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!
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 hate to leave a negative review, but I've eaten here twice now, and I've gotten sick both times. The thing that bothers me about this place is the amount of items on their menu that SHOULD be gluten free, but aren't. (Salmon??) Our server explained that they couldn't be easily changed and retain their flavor. I guess my conclusion is that they just aren't very focused on gluten as an issue in their kitchen.
Really good food. Seemingly Celiac safe. Very loud inside. Sometimes difficult to deal with host/hostesses to get seated.
Amazing food! Such a treat! I wanted to take advantage of a hamburger bun but liked the ingredients in the quinoa inside out sandwich better. So my knowledge server suggested giving me the grass fed burger with the hummus, tzatziki, tomato, cucumber, red onion, avocado, and feta. It was AMAZING! The server only offered me side choices that were GF. The sweet potato hash and the kale salad were both delicious. There was a $2.50 charge for the GF bun that I didn't know about, but there was no extra charge to customize my burger. Not cheap, but it was sooooo good!
Fantastic. Staff friendly and very knowledgeable about gluten. Bartender knew every ingredient in alost every dish. Even the soy sauce in the tuna tataki appetizer is GF tamari! 2 weeks ago I had the fish tacos, excellent. Last night i had the baked chicken. It was a culinary treat with cilantro pesto. Entire menu is very healthy.
Ate here last night, food was tasty and the waitress was very knowledgeable of Celiac. I had the Chared Cauliflower appetizer, which BDW was delish, the baked chicken and the antioxidant beverage. No reaction at all....will definitely go back!!!!
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.
