I’m definitely not telling my husband how much I spent on dinner! It was very expensive, but it hit the spot! I had a spaghetti squash and chicken meal. My son had a gluten-free pizza. He liked his, also. Neither of us got sick, so it was definitely worth the cost. I just wish that the portions had been bigger.

I am celiac and I spent my bday dinner here with non-celiac friends. Everyone in our party of 8 LOVED their food and drinks. The Adaptogenic tea was a big hit with me and two friends (ginger is great for digestion!). I had the lasagna based on other reviews here, and was not disappointed! I even got a gf piece of squash pie with the most amazing coconut whipped cream. Better than my memories of gluten-full pumpkin pie. Thanks for a fun and stressfree bday meal! I will def be back.

Our friends did take out for us when we came to visit. My friend said they were so careful that they remade our food to make sure 100% we would not get sick. I had the lasagna squash and it was so good!! Highly recommend even on take out.

I loved that they have a paleo menu, we got the spaghetti squash with house-made vegan ricotta cheese and added a burger patty for protein. We split the drink “O.G.” which was sparkling water with ginger, lime, and honey. Mmm. Kind and friendly servers, seperate prep areas and the greeter is celiac too - which I thought was awesome.

One of my favorite spots in San Diego! The food is delicious and there are many GF options. The grass fed burger on a GF bun & lasagna are two of my favorites.

I'm celiac, so my choices are limited in a lot of places. This was the first time I've ever tried their food. I got the lasagna Bolognese and tasted the spaghetti casserole. I recommend both of those to anyone. Their food is amazing!

Amazing Gf/Df and vegan options. A little pricey but every once in awhile its worth it. Had the most amazing strawberry rhubarb crisp that was gf with a scoop of the most delicious vanilla ice cream from Villa dolce (coconut milk). I was told they have a separate area to toast gf bread etc. I never know if I’ve experienced cross contamination since I’m not celiac but this place seems legit. Our waitress even told me she has RA and strictly avoids a number of foods including all gluten.

I've eaten here twice & had reactions both times. I gave it another shot due to such rave reviews & now I'm sitting here in pain and wishing I never had! If you are celiac/ sensitive to cross contamination I would avoid it. There are so many great places to eat in San Diego that are safe!

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!

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.

When we come to Oakbrook this is our favorite place to eat! They have so many gluten free and vegan options. Even if something isn’t listen as gluten free on the menu they can often modify it to make it gluten free.

I went with another celiac for dinner and we both got teriyaki chicken and asked the server to make a note that we both have celiac. We both got super sick. Definitely glutened and very disappointed because this is supposed to be an allergy friendly place and that’s why we picked it for dinner :(

Server worked with my GF & DF diet and helped me find a plate that my temporary low histamine diet can accommodate. It was great! Looking forward to coming back.
