Very tasty and healthy food, friendly service well informed about celiacs.
Must try place!! Great options and lots of GF menu items plus willing to modify anything.
Many vegan and gf choices including desserts! Would go again if I were going to be in San Diego longer.
Love this place! I used to go to the one in Atlanta frequently and now I live in San Diego and was so glad to see a True Food here. They have items marked gf on their menu and the staff is very knowledgeable about allergies and cross contamination. My favorites are the hummus with gf pita bread, panang curry, inside out quinoa burger, street tacos, and the chia seed pudding for dessert!
This place is amazing with your gluten and other allergies!!!! They will work with you on everything and have lots of creative ideas.
eaten here 3 times, always speak to the manager and I have never gotten sick from cc.
I've eaten here several times without getting sick. They'll even modify somethings even if it's not noted on the menu.
Mediocre food and service.
Great food, but i did get sick once eating here, we couldnt figure out what did it. maybe it was the water they used to boil the lasagna?
AWESOME place to eat! Staff was so friendly and knowledgeable, food was fresh and healthy which is so rare eating out anymore. And no gluten issues afterward!
I love the clean, fresh food and they always have a good selection of tasty GF choices. Their kale-ade is my favorite of their drinks. I'm a highly sensitive Celiac who tends to get cross-contaminated sick at even typically "trusted" places. I've eaten here at least six times so far & haven't once gotten ill. I love it.
Traveling through and saw the good reviews. Tacos are amazing! They also have gf pita with the hummus! I'm sensitive and didn't get sick. Will be back if I'm ever in San Diego again
One of my favorite restaurants in SD...food is always fresh & delish!
Great place for fresh food & great atmosphere
I've had nothing but success as a Celiac at True Food Kitchen. My favorite dish is the roasted chicken and several of the many gluten free/dairy free desserts. All of the staff seems extremely knowledgeable about food allergies/Celiac, and ensures that extra care will be taken to make sure I don't get sick.
Many many gf choices! All staff very aware of celiac issues. Gf pizza crust and pita available but you have to ask---not noted on the menu. Charred cauliflower is amazing and the flourless chocolate cake is the best I've ever had. Very popular restaurant and can get loud. Reservations a must during season.
Ate here - didn't get sick
I ordered a Mediterranean quinoa salad that was so good. Staff took extra precautions to make sure I was safe. They cook their gf meats on a separate grill so cross contamination concerns are low. I did not get sick and it's been 2 days. Symptoms usually hit within 24 hours. Happy to find a place nearby that can serve healthy options.
Best gf choices In the area !! I have never gotten sick here!
GF options clearly marked on the menu. I ordered a seasonal salad and asked that it be prepared separately, which they did. They were clear again when they brought my dish out that it was gluten free. They also brought gluten free pita to go with the hummus dish. I would definitely go back.
Lots of "gluten free" options. Had the steak tacos and they were fantastic. Ordered the Apple crisp dessert and before I took a bite, I found some oats in the crumble. Asked the server if they were gluten free oats. Come to find the manager told me that oats didn't have gluten in them, and brought me the package of oats that said they were processed in the same facility as wheat. I didn't eat the dessert and didn't get sick from the tacos but probably would have had a reaction to the oats. If you're celiac, make sure you double check the ingredients because the staff probably doesn't know what's safe even though it says gluten free on the menu.
Visiting and came on a recommendation. Food was excellent. There weren't tons of gluten free choices but there were certainly enough. I had roasted Cauliflower as a starter. Delicious. Then had Panang curry. Also delicious but very hot (spicy ) for my taste. Lovely pomegranate sorbet to finish.
Amazing! Healthy and delish! Not to mention a fun atmosphere. We split the seasonal winter salad, butternut squash pizza, and apple goji cobbler and loved every bite! Staff was so knowledgeable and menu items marked. I can't always tolerate dairy and they had a coconut milk ice cream for the cobbler and almond ricotta for the pizza!!! I'm still on cloud nine!
When I say It's hard to find amazing dishes that are gluten free, this place is heaven sent. They soups, tasty drinks from horchata, homemade teas, beer and wine. The roasted cauliflower is amazing! And the have a lasagna dish that's gf and amazing! Definitely grateful for the found of the golden spot!
Menu lists which dishes are gluten free. If you say you have an allergy to gluten they make the dish in a separate room and use clean utensils, prep surface area etc. Waiter staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Delicious food too! Eating here a number of times and have never gotten sick.
My 3rd visit since January. This time I had the Mediterranean Salad with Steelhead Salmon which was delicious. I've had the spaghetti squash casserole with added bison patty chopped and mixed in. I have celiac and never had any problems. I'll be back.
Absolutely outstanding and highly recommended! They take allergies very seriously here, are very excited to make you a customized meal, the waiters are knowledgeable and the food is made from scratch with high quality ingredients. Ate here twice in three days. Loved the chia banana coconut pudding, citrus cucumber margarita, and grassfed burger. Do not be afraid to try to customize an order! I personally thanked the chef and he was so humble, simply saying that they do this kind of accommodation (I have a long list), all the time. Wish more restaurants could have that kind of attitude!
Celiac Review: Eat here with No Fear! Absolutely Amazing! Our server Joe from LA was top notch! His knowledge and care of my food was above and beyond! Everyone enjoyed their meals! 10 STARS! Hummus was delicious! I had the Shrimp GF Panang Curry, Hubby had the GF Marg Pizza and Dad had GF Chopped Chicken Salad. Everyone was impressed! So nice to be able to enjoy and meal and not worry about getting sick or cross contamination!
Whenever I visit the DC area on business, I always ask my colleagues to eat at True Food Kitchen. There is always something on the menu I can eat (taking in consideration my celiac disease and soy allergy). The Berry Tart is heavenly (but is only offered seasonally). This is by far one of the very best chain restaurants I have been to!
Delicious food without guilt, both because it's GF and also healthful in other ways. GF chicken sausage pizza is very light and tasty, and the Spring Vegetable salad complements it well. Try the Tempranillo red wine from Spain's famed vintner Marques de Caceres, a real treat.
