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

My husband and I are vegan and vegetarian so we researched our restaurants before our vacation to Las Vegas and Newport Beach. True Food looked to be right up our alley! However, when we arrived there at 7pm on a Friday night (August 29th) we were advised by an apparent employee standing outside that the restaurant was closed and would... More

Drove down to this venue from Huntington Beach based on tripadvisor reviews and attractive menu. Preferred choice was not suitable as cooked in shellfish broth and could not be done without, so opted for the rice bowl with tofu. Actually had something very similar from wholefoods last week and this meal was on a par with that. Dish came out... More

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
