Great place to chill while waiting for friends you're meeting at Union Square - can buy things from the supermarket and bring up to eat.

We went here one early Sunday and we decided to get their Prime Rib plate in the Cafe and oh my gosh it was tender and so flavorful and the portions were more than I expected. Well worth the drive for us. We went back again in a few weeks and we weren't disappointed, great meal to have. There is... More

Love the selection of food, so I don't mind running in and picking up something quick. Would love to know when it isn't so busy and less hectic....

REALLY! I have convinced many of my friends that you can hang out at a grocery store on a weekend afternoon. Many a Saturday afternoon I have gotten a text, "going to Whole Foods?". There are 4 different places inside of the store to purchase lunch or dinner(from pizza to freshly prepared fish). Did I mention that there is beer... More

I visit this WF often and the restaurant offerings are always truly exceptional. The house smoked BBQ is great, as are some sandwiches at the sports bar. The atmosphere and food quality at the sports bar can't be beat by any other establishment in the area.

I specifically went to this Whole Foods to celebrate my niece's 17th birthday and have a crab cake sandwich for lunch! They are the best I have ever had, anywhere! The service was great, food delicious and we had a wonderful time!

I'm used to Whole Foods in NYC. Ok, space is cheaper in Virginia. This was an interesting experience as it was not overly crowded (mid evening hours) and during my shopping trip I stopped for a nicely prepared meal (poached fish, potatoes, salad and a glass of wine). My shopping cart, parked behind me was not in anyones way. There... More

I used to think it was funny that people ate out in a supermarket. Seemed like the most suburban thing you could do. Then my wife and I tried the seafood bar/restaurant at Whole Foods in the Fair Lakes area (while intending to shop for something to take home), and liked it so much we went back a couple weeks...

My husband, 3 children, and I frequent the seafood bar every few months and it never disappoints. The kids love the fried shrimp platter, and my son especially loves the clam chowder, which he says is his favorite clam chowder in the world. My husband and I cannot get enough of the scallops. They are so very juicy and are... More
