Brunch on the Weekend

I have been wanting to try the True Foods Brunch - Sat and Sun 10am-3pm. Three of us finally did. We ordered the Veggie Scramble and the Huevos Rancheros. Two of us enjoyed the veggie scramble and the other one had the Huevos Rancheros. I'm getting that next time, as it looked really good. She... read more

This is a restaurant for people who are concerned about the type of food they eat. Seems mostly for vegetarians, vegans, those avoiding carbs, sugars & most types of foods you should avoid. In other words this is a healthy restaurant concerned with giving you good, healthy, fresh food & ingredients. They have ample foods and styles of food prepared... More

Unique, fresh cuisine and awesome martinis. Lunch time is very busy with 30+ minute waits. Recommend late lunch after 1:30 to minimize the hassle. The crudite bowl is awesome.

Ate lunch here on a bustling Saturday and the food was delicious. So many great healthy choices but everything still looked amazing. We had the kale & avocado dip with tasty fresh made pita chips, red chili shrimp, and bison burger. Everything exceeded our expectations.

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
