Description: Vermilion features Chef William Morris' menu of Contemporary American cuisine. Complimenting Chef Morris' menu is Vermilion's wine list, named one of the top wine lists in the country by Restaurant Hospitality Magazine. Combining a charming location in Old town Alexandria with stylized design and atmosphere, Vermilion represents a bit of downtown sophistication: from the exposed brick in the upstairs dining room to the overstuffed pillows in the lounge downstairs, Vermilion holds something for all tastes.

The food is great and I love the atmosphere! Been here many times for lunch, happy hour, and dinner. The lunch menu is very reasonably priced. Dinner is expensive.

Vermillion is one of my favorite places to go to for Happy Hours and dinners in Old Town. The decor is sultry and posh and the food is delicious. I highly recommend the parmesan fries if you're in the bar area. All the cocktails are wonderful too. It's a very cool place with some great food and drinks. You won't regret it.

Not a ton of menu choices but what they do is done well. Worth it. Great old space which was renovated and had a lot of character. Good service

We sat at the bar, the place was busy for a Thursday night. The Catfish Fingers with the old bay seasonings chips was amazing. I ordered the Atlantic fish- which was Grouper, - was really delicious. My friend ordered the chicken wtih Soucatash - he almost licked the plate! Great Chocolate Cheesecake dessert. Cocktails - I tried the Moscow Mule - I had to have a second.
Will go back and recommend.

We enjoyed a nice dinner - a little noisy at 7:00 Pm but it quieted down to comfortable levels by 7:45. The meals were well prepared and wonderfully presented. One member had a food allergy and they took care of that with no problem, except that the server served the wrong plates and the salmon with garlin was served to the person with the allergy. But the management was very concerned, brought new plates with the right preparation to the right people. A great time was had despite the little mixup.
