    My friend and I celebrated our birthdays back in November (It was my 40th, and my friend's 38th), and had been charged for the desserts by a kind of dismissive and absent waitress. We were welcomed back for desserts on the house, which is the dinner I'm reviewing. From start to finish, the meal was outstanding, the service was exceptional, and the whole experience was wonderful. I wish I remembered the waitress's name this time (she had glasses, very slender, and peppy) so I could give her a shout-out here. My friend and I split the brussels sprouts; she had the chicken noodle bone broth soup (she said it was awesome); I had the Winter Harvest Salad with chicken; my friend had the Spaghetti Squash Casserole; I had the sea bass; my friend had the flourless chocolate cake and a latte; I had the coconut ice cream & vegan chocolate chip cookies with an espresso. Both of us like True Food because we each have stomach issues. I cannot eat eggs, and I'm currently on an Elimination Diet which cuts out a ton of foods, and I was still able to eat nearly everything on the menu. We both like that vegetables are done correctly at True Food. The restaurant makes veggies tasty, and they're not an afterthought. I appreciate the customer service this time around, and [unlike last time] this time we weren't given a barcode and told to figure out our own bill. We got a traditional paper bill, and had no problem splitting the check.

    First time for brunch at True Food and will definitely return! The food was very tasty and arrived at a good pace. The sweet potato hash is delish and a must try. Service was attentive however, couple things could’ve been improved such as bringing plates for appetizer and timely refill on creamer for coffee. However, the warm personality of our waitress made up for those two hiccups. Overall, this is a great and healthy brunch spot in Ballston. Enjoy!

    The protein was left off of all of our meals. We’ve had great meals hee in the past, but they were definitely working with 2nd string staff before the holidays. One ask for her food mild and it was served very spicy. The parang curry was really good as usual. The seasonal special sweet potato noodles were so so. The dessert menu had one interesting seasonal option, and the rest could’ve been on any diner menu — molten chocolate cake or ice cream. Boring. Our serve was trying to be helpful, but when the protein was forgotten on all of our meals, she just brought out a side bowl of chopped chicken for each of us. Not marinated or anything. Just plan chopped chicken breast. She didn’t really go out of her way to insist that the kitchen make it right.

    This is my first time at this location. I chose it for the proximity to DC; easier than driving all the way to Bethesda, where I usually go. I am utterly disappointed with my experience at this location. We were seated around 8:45-9pm on Saturday where last seating was at 9:30pm. The staff was not as attentive, as it was almost the end of the shift. We were hosting a guest from WA state that we didn't see since 2005 and wanted to take to a special, quality of food, organic restaurant that we love. The food and drinks were good, with exception of my Teriyaki Bowl was added steak was not of great quality; hard to chew. The service was not good, as we were "rushed" to finish and never asked for dessert and coffee menu. The music stopped playing while we were eating, bright lights were put on while we were eating, and no one came by to ask us how our food was. Staff was cleaning up for the day, all while our dinner was still going on. There was another table there too. Then, server brought our check while we were still eating without us asking for it. It was loud and clear that we were no longer wanted. I just couldn't believe what I was experiencing, but didn't want to say much as our time with our guest was so precious and lasted only for the duration of that dinner. However, this "service" behavior is what not to do at the restaurant. I know as I held service jobs, including managing of a restaurant. If you operate in such a way, why don't you stop serving by 8:30pm, then. Also, no one greeted us while we exited even though bartender and some other staff were hanging at the bar. This is a rookie mistake for bad customer service and not expected of True Food standards. Needless to say, I will NEVER to back to this location. It was stupid of me to think that standards are the same for the chain restaurant of this caliber. I have to stick with my Bethesda location going forward, as I love this brand and love their food, but definitely have to steer clear from VA.

    True Food Kitchen - Arlington, Ballston QuarterResponded on December 13, 2022Hello Mala; My name is Adbeel Rodriguez and I am the General Manager for this location. I want to start by apologizing for this absolut horrible expeience. I am deeply dissapointed with our performance from last Saturday. I will be following up with My Management Team, and staff that worked that specific day and ruined such a special occacion, Can you please email or call so we can discuss how can I make this right for you? adbeel.Quiles-rodriguez@truefoodkitchen or 703-527-0930

    Attentive service throughout. Tasty dishes with ingredients that make you feel good about what you're eating. Butternut squash soup with decadent - rich & creamy - and the acorn squash flatbread was really tasty. Definitely crispy, so expect that, but really good & well seasoned.

    We were a party of four. We had the burger, sea bass, Panang curry with chicken and chicken wrap. We all found our dishes outstanding. The person with the burger said it was the best burger he had eaten in many years. I am a big fan of the seasonal menu and the non-alcohol drink choices are inspired. They know how to make a great cappuccino. I will definitely eat here again.

    Normally, I don't write negative reviews, but if you have food allergies, it's best if you avoid this restaurant. Here's the story: Overall, we like the food here, which is why we come back from time to time. What we don't like is the service. While the staff is always friendly, the food is always wrong. We have rarely received the meal we ordered and last night was no exception - though it was far worse than in the past. One of us has a diary allergy, which she communicated to our waitress. The meal she received was overcooked and missing most of the ingredients, so they agreed (not offered) to remake it. By the time a replacement came out, everyone else had finished their meals - even though we had all been eating slowly so that we would still be eating when the replacement came out. Worse than that, the kale salad had cheese on it, which she didn't notice until after she started eating it, which resulted in her having a reaction. For a restaurant that prides itself on meeting the dietary restrictions of its guests, is inexcusable. Beyond that, our waitress was almost nonexistent, which made everything take longer. When the manager came to deliver the remade meal, she said that it would be on the house, but when the bill came, it wasn't. Then we had to wait another 10-15 minutes before our waitress showed up to collect my credit card, before I could point out the issue. As I said, in general, we like the food here, but the slow service (no matter how friendly) and the oversight of a food allergy that resulted in an allergic reaction is inexcusable. If you have an allergy and you choose to eat here, please be very careful.

    True Food Kitchen - Arlington, Ballston QuarterResponded on November 26, 2022Hi Jables, I truly apologize that you did not have a good experience and would l like to make it up to you if possible. Please call me at 703-527-0930 my name is Diana Camacho and I am the Restaurant manager of this location. I feel terrible that there was not a proper solution in the moment.

    The food and the ambiance were the high points for True Food Kitchen. My friend and I sat outside and it was really nice to be part of the hustle and bustle of Ballston. I appreciated that True Food highlights the common allergens and identifies which items are vegan (I cannot eat eggs), and what the calorie content is. My friend and I both got the seasonal butternut squash soup, which I got solely for the sage (an under-rated herb, in my opinion). My friend thought the soup was very good, but I thought it had a soapy taste to it, which probably means it had cilantro in it. In fact, there were way too many dishes with cilantro in it at TF, and about 10% of the US population has a mutated gene that makes it taste like soap. My gene mutation eliminated a good portion of the menu items for me. I got the grilled chicken and avocado wrap, and it was very good. I was able to get a half portion of kale salad and a half portion of sweet potato hash (vs. a full portion of one or the other), and both were good. The kale had a garlicky / lemony dressing on it that cut through the bitterness of the kale. My friend got the ancient grain bowl, and did not care for it. We both appreciated that vegetables on the menu weren't an after-thought side dish, but featured more prominently on the menu, and--for the most part--were cooked in a way that was both tasty and healthful, but the Ancient Grain bowl missed the mark. For dessert, I was SO happy to see vegan vanilla ice cream (it's made with coconut milk, and no eggs!!) and chocolate chip cookies. And, when I got an espresso, it came with a twist of lemon and actually tasted good. My friend got the vegan squash pie and loved it. Last bit of criticism: I was celebrating my 40th birthday, and my friend her 38th. The waitress knew it, I asked for a candle in my friend's pie, and it never arrived. We spent a lot of money on the dinner, and there was no acknowledgement of our birthdays, let alone comping one of the desserts.

    True Food Kitchen - Arlington, Ballston QuarterResponded on November 9, 2022Hello! Thank you for the wounderful and very detailed review! Happy Belated Birthday for you and your friend!

    It was my first time. We went to celebrate my birthday and I chose this restaurant because my friend is vegan. The waitress forgot about us. She also took 20 minutes to let us know the restaurant did not have the ingredients for a drink. Service was the worst. Everything, including taking our order, took forever! The food wasn’t so great either. I got the Seasonal Ingredient Salad. It was unclear whether the dressing was on the side as requested (they forgot to bring the dressing) and there was two pieces of cauliflower and two tiny pieces of squash. I basically had a kale salad. Not what was indicated on the menu. I felt like it was a bait and switch. I do not recommend.

    The waitress was inattentive but friendly. The music was too loud and bass was way too loud. Hard to hear our think. I had the squash casserole which was excellent as was the hibisc lemonade.
