Had a reservation however, people who did not were able to get waited on first and actually were served before we even put in our order. Help is a problem however I think they just couldn't even keep track of the tables and people that were there. It was very disappointing because this is one of my favorite restaurants and I took my family which was their first time. Not sure if we would ever go back.

Awful service and food was made incorrectly. The restaurant was empty and we waited so long for a waiter that my husband got up and looked for one. We asked for sparkling water and he brought flat. We ordered drinks which he had a hard time with. My husband asked if they had a full bar and he said yes. So he ordered a rum and tonic. The waiter said he wasn't sure if they had rum. So my husband ordered a beer. The waiter came back and said they have "something called Bacardi". My husband was afraid at this point and stuck with the beer. 10 minutes later we still had no drinks. The waiter came over to ask for our order and we said we wanted our drinks first. He said the "beer tender" was still getting it. The bar tender was not doing anything and we could see the bar. He then went over to tell the bar tender. When we finally ordered, I ordered the Ancient Grain Bowl w/ Tofu. I ordered 1 extra vegan pesto on the side. Instead the meal was prepared with all sauces on the side. It was completely bland and dumping the sauces on it did not resolve it. I asked the person who delivered it to the table why it was that way and she said she didn't know and laughed. The waiter didn't come back for another 15 minutes during which time I gave up and dumped all the sauces on it and ate it. I have eaten that meal about 20 times at the Mosaic location and it was awful in comparison. I didn't want to complain b/c I had eaten 1/2 of it and I felt like the waiter couldn't handle it properly if I did. Also, there was no manager walking around or anyone else that looked like they cared. I have not only eaten at Mosaic TFK but others as well. This one has a long way to go to catch up to the food and service that the others share.

True Food is always consistently great. As well varied as they change the menu seasonally. They take everyday food and drinks and add a zest to them. It’s the only time I think of kale salad as a speciality meal.

This is a unique restaurant in that the menu is very different. Has lots of healthy bowls to choose from. The beverages are homemade and healthy too, no soda! The service is very good and the employees are all so nice and helpful! Everyone in our party enjoyed their entrees which were the teriyaki bowl, the poke bowl, banana pancakes, Korean noodles, avocado toast, and a spicy egg bowl. The limeades are our favorite drinks. Can't wait to return!

This place has gone straight downhill since opening. We are big fans of true foods and have supported the Virginia locations for years, frequently dining in or ordering takeout. I’m appalled at the level of service to which the new location, Reston, has quickly plummeted. I will not be going back.

The service is abysmal. We have been going here almost every week and the service (especially as they are closer to closing time) is awful. It seems unless you order everything when you sit down - drinks, appetizers and entrees - they will just forget about you for 15-20 minute blocks at a time. My husband had to go find someone to come to our table twice. There appears to be zero management there at any time. It’s left to a few 20 something girls and they couldn’t care less. It appears the waiter/waitress takes your order then everything is brought to your table by someone else. So again, unless you order everything at the same time, they will just forget about you. It’s not like this is mcdonalds; we are spending $120 bucks for 2 people and this level of service is just not worth it. Maybe hire a manager and put someone in charge during dinner hours.

The four of us had a wonderful Sunday lunch on 8/8/2021, out in the open air, enjoying the sunny sky (from the shade of the umbrella) and the breeze. The food was delicious, the fruit-based drinks were excellent, and the waitress was attentive but not intrusive, and very helpful.

Third time trying before we left for our return home. The server was very nice and engaged. Drinks still disappointing. expensive and small selection. The Dog Fish Head my husband wanted us unavailable though on the menu. The dry Miraval rose was served in a champagne glass but the waiter happily traded for a wine glass . The food was as expected. Hummus said it came with pita, but instead of warm Mediterranean pita it was small slices of cold tortilla wrap The hummus was tasty. The margarita pizza was good. The dessert a key lime avocado pie wasn’t too great, must have been frozen because it was hard to cut the crust. Mostly ok but very pricey .
