    This was our first time here and we were not cared for. We had to get up and get our own plates. The server seemed very busy and other tables received more attention than us. Our dining experience lasted 2 hours. That’s way too long. No one collected the used dishes.

    We sat outside on a fairly hot steamy night but there was no sun hitting us and there was a breeze and it was quite nice. The waitress was off with her timing and we had to wait several minutes for a final drink to arrive before we could enjoy our cocktails. The price is right and certainly the recipes were very original or so they seemed.

    Great location in new development in Bethesda which was very close to our hotel off Wisconsin Ave in Chevy Chase! We had a great server that had a fun personality that really made our evening of a casual work business dinner so much fun! Food wise, everything we ordered was outstanding! Hummus was one of the best I have ever had!

    The food is consistently delicious. They always happily accommodate any dietary restrictions. The kids menu could use some additional items - only 3 options for a healthy family friendly restaurant doesn't seem like quite enough. But the service here is always wonderful and welcoming.

    Service was sporadic. Server disappeared after our food was brought and we had flag down other servers and then ultimately the manager. Food was good except corn tortilla soup was very spicy. Sent it back to the kitchen because it was inedible. Manager was very nice and helped to remedy the issues. She also treated my friend to a birthday dessert and gave a discount off the bill.

Salads were delicious and both chicken and salmon prepared perfectly. Pizza was great and curry was on point. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed lunch and we all felt like we had eaten a healthy meal too! Great visit.

    Very nice interior, kind and friendly service, Long waiting time for food after placing an order: about 40% or less tables inside the restaurant were occupied so I was expecting we will get the food sooner; would be great to have crayons & coloring sheets for kids. Large selection of dishes, number of calories indicated- great idea! very good pizza

    I've loved everything that I've had at True Food Kitchen, including on this visit, when I ordered the breakfast scramble with a poached egg, avocado, broccolini and other vegetables. I love the shaded outdoor seating on Wisconsin Avenue, which is perfect in these Covid times. The service was very slow. We waited a long time before our waitress appeared and asked for water before anything else. I was surprised that no one brought us water as soon as we were seated. After we placed our orders, we had lots to talk about so didn't mind waiting for our food. When it came, we were busy eating and talking for a long time, but when I was ready for the check, no one was in sight. After 10 minutes, I thought there must have been a change of shifts, so I flagged another waitress to say I wanted the check. Several minutes later, our waitress came with the check.

    Service wasn’t great. We got there at 4:30, so it wasn’t crowded. I made a reservation online, and the hostess brought us to a table that was too small to fit our party. She admitted she didn’t look closely at our details. I had also put that we were celebrating a birthday, but decided to drop it. We had to ask 4 times to different people for a high chair. All the orders came out but mine. The waitress said the “ticket didn’t print,” but I got my pizza after everyone else had finished eating, including my toddler. She never offered to take it off the tab. OK food, horrible service.

    When looking for a healthy food restaurant we came across this one. Made reservations for Mothers Day and we’re absolutely thrilled with our decision. The food was amazing. The service impeccable and the organization of the operation was flawless. The ambiance was very enjoyable. We can’t wait to go back. We even got to chat briefly with the chef and he was a pleasure also. This is the place to go for a wide variety of healthy food options made with the best freshest ingredients! From gluten free, vegetarian and just generally delicious and healthy options! I highly recommend this restaurant!
