Went with a group of friends to this out of the way restaurant near the Old Town Alexandria. Nice cozy spot decent food and great service. Had the Vaso's Greek Style Shrimp, excellent dish prepared perfectly. Good selection of wines, (Retsina) was exceedingly tasty. This is my third visit and I look forward to a return visit soon.

I decided tonight to go solo to this restaurant. Ordered the lamb chops which were overdone but surprisingly tender. I suggest ordering them medium rare if you like medium as they continue to cook. The meat pasta sauce has flavor. The salad is fresh and crisp. I would definitely go again as this restaurant with a Greek and Italian menu... More

My friends who used to live in the Powhatan area of Old Town Alexandria invited me to dine with them in this old-fashion Greek restaurant that has been establishment for many years. Although I prefer Vaso's King Street location, the food in this cosier place is as good and I can understand the appeal to the locals who live in... More

Great food! Dined outside with two toddlers. Salads were fresh and the little ones loved the humus, vegetables and pita. Service was slow but everyone was very nice.

Ingredients are not fresh, they are from the can. Ordered the chicken special but the mushrooms were from a grocery store can and totally lacked flavor. The chicken plate lacked consistency. My friend ordered the Greek sampler plate and that was excellent! The Greek appetizers were excellent. The salad was disappointing. Hidden location will require a GPS unless you know... More

This is in Alexandria at the north end, away from the main Old Town commercial and restaurant district, and on the edge of a residential area. Find it, and you will be rewarded. We went there for a late lunch around 2:00 pm. There were several patrons still there, but there was plenty of seating available. White table cloths. I... More

My wife and I went here for our Thursday date night. We were a little confused at first by the location -- it is not really in Old Town, sort of being on the edge of a residential area. Also, the building is modest. We got there early (5:45-ish) and there was only one couple in there. By the time... More

This is just an all-around great restaurant. I've eaten here a few times and everything is always delicious. The place is small, but really nice and intimate, and the staff are super friendly and knowledgeable about food and wine. I concur with another reviewer that this might be the best Mediterranean food in the DC area.

Extensive menu that the staff was happy to tailor a few dishes for us. Food was good, but prices higher than I expected. We ait outside and got eaten alive by biting flies and more than expected traffic and noise. Suggest you eat inside or find another place.
