Delicious. Good balance of veggies meat and starch. Price is about $20 a plate for lunch but cheaper if you’re a vegetarian. Bowls, pizza, entrees. The burgers are not gluten free except for one. We all had bowls. My first teriyaki bowl! I’ve had gluten free soy sauce lots of places but this was my first teriyaki. Yum

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.

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.

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.

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.

We’ve eaten here many times. My wife is very allergic to gluten and a variety of other things, resulting in migraines and stomach pain if she’s exposed. True Food and Epik Burger are the only two places she’s NEVER had an allergic reaction. That level of consistency is rare in the restaurant industry! And the food tastes great!

Brought my celiac daughter (12) here to eat last night for the first time. She is highly sensitive to cc. We informed the waiter she had celiac and he knew exactly what to do. We shared a flatbread on gf crust that was brought to our table and announced as gf with a gluten allergy. We normally avoid all gf pizzas due to cc in toppings. No problem here and it was delicious. Also shared the fish tacos and beef tacos. Shared 2 desserts - the flourless chocolate cake and the squash pie - all 4 desserts on the menu were gf. Meal was delicious. My husband got a salad with farro in it and the waiter reminded us if the farro when he brought it to the table and said it was not safe for my daughter. Staff knowledgeable, and 24 hours later no reaction.

Louis was our server and he was very knowledgeable about the menu and engaging to talk to about different options. He let us know they strive for an overall anti-inflammatory menu in addition to gluten-free options and responsibly sourced meat additions. The gluten free chocolate cake is TO DIE FOR and it was completely guilt-free since I didn’t actually feel like dying after eating here! Love this place and the atmosphere :)

Staff were very friendly, lots of GF options on the menu (went for Sunday AM brunch). They noted a gluten allergy when they served each of my dishes...which felt odd at first but was reassuring that the message really made it from the server to the chefs to the food runner. I’m newly diagnosed so I may not notice if I “get glutened” but I look forward to returning here.

Before celiac, I thought this place was very safe for those with celiac disease. After my diagnosis, it was the first place I went out to eat. I had a burger wrapped in lettuce with avocado. I had a side of kale salad with nothing on it and champagne vinaigrette. I was terribly sick within 30 minutes. They bake here in an open kitchen. I would stay away if you have celiac disease.

The food and atmosphere are good, and the staff is friendly, however both times I’ve eaten here I ended up getting sick. The first time I had a burger on a gluten free bun and the server and manager assured me how safe it was for celiacs. I was sick before I left the building. I decided to give it another shot and ordered items specifically labeled GF on the menu, and still ended up glutened. I did notice that the GF stands for gluten friendly not gluten free, and maybe I’m more sensitive than I thought, but I don’t consider this restaurant safe for celiacs disease.

With Dr. Andrew Weil being a co-founder, I knew it was going to be healthy AND delicious! My daughter and I have Celiac, so it’s nice to be able to eat somewhere where the staff is knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination risks. I have been following the Autoimmune Protocol and they had options for me as well. I had a lettuce wrapped grass fed burger with sweet potato hash. The patty was very tasty and juicy. The sweet potato has was also good. My daughter had the the grass fed burger on a gluten free bun (NOTE: there is a $2.50 up charge for a GF bun, which we were not made aware of until we got our bill) They offer drinks, smoothies, teas and detox drinks as well. They also had a gluten free butternut squash pie. I skipped dessert this time because is was not AIP compliant, but look Forward to trying it once I start reintroducing new foods. It was a bit pricey compared to other places ($38) that was for water and 2 burgers and sweet potato fries. Overall, we enjoyed our food. The interior is simple and beautiful, just like the food! They also have nice dining outside. Valet parking and reservations are also available.

Ordered take out and was very clear in requesting gluten free. When it arrived, it was obvious one dish had not been altered to accommodate this. When I called the restaurant they confirmed that they had made a mistake and had not made it gluten free. They said they would refund the order and never did.

ASK BEFORE ORDER!!!! I stressed the celiac diagnosis upon ordering and the waitress was confident. Overconfident as it turns out. They ARE conscientious about preparation, however, when I ordered the clearly marked GF teriaki chicken bowl for my son with celiacs, someone from the kitchen came out and said “actually the teriyaki sauce isn’t gluten free.” Gluten free...sort of?!? They showed me the Korean Noodle bowl that “actually Is gluten free”. Traveling. Fingers crossed.
