    The Ancient grain bowl was delicious and fresh. The Kale drink was very refreshing and the staff was so attentive and friendly. I had the chocolate cake for my birthday and it was perfect. I would highly recommend True Foods to anyone. I will defiantly return!!!

    You must bring your own sharp knife as I do ... if you desire a perfectly controlled clean cut on any of their items ... especially the delicious perfect tasting chicken parm. Service is perfect and full of beautiful smiles.

    We had to send 2 of the cocktails back because they tasted like they forgot the alcohol. The food was flavorful but came out at only medium heat. There are better restaurants in Austin for the price.

    Great birthday dinner with the family here! Seven of us total, with two kids under the age of 10. Service was fantastic, except that we could’ve used more water towards the end. Food was very delicious, except that my ancient grains bowl was a little bit too salty. Ambience was fine, except that they are remodeling, so the floor has been ripped out and they are getting ready to replace it. Be especially careful in the bathrooms because the tops of the drain pipes stick up from the floor about a few inches and are trip hazards.

    True Food Kitchen - AustinResponded on July 20, 2022Happy Birthday! Thank you for coming in to celebrate with us. We're hoping to finish the renovations soon and have this place looking great for our guests again! See you next time!

    The food and drinks were amazing but the service was horrible. I kept having to ask other servers for things and ate half of my food before getting my drink 30 minutes later. The manager was very nice and ended up coming the drinks. Overall was a great experience just not with the server we had.

    True Food Kitchen - AustinResponded on July 9, 2022I am so sorry to hear about your experience. We definitely dropped the ball with getting you the drinks, and the server should have been more on top of it. I appreciate the feedback as it will only help us to get better for the future.

    We loved our dishes and in particular we had several new to us items that we LOVED: tuna tostado, sea bass entree (my new favorite and the veggies were so beautifully caramelized), and my husband raved about the Korean steak. Our daughter is vegan and this is a place where we can all enjoy great food. She loves the cauliflower tahini appetizer and always the vegan pizza. For dessert we had the vegan choc chip cookies that no one could believe were vegan. Our server was Lazarus and he was one of the best servers we've had! Our daughter enjoyed the vegan cream cheese cake but I think only vegans would actually enjoy that and I thought the vegan ice cream with the cookies was meh but we'll keep coming back!

    True Food Kitchen - AustinResponded on July 2, 2022Hi Katherine! I am so glad the entire family is able to enjoy their experience when you guys are here! I love the cookies also, and I'm not vegan, so I get it! We actually just put the mango tart on the menu that is vegan and it is absolutely amazing, you should try that on your next visit in. Thanks for the feedback on Laz also, I know he will be so excited to see this!

    I had the chicken sausage pizza that was supposed to have tomatoes. Just not enough veggies for my taste. I liked the thin crust and there was plenty of cheese. When I was leaving and talking to my friend, I didn't see the step down and fell right on my face. Which is red, blue, purple and pink now. The hostess saw this and brought me a LARGE BAG of ice, which was very much appreciated. I had a lot of stress trying to find a place to park! The parking app didn't want to take my cc after all the work I went through to figure it out. Parking problems may keep me from going back. I guess I can try out your Domain location. But my friend likes downtown.

    True Food Kitchen - AustinResponded on July 2, 2022Hi Linda, I am so glad to hear you are doing okay after your fall! I apologize for the confusion on the pizza, where it lists tomatoes, that is the tomato sauce, not sliced tomatoes. But you are always welcome to add tomatoes in the future if you would like. Also, if you call us, we can pass along the info for the company that runs the garage and I bet they can help you with the account for parking to get you all set up for the future.

    Our waiter was extremely friendly, however it took over 30 minutes to get our food which was just two basic bowls. The food was good but every time I’ve come here I have had a really long wait time for food which is frustrating because they only validate one hour of parking. We ended up being there almost two hours because of how slow the food came out and it cost me $10 in parking fees. I don’t see myself coming back unless a client absolutely insists.

    True Food Kitchen - AustinResponded on June 24, 2022We're sorry that your food took a while to come out. We hope that it was delicious and worth the wait. We appreciate the feedback about parking and are working towards getting an extension for our guests through the parking garage. I'd love to discuss more about this with you and your experience.

    I love True Foods. It is consistently great and you can go to any True Foods in America and find the same quality of food and ambiance. It caters to every diet and does not make you feel weird if you ask for your food to be prepared without certain ingredients due to intolerances/allergies. The ceilings are grand, the environment is friendly and it caters to every age.

    We came for Father’s Day after wanting to try it for a bit. Will not EVER come back. The service was basically the old Orlando Jones magazine sales skit. Seriously we watched our server fill all of the water in the entire restaurant while our drinks were 10 minutes waiting at the bar. Then he would NOT take the cues to stop talking and just take our orders. It would have been okay if at least the food was good. The appetizers - hummus and tuna tostada - were both excellent. And then the entrees…. Ugh. The garden scramble was extremely over cooked, to the point where the eggs were rubber and the steak chewed like beef jerky. Gross. My daughter ordered a plain burger and it came with gobs of Mayo. My husband ordered a burger medium and it came over cooked. No ketchup for the fries, no syrup for the pancakes, and when we asked for salt and pepper we literally watched our server spend 7 minutes folding a stupid napkin to put on the plate so he could bring it. Just. Awful. Worst brunch in Austin, by far. And don’t order the sangria, there’s not actually wine in it.

    Servers were nice and food was pretty good but service was bad - very slow and forgot multiple parts of our order. The guy who brought the food to our table was smacking on gum with an open mouth, which was kind of gross since he probably cast saliva on our food. Won’t be going back.
