We were three tourists in town for a couple of days during the gov't shutdown. It was pretty chilly outside as we walked around looking for a place to have lunch. We smelled something really good and our noses led us to Vaso's. We were...More

Delicious seafood, great wines and desserts - tiramisu was fantastic. Wonderful wait staff (Stavia!) and a lovely interior. Able to have a quiet dinner and good conversation as well as terrific food. Definitely recommend!

My daughter & I shared an app, an entree and a dessert all of which were made fresh in house. All delicious. Our server was very gracious and helpful with daily specials and suggestions. I highly recommend this establishment.

the seating is really limited and small however the food is great. I had the Chicken Alfredo and the sauce was the best I've ever had. I would highly recommend this eatery. Great wine selection as well

My daughter and I went to Vasos Mediterranean on Friday for dinner. I had Oysters Rockefeller (w/ a splash of Ouzo). They were terrific. My entree was Saltimboca and was very possibly the best I’ve ever had. My daughter had Moussaka and it was excellent....More

Good but not remarkable Greek food. Lamb chops were tasty, but I had much better. They came with pasta or vegetables. Since I am gluten-free, I opted for the vegatables (boiled/stewed brussel sprouts), which were bland. Asked for a rice side dish to get some...More

I stopped here for lunch en route to the airport after a brief business trip. The avgolemono soup was among the best I’ve ever had! My chicken souvlaki pita “sandwich” was deliciously seasoned (and simply delicious!) but was really more a fork and knife plate...More

Found this restaurant through TripAdvisor. It lives up to its ratings, maybe better. We arrived with a reservation and were seated promptly. Our server greeted us and offered menus, and returned shortly to give us the nightly specials. Drink orders were taken and brought out....More

Our visit to Vaso's was a downer from which we have never quite recovered. Not only was it during Restaurant Week, which would lead anyone to expect a better-than-average dining experience. It was also to celebrate a milestone birthday (mine). As the restaurant had been...More

Street parking, pay until 9:00pm. Some lots nearby and if you are taking metro or staying in Old Town, you can take the free trolley that runs up and down King Street.
