    she forgot mu coffee. I can live with that (but not for long). The real problem was the payment system. If you actually require the QR code etc - that would drive me & move away.

    True Food Kitchen - BethesdaResponded 2 days agoRoxyW, Thank you for the feedback. Sorry we forgot your coffee, we strive for excellent service so that sounds like we dropped the ball on that one. The QR code for payment is a primary option, but you can always close out with a physical check as well. Thank you! Paul Fitz General Manager

    Our first visit. Wonderful menu with broad choice of food and drink options. Even offered a Keto and Paleo menu (you must request this, it is not on the main menu). Service was delightful on the Monday evening we were there. Cocktails were excellent. Food was very good to excellent. We enjoyed the evening and will be back again.

    A favorite location. Requested a table by the window when making reservation, first offer was near the kitchen but a suitable table was found. Enjoyed the Herb Hummus and Charred Cauliflower. Entrees: Spicy Panang Curry, Ancient Grains Bowl and Korean Noodle Bowl, all delicious. Everything took a lot longer than usual because they were busy. I would have been frustrated had I been in a hurry.

    We ordered sea bass and we got strip bass, we asked the server about it, he said “this is our sea bass, let me check with the manager”… fish was dry and bland. Manager never checked on us or said something about it, even tho he knew we were unsatisfied with our food (we sent one dish back to the kitchen) but We ended up paying full price for “the sea bass” …. Our server was a star he did his best and was attentive. We love true foods unfortunately Bethesda location was not as good as the other locations.

    The butternut squash soup was divine. The brussel sprouts were tasty but a bit greasy -- maybe a bit too much oil/butter. The sea bass was nice - huge portion. Would've liked the fish more seared -- it tasted baked not pan seared. Lovely salsa verde and portobello mushrooms. The fish portion was so big that we couldn't have dessert - alas! Service was slow on a Monday night. The place is huge and I guess there are not many workers. Overall it was a lovely dinner and we would go back.
