True Food Kitchen - Palo Alto
Amazing food, amazing service!!!
Fantastic food and ambiance. Will come here again!
Very friendly and nice.
We loved the food - it tasted fresh and flavorful. Lots of choices for vegetarians and vegans.
I’m glad I made reservations and would recommend you do too if you’re going on Saturday evening
Great food - freezing inside!!
Very expensive for what you get. I ordered the Fish tacos. $22 for 2 extremely small tacos, small side of beans and a slice of lime that were OK but nothing special. Staff was pleasant but I was very disappointing in quality and price and will not be going here again.
Good food and service was great
I made a reservation for three through Open Table and specifically asked for a table away from the kitchen side, as the hummus blender is VERY loud. We were greeted by a very rude hostess. She was unfriendly and told us to "just wait over there", pointing in the direction behind her. We were then given a table directly opposite the hummus blender. When I asked if we could move our table, the seater told us it would take a few minutes. Ten min later, a table opened up near the exit door. We were able to get that table, but the restaurant is too loud to have a reasonable conversation. Though our server was nice, the food service was extremely slow. Sad, as I used to recommend this restaurant.
I think the "B" team was working yesterday. Service was pretty slow from our server. We order the brussels sprouts to start and they stopped by with cauliflower, we said no, brussels sprouts. Then our brussels sprouts came and then 5 minutes later they tried to bring another order of them. Then they tried to deliver our neighbors lunches to us, we said no not ours. Our correct lunches came, then they tried to deliver a latte to us that we didn't order. I had to ask for an iced tea refill to which it was filled only halfway. I asked for more ice as all the ice was melted and ended up asking for another tea refill. It was just one thing after another and we had to ask for anything we needed. I'm not sure what the deal was, but it was definitely not the norm. I've been dining here since they opened and LOVE it, but yesterday was a challenge here.
The food was fine. The waiter was great and accommodating. The greeting staff could be more polite. Instead of telling us “Stand over there.”, it could be “The hostess will be with you in a couple of minutes, could you wait over there?”.
I had a ginger margarita for a beverage. My daughter had their honey lemonade. Both were refreshing. The cream of tomato soup was made with coconut milk. The Curry Bowl with added chicken was delicious. It was described as spicy. I didn’t find it spicy.
Can’t wait to go back. I am exploring their anti inflammatory food choices. Purchase Dr Weil’s book.
I didn't know what the restaurant's concept was, more clean, organic and plant-based, so without any expectations I was blown away about how tasty and enjoyably delicious everything was, from the tea, to the appetizers, cup of soup, and entree we had. I absolutely recommend this restaurant to anybody looking for a new experience, regardless if you are vegan, vegetarian, or not. Looking forward to visiting again. All the staff were attentive, smiling and making everyone feel welcome.
It’s a very busy Sunday morning. Our table was not the best location(near the entrance) but the service was nice. The waiter, Daniel kept apologizing to us for the entrees were taking much longer to make and in the end, offered a generous discount on the bill as compensation for time lost.
Very good service and food! A little on the pricey side, but always very well prepared.
Really poor service. Drinks take forever. Entrees arrived before starters. Entrees were very cold. Starters were not cooked - specifically the pita bread. Knocked some items off the bill but they need more staff as they are extremely busy. This is like the 3rd time we have experienced this. Won’t be back. Shame as some of the food can be delicious and it is a cool place.
Friendly, perky service. Excellent and fresh food at a reasonable price!
Excellent food and the staff are very customer service focused!
Excellent service, delicious food. Comfortable atmosphere.
Fun. Great food. Noisy.
Service was inconsistent, at times overly attentive then super long delay between courses with no server to be found. Food is good but overly ambitious
Very loud in the restaurant but the wonderful food makes it worth it!
This was my first time for dinner and it was very good as expected. Its good food but very pricey. Crazy crowded and loud always but we did not mind that. Had to wear jacked the whole time as it was cold inside.
Excellent service. Restaurant is a little loud so can be hard to hear at a larger table (we had 6).
True Food Kitchen has the most delicious vegetables and other healthy creations of any restaurant I’ve been to. My family and I come here repeatedly.
The food is fresh and healthy. The flavors are great. Every time I have been to this location they have been consistent with the quality of food and service. I will be back.
Always fresh, always delicious! And healthy too!
We normally ask and sit outside but the weather was too cold and windy the day we were there. We have NEVER had a bad experience at True Food Kitchen. When we have reservations, we are always seated within 5 minutes of our notice to your personal we are there.
The FOOD - again NEVER a bad dish. We enjoy the edamame dumplings so much that we order one order per person at our table.
Was curious to try this restaurant, and while we enjoyed it and had very nice service, the food itself was not not remarkable. In the current fashion for restaurants, the atmosphere is open and energetic (aka, too noisy to have normal conversations). Probably won't return, but glad we found out for ourselves.
I’ve been to True Food multiple times and this by far was my families worst experience. We were there for dinner at 5:30 pm and 4 items we ordered from the menu were not available. That is unacceptable, we almost left but figured anything we ordered would be good. On the 5th try, my son was delivered a raw/rare hamburger when he asked for medium. The server had no personality and was not helpful. I think I’m done with true food. I’m very disappointed as it was my go to as Stanford Mall.
Delicious food in a very large space with loud acoustics.
We had an awesome time! They were slammed but the manager took care of us and we didn’t have to wait too long.
Overall meal is par to fast food. Taste is bit over border for healthy. Chicken is dry like eating paper. Korean Noodle is surprisingly do not get soggy overtime, what this mean? Korean noodle is not chemical induced for texture than to health. Chefs added too much sodium than texture to taste.
Overall, food is so so...
The food was awesome. Although busy, they seated us promptly at our reserved time. Service was a little slow but friendly. Perhaps being NY day, they were backed up in the kitchen or short on wait staff. I would go there again without any hesistation.
The True Food concept is awesome. The food is good. Very good. Service is prompt and friendly without being sugary. I wish, though, they would change the menu more frequently and offer low/medium FODMAP options! Yes! Please.
The food was amazing!!! I’ve get Korean noodles from sweet potato with shiitake and tofu-absolutely amazing!!! I love the selection of healthy choices and seasonal concept! Love the place!
Food was terrible and expensive. Service was slow. Will not go back.
Great food & service!
My food was not as I respected. I request Rear and they brought Done. I think I am going to skip this restaurant in the future.
This is the first time I wasn't 100% impressed either with the food or the service.
The food was okay, not great.
Our waiter was on top of us, and seemed to be rushing us through the meal.
(For example, he asked about dessert while we were still eating.)
We sat at the bar for dinner and had a great experience. The bartender exceeded our expectations with his quick response to our requests. Love True Food!
Love this restaurant. Love the vegan options. Feel so healthy eating everything...so wonderful tasting.
Wish I could come daily. Wish the. Lose level was a little quieter.
