Once again, wonderful food
Once again, wonderful food and friendly service. A definite must go to place in Capitol Hill. Great for families and small groups. Affordable as well. Try the roast chicken or the brisket. Nice ambiance too.

We have always loved VIOS
We have always loved VIOS and had a great experience during our last visit. Great menu and excellent customer service! Hard to find local neighborhood restos like this. If you haven't tried VIOS yet, it is a must.

Fantastic family spot, awesome food
Fantastic food, friendly service, and perfect for kids. They have a great playroom set up surrounded by booths so we actually managed to enjoy a leisurely brunch while our toddler stayed occupied! Great kids menu choices, interesting and tasty brunch options. We just love this place.

Discovered Vios via OpenTable when looking for a Greek restaurant. I was initially disappointed when I noticed there wasn't any calamari, which I was craving, but the lamb souvlaki that I ended up ordering was excellent! Tender, juicy, delicious! We also ordered the 3-dip pita platter with tzatziki, babaganoush and kopanisti, and all were excellent. A surprisingly great dinner overall!

Tucked in the 19th Avenue
Tucked in the 19th Avenue corridor on Capital Hill, this is one of my favorites. Healthy and Mediterranean food-my idea combination. The food is excellent, service as well. Locally owned. Responsive to customer needs--special requests. Loved it.

My boyfriend had never had Greek food and was eager to try it. While we were in the neighborhood for a SIFF film, I thought we'd check out this neighborhood gem. I'm so glad that we did! We were both satisfied with our meal and tried some new things. I'd recommend the 3-dip special to all.

Very good food on Capitol Hill
Enjoyed the pork chop very much. The lamb and chicken souvlaki was abit dry this time around, but stll tasty. I commented this to the cook and he took what I said on a positive note; good to know they care about their patron's comments.
Affordable, good for small groups and families.

This is one of our favorite restaurants-consistently delicious food, good service in a relaxed atmosphere. Be sure to make a reservation for the weekends!

Try the family dinner!
Had a big group family-style dinner--i ordered ahead, the food just appeared, conversation flowed, greek dips and salads, then beautiful seared tuna on blackeyed peas, and green beans in tomato sauce sprinkled with feta on big platters. A great way to go for a big group!

Second time's a charm!
This was my second time dining at Vios. Our first experience was positive but not nearly as memorable. This time I ordered the lamb kebabs. They were simply delicious, perfectly seasoned and tender. The dish's accompaniments were equally well prepared. I've never tasted such sweet roasted tomatoes. My partner ordered the evening's special, a seafood stew, which was also superb. Thank you Vios for a lovely and food-memorable experience!

The Best Greek Food in Seattle
The small plates and entrees here are expertly prepared and garnished. Every dish you order is full of clean Mediterranean flavors
of lemon and good olive oil. The special of the evening which was a fish stew made up of salmon, halibut, mussels, and clams was outstanding. The hanger steak with Isreali couscous was delicious as well. The chef takes their time plating each entree with care and attention. I highly recommend ordering the Assyrtiko wine to pair with many of the plates. It has a nice astringency which
goes well with olive oil garnished dishes like the Dolmas and Greek Salad as well as the Hummus, Tapenade, and other dips.
This is one of those places you could dine at several times a month !!!

Excellent food again!
This place has amazing food -- great flavor profiles and quality ingredients. My daughter ordered something that had Israeli couscous in it, which she cannot eat (gluten intolerant), and she just failed to note it on the menu. Her fault entirely. We asked the waiter if we could sub something else. Bam! Done! He was awesome and we truly appreciated him taking extra care to make sure she was happy and her tummy would be well. Bravo!

Neighborhood dining on Capitol Hill
We had excellent Greek gyros, lamb and falafel. Very fast, efficient service.

Truly a neighborhood gem!
Vios is always a guaranteed fun time––great atmosphere, vibrant with locals, delicious Greek food with gourmet foodie twists from chef/ower Thomas, fast/friendly service, and a welcoming neighborhood feel! Even though it is great for families (with the dedicated kid play area), it never feels like one of those "kid places" where you can't relax and enjoy a nice "adult" dinner. Thomas' radiant personality, warm & welcoming European style, and great menu never disappoints!

Seattle has many restaurants with kid play areas, but this is the only one we've been to that has excellent food. The service staff are always pleasant and helpful. A real gem!

Great for dinner with Kids
I've never been to a place that has a play area for the kiddos, this makes for a very loud and exciting dining experience - which was perfect. The service was great, the wait staff showed interest in making sure everyone was happy (you could tell they actually like having all the kids around) they all said hello to the children. Overall the place is very accommodating for families. Great food options for the little ones and the rest of us. The Trio Sampler plate was delicious as great size to share and the chicken souvlaki had the most amazing slow roasted tomatoes. The chocolate salted caramel custard was very satisfying for dessert. You can't beat $20 bottles of wine either!

I am so lucky to have this restaurant in my neighborhood. We have eaten there 2x this week when it was too hot to cook in our kitchen. The other night the windows were open and people were walking in and taking tables inside and outside, I was reminded of one of my fondest memories of Rome. Our hotel was was in a neighborhood and we walked and stumbled across a restaurant with tables and lights and families gathered. We took a table and were surrounded by local people in the middle of a residential neighborhood. It was the most charming evening of my trip. This is what Vios brings to me.

Dinner at Vios...
...was fabulous! Friendly, attentive staff and delicious, authentic Greek food made for a lovely night for me and my 3 girlfriends! Make sure to make a reservation as the fill up fast!

Great family dining experience
We had a very enjoyable evening at Vios Cafe. The food was enjoyed by both adults and children ages 13 and 10. The service was first-rate and we felt that we got great value for the money. The whole family agreed that this was a "come again" restaurant!

Great for groups/kids
We had a wonderful dinner on a Wednesday night with seven adults and 4 kids (5yr,3yr,14mos,9mos). They have great long tables for large groups and plenty of highchairs. The waitstaff was excellent with the group and kids. HUGE bonus that they have a kid area - toys, books, little chairs, this place is stocked! Also great facilities for baby changing. The food was delicious and they had many options to please a variety of eaters (kid, veg, meat, etc.) Service wasn't super speedy but worth the wait for their food. Already planning on coming back with our PEEPS group next time.

We had such a great time - there were 10 moms and 10 babies. We had incredible food and outstanding service. It is such a wonderful piece of the neighborhood and is welcoming to moms and babies (not always easy to find!).

Embarrassingly, I live on North Capital Hill and many times has passed VIOS on the way home. It's always busy and looks inviting. This past weekend with friends in town, we stopped in for dinner and where rewarded with a wonderful experience. The food was very good as well as the service.
OK, I admit have previously enjoyed lunch and several quiet afternoon coffee's, which are equally nice.

Excellent food, reasonable price!
Three of us had dinner on Saturday prior to a concert in the neighborhood. This was the first time there for all of us, but definitely not the last! Greek salad, lamb and chicken souvlaki, a bottle of wine, and two desserts -- all superb. Fast, friendly service too. I'm glad we made reservations because the place was packed.

Warm, friendly atmosphere
Third time here and never anything but excellent food....Staff and owner make sure that you are happy...We are looking forward to our next visit...

Always great at Vios!
We come back again and again to the friendly, welcoming team at Vios. There is hands down no better place in Seattle where the adults can eat a delicious meal and the kids are happy, full-bellied, and entertained. And the team at Vios does a good job of seating the families near the play area so people without kids can eat in the quieter front area.

As a parent with 2 small kids, Vios is a rare find - a restaurant with truly delectable food, warm and consistant service, and kid-friendly atmosphere. It's hard to find a place that serves healthy, delicious food for both kids and adults. But you don't have to bring kids to enjoy Vios. I would recommend it for groups, dates, business lunches, family gatherings...you can't go wrong. Bottom line - food is fantastic and the place is full of heart and soul. Go now!
