On our visit to attend a convention in Washington D.C. our hotel was in Old Towne Alexandria. After coming back from a long day playing tourist we decided to head out to eat. We must have passed this little gem of a restaurant at least 3 times trying to decide what to eat. Finally we decided to try Vaso's. We... More

Vaso's is a hidden little gem that is one of my favorite restaurants in the D.C. area. It has a very unique balance of simplicity and sophistication that makes it much more than just a lunch spot for me. I typically get one of the fish dishes with capers which are all amazing (just be warned if you're on a... More

Everything that we ordered was delicious. The table bread was piping hot and served with a quality olive oil for dipping, the salad was fresh and the dressing was outstanding. Gyro and chicken souvlaki were great. They are liberal with use of a moderate strength feta. They even sprinkle it on the fries. The setting is intimate with 2 top... More

My family and I eat here often enough to know the dishes and the expectation of a good meal. I've had really good meal here but that is usually with the pasta, pork, lamb or beef dishes. I had the seafood special which was shrimp, squid, mussels and clams with red sauce over pasta. This night the seafood was over... More

Ease of reservation, portion size, price, and most importantly taste were all spot-on. Delicious greek food. The large menu and additional Italian options were a great bonus. My only nit pick - the place was a bit musty inside like a damp basement. But nothing overly serious. Would easily recommend.

This was a great meal in a lovely restaurant. My friend and I stopped in here for lunch before I dropped her off at the airport, and we both left full and happy. Service was friendly and quick, the food was delicious, and I would happily recommend this restaurant to others!

I went here based on the high reviews from all sites and limited choices within walking distance of my hotel. I do not understand the rave reviews which seem to be primarily from locals who may not have much experience at Greek restaurants. Restaurant does not have a website and menu shown on Google search had prices 1/2 of what... More

I've never experienced such a wonderful little family restaurant before! I have my in laws in town and they just flew in from Chicago and they heard about the gyros here, so I brought them over to try them. Me and my husband have been here many of times but this was the first for my in laws. So me... More
