excellent choice for eating on the run, instead of going to a Restaurant. They offered an assortment of choices of soups, salads, hot and cold entrées. We had soup, bread, dessert and drinks, all for $36.00. In the middle of downtown, they have free parking with attendant and several checkout lines for speedy in and out.

Within an excellent is an exceptional sea restaurant! They have a regular menu, specials, and will prepare any sea food that they sell for a nominal fee. They prepare excellent oysters, scallops and a variety of fish. My favorite is a tremendous Bouillabaisse while my wife loves the fried oysters; however, everything that we have tried is delicious. There are... More

This is a review of the Sports Spot, a sports bar-type grill at the Whole Foods Market (for some reason, Trip Adviser does not allow separate reviews of the five or so eating establishments that are located within the Whole Foods complex). The Sports Spot serves the thickest, tenderest, juiciest burgers that I have tried in Northern Virginia. They use... More

This is the best Whole Foods location around. Their selection of food rivals that of a legitimate restaurant. Their breakfast buffet has a great selection of any breakfast food you could ever think of, plus an elaborate Indian breakfast selection that's wonderful. Prices are a bit high, but at Whole Foods that's par for the course.

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

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
