Came for brunch and was blown away by the number of GF, DF, and vegan options. Staff were kind and knowledgeable. The butternut squash soup was particularly delicious. GF DF pizza also good. Didn’t get sick either! Will definitely return!

Staff were so nice and tried so hard to accommodate me, but two out of three Nima tests for different iterations of the same dish came back positive for gluten. Maybe my Nima was too sensitive, or the dish was prepared where they make their pizza dough, but I didn’t feel comfortable eating there, despite good experiences at other True Food Kitchen locations.

Excellent food and all gluten free, dairy free, and meat free items are clearly marked on menu. Menu changes seasonally. Wait staff was very knowledgeable and asked if it was a gluten allergy. When I ordered the spaghetti squash casserole without the cheese, the waitress asked if I would like to add their homemade almond milk ricotta, which I appreciated! Delicious, fun ambiance, and the place was packed. Good cocktails too and they change seasonally as well.

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.

Amazing food and you feel good after eating there. Best part is there’s something you can get for each course if you’d like. The noodle bowl is my personal favorite but they also have a pizza crust if you want flatbread. Manager usually brings the food if you’ve indicated an allergy. Get the quinoa brownie sundae.

This is a chain restaurant where I have always had great food and no reactions. We don’t have one where I live so I seek it out if I am traveling. Gluten free items are clearly marked and there are several options. When I told the server I had celiac, she said several staff members did too and they could make almost any item gluten free with small adjustments. I got the shrimp tacos which were delicious. I had wanted to try the salmon entree but it had farro. It ended up being what my fiancé wanted so we asked if they could do it gf and she said absolutely. They just swapped out the farro for brown rice. She put the whole ticket in as a gluten allergy and the manager came over with our plates, identified each and noted gluten allergy for each. The server then made sure to confirm the manager had come out and identified. My fiancé’s salmon was also fantastic. I was so happy I was able to have two wonderful dishes with no reaction. And I love the focus on healthy and seasonal food. Because of COVID the menu was a bit smaller than usual but it is great they can still offer so many amazing and safe options.

They ensure that they speak to their kitchen staff and that they are trained on how to handle allergies.

The food was great and I didn’t have a reaction. The staff was super nice, knowledgeable, and understanding. I’ve been there a couple of times and wouldn’t hesitate to go back

Knowledgeable staff and they have gluten free items marked on the menu. Even the kids menu has a marked gluten free option (a kids chicken teriyaki bowl). They do have gluten free pizza crusts and buns available as well. Some of our favorites are the Good Earth Kale Cobb Salad and the Steak Tacos. Their menu is on their website and shows all of the GF options so you can look before you go as well. We enjoy eating here.

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.
