"Being close to the hotel business hub, one has to be careful not to sacrifice quality with convenience. Azio turned out to be a great choice! The food was great as was the service. The cozy atmosphere sealed the deal too. I would definitely go back."

Located in the heart of Old Town in the historic Crilley Warehouse, OVERWOOD is a wood-fired American kitchen and bar featuring modern interpretations of traditional classics. As the name implies, our kitchen is built around hardwood-fueled cooking (grill, oven & smoker) and we will use only the freshest and finest ingredients in every dish.

Tucked into a little off beat corner of Old Town Alexandria is Bastille, Chefs Christophe and Michelle Poteaux's award winning intimate bistro and wine bar. Bastille offers guests a contemporary take on classic French fare at approachable prices, set in a warm and upscale environment. <br /><br />The Poteaux's creations are sparked by traditional, yet modern interpretations of classic dishes that utilize seasonal, locally sourced and farm fresh ingredients. With an expansive wine list, unique beer selections and creative cocktails, Bastille has a little something for everyone.

Joe Theismann’s Restaurant, “Comfortable, Convenient, Classy & Established” is unique in character & difficult to categorize. For 35 years, it has melded the venues of fine dining, neighborhood grill & sports viewing. Implementing its original concept as a comfortable, friendly dining spot with great food & good value Joe Theismann’s offers what many restaurants don’t, character & personality. Patrons return for food quality, consistency & excellent staff. Although on the cutting edge in TV technology, the high score is for an exceptional dining experience. Not a chain/franchise, menu items are not stamped out, but prepared from scratch for seasonal freshness & customer preference. The range of offerings, Sea Bass in Tomato Basil Butter & Filet Mignon to hearty sandwiches, has survived the competition. The loyal following encompasses daily customers, tourists & local residents. Stop in. Celebrate an event, meet friends for lunch or just drop by for happy hour. Become a regular.

Vermilion offers deceptively simple modern American cooking in the heart of Old Town, Alexandria. From Chef William Morris' 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.
