True Food Kitchen - Arlington, Ballston Quarter
Totally worth going. Everything the 6 of us had was different and good. Great service!
Great service, food. I have Avocado Allergies, and didn't remember seeing that Avocados were part of my dish. Otherwise it was just awesome dining experience.
Amazing dinner experience. Food and service were outstanding
Service needs to pick up dishes when one is done and also don’t ask a customer to pass you the plates you need to pick them up please it is general etiquette. Food is great attitude is good and pleasant. Atmosphere is good.
Good food for everyone.
Nice outside table and yummy food
True Food reported me to Open Table to failing to honor a reservation that I did honor. I even said I had a reservation upon arrival.
Food was okay, but not well-described on the menu.
We really enjoyed the great food, drinks, and service! We look forward to our next visit.
The children’s menu was not impressive. It was very limited and zero breakfast options.
What? No eggs? No waffles? No bacon?
Fun place for an evening meal. Lots of noise so if you are looking for a quieter environment I would avoid this restaurant. Service was very cheerful and helpful
I’ve been to True Food in Ballston three times and have always had a wonderful experience. Tonight in particular, after leaving and probably being about a block away, our server came running up behind us with my sweater that I accidentally left on the back of my chair. He really didn’t have to do that, but he must truly be a kind and caring person. Always great to see positivity in the world! Looking forward to going back soon and hopefully being able to say thanks again.
We got greeted and seated pretty quickly on the patio as requested. It took well over 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged that we had been seated. Once our server arrived she had a great smile and took our drink and appetizer order. We have dined plenty of times at True Foods and knew exactly what we wanted. Service was slow - our appetizer came out almost 10 minutes before our drinks. Once our drinks arrived we had completed the appetizer. Dinner came quickly after our drinks but when we asked the food runner for some water and hot sauce we never saw them again or our server. She only came and checked on us about 15 minutes after our entrees arrived. We asked again for hot sauce and waters. She quickly came back with it. Food was delicious but it seemed like the server was more interested in chatting with the bartender than making sure we had what we needed.
The food was good, although the kale guacamole was pretty bland. Our waitress was very nice and did a good job. Only wrinkle was that the kitchen finished making our appetizers about a minute before our entrees, so everything we ordered arrived at nearly the same time.
First time to this location. Food and service as good as any other TF i've been to
I just didn't find the quality of the food to be very good. The flavor was lacking and it seems like they are trying to hard to "be healthy" and haven't achieved good tasting food. I am a proponent of healthy eating but eating healthy can also taste good. I won't be going back.
Jonathan was a star server! Attentive yet not hovering, took a picture of my friends and I, and even gave us desserts when he found out we were celebrating. I’ll be back!
Fantastic food. Love the healthy options and the keto menu options. Great service too; the waiter was very helpful with choosing a dish (it was our first time at the restaurant). I will certainly go back.
service was incredibly slow. took 35 mins to get a drink.
Waiter forgot everything. We were there st an off time.
Service was slow for a lunchtime when it wasn’t too crowded. The food was great as ever.
It's delicious healthy food. Just a bit noisy for conversation.
TOO LOUD! Will not plan another Saturday evening reservation. Waitstaff person assigned to too much. Had to ask kitchen/ host staff "where are our drinks?" Sent home with pie on the house acknowledging poor service. The food is good but most everything else was not good
One of my favorite restaurants! We don't have one where we live so always look for one when traveling! This is my second time to go to this one - it was excellent as always!
We went after an work event of positive vibes, motivational speakers and just overall, good peeps and this place had the best staff and food! Everyone so sweet and nice and the FOOD.......ahhhhhh fresh, flavorful and freaking delicious, so much so I want to drive another 2 hours to go back SOON!!
thank you all who served the table from Richmond, we appreciated you!
Very good for a health food place. Seabass was solid but nothing special. Guacamole and brussel sprouts appetizer were very good. Limited wine list.
The portions of food were on the small side for the amount of money that we spent. Two glasses of wine and two entrees totaled $78 and that was without the tip Food was good but not outstanding. I realize they are trying to make healthy food and accommodate many people’s food sensitivities however I feel they should step it up a notch since we have many outstanding restaurants in our area to choose food. Service could also be improved. Communication between our server and the bar broke down and we had to wait awhile for our wine. Mine didn’t come until after we started our meal. Hope they can improve.
Food and service were amazing! I love that the menu changes periodically so it is always a new experience when I visit.
Food is not as good as in the Fairfax, VA location.
The salmon in my dish tasted fishy, indicating it was not very fresh. Server was notified but did not say anything.
My husband noted that the flavors in his dish were not up to par with the Fairfax location. We both have had these dishes before.
The patio area is very pleasant. Hopefully the kitchen will work out the glitches.
Maybe because it was brunch, I was a little taken aback by $9.50 apiece ($19.00) for two fish tacos. I’ll admit they were delicious and plentiful. Steak tacos are two dollars less. Generally, though the prices are only seem high if you look at the ingredients. Seems as if protein is getting cheap and veggies dear. Then there’s the apparent premium for “eating healthy.” We liked the bright & cheerful space. Our server was obliging, but got our drink orders wrong and brought us the wrong check. The hostess team was welcoming, and doing an excellent job of keeping up.
Great experience. Now my favorite neighborhood restaurant
I had a wonderful time.
An enjoyable experience. The lead waitress was excellent, but it appeared that some of the rest of service was still working out the new restaurant kinks. A good experience and would return.
So fresh, so flavorful and wanted to order what I had AGAIN to go! Amazing! Please come to Charlottesville, VA!!!
Food was delicious and the service was excellent
Food was good and service friendly, however, a few too many people swinging by to see how things were. Once is quite enough.
Had a very nice dinner here, the food and service were good. I'd recommend and go back.
It was too loud but all other aspects were great.
Family dinner before taking daughter to college.
Great food. Service was a tad uneven.
