True Food Kitchen - Arlington, Ballston Quarter
Both the butternut squash soup and gluten-free pasta bolognese are delicious and healthy. Every staff members we interacted with are wonderful people. My only issue was the loud environment. We had difficulty talking to each across the table. Other than that it was a great dinner. We will definitely be going there again.
Excellent food and service. Not quiet by any gauge. Pricy but you pay for that fresh quality.
True Food is always a great choice! I had been there before, but this time our server told us about history/background of the menu. All dishes are geared towards an anti-inflammatory diet, ensuring you’ll feel even better after you leave. I definitely agree with that, and love dining at True Food!
Thank you Lindsey, we are so happy you enjoyed your experience with us and hope to have you back in soon!
I met a business partner for dinner, and True Food was the perfect venue. Our waitress, Erin, was delightful and gave us plenty of room for our business conversation. She also made excellent appetizer and entree recommendations. Because we dined on a Monday night, it was quieter than usual. Overall, I love True Food and I happily return on a regular basis!
Thank you Monika!
Yummy and innovative menu, as usual! Love the winter selections and the regular options as well. Thank you
thank you Julie!
Amazing edamame dumplings we had 4 different dishes. All were superb in color phenomenal in flavor and some nice playing as well. Truly the place for a great meal
thank you for joining us! We hope to have you back in soon!
The food was good, especially the green sauce made of cilantro, the waitress was fantastic, but the noise volume made it very difficult to have a good conversation.
THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING TRUE FOOD!
Absolutely love the food! My favorite is the Ancient Grain Bowl. My friends favor the salads and sandwiches. The flourless chocolate cake comes with coconut ice cream! Yummy! We shared the dessert which was more appropriate after a hearty lunch.
THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING TRUE!
Eating at True Food Kitchen always leaves you feeling great! The ingredients are so fresh and healthy! There are a great number of vegetarian and vegan options.
Thank you for choosing TFK!!
Delicious food, excellent service...first visit to this location...just as good as Wisconsin Ave location!
thank you Scott!
All great! But a little too loud. Music should have been softened. Or maybe some noise absorption panels
thank you Janner!
I’m not sure why we put notes in open table that it’s a birthday or celebration. Restaurants and servers – well actually, it’s the hostess to blame for this one. Do not relay it to the waitstaff.
They forgot our birthday request. Food was way too salty! I had the Seabass and all I could taste was a layer of salt on the fish. I ended up taking my futon because I could not finish it there. Just a pet peeve but the waiter was clearing the table before all of us were done – especially us ladies. Please wait until everyone is done eating then clear the table.
We had a great time, our waiter was very cheerful and the food was great!
Beautiful place, great atmosphere
Grabbed dinner with a friend on a Saturday night. The place fills up quick so definitely would recommend a reservation. Food and service were great - prices are a little expensive but it’s worth it for the quality!
Food was fine. Service was horrible. We ordered an appetizer, asked about twice, then about main courses arrived and the waiter said “the kitchen is backed up, your appetizer will be out soon .” We cancelled if. What a ridiculous excuse.
My wife finished her meal before me. Waiter took her plate (good) then asked if she wanted to see the dessert menu while I was still eating (bad).
Then I finished and he brought the check.
A few minutes later, he brought the dessert menu.
When I complained and gave him feedback he said “what can I do to make you happy.” He didn’t offer anything. Manager never came by to apologize. When we paid he said “If you ever decide to come again, dessert is on me.” How’s that supposed to work without a coupon of some sort.
He was the most inept waiter I’ve ever had. And inept management for not coming by to apologize.
Asia, our server, was great
I absolutely love True Food Kitchen. The food is very tasty and healthy. I love the assortment of teas and drinks. Love, love the squash pie. I have dined at True Foods on a number of occasions and I have never been disappointed. I love the Ballston Commons location. It is very convenient and parking for $1 for 3 hours makes it so much more attractive. I will return again and again.
What a fantastic place to grab a bite to eat! My friends and I spent way too much time searching for a vegan-friendly restaurant, but True Food made it totally worth it. Good energy, good food and excellent service.
Great food, good service and pleasant atmosphere. One of my favorite health conscious restaurants.
Food was very good and fresh! Love health options...our waiter was awesome! Very friendly and professional, and available!
Expensive but delicious
Enjoyed lunch with a friend. Food was tasty, healthy and came out quick. Service was top notch.
Sara was fantastic!!
Totally worth going. Everything the 6 of us had was different and good. Great service!
Great service, food. I have Avocado Allergies, and didn't remember seeing that Avocados were part of my dish. Otherwise it was just awesome dining experience.
Amazing dinner experience. Food and service were outstanding
Service needs to pick up dishes when one is done and also don’t ask a customer to pass you the plates you need to pick them up please it is general etiquette. Food is great attitude is good and pleasant. Atmosphere is good.
Good food for everyone.
Nice outside table and yummy food
True Food reported me to Open Table to failing to honor a reservation that I did honor. I even said I had a reservation upon arrival.
Food was okay, but not well-described on the menu.
We really enjoyed the great food, drinks, and service! We look forward to our next visit.
The children’s menu was not impressive. It was very limited and zero breakfast options.
What? No eggs? No waffles? No bacon?
Fun place for an evening meal. Lots of noise so if you are looking for a quieter environment I would avoid this restaurant. Service was very cheerful and helpful
I’ve been to True Food in Ballston three times and have always had a wonderful experience. Tonight in particular, after leaving and probably being about a block away, our server came running up behind us with my sweater that I accidentally left on the back of my chair. He really didn’t have to do that, but he must truly be a kind and caring person. Always great to see positivity in the world! Looking forward to going back soon and hopefully being able to say thanks again.
We got greeted and seated pretty quickly on the patio as requested. It took well over 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged that we had been seated. Once our server arrived she had a great smile and took our drink and appetizer order. We have dined plenty of times at True Foods and knew exactly what we wanted. Service was slow - our appetizer came out almost 10 minutes before our drinks. Once our drinks arrived we had completed the appetizer. Dinner came quickly after our drinks but when we asked the food runner for some water and hot sauce we never saw them again or our server. She only came and checked on us about 15 minutes after our entrees arrived. We asked again for hot sauce and waters. She quickly came back with it. Food was delicious but it seemed like the server was more interested in chatting with the bartender than making sure we had what we needed.
The food was good, although the kale guacamole was pretty bland. Our waitress was very nice and did a good job. Only wrinkle was that the kitchen finished making our appetizers about a minute before our entrees, so everything we ordered arrived at nearly the same time.
First time to this location. Food and service as good as any other TF i've been to
