New building that used to be a diner has great atmosphere. Food was well prepared, however several items were too highly salted. Wait staff was attentive. Would only go again if I knew that chef had ratcheted back on the salt.

VASILI'S used to be one of our favorite local restaurants where we knew we could enjoy delicious Greek dishes and a decent glass of wine for a reasonable price. Moving their location to a larger, more central location in the Kentlands designed to imitate the NYC scene while completely trashing there old menu, replacing it with far less tasty choices...

This is a very nice restaurant with a modern, lively setting and stylish décor. Food and drink are very good, so is service. It serves both small plates and meze and also main dishes. The spinach salad was excellent, so was the lamb with pasta (orzo). It has quite a collection of wine and its service is very friendly, efficient... More

While the new Vasili's place is beautiful, the food is not really our style--too rich and oily, not many vegetarian/Vegan options, too pricey for what you get. As a party of five with only one glass of wine ordered, we spent $170 with tip. We had been anticipating the opening of the new Vasili's Kitchen and would have hoped for... More

My wife and I live in Kentlands (Gaithersburg) and yet we often travel to DC, Bethesda, and Arlington for fun, upscale, trendy, restaurants that have great food and a great bar scene. We frequent Bourbon Steak, Del Frisco's, Proof, Zatinya, KingBird, and the Next Whiskey Bar. While in Kentlands (and Gaithersburg) we were frequent guests at the "old" Vasili's. Let... More

It's Greek and it's trendy ... The best of both worlds. When it was smaller it had great Mediterranean food. it still does but more. The lamb chops are the best and the chef makes an outstanding risotto. The ambiance is beautiful and the service is warm, friendly, prompt and not overbearing. The owners are on premise and care about... More

I, too, loved the old Vasilis Mediterranean Grill, and assumed that the new, larger Vasili's Kitchen would have the same menu. When I read the reviews on “Yelp” I was dismayed to find: 1) none of the old foods were on the new menu, 2) the place was cold, 3) the food was cold, 4) the food was terrible, 5)... More

Ordered the grilled lemon chicken (19.00) pork belly gyro meze (10.00) a nice twist,and a Gin(Bombay Sapphire) and Tonic(13.00). They did not have Tangeray, Unbelieveable! At least the drink was strong. Be warned the entree portions are small. I expected the meze plates to be small. The prices are comparable to DC eateries and are overpriced for the area. My... More

The appetizers were wonderful. The prime rib was better than any prime rib I ever had. The surprising part was that I was in a Mediterranean restaurant and had a aged prime rib that was better than any renowned Steakhouse. The service with 5 stars and I highly recommend this restaurant.

I did not visit the previous location of Vasilis much because it was awfully small and hard to get into, but loved the food - beautiful chicken souvlaki, for example. I was looking forward to a new, larger, homey space. Unfortunately they have decided to go "hip and new" so it's quite a bit different than the old location. The... More
