Always Special!

We had another outstanding dinner experience at Vasilis, definitely our favorite local restaurant. The branzino was perfect, the Mythos beer was cold, and the service was attentive ... what more could you want?

We started with an appetizer of saganaki. This is greek cheese (kasseri) fried! It comes flaming hot, literally, it is set on fire for a final crisp and put out with the juice of a lemon. It was amazing. The outside was a thin layer of crisp to protect the oozing cheese inside. The cheese itself was very creamy, but... More

I love Greek food so I like Vasilis. Everything is pretty good. I like it rather than love it though, because the food is a little bland and the béchamel sauce on the moussaka has potatoes in it! Or at least the texture seems potato'y. So it seems sort of like a beef-based shepherd's pie rather than moussaka. And the... More

The operators know how to make guests feel welcome. They came around offering samples of the night's special to those of us waiting for a table. The menu is standard Greek fare and very good quality, but not exceptional. The lamb kabob was smaller than one would expect for the price and I would not order it again. But the... More

We have visited often and have enjoyed the seafood - Branzino and Rockfish, as well as the porkchops, and kabobs. Reasonably priced, the food is fresh, the specials are enticing, and the Vasili family seems to genuinely enjoy having you stop by for dinner.
