I have tried many dishes on their menu and always come back to my favorite. Many of the staff agree that the Bison Burger with both sides; Chopped Kale Salad and Sweet Potato Hash, rates as one of the top dishes on the menu.

True Food was a true find! Sustainable, organic, yummy. I had the Quinoa burger. It's called that because the bun is made of quinoa! It was very tasty if a bit dry. The portion was small for the price, and I guess that was the healthier way to eat. There are meat options, so food to fit most preferences. The... More

Okay, this has to be one of my favorite restaurants. Great, healthy, delicious food at reasonable prices! Took my daughter for lunch, and we went back the next night for dinner! Love the hummus with gluten free, hot pita! Enjoyed sitting outside both times. In the evening they have a fire and heaters. With all the choices in Newport and... More

Great looking restaurant, opted to sit outside, even though it was quite hot still. Went with some friends for a bday lunch. Ordered a couple of the salads to try. No real depth of flavor, ordering with grilled chicken was better flavor. Had some cocktails which were very yummy. I would go back for the drinks and snacks.

Loved everything - healthy dining that doesn't feel like it. Try the edame stuffed dumplings - incredible.

We went to this venue several times, as we like well prepared healthy food. The restaurant also caters to people who have gluten intolerance( two family members are affected.). But even for the omnivorous, all-tolerant this restaurant delivers. If you like light, non-greasy, nutritious food, you will love having a meal there. The place is bright, has pleasant outdoor sitting,... More

Do not try a turkey burger here. It was dryer then the frozen box it came in. This was truly the poorest burger I have ever had. They should go down the street to Ruby's and get a goog burger.

I'm familiar with Dr. Weil so I wanted to try his restaurant while on a recent trip. I am gluten intolerant and was pleased to see GF foods clearly marked on the menu. Our waiter was very informative, professional and thoroughly familiar with the menu. I found the prices to be reasonable. I had the Inside Out burger-two quinoa patties... More

I have to confess that I was very disappointed in True Food. This restaurant has been 'talked up' by many of our family friends as "the" place to go for tasty, natural offerings. So at the start of summer, we finally grabbed some friends and went to try it. The owner-chef is a strong proponent of "food as medicine" and... More

I’d never heard of True Food Kitchen until my girlfriend and I headed to the restaurant for brunch followed by a stroll through Fashion Island. The inside of the restaurant is attractive in a clean, simple sort of way, with a large bar in the middle. There’s a large patio area, too, which is where we were seated. My girlfriend... More
