The food and ambiance is excellent. The service is ok, but not on par with the food and ambiance. It seems like there is a lot of turnover of staff, I don’t think I have ever had the same bartender or server more than once.
Delicious meals, kind server.
The quality was not there this time and the food came out cold on a cold day when you want hot food.
Food was amazing; atmosphere was great, beer was cold!
It was great, hosting people were great, Scott took great care of us. Thank you Virtue team.

Great Old Town venue with a solid wine list and a commendable menu. Service is solid and engaging atmosphere outside. Always a dependably pleasant experience.
Good food, Good service, Good ambiance. We will be back!
We ordered the duck poutine and there was only 4 cheese curds on it meaning there was only cheese for the first couple of bites. It tasted good but wasn’t poutine at that point, just fries with gravy. We also ordered the calamari which was delicious but they only give you a tiny amount of sauce. I also ordered the umami burger which was very tasty but I ordered it medium rare but it came out very rare. Still good but I’m not sure it was quite worth the price.
Great service. The food was acceptable. May I recommend that you remove the chips as an appetizer. You need to step it up. Bar area is great. Again very friendly staff.
This was my favorite restaurant in Alexandria! From the ambiance to the service and food/drinks, everything was amazing. I had the shrimp tacos and got them blackened with a side of the jalapeño slaw and they were easily the best tacos I’ve ever had. Server was fantastic and very knowledgeable and accommodating. Drinks were on point and prices were very reasonable. Will be back!
Big T rules
We went with family that included children. They were very accommodating
Great service, food, and ambience. Great experience all around. Recommend sitting in the upper deck or patio for the best scenery. Will be going back for sure.
This place is the bees knees. We got to sit outside and bring our dog with us. The doggy menu is so cute and our puppy loved it. He cleaned the bowl. We were there to spend time with our parents and we had everything from fish & shrimp tacos, to a veggie platter to the Australian Lamb Chops. The food was phenomenal. We had some crab dip to start. It was so creamy and though the dish looked small it was a solid portion. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly. The tacos were packed with flavor. Just the ability to sit outside close to the water and have our dog with us made this a 10/10 experience.
Always good cocktails and food. Consider eating upstairs. The ambiance is beautiful.
This was such an incredible dining experience!! Will definitely be back!!
delicious food, we were accommodated nicely outside with my son's birthday, they offered a piece of cake with candle. the whole thing was sweet
The atmosphere was nice but needed better lighting where seated. Did not get sear as requested. The food was not good.
We arrived on time and were quickly seated at an upstairs table in the back which was relatively quiet. Our waiter was on his game and gave us great service. Our orders got a little mixed up but we rolled with it and enjoyed our food. All in all a very good experience.
Steak salad dressing was a bit on the sweet side. Steak was perfect.
Had an awesome experience, beautiful atmosphere, can't wait to go back!
Overall we loved our meal here. We came on Saturday with our family of four (mom, dad, toddler, and dog). We each got a meal that we loved. My daughter crushed her buttered noodles, and my dogter devoured her puppy meal. We had a reservation (only good for inside) but were sat within ten minutes for outside. The staff was friendly and considerate even with the high volume of people.
Great experience. Great food, as always.
Our server was exceptional!
Amazing food. Bar staff was great. I splurged on their signature old fashioned and it was worth it!!
Management was not very accommodating with helping to resolve the problem. Booked for a party of 5 with a reservation. They proceeded to sit me at a table of 4 and when I asked about getting another chair the host was rude. She called over a manager and it was embarrassing as they caused a scene in the restaurant. It was a busy night and she it was embarrassing when everyone was looking at me. All I wanted was a 5th chair due to having a reservation for 5.
Overall the food and drinks were awesome, as usual, but the service was subpar.
Awesome time great food and they have blantons!!!
My favorite place to eat in Old Town! Stellar atmosphere and good food
Food and service are always great. Supervisors step in to when needed to ensure great service.
Ordered from Brunch menu, the Chesapeake Eggs Benedict. Well, the bread was mush and had no taste to it. The eggs and crabcake were lukewarm and the food was delivered with 5 minutes of placing an order. So you know it wasn't cooked for you but sloppily reheated. I've tried this place again after numerous disappointments, well the food quality has not improved. This place is off my list.
Great as always. Service was delayed, but there’s a pandemic going on so it’s not an actual problem.
My partner and I had a great time. We enjoyed the food, service, and ambiance. We will be coming back soon.
The short ribs were recommended and were delicious. I would get them again.
Overall experience was just okay. We were hoping that the food would be great as the menu was appetizing and unique as we saw lots of dishes that we wanted to try, but unfortunately the food did not leave a good impression. I had a vegetarian dish which was not flavorful or presented well. My guest has a burger with duck fat fries. The fries were not at all good. Service was good. Best part of our experience was the decor which was stylish and had a unique aesthetic in the interior.
Food came out quick and was very good. Our server was a little cold (i.e., not too friendly) and we felt a little rushed, which was odd considering the place was far from packed.
Lovely spot on the Potomac to enjoy a drink, snack, or full dinner. We had the salmon burger and tuna poke salad and both were very tasty. They have a lot of through COVID precautions in place: hand sanitizer on every table, social distancing, all staff were wearing masks (many double masked), and reservations encouraged. They have heaters on the patio, though they were not needed when we visited.
They have a varied menu and something for everyone. The tacos also looked delicious and will try those next time!
This may be my new favorite place. The food was incredible, not just good. The service was great and the menus had great choices, which were a great deal for the money spent. The duck poutine was a must when I go again. I eat fish tacos everywhere I go and these are the best so far! The fish was not fried- thank you very much! The salsa verde on them was amazing! My friend had the sweet potato tacos. She said they were delicious and she got a side of that salsa verde and said then they were even better!!
Love this place! Great food, great wine, perfect dinner spot with great friends! Can’t wait to go back!!!
Enjoyed first time visit to Virtue Feed and Grain to celebrate a family member’s birthday. Made a reservation in advance and we were seated right away on arrival. We were waited on promptly and our waitress was friendly and attentive. We each enjoyed our food and drinks and plan to return again. While we ate inside, I loved that there was a lot of outside seating available. GREAT!!
We usually like Virtue, but our experience for brunch was lackluster at best. The waiter rarely checked on us, forgot beverage orders, and we had to specifically ask for refills on things like water. When we mentioned that the food was overcooked and seemed like it had been sitting a while, he didnt acknowledge the comment, just walked away. Usually we like Virtue but was very disappointed with this experience.
