    Self-proclaimed foodie here and the go to of the crew for restaurant recommendations. So what impressed me? The $5 happy hour flights. Well worth a stop after a hard days work. What did not impress me? The selection of wine on the flight menu and the food. With wine, you like to snack but all of the food (minus the truffle popcorn) was bland. A little salt goes a long way and may encourage more vino orders. J/s

    I met a few friends here for happy hour after hearing about their wine flights. I was last to the table and immediately greeted by our wonderful waitress, Kai. She explained the wine menu and made a few great suggestions. She was friendly and upbeat, smiling as she arrived to the table. We all ordered flights and were pleased with the selection and price. The atmosphere was very nice. Lit candles on the tables a few wine barrels here and there. There was music playing but hard to hear. We stayed for dinner. The wine was slightly overpriced but good. The food was great! My friend had the pork tacos and I had the grilled shrimp. The chocolate cake and the sorbets were awesome. The food and service were wonderful and we cant wait to go back.

    We requested to sit outside. We were greeted promptly by Steve w/ water in hand. When we asked him what was good he had great suggestions! I had the summer white sampler and all 3 wines were great! We also ordered salmon starter and penne pasta (like Mac and cheese). We ended up going inside to the bar to cool off and have another wine. My date had a dessert wine that was suggested by the bartender and was really good! We talked to other staff who were also friendly, knowledgeable and happy to chat. I think this is a great place alone or with friends. I'm excited to go back for happy hour and use the loyalty club!

    It was my friend and I's first time dining here tonight. We were immediately greeted and seated upon arrival. Our server was excellent. Their wine selection is quite extensive, and their food (starting from cheese and cured meats selection) was quite impressive. Everything tasted great, and we had a great dining experience tonight. I will highly recommend this place to my family and friends. Keep up the good work.

    Service was friendly, but a bit slow: slow to come by and take our orders (we were only a party of 5); food came out all at one time, but the items ordered to tide us over while other food was readied came out with the main dishes (defeats the purpose). Interesting wine selection trio experience, but nothing for the dessert-type wines - just by the glass, which came after my meal. I'd go again to give the place another shot, and hope I get some better service. The food was tasty which made it an okay visit over all.

    The irony with wine bars is that I don't drink! However, they tend to have very good food, which is why I like trying these kinds of restaurants. Vino Volo was excellent -- from the Marcona almond appetizer, to my personal pizza, to the affogato, it was all delicious. I'm sure I'll visit this Tysons Galleria location again very soon!

    Vino Volo is a nice, casual place to meet friends from work, have a conversation while waiting to do or go somewhere else. It is not a restaurant but a wine bar. As such, the menu was limited. It is not the place to go if you are hungry and the meals a bit pricey. The wait staff was friendly, courteous and prompt. I really enjoyed the wine sampling option. They grouped three similar wines and gave you a one-third glass of each to compare and contrast.

    My friend and I took advantage of the happy hour specials for dinner at the bar. More then enough food and a decent variety. Pass on dessert however. Sadly the chocolate cake was "ehh" and the pear tart was bland. I have been to the one in Bethesda and very happy to have one in Tysons! What a great place to meet up for happy hour, lunch or dinner.

    The food was delicious. Loved all of the wine flight options. Our only issue was the service, it was very awkward and lackluster. We couldn't tell if the host was also our server. He didn't really explain or suggest anything. A lot of the employees were staring at us or on their cell phones. Our server/host? rarely checked on us, he just stood at the host stand and stared at us. Several other employees brought our food and wine out and were much friendlier. We asked to split the check, which he said okay, but then didn't split it or even come back to the table for payment. We got fed up and had to get the bartender to cash us out. The food was amazing and i would return just for the wine and delicious eats.

    My husband and I loved the atmosphere, the wait staff was friendly and prompt. Our turkey sandwich was served on a wooden cutting board, which was really neat. The only problem was that at the end of the meal when the waiter came over to take our plates and finally check on us, I told him the sandwich was good but would have been great with something spread on the bread to make it not so dry. He realized the aioli had been left off the plate and/or the sandwich by mistake. I know things like that can happen, but if someone had checked on us a little sooner, the mistake could have been corrected. Truly, I would go back and try it again. I think it is surely worth a second chance.

    Maybe we should have just had some wine and a cheese plate because our pizza and pasta were awful! We had to send the pizza back because the sauce tasted like a combination of ketchup and BBQ sauce...inedible!! The gnocchi with mushrooms was dry and horrible too! We were charged $1.50 for about 5 small, thin pieces of Crostini that we munched on while we waited for our meal. I won't be back!!

    My husband and I went with another couple for dinner. While the concept of the wine flights was fun, the food was mediocre at best. Certainly overpriced for what you got. I would go back, but only for drinks and perhaps an appetizer….certainly not a meal.

    Not really a restaurant. It is heavily oriented toward wine. Food options are not well executed and look like they have been shipped from elsewhere and just assembled on premises. Do not buy bottled wine here. It is more expensive then in other vino volo restaurants. They have a fifteen dollar corking fee on their own bottles.

    This is not a "restaurant " per se, but a place for friends to gather for wine tastings and happy hours. They do have a small menu, but the food was not good and it was very slow in coming. The truffle pasta was dry and tasteless and they did not have arugula for the two entree salads ordered. We only found out they were out of this ingredient after a 1/2 hour wait and after being told it was the pasta that was holding things up. Do not plan on a full-fledged meal. Be prepared to eat snacks like caramel almonds, black olives and crostini to accompany your wine samples.

    Though the menu was a bit limited and the food was okay, the neat ambiance, cool wine selections and tasting offerings, and convenient location all made for a great experience. Plus, the restaurant part is pretty smal and super quiet which makes for easy conversations and a very relaxed environment. Will definately go back. Fun.

    Vino Volo is a good choice to mix up dinner options. If you're in the mood for a great glass of wine and exceptional service this is the place to go. If you want a big meal with a serious atmosphere this is not it. The charcuterie and small plates were great, the attempts at the larger "entrees" were not as well executed. Pricey, but a good change of pace.

    This place could be so much better, but there was absolutely no cohesion among the wait staff. We had at least 5 different waiters stop at our table to ask us the same questions. We couldn't tell who was in charge. We had to endure the very loud sorting of silverware by a staffer at the table across from us. When we wanted to order our meal, since there was no one waiter keeping track of us, it took a while to get someone to take our order. Same for when we needed our check. If the waitstaff was more professional and organized, the overall experience at Vino Volo might be worth a second visit.

    If you love wine, the sheer diversity of options at Vino Volo will knock you out. The variety of wine and champagne flights were terrific and the descriptions of your selections seem spot on. The small plates are delicious and we were especially pleased with the pork tacos and lamb meatballs. The roast chicken salad was terrific although the chicken was too dry for my taste. If you really want to live, try the warm, flour less torte for dessert. It brings meaning to the phrase, "to die for"

    I have been to a couple Vino Volos in the airports and knew this one was opening. I have been there once before as a "pre-dinner" stop and enjoyed it. Good small plates type options and tons of great wines, many by the glass. Service has always been good and this was no exception. Had a couple of flights and the Lamb Meatball sandwich (good but could use more sauce!) and the brussels sprouts. They were cooked to perfection. Not bitter with a bit of a glaze and still crisp. This is a great place for wine or a quick bite to eat.

    Vino Volo offers a unique experience as diners can choose to order a glass of wine or a flight (3 selections) for the cost of a glass. Loved our experience here and our server Greg. He told us about the various wine flights and gave us recommendations and stories about the wine and how the flights were chosen. The menu is simple, thoughtful and delicious, pairing extremely well with the wine. We had a cheese and cured meats platter to start and then Pork Tacos with the Christmas flight and Truffled Penne with the California flight. We'll definitely be back for more deliciousness.

    Great restaurant but the portions for the cheese and meat plate were very small. $23 for a cheese and meat plate that had 3 very small portions of cheese and 6 or so small pieces of bread. It wasn't an appropriate level of cheese and meat for the price, especially considering the cheeses weren't even imported.

    Our server was really bad: Mumbled when he talked to us; ignored empty plates; failed to follow up for more wine! Since I wasn't getting the server's attention, I went out to the retail store and selected a bottle with the help of the manager. When we couldn't get our server's attention away from clearing an empty table, I snagged the manager, tipped him for the bottle of wine we selected and told him of our server's problems. He seemed to understand. He gave us a 20% off card. We'll give Vino Volo another try.
