True Food Kitchen - Fairfax
The plus was the social distance enforcement due to the virus going around

Service was great; we had a friendly and informative server, and food came out in a timely manner. The edamame dumplings are to die for, and the butternut squash pizza was delicious. We tried several other entrees, and none failed to deliver! I don't always do well at places with all organic and farm to table ingredients because I worry I won't know what I'm ordering (let's face it, the ingredients on the menus often need to be googled if that's not your typical dietary choice), but there was little to no struggle here. Also, if you've never had an oat milk cappucino, you're missing out!
AlishaP, thanks for sharing the love! I loved reading about your experience and appreciate you taking the time to let us know how you feel. My team will be so happy to read your kind words, I can’t wait to share this with them. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks,
The family was not too impressed with this spot. The food was not amazing.

My husband and I frequent this location since there are a challenge finding vegan restaurants in the area, that has an open kitchen. The experience literally left a bad taste in our mouth and the one of the people sitting around us when I found 5 long pieces of long hair in our pizza. The women sitting next to me found hair in her Detox Retox Mimosa and the couple to the right of us were freaked out. We had already complained about the cleanliness of our dishes and how there was still food on our silverware, and they were dirty. The water was the only thing I felt ok with, but this place really needs some housekeeping. We are in the middle of a coronavirus, and not keeping up with housekeeping and cleanliness is the last thing a restaurant should have at this time. We used to love this place, but there needs to be a revamp or new training. I do not suggest it here. This experience really left a bad taste in our mouths

Everything was fabulous from the food to the server. Tulsi tea is still a favorite of mine!
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Hope to see you again soon.
i was trying to have a business meeting. We seated near the kitchen. We could hardly hear the conversation.
Very good and popular restaurant in the Mosaic District.
Thanks for the review!
My new favorite place! Food is fantastic, servers are great, and the hosts are warm and inviting. I recommend True Food Kitchen to all of my friends!
Thank you Brittany! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
My asian bowl was a great idea but way too salty. It was hard to enjoy the taste of the vegetables because they were drenched in salty soy sauce:(
Thanks for the review and feedback of your dish. We will check the recipes but by all means ask for light sauce or on the side which we can absolutely accommodate you for.
Seated quicky with friendly service. Food very good. Noise level high. Background music and reaturant wall/ ceiling structure make for noisy environment.
Thank you for the review, happy that you were satisfied with the food and service. Will take other comments under consideration.
I live True Food but my meals are always soo salty. It’s too much!
thank you for the feedback and the review. We will follow up with prep team but also feel free to request no ADDED salt. We do not add that much anyway but if wont hurt.
My favorite restaurant. Tasty food. Clean and excellent service. Best key lime pie I have ever had. (They only have it when in season) also quinoa pancakes are my kids favorite! If i could give it ten stars I would
Thank you so much for he great feeback!
Though we had reservations, our table of three was placed next to the kitchen and cleaning area. The restaurant noise level was compounded by the kitchen noise.
The menu was outstanding and the wait staff delightful. Have to weigh the wonderful menu against the noise level and possible poor seating when making reservations for a business-oriented meeting.
Thank you for the review, please feel free to ask for other seating in the future should you feel unhappy with it. Appreciate the comments
Great menu, our party had fish tacos, quinoa bowl, and the lasagna and all were delicious.
Thanks for the review and taking the time!
Unique and tasty meals. Loved the mixture of ingredients. Great ambiance when not overwhelmingly crowded, then noise level and close spacing can be distracting. Service was good. Had to wait an unusual amount of time for initial service but once started very attentive.
Thank you for the kind words! We will look into the timing of the initial greet, and make sure we are perfect for you next time! We look forward to seeing you soon!
Great flavor and lots of options for most types of dietary preferences.
Thanks for the review Mary!
Awesome, innovative food. And healthy too. Great cocktails. Buzzing
Hi Lani! Thank you for the kind words! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
This place is amazing and highly recommended restaurant. The food is always prepared well and there are choices for any and all pallets. Just go, you won't regret it!
Thank you for the kind words! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
liked the atmosphere, server was nice and courteous.
food was below par, sweet potatoe hash was cold, yes cold...
one of the orders was the grass fed burger, requested medium cooked, we got it way over well done..
couldn't eat it (they did remove charge, but one of us left without eating)
not what was expected at all...
would not go back
Hi Mido- Thank you for the feedback. I am sorry the food was not to your liking! If you wouldn't mind reaching out to us at your earliest convenience, we would love to get more information from you so we can improve. Thank you!
Noisy but great food. I appreciated that the calories were on the menu.
Thank you! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
True Food is a favorite of ours! I do wish that they would bring back the TLT on the menu. I actually crave the tempeh!!!
Thank you for the review, hope to see you again soon!
This was our second time here and we loved it! Service is fast and responsive (our waitress gave great recommendations), the drinks and food were delicious, and we loved the fact that everything is healthy. We will definitely be returning!
Thank You Natalie for the review!
Always a wonderful meal with interesting menu choices. The Valentine’ s prix fixe was perfect.
Thank you! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
Interesting combination of dishes, nice atmosphere
Hi Alexander! Thank you for the kind words! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
Food was very good but the main dish came before we had barely started the appetizer. Additionally, the table was so small everything didn't fit, almost knocked the plant and a wine glass off the table.
Hi Adrienne- Thank you for the feedback. I will discuss timing importance with the rest of the team, and make sure we improve! We are glad you enjoyed your food, and look forward to having you back in again soon!
One of my new favorite restaurants! So many innovative, fresh plant-based meal options.
Thank you Nicole! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
The food is great for everyone, but especially for people who want to eat as healthy as possible. I love the turkey burger and the sweet potato hash is so delicious. I was disappointed that they removed goat cheese from the menu as that is an option for lactose intolerant people. The grass-fed burger is just as delicious as the turkey burger. Service is excellent. The only negative with the ambiance is that the two top tables are set so close together, it's actually hard to walk in between the tables to get to the seat. Also, with the tables so close together, when it's a full restaurant, it can be a little loud. Overall, I love that this restaurant cares about the source of the food, only uses the healthier oils and ingredients, and is very accommodating for any special diet need.
Hi Billie! Thank you for the kind words! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
Great Valentines Day Meal
Thank you! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
Thank you for the shout out!
Our server Beck was wonderful. Loved, loved, loved the Fig and Gorgonzola flatbread and the Immunity Bowl!
Thank you for the kind words! We will be sure to let Bek know! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
Service was inattentive and the quality of the food was mixed. The grass fed burger was overcooked and dry. We’ve had better experiences at this restaurant.
Hi Buddy- Thank you for the feedback. I'd love to get some more information from you about your visit. Please reach out at your earliest convenience. Thank you!
Received the wrong drink and my quinoa burger didn’t have avocado on it, so it felt crazy expensive for what it was. I left extremely hungry still after eating a little bit of quinoa with lettuce for $19. Fail. The restaurant was super busy so my friend and I didn’t want to bother putting in any complaints, we’ve worked in restaurants and know it happens sometimes.
Hello! Thank you for the feedback. We want to make sure our guests thoroughly enjoy their time with us, and we would love to be allowed the chance to impress you! Please reach out to me at your earliest convenience: lranieri at truefoodkitchen. Thank you!
Beautiful, wide-open space with vibrant decor. One never feels crowded regardless of how busy it gets. Food is wonderful, comprising a healthy, plant-focused alternative to the standard American fare of meat, cheese, and fried items. Service was extremely friendly and attentive.
Hi Neil! Thank you for the kind words! We look forward to having you back in again soon!
Food is excellent but drinks are a bit pricey.
This is our go-to restaurant in the Mosaic district.
We tried some new selections. All were phenomenally delicious.
avocado, cilantro pesto, pumpkin seed, aleppo & house-made pita chips.
Coconut Sea Bass with Spicy Panang Curry
sweet potato, green bean, bok choy, rainbow carrot, thai basil, coconut curry shrimp broth.
Our server, Arezou, is knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. She has served us before and is consistently awesome. We value her recommendations.
Thank you for your kind words about True Food Kitchen. We are committed to providing unique quality and flavors that you will enjoy and hopefully keep you coming back. We look forward to serving you again soon. Gratefully, True Food Kitchen
Everything was very good! I don’t like being crowded in on those small tables for two down the center of the restaurant. The rest of the restaurant was practically empty and they tried to sandwich me into a table with no privacy. I asked to be moved.
They always do it and those are the worst seats in the restaurant.
Hello Karen, I'm glad the team was able to accommodate your request. Thanks for the review.
Perfect for health conscious diners who still want great tasting food!
Thank you for the review, hope to see you again soon.
Great spot to meet friends!
thanks for taking the time the leave you comment.
Great food but don't expect a quiet dining experience. Noisy and busy.
Thank you for the review, sorry if things were a bit noisy during your visit. Our patio is often more quiet. Maybe give that a try on a return visit. Hope to see you again soon.
Great food and attentive service. The restaurant was busy and noisy.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. Hope to see you back again soon.
