Freshest ingredients; clean and distinct flavors; creative combinations of herbs and spices!
We enjoyed our dumplings, ancient grains, beetburger and squash cake. Our server, Alexis was very cordial, energetic, and helpful with her suggestions. My only complaint is that someone cancelled our reservation! We had a problem here before when they reported us as a no show. They need to get their act together regarding my receiving my Open Table points.
A girls night out! Great service, great food!
Good food and healthy options. Great cocktails too. Try the lasagna or spaghetti squash casserole. Yummy
We're so glad you enjoyed your meal! See you soon!
A qualified yes. If they are hard of hearing no. It was very difficult to hold a conversation even though it was not at full capacity.
Winnie thank you for the feedback and we hope to have you in again soon!
Amazing meal! Love the ancient grains bowl. Never disappoints 😁
Pam thank you so much for the review!! We hope to see you again soon!
Lunch was great! Had the new immunity bowl..great broth mushrooms perfectly cooked! Brussels sprouts were delicious as well. Mustard dressing was perfect!
Matt T. was one of THE BEST SERVERS we've ever had. Seriously deep knowledge of the menu, quickly and effectively walked our group through it. Perfectly attentive throughout the evening. His service and attitude made a good night at True Food Kitchen an AWESOME night.
Thank you so much Robin! Matt will be so happy to hear you were so pleased! We so appreciate him and are glad that you do too, thanks again!
The food is incredibly fresh, creative, and healthy. The flavors are outstanding and the menu has a lot of variety. Highly recommend!
Alison thank you for taking the time to review us, we so appreciate it! Hope to have you back in soon!
Very accommodating and efficient for a group of 9. 🙂
Becky thank you for the feedback! Hope to see you in again soon!
Great, healthy food and the mimosa's are delicious!
Thank you so much Britt! We love the mimosa's too - hope to see you again this weekend!
We’ve visited the restaurant numerous times. The last visit was the first time we heard everything in the restaurant has some sorts of salt (sea salt). Previous visits we asked the server no salt on the food we ordered no server ever said there’re some salt added in the food already. Therefore, we were under impression we had eaten food without salt. My husband had chronic kidney disease in addition to high blood pressure and diabetes Ed, we were under impression the restaurant serves healthy food.
Other than salt, we really enjoy the food. But, now we may not visit the restaurant any more.
Hi Amy, I'm sorry to hear about your husband's condition. While some of our recipes do contain salt, we are able to prepare dishes that do not contain salt - I am sorry that you received mixed answers on this. Our Seabass entree with curry broth and our ancient grain bowl are a few of the delicious menu options we can offer you with zero salt added and we would love to have you back in to try both of them. Please ask for me, Amanda, and I'd love to meet you on your next visit. Thank you!
Love the food. However Everytime I go, service is getting slower and slower! 10 minutes to be greeted.
20 minutes for your first cocktail...
Appitizer comes before the drink, etc. It gets old.
Good Morning, I am very sorry for this. I have addressed time standards and staffing levels for this team and the General Manager is 100% aware. She owes you a round of drinks and a couple appetizers on your next visit. I hope you forgive us and come back. My name is Nico Solomon and I am the Regional Director. Let the GM, Amanda Crammer know I sent this to you. Open Table does not allow us to post phone numbers or emails. Thank you!
I love this place & the cauliflower polenta which I ordered but was quite disappointed with the shrimp...fishy & rubbery. I hope it is a fluke but will probably opt for a different protein next time.
Thank you for the feedback on the shrimp you received. We have shared this feedback with our team and hope to see you in again soon.
The food was fresh, healthy and most importantly delicious! I’m looking forward to a return visit. Make reservations even for lunch because it can get crowded.
Thank you Matt for the review and the advice! Hope to see you again soon!
Celebrating friends birthday
Tell your friend happy belated birthday from TFK!! And we're glad you had a great time!
Quieter night there than normal. Had delicious fish tacos. Service was extra good tonight. They gave us Pie for our birthdays.
Barbara thank you for taking the time to write this review and happy belated birthday!!
Food at True Food Kitchen is always delicious. Food came out super fast. My friend and I wanted to share 2 things, so we loved how they split the dishes for us. We had the fish tacos (the umami sauce and the crema were so tasty!) and the ancient grains with shrimp. The server, Marcello, was super friendly and always made sure we were topped off on our beverages.
Rosie thank you so much for the Review! Marcello is a standout member of our team and we so appreciate his positive attitude and presence, we're glad to hear you had such a wonderful experience and will share this review with him! Thanks again!
I felt as we were many of the anonymous clients for a Sunday lunch. We were sat in the outside part of the restaurant and it was a bit cold. Despite having reservation we were not asked for our preference. Food came pretty quick and was good. But we sat without cutlery for 5 minutes. Had to ask twice for it!!! I think we were served by 5 different people with nobody really taking much care - that was my experience.
Hi MichalW, I have addressed all of this with the General Manager, Amanda Crammer. This is not acceptable and I am truly sorry as this is not how we run our restaurants. I do hope you forgive us and come back to see that this is not us. Ask for Amanda and let her know you got this response from me and we will start you out with a couple of delicious appetizers. Again, I am sorry but do appreciate the review as we always want to exceed our guest's expectations. Sincerely, Nico Solomon RD
Top of my list of favorite places to dine. Have tried several dishes and yet have not been disappointed. Great food with several selections. Great service.
Thanks so much for the awesome review! Hope to see you again soon!
Always healthy and creative food dishes. A little noisy on the inside but the outside patio was pleasant.
Lynn thank you for the review and feedback! Hope to see you soon!
Check your utensils - we had to replace one of the forks at our table.
Coffee is on the weak side.
Service is good and food is expected.
Thank you so much for the valuable feedback and review!
The food was great and the service good. I was really happy we sat on the patio it much quieter then inside. We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much Taja and please say hi the next time you're in!
Appetizers were great, tomato soup really tasty, honey lemonade drink fantastic.
My entree $30Sea Bass was way overcooked and dry, I should have sent it back, but didn't have time to wait.
My wife had the fish taco's and they were wonderful !
Ronald thank you for the feedback and review, please say hi the next time that you're in!
Amazing, flavorful healthy food and drink! A family favorite.
Thank you so much for the awesome review! See you soon!
Love this place for lunch and dinner. Sitting at the patio is easy to chat with my friends, because of the noise level inside. Servers are very friendly and helpful.
Thank you for the review and hope to see you back soon!
You need to figure you how to use Open Table more effectively, and then train your greet staff what to do. We had a reservation and arrived 20 min early. We were told we would have to wait. So I checked the Open Table app and there were still reservation openings at that moment (within 5 min). The girls at the door were befuddled about what to do. We were eventually seated and had a great meal, but there were many empty tables as we were seated. With plenty of wait staff.
We came twice on the same weekend. Same thing happened the second day
We enjoyed the restaurant and especially the food choices. Wait staff was great both times. The Walnut Creek location is loud, but tolerable. The great food overshadows the other flaws. Still a fan. Just train your staff how to understand and use Open Table.
Dave thank you for the feedback and your patience while we work through a completely new host team. We so appreciate your patronage and are so thrilled that you love the food as much as we do. Thank you again and hope to see you soon!
It was great! We ordered the avocado toast and the American scramble and both were amazing. And our waiter was on it and we got served really fast. They all took good care of us. Great mimosas and blueberry muffins. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for the lovely review!! We appreciate you and hope to see you soon!
We had a reservation and were seated fairly promptly. The noise level in the restaurant was absurdly loud. We requested to be seated on the patio and waited a few minutes for an available table. We were seated at/near the patio entrance and it was freezing cold. Our server came to our table a total of about four times. Our drinks were delivered approx. 20 mins after we ordered them. Once we ordered our dinner we waited OVER AN HOUR TO RECEIVE OUR FOOD. Someone who did not identify herself came to our table and asked how we were doing. We told her we had been waiting an hour for our food. She stated she would adjust our bill to reflect our extensive wait. We assumed she was a manager but honestly don’t know. My protein style burger arrived raw in the middle. It appeared to be cooked but when I cut it open it was bloody raw. The side cucumber salad was delicious. My date’s salmon was unremarkable. When our server finally showed up with our bill there was no adjustment to the charges for our extended wait. Our entire party was too weary, cold & tired. We paid out bill. Left a decent tip. And will never return. Awful experience.

Always my favorite place! Great vibe and the staff is always super friendly, helpful and accommodating. The food is amazing and I love the new additions to the menu!
Shaina thank you so much for the awesome review!! We hope to see you in again soon!
Noise level was over 90db. Thats a level in a work place hearing protection is required. There were only about 25 customer in restaurant, as lunch crowd filled was difficult to have a conversation across the table. Would not come back, poor design all hard surfaces.

Really good healthy food.
Thank you so much! We love the food too :)
Food was wonderful. Service was great despite busy restaurant.
A bit too cold sitting outside in the evening
We appreciate the feedback and thank you for being such a loyal patron!!
The appetizers were good. But the entrees were awful.
Hi, I recently left you a private message and would love to discuss your recent experience with us. Thank you for the feedback
We go lots and really enjoy the healthy great food!
We're so happy you enjoyed the food! The Winter menu is still live through March and then you have to come try our amazing Spring Menu!
It was Valentine's day and pretty busy so didn't expect perfect service but..
Drinks came out slow- no big deal.
The 3 of us waited 50
Minutes before we got our spaghetti squash casserole appetizer, and it was not warm. then another 15 minutes for our food which we ordered at the same time an hour and 5 minutes earlier. Had to go get someone to refill water glasses.

I could eat here weekly!!!
We would love to see you weekly! Please say hi on your next visit!
The service and food has steadily declined since True Food opened in WC. It was amazing the first year, but now, you just never know what you are going to get. The quality of the food is a bit more reliable than the service which tends to be slow.
I've just left you a private message and would love to connect to discuss your feedback. Thank you!
Good, healthy food in a trendy space. The problem is the acoustics - the large space has high ceiling and it’s simply so loud at lunch or dinner, that one has to stress to hear their friend sitting across the table. It’s also pricy and portions can be small. My Mediterranean salad is $15 with zero protein and for that much the size needs to be bigger.
Hi Niki, I've just left you a private message and would love to discuss your recent experience. Thank you for the feedback! Amanda
The food was excellent as usual. The vegetable crudités was so fresh! I am never disappointed!
Thank you for the feedback and review!
