Lots of choices. All Good!

Whether you want just a sandwich or a full meal or a slice of pizza or lovely cookies, or soup, or Asian or Indian or a salad, you'll find all that and more here. Food is fresh and good. I like the protein and two sides offerings as a take away for dinner. Portions are good (there is usually some... read more

Love the market but the attached restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. Food was boring and blah. Had to wait on yourself and pickup your own food and there is no intercom system. In a positive note the cheese platter was amazing!!!

I have some friends who have been telling me about this place for years! It's hard to find information about it on the Whole Foods website, but they do have a Facebook page where you can get hours and more information. When you enter into the grocery store, head to the very back right. If you look up, you can... More

Excellent choices for tasty and wholesome cuisines: Japanese, SW, seafood, lunch-plates, pizza and more. It even has a wine bar serving selection of excellent and affordable wine as well as artisan cheese.

Whoever planned this Whole Foods Market was a genius. The restaurant pods, interspersed with the actual grocery store is artfully and tastefully organized and decorated, but what's truly amazing is the great tasting food. Although I've had a couple great fish meals at the fish station, my favorite is the barbecue station. Northern Virginia has few BBQ restaurants, so when... More

Several choices here at Whole Foods including Seafood, BBQ, Cheese, Sushi, hot food corner, buffet (typically, salad, Indian, Chinese, American, a daily special, and a dessert bar), geleto station, and a sports bar. No tips are necessary here and they recommend not to do so. It is a fun place for a decent meal at a cheaper than restaurant with... More

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
