Everything was ok, that is my overall impression. Food, service and ambiance is just ok.
It is a good spot for a get together with some friends or a casual snack/drink after spending a day in Old Town but not the place that I am eager to go back to. Casual style dining experience.

The ambience of outdoor dining in the midst of the Alexandria waterfront is wonderful. We went on a gorgeous Sunday night, dinner for four, able to sit outdoors without a big wait (outdoor seating is not possible to secure via reservation, which is a bummer). The service was great, the food was lackluster. It was an OK burger, tacos made with flour tortillas (who does that!), a disappointing salad; dishes were gussied up with things like “chipotle ranch” dressing, but the quality of the food prevented these touches from coming through.

My wife and I had the crabcake/poached eggs for brunch without the Hollandaise sauce-
we did not find it very flavorful.
Service was good, as well as the home fries

Nice day to eat outside

Went to Virtue with a friend and sat in the patio area. It was a lovely experience after months of not going to restaurant due to the pandemic - we felt very safe and they supplied hand sanitizer on each table. The servers and staff were pleasant and very attentive. The food was cooked perfectly and the chocolate peanut pie was very delicious. I think I need to return soon to have the pie again.

Virtue Feed & Grain is within walking distance of my Alexandria home, and is often a stopping off point for a snack, meal or cocktail when I'm strolling around the waterfront. The food is well prepared and hearty, and the outdoor dining within sight of the river and parkland is just about perfect! BTW: great bloody mary's!

Lunch meeting on the patio with two other at noon on a weekday. the server was attentive and helpful, the food was fantastic with a calamari appetizer and seared salmon as an entrée. All cooked to perfection!

the patio has plenty of room to distance between tables and the alley location keeps you away from the street traffic.

We had made reservations a week in advance for a party of 4 and we were there 5 minutes early. In fairness, they would seat us in doors immediately but we had to wait 30 minutes for an outdoor table. The waitress was slow to come to our table and another staff person took orders for drinks. The food was pedestrian--no one finished their meal. We had to signal for the check and the wrong one was brought to our table (we were undercharged by $100.00 and shared this with the server.) We will not return.

Personnel, specially over the phone weren’t clear and didn’t communicate the outdoor patio process correctly. The host was not profesional and very arrogant when I arrived to check in, reservation or not even after adding notes one still has to wait for outdoor sitting. After calling the restaurant they still re-direct you go online platform

The restaurant was delicious. The duck poutine is fantastic; you should get it if you go. Overall, the food was terrific, and the brunch menu had some tasty options. If you have the option, sit upstairs by the windows overlooking the Potomac, excellent for the cool fall days coming up!
