This was my 1st visit to True Food, cool place, I’ll will go again!
The table had a sanitized sign on it but it was clearly not clean - very uncomfortable dine in experience given the current environment
Delicious food, and healthy. Ate out on the patio. Felt "safe" and the server emphasized the "safety." Great experience.
Thank you for the stars!
For it not to have had many people in the restaurant, our waitress was kind of invisible even though she was very pleasant whenever she was present, and accommodating. If you like lemonade, order the peach tea as the flavor of peach is practically non-existent. As my stomach is very sensitive to acidic drinks like lemonade, I couldn't drink it and had to ask for a replacement, which turned out to be ice cold and very refreshing watermelon juice. (assuming it was fresh)
The two diminutive beef tacos were very good (meat used was top shelf as were ingredients) but the accompanying salad, also diminutive, was tasteless. For $19.00 plus tax and tip, I guess that's what you get nowadays.
This is my second visit and I still think the prices are a bit over the top for what you are served. Will I return? Yes, probably.
Great healthy dishes!
THANK YOU FOR THE STARS!
This was my first time experience at True Kitchen during "RONA" season. The restaurant staff was completely great and made me feel safe during these strange times. The food was amazing and I will definitely come back again.
Thank you for your review! We are so happy you had a great time with us
Probably the best place in the area for vegan options!!! The food is always the best with vibrant colors and taste.
Not to mention for healthy people to eat tasty food and great drink options!
The staff roll out the red carpet for whom ever comes to the door and make every person feel welcome!
We always recommend this place!
How can I get a True Food closer to my house???
Thank you Ray! We are so happy you enjoyed your experience with us!
True Food was great with Covid-19! They were extremely clean and sanitary. Hostesses were very clear with customers that they needed a mask to enter the restaurant without delay. Every other table was emptied with hand sanitizer and a note stating that the table was empty to social distance. In addition the hostess asked if a table they were going to seat us at was too close to the larger party. There were makers on tables that indicated the table was sanitized. Finally, they had a QR code to pay the bill so there was no exchange of money or credit cards. All in all it was so nice to be out and have a great meal at a restaurant that was serious about keeping their stakeholders healthy and safe.
Thank you so much for your review and kind words, we hope to have you back in soon!
Great outdoor space and attention to details re. distancing. Food was healthy and delicious and wine options great.
Thank you for joining us, hope to have you back in soon!
Tasty food that is healthy. Love the ancient grain bowl with salmon. Large serving with plenty of leftovers. Great sidewalk dining with umbrellas and distance from street.
Thank you, Lunch Gourmet!
We love the fresh, healthy selections. It's a little high priced for going regularly for us, but we've been there three times and have loved every visit and every food choice! Friendly managers and staff too!
Thank you Kathy!
Everyone was very nice. The food was great. We had to wait a bit for our lattes and the manager gave them to us for free. We will definitely come back.
Thank you for joining us! We hope to have you back in soon!
Great service. Friendly hostesses and waiters/waitresses. Clean food that is flavorful and filling. Love they provide plenty of Vegan options. Got the Butternut Squash Pizza and it was vegan and amazing!
Thank you for the stars!
The food was delicious and inexpensive, our widow table pleasant, and the waiter attentive. The seating is perhaps a little close. The person at the next table was able to overhear what I said to my friend and comment. She was being helpful, responding to a question I had asked about a particular ingredient but still...it made me wonder how much of our conversation could be heard. We were not speaking loudly. I will come to True Food Kitchen again, but go elsewhere if I want to have a private conversation.
Thank you for joining us! We hope to have you back soon!
Unique and delicious food, warm and friendly staff, and a fun environment.
Great, healthy options. Great drink options as well. Staff is friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend.
First, I requested specific seating which was available and they tried to seat me in an area where I requested not to be seated. It was a birthday celebration and at no time was that acknowledged by the host or the waiter. The waiter was very inattentive. He came to ask about the food when we were practically done eating. He brought my tea- no spoon, no sugar or anything. The service was bad. The concept of the food is better than the actual taste.

Excellent food and service. The pizza and edamame dumplings were great!
Thank you Neil!
Great food, very accommodating. Highly reccomend this restaurant for healthy eating!
All good. The acoustics, however, tend to make the place very loud.
HI Neil, thank you for the review, we appreciate the feedback! And hope to have you back in soon!
Thrilled to have this new restaurant in our neighborhood.
the food is great. service is wonderful and friendly.
So great to hear Eric! hope to have you back in soon!
Was our first time dining here. Really good food and great service.
I’ve gone to multiple locations of True Food and found this location had oversalted their food and the preparation was not the same quality. The service was also very slow and ultimately canceled my dessert because I watched my server take my order and get distracted taking orders from three other tables. I’m typically a fan of this restaurant but was disappointed I “broke” my rule of going to a chain restaurant when traveling. Doubtful I will do that again after this experience....

We both tried something new and they dishes were delicious. We did have some trouble hearing our waitress - it wasn't that it was too noisy - the acoustics were odd.
Yummy food. Very fresh. Did take a long time to come out...was told because a lot of takeout orders.
The food wasn’t great and no kid friendly options

That Ancient Grain bowl was one of the best dishes I’ve had in last couple of months.
Hooray!! thanks for the review
Squash pie was to die for. Enjoyed the Valentines prix fix: beautiful War of Roses cocktail, delicious fig & gorgonzola flatbread, tasty cauliflower polenta and the crazy good squash pie. Turkey burger also tasty. Very nice service as well. Will be returning.
Thank you for the stars!
I love that we can always find great variety and DELICIOUS choices within our dietary preferences and restraints (hubby GF, me vegan) it’s usually hard for us to agree on where to go, but if there is a true food near there’s no question! We also love bringing friends and family here anytime they are in town because the atmosphere is chill and it’s easy to carry on a convo while enjoying a great meal.
Hi Erin, Thank you for your review! We are so happy you have found such great delight in our restaurant and we hope to have you back in soon!
Super helpful wait-staff, fast service, fun atmosphere
Thank you for choosing True!
Love True Food!!!
Thank you for joining us!
Such healthy and delicious food! The bowls are the absolute best. Always enjoy returning but just know that it’s a bit loud and busy.
thank you for joining us!
I enjoyed my meal at True Food; clean eating at its best so satisfying... one of my favorite restaurants

Healthy tasty variety of food and lovely mix of cocktails and “mock”tails’
Thank you for your review, we hope to have you back in soon!
Delicious, healthy food and friendly servers! Give it a try!
Thank you for your review!!
Must try the Winter Immunity bowl! And of course the cauliflower is a must.
So glad you enjoyed our new Bowl! Hope to have you back in soon!
Fresh food, delicious preparation, yummy hot and cold teas. My new favorite lunchtime spot.
Thank you Beth, we hope to have you back in soon!
We have regularly at True Food Kitchen in Arlington. It is one of our favorite places for lunch after church Yesterday, things seemed off. The special of the day was a vegetable dish with Lion's Mane mushrooms, farro and a sauce. The sauce was cold, I was expecting hot. The farro was not to be found and the overall flavour of the dish was meh. I should have complained at the time, but we were needing to leave for other things.
Thank you for taking the the time to provide feedback on your most recent visit with us! We are always looking to improve and with reviews we are able too! We hope to have you back in soon Anne
