Food and service was wonderful but it was cold in every part of the restaurant. The pizza is delicious with lots of interesting toppings. Need to close the doors and put some heat on when it is 50 outside

This has become a favorite when I'm in Sth California. The food is healthy and clean and yet, abundantly tasty. Not just for health nuts, any foodie would enjoy too. Tonight we did fish tacos, Italian sausage lasagne and apple crisp. All where amazingly tasty and with complexity of flavors coming through. Also had a ginger pomegranate mule that was... More

Always enjoy my dining experience at True food Kitchen. They change their menu depending on the season which I like. Their chopped salad or edamame wontons are amazing as well as their main entree dishes, gf terrayki chicken bowl etc. (menu is seasonal).

This is a funky, and super healthy restaurant with epic curry dishes and spa type recipes for people that love healthy and natural food. There may be a bit of a wait but it is worth it and makes for a great brunch or lunch.

I ate here 2 nights in a row while on business. The food was not only delicious but it was beautiful. The prices were amazing for FRESH, real food, prepared to order. The staff was kind and courteous. One night the waitress suggested I add salmon to the seasonal salad, WOW, it was wonderful. The flavors of my two meals... More

A very unique place located in the Fashion Island Mall! We chose the Chioggia Beet Bruschetta and the Mediterranean Quinoa Salad, which were both excellent. There are lots of Vegan Dishes (based on Plant Food), but also some Fish and Meat Choices. Overall a great experience and I am looking forward to visiting the newly opened Chicago Location!

Have tried several outlets in different states and found this one to be equally good. I love the alfresco dining and the fire pit. The only negative observation here was the attitude of the door staff.

Great place Recommended by a local. Had the Thai noodle bowl (no add-ins). Excellent flavors and equal ratio noodle to vegetables. Reasonably priced and they had a Sangiovese wine by the glass. HUGE plus for me.

The name of this restaurant says it all...TRUE, authentic, organic, natural, delicious food! Such a lovely patio and interesting restaurant with great service and reasonable prices. And, don't forget to visit the bathroom...the chalk board in the hallway is a must-read!

I like the menu items and the support for healthy eating. I found it to be a bit cold and impersonal. Maybe i noticed it more because i was dining early and alone. There were many wait staff who seemed to be busily interacting among themselves. I ve had the salmon, kale, soups, all which were satisfying. Parking can be... More
