Our waiter, Noah, was attentive, kind and provided some good recommendations. Portions are large so no need to worry about leaving on an empty stomach (two people in our party left with food). Restaurant quite loud and boisterous and one of guests at our table was forced to continually lean in to hear me speak. Restrooms small so be aware of possibility of a wait on busier days. Historic building/location with great character throughout. Good choice to take out of town visitors to due to location and ambiance. Fish tacos were ordered by several at our table after waiter recommendation and did not disappoint.

Great location and lovely inside, but there are much better restaurants in Old Town for this amount of money. Entrees were salty and just ok.

A very pleasant dining experience although our waitress got several things wrong. She was big on personality and charm, but unfortunately not at all on accuracy.

We were especially appreciative of the staff’s willingness to accommodate our request to move indoors, once we determined it was too hot and humid outside. They were pleasant and helpful.

The setting is really nice and the service was good. The menu is very diverse - sometimes "something for everyone" isn't a good thing. But the food prep was good.

Love, love, love this place!! The best tacos and chips/dip ever! As well as margaritas! It isn’t even a Mexican restaurant as it offers a far range of variety of food, but this is where I see myself eating my favorite type of food any time I’m in old town!

We sat outside around 10 pm. Very nice setting.The Moscow Mule we ordered was watered down but the donuts holes were great. Chairs uncomfortable!

We were saying goodbye to an amazing boss as he’s getting ready to leave for his next adventure. There was a group of 10, the first “post-COVID” weekend, and everything was amazing. Our waitress did a great job taking care of a large group and the food was amazing as always.

I was disappointed that our reservation did not cover patio seating. I requested patio in my comments because I planned on and did bring my dog. I ended having to wait. The reservation was pointless.

Honest review:

Duck Putine Fries - Amazing!!!
Burger was pretty good.
Got the Southwest Caesar Salad as a side - Amazing!!! I'd go back just for this salad.
Wife had the enchiladas - said they were pretty good.

We loved everything about our experience at Virtue! It was a perfect evening reconnecting with old friends. From the incredibly friendly welcome we received and the beautiful decor to the attentive service we couldn’t have been happier. And of course none of this would have mattered if it weren’t for the delicious food. Between the four of us we had fish tacos, salmon, sweet potato tacos, chicken fajita quesadillas, and a couple appetizers to share. One tip: I’d recommend asking for a side of aioli sauce with the sweet potato tacos.

The calamari appetizer was delicious and the branzino was good. The vegetables were undercooked and not so fresh and the dessert (flourless chocolate cake) was average.

The food on a Tuesday evening was alright but the service was slow and inattentive. I asked for a box multiple times and it never came so I had to leave more than half my entree on the plate. It took quite a while to get the check and pay. Overall I wasn’t impressed.

The food at Virtue is always delicious! Our server this time was on her last day of training and she did a fantastic job. She was so friendly and was trying so hard, we loved having her at our table!
