I love True Food kitchen and they always have such healthy and delicious options. This new location is as fabulous as the others. However, both times I have been there I have not been able to get my reward points because of a problem with the QR codes on the outside tables. It is only this location that I have issues with this. Very frustrating. They need to get this resolved!

This is my fourth visit to True Food, although the first one in Reston. The manager and wait staff were for friendly and accommodating. The butternut squash soup was divine, but the entrees came out about 2 minutes after the soup. My entree was cold and my husband’s was lukewarm. We asked for them to be taken back to the kitchen to be heated up. Meanwhile, I had the chance to finish my soup. The entrees came out lukewarm again. We decided not to say anything more and took most of the food home so we could warm it up at home. The chocolate cake was superb!!! When the bill arrived, they had charged each entree twice, adding another $35 to the bill. It was eventually corrected and we left with our carry out dishes. I think instead of warming up the food (Covid??), we were served a new entree.

The food at True Food Kitchen is always amazing! The menu selection changes periodically, but the food selection is always tasty and healthy. They have a wonderful outdoor patio that is dog friendly with plenty of room at the table for you and your pup. Servers are friendly and go above and beyond to provide outstanding service. Would highly recommend!

True Food has many excellent, tasty, and different menu choices that are heathy, often GF, vegan or vegetarian while at the same time, having choices for those more traditional eaters like my husband who wants his meat (for instance, they have a superb grass fed beef burger). I love the charred cauliflower and edamame dumplings, the bowls, the chopped salad and the alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink choices. They have done a great job in making their menu selections to appeal to families too. I don't understand why True Food hasn't caught on more in Reston except that they are one block off the main street. They deserve more patronage.

Had a reservation however, people who did not were able to get waited on first and actually were served before we even put in our order. Help is a problem however I think they just couldn't even keep track of the tables and people that were there. It was very disappointing because this is one of my favorite restaurants and I took my family which was their first time. Not sure if we would ever go back.

Awful service and food was made incorrectly. The restaurant was empty and we waited so long for a waiter that my husband got up and looked for one. We asked for sparkling water and he brought flat. We ordered drinks which he had a hard time with. My husband asked if they had a full bar and he said yes. So he ordered a rum and tonic. The waiter said he wasn't sure if they had rum. So my husband ordered a beer. The waiter came back and said they have "something called Bacardi". My husband was afraid at this point and stuck with the beer. 10 minutes later we still had no drinks. The waiter came over to ask for our order and we said we wanted our drinks first. He said the "beer tender" was still getting it. The bar tender was not doing anything and we could see the bar. He then went over to tell the bar tender. When we finally ordered, I ordered the Ancient Grain Bowl w/ Tofu. I ordered 1 extra vegan pesto on the side. Instead the meal was prepared with all sauces on the side. It was completely bland and dumping the sauces on it did not resolve it. I asked the person who delivered it to the table why it was that way and she said she didn't know and laughed. The waiter didn't come back for another 15 minutes during which time I gave up and dumped all the sauces on it and ate it. I have eaten that meal about 20 times at the Mosaic location and it was awful in comparison. I didn't want to complain b/c I had eaten 1/2 of it and I felt like the waiter couldn't handle it properly if I did. Also, there was no manager walking around or anyone else that looked like they cared. I have not only eaten at Mosaic TFK but others as well. This one has a long way to go to catch up to the food and service that the others share.

This is a unique restaurant in that the menu is very different. Has lots of healthy bowls to choose from. The beverages are homemade and healthy too, no soda! The service is very good and the employees are all so nice and helpful! Everyone in our party enjoyed their entrees which were the teriyaki bowl, the poke bowl, banana pancakes, Korean noodles, avocado toast, and a spicy egg bowl. The limeades are our favorite drinks.
