Had dinner last night with friends at the Sports Spot attached to the Whole Foods. It was a bit crowded but we were able to order our food and take our seats. Depending on what you ordered it was either fairly fast or very slow. Those of us who ordered burgers waited a good 15 minutes. I had the Italian... More

This place is great. I stopped here on my way to Washington Dulles airport for purchasing some health foods and have lunch. The seafood cafe looks very stylish and serves very good food for reasonable prices. I ordered the jumbo lump crab cake with nice fries (skin on), tasty sauce and salad - excellent. Other dishes I saw delivered to... More

This is the best and largest Whole Foods in the Northern Virginia area. It is the newest to my knowledge. The store itself is large with a great selection of organic produce and groceries. The have one of the largest seafood counters I have seen in recent memory. They have a seafood bar that in addition to their regular menu... More

My wife and I occasionally stop in for dinner and shopping for groceries. This time we were returning from a three day trip to NY and didn't want to cook after driving 7 hours in traffics. My wife picked a fresh piece of Halibut and I had the Scallops. We both had the roasted potatoes and fresh greens salad. The... More

This is probably the best venue for fresh seafood and price in the county. They also have areas for sushi and general food (with several tv's for sports in this area and beer) and a patio dining area where on the weekends there is live music. On Wednesdays it is Oyster night with oysters $1 each. Also try the bouillabaisse... More

There is a choice of a salad bar, with LOTS of veggies and varieties to put in your salad, a smaller hot bar, and a deli section. The food is always good. I would give it five stars, but due to the size of the facility, the menu is not as large as other Whole Foods I have seen and... More

So, we eat a salad for lunch or dinner and had no idea until we were on the way home from the airport on a Sunday morning, and there it was! Breakfast was just awesome! Priced by the pound, along with the salad bar, the breakfast burrito with all of the fixin's was a real value! Oh yeah, they had... More

We stayed in Fairfax while visiting D.C. and this Whole Foods came highly recommended. We have a whole foods here in Ottawa but it's nothing like this one. I couldn't believe the number of prepared food vendors they have within this grocery store. I remember a Pizzaria, a general buffet, a Sushi and Ramen place, Sandwiches, Burgers and BBQ! What...

This is no ordinary Whole Foods. The three cafes with separate stream and cold food tables are like no other that I have visited! We ate at the Seafood Cafe. I had scallops with a salad and rice for $15. Draft beer (some gluten-free) and wine are available. Fresh food and friendly service at an affordable price--that's a great mix!

Very dirty & unkept, chicken from buffet was not edible. It was SO dry and chewy nobody in my family could eat it. Very disappointed this is the first Whole Foods that I've had a bad experience at. Gross gross gross. And a waste of 50 bucks on lunch.
