Their food and drinks were awesome! We liked their food so much, we tried to find them in other areas were visiting in CA too. Cute decor. Great service! Wish they would open one up in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida!

I had dinner here and was so happy to find a nice place for a gluten-free meal! I had street tacos with fish. Tasted great! The service was great too.

We are huge fans of True Food Kitchen. They have such a great way of combining flavors, so that healthy, whole food doesn't become boring. It's always just right. If you want a little spicy, you got it. If you want hearty and filling, you got it. If you want clean and light, you got it. Whatever you're looking for,... More

It takes a lot to earn a 5-star review, but True Food Kitchen is worthy of each star! Every aspect of our dinner was outstanding, from the very friendly service, to the varied wine selection, to the decadent desserts, all of our expectations were exceeded. We started dinner with a bottle of Faust Cabernet and 3 small plates; caramelized onion... More

We were attending a conference at the conference center around the corner from the mall and thought-ugh-we will never find good food within walking distance. And then this place appeared! A chain, yes, but healthy and fresh and just what we were wanting! Service and food were outstanding!

To paraphrase the menu, their "anti-inflammatory diet" prompts an inflammatory review: Terrible service: Even though the restaurant was not busy, service was extremely slow. Fifteen minutes after one of our party ordered a Teriyaki Brown Rice Bowl, the server returned to inform her that the restaurant was "out of brown rice". Really, are you joking? A restaurant that runs out... More

I ate here twice during my CA stay. A take-out GF pizza was not good (very small; high-priced; not much sauce or cheese on it). The dine-in dinner was much better-tasting, although still pricey & very small portion of entree & dessert.
