Always have had a great experience. My celiac girlfriend has never gotten sick here.
The food itself was really tasty, but I did get glutened by the quinoa burger. I think this is probably a wonderful place if you’re avoiding gluten for intolerance reasons or as a personal choice - they have a lot of fun health food options on the menu and the staff is so sweet and friendly - but celiac folks, especially the super sensitive, should probably grab a bite elsewhere. 😕
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."
OMG THIS PLACE IS A HIDDEN GEM of this app bc it was crowded but their food is AMAZING. Totally celiac safe, this is the kind of place that knows what they are doing. All the staff were knowledgable and had menu items marked. However they can also make other items gluten free through modification. They have gluten free pizza crust and pita as well as buns and bread. This was our first time there but true food kitchen has already made it to my list of all time favorite restaurants (which is EXTREMELY selective let me assure you). they have a ton of dairy, vegetarian, vegan and of course gluten free options. But whether you are a die-hard carnivore who believes vegans are a blight on this planet to an exclusively raw food proponent, there is something at true food kitchen for you. I had the phanaeng curry with chicken and a chance to sample the entrees of my dining mates, the Moroccan chicken and inside out quinoa burger. We also ordered the cauliflower appetizer I forget what the exact name was. All three were excellent. I would order the curry again right now even though I am so full I doubt I’d be able to keep anything down to be frank. Anyways phanaeng curry was an infinity-out-of-ten, the Moroccan chicken was excellent as well, I didn’t think it was good as the curry but still the kind of dish that changes your life. The quinoa burger was phenomenal as well. The cauliflower starter had some sort of sauce and it was partially blackened and on the same level as the curry, which again has made it to my list of all time favorites. Finally, as the culmination to a heavenly, otherworldly experience, we had for dessert the squash pie and a blueberry muffin with ice cream. The squash pie was amazing. Enough said. I wanted to rewind my life after I ate it so I could eat it again. And again. And again. We will 100% be back, probably tomorrow for brunch if I can convince my family to go. If you haven’t tried this place, you HAVE TO GO. there are so many menu options in all different sorts of cultures and cuisines and as a celiac it’s amazing that places like this exist.
1st visit to KOP True Food Kitchen but have always had great experience at other TFK’s in Scottsdale and Fairfax. Only thing missing on the their menu was a Bison option to add to entrees. I had the GF fish(Bass) tacos. Would have give 5star but service was slow even for the appetizers which included a side of roasted carrots and GF minestrone soup.
Super knowledgeable. Tons of menu is naturally gluten free. Very popular and good to have a ressie. Love this for celiac.
Waitress knew about GF needs when I asked questions. She did say all pizzas are cooked in the same oven. (Not sure if it’s a convection oven). I ordered the charred cauliflower appetizer. Very light and good with a slight hint of lime. I had a fish taco and a steak tacos. (Order tacos and you get two - fish or steak or both) Came with a side of baked beans in a cup. Came with sour cream and avocado and shredded cabbage on a GF shell. They don’t offer sodas but offer drinks such as a squeezed apple drink which I had. Very good! Had a flourless chocolate dessert also very good!
The absolute best for GF. Roughly 30% of their menu is gluten free, and most of their dishes can be made so on request. They also asked me if my gluten free request was a preference of an allergy - and I formed me that as it was for an allergy, they would alert the chefs so strict gf procedures could be followed. I had the charred cauliflower, the shrimp curry, and the squash pie for dessert. Everything was amazing and I’m so so thrilled to have found a restaurant that takes gf so seriously.
So many gf options (much more than is noted on the menu, tbh) and I've yet to have a server who wasn't super caring and on top of it. Plus, a manager usually walks the food out when I've told them I have celiac to answer any questions and ensure the food is safe.
I had Roasted Cauliflower, Roasted Heirloom Carrots, Fish Tacos (sea bass). My husband and I shared 2 desserts: flourless chocolate cake and squash pie. Everything was so fresh and delicious. The desserts were sweet but not heavily laden atih sugar. They have many GF options that are clearly marked on the menumMy belly was happy and calm after this meal and I woke up feeling great...a clear sign that I wasn't glutened unintentionally.Highly recommend.
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.
