Warm family atmosphere and delicious food made with love!

We moved here this June and ordered a greek salad and gyro sandwich to go. It was delicious! Since then we have returned often and all of our out of town guests have Vaso's on their "to do while in DC" list! Their seafood pasta is loaded with mussels, calamari, and shrimp.

Went to Vaso's for a business lunch. No crowd to speak of mid-day. The cafe is in a re-purposed BBQ joint. So unless you approach from the Powhatten Street side, you never see the Vaso's signage. Some off-street parking. The menu is Greek/Mediterranean. Servers are friendly but not so quick. Not slow but not quick. The food was OK. Not... More

Mediterrean food under a neon pig... Vaso's Kitchen on Powhatan has never disappoints. It's one of my top 3 places in Alexandria.

My wife and I have walk by Vaso's many times but never went in to eat until last night. We were blown away by the service, quality of food, portion size and price. Inside it is nice a relaxing with what looks like a large staff to keep things moving quickly. I love chicken francese, and I feel they have... More

I live very close to Vaso's Kitchen, and so my car drives me there on the way home from work as a delightful end to a grueling, fast-paced work day. I love their food so much that I purposefully make my weekly carry-out pit-stop the highlight of my week (except for sleeping in on Saturday and Sunday mornings!). My favorites... More

We choose this restaurant because of the ratings on trip advisor. The food was good, but a little pricey. Our salad was very small, but tasty and fresh. Our chicken entree was good, but a little greasy.

Vasos Kitchen is every bit as excellent as Vasos Bistro, with a broader menu. The bruschetta was delicious, with each flavor of tomatoes, garlic and basil distinctive. I don't know why Greek bread is so chewy and tasty--after all, it's just white bread--but Vasos bread is superb. The entrees were delicious, and the Greek coffee was so good, I ate... More

We had the Greek Sampler which is very plentiful for 4 people. It has an excellent variety of stuffed grape leaves, anchovies, olives, fresh tomatoes and cukes, cheese. Pita and two spreads. It's good and filling. I had the lamb chops med rare. It was seasoned perfectly and the chops were tender. Great meal and accompanied with a side salad... More
