This place was amazing! Clearly marked menu. Many choices including gluten free buns. I had a grass fed burger, miso marinated eggplant, and strawberry rhubarb crumble! Delicious. People are helpful and friendly! I asked if there will be one in Vegas and they said yes!
Very knowledgeable and helpful staff and many gluten free options or way to make things gluten free! I had the kale salad with chicken and no croutons and it was great.
One of best for celiac in area. Clearly marked and educated staff. Hard find in this area! Very friendly staff too!
I wish this was closer. SUPER knowledgeable staff and options for vegetarians as well.
Amazing staff and a diverse menu. They also have the ability to make all of their pizza, sandwiches, and wraps gluten free.
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.
amazing food and drinks. feel great hours later
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.
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!
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.
The staff was knowledgeable about cross contamination issues. The steak tacos were great! No dairy and no gluten in them. Had a sour cream replacement with coconut milk yoghurt that was awesome! Great place environmentally conscious slightly expensive but worth it.
I was so excited to try out this restaurant since it received a 100% celiac safe rating. The menu had a lot of GF items including banana pancakes! I was so excited and comfortable ordering off this menu. The staff was very knowledgeable and I didn’t think there would be a problem. I realized how wrong I was four hours later as I started to violently throw up the heuvos rancheros. At first I thought it could be food poisoning, but everyone else at my table ordered the same and no one else had a problem. I’ve had celiac disease for seven years now and this is only the second time I’ve thrown up. The first time was when I was first diagnosed and I was testing my sensitivity by eating a fried Oreo (not smart). For me to have a reaction like this I had to have gotten a serious amount of gluten in my food. Really sad this place didn’t work out, it was so tasty (not so much the second time around).
First off the food was super delicious and the presentation was beautiful! We had the cauliflower and Brussels spouts appetizer. For dinner we had the Sweet potato noodle ramen as spaghetti squash lasagna. We verified with the waitress that we both had celiac and she showed us where are choices are already marked gf so we would be fine. However this is probably the worst case of being glutened I’ve had in years. Both my partner and I have been sick for the last three days. We had to rush home because we both got violently ill. So if you have celiac or have to be vegan or veggie for allergic reason I highly recommend staying away it’s clearly for the trend.
Celiac-friendly in my experience. Our waitress knew precisely what on the normal menu was and was not available GF and knew the corner cases to look for with the specials menu (e.g. soy sauce as part of the seasonal brussel sprouts). Food was great, to boot! It's in a mall of sorts, but the outdoor seating was quite nice.
Didn't even stay. Not many options, and the cucumbers and lettuce were being prepared on a counter that also had a bowl of flour, and flour spilled all over the place.
The food was good, and they did not gluten me. Apparently they have an allergy protocol in place for many different ingredients, and are known for this. My husband and I had the summer tacos. I had the fish and he had the beef. Both were quite good, though we had to order a third plate of them as one each was not enough.
The staff was knowledgeable and assured me it was gluten-free. As I walked out, I saw a waiter rolling the silverware onto the napkins on the same table where they roll out pizza. The flour was everywhere. I tested with my Nima and there was gluten in my dish that was supposed to be gluten-free. Sorry. If you are celiac, I wouldn’t eat here.
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.
It’s nice to feel not guilty of eating out. In fact it felt healthier than homemade meals. Menu was clearly marked and had a lot of options. They made a mistake and brought something not indicated as gluten free but made gluten free, so I’m sure they are very accommodating. Had pad thai(so so, don’t expect pad thai you get at thai restaurants), quinoa burger(delicious), fish tacos(kids ate very well). Especially the quinoa burger was very creative. Our dishes had more veggies and less carbs than what I except at most other restaurants. Didn’t get sick. The only thing was, none of us were full after...
Food was great and seasonal! Lots of variety, including the GF options, which is always exciting and overwhelming as someone with celiac. Waitress was knowledgeable, nice, and accommodating. I was informed they are familiar with cross contamination, have a separate fryer, a GF pizza dough option, and that man gluten dishes could be made GF.
Ate here once a couple weeks ago. They were incredibly busy for being early evening, which made me nervous. Menu isn’t huge in general, so limited GF options. They did understand my needs due to Celiac & mentioned the precautions they use. Pricey for what you get. Chia Seed Pudding was delicious though.
Very knowledgeable staff, I could eat their fish tacos every day!
Staff was extremely knowledgeable about cross contamination and their gf items were clearly labeled. They assured and reassured me that they’d change gloves, ensure clean surfaces, no fillers in their sauces, etc. Unfortunately although I felt great about my order, it tested positive w/ the Nima and I couldn’t eat. Thankful to have been spared a painful glutening but sad to see that even w/ all their assurances of a safe meal, gluten was still detected. Our waiter was very apologetic and seemed embarrassed at the fact that although the manager came and apologized, he didn’t give a discount or comp my husband’s meal or even offer a different plate even though I had to sit there unable to eat. I asked them to remove my plate off the bill and they did. Sad experience overall for someone w/ Celiac but thankful for my Nima.
Never have an issue here and I’m a very sensitive Celiac. I was told, however, not to order the pizza because it is cooked/prepared on the same surface as the regular pizza. Everything else is clearly marked and they even have gf dessert!
A little on the pricey/trendy side, but dang is their food good. The menu is clearly marked with what is gf. Their gf pita is on point. This place has a healthy vibe, but if that’s not your thing don’t be wary, because the food is so tasty.
I had a margarita on the rocks and beef tacos that were ok but not anything to write home about. The beans, however, were delicious. I ordered GF and stated I had celiac. Unfortunately, by the time I left, I felt bloated like I’d experienced cross contamination. We had high hopes that day we visited (2/24/2018), but we won’t be back.
SO AMAZING! They have plenty of gf options... including desserts and the staff is so knowledgeable. I was even able to eat there on my whole30!! I have celiac and am highly sensitive; have eaten there 3 times now without the slightest problem and the staff is so kind and understanding.. not awkward at all. such a great experience.
Food was good and gluten free items are labeled on the menu. Staff is very knowledgeable, but my charred cauliflower appetizer did come back gluten positive on my Nima Sensor. Manager was very nice and had it remade “correctly.” Also had their pad Thai, and nothing I ended up eating made me sick.
