Great food and service at a former granary with a rustic ambiance. The duck meatloaf was wonderful as was the wild boar burger. It was a great place for lunch.
Wonderful dinner. Great place to take the college aged kids while home in spring break.
Haven’t been here in a while but my wife and I are planning on making this a more frequent destination. Nothing fancy but very satisfying. A nice variety of menu options.
All around great service and food, but yes noise level is very energetic!
Food was oily.
Second visit here. Excellent food and very good service both times. There are no bad menu options and something for everybody. Nice location on Old Town waterfront. Prices competitive for area it's in.
The food is was ok. The restaurant is extremely noisy. We were seated right next to the entrance which meant we were next to a constant line of people checking in and a very busy thoroughfare for the wait staff.
Fun evening! Great burgers and beer and the staff was excellent!
The prime rib French dip sandwich was amazing!! Great spot for dinner!
Excellent service, good variety on the menu - easy to eat glutine & dairy free, very import to me! It’s a bit loud but not overwhelming - & it was a Friday night & very busy!
I’ve been there several times over the past 4-5 years and never had any experience that was not fun & a great dining experience! Do yourself a favor and GO!!
We were lucky enough to sit in the back of the upstairs, with a view of the water. Our waiter was excellent, gave us enough time, no rushing. The food is always good. We celebrated with very good wine.
We will go back, probably weekly!
Date night with my husband and we had made a reservation. Table wasn’t ready when we arrived, but grabbed a drink at the bar - no big deal. 20 minutes go by, nothing from the hostess so I go check. She looks at me like I’m crazy for a second, says that our table has already been sat (it was just the two of us, so, no) but they get us a table downstairs.
The waitress comes over once and we do have our drinks from the bar, and we order food immediately. She does not come over again - even though our glass had been empty - until we had literally almost finished eating. I had to go get her to tell her we wanted to order another round.
Seriously disappointed as they were definitely catering more to the tourists than a local couple. I love this spot, and you have a great wine list, but definitely wary to come back
Always great, and love the upstairs ambience!
I was treating two of my friends who both had the same dish (salmon) got sick.
First time here. Great experience. Great service. Great food. I had the pan seared salmon. Moist, not overcooked. I'm going back.
Third time there and it did not disappoint! I would definitely recommend it to others.
Overall this was an extraordinary restaurant. The food was amazing. Best Mac and cheese appetizer. Had fish tacos and rack of ribs. All extremely tasty and well prepared.
Downside was it was too dark. Our table was in a corner and it was impossible to read the menu or see your food.
When I made the reservations I requested that it was my daughters birthday and was assured it would be acknowledged. The waiter had no knowledge but the manager did take care of it. Thank you
Excellent location and atmosphere. Service was outstanding. A tad pricey, but given the location.....expected. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for an enjoyable lunch/dinner.....or just a couple of drinks at the bar. I'm coming back!
Ordered a Burger and Duck Poutine for lunch. Burger was not seasoned and just bland. Poutine was decent but not amazing - it was what I mainly ate since the burger was so flavorless. Service was mediocre at best, provided little to no direction when I asked about the menu. I had higher expectations for Virtue Feed & Grain after researching restaurants, made a reservation for lunch based on my research and was disappointed. I travel to Alexandria often and wouldn’t put this on my revisit list.
Excellent service. Pleasant atmosphere. Great location. Reasonable prices. Highly recommended.
Great experience at Virtue!! Top notch service with a very exciting and diverse menu.
Jack was our wonderful, attentive waiter. Love Virtue!
Nice atmosphere and great service, food was nice size portions
Went for brunch. It was crowded (as always). The server was fairly MIA. We didn't get refills of drinks, she put in the wrong appetizer order, never came to check on us and took forever to get the check. We were visiting with friends so we were fine not being rushed but my son was starting to get antsy/ want out of the highchair. The space for the table/ high chair was also not ideal as he was getting into the walkway and people kept bumping him. On my reservation I asked for a high chair so it was disappointing we weren't put at a table that was more accommodating for this. Overall food was good although I didn't like the hushpuppies, they were too mushy for me.
We loved our service and our waiter! Virtue is our favorite place to go for Sunday brunch. My husband and I always get the Chesapeake Bendedict and the Chicken and Waffles. However, Virtue has stopped using an English muffin on the bottom of their Benedict. Instead, they replaced it with a piece of bread that was soggy, mushy and broke apart before it got to our table. It was not appetizing and was not a true Benedict. Disappointed in this as it has always been our favorite place. Hopefully this was just a one-off instance.
Food and service is excellent. A tad bit noisy, but not an issue overall. A little disappointed that the Valentine’s Day menu wasn’t available, even though online, it said it would be available through Sunday. Nevertheless, food was superb and Ryan was on point. We will definitely be back.
The food is good, the ambiance is lovely. My complaint is that we had made a reservation, came about 15 minutes early to the restaurant, and were still seated 20 minutes after the reservation time. We didn’t mind waiting until the reservation time, but did mind the additional 20 minutes given we did arrive early for a reservation made weeks prior.
I liked the place,food was good and ambience was nice. Took my husband here for his Birthday. I put a note in the reservations through open table, I would have liked them to at least acknowledge we were celebrating his birthday, or something to the fact since it was in the notes. If the notes don’t get read then what’s the point of having that field there to add the occasion.
Exceptional service, excellent service, friendly and very nice servers. Could not ask for a more lovely place.
We've been to virtue plenty of times for their great happy hour and always enjoyed it. They really stepped it up for Valentine's Day dinner though. We had excellent service throughout our visit and the food was delicious. The char-grilled oysters were the best we've had since we were in New Orleans. Let's hope they add them to their regular menu. My New York strip was cooked to perfection and my wife loved her swordfish. Great service and great food will keep us coming back.
Bit noisy and tables close together. But other than that it is great.
Service was outstanding. I ordered the boar chops and the wife ordered the salmon. The salmon was cooked perfectly and highly recommend. I received two chops. One boar chop was tough and grisly. The other was tender and tasted great. Not sure what happened between chops.
Food was delicious, as always. Scott was our Server and he was awesome - professional, helpful, and attentive. I have dined at Virtue several times, and this time, I introduced a friend to the restaurant. She loved it and we’ll be back!
This is my second time eating at Virtue Feed & Grain, the food was great both times. The service this time around wasn’t horrible but it was mediocre. I will visit again.
Quite a spot in Old Town!! Great ambiance. Near the river, sunslight, couches, cozy!
Must shout to be heard at the table. Would otherwise give 5 stars overall. Server Zoe was excellent at being very personable & friendly, attentive, and making recommendations when asked.
Food presentation was good but flavor was so-so. Some bites were really salty and meat had little flavor. This is the first time I wasn't impressed with the food. The noise level is high and add music in the background makes it difficult to converse even in the dining area.
Great service....Zoe is awesome! Food, setting, everything was wonderful. The only downside is that it’s really noisy so if you’re trying to have a conversation, it’s a bit problematic. We love it here and it will always be a top pick.
Overall a good experience. Only improvement would be to increase the lighting.
