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.

Had one of the best spaghetti carbonara dishes ever in this tiny little gem in the former (local landmark) Dixie Pig building. A really chic little spot with exceptional food, well known to locals. Recommend.

A friend suggested this location for lunch a short 5 minutes drive from our meeting. We are glad she did as we had never heard of this interesting Greek restaurant. A very small place - with seating outside, but with the humidity (not unusual this time of year) we opted for inside. We had salads (mine the Greek - which... More

Based on other reviews in TripAdvisor, I had high expections for Vaso's kitchen. Unfortunately, the night we were there, the food was so-so. Fish was over cooked and the service was inattentive. We ordered a bottle of wine, but were brought two glasses instead. We pointed this out and were then brought a bottle. We were charged for both the... More

Food is excellent and the service has been great every time I have eaten here. I am partial to the gyro platter or moussaka. Once or twice I've had to wait to be seated but only because there are people waiting in line.

We showed up on satarday night with no reservation and wanted to sit outside, the place was packed outside and inside. The young gentleman told us to sit at the bar and give him 15min. In about 8min he pulled a table from inside and took it outside so we can be seated. We ordered the Spanakopita which was to... More

This restaurant is great. It's nicely decorated and cosy, the service is great, and most of all the food was delicious and well priced. It deserves its number one spot on trip advisor!

The meals were wonderful and ample portions. The lamb shank was lean and tender and actually worked well with pasta. The gyro sampler was huge. The service was wonderful. The only cons were the gyro meat was very salty and the BBQ sign on the building does not make you think Greek food.
