“Best Meal in 12 Months!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

There were four in our party. Not one of us had eaten here before. Honestly, each of us were blown away. The food was fresh, flavorful in an entirely conversational environment. We arrived with reservations at 8:00 PM and stayed until 11:00. We loved a bottle of house red wine from Greece. Shared two starters plus olives. The four meals spanned: beef, lamb, pasta and fish. All were absolutely spectacular. We topped off the meal with tiramisu and coffee. If Ever I make it back to Alexandria, this place will be my dinner spot with friends.

“Little Hole in the Wall Greek place tucked away on Powhaton Drive north of Old Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

A little hole in the wall restaurant with good Italian and Greek specialties. Try the Bronzini (white mediterranean fish) in olive oil, garlic and lemon sauce, or the steamed artichoke in garlic and olive oil. Good shrimp dishes, chicken, shish kabob and other favorites.

“The most overrated restaurant I've ever eaten in.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

I have had better food on an airplane, in coach. The chicken was dry and overcooked. The tzatsiki was very average. Even the pita was old and dry. The Vasos "special" dressing was very ordinary. Have they sent the "good chef" to the new place on King Street?

“Neighborhood Gem.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Vaso's is located just a few blocks from my home, located in the "historic" Dixie Pig. We don't frequent it as mch as we should, but Vaso's is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. The food is great. And, the staff, very attentive. Limited beer and wine list but you'll be fine. The only problem relates to Vaso's success: the restaurant is small, so during peak periods, it can be difficult to walk in a get a table.

And for fun ... If you were/are a fan of the TV show "West Wing," before transforming into Vaso's Kitchen, the vacant Dixie Pig restaurant was used as the location where the suspect in the Roslyn shootingbwas apprehended.

Also, they are not oen on Sundays.

“Excellent Greek food, service in Old Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

We dined at Vaso's Kitchen after reading numerous reviews. It was very close to our hotel and we walked in at 7:30pm without reservations and were lucky to be shown a fine table. Within a few minutes every table was full.
The service was helpful and descriptive of the food and wines. We ordered the fish special and a Greek sampler entree and were very happy with the choices. The food was fresh and attractively plated. The sampler was rich in taste with plenty to choose from. We enjoyed our leisurely dinner and never felt the need to leave. A great place at a good price. Can be a bit noisy as it is longer than wide and loud guests can be heard clearly. We will come back again.
