"This was my fourth time at Flat Iron, and I'm happy to see that word seems to be spreading and nearly every table was full. But they are clearly suffering some growing pains with the increased patronage. For example, it really shouldn't take 20+ minutes to get a pre-dinner cocktail. The wait and service staff seemed to be confused and in each other's way. Maybe some more training is in order."

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.

In 1871, the City of Alexandria introduced the Columbia Steam Engine Fire Company. The outfit initially occupied Star Firehouse on the east side of the 100 block of South St. Asaph Street until 1883, when a new station was built for Columbia just across the street at 109 South St. Asaph.<br /><br />126 years later, Alexandria’s Neighborhood Restaurant Group relaunched this historic and beautifully preserved property as Columbia Firehouse, a sumptuous modern American brasserie and bar located in the heart of Alexandria’s Old Town. <br /><br />Columbia Firehouse stands as a historic, beautifully preserved piece of Old Town’s heritage. From the street, the building has changed little while the interior has given way to sumptuous dining rooms on four levels, an atrium an outdoor patio and an exquisitely detailed barroom.

"Our food was not up to its usual high standard. I'm hoping this was an abberation and not an indication of a decline."
