    I’m struggling to find the right words to convey just how disappointing my recent visit was. The service was practically non-existent, the food was painfully bland, and the prices were unreasonably high for some basic ingredients. I ordered the Big Egg Breakfast, expecting a hearty meal, but what I received was far from it. The scrambled eggs were overcooked, plain and rubbery, the bread was stale and barely edible, the potatoes were unseasoned and lifeless, and the sausage was dry, overcooked, and tasteless. Every bite was a regrettable experience. To make matters worse, the service was abysmal. I had to wait ages to get any attention, and when I did, the staff seemed disinterested and unhelpful. Honestly, I would rather have cook and served the meal myself. The only thing this place has going for it is the interior decor, which is quite nice, but that alone is far from enough to make up for such a dreadful experience.

    Awful. Mediocre food, slow and inept service, and 20+ dollar entrees are a terrible combination. Straight up forgot my main while rest of my party was eating and had to re-ask what I ordered. Literally none of the fundamentals of a good restaurant (good food, warm attentive service).

    Good was clearly sourced from very fresh ingredients. We sat out on their lovely front patio on a nice summer afternoon. The wait staff was accommodating and friendly, and hit that sweet spot of checking on us enough without being intrusive. Highly recommend.

    Servers were helpful, prompt, took initiative. I ordered the vegetarian peanut bowl and it was just a blob of overcooked noodles with some pretty bland sauce. It looked very unappealing. My dinner companion ordered the burrito bowl and was very pleased with it.

    From the incredibly rude staff to the overpriced, poorly cooked food, an overall awful and regrettable experience. I have to exclude one hostess and our waitress from this review, but I can confidently say I will never eat there again. I truly cannot say enough bad things about the experience and meal I had at this true food this past Sunday.

    I really like True Food Kitchen, so was excited to go after a movie in the Ballston theater. It was 6:30 on a Tuesday and not too busy. They tried to sit us next to the kitchen where I've sat before, but it's not a great spot since the window to the kitchen is right there. We asked to be moved to a more comfortable spot in a booth. We tried being patient by waiting an extra long time since perhaps we had inconvenienced the staff by requesting to be moved. But after about 20 minutes, no one had come to the table. We needed to be back for the babysitter to leave, so we just got up and left. We went to the Ballston food court and had an average dinner but faster service.
