What a great restaurant. An unexpected location being in the parking lot of Fashion Mall, however it’s an attractively contemporary fit out with a high ceiling industrial feel inside. As you walk in the door you are hit by the refreshing aroma of their juicer station which immediately begins messaging their commitment to fresh and healthy produce; a message which... More

Natural food was never more fun at true food. The service is good and the atmosphere is lively! A great place to stop after shopping.

Lots of vegetarian choices, but good fresh non-veggie stuff too. The drinks are refreshing and unusual. Setting is adjacent to Fashion Island Mall, and reservations are only taken for parties of 8 or more. Friendly and competent service makes it a pleasure to visit

Love this place next to Fashion island Mall. Really healthy menu with lots of choices even for people that don't love so called healthy food. Great service and atmosphere.

Since it opened a few years ago, True Food Kitchen is my "must" stop in Newport Beach. The menu is creative and uses farm-to-table ingredients. Proves that healthy eating need not be dull. The drinks are clever combinations of fruity ingredients. Service is exceptional. My dining companion was stuck in traffic on the 405 and I monopolized a table for... More

When I lived in Orange County I went here all the time. It's easy to find healthy options and the service is always friendly. The edamame dumplings are delicious. It's a great place for lunch or dinner. The last time I went I was there during the busy lunch hour with a group of 10. The waitress did a great... More

True Foods is worth a visit for a health, tasty meal. I had the "INSIDE OUT QUINOA BURGER" - solid. The menu changes a little depending on the season. It has good vegetarian options. Service is superb but you cant book. But if you check in you can shop at nearby Fashion Island and they will SMS text you. I'll... More

This was my first time to a True Food as I'm from the UK but my colleagues had raved about the fresh ingredients and great food. I was disappointed. The fresh non-alcoholic cocktails were gorgeous and the service was excellent. I would recommend to anyone.

Went here yesterday for first time. Yelp and TA were very positive so thought safe to go. Man were we surprised. I had the Huevos Rancheros, Just not good. Thrown together, needed a spoon to eat it and just tasteless. My wife had the fish tacos. Very small and again NO taste. Why people rave about this place I have... More

I had eaten at and enjoyed another True Food Kitchen in Denver CO several months ago on a business trip. So, when I took my family to SoCal on vacation we decided to dine there for lunch. The food is somewhat unique... but I had remembered it being more unique and flavorful. A couple of the dishes were pretty routine... More
