My group of 6 had a wonderful time at Vermilion celebrating a birthday. The atmosphere there is lovely and warm, and you can actually hear your tablemates. The service was spot on and the food was delicious. A few little extras made the evening even...More

We dined here our last night in town after a recommendation from Hank's Oyster Bar. The menu is eclectic and innovative. The chef most likely enjoys the challenges of using local products to make original combinations of food. For example, on the bar menu, steak...More

Had a lovely bottle of yeasty, dry champagne in the fun "red" lounge area. It was a little loud in the bar area, but felt like we were in a happening location. We were moved upstairs for dinner -- much quieter, though it was still...More

If you're looking for that special night out, this is not the place to go. But if you want an average meal, I guess this is as good as any. There were not many other diners, so at least there was not a noise issue...More

We were out shopping and running errands and stopped for a bite to eat. It was a Saturday late morning early afternoon so the brunch menu was still available. They have different fruit juice mimosas and a killer SPICY Bloody Mary. It was good but...More

It's the usual --omelettes, grits. There is cheese in every brunch dish. The locale is charming and in-town, so it's fine to start an afternoon of walking around historic Alexandria. Probably a better dinner option. Almost empty on the Sunday I was there,

Headed here with a large group of people and was rather disappointed. While I enjoyed my meal several of the others in my party did not. The server we had was very unfriendly and at times rude. For the amount this meal cost I expected...More

Sorry for the late reply. I just parked right on the street quite close to the restaurant. I never found out if they have valet parking or not, you may have to google that. Plenty of parking spaces on the street, but then... 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.
