True Food Kitchen - San Diego UTC
MAX, our amazing server, was AWESOME!
It's hard to find a truly healthy restaurant, True Foods is a breath of fresh air! Every dish I've tried has been delicious!
Great food and great service on the day we went. Highly recommend this place to all. They were very nice to bring out a little something extra for the birthday gal in our party of 5.
Food is so so. Service is great! Celiac friendly. Allergy friendly.
We dined at True Food after an exhausting shopping experience. We were lucky enough to be there during happy hour. Drinks and good $5.00, had the kale guac, chicken tacos, duo dips and ordered butternut squash soup. Our waitress Sarah was excellent. So nice to have calm, healthy dining experience at True Food our "go to dining" at UTC
Servers were great. Glad dogs are welcome. Food is very good.
I always love True Food. I love the concept & the food is always tasty. I like that they have vegan options.
I had the UnBeetable Burger which I had had in Scottsdale a few months prior, it was different than what I had there with a citrus slaw that was quite sweet. I didn’t enjoy the burger quite as much as I did previously. I think I’ll stick with my standby the Ancient Grains bowl in the future.
Just tried this restaurant for the first time for business lunch. Terrific.
Excellent food. Our server was. Great also. Was surprised that he was not yet 21 and had to have some one else pour my son’s cider. Will definitely go again
Went on a Saturday afternoon..the restaurant wasn’t too busy the time we came. The service was pretty slow, and the food was just ok, not worth the $100 bill we received for the five of us including three kids! I’ve been to True Food before and the service & food were pretty good. However this time was it less to be desired for. Maybe the restaurant was having an off day! Although I’m not sure if I plan to come back anytime soon.
I SO appreciate a clearly labeled menu. I didn’t need to ask a million questions, and I had a delicious dinner!
Numerous veggie and GF options. A few vegan options.
Grass-fed burger is so delicious
We were happy with the taste and overall quality of the food.
Always consistent with quality of food and service. Our favorite go to restaurant
I usually love going to true foods because the service is always impeccable and the food is amazing. However , the service this time around was incredibly slow and the waitress only came to our table once out of a 2.5 hour lunch session. She only came to us because we had to call her in order to request for refills, our check, and to-go boxes.
I have always enjoyed this restaurant in the fashion valley center since the day it opened. The last few times I’ve visited a True Food in LaJolla or Atlanta I was unimpressed on all levels. Sticky table greeted is last night. Took a long time to get served the wine we ordered. Hd to ask for water and that server asked another to get it. Various servers participated with seating, ordering, responding and serving food. We ordered and said we were in no hurry so we were surprised when all the food came out at once and the main dishes were barely like warm. The Teriyaki Quinoa with chicken tasted like it was warmed up from a day or two earlier as it was dry and lacked flavor. My husband had lasagne bolognese that was fair bit not hot enough to be enjoyed. Overall, the wine was the most enjoyable- when it finally arrived. I am disappointed that I won’t be giving this restaurant any more chances.
We have been to True Food Kitchen at least 5 times and we have a great meal each time. I love their Grass-Fed Burger with the Kale Salad and my wife thought their Turkey Burger was better than ever. Their Flour-less Chocolate Cake was delicious!
Good food options when guests have dietary restrictions.
Muy muy lenta la cocina y MUY mal servicio tuvimos q esperar mucho por la comida. Lastima porq la calidad y sabor de la comida es buenísima igual q el menú.
This was a nice open concept for a restaurant with tasty food that felt good for you. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good. It was an enjoyable experience all around.
The Panang Curry, with Shrimp, entry was fantastic!
Great healthy food and friendly staff!
My group was there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We loved everything about True Food & can’t wait to go back again!
Food and menu are excellent. Restaurant is noisy, making conversation difficult.
Too loud to have a convo. Need acoustical treatments!!
Everything was fine except I did not get opentable points. A bummer.
Everything was good but please turn down the music!
Great! So awesome with dietary restrictions.
I have been to the True Food in Fashion Valley but never to this new one at the new UTC Westfield. It was beautiful and our group of 8 had a quiet table on the patio for brunch. Our server was attentive and pleasant, and everyone enjoyed their food. We ordered several bowls, avocado toasts, and gluten free pancakes. Everything was great!
Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Accommodating to individuals with severe allergies. The UTC location has beautiful outside seating. The combination of tried & true menu items along with seasonal additions is refreshing. I’m looking forward to visiting again.
We've been a True Food Kitchen fan for years, however, I always forget to write a review. If we could eat at one restaurant every single day it is True Food Kitchen (in UTC specifically). The food is phenomenal every single time. The menu is healthy, the offerings are inspiring and we want to order everything on the menu. What we also love about True Food Kitchen - UTC is the positive vibe, the wonderful staff and it never ever disappoints. Highly recommend!
So we’ve tried this a couple times since it opened and it’s just not enough. I understand the concept but there are not enough options for the customer that doesn’t want to make the commitment to over the top eating. It’s also very chilly in the restaurant with only hard surfaces and kept me from lingering. Too judgey for me to spend my money here
This was our second time eating here. The food is very healthy but always seems to be lacking that extra something. Salt maybe. It always just barely misses the mark. Our waitress forgot my drink order (unfortunately so did I) and I’m guessing we were charged for it anyway. The kitchen looks clean and the dining area is beautiful and full of light. It’s a nice place if you’re extra mindful of what you’re eating but if you care more about how it tastes than what it looks like, try somewhere else.
Great food and good vibe. Servers very attentive. Lovely atmosphere and good music, but not too loud😄
We went there for Father’s Day, as a large group. They seated part of our party before all the others arrived, which was absolutely perfect. Our server was fantastic, accommodating, and explained everything we needed. He was very patient with us as everyone was so indecisive as to what they wanted to eat. Great service with a smile. Most of us don’t live in California and really loved it there. Wish there was one in CT near us, great food and fabulous options!!! :)
My family are all vegan, so we ordered the vegan meals and they were all very good, and appreciated! We had the vegan pizza, the vegan chorizo bowl, the ancient grains bowl and the tempeh blt. Also thank you for offering non-dairy creamer! Our server was wonderful. The downside is that the restaurant is super noisy, and the food wasn't really hot when we got it, nor was the coffee. But we will come back again.
Our server was very nice, the food was very good and accommodated many dietary needs.
Everyone enjoyed the food we ordered. 'Appreciate the ability to add off-menu items, like seitan, to their seasonal spinach and mushroom pizza. The Chia Seed pudding is yum yum!
The service was extremely slow. We had a waitress that was training someone, and we ordered coffee and it took 20 minutes. The guacamole was nothing like the description, and it didn’t even taste fresh. The food was okay- didn’t blow either of us away, but wasn’t terrible.
