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.

"Our server, Heather, was outstanding. Knew the menu and the wines. Very attentive and personable! A great asset to the restaurant.
We had the Chef's Tasting -- it was very good, but more attention could be paid to the wine pairings. They were OK. They did not take away from the food -- but definitely did not enhance the meal."

Oyamel Cocina Mexicana combines Mexico’s rich regional culinary traditions with modern urban fare. Guests experience an array of antijitos—traditional Mexican snack or small plates—along with authentic tacos, ceviches and an impressive selection of cocktails and tequilas. This is like no Mexican food you have ever experienced. Under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, Head Chef Colin King takes traditional ingredients and techniques and elevates them to deliver dishes and drinks with exceptional creativity and refinement.

"What a great evening--6 of us dear friends met Sunday night at Oyamel--first time to eat at the restaurant and it was an incredible experience. Our waiter, Sergio was fantastic and based on his suggestion, we ordered the Chef Special and they were very accommodating to one in our party who has a severe shellfish allergy. The variety of tapas, the wonderful different flavors of each dish was quite impressive. We had about 11 different tapas, including dessert and by the time dessert was served, no one could eat another bite. We also ordered pitchers of the Oyamel Margaritas with salt foam...keep those pitchers coming! We will be back..."

"I requested a table by the window for lunch with my dear friend and the staff was accommodating. My herb salad was very good -- a bit light on the chicken ($5 extra)...expected a bit more chicken. The pasta dish my friend ordered was very good -- a great light lunch."

Jaleo brings alive the spirit and flavors of Spain with a menu reflecting the rich regional diversity of classical and contemporary Spanish cuisine, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés. Jaleo offers an impressive assortment of tapas, the traditional small dishes of Spain, as well as savory paellas, superb sangrias and a fine selection of Spanish wines and Sherries in a festive, casual atmosphere.

"This was our third time to dine at Jaleo Crystal City and the food was again, spectacular. Our table of 4 shared a few tapas to include the spinach salad w/raisins and pine nuts and salad w/watermelon before the Mediterranean Paella. The Paella was fantastic and after a few tapas, we had trouble finishing the dish."
