Love returning to Vios for a taste of Greece. Unpretentious, but well-crafted dishes.

Great place for kids as they have a fun kids' play area. If you're there with a little one they seat you by the play area so you can watch over your child while you eat! The service has always been good and they have a great menu.

Great food and service for this group of five with a 2 year old. The children's play area was a life saver for the parents !!

One of the three servers was actually pleasant. One who was that manager was a jerk and was very short with us. The other male server was snarky as well. The female server was very pleasant. The food was ok. I don't know if I'll go back.

Great meal and of course the kids loved the play area and kids menu. We were a little long getting seated (even though we had a reservation) but I understand it was a busy night and that's how it goes in the restaurant business. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, helpful and efficient and the food was delicious. I especially loved the dolmas and the red pepper dip.

One persnickety little things: I like my Ouzo room temperature, no ice, and it was served in a rock glass with ice - not what I expected!

Overall, we had a great meal, great food, great service, so 4.5 stars out of 5 is my rating for Vios! We definitely plan to return.

A group of friends visited a friend who lives on Capitol Hill & ate lunch at Vios. It was great food, & for me brought back my experiences while visiting Greece & the great food I had while traveling. Vios is a great find on Capitol Hill. Our waiter was personable & fun.

We chose to sit outside because when we walked in the restaurant for our reservation, all we could hear was the sound of children screaming. It turned out there was only one table occupied – by some parents and their children who were playing in and around the play area. Does a restaurant really need a play Area? So we sat outside at a sidewalk table. A male waiter recited the specials-while sitting on them adjacent table. Offputting!

Great food as always at this lovely neighborhood spot. Fabulous place for the adults in our group to enjoy some wine and delish food while my 2 year old niece enjoyed playing in the designated kid play area in the restaurant. we will be back.

We have been there a couple times. The staff is rude and arrogant. When I use open table to make a reservation they do not respect it and give me preference over walk ups at the same time. They make me wait as though I did not have a reservation. My date found 2 pieces of PLASTIC in her water glass. When that was called to the server Diana's attention, she did not care. No apology or accommodation was offered.

They made graduation dinner special, accommodating the taking of photos, a tight schedule and several special requests. Thanks!

I told the waiter of my food allergy before I ordered. He assured me that I would be fine with my order. After we had the appetizers, he came to tell me that my main course had the ingredient that I just ate in the appetizer!! Luckily, I am not anaphylactic but just broke out in hives!!! The chicken was also very dry. I really would not recommend this restaurant if you have any food allergies. I have never encountered this problem anywhere else as the servers have been very respectful and careful.
