True Food Kitchen - Chicago
True Food Kitchen was phenomenal! I arrived early for my 12:30 reservation. The place was crowded but there were some tables available as it’s a very large place. They seemed willing to seat me but I opted to have a hot tea at the bar. The bar service was excellent and the adaptogenic tea was delicious. My party of two was seated in a back table with a friendly server and a little less noise. I ordered the seasonal salad which was out of this world. Very fresh ingredients and amazing flavor combinations. I will dream of this salad for a long time! Can’t wait to return when I’m back in Chicago!
Great food and amazing atmosphere!
Fresh delicious food. Choice range was fantastic - from Vegan options to steak options. Super service. Modern friendly environment.
Absolutely fantastic. There is something (and great food) for everyone, whether you are plant based, GF, want a grass fed burger or a snack, it’s all there. This place proves finally that healthy, vegan, GF (with added fish and meat options) don’t need to be an almost take out/office lunch informal menu place, and instead can be beautiful , cozy, modern and refined enough for a nice dinner with candles. Wish we had them in NYC...:(
Great happy hour!!
Always a great meal and exceptional service. Favorites are ancient grains bowl and chicken wrap!
Good food. Especially liked the chopped salad with its large number of diverse ingredients and champagne vinaigrette. Sea bass also good and, like the chopped salad, accompanied by a wade variety of goodies-farro, baby boy choy, citrus-ed mushrooms, etc.
The waiter did his job efficiently and competently, but not very enthusiastically. He didn’t make much of an attempt at smiling or repartee.
Loud! That was the hardest part. Couldn’t have a comfortable conversation. And the bass in the background music at times felt like it was penetrating my skull. Painful.
Healthy food should taste good and True Food makes that happen.
everything we ordered we liked, would def return, if i lived near by i would eat here frequently....they claim they cook healthy and use healthy ingredients and post the calories for everything....all restaurants should be this way..............
Thank you for the positive review!
The food was fabulous! Perfect restaurant if you have dietary restrictions or just prefer clean eating. Definitely would come here again.
Thank you Dena!
Great food with relaxed but attentive service!
The beet cocktail was amazing, and the pumpkin soup was fantastic
Great! Thanks. Wonderful servers
Nothing new to say. Always good.
Nice place, always feel welcome
Cant wait until the Oakbrook location opens in November! Our server was fantastic and made our short time with our friend from overseas special.
We are so glad to hear you had such a great experience thank you for sharing Kimberly!
Food was very good. All of our party of five enjoyed their meals. Service was slow, although our server was very friendly.
Food was great! Service was nice. They ran out of chopsticks, though.
I’ve only eaten here twice, but both times I’ve realized after I’ve eaten that my meal was missing ingredients! Disappointing considering the entree prices. Drinks were good. Service was fine - very slow towards end.
Sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. We would like nothing more than an opportunity to make this up to you.
You have to go. I'll be back. You have to go. I'll be back. You have to go. I'll be back. You have to go. I'll be back.
Wow, Thank you Michael! We are excited to hear you had such a great experience!
This is a great lunch spot, but the restaurant wasn't busy and the server wasn't very attentive for the lunch hour.
Thank you Amber
We had a fabulous experience from start to finish. Two of us were ‘first time diners’ at True Food and we really enjoyed our the entire evening. Nicole, our server, was spectacular and brought the whole experience to life. Her recommendations were spot on, and her service was impeccable. We were all out of towers and she was sure to let us know where the closest location was in our respective parts of the country. Highly recommend!
Thank you Michelle. We think Nicole is amazing and excited to hear you feel the same.
Great time at true food kitchen with my sister. Food was delicious.
In my opinion, the best healthy food restaurant in River North. The taste, quality, and selection rival any traditional restaurant. Their menu is diverse and not limited to salads or grain bowls (although they have both, and are excellent). It was a bit noisy and the service was a bit slow, but it was the height of the lunch hour. I would definitely choose to dine there anytime.
Amazing food and wonder service! I will be back!!!
Perfect. All five stars.
Second visit in the same weekend! Love the food.
We are excited to hear you enjoyed the restaurant so much! Thank for the great feedback!
The food and cocktails were ok, however the wait time between ordering and receiving our food and our drinks was extremely long (we suspect our server forgot to enter it into the system). Our server also did not check in with us at all until it was time for us to ask for the bill.
We are sorry to hear you did have a great experience. I would like to find away to make this up to you.
Outstanding place! The decor, the service and the food were all very good. Visiting from out of town and needed some healthier options after too much fun the night before. The medicine man drink was delicious. Loved it. Going back a second time before we head home.
Food was delicious. Non-alcoholic drinks, too!
Thank you Sara!
As always, True Food reigns on the food. It is positively delish! This being one of our favorite spots was a bit tainted by the closeness of the tables. Cozy is one thing, but this was too close. Our neighbors server had no awareness of his proximity. It was uncomfortable.
Thank you for your feedback, it is important in our quest for constant improvement!
I love the delicious healthy allergen friendly options!
Thank you Loris!
Lovely great fall menu. I’m a devotee.
Though your stated open time is 11am daily, I arrived , for an 11:30 reservation and yourhostesz seated me and the waitress came right over.
Lunch was wonderful and my two companions who had never been to a True Food loved it. One went so far to say she would be looking for thewhen she travels.
I was excited for the fall menu - I LOVE your Brussel Sprouts (I did share).
To end the meal I ordered the floorless chocolate cake. Outstanding.
It was a great meal with good friends.
Thank you for the experience.
We are happy you had such a great time. Thank you for sharing your experience with us!
Came in for the fall menu and was delighted with the offerings! I love pumpkin squash soup and this one is amazing! Also had the Unbeetable burger and loved it! I have a few allergies and it was no problem for the staff. They made me feel welcomed and appreciated. Our server was delightful! Even the manager came by to see how we were. Only slip up was the soup was supposed to be delivered before our entree and it wasn't.
Will definitely come back!
This restaurant always delivers healthy, tasty food at a reasonable price. The squash soup was especially delicious and paired well with the beet and goat cheese flatbread for a light supper.
Healthy, flavorful food. Hands down one of the better restaurants for those parties that have mixed dietary needs. Great service without feeling rushed or feeling like you’ve been waiting either.
Enjoyed the food and drinks. Service was good. Environment was nice for sitting outside.
Amazing healthy food!!!!
