other restaurants. It is obvious they are trying to differentiate themselves from other restaurants on the coast with very creative dishes. . The decor and ambiance were inviting. We ordered... More

This is normally not the type of place I would dine at for breakfast. But I was in an area that I was unfamiliar with and I saw people walking in so we ventured in. When I looked at the menu I saw a lot of vegan and vegetarian dishes and I made a face. But upon questioning the young... More
