“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

sometimes places like this don't live up to the chef's reputation, however this was completely the other way around.Easy to find and in historic district of Montgomery. Menu was nicely done with enough options and specials. Shrimp and oyster risotto was amazing. Very nice wine selection and reasonable prices. What more do you want.

“Thank You Tripadvisor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We were traveling between Florida and South Carolina. While on the interstate, we pulled up tripadvisor on our cell phones and used the "near me" function. Since we were looking for a meal on a Sunday, we had to thumb through a few restaurants. Thankfully, we chose "True" - a lovely spot in a gentrified and historic neighborhood. Be aware that you will likely a less appealing area on the way there. That said, the shopping center and old homes which abuts "True", is very nice. This restaurant is all creams and whites. While fair-sized, there are high ceilings and loads of curtains which provide privacy and curtail your fellow diners conversation. The staff were friendly and professional. My husband had the french toast with pineapple, cream cheese and pecans. It was wonderful. I had a catfish and shrimp dish which included stone ground yellow grits which was much like polenta. I was struck with how fresh the ingredients were. The chef, whose last name is True, uses local farms when possible. Lastly, I was surprised at how reasonably priced the food was. This is a terrific restaurant and when passing through Montgomery - I will make it a regular stop.

“a welcome addition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

A quiet mid-week evening at a window table to celebrate the holidays; two of us talking and sharing TRUE's delicious fare: champagne, lightly crusted seared grouper over mushrooms & Brussels sprouts, a simple shared salad, shared stick-toffee pudding, & coffee. With friendly and attentive service from Griffin, and a table visit from Chef True. Food is fresh & perfectly prepared & presented. Lots of attention to subtle flavor details. Well worth the price. A welcome addition to Montgomery's restaurant scene. Hoping this one lasts.

“No more Roux”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Roux restaurant in Montgomery is no longer exists. It is now a restaurant called TRUE. (The Chef/owner's last name). The ambiance is great, as well as the food. We had a great experience all around! The waitstaff was beyond helpful and attentive. Everything from the apps to the main course and dessert were incredible. I would definitely recomend this to anyone visiting Montgomery!

“true left me a little blue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

went there fro my son's 25th birthday on friday 11/9,service was good and food was above average tried chicken and waffles, (not a good dinner selection), the waffle was cold, dry and the syrup would have better if just plain maple instead of a cinnamon concoction, my wife's filet was above average, my son's bouilbousse was excellent and by far the best entree, could have done with china instead of the wooden butcher block plates that freeze your food and most modern chefs seem to love, they ran my credit card twice, claiming it did'nt go through the first time, after checking with my bank 3 days later,they were paid twice,8 days later and three calls i'm still waiting for my reimbursement.after all that i'm willing to give the resturant another try but will drop cash only on my revisit
