Fresh, reasonably priced and they are so knowledgable about cross contamination. Did not get sick and I am super sensitive. I had the seated Ahi salad and it was amazing. Waitstaff is wonderful. Def recommend reservations.
amazing food and drinks. feel great hours later
This place was wonderful!!! The server really made me feel safe from cross contamination, he made great recommendations. We split papaya salad, we had grass fed steak tacos, seared tuna wrap all GF. For dessert we had a gf chia seed lemon cake. Lots of choices for dinner and dessert.
I ate the turkey wrap with the gluten free pita and subbed the yogurt for umami dressing since I'm also dairy free. It was AWESOME! Totally delicious! My friend got the panang curry and couldn't stop raving about how good it was.
great food, celiac friendly.
so many choices and delicious food.
Wonderful meal - heirloom tomato & watermelon salad with goat cheese and sea bass street tacos. Server was helpful & knowledgable to keep my meal safe. Wish there was one closer to Tulsa!
Awesome restaurant! Lots of healthy & GF options. The GF thin crust pizza is outstanding! Felt safe eating there. Great job with GF!
I rarely eat out. I have celiac, and am extremely sensitive, as well as very careful to avoid cross contamination -- whether I feel it or not. Damaging my health is not worth a night out. That said, I've visited both Santa Monica True Food, and Newport Beach, and they've both been the best experiences I've ever had dining out as a celiac. I understand that they have partially dedicated spaces for GF food prep, and always dedicated utensils. Certainly Newport assured me of this, and the server in Santa Monica made sure to take extra notes, and passed a note on to the chef. They make excellent pizza -- I loved the Roasted Kale and Tomato. Best GF I've had. But the Salmon, as well as the Curry, are also well worth a bite. A bit pricey, but if you're going to eat out, let it be eating well. Portions are plenty, staff are knowledgeable, atmosphere is peaceful (in Santa Monica -- a bit loud in Newport); and they're highly aware of issues with cross-contact. The safest one could be in a non-dedicated kitchen, without a doubt.
Three wonderful experiences on different occasions within a year and a half. Visited once during a slow period, once moderately busy, and one very busy Saturday night with a min. 30 minute wait. Ever time we experienced healthy, delicious, gluten free and cross-contamination-free eating. Pricey, but trendy/hip/modern atmosphere, and great location (next to shopping, movies, and beach). Excellent service and knowledgeable staff on every visit. Highly recommend the hummus with g-free pita bread appetizer. Pizzas are excellent, as well as the teas to drink. Peace-of-mind gluten free eating.
Awesome! I'm coming back
My favorite GF restaurant. Many GF dishes and a tasty rotating seasonal menu. GF desserts. Good cocktails. Everything I've tried has been good.
Love True Food! The menu is so easy to read and I love their Shirataki Noodles as well as the gluten free pizza (Organic Tomato and Roasted Kale is my personal favorite). Go Now!
Amazing food... I have celiacs disease and can't eat out unless they have a gluten free menu, which they have.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
This place is amazing with your gluten and other allergies!!!! They will work with you on everything and have lots of creative ideas.
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.
Eat here a couple times each year when in town on business. Fantastic, healthy gf options. Street tacos and tuna tataki never disappoint. Love the wide variety of fresh juices. Had a Mediterranean salad yesterday that was original and had fantastic flavor. Never once had a reaction.
