My husband and I visited both the Biltmore and Scottsdale locations so we got a sense of the food while visiting the Phoenix area. We wandered upon the Biltmore location trying to find a place to eat for lunch not knowing anything about the restaurant before dining there. I had no idea that the Dr. Weil who speaks about nutrition also helped create this restaurant concept.
-The restaurant focuses on healthy food using better ingredients. It's sometimes difficult to find healthy food while dining out but this restaurant manages to focus on it and does a pretty good job
- Both restaurants were clean with an open kitchen. In fact, at the Biltmore location the employees were making pasta out in the open which was nice to see. However, the outdoor seating at the Scottsdale location was more relaxing and a better option if you are trying to choose between the two locations
- The food was fresh, flavorful, seasonal, and different from most casual restaurants. For example, with the turkey burger you had the choice of side items and one was a sweet potato hash that was very good. We also ordered the tuna sliders that tasted fresh, a smoothie drink, a spicyThai soup that good but very spicy, and the squash spaghetti casserole that was good but did not live up to the reviews online
- The service was good at both restaurants
- They have a brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert menu. I wanted to go back to try the brunch menu because several items looked appealing on it
- It's a little more expensive than other casual restaurants but you are also paying for the unique, seasonal ingredients. I wouldn't let that deter you from trying it.
-I wished they had more locations

This is an awesome restaurant for any foodie. We loved the open kitchen. When we arrived around 7pm on a Friday we were told there was a 25-30 min wait but were seated within 5 minutes. This location is in the Biltmore shopping center, so there is plenty to do if you have to wait a while. However the food is definitely worth the wait. We ordered the sea bass and bison burger. The sea bass was delicious, bison burger was so tender. For desert we shared the olive oil cake and it was good. The nice part is that the food that is prepared here has been grown locally and organic. The kale aid drink was refreshing as well. This is food that will heal you from the inside out, it's that good for your body & soul!

I love True Foods. They have the best hummus! The menu is always changing, so you will never get bored. However if you go looking for that one dish that you loved and it is gone that is disappointing!

Take it from a juicer this place is the bomb!! Great fresh juice drinks and a very clean and healthy menu. We had the lentil soup and the kale salad. The kale salad was unbelievable as its only prep was a chop and a maceration in fresh lemon juice followed by a simple addition of chili flakes, parmesan and olive oil and was this ever divine! The lentil soup was hardy healthy and filling. The prices are good and the decor and service are top notch!

Great clientele a very diverse and friendly crowd.
