At True Foods, expect to enjoy healthy, seasonal food at a good value, in a relaxed setting. The service is fast and typically friendly. I appreciate that the menu covers a range of dietary options--meat-eaters, vegetarians, vegans, etc. Give the "refresher" drinks a try.

Had dinner with a group of about 15 people. Limited selection, small portions, overpriced, uninspiring food. Service was mediocre: the waiter was inattentive and refused to do individual checks because "it was too much work for him" but still slapped us with a 20% tip....More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

I would call and ask them to be sure. They know how well they can segregate the kitchen and if you might be at risk for contamination.
