Food was tasty and flavorful. Chef actually came to our table and introduced himself. Our server, Ashley, was personable and efficient. Great experience!!!

This was our third visit to Truva - Virginia Highland and the energy certainly has increased. It was very busy on Saturday night which was great to see. Our food was very good - whole grilled bronzing and a lamb kebab. Service was good considering how busy they were but it did take a little too long to get our bottle of wine delivered. Overall a good experience. Give it a try if you’re looking for well executed Mediterranean cuisine.

Service was a little rushed and then they were points where there were no service, Then we would be rushed again. The ambience was OK it could be a lot better. But the food was spectacular.

I love the atmosphere and the bread is to die for. My boyfriend and I did a trio of dips and split a kabob and we were both full. My new favorite place.

Nice addition to the neighborhood. I've had the trout and the salmon and I definitely recommend both. The mezze platter could be a complete meal. Nice live music when we were there on a Friday. Not sure if it's every weekend.

Truva has a great brunch menu--our party had 4 different dishes and all were delicious. No wait for a table Saturday around 10:30. Highly recommend.

The food was just ok, nothing special. Price points were high for the quality of the food, nothing was bad but it was not that special.

Fantastic food and fantastic experience overall! We had the falafel, Truva dumplings, and the mixed Kabob for two, and they were all out of this world! Definitely will go again to try out the rest of the menu and highly recommend everyone to try it!

the customer service was over the top. i have one daughter that is vegan and one that won't eat a vegetable and a vegetarian husband. i eat what doesn't eat me first. the person that read my reservation, called me to ask questions about our dietary needs. what the...., that was amazing. the restaurant is lovely and contemporary and the tables are spaced nicely, the ambiance is pleasant and the noise is very low. our waiter was more than accomodating and the food was great for the vegan and good for everyone else. i highly recommend Truva and can't wait to go back on a non-holiday. the menu is loaded with lots of interesting options.

Beautiful and warm interior. Great service and recommendations were generally spot on. Food was good, but not great. Hoping will improve some. Not much of a crowd on Saturday which is concerning for it's survival.

Very good good, excellent server who was very attentive. We sat outside and it was a strange vibe in the neighborhood that night due to a halloween bar crawl in Va-Hi. I will definitely be back!

Food was outstanding - hardest part was trying to decide what to order! We got a selection of hot and cold mezze for the table then shared the short ribs and mixed grill. The grilled chicken was amazing! We’ll definitely be back!

This was our first time to Truva and it was just wonderful. The restaurant has a great vibe to it and there is different seating configurations for everyone. I had just mezze which included the hummus (delicious but needed more favor), falafel (Excellent!), tabbouli (great) and stuffed grape leaves (so delicious). My companions had the lamb stew which was so tender and delicious with homemade bread baked on top. The other person had the chicken kebabs which were juicy and had a nice charcoal flavor. The white wine list by the glass (and by the bottle) needs improvement. We enjoyed it and will be back!

Great place for small plates. Menu continues to evolve and has become pretty delightful.

Servers are earnest but need training. Ours took half of our desert order (table of five) and started to walk away. Oh dear.
