The service is great. Run with care and skill. From the hostess to bartenders to wait staff - top notch service. Packed house and was served immediately. Fined tuned service all around and outstanding food. Calamari grilled tender with real nice mild sauce. Spinach salad best ever, homemade pasta, excellent fish. Prices very reasonable for the creativity and quality. Healthy... More

Hosted team dinner. Excellent food in a nice and elegant, welcoming interior. All dishes very good, but especially recommend the fish/seafood. Staff friendly and helpful.

We went there with friends and had a great meal. Had a really tough time hearing each other . I heard if you seat in the front rather than the back it's a lot quieter

Re-vamped Vasili's definitely gives famous Washington area foodie joints a run for the money. We were thoroughly impressed. Flavors carefully preserved in creative dishes - check. Attentive and speedy service - check. Decor to enjoy but not overwhelm the main purpose of the visit (the food) - check. Loved literally everything we ordered. Celery root soup is a must. Looking...

We liked the food (high quality and quite flavorful) and the attentive service, but felt the price was rather high for the area.

Thank you for the honest feedback. Each of our dishes is created using fresh, local ingredients that are never frozen. We offer a wide range of options including salads and spreads that are generous portions and are under $10 each. Our handmade pasta dish is very filling and is priced under $20. Our hope is that you will return to... More

We fall into the category of missing some of the more traditional dishes that made the old Vasilli's so well liked. I had not read the recent reviews before our maiden visit so we were surprised at the HUGE change in food as well. I now have read some management feedback regarding what items were kept and it is clear... More

Our culinary team has worked incredibly hard to create a playful discourse between local ingredients and elements of Mediterranean cooking that speak to the senses. All... More

We were semi-regulars at the former Vasili's in the Kentlands. It was one of our go-to's whenever we wanted a quiet, relaxing and delicious meal. Though that restaurant was small, we were never turned away if willing to wait a reasonable amount of time (about 20 mins). The whole atmosphere was warm, homey and friendly, and the close quarters sometimes... More

Freshly prepared, good-for-you food. Some sourced locally. Very good combinations of ingredients. Clean and modern decor, attentive employees. Could lower the volume on background music. Otherwise, perfect dinner!

Simple. WONDERFUL! Simply wonderful! Service, atmosphere, and food. LOVED the light and airy taramosalata, with its creamy and dreamy texture and beautiful basil oil contrast. My favorite! The octopus, unfortunately not a hit. But I am painfully aware of how hard it is to cook octopus. The acid balance and the crunchy fennel in their ceviche, won me over as... More

Beautiful decor, trendy atmosphere and really good food! The new Vasili's space is a welcome addition to the Kentlands restaurant scene. By 6pm on a Friday the place was packed. The locally sourced food, house made parpadelle pasta, fava spread and sourdough bread were fantastic. The servers and manager were all very pleasant and accommodating. Some staff seemed a little...
