This is a great restaurant. Environment is really refreshing, great atmosphere and very friendly and efficient staff. I ordered the sea bass which was cooked to perfection. Very fresh, well presented and delicious! Wine menu is good and a great selection. Well worth a visit.

Went in with a moderate sized group so got to sample a number of things. Everything is fresh and the ingredients qualify for very healthy by todays standards. Generally it was all fairly good. We shared humus but I found it to be overly tart and very spicy. I ordered a teriyaki bowel that was a little bland by my... More

I can't wait until they open one near us. It's large and fresh and healthy and just what you need if you've been eating fries and shakes at the beach all day to "detox" your system.

came here for lunch one day with a friend and was pretty impressed what they can make with vegetables and no meat. Our food was well presented and tasted delicious.

Summary: Beautiful, fun and large bar, creative and fun menu, very clean. A hit. Review: The first thing you will notice at this restaurant when you walk in is the interior design and decoration. It's really impressive. Then you see the massive bar. Not just for drinks. For eating and typical bar fare. The next thing you notice is the... More

I have been to other TFK locations and this one did not disappoint. We arrived minutes before closing time, and the service was impeccable. No one made us feel that we were imposing. They didn't run out of anything, it was all delicious. Although I generally hate mall restaurants, this one has a great decor -- you don't sense that... More

We went early at 11:30 to beat the lunch rush. Also for better parking. Expect a wait at normal meal times and get there early to allow for finding parking. My friend ordered the hummus appetizer for her meal. I ordered the chicken salad with dried fruit ingredients and dressing on the side. Meals came within seven minutes. Both were... More

Love the ambiance at True Food! The outdoor patio was the perfect location and had plenty of space, which made it both inviting and relaxing. Their margharita pizza is to die for and their tak on the veggie burger is so creative! The bun is the burger! Definitely recommend sitting on the patio with drinks in hand! Order a few... More

This restaurant tries to focus on sustainable, healthy fare and I like it because it offers choices that you don't normally see on other menus. I have heard some say that it is geared toward vegetarians, and I find that to be more of a misconception---I had a turkey burger the last time I was there and there are numerous... More
