Disappointed, coming from out of town to celebrate our daughter' s birthday and there move to Alexandria, the phone staff and greeters were amazing. Bottle of champagne was waiting table side as ordered. We wanted a few bar apps like warm olives, cheese board and hush puppies. Our waiter,Andrew, acted inconvenient and wasn't sure he could serve us these requested... More

I was lucky to find a parking space directly in front on a Friday afternoon. A party of four on our first visit, we elected to share many dishes from the special "Winter Restaurant Week" offerings. The meal was full of pleasant surprises. Our accomplished waiter Dan was informed about ingredients. Starters included a salad of endive and spinach with... More

We had the tasting menu with the wine pairings. The food was excellent. The service was smooth and well paced - neither rushed nor slow. Our sever provided background for each of the wines. I was impressed that a first question asked was whether we had any food allergies or dislikes. I returned with a friend for lunch a few... More

Such a great restaurant - the food is delicious, the atmosphere is industrial chic, the wait staff is always knowledgeable and friendly. Close to King St. Metro and on street parking us easy to find. Try it - you'll love it!

Met a friend in the bar and ended up sharing space in the lounge with another group. The place was cozy, good sized and maybe had some space upstairs? (saw the stairs but never went up). Had some drinks and appetizers. The herb fries were really good as was the hushpuppies (3 dipping sauces). Will definitely come back for a... More

Went here for dinner based on foursquare reviews. Turned out the menu was slightly different which wasn't a huge deal. If you want to start with a cheese board, better ask for it - it's on the dessert menu. Cheeses were DELICIOUS! We tried 3 out of 5 and the servings are very generous for two people that can eat....

Very nice restaurant located in the quant streets in Alexandria. Food was excellent, service excellent and the staff was very well vested on wines. A little pricy but overall a great place to eat.

returned to Vermillion after a couple of bad experiences over the past 18 months - it went downhill after previous chef left - to find it's on the road to recovery - tasty dishes, relatively simply prepared with local products - still a little over-prices, with mid-size portions charged full price; but worth a visit. The deserts are new and... More

Appetizers quite good got garlic soup and salmon tartare. Dinner potatoe wrapped cod cooked perfectly but a bit under seasoned. Duck had no seasoning in duck or its accompinents. Plus the duck tasted old as if it were in freezer too long. Waiter hardly paid attention to you. Never once came to ask us how the entree was. Would not... More

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.
