    We eat at True Food often because the food is healthy and generally very good (and they have upgraded their desserts). Like the ambiance. On this occasion, we had a party of 8 and our table was waiting, our wait staff was excellent, and we were able to talk because the noise level outside was quiet. Everyone enjoyed their cocktails and meals.

    Once again the Pasadena TFK was top notch! The weight staff was impeccable. They catered to our every need. The food was so delicious, per usual.

    The first time I ate here I was wowed by the food and service, which is why we came back. This time I was not impressed. Why would you serve a hot pancake on a plate that is ice cold?! I also got the loaded potatoes and they were dried out, old and reheated. Even my cappuccino tasted like milk with very little coffee.

    The concept of True Food is great in theory but they seem to miss the mark in execution. Food is tasty and in spite of the outdoor patio, the ambiance is cramped and noisy at times. Our service last night was on the surface friendly but lacking. From the time we were seated to getting our drinks it was at least 10 minutes. He brought three glasses of room temperature water and it only when I asked did he bring ice. The server tried to upsell us first with drinks, going from 6 to 9 ounces of wine, to adding appetizers to adding protein to a salad. Not a relaxing experience for the money.

    It's a beautiful venue. The food is good enough but not delicious enough to come regularly. It's fresh and healthier than most options out there I just wish a few of the dishes really stood out.

    We celebrated both Father’s Day and a birthday and True Food Kitchen was able to accommodate our large party and both of our events. The food was delicious, the service was great, and we were very happy overall. Looking forward to returning again. Thank you.

    Great selection for food. We were there for Father’s Day Brunch. I had the Farmer’s Market Scramble. It was great. The only complaint I had was that it wasn’t as warm as I like but it was fine and I give them a pass because they were so busy today. Loved the Pink Lime Tart for dessert.

    Thank you for your kind words about our selection and for enjoying our Farmer's Market Scramble and Pink Lime Tart. We apologize for the temperature issue and will ensure your next visit is nothing short of perfect.
