“Don't let the outside deceive you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

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.

“Little gem near Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Quite a Locals Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

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 was great) and the others enjoyed there offers as well. Yes, we will return. Service was so-so!

“Great location for Greek food in Alexandria neighborhood”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

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 glasses and the bottle. To be fair, our waitress had our one shared dessert made complimentary. Sometimes, both cooks and waitstaff have an off night. I think that was the problem. They were also at the end of their evening. We plan to give them another try. The Greek appetizers, by the way, were excellent.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

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.
