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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I love True Food Kitchen and have eaten there many times. Unfortunately today the food was not up to par. We ordered the Brussels sprout appetizer which was delicious and then I ordered the kale salad with steak. The salad had way too much lemon and the kale hadn’t had time become tender but the real issue was the steak. It was awful and inedible. It was tough, chewy and what I feel was an extremely poor quality cut of beef. It also was tasteless except for the rancid grease flavor it had from whatever it had been cooked in. I am never a person who complains but I did decide to mention these issues to the waiter. He did take the price of the steak off, which was a nice gesture but I’m hoping they will improve the quality and taste of the steak in the future. I did give a 5 star review for overall satisfaction because this is a great place, I’m just hoping that this issue isn’t indicative of the overall quality of the food going forward.
