Excellent food. Staff knowledgeable.
Excellent, good quality food that is safe for celiacs. I particularly enjoyed the blueberry muffin from the brunch menu.
Great place to go and the staff are very knowledgable with gluten free information. Selection is also really good like others have said. The ingredients are also really fresh and can really taste it!
Celiac Review: Eat here with No Fear! Absolutely Amazing! Our server Joe from LA was top notch! His knowledge and care of my food was above and beyond! Everyone enjoyed their meals! 10 STARS! Hummus was delicious! I had the Shrimp GF Panang Curry, Hubby had the GF Marg Pizza and Dad had GF Chopped Chicken Salad. Everyone was impressed! So nice to be able to enjoy and meal and not worry about getting sick or cross contamination!
Celiac friendly. Great food!
One of my favorite places. Always has plenty of gf choice and always a gf desert that isn't just ice cream! If they have the fruit tarte...DO IT!!!!
Awesome GF options and VERY friendly wait staff! My new favorite Houston restaurant!
GF lasagna = amazing! As well as GF hummus w/GF pita bread. Love this place!
Omg it is good! The girls had the grilled chicken with watermelon and corn. My husband had the curry and it was mild. I had the spaghetti squash casserole with grilled chicken. We all had honey lemonade. And we are having the lemon chia cake for dessert. Awesome options!
AWESOME gf choices on their menu! I try to get something different every time I go but the Panang Chicken Curry soup ALWAYS just screams to me from the menu! I get it without rice to cut the carbs. I have had the spaghetti squash spaghetti and loved it. We had a waiter once tell us that the dessert that's tart and has buckthorne was one that was always being sent back as people don't really like it. Well I tried it on the next visit anyway and LOVED it! I'm more of a 'tart' flavor person, and the coconut whipped cream on it YUMMM!!!! My favorite dessert ever! My guys always get the no-grain chocolate cake a la mode. It's pretty darned good, especially if you are a chocolate person! (I'm not so much) Most of the staff is somewhat cordial, we seem to notice that there is kind of an air of stand-offishness or lacking enthusiasm with most of the waitstaff we've experienced (not tons of smiling - and the last time we kept having to flag our waiter down because he was busy chatting with the other servers instead of checking on us - the time before that they kept forgetting to bring my fresh juice and it wasn't busy but they did not charge me for it due to the wait). Not sure if it's an individual personality thing or just an untrained wait staff, where costumer service is concerned. They need to step up the friendliness factor in this part of town. Not sure if it's the time we go, or what, but we've never waited more than a few minutes to be seated. Despite the lackadaisical attitude of the waitstaff, we love this place and their awesome menu and we keep going back. The rating is for their menu and actual food.
Awesome food! A friend and I went for the first time. We were impressed from the ambience, the waitstaff, to the fresh food. We had the Spontaneous Happiness drink and enjoyed it with our starter: Edemame Dumplings that melted in your mouth. Entrees: Red Curry Shrimp noodles and Chicken and Sausage Pizza -- delicious!! Dessert: Super Berry tart with a buckthorn antioxidant- very refreshing! Thanks to our waiter Joseph who recommend all of the items! You will not be disappointed!
Wonderful food! gf markings on menu.
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.
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.
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.
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.
