True Food’s seasonal menu emphasizes wholesome, seasonal ingredients with thoughtful preparations to highlight the natural health benefits and flavors of each ingredient. From thoughtfully crafted cocktails, such as the Citrus Skinny Margarita, made with fresh-pressed citrus and organic tequila, to nutrient-dense dishes like the Edamame Dumplings, Korean Noodle Salad, Ancient Grains with miso-glazed sweet potatoes, Grilled Fish Tacos and an antioxidant rich Flourless Chocolate Cake, True Food Kitchen’s menu celebrates variety and caters to every food preference with an assortment of delicious vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
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.
Super helpful wait-staff, fast service, fun atmosphere
Love True Food!!!
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.
I enjoyed my meal at True Food; clean eating at its best so satisfying... one of my favorite restaurants
Thank you for your review! We are so thrilled we are one of your favorites
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
Booked for lunch, busy and lively. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, a bit slow to start but excellent cold pressed juice and decent entrees, if a little bland - Sunrise Bowl and avocado toast.
Definitely recommend and will be back.
Thank you for choosing TFK!!
The food is nutritious and there’s a nice variety, but everything I’ve had there is too salty. The place is also very loud and it’s difficult to have conversations, even at a table for 2 or 4. Service is great.
Love True Food! Love the Ballston location in particular. Food and service always excellent.
Love the healthy menu at True Food. My friend and I shared the roasted Brussel sprouts as an appetizer. We both had the winter immunity bowl which was beyond delicious.... highly recommend this restaurant!
Thank you WIne4me!! We hope to have you back in soon!
Love this place! It was a little too loud (music could have been turned down a decibel or two) for comfortable conversation on Saturday night, but all four of us loved the food. The butternut vegan pizza was excellent, as was the cauliflower with dates and tahini. Tablemates enjoyed their entrees, as well; they had steak and chicken tacos and Korean noodles. Will return regularly.
Thank you Patty! We hope to have you back in soon.
I love true food kitchen. The food is reliably excellent. I like that they use in season produce and have simple dishes that are too complex for me to master at home. I highly recommend them for a healthy but delicious meal in a trendy clean vibrant environment. Service was also excellent with an eagerness to make recommendations based on the things I like. Thanks. See you soon
Cant wait to have you back!
Delish, healthy, perfect brunch!
Thank you for dining with us!
Headed to Ballston TF for the 4th time today since my previous visits were fantastic. Not sure what went wrong with today but the service was awful for our table of 5. Both our coffee and eggs took forever to arrive at our table and both were luke warm/cold. No one came by with coffee or water refills durint our visit. Servers were very forgetful and we had to ask for 2 -3x for items because they never came back w the requested item. Already done eating by the time our requested hot sauce arrived. Split checks were incorrect. Probably would try a different restaurant for brunch next time. Too bad bc they typically have great food.
Chrissy, Thank you for your review on your most recent dining experience . My Apologies that we missed the mark on great service with your party At your convenience, I would love to speak to you further about your visit on Sunday you may reach me at 703-527-0930 Thank you, Anne
Wonderful, attentive service with delicious and nutritious meals! I would highly recommend this and would love to go back soon!
Thank you Ashley!
This place is amazing!!!! I had heard good things and decided to go with my boyfriend for a date night dinner. The staff was incredible and very on top of everything. The cocktails are delicious and different than average. For the appetizers my boyfriend and I split the cauliflower. It was so good and surprising that it had no meat! I had the spaghetti squash entree and I would highly recommend it to everyone! Delicious and healthy meal with a beautiful setting and great staff.
Wonderful as always! This True Food Kitchen is the best one and I’ve been to several.
Good healthy food, but very loud.
Thank you Cat, and we appreciate the feedback on the loudness, so we can be more mindful Hope to have you back in soon
Good food, but cocktail prices were outrageous. Shocked to see an $18 charge for a plain old martini.
Great food - excellent staff - it's just way too noisy. My companion and I had to shout at each other to be heard across a small table. Everyone else was talking loud as well so I didn't feel conspicuous - but it was uncomfortable. I would go back - but I'd be sure not to bring my husband who is hard of hearing and would not enjoy it.
Healthy, tasty food. Quinn, the manager is great. Wonderful place to go if you have gluten allergies.
We enjoyed everything we ordered and also really liked the atmosphere. It is very clean and open. You are not on top of one another. I thought the Kale salad with added grilled chicken breast was delicious. VERY garlicky but I love garlic. And the beet and goat cheese flat bread was very fresh and delicious with mounds of arugula. Generously sized as well. That could be an entree. Our service was polite and efficient. We will be back.
I love all the True Food Kitchens I’ve been to, but this is my favorite! The restaurant is very well managed, the staff is friendly, and the food is extra tasty! It’s smaller and quieter than other True Food restaurants, too.
Thrilled to have this great new food venue. Everything tastes great. Service is super and very friendly. Just happy to have a super new place in the neighborhood.
I liked everything about this place. The drinks were spectacular and the food was fast and delicious and healthy. I had the chicken sausage pizza which was BOMB. Can’t wait to go back.
Dinner with a group of seven. Wait staff was friendly and the food was delicious. Not too noisy, so we didn’t have to shout to hear each other. Nice selection of wines. I’ll be back and I highly recommend it.
50th birthday party

Hostess did not realize both parties of reservations had checked on and left us sitting apart. Music was really loud. Food was okay
Great food and great service

Great vegan and vegetarian options
Thank you for dining with us!
True Food comes through again with a variety menu of wholesome entrees that appeals to all. And with appealing drinks and a hip and with it ambience. It’s been our go-to place in 2019 and a hit with our friends (of all ages and diets) every single time
Thank you for dining with us! Hope to have you back in soon!
A good solution for my vegetarian daughter’s family birthday lunch!
The food was truly fresh and delicious and the service was wonderful! A lovely evening!!
SO happy you enjoyed your service and food! We hope to have you back in soon!
Our server Wayne was excellent! He was attentive throughout the evening and went out of his way to make certain that my husband enjoyed his birthday celebration, even boxing up a complementary dessert to go, when we declined to order.
Thank you Gwenn! We will pass along to Wayne and hope to have you back in soon!
Excellent service, great food, too loud!
Thank you for Dining with us! And for the feedback on the music we will pay more attention, hope to have you back in soon!
