The ambiance was great, the location was great, the waitress was so nice and helpful. This was my first time at this restaurant. The food was delicious. I had a day with my two sisters and we had such a nice and enjoyable time. I hope to return soon. I will bring other people that have never experienced this type... More

**I met friends for lunch one gray day a couple of weeks ago, and the food made the day much sunnier. It is SO appetizing. Had a wonderfully refreshing drink, honey lemonade. My friends and I decided to share several dishes. We had the Spicy Panang Curry (fabulous), the Wild Mushroom Pizza (good), the Spaghetti Squash Casserole (also quite good),... More

The location was in Fashion Island Mall--wish it could have been in a more interesting locale. However, inside, the restaurant was quite cozy and they had an outdoor area with heaters going. We loved the food, but my "coconut-milk curry" dish was overly rich and the prices were a bit high. We absolutely loved the desserts--it's rare we can find... More

I had dinner with some friends at the True Food Kitchen and we ate family style to sample a variety of dishes. The restaurant itself has a cool wood look on the inside and the patio is 95% covered by sheeting that helps to keep the sun away and wind blocked while still enjoying the outside experience. We started with... More

This place serves super fresh, super healthy foods. If you're into that, its great. The grass-fed burger was very good, as was the seabass and spaghetti squash casserole. Their refreshers are "unique", but pretty tasty. Their brunch is also good, but only served on weekends.

Had dinner at this True Food location for a business meeting. We had reservations and were seated immediately even though the restaurant was pretty busy. Our waitress greeted us immediately, and took our drink orders. I had some type of a specialty cocktail with some sparkling wine – perfect after a long day of travel. Food was fabulous; and I...

We've been coming here for years and the best times for low traffic are in mid afternoon between lunch and dinner. The variety of the menu is great and can fit everyone's food issues as needed. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to making your choices. Faves always are lettuce wraps (be sure to say no chili sauce... More

Really impressed! The flavors and combinations are so different and tasty it will leave you wanting to try all of their menu. I had been a while since I had tried something different at a restaurant and left this pleased. The food is healthy, trendy, and delicious. The whole experience was very rewarding. And I found the prices very affordable.

Great food with excellent service. Loved the Kale Guacamole and the Ancient Grains dish that had miso sweet potato, snow peas, avocado, hemp seeds and more ... They really accommodate any special orders as well ! The Chocolate Cake is a must order too ...
