True Food Kitchen - Chicago
Great food but just know the type of restaurant you’re going too because they’re definitely lighter/smaller meals. But that is what we were looking for and GF so it was perfect
Great food....healthy! Upbeat atmosphere.
Thank you Doug!
Very good experience all around. Both food and service were great. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We had their flat brad and their curry dish and they were both excellent. The fish tacos were a little dry and less flavorful than the description suggested so won't order again. We went back for the curry the next day and also ordered their Korean noodles dish and charred cauliflower for appetizer and both were exceptional. Next time we would add a protein to the Korean noodles though- the dish itself is very flavorful but doesn't have a lot of veggies in it- just one (!) mushroom and some sprouts and cilantro.
Thank you Natasha!
Our group had an amazing experience at True Food Kitchen for dinner. As people with autoimmune conditions, it can be difficult to comfortably dine out with our food restrictions (e.g., no diary, no grains, no processed oils, etc.). When we saw the Paleo and Keto menu at True Food Kitchen, we were already excited but after reading about the restaurant online, we learned that they are willing to make additional accommodations to meet your dietary restrictions. I reached out to their chef via e-mail who promptly responded to me acquiring about our food restrictions. I placed our order in via e-mail. When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted by a friendly server. Shortly after, the General Manager approached our table to let us know that they are aware of our dietary restrictions and are ready to accommodate us in the kitchen. We felt relieved that they were so pleasant and non-chalant about the accommodations as so we didn't feel like a burden or crazy for adhering to our diet. The staff made us feel incredibly empowered and supported in prioritizing our health. The food arrived in a timely manner and it was delicious! Our two other friends who ordered off their regular menu also had a pleasant experience and commented on how delicious their food was. Overall 5/5 stars for food and service! It is rare to find a place to eat out without worrying about your diet or feel guilty about it afterwards and True Food Kitchen made it extremely easy to have a pleasant dining experience! Highly recommend!
Wow! Thank you Amy! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed everything part of your experience so much. We hope to see you again soon!
Great food --friendly and attentive wait staff. Love this place ---great for a group.
Thank you Barbara!
arrived on time for a noon reservation. was glad there weren’t many patrons as was meeting a friend to catch up and the place can get loud. friendly hostess wanted to seat us in between two other couples despite other tables being open; decided to sit at bar. waiter started off fantastic and went down hill from there. 3 times we were interrupted by a server wanting to give us food that wasn’t ours. max 20 people in restaurant :0 waited at least 20 minutes for an ice tea - apparently machine not working. after we received our food never saw a server again. we wanted dessert and another server said she could help us. She asked if we want the dessert to go; pretty sure the ice cream would melt the minute we stepped outside, so no. Have been here numerous times for dinner and everything was fantastic. Cant recommend for lunch at this time.

We had a fabulous meal, both vegan and non vegan. Our waitress was great, and the atmosphere was fun. Definitely recommend!
Thank you for the amazing feed back!
Food is terrific!! Service was great! Loved the new summer entrees. The one negative- the noise from Barry's Boot Camp is a bit overwhelming!!
Service was only ok, but the food was excellent. Absolutely recommend.
Thank you Jessica
I went to True Food Kitchen in California and Arizona. The menu is fit for all dietary restrictions. I am gluten free and vegan, and was able to find a delicious cocktail and lunch! My boyfriend even loved his steak tacos. Great restaurant with healthy, fresh, foodie vibes
Thank you for the great review Rachel!
Loved that all the items were labeled on the menu (vegetarian, gluten free), clean and well attended to restrooms, great ambiance. Only downfall is that they ran out of flourless chocolate cake.
Thank you Ariel!
Waited almost 45 min between when we ordered and when food arrived. Had to get check when food came and left with food in boxes.
Jenn, we are sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I know 45 minute wait for food is not normal in our restaurant. We are sorry this happened to you and I know we can do better. I hope you are willing to give us a another chance to prove this to you. If you could PM your contact info I would like to send you a gift card for your next visit.
Sat outdoors by request. Nice area. Delicious food. We had blueberry pancakes and the breakfast bowls.
Super food, many gluten free options....and wonderful gluten free desserts. Thank youuu!
I have been to this restaurant numerous times and it never disappoints. Food is always amazing, service is great, and ambiance is beautiful. I have been for brunch and dinner and both are so good.
Thank you Sarah!
Fantastic food, loud atmosphere but worth it, delicious!
Thank you Meg!
Awesome space. Great food. Wonderful, accommodating staff.
Food and drink were outstanding. Great choices for all tastes, and incredible vegan options.
Thank you for the great feedback!
Excellent food, great location and venue, the cauliflower starter is AMAZING!!
Thank you Neale!
Great atmosphere with a wonderful selection of healthy food choices.
I usually love this place. We ordered a pizza and it was JUST crust, cold tomato sauce, & raw arugula with some olive oil... (no cheese and the toppings weren’t even cooked!!) kind of disappointing considering the dinner was around $100 with a tip. Sad too because it was for a birthday dinner!!! Thankfully I enjoyed the drink I got

True Food Kitchen is one of
My favorites in Chicago. Everything I’ve tried has been a home run!!
The food is great but service was horrendous. We needed to ask another server to get us water. Appetizer never came. No one asked us if we wanted a second cocktail. Oh well...

Took a long time to get food, but everything else was great
This place is good for the health conscious, but neither of our kids ate their food - too edge for them.
Thank you Greg.
Excellent menu and amazing food . Everything was fresh and very delicious with great flavor Portions very adequate for the price . Service also very friendly and attentive . Ambience very relaxing and lively
Thank you Shirin!
I was great experience, the food was amazing. I will go back soon.
Thank you Monica!
AMAING...True Food Kitchen is my favorite restaurant hands down
Thank you Nate!
Have been there twice before and had a good experience, but the food was really disappointing this time - lacking in flavor overall and the salad was dry and underdressed.
Sorry you didn't enjoy food. We would like to hear more so we can improve.
Thank you for the 5 stars Katie!
I love this restaurant. The menu is so fresh and healthy. You feel good eating here.
Service is always on point.
Only minus is it is quite loud inside with the high ceilings.
Had dinner and sat outside which was the perfect experience.
Thank you Michelle!
Fabulous place for lunch. So fresh and healthy! Great service and bright, vibrant environment!
Service and food, always top notch!! We can’t not visit here when in Chicago :)
Thank you for the amazing review!
True Food serves a delightful array of healthy, unusual dishes. We enjoyed sharing 3 starters as our lunch. The service was friendly and available when you needed them! I will return and I recommend you pay them a visit.
Thank you for the great review!
Great restaurant, great food and great service! I would like the music down a little since it is a restaurant so that I can hear the people I was talking to at my table more clearly and they could hear me as well vs feeling we have to raise our voices over dinner to talk to each other. I would still go back. That is the only thing I wish was a little different.
Thank you Jon. We appreciate your feedback and we will make sure we are monitoring our music volume on a daily basis.
Really impressed with diversity of offerings, service and ambiance. Food was very good. Got busy very fast so would recommend a reservation. Great value.
Thank you for the 5 stars!
Great staff !!
Loved the whole experience
We couldn't be more happy to hear you had such a great experience! Thank you for sharing.
Portions could be more generous, but great spot and menu. I love when you can get healthier versions of your fav foods.
Thank you Blake.
Really enjoyed the variety of exciting dishes. The cauliflower appetizer was incredible! My husband had the redfish and it was prepared perfectly. I had the ancient grain salad and it was really good. Our waiter was knowledgeable, attentive and the overall experience was great. We would not hesitate to return.
Thank you for the great review!
Great food. Too noisy so I go at off hours when it is quieter.
Thank you for sharing!
