Awesome - Edit

I’ve been here a few times plus had my bday dinner here. It’s great. Not an everyday place because it is a bit more upscale but I love it. Great staff and vegan choices on menu is so easy to get one of everything.

Loved it! - Edit

The is Andrew Weil’s brainchild and it does not disappoint! There were ample vegan options to choose from and our meal was incredible. The charred cauliflower as an app is pure perfection and the lettuce cups were equally as delicious. I had the teriyaki quinoa bowl with tofu which had a great flavor without overdoing the salt, and my husband loved the ancient grains bowl. I’m happy to see this place is expanding in locations because it’s that good!

Good vegan choices - if you Oder the right thing - Edit

I ate here a few times and had pretty good luck with the meals I had. I say this because I had a terrible meal previously at the True Foods in Denver. I think the trick here is to order the right things. I had the charred cauliflower, which was delicious. Then I had a pizza one day, which was pretty good. Another time I had the Ancient Grains Bowl. I enjoyed the flavors of that bowl. I ordered that Bowl again another time and added tofu. We also had the lettuce wraps one day as an appetizer. I liked them, but they were spicy. The salads looked pretty good. There are other vegan options that I didn't get a chance to try - perhaps another time.

Pros: Many vegan choices, Great service

Cons: Flavors in the food can be hit or miss

Perfection - Edit

We’ve been here twice. Both times I had the yummy ancient grains bowl. We also tried a shaved Brussel sprout flatbread which was fantastic, and a squash pizza with cashew cheeze sauce—oh my was it delicious!! It can get pricey, but worth it!
I feel confident about the ingredients here knowing that it’s a Dr. Weil restaurant 👌🏻

Pros: selection , service , taste

Cons: pricey

Incredible - Edit

I had the Ancient Grains bowl. Also tasted the Teriyaki Quinoa bowl, both were fabulous. Also had a chocolate cake with vegan vanilla ice cream. I can’t say enough about this restaurant. It is on the top favorites list.
Program won’t let me give 5 stars because it is not a fully vegan restaurant.

Glad They are Here - Edit

Im very glad that there is an establishment available for those of us who do not eat meat or dairy and True Food Kitchen was great. The selection was very good. The atmosphere was very open and casual which is nice here in SW Florida but the prices dictate that it should be more of a "fine dining" establishment. Great place to take a meat eater and you can have your selection as well. The wait staff was extremely attentive and friendly. I will say that when I got home I had to eat more. I left hungry. For four of us without cocktails or wine but with tip was almost $200.00


Pros: Accommodating staff, Vegan Chocies, Perfect for bringing carnivores

Cons: Small portions, Ambiance, Expensive

Tasty unique food - Edit

They seem to have unique food you don't see elsewhere. I loved their Roasted Artichoke Pizza and their Coconut & Chia Seed Flan for dessert. (Both are vegan). The flan was decadent and delicious. And the roasted artichoke pizza tasted fantastic. I loved the sugar snap peas and vegan almond ricotta on it. So I'd recommend going there.

Pros: Unique food., Vegan options., Seasonal menu that changes.

Cons: It can get busy sometimes.

Good concept, but meh food. - Edit

Health-conscious? Vegan-friendly? Yes please! Naples could really use more places like this. But my dinner here last night was a disappointment. Out of the three vegan dishes we had, only the shiitake lettuce cups were somewhat good. The charred cauliflower, albeit dressed in a tasty sauce, had no charred flavor whatsoever and had a mushy texture that was kind of unpleasant. Tasted like cauliflower that's been frozen.

The ancient bowl was another letdown. Way overpriced to begin with at $17 with add-on tofu even though it was surprisingly nicely cooked — I'll give them that. But the whole dish was poorly executed, too wet and heavy with these strong flavors all over the place. You have your grains in the middle, overcooked to a goo. Then your sweet potato chunks to the right, doused in a sharp miso dressing. I don't know why they felt necessary to top them off with another tangy green sauce, but there it was. I didn't have any avocado as there was supposed to be according to the menu, but I did find two pieces of chicken among the tofu cubes.

If you're already at Waterside and have omnivores that you must accommodate, I guess this place may be the best choice as far as vegan options are concerned over there. Their menu is clearly marked for different dietary restrictions, which always makes things easier. The interior is spacious with a clean, modern décor. But for better, cheaper, and all vegan food in a contamination-free environment, the Loving Hut is just right on the other side of US-41.

Pros: spacious interior, clearly marked vegan options

Cons: mediocre food, sloppy preparations, cross-contamination

Amazing - Edit

Had lunch here and it was almost a spiritual experience. Started with the charred cauliflower. I had the terriyaki quinoa bowl and added tofu. Husband had the TLT (smoked Tempeh, bib lettuce, tomato and avocado) with kale salad as the side. Several more vegan options on the menu and they will adapt almost everything. Can't wait to go back!!

Pros: The food, The atmosphere , Service
