The AC was blasting and it made it extremely uncomfortable. The food was good
Great food again. Porterhouse should be a regular menu item as it was that exceptional! Crap cake Benedict was also delightful! Cullan did a spectacular job as our waiter. Recommend the patio seating as well
Really enjoyed having Easter brunch here! The service was excellent, food and drinks were delicious. I recommend the crab benedict and breakfast skillet.
Hostess seemed miserable despite us having a reservation for 3:15pm. Server was nice but we waited a while for them to come take our order. Food was okay but my meal was lukewarm and we waited a while for our mains. I’m thinking mine sat out for a while before it was brought to me. It was a nice day though and we sat on patio, so made up for it a bit. Probably wouldn’t return for the food.
Our table was ready at the appointed time and gave us a great view of the Potomac. The food was prepared well and the first time I was served swordfish in a fish taco. Amazing. Our server was knowledgeable and the food came quickly after being ordered. Love that you have a canine menu for our furry friends.
Food yummy and server was wonderful-came from out of town, this restaurant was recommended. We enjoyed our experience and would visit again.
Our server was amazing. Setting amazing. Would like larger portions but that’s only because I have a 15 year old boy to feed. 😊
Went for lunch and was seated at a 4-top even though I was a deuce. When my colleague called to cancel, I asked to be moved. It was a little chilly outside and I knew the dining room would be crowded. I took a high top at the bar. The service was terrific. My French Dip sandwich was great. My wine was comforting.
Who could ask for anything more?
Virtue Feed and Grain is working hard at being unique which they may be pulling off, put they are missing the fundamentals; check on food when its delivered, refill beverages without being asked, when asked don't forget to do it; on the food side, please taste what you are delivering - if entrees with wine based reductions still taste like alcohol.....the reduction isn't done. Very busy spot so others don't seem troubled but dropping $100 for a meal that's not excellent and service that is well off the mark....won't be doing that again.
Loved it, was my first time and I would go back
The upstairs dining area is the best section of the restaurant if dinner conversation is important to you. Good selection of vegetarian options as well as meat dishes. They were very accommodating for requests to omit onions etc. Great service & food.
Delish fish tacos.Service is always consistently great and spot on. My guest had never been to the restaurant and enjoyed himself immensely. He even ordered dessert first! Thanks, Scott!
Food usually is good but all three of our prime ribs were not good.
Great place to celebrate my birthday! I can’t wait to go back!!
Ambience great; food mediocre. Banana muffins amazing. I’d go there for a drink but not so much the food.
Patio service was slow and items were forgotten multiple times.
Hosted a client from Chicago. The server’s name (Jayln?) was utterly amazing. It was her first night and she did so well. She was friendly, warm, and prompt. Everything was brought out timely and she checked on us appropriately. Very impressed with her work ethic.
The food was a bit on the salty side for my taste. The jerk chicken was all salt and not enough sauce. My client enjoyed her steak and fries.
Overall good offerings and environment.
Ambiance and crowd were pleasant. The food was prepared well. A little loud but on a Friday night that is expected.
This is a hidden gem! For aviation fanatics this is the place to go, plus you get to enjoy a delicious 3 course meal! Service was top notch! Will definitely go back!
The wait staff were great. I was meeting some friends and I had never been there. The waiters gave great recommendations for drinks, appetizers and entree’s.
Scott our waiter was great.
Excellent food and beautiful presentation. Service was impeccable. The ambiance of the upstairs dining area was rustic and chic. Would recommend this venue highly.
I like the ambience of the restaurant. We had a party of 10 and was seated at a private area in the upstairs portion of the restaurant. This is a recommended restaurant for out of towners. I like both of the bar areas. Upstairs is an area where you can sit on a couch and drink and dine as well. Excellent place and very modern. Will visit here again
Food is consistently great as is the service.
When Virtue first opened years ago I was not impressed...Went back with a group and Have been back many more times!!! Beautiful place, great food and drinks, friendly knowledgeable staff!!
Excellent service, great food, yummy cocktails! Ambiance was just what we were looking for!
We just happened to be in Old Town Alexandria on the first day of spring breakout. As we had never been here before, we took a gamble on Virtue Feed and Grain for dinner and we were not disappointed. It was good we had a reservation because the wait time would have been an hour and a half. We requested seating in the outdoor sidewalk patio as the noise level was much less than inside. The food was superb and the service was exceptional.
We each enjoyed the Duck Meatloaf. The order came out very quickly and was hot! The brussel sprouts were a little too salty. The server was kind and attentive. The owner/manager worked as hard as anyone engaging with us twice. The place is loud and we had a little trouble carrying on conversation as a couple. Do try!
First, our server was fantastic. Friendly, pleasant, prompt, personable. A+ there. However.
1) coffee was lukewarm (wasn’t a one time fluke because refill was as well)
2) online there’s a brunch menu but nowhere does it say that there is no brunch on Saturday’s. Disappointing to say the least
3) boar burger- on the one hand, cooked correctly -medium rare On the the other hand, 1 side of the burger was absolutely charred and felt like every bite was full of burnt boar. I’ll give benefit of the doubt and assume normal chef was out today.
4) Tuna poke salad- dressing and nuts were good, not much flavor on the poke
The table next to us got the tacos- those (at least from our vantage point) did look delicious.
From the hostess, to the servers, to the food, everything was top notch! Would definitely go again. Ryan was my server and he was great and he was training another girl who was also wonderful.
I love this restaurant!! The food is delicious - and great menu choices for vegetarians and non vegetarians. It is in a beautiful old warehouse right on the water and across the alley from a new book store, so a great place to wander around. A good choice for locals or tourists.
We enjoyed lunch here during our sisters and mom reunion week. Our server was friendly, fun, and competent. The food was delicious. Two of us had fish tacos (so good!), another had the prime rib sandwich (and she loved it), and Mom had the duck meatloaf (unusual and very good). We’ll definitely be back.
Cocktails were too sweet but ribs were excellent and vibe is hip.
The restaurant was appealing as soon as we walked in. Heavy wood construction with high ceiling and comfortable seating. The food was amazing, interesting and delicious and our server Mark B was on point!
Our server was definitely above average. I wish I had her name, so I could offer a “shout out”. Everything else was good too. The brunch menu was rather limited, but what we had was well-prepared and the atmosphere was pleasant.
Always a favorite. You definitely need a reservation for dinner and brunch, especially on the weekends.
Very Disappointed! We made reservations at 5:45 pm on Saturday evening. We arrived slightly early. The person seating us asked us to follow her upstairs and attempted to seat us at a small table approximately 12 inches from the top of the staircase. The chairs for the table were positioned so that you were forced to watch everyone walking up and down the stairs. There was not enough room to reposition the chairs so that you could enjoy a conversation. I have never seen a table placed so close to the stairs and found the placement odd and unappetizing.
We did not sit down because people were leaning on the chairs which were basically in the standing room only of the bar area. We asked for another table and were told we would need to wait a considerable amount of time. I have had a previous experience with Virtue Feed & Grain when they set us over 30 minutes late for our reservation.
We expressed our frustrations at the front desk and left!
We had a wonderful dinner at Urbano 116, great food and service!
Excellent spot. Fascinating and creative decor that doesn't detract from the ambiance or eating experience. Great place to watch the game, meet friends for a drink, have brunch, go for date night, or hold a function. Just make sure you make a reservation to avoid a wait! Every time we've gone with a reservation, they have taken us right away.
Food is great. Classic combinations done with care and often a little twist to make it their own. There are also a variety of different cuisine options/food styles without overcrowding the menu. Loved the chicken and waffles for brunch and the French dip for lunch/dinner. Looking forward to returning to try out the rest of the menu!
It was amazing!!! Food & drinks is fantastic! Will definitely be back!
