“Great little Mediterranean Restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We can walk to this place; but would gladly drive if it was further. I would not say It is a traditional Greek menu; it is much more than that. Just a great meal with a Greek flair. There is not a lot of seating, so expect to wait during busy periods (worth the wait). There is some outdoor seating weather permitting.

I have heard they sometimes have a Weekend or Sunday brunch, but have not experienced it yet.

“Love that Greek!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We have been to Vaso's several times over the past couple of years and are always very pleased. Wonderful homey atmosphere, delicious food and great service. Excellent selection of Greek inspired dishes. The food is always fresh and the servers are young, friendly, enthusiastic and just plain good. A local hang out that is always crowded on weekends and even during the week. Full bar. Outdoor seating available in front. Small parking lot but parking available on the street nearby. Reasonable prices. Look for it under the historic sign of the Dixie Pig BBQ! Highly recommended!

“Mediterranean Joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Had a night out with our Mothers at Vaso's Kitchen. Everything was great. The flavors lingered on the palette long after the meal ended. The Greek soup was awesome, fish prepared and flavored perfectly and the veal chop excellent. We will be returning soon to sample more of their extensive selections.

“Great food in cool neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Loved the setting for Vasos. Cool little neighborhood not far from Old Town. Sat outside and enjoyed the great weather and vibe. Food really good - saganaki, moussaka, gyro platter, greek salad all well done. Dessert to die for - greek pastry filled with custard and baked - a must have!!
