“Yummy Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

For lunch I had the lamb souvlaki platter. It came with a salad that was very fresh and not overly dressed. The lamb was nicely grilled and so was the pita bread. The tzatziki was very good. The service was quite good and the place was well decorated. On a very cold day they also had a extra heater by the door which was nice. I think the prices for the platters was a bit high for lunch. I will be back!

“Tops for Greek Specialties and Tops for Maryland Crab Cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Vasilis continues to astound with its superlative lamb dishes like the lamb chops and kabobs that are so fresh, meaty, and cooked to a perfect doneness. The side dishes of Greek style green beans are always sauced just right with tomato and herbs. Oven roasted potatoes are prepared "just right!!!!!" and never under or overcooked. Pastichio, layered pasta and ground beef sauced "to die for" is an inexpensive, but tasty entree. Every night there are seafood specials, and they are excellent. Service is fast for both lunch and dinner. For a quick lunch fix try the gyro platter with hot crisp French fries. Deserts (great tasting cookies) are made in-house and the bread is also home baked. Wine selections are excellent, and we go for the "house-by-the-glass" Greek red. The price per glass is right, and the amount of pour is reasonable. I have only positive things to say about the wine list. In the Greater Washington Metro Area, very few Greek restaurants offer true Greek coffee, because it is difficult to make and serve. Vasilis offers top quality Greek coffee served with a smile. Family owned and operated, the serving smiles are abundant. Nicely decorated, the atmosphere is charming, and seasonal decorations (like Christmas) are sparkling and bright. The kitchen is open to view, and it too is most sparkling and bright. Outdoor seating during the season is quite a pleasure; and the servers never forget that you deserve quick and responsive service while dining outside. On street parking is adequate and never a problem. All the nearby streets are brightly lighted, clean, and quiet with parking spaces available.

“Great Local Restaurant in the Kentlands”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I have been frequenting Vasilis for about 5 years. The food is consistently good. I recommend the Saganaki (cheese w/ orzo that is light on fire at tableside), gyro, or any of the kabobs. My one suggestion for the restaurant is they need to be a little more heavy handed when they poor the wine by the glass. I don't think the wine by the glass is a good deal. You should go to the restaurant if you live in the Kentlands area.
