Our waiter Scott is so well versed in gluten free. I didn't have to ask make sure it's gluten free. He said he would make sure the food is separated ensuring no cross contamination. Outstanding food and drinks. Try the dazzling eyes drink and butternut squash soup!

Very knowledgeable staff, with the kitchen and servers trained about foods that minimize inflammation of all kinds. My wife who has Celiac's and is very gluten-sensitive felt completely fine afterwards and also enjoyed her meal a great deal.

So many yummy GF options! All GF items are marked on the menu and the staff was very knowledgeable. Love to get the burger and roasted butternut squash pizza with GF crust & vegan ricotta. They also have delicious GF cookies with vegan ice cream for dessert!

I have eaten here several times, never been glutened. When I went today the manager told me they have a new policy for the manager to bring out the food for anyone with a food allergy. I love that they take it so seriously.

My mom & I found this place on a whim while shopping at the mall, & it did not disappoint! Our server was very knowledgeable about celiac & cross-contamination, & he pointed in the direction of some amazing dishes. He explained that they’re a seasonal restaurant, so their menu changes each season to fit what is locally grown & in season for that time. As an appetizer, we split the hummus with gf pita. I haven’t had pita since being diagnosed, & this was amazing, so light & fluffy & served nice & warm. The hummus was delicious, and was served with a salad of cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, Kalamata olives, red onions, and feta cheese. The olives were a little sweet, which lent a nice sweetness to the dish as a whole. As an entree, my mom had the butternut squash soup, which was a appetizer served as a main course. It was so delicious and creamy, and hard to believe it was a vegan dish. I enjoyed the shrimp tacos for my entree, & they were so flavorful, served with a side of cauliflower rice & street corn, which was one of the best bites I’ve had in a long time! To finish our evening, we shared the cookies & cream, which were two chocolate chip cookies serve the side of vanilla bean ice cream. The cookies were delicious and soft baked, with large chunks of chocolate in them. The ice cream was a great addition, & was served topped with cacao nibs. Overall, we enjoyed every bite we had here, & will definitely be returning in the future! We can’t wait to see what the next season brings for their menu!

First visit was great. Food was amazing and the desserts were to die for.

Second visit was the worst glutening I’ve had in a while even after confirming that it was allergy safe and followed safe procedures several times. Extensive gluten free menu and plenty of vegan and vegetarian options but a gluten-free menu is only as good as its execution.

Wonderful experience here. I’ve been several times and have tried many things. Their burrito bowl is super yummy. I have never inquired about their gluten free pizza (about cross contamination) but I have not gotten sick here and always enjoy the freshness of the food.

I had a great experience at True Food Kitchen. Their menu is clearly marked. Served marked down my allergies and my food was brought out first and allergies announced, which is always reassuring. I paired some sides and shrimp together and all the food was great!

Only had one of their GF desserts (blueberry crumble sundae) but it was delicious and a nice treat at the end of the day! They seemed to be knowledgeable about celiac and GF options.
