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

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
