The place is nicely decorated, but the food and drinks were alright - not worth the price or the drive out to Alexandria if you're not already there for another reason. Will try again, and update.
My family had a outstanding Valentines dinner. The food, service and ambience were impeccable!
We went for Valentine’s Day and had a reservation. They seated us right away and the service was great! The food was awesome, I definitely recommend the lobster pot pie. The poutine fries were amazing as well.
Server was great and dinner was excellent
Great upstairs table with view of street. Excellent server and food. They actually provided what I requested on open table! Nice ambience; ready to go back
Service was excellent!!!
Great food and service. Everything is great and that's why I keep returning.
Everything was delicious and service was great. A wonderful place for a birthday brunch.
Went here on a Saturday evening with my girlfriend before a show at the MGM.
Cocktails were excellent, particularly the Prince of Persia with the saffron-infused tonic. They also had a good selection of local beers which I always appreciate.
Mac 'n cheese with the smoked gouda was some of the best I've ever had. The wild boar burger and crab cake sandwich were solid, nothing to write home about.
Service was very good for it being a Saturday night, never had to wait longer than 5 minutes to order anything.
The decor was really cool, lots of old wood and leather, probably looks even better in the daytime. I liked the low lighting for dinner. The place is a little crammed for me for a date night, tables were too close together. Noisy too, but that's expected for a Saturday.
Value is on par with other places in Alexandria. Dinner for two and two drinks apiece will set you back $100.
Overall, we were happy. Would definitely eat here again.
One of my favorite restaurant in all of Alexandria. Always a great place for any occasion
Always recommend this spot!!!
Very nice place to visit. The burger is amazing - and I am a burger connoisseur. Prices are a bit on the higher end but it is Old Town, so that is to be expected and they weren’t unreasonable. Server was great and attentive. Atmosphere is wonderful and is a nice place to just hang out with friends. This was my third visit, but the first time I sat indoors (it was pouring rain). If I didn’t live an hour away, I would go there a lot more often.
Great vibe and food! Host was outstanding and overall a great time. Noisy is the only bad thing. The host’s friendliness and recommendations on what to get for dinner was dead on and thought it was cute he came to check on us along with our waiteess
Great! My wife and I were very pleased with everything.
This is only my second or third time to VF&G. Upon entering, it smelled like the place had recently been cleaned, but not the squeaky clean good smell (only negative of the evening). Therefore, I'm super-happy to have been seated upstairs -- the ambiance of which I also preferred. Olivia (?) was our waitress and she was excellent. She was very attentive to my food allergy, and for that I am always immensely grateful. We enjoyed our meal!
Cool decor, our server, Laura, was very nice and informative would definitely return.
Love this restaurant! Food is delicious. Staff and service are superior. Comfortable, upscale rustic restaurant with great energy.
Went there for restaurant week. We choose to do the three course special. The avocado hummus was excellent. My wife enjoyed her salmon and I really liked the flank steak. We had a chocolate and peanut butter pie for dessert.
The food was very good. However, the seating was very cramped and the music was too loud.
1st date. Super time great service from Joey at the bar. Very attentive and engaged. Ate dinner at the bar and stayed for 6 hours ... Didn’t even notice ! Love ambiance too.
Will be back!
Virtue is one of my favorite spots in Alexandria! Great food and service.
Bad service. Sat us at a table next to the kitchen which was super loud. Service was slow, forgot our drink orders, and not accommodating to my wife’s vegan diet even though I told them when I made the reservation that she was vegan. My chair at the table was a bar stool so I was seated a good foot above my wife who was on the padded bench. My fish tacos were cold and overcooked. All in all, it was a pretty bad meal all around.
this was my second and last visit to this restaurant. my first visit was to celebrate a friends milestone bday...the food was pre-selected, and frankly, tasted precooked. i remember the cesar salad being the most bland thing ever—not a hint of garlic, anchovy, lemon or salt...my steak was tough and also very underseasoned.
my boyfriend has loved this place in the past, so we gave it another shot. again, the meal was just not right. we unfortunately/inadvertently came in during restaurant week, but as a former veteran of the business (20+ years), this is the week when a place should shine.
the noise level was also beyond comfortable, and my friends and i had to shout at each other to be heard.
our server was great—very personable and efficient. he was the one good thing about the night.
there are too many other places to eat for me to give this place another go...very disappointing.
Love the atmosphere and the food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive
Went for restaurant week at lunch. Great deal, service, and atmosphere. We were full after the appetizer and had to take the entrees home! Our server Matt was attentive and helpful.
Our server, Sam, was very helpful with choices. He was very knowledgeable. The lights were a little dim. I noticed people using phone lights to read menus. But food and service were great and I have recommended to several folks already. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Very good. Food was nice and a great atmosphere. Would recommend.
Fantastic service—great staff who went the extra mile. Excellent food. Thanks for helping make our first date extra special!
Pros: The food was awesome - well cooked, large portions and hot when it arrived at the table. The service was exceptional, attentive but not hovering. The drinks were cold and refreshing.
Outside tables available
Cons: The lighting was a bit dark, hard to read the menu and the music was a too loud to have quiet / intimate dinner conversation.
The pro's definitely outweigh the cons and we will be going back there!
Usually there’s a wait on weekends. Had a reservation but had to wait, I was a little late though. On the pricey side. Good beer list. Great for groups. Foods not too shabby. Staff is very friendly and welcoming
My salmon burger was warm at best, my wife’s steak tacos were cold. The manager made it right. Avocado humus was exceptionally smooth.
Our waiter, Kyle, was amazing! He made sure we had an incredible experience. Our food was great and I love they they don’t use canola or soy oil.
The arrival / seating was good and we enjoyed the happy hour menu (pork taco’s were a hit with everyone). The Scotch eggs were a delicious new treat. Food and drink delivery were prompt and efficient. The duck meatloaf was deliciously decadent. We didn’t have room for dessert but there’s always next time!
Service started out well with pre-ordered appetizers, but then we had to look for our server to order. Food then took awhile to come out and we again needed to look for someone to bring our bill. Overall atmosphere and food was good.
Staff was nice and attentive. The service was fairly quick and the food very good. We loved the smoked salmon burger and the steak and fries. The only bad thing was that the music from the private party upstairs was way too loud and the only way to communicate was literally yelling, we actually sat right next to each other to hear better. Other than that, we enjoyed the experience.
Great food, service, location!
This is a great restaurant. It is worth making a reservation as it can get very busy. All three of us thought our meals were delicious. The service was great!
Wonderful ambiance, great food, and exceptional service.
A perfect evening out!
Amazing customer service, love this restaurant. I messed up the reservation time and they sat us immediately still
We enjoyed our date night here, and the lively atmosphere on a Saturday night. The food and drinks were delicious, and the customer service from host desk to servers was great. My only complaint was the lack of choices for vegetarian/vegans - there are only 2 entree options. I had the sweet potato tacos, which were very nice. My husband loved his Umami burger and would've happily eaten any of the variety of meat choices the menu offered, but with only 2 meal choices for me, we won't be regular customers here.
