    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
