It's the usual --omelettes, grits. There is cheese in every brunch dish. The locale is charming and in-town, so it's fine to start an afternoon of walking around historic Alexandria. Probably a better dinner option. Almost empty on the Sunday I was there,

The second-floor view and wonderful service were the icing on my visit to the Vermilion. The Tarrine, the omelet, as well as the Bloody Marys, everything was scrumptious. It was not terribly busy when I was there, I hope the service is this good when...More

The food was perfect, all local and homemade. They seem conscious about food allergies and had good wine... can't ask for more.

We had a group of 23 that they very nicely accommodated on a Saturday night and we had a four-course menu to enjoy. Every piece was excellent!! The staff were very attentive and diligent and the quality was excellent for what we paid. Fantastic spot!

Vermilion features Chef William Morris' menu of Contemporary American cuisine. Complimenting Chef Morris' menu is Vermilion's wine list, named one of the top wine lists in the country by Restaurant Hospitality Magazine. Combining a charming location in Old town Alexandria with stylized design and atmosphere, Vermilion represents a bit of downtown sophistication: from the exposed brick in the upstairs dining room to the overstuffed pillows in the lounge downstairs, Vermilion holds something for all tastes.
