So, I order the same thing every time I go (due to food allergy), and when I received my meal wondered why there were only two tacos. In the past, weren't there three? I was with friends, so didn't want to nit pick... It was still delicious, but I did feel like I was gipped because the price was the same.

True Food Kitchen - Fairfax
Responded 20 hours ago

Thank you for the feedback, Mary, as we utilize it to make us a better establishment. For an extended period of time we offered the dish you are referring to. However, our corporate Chef team recently increased the amount of protein in each taco so we decided to remove one. We currently offer a "Taco add on" for a small additional charge. Call us when you plan on coming in and I will do whatever is necessary to get it to you that night. Looking forward to hearing from you soon! (571)326-1616

Don’t use the QR code to order on the app.
We ended up with food and drinks ordered by the previous occupants of that table!
The server and other staff were incredibly accommodating and we were not changed for the extra food and drinks which we enjoyed in addition to the food we actually ordered.

We had a party of 6 and the sever broke it down to 5 separate checks.

We had a great time and will be back

I love this place - everything is good but the Ancient Grains bowl is ridiculous (I always get it with salmon, and it's always been perfectly cooked). The new shrimp roll app is tasty (but arrived a little cold). The cauliflower app is a regular favorite too. Nice vibe, friendly service. No complaints.

We made a reservation for an outdoor table. When we arrived we were told that the outside tables are first come first reserve and that our reservation was only for an inside table. There were several empty outside tables. We were told that we would have to wait 45 minutes for an outdoor table. We didn't see any people waiting for the outside tables. We didn't want to wait so we sat at the bar. The entire time we were at the restaurant there were empty tables outside. Later in the day I received a message from Open Table to tell me that the restaurant canceled our reservation because we didn't show up. What a messed up operation.
