Always a safe place for me to eat. If I ask a lot of questions and they're not sure, they always go double check. Expensive but a nice splurge.
So many great gluten free options! They have gluten free pizza crust. Their vegetable crudités is so yummy! The olive tapenade does have gluten in it so just eat the other dip. Their curry bowl and street tacos are delicious!
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.
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.
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.
HATED the quinoa salad. Flavor was terrible! Tomatoes in the salad were not fresh. Chicken did not appear fully cooked.
In town for a conference. Loved the curry and juice options!
Had the spaghetti squash. Not sure if there was cross contamination but I definitely got sick, celiac people should be careful here and ask more questions
Kind of hit or miss. Ive had things I loved and things that were just okay. Menu os seasonal so options change. But it's always fresh and staff is usually helpful. I've never had a reaction after eating here.
I had the Gluten free turkey lasagna and it was delicious! Either I must have been starving or this was possibly the best lasagna I've ever had (other than moms of course). I wish we had this place in Alabama :-(
I stopped here my first time hoping for more gluten free options then salads. They offered pizza on pita or sandwich, which wasn't obvious to me on menu. Thankfully I in listed help from server. But all the fresh vegetables in the world doesn't satisfy a craving for a sandwich. I just wish restaurants under stood that!! Advertising GF should mean more then salads and soup. Pizza on pita ok I won't go back too pricy for what I got.
I don't like hippies, but if you have celiac, you must convert. Pricy, but the food is at least ok, and they have never poisoned me. The pizza is as good as any GF pizza I have eaten (see Zpizza). The salmon is among the best I have had with or without gluten.
You are definately paying for high quality local organic produce here, but it is worth it to splurge sometimes. The salad bowls are HUGE, the other dishes are more portion friendly. Would recommend this place if you are in the area
We have eaten here several times. The food is consistantly excellent. It is a bit pricey; however, that is to be expected for tasty good-for-you food. They are true to their name "True Food."
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!
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.
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.
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.
