Needed a quiet high quality place in DC and Vidalia fit the bill. Friendly and attentive but not overbearing service, interesting menu and great food. Great environment for having a conversation too.
This restaurant was very good. Great spot for a business lunch. The bread basket was PHENOMENAL! Food was excellent.
Overall the food was good. The she-crab soup was delicious, as were the breads. Unfortunately, I ordered the trout and while it was tasty there were so many bones that I eventually gave up on it and just chatted with my friends instead. The sweet tea was also delicious, and given that good iced tea is hard to find in DC, that made up for the bones for me.
Has been a little while since my last visit to Vidalia. The food is still wonderful! Enjoyed a smoked rabbit loin that was fantastic, and an incredibly "light" pecan pie! However, the service was really slipshod. Was not brought either the wine list or the "specials" menu until I asked for it. Waiter seemed indifferent the whole time and not really helpful. This detracted from the overall wonderful experience of the food.
A very pleasant business lunch for a party of 9. The booking was in fact for 8 and Vidalia was able to quickly accommodate an unexpected additional person. The assigned table was on the upper level which was ideal for our business discussions as the area was secluded and quiet. The food was superb and the attention first class. Highly recommended.
The atmosphere, ambiance, food, and service is excellent! Loved the staff!
A return to one of my longtime DC favorites was a great experience. As usual, Vidalia was up to the challenge, serving well above average food along with excellent service. I particularly enjoyed the deconstructed pear cobbler, but it was all very tasty! I look forward to my next encounter!
second visit and the quality of the food was still 4 star.
Pork chop was tasty but a tad dry for my liking. It was cooked medium. So could a medium rare might have been better. Friendly wait staff and the bread service was excellent.
Mediocre food and terrible service...will never go there again
Delicious food, attentive service, elegant surrounding
Should have walked out when we arrived -- restaurant empty for a Saturday night, seated at corner banquette and host neglected to pull out table ( it was a squeeze) amuse bouche came -- on two spoons for three people ( odd) I had a tasteless watermelon gazpacho followed by a dry pork chop. My husband had fish with a lobster sauce ( he was ill afterwards.) it was a disappointing and pricey experience not to be repeated. The highlight was the bread plate -- four different kinds.
The food and cocktails were both amazing. My wife and I went to celebrate her birfday, and were fully satisfied by the great food and terrific staff. Best shrimp and grits (so freakin' creamy) I've ever had. And the freshly smoked Manhattan really hit the spot.
Wonderful dining experience! I had the tasting menu, it was superb! Service was great. I enjoyed every dish. Perfect place to dine for special occasions. Or just because!
Restaurant choisit un peu au hasard pendant notre séjour à Washington. Nous nous n'attendions pas à un restaurant de cette gamme et nous n'étions pas habillé comme nous aurions du.
Le rapport qualité prix est très intéressant avec un menu entre plat dessert à 35$. La qualité des ingrédient et la cuisine du chef est sans reproche.
Le vin est un peu cher par rapport au prix des plats.
As always, the food was amazing. However, the service was horrible. It took about 15 minutes for someone to come over and take our drink order, and about 20 minutes to get the desert menus. The tables with more than two people in the same room received more attention than us, and often times we could not gain the attention of our server, who wouldn't look in our direction. Incredibly disappointed.
Always a pleasurable experience, from the first greeting to the final taste of dessert, Vidalia never disappoints. An adult restaurant that serves food that is interesting and satisfying, with service to match. Such a treasure.
Excellent dining experience was had at vidalia! The service, food, and ambience was just perfect!
Our get together was during Restaurant Week, which often affects food quality. We felt the appetizer course was very good, but the entree just ok, and dessert choices need some spiffing up.
Excellent food, even during Restaurant Week, even though it was disappointing that we had to pay extra to get a steak for my son. They took good care of his gluten-free needs.
