We had a table for 4 in the upper room. The service is very professional. We took the 5-course tasting menu. This price (68$) appeared to be a very good value for money. Also the accompanying wine parings (27$ for a glass with each dish)...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.
