Inside, was a little noisy, but got to eat outside where it was quieter, and nice. The food was amazing, except it did take a little long to receive the food, except it was totally worth the wait. Loved every minute being there, sangria was great, and so was the salmon. Our waiter José was charming, and funny. Will defently go back again!
We were able to sit outside on a beautiful evening. Even though it had been a hot day, the umbrellas provided enough shade that it was comfortable. The server was a little busy, so the wine came after we had half finished our food, but he was otherwise very good, friendly and attentive. The food was all delicious! We had the rockfish, the salmon and the short ribs. All the side items were cooked perfectly. We were especially happy to sit outside, though, because unknown to us there was a wedding reception going on in the upstairs portion of the restaurant. It was very loud, so sitting inside would have not been as pleasant. It would be nice to know a detail like that when making reservations. If sitting outside had not been an option we wouldn't have wanted to eat there with the reception going on. Lucky us, it all worked out!
Price point is a little high for me, but very good food!
I arrived early for my reservation and was seated early even though the rest of my party was not yet present. The staff was quick to check in with us and meet our needs. Employees were personable and not intrusive. Eggs Chesapeake arrived in a reasonable amount of time and we’re delicious, as was the peanut butter pie! It was a busy Saturday with gorgeous weather when were enjoyed our brunch. The restaurant was staffed well to handle the crowd. I highly recommend Virtue Feed and Grain.
Booked the wrong Sunday for brunch and they totally got us in quick. Staff was very friendly and prompt. Food was great as well.
Salmon burger was overcooked? It didn't even look smell or taste like salmon. My lady was highly upset because the reviews were so high.
Or waiter wasn't quite attentive to us. I understand we're a young couple 28/26 but still. My sweet potato tacos were good but the food was also Luke warm.
I love Virtue Feed and Grain. The menu is lovely, as are both the service and servers. Unfortunately, at this last visit, the noise level was beyond the pale. The survey uses the word “energetic” for the highest level. Deafening is a better descriptor. I don’t know that anything can be done to improve that, but don’t plan on intimate one-on-one conversations during the busy hours at the restaurant!
Not too impressive.
Really enjoyed the food and the setting. Will absolutely go back soon!!
Our server was helpful and attentive. My concerns are with the food quality and cost. The menu is very expensive for what you get. Quality is lacking. I was told to get the boat chops the way the chef prepares them, this was supposed to be medium rare-medium. The chops were brought out grey, therefore well done. The other huge concern was that my food, as well as my fiance's food, had what I hope to God were egg shell pieces in my food. It honestly could have passed for egg shell pieces or paint chips. Neither of our items involved egg (a burger and fries and boar chops) so I don't know how egg shells got into the food. We're out items sitting out for a long time and someone cooked over them spilling egg shells on our food? Perhaps. I honestly don't know how else she'll pieces got into the food. That, in and of itself, is gross. Not to mention the server engaged in a long conversation about how to prepare the boat and it was served well done. What's the point of even bringing up how meat should be prepared if you're just going to over cook it or worse, leave it sitting out under a light so it continues to cook. For those reasons, this establishment is no where near worth the price. And I will not be coming back or recommending the restaurant. Honestly, don't waste your time.
Weekly Date night. The ambiance was great, the food was good only note was that the white sangria was weak. Didn’t even taste like sangria. More like fruit juice.
Our waiter was amazing (can’t remember his name). The food and drinks were amazing.
Great service and food. Perfect location.
Mother’s Day lunch!!!
The food was good but limited selection
Only because so many if my friends are vegetarian and there were so few options.
The noise level was beyond horrible, even outside. Our guests asked why we chose this restaurant because it is so noisy that you can’t talk or hear each other. The food was good and family priced.
Went there for a early mother’s day brunch on Saturday only to find out brunch is only served on Sunday. Despite the fact that before making the reservation I called to check that brunch was available on Saturday. Food was fine, but we’d really been looking forward to brunch so it put a damper on things. Waitress didn’t seem very enthusiastic or attentive & not very apologetic about the brunch confusion. Food was fine but I’ll be a bit hesitant to go back.
Food was quite good, I had the swordfish tacos. Server was a bit awkward. Not as awkward as my date though haha. That last detail may have jaded my experience a bit. May try it again if I’m back in Old Town.
Always great food & superior service at Virtue! We also met Chef Aldo. Wow - What an awesome surprise! Thanks Scott.
An enjoyable and lively spot for dinner with the ladies. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Food was great!
Food was excellent. Server pushed us to order, rushing us. Annoying.
Well, the atmosphere was very nice. I enjoyed the rustic vibe of the restaurant. The hostesses were pleasant and greeted us with a smile. Our server lacked any enthusiasm when serving us. It was almost like they were there but not really present. I did not like how they interacted with us. Our water glasses did not appear to be very clean and my coffee mug was sticky in some places. Also, my food was nuke warm when it arrived but the food was good. My company did enjoy their meal and the coffee came out nice and hot. I did go on a Sunday during lunch hour, so that might be the reason for some issues.
Tasty brunch with great mimosas and bloody mary's, and the banana muffins are wonderful!
Awesome meal and place!!
It was great being able to eat outside!
This is one of my favorite spots in Alexandria. Great food! I tried the sweet potato tacos, and they were really good! I always walk out feeling happy.
The staff was AMAZING and you can’t beat the location. Compared to the rest of the restaurants on Kind street, the food was cheaper, but wasn’t that good. The pork tacos were not seasoned and mostly fillers (I.e lettuce). The drinks were pretty bad and watered down
Some very unique and tasty preparations! Always an adventure.
Delicious food. Great ingredients. Interesting decor.
Our server Jack was outstanding!
The fish tacos were good and fresh although I suggest they cut the tilapia into smaller pieces. Duck fat fries were also very good.
Good food, good service. Music was a little too loud for dining.
We always enjoy our Virtue Feed & Grain experiences. Their food is delicious and quickly prepared. The drinks are amazing and great value. There's a reason why reservations fill up quickly here.
Food was extremely average but the ambiance was very nice. Beautiful location. Unfortunately the food was very disappointing/underwhelming.
Really enjoyable venue and great staff. Food and drinks menu are very good.
Nice place, great location, good food and warm attention.
Overall, was a great experience. However, we did have to wait more than 15 minutes to be seated despite a reservation being made. Other than that, great place to dine.
Not as good as previous visits. Heard a lot about the duck poutine but was not impressed. Fries were Soggy and not well seasoned. Service was also a little off but this won’t prevent of from returning. We’ve always had good experiences previously.
Service was great and food was delicious!!! Very nice atmosphere !!!
