Vermilion offers deceptively simple modern American cooking in the heart of Old Town, Alexandria. From Chef Thomas Cardarelli's regional cuisine using local, farm-raised products whenever possible to the warmth of its ambiance and the gracious hospitality its staff brings to the table, Vermilion serves as an ideal location for a casual weekday dinner, a special occasion destination or simply a great gathering place for drinks.

Great way to bring in the new year. Delicious menu. Great service. Wish the bread had been refilled and the lemon dessert was a bit disappointing but otherwise fabulous.

My wife and I have come to vermilion for new years eve dinner for the last 3 years. Unfortunately they have a new chef this year. The food was great and I will still recommend vermilion for the food but the wine pairing this year was just ok where in previous years it was amazing. None of the wines transformed with the food. With the exception of the port all wines came from Italy. It made me think the chef really handicapped his selection by only choosing Italian wines. Next year my wife and I will have to find a new restaurant for new years.

Sampled the tasting menu with wine pairing. I was blown away by the creative and complex tastes, complimented nicely with the wine. Walked away with a new favorite wine! The service was excellent too. The waiter was able to recommend excellent pairings for items not on the tasting menu. Would love to return again!
