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

We were looking someplace close to our Hotel in Alexandria Virginia. We saw this place online and decided to try the three course menu. The restaurant contacted us not soon after we made the reservation on open table. I thought that was good and they asked us about food allergies. I think many an eatery these days are attune to...

Had a excellent squash soup, hanger steak and grits followed by a pumpkin panna cota and it all was delicious. The service was cordial and the ambiance a combination of eclectic and elegant. The price was fair for the quality of food. I recommend this place if you are in Alexandria

I had been looking forward to going here for a while based on some reviews/blogs about their desserts. Had the opportunity to go recently, and enjoyed the dessert (Mint Oreo Mousse Pie), but it didn’t quite live up to the hype. After dessert, we asked for the bread that is served before dinner as we had seen it go to... More

Spent a lovely evening enjoying the vibe of the lounge at Vermilion. We caught the end of happy hour and enjoyed several lite bites off the happy hour menu. Nice selection of craft beers and wines. The lounge menu offered several interesting choices including a very spicy chicken sandwich worth trying. Relaxing atmosphere, great service.

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.
