Simply Delicious!

Vaso's will go unnoticed by many in the Alexandria area as it is tucked away between Old Town and Del Ray. But for those in the neighborhood, you can bet it is a "Go To" kind of place.

The food here was simply exceptional, and I mean everything for all members of our dinner party exceeded expectations. Pasta was served with just the right amount of " chew"; seafood was fresh and tasty. If you have the opportunity and the appetite, try the huge pasta/seafood dish featuring, shrimp, mussels, scallops, etc, etc - it is really excellent. The... More

I was on a business trip, staying at the Sheraton Suites in Old Town Alexandria. I checked TripAdvisor and Vaso's came up in the Top 10. It was only 0.4 miles away, so I walked there. When I arrived I found a homey stand alone restaurant with plenty of outdoor seating and a family with children enjoying the weather. But... More

Great food at a great price. They have two locations in Alexandria. This review is for the one on Powhatan Street. They have a parking lot but it only holds 6 to 8 cars. Street parking is in the surrounding neighborhoods. I was able to park next to the restaurant. They have outdoor seating but there is no views so... More

First visit on a friend's recommendation. Small, cozy place with great service and delicious food. Greek appetizers were excellent and the fresh seafood special was amazing. All fresh selections with marinara that had a nice touch of spice and good flavor. Ended with the tiramisu. Yum! The only "negative" was the overdressed house salad. Super service from friendly and knowledgeable... More

This small family restaurant serves wonderful food in a cozy, pleasant atmosphere. The house specials were really good on a recent visit. We had the fish and the veal chop and enjoyed both. Our appetizers of crab stuffed mushrooms and oysters Rockefeller were delicious. Our server was so nice and helpful, and made our experience even better. There were small... More

Four of us went to Vasos for an evening out, after being informed of it by another friend. While we found the food to be well-presented and tasty, the presence of a child who was yelling at full volume and running around the dining room was more than enough to diminish the evening. While the parents did nothing to rein... More

Vaso's Kitchen is a great north-end neighborhood restaurant! Food is consistently good, reasonably priced and sitting outside in the right weather is a great bonus! As I recall, they could use some wine list help and they really need a bigger space but then it won't be like visiting momma's kitchen!
