    As a vegan True Food has everything I need. Ordered three items, burger, chopped salad and ancient grains bowl. Salad and bowl weee both winners. Burger was the weakest item not terrible but there are better options. Kale aid was superb along with the prickly pear lime hibiscus drink. I will be back when in Denver again. If you go in o Fort Collins check out the Rainbow Restaurant for great vegan and vegetarian food also.

    True Food Kitchen - Cherry CreekResponded 3 days agoThanks for the review! The noise can be a tad much at time, so feel free to try our heated patio, too! Noise level out there is certainly lower to enjoy conversation.

    This is my Mom and I’s favorite restaurant so it was naturally fitting to celebrate her 70th birthday there! The food NEVER disappoints and truly I can’t ever figure out how they make it so delicious! Every meal has its own flavor that is out of this world! Thank you True Food for making my Mom feel incredibly special on her birthday!

    I ordered the Grilled Chicken with Mozzarella sandwich. The sandwich didn't have much of a taste at all. I also order a cup of Chicken Noodle soup and that was delicious. My partner ordered the Vegan pizza and had the same experience as I did, not much taste. Not a great experience overall but not horrible either.

    True Food Kitchen - Cherry CreekResponded on January 26, 2023David, very sorry to hear the dishes didn't hit the mark. We'd love to have you come back and give some other items a try and hope to wow you with those. Thank you.

    A salad - a “craft cocktail “ and a shared dessert $50. So loud you couldn’t hear yourself - food ok - not great. Pie had a soapy after taste. Basically wish I spent my money else where. I’m tired of these craft cocktails everywhere. People are spending less and these restaurants gouge the customers on these. $15 for $1.50 worth of liquor. I have officially paid for my last “craft cocktail” ever. #soovercraftcocktails

    The waitress was pretty cool, but the cook or whoever the guy was that brought our food to us was in a rush to leave when he asked us if we needed anything else I said no and my girlfriend was thinking about it before she could even finish thinking about it he was gone! That’s my only complaint outside of that the food is great!

    I love the menu, food, and service at this restaurant. My whole table loved everything and was so so happy with what we got. It is always so hard to choose on the menu I always want to order everything. I love that the food is healthy and sustainable yet so flavorful and delicious. The servings are ample. The servers are super happy and attentive. The prices are so good. Everything to love. Parking is easy. Thank you! I was a huge follower of the True Foods in Palo Alto when I lived the Bay Area and was so so happy to find one here!

    The food is fantastic! Almost every time I decide to use one of the “offers” & a virtual gift card there’s an issue and it takes a long time. Yesterday the server came back and said, “I can only apply 1 offer at a time so I just used your gift card but not the $10 off $40. Is that ok?” Frankly, it’s not ok. It is the managers job to figure out there’s an issue and to correct it. It ruined my experience all 3 recent visits. A virtual gift card is not an “offer”. It is like using cash or a credit card. PLEASE fix this issue. A nice New Years Eve lunch with my sister was spoiled by this long back and forth at the end of a delicious meal. TFK you can do better. Thank you!

    True Food Kitchen - Cherry CreekResponded on January 6, 2023We are so sorry that you had trouble applying your gift card. A manager should 100% be involved if there is an issue applying rewards. A gift card can be used in conjunction with rewards, give us a call at the store and we will make it right! 720.509.7661

    Dining room was utterly freezing - the whole restaurant was bundled up in coats and hats drinking hot tea. Entrees came out before appetizers. Not up to usual TFK standards.

    True Food Kitchen - Cherry CreekResponded on January 6, 2023Thank you for taking time to leave us your review! Unfortunately, Denver, and most of the of the country, suffered from record breaking freezing temperatures from December 23rd to the 25th. As we work hard to make all our guests comfortable, when temperatures reach well below negative 10, it can be a challenge for our heaters to keep up. Good news is that this record breaking below zero temperatures only happen in Colorado once or twice every 5 or so years. We do welcome you back soon!
