This was the best Greek restaurant I have ever been to. Everything was cooked to perfection (especially, really especially, the octopus)! I have nothing to complain about here. Prices were standard for this type of place (although, cheaper is always better).
I suggest everybody trying out something different and sharing because, trust me, all their food is excellent. Definitely will go again on my next trip to Toronto.

Satruday evening Pre-Ballet dinner
Thank you for a wonderful meal. The service was excellent and although it was "rush hour" I thought the staff did a
very good job and again, service was excellent.
Food wonderful. We were at the Four Seasons in plenty of time and our meal did not feel rushed.
Thank you for a wonderful meal and will return again !

Quite enjoyable dinner
we ordered 3 appetizers and shared: shirmp, the beef meatballs and saganaki. All were very tasty and well presented. Bread was very nice and the olive oil for dipping was also a nice choice. Main courses were the special of the day (whole sea bass), lamb shanks and large sea scallops. Again, all well presented very tasty and sufficient portions. Dessert were very nice as well. The chocolate mousse was thick enough to be presented scooped like ice cream into the dessert dish and had a very nice taste. I had the flourless chocolate cake which was similar in texture to the mousse (a little denser) and was less sweet than the mousse by comparison. It could have used with just a bit more chocolate depth to it, but otherwise quite nice.

Great Place to Wait Out A Storm!
We had a wonderful evening. Just as we finished ordering our food the lights went out but despite that the staff still cooked us an exquisite meal, gave us wonderful service, provided some extra candle light and were attentive. It was one of the best meals. We had no idea that the rest of Toronto was so deluged! Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Great Greek Food
We enjoyed Volos very much. Tasty Greek food in a downtown location.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have ordered 6 appetizer and all are very good to amazing quality. The grilled calamari and grilled squid are the best we ever had. It is incredibly tender!! Well done job!! Will definitely go back!!

Fantastic service with really good
Chose the resataurant due to Summerlicious. It was a fantastic surprise. The service was the best I have in a long time and the appetizers and main courses my friend and I had were superb. While her dessert was also great, mine was only so-so. I will definitely be back and will recommend the restaurant to others
It is a bit noisy.

summerlicious hot spot
2013 summerlicious participant; The ambience, decor, and overall atmosphere is chic, with a twist of mediterranean comtemporary design with its pottery, and green glass lamps that hang.
The food is very intriguing from a culinary perspective, their watermelon feta salad drizzled with a light raspberry vinegarette fresh & refreshing flavors is a perfecto 5/5!!
Exohico : Phyllo Pastry, Braised Lamb & Vegetables, Feta Kefalotyri Cheeses. Think of it as your much bigger SPANAKOPITA! decisiously hands down, the infused flavors of the pulled lamb, greens, feta to only be craddled in their flakey filo dough!!! 5/5
dessert: Ouzo Chocolate Mousse Semi-sweet Dark Chocolate Mousse. Perfect balance of dark chocolate and smoothness. 4/5

My boyfriend and I were very
My boyfriend and I were very excited to try this restaurant! We had a reservation on a Monday night at 8pm and we ended up arriving a little earlier. The hostess was very friendly and she seated us right away. The summerlicious menu was amazing, we loved every bite of the food. We weren't as impressed with our waiter as everything seemed like an inconvenience to him and it didn't seem like he wanted to be serving us. When I mentioned to the hostess our disappointment in the service, she brought out the manager who was absolutely amazing and offered to take care of us and to give the restaurant another chance. I would definitely come back - The manager really cared about my feedback and resolved the issue.

We had a loveley time at Volos. The food was outstanding & the service was great.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have explored a few restaurants in Greek town, but have never tried Estiatorio Volos. I was first a bit dubious about how authentic the food would be, but it seemed very popular on the Summerlicious website. To my delight, the lunch experience turned out to be an excellent one. When walking into the restaurant, I knew it would be a nice one already, spacious and comfortable,mixture of casual yet high class, friendly service. The three course meal was nicely cooked and the portion was just right for my friends and me. Thank you very much!
I noticed that if you go on a normal occasion, the cost is fairly high, but if you would like to treat some one special, I would highly recommend it!:)
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a nice dining experience
Very good food, great service and nice ambiance make this a place I look forward to going. Some dishes a bit pricey, but plenty of dishes in the $20-30 range.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food & charming personel
We loved Volos and we will definitely return. Both the server and the manager/sommelier were genuinely friendly and helpful. We were happy to discover great Greek wines and we ate very well. We especially liked the lamb sausages appetizer and the chocolate mousse, but everything was delicious. Thanks to everyone at the restaurant for making it such an enjoyable evening !
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food!!! Best snapper ever!!! Good service. Nice restaurant, well decorated and inviting.
We/ll be back soon!

Amazing food! The moussaka
Amazing food! The moussaka and the chocolate mousse were to die for. Great ambience! Highly recommended
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
great Toronto downtown restaurant
We had a great meal at Estiatorio Volos -- from fresh fish in a delicious sauce to wonderful moussaka. The appetizers were tasty and interesting and the service was great. The restaurant is also pretty -- kind of sleek, but with comfy chairs.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our lunch party all had seafood type dishes and they were all excellent. Service was great. Nice ambience.

Memorable anniversary celebration
Our family group of 5 enjoyed a delicious, relaxing and memorable evening recently at Volos. We were greeted with sparkling wine and seated in a cosy but spacious round booth table. Every item we ordered was outstanding and the service was superb. The Seafood Kleftiko and Sesame Crusted Feta were particularly memorable, and the specialty dessert coffees were a perfect end to an outstanding meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant - it is by far the best Greek food I've ever tasted!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
i had the seafood orzo and it was really good, i'm not a big eater so I had dinner for 2 nights. baklava though was a bit on the dry side. my friends had the chicken and they all liked it too.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dining experience!
I took my parents to Volos to celebrate their anniversary and I could have not asked for a better experience! The service and food were beyond expectation. Thank you for an incredible dinner!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Different Twist on Greek Cuisine
Wow, the food here is delicious! Calamari, Watermelon and Feta Salad, Lamb in Puff Pastry, Sea Bass... This is not your standard fare. In fact, I do not believe they have pita, souvlaki or dips on their menu. Go! You will be surprised.
9/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
Service was incredibly well timed, our server recommended dishes quite admirably and made us feel most comfortable. Food was ok. Wonderful ambience & love the open kitchen concept.

Lovely Birthday dinner
We planned a family birthday with some people coming from out of town. When some of the party was stuck in traffic, they were extremely accommodating of the delay and made the people who had already arrived feel very comfortable. The food was excellent- the Exohico was so flavorful and we all enjoyed the zuchinni tower. We would definitely go again.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
One word for Volos: AMAZING!
One word for Volos: AMAZING! My boyfriend and I were visiting Toronto for the weekend, and one of the highlights of our trip was our dinning experience at Volos. Food was decadent. We enjoyed the tiger prawn saganaki and the grilled Moroccan octopus to start. We were so impressed with the starters, we wanted to try a couple more, but saved the room for our delicious pistachio encrusted rack of lamb. Ambiance was very unique, elegant yet comforting; it had a contemporary Mediterranean feel to it. As for the service, excellent! Our waiter was friendly, polite, and very helpful during the night. We would definitely go back!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice mix of greek and seafood
We brought clients from out of town and everyone enjoyed their apps and entrees. service was very attentive.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was excellent, The waiter was not intrusive new just when to come by and ask us to order. Good suggestion for the wine as we had limited knowledge about Greek wine. Everything was perfectly time since we had ticket to the Opera that evening so we never felt rushed.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Greek food with class
Volos is a real Greek dining experience. All the staff is truly interested in serving you which a refreshing experience in Toronto.
The food is exquisite with Greek foundation which they built on to make all the food delicious.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good menu, food well-prepared, and service was excellent.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place for a business
A great place for a business lunch/dinner or just a good Greek meal with friends. The shrimp saganaki appetizer was delicious! Service was great and I will likely frequent VOLOS as it's convenient to my work. Menu is varied but limited so you may want to review before you commit. ευχαριστώ
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely restaurant with charming staff. Saganaki was delicious and Ouzo Chocolate Mousse was rich & not too sweet but the highlight was definitely the Exohico which was divine!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great to have an inventive and interesting Greek food option in downtown Toronto. Service slowed as the night went on, but overall was helpful and engaging. Food was very good, with some interesting dishes that you may not find on the Danforth. Strongly recommend.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellence in Greek Dining
Estiatorio Volos takes the greek dining experience in Toronto to a new level. Very sophisticated, Greek inspired menu with some of the traditional items you'd expect to find on most Greek restaurant menus and some interesting new takes on Greek inspired fare. Very nice decor and excellent service. Would definitely make a return visit.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very enjoyable and will be back. Only issues were the soup - which was quite delicious but tepid. Tough to know why as it came up really fast. Main courses (philo-wrapped lamb and seafood pasta 0were both very good. Desert selection was OK -baklava a bit disappointing despite being home made - lacked the usual tons of nuts etc that you put in if you make it yourself but did not really need it anyway - just wanted to try it. Wine selection was also good including the by the glass.
Have to book ahead- esp Sat.

I took my fiancee there this
I took my fiancee there this Saturday and we were both really impressed by the outstanding food and service, but also the ambience. It was a great experience and for the quality of the dinner they could have been more expensive and still would have been able to justify their prices. Great Greek wine too!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A friend and I went for dinner following a long day in meetings. We had a reservation but arrived early. Rather than sit us at the bar we were able to be seated immediately. Our server was immediately at our table to start service. He was personable and helpful and listened to our requests. He was very helpful in his recommendations. He remained attentive the entire evening. The service was excellent and the food was also. We were not rushed through any part of the meal and enjoyed a very leisurely evening without feeling pressured. The restaurant was busy enough but not full so able to accommodate our slower pace. I would definitely go back.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Fine Greek dining in downtown Toronto, great selection of food and wines, professional wait staff, which is a rarity in Canada, reasonable prices, a bit cold near the glass.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hadn't been for Greek food in a while as we had been disappointed (elsewhere) a couple of times. Had a great evening here - really good service and we all liked the contemporary take on Greek dishes. Will go back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent lemon chicken & lentils
Would have liked to order the Beef Moussaka, but after inquiring whether cinnamon or dill were present in the Moussaka, the waiter checked with the chicken and indeed confirmed the presence of cinnamon, so had to pass on that. Instead ordered the lemon chicken with braised black lentils and swiss chard. The chicken is 3 good sized chicken thighs. They come with an almost crispy skin. Just enough lemon flavor, but not overwhelming. There are also some small pieces of beets in the lentil and swiss chard which add a nice sweetness to the dish. More swiss chard could have been nice as there is but a few small pieces.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very attentive. Great if taking
Very attentive. Great if taking in the ballet or a show.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed our meal & the recommended Greek wine very much. The service was great as well.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Restaurant came hightly recommended so we decided to celebrate a birthday here. All 5 of us really enjoyed our meal - octopus and saganaki appetizers were gobbled up. Mains, including scallops, lamb in phyllo and orzo with seafood were thoroughly devoured. We'll be back..
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have never ever liked Greek food!!! There is too much cheese and olives!!! But now I LOVE GREEK FOOD (Only in this restaurant). I was obliged to take a customer to this restaurant so I didn't express my opinion about greek food. I am really happy I didn't because this is my number 2 restaurant in Canada. Every time I will be in Toronto, I will eat here!!!!!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect birthday dinner
Had a very special dinner here. The restaurant was able to accommodate my infant son as well. Our waiter was most attentive and helpful. My party shared the appetizers of the grilled calamari, and Moroccan octopus as well crispy zucchini and our main courses were the fisher men's stew and lamb phyllo pastry. Everything was perfect.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good Work lunch
Great place to go for a lunch meeting. Restaurant was busy but the service is fast, lots of space on the tables for books and the ambiance was upscale but comfortable.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another great time...
I was our anniversary and I decided on Volos.
I have been here many times but not my husband.
They did not disappoint.
We both loved the food and the service was perfect.
They took very good care of us and made our night special.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Worth going too....
We really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. Anything that came to our table was very good to excellent. That said, the server was very bad. Tried to really push expensive wine, forgot a salad...forgot a dessert....snuck up on my friend and scared the sh-- out of him. Overall though, a really nice dinner and evening out.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great service
VOLOS has become a regular lunch location for me for the solid food and the excellent service. Very consistent.
