Yummy Healthy Eats!

Loved this place for lunch. They have many great and innovative options! Loved the quinoa patty- Inside out burger with sweet potato has on the side. And the cucumber lemonade was great too. I wish we had one in Seattle!

lovely terrace, interesting drinks ( we started off with ginger margaritas), and a menu full of lovely choices leaving us well nourished and energized. Attentive, caring service, staff who appears proud to be working in this environment.

Very good service and setting for early evening cocktail event for about 20 people on the patio. The snacks were great. Would come back next time.

Went to dinner while here on business. The menu is creative and fun and full of healthy options. My friend is gluten free and was pleased to find lots of choices. We sampled gluten free pita and hummus, as well as the turkey burger and turkey lasagne. All were delicious.

I took my niece to Friday night dinner and we both enjoyed the healthy, scrumptious food served by an energetic, upbeat guy who knew his business but made it personal. The edamame dumplings were to die for, comfort food with bling. We also loved the lemony raw fish appetizer with raddish sprouts to add a bit of bite. Main course... More

Great healthy food at Newport Beach prices. Given the focus on the food, I was hoping for more flavor, but it tasted "healthy", (read- not exciting). Maybe I will try again and order differently, but I thought this would be the place to get a great salad (and I tried 3).

This is one of my favorite restaurants. They have a great variety of menu items, many that are vegetarian or gluten free. Creative entrees like the inside out quinoa sandwich...2 quinoa cakes with hummus, lettuce, tomatoes inside, and served with sautéed kale and sweet potat hash. Everyone in my party enjoyed the food. They also have lots of interesting, healthy... More

It has been a really good restaurant. Surprised last Sunday when we've been there, that for the 3rd season they have just the same meals to offer. The have not updated a single new plate or dessert. The attendants were so uninterested and it did not look clean. Disappointed.

There's not much to say here, folks. This restaurant is the best ever. Organic delishishness. Whenever I am in any city where a True Food is, I eat there, 2-3 times. Best items on the menu? Edamame Dumplings, Squash Cassarole, Fish Tacos, Pomagranet Limeade, Hangover RX.... Just go. Do your body good. Oh and those muffins they make for breakfast,... More

This is one of my wife's and I favorite places to eat. Everything on their menu is locally grown and is all organic. The menu changes with the season which keeps things new and fresh. They do have a few item on the menu that stay all year round. My favorite is the Bison Burger. So good and full of... More
