What a gem! Absolutely loved our dinner - a birthday celebration and a delight for all! We enjoyed many appetizers and then had two main courses for three. One, a lamb curry, the kitchen made in an "off menu" variety. Wonderful! And lovely ice cream for dessert with a special birthday treat the kitchen made as a bonus. Service was attentive but not hovering, pleasant and helpful, décor is fun, food wonderful, and the value exceptional. We ate on a weeknight so the restaurant was not very crowded. Really a find, we'll be back! More

Our evening at Vermilion was absolutely delightful. The wait staff was not only pleasantly attentive but also very knowledgeable with respect to the ingredients and preparation of the food. The food was superb. I had the cold pea soup and would say that it is something that must be tried by everyone, even those who have a pea aversion. My tagilatelle bolognese was magnificent. I had thought of ordering only the small portion, but was very glad that I opted for the full serving. It was if I were in Italy! Vermilion is a place you must not miss. More

The food was delicious and well worth the money. Jerry noticed we had been waiting for our appetizers to come and brought a complimentary dish to try (spinach wafers?) which was great. Since we were celebrating an anniversary event they also brought complimentary Kulfi in the end which was delicious. Will definitely return for their service and good food. More

We know why he has won so many awards. Alot of people don't realize how hard it is to daily smoke meat, guess how much to smoke, and have it taste like it was cooked at home. The brisket was so tender and tasty at 5 in the afternoon. The pork belly was like candy. The ribs were a tad overcooked and a little dry, but a little sauce took care of that. The collard greens and the baked beans were excellent. More

On our annual Cherry Blossom Festival trip to Washington, my wife and I slipped through a portal at 305 Washington Street in Alexandria, VA. A humble setting, nothing to jump up and down about, but a hidden gem. Climbing a steep staircase, a turn to the right and a room as close to Italy as one could get. The pleasant, young lady ushered us to two tables and we were invited to pick a table between one in the center of room and another immediately in front of a baby grand piano. We picked the one close to the piano. After our wine warm-up, we ordered the Caesar salad. Ohhh... simply heaven! Balance, romaine lettuce blended with anchovies and crotons forced a discipline to put the darned fork down before you had no room to eat the main reason for coming there in the first place. With the beautiful music flowing from a wonderful pianist, our order of ossobuco arrived. It was incredible! The silky brown gravy infused with wine flavors, lathering carrots, onion, mushrooms and the like flowed beyond the tender veal shanks beyond to the delicious chef nurtured pasta. This place is a sine qua non for lovers of fine cuisine by a master chef. Each and every year will find us back again. Dr. Reg Sevayega More
