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.

I have been to Vaso's on about a dozen occasions. Sometimes my wife and I want a spontaneous dinner, sometimes I have guests visiting from out of town, and other times, I just have a hankering for a gyro platter (one of many good options, though). The staff is extremely attentive and friendly, the vegetables and tomatoes are the freshest... More

This place is the best. Small and quaint, it's like eating at a friend's house. The staff is outstanding and very attentive. I've never had a bad meal there. I've brought at least 20 different friends there over the years and they all want to go back when they come to town. Probably the freshest food you'll ever eat, which... More

On a visit to Alexandria to see our son, my wife and I wanted to take himout for an especially nice dinner when he finished work last Friday evening. We researched the restaurants in Alexandria on Trip Adviser and selected Vaso's Kitchen on the basis of the excellent reviews it had received. What a disappointment. The restaurant is not inexpensive... More

My wife and I took my daughter to Vaso's for her birthday dinner. After the mixed appetizer, my daughter had this lamb chops, I had this braised lamb shank and my wife had a steak salad. It was all sublime. This was the second time we've eaten there and it was great both times.

We went on a Saturday night without reservations and were lucky to get a table. The restaurant is small but has outside seating. The menu is Greek and Italian. I had chicken piccata which was light and lemony. The house salad was a better quality than you normally get. My husband had flounder and couldn't stop eating even when full.... More

What a little hidden gem off the beaten path. Service and food were both excellent. Tables are close together but it didn't cause a problem for us. Large portions of food and the waiter was always quick to refill our glasses. Everyone sitting near us was also commenting on how good the food was. I highly recommend it. Don't be... More

Interesting people watching, food is fine but not particularly remarkable, good service. I would recommend this because of the neighborhood ambiance.

Excellent service. Fantastic food. You can't go wrong. The Greek style shrimp dish was great. My husband had the veal special and loved it. The waiter was charming and gave great recommendations. The outside says Dixie Pig, and as a non meat ester, I had never been. Thanks to TA reviews we gave it a try. Loved it.
