Our server was rude. Nothing more to it, just rude. Only half the tables outside are actually in shade. Maybe inside would have been a better experience, but as most are still wanting to sit outside with the pandemic still going on, I would have preferred to not sweat away the afternoon.
The food was outstanding! However the service was horrible. We had a reservation for 8pm but we were told to wait at the bar until the table became available. Well that was at 8:24pm. Then we ordered out appetizers which came out quickly and were delicious. Now when it came time for the main course we waited 45 minutes. We asked the server if she could check on our meal but she didnt come back until she brought the food. We paid for the meal but had to wait another 25 minutes for her to return with the receipt so that we could sign.
I gave the server 10% based on the service. I would have given 20% but the wait was ridiculous!
I would go back but I would ask to have another server if I was given the same person.
Wasn’t the best tasting food but it was ok. Service was very attentive and friendly. Nice ambiance.
AMAZING. Our waitress, Penny, set us up. Best food I've had in Old Town and in my top worldwide. Get seafood and the flaming cheese.
Food quality was very good, and service was timely and friendly. The Scotch on the rocks I ordered was weak and inadequate.
The service was good until it got busy. Calamari was excellent, sea bass special was good, chicken Marsala was just okay.
The food and service was phenomenal. I can't believe I had never been here before. Please try the Halloumi Cheese and the Lamb Kapama.
Second time here and like our first experience it was outstanding. Wonderful food and service and you can tell the wait staff, cooking team and hosts really work as a team and it shows. Can't wait to go back!
Great food and great people. Table next to us was really loud and staff didn’t seem to do anything. Minor inconvenience.
When we asked our waiter a question he responded by telling us he was busy. Did not receive good service.
Excellent meal and service
Enjoyed a nice lunch with a good friend! The service was friendly and the food was good. We each had a different salad - they were fresh and delightful!
Outdoor sidewalk dining was perfect!
The special Sea Bass was cooked to perfection! The Greek salad was exceptional with an outstanding herb dressing.
Yanni and the team at Vasos were absolutely great. Growing up in a Greek family, I am very critical of Greek testy. This was just like Yaya used to make, delicious and authentic!
Meet the mother and daughter of the family who owns VASO...good people. I will be back soon!!!
Vaso's has a delicious lamb shank braised in an incredible tomato-based sauce. Seating was inside or at tables outside. Since it was chilly and windy, we dined inside at a quiet table. The door was open, though, causing it to be very cool.
The food and service was took too long.
The food was good but came out warm, it was very noisy
The food is outstanding.
Great food and service.
Manage/owner Johnny is a wonderful host who makes you feel like home,
We really enjoyed our evening here. Food was amazing. Loved the ambiance. Definitely a family place. Highly recommend.
Nothing beats a weekend lunch there complete with a glass of retsina before walking through Old Town, Alexandria
Great experience. Service a bit slow for our large group. Amazing food!
Ambiance was great, food was good. Service was a bit slow. Overall great spot for a group or hangout.
Kinda small. Ordered the shrimp stuffed with crabmeat and you had the option of vegetables or pasta as your side. The side of pasta came in a small bowl and covered in sauce. One has meat sauce and the other for my friend had sauce with no meat. Neither of us were asked about sauce and it was kinda weird to just have a bowl of pasta covered with sauce to go with my crab stuff shrimp that was on the plate.
The distance inside wasn’t super far, and there were a lot of customers not wearing masks. The service was fair, but took over an hour for us to get our food.
This was our first time at Vaso's. It is a beautiful restaurant. Everyone was social distanced and staff were very nice. Our first issue was with the appetizers. My husband and I each ordered one and they brought them out at completely different times. I had soup and received it first. I was long done with my soup before they brought out my husband's appetizer. Still don't know why they didn't bring them out together. Second issue was my Veal Saltimbacca. The Prosciutto was over-cooked. The veal itself was tender and very good. Overall, the food was good and we will probably return.
Everything was wonderful except for the people waiting to eat kept propping open the doors letting cold air in. Next time I will ask for a table in the back of the restaurant.
On of the best restaurants in Old Town Alexandria, Va. and my wife and I have been to many of them. This was our first time venturing away from the waterfront and Vaso's Mediterranean restaurant was very much worth the entertaining and historical walk./
Good food, great atmosphere (UPSTAIRS!!) and good service
It's okay but nothing special. We chose it because of proximity to our hotel and the menu, but arrived to see an abbreviated menu, limited seating and a noisy narrow eatery. Food portions were okay but you can get more food for the same price elsewhere on King St. Service was fine but we'll try somewhere else next time.
Loved the chicken piccata. Nice wine options. Very good service.
Sort of underwhelmed for what we paid. Nothing was objectively bad per se, but the pasta we received we thought would be part of the dish, not a premade side in a side bowl with questionable meat sauce. And it definitely wasn't handmade pasta.
A return visit-- the Vaso's Shrimp was excellent! A nice dinner on a cold winter evening. Thank you!
Great food, service, and ambiance. Couldn't have picked a better restaurant for a nice romantic meal.
A return visit, to a favorite Old Town Alexandria restaurant. We've been going for a time now, but this visit we tried some new things instead of old favorites and may have found some new favorites-- the Chicken Sorrentino was very nicely prepared, and Vaso's Shrimp, delicious! A nice evening!
First time at Vaso’s and will be be back. Highly recommend.
The atmosphere was very nice, food was delicious, the waiters were friendly and respectful, great service, I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to take person on a cozy date or anniversary dinner
