They originally seated our party of 6 at a round table that seated four comfortably, five with a tight fit. Said they wouldn't seat us elsewhere but did when we started to leave.
The kale salad had way, way too much vinaigrette on it. Became massively bitter and inedible.
Service was slow.
Drinks sat at the bar for at least 15 minutes.
In spite of all this, would still eat there again - we've eaten there before and liked it. The place was extremely busy and they might have been short staffed.
The space was big, open, and attractive. Portions were small but it wasn't majorly overpriced. The server was very friendly but might have been new. There was some confusion about our checks and service was slow refilling coffee and waters, etc.
Great service and food! Staff is very courteous and respectful. I appreciate the seasonal menu.
Like mocktails. Wish had more breakfast- like choices.
Bring back menus.
Hello, Thank you for your 5-star review! Menus are still available upon guest request. Just ask your server or hostess. Look forward to seeing you again shortly.
Great food and nice atmosphere.
Hi Almazif, Thank you for the nice feedback! Glad you enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks
We often have dined for lunch at True Food Kitchen and enjoyed the experience. The food is never great, but always reasonably satisfying and offers a pleasant atmosphere. However, yesterday we were stunned that none of the staff even made a pretense of masking up - not the hosts, servers or kitchen staff. It clearly looked like the restaurant policy, not accidental inattentiveness by staff. I checked the Fairfax County Heath Department guidance and it appears that this True Food Kitchen location is way out of compliance. I often have recommended Tue Food Kitchen to friends - but sadly no longer.
Hi Swatt, Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad yo hear you enjoy our atmosphere and food. Please give me a call at your earliest convenience, I would love to go over our mask policy with you. Thanks 571-326-1616
Hello, Thank you for the 5-star review!! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
I love all of the vegetarian options but it was so overpriced for how much food you get. Two pancakes with nothing else is $11. And $6 for one cup of tea? Kinda crazy.
I like the decorations and style but because there aren’t any dividers or anything in such a huge space that it is very loud. It was too loud to have conversation at a normal volume.
The food options were great, tasted great, and service was good considering how busy it was.
Hi Kara, Thank you for your feedback! I'm glad to hear you love all our vegetarian options, the food and your service. I'm sorry you feel some of brunch items/ drinks are a little pricey, we use fresh, healthy, organic ingredients in all of our dishes. I will send this feedback to our corporate office,. Hope to see you again soon.
The food took awhile to come out.
Hi Harris, Thanks for your feedback! I'm sorry your food took awhile to come out. I would love to offer you a gift card and invite you back. Please give me a call asap. 571-314-4544
My food was not good
Hi KristineG, Thanks for your feedback. I'm so sorry you did't enjoy your meal. Maybe you just ordered the wrong thing. I would love to give you a gift card and invite you back for an excellent dining experience. Please give me a call at 571-326-1616
Our server was great, but the bar service was very slow in getting our drinks to the table. Timing of appetizers and entrees were spot-on despite being so busy. The new Panang Curry was good, but the components need work. Wish it could have had a bit more of the forbidden rice to soak up the wonderful sauce. The chicken was dry and didn’t taste fresh. The chicken was obviously just an add-in because it didn’t absorb the flavors of the curry.
Hi PatriciaD, Thanks for your feedback! I'm glad to hear you had great service. I'm sorry you entree was not up to your standards. You can always ask for more forbidden rice on the side. I will share this review with the entire management team so we can improve. I would love to offer you a gift card and invite you back. Please give me a call back asap. 571-314-4544
farro and quinoa was strongly flavored with vinagarette, not good with the salmon.
Hi MBSB, Thanks for your feedback. Next time you come in, we can substitute another side or vegetable with the salmon. Please give me a call, I would love to invite you back! 571-326-1616
Great location in Mosaic, very fast kitchen, I think our flatbread appetizer was out in like 5 min.
Hi Brian, Thanks for the 5-star review! Glad to hear you like our location and enjoyed your flatbread. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
The food is not truely as healthy as I had hoped. While on a alkaline detox,, there were really only a few items on the menu that I can eat without bread or cheese or meat/fish. But still a good healthy eating option.
Hello, Thanks for your feedback. Our menu dishes are made to order, so we are more then happy to accommodate most needs for our guests. In the future please let a manager know when you arrive and we will be more then happy to find some thing on the menu that you will love. Please give me a call with any questions. Thanks 571-326-1616
The food was delicious and nice knowing you’re getting a healthy meal, out. A bit noisy and smaller portion sizes if you’re very hungry.
Hi, Thank you very much for your feedback. Glad to here you enjoy the food. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Eva was outstanding! She was attentive, knowledgeable of the menu and very engaging. Very happy with this meal!
Incredible food, as always, and very friendly, attentive staff. I just wish you could reserve for outdoor specifically.
Hi Evar, Thanks for the feedback. I'm so glad to hear that our staff was attentive and the food was incredible. Sorry unfortunately we cant reserve the patio due to our guests sitting outside for long periods of time and we cannot quote a wait accurately . Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Perfect sitting outside! Food & drinks were all excellent!
Hello, Thank you for your 5-star review! Glad you enjoyed your entire dining experience! Look forward to seeing you again soon. We seat the patio year round.
I love the VEGAN options!! Thank you for this. I eat there at least once a week. Also thank you for the new vegan cheeseburger.
Hi Norma, Thank you for your 5-star review! Your very welcome. We have a ton of vegan options. The vegan cheeseburger is one of my favorites. BTW our menu does change seasonally, so look our for great additions. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great food! I had the grass fed burger with kale salad and both were so good! So much flavor
Hi GWUNP, Thanks for the 5-star review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the Grass fed burger with kale salad. Definitely a staple here at True Food Kitchen. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
On the pricey side for the area, but food was very good and service was excellent. Pretty place too.
Hi NYgirl, Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the food & service. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Excellent food and great service!
Hi Oasis, Thank you for your 5-star review! I'm glad to hear you had excellent food and great hospitality. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks
This remaining one of my favorite restaurants. I have several food allergies and I know that they will already have items on the menu that I can eat, or they can accommodate changes easily (and willingly). Plus the food and the service is always top notch.
Hi MelanyeC, Thank you for your 5-star review! I'm so glad that you trust TFK for all your dietary restrictions and allergies. We love to accommodate guests that have sensitivities.We take pride in our food being made from scratch, so you can modify most of the menu. We look to seeing you again soon.
Very good service.
I like the food.
Unfortunately, I can only meet a girlfriend there. My husband hates the food.
It’s really too bad.
Hello, Thank you for your 5-star review! I'm glad to hear you enjoy the food and the service. Let your husband know that our menu changes seasonally so there may be something for him on the winter menu. Hope to see you again soon.
Had a great time with the girls.
Incredible! The butternut squash pizza was delicious and I loved the brussel sprouts for my starter. Will definitely be returning!
Hello, Thank you for your 5-star review! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your Butternut Squash Pizza & the Brussel Sprouts. Those are definitely a few of our Fall favorites. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks
Usually True Food doesn't disappoint but this time I am sad that the food was not the best. Hopefully this was an anomaly.
Hey DNice, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that your food was not up to your standard. I would love to hear more about your experience and invite you back. Please give me a call back at 571-326-1616. Thanks
The food was almost inedible but I ate it because I was very hungry. My fish was way over cooked. I couldn’t even cut the three Brussels sprouts they deigned to serve and as for fennel, there was no fennel. The place was so loud I had to shout to be heard. I have no complaints about our server she was helpful and very professional.
Hello, Thank you very much for your feedback. I'm glad to hear that you were wowed by our service and hospitality. I'm very sorry that your fish was overcook, and your Brussel Sprouts were not desirable. I would love to reimburse you for these items or invite you back for something else. Please give me a call back at your earliest convenience. Thanks
....only criticism is that what was on the menu as Grilled Chicken Avocado Wrap in home made pita was actually in a tortilla.
Hi Chuck, Thank you very much for your feedback. Only way we can improve. Sorry to hear about your Grilled Chicken Wrap being prepared improperly. I would love to invite you back. Please give me a call at 571-314-4544. Thanks again
With the reservation we were seated right away. The waiter was very attentive and was able to answer all of our questions. Beautiful place with amazing food. Was a little loud but will definitely be back to try more items!
Hello, Thanks for the 5-star review! Glad to hear your waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Hope to see you again soon to try more of our seasonal options. Thanks
Amazing, healthy food with lots of plant based options. Love the drink selection, too!
Hello AgneseV, Thanks for your 5-star review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your dining experience. We have a bunch of healthy options, food and drinks, available seasonally. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks
Great service and good food.
Hello, Thank you very much for your 5-star review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your entire dining experience. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
I am a big fan of True Foods, primarily because of their tasty vegetarian choices - and outdoor seating. Unfortunately, my last visit was very disappointing. We had a server that didn't seem interested in well, serving us! The table next to us had to chase her down for their check. We asked for water - twice before receiving it. We asked for separate checks and didn't get them. We waited a very long time to be noticed and to place our order and receive our food. Our waiter did not seem to care or apologize for any of the errors or delays. Maybe this is the "new normal" with waitstaff leaving the industry. If so, I will find another restaurant to frequent.
All good dishes were cold to include pizza.
Hello, Thanks for your feedback. I'm so sorry the food was cold. Please give me a call back so I can hear more about your experience and invite you back for another visit. 571-326-1616
Food as always was very good, but even seated outside it was beyond loud where my friends & I could hardly hear each other.. Don't try to pay with their app it doesn't work!
Hi Ingeniusone, Thanks for your feedback. I'm very glad you enjoyed all the food. Next time you are here please ask for a manager and we will be more then happy to walk you through the Onedine steps. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks
Food was fine but nothing special and veryfew of the staff wore masks
HI CatherineA, Thank you very much for your feedback. I'm sorry that you found the food subpar. Please give me a call and I would love to go over some other great options that you may like and go over out mask policy. Thanks 571-326-1616
Entire staff to include the waiter were outstanding. The flourless chocolate cake, for dessert was fabulous!
Hi Michelew, Thank you for your 5-star review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your flourless chocolate cake and your entire dining experience. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks
We made a reservation on line for an outside table and our table was given to someone else. Despite this fact, the table was given to the other party. The host offered us a free appetizer for the inconvenience; however, the appetizer was never provided. We had to remind the waitress several times to bring our beverages.
Hello, Thank you very much for your feedback. Please give me a call at your earliest convenience, I would love to invite you back and offer you a gift card to allow us to change that experience. Also outside seating is on a first come first serve basis. Look forward to speaking with you. Thanks 571-326-1616
It was so nice to sit outside. Would have preferred to not be right by the door. The food was amazing! Our server was very personable and offered good suggestions.
Hi Kimberly, Thank you for your 5-star review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your entire dining experience. Moving forward, please talk to a manager when you arrive, and we will be more then happy to accommodate seating preferences, as long as the patio is not on a wait. Hope to see you again soon
