    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    We got married at Fox Hollow and wanted to come back to the place we got married to celebrate our one year anniversary. We clearly noted this on our reservation, and our anniversary wasn't even acknowledged. No piece of cake, not even a "Happy Anniversary". I expected more from a place that we spent THOUSANDS of dollars on only a year ago. That being said, the food was ok. I do not feel that it was worth the prices. We were seated right next to the piano and I felt my husband and I had to yell to each other over dinner. Overall, not the experience I had hoped for.

    Volpe is unusual because it is tucked in among the bldgs. of The Fox Hollow Inn. We were surprised by the excellent service considering some of the other reviews. We shared a delicious 4 cheese salad which was different and enjoyable. Our dinners were a generous portion of salmon & veal Milanese....all delicious with sides included. I did not rate excellent because bread was served a few slices at a time, and we had to ask for more. Restaurant became crowded toward 7:30pm but before that there were many tables available....my pet peeve is the usual restaurant practice of seating diners "piled up" at tables next to each other. Here it was the tables against the wall for some reason.

    not bad, food was pretty good. Service was slow, not attentive at all. My daughter wanted pasta with meat sauce and was told they didn't have it and couldn't make it. She ordered chicken fingers with fries, 3 strips with fries was 23 dollars, pretty shocking.

    This restaurant has it all. It has elegant decor, great food, great service and on Saturdays it has a fantastic piano player. My wife and I had the mussel appetizer and it was out of this world. As well as their fresh fish. We are never disappointed with any choice that we made, except I wasn't happy with the puny martini, not good at all. But I still recommend it to all.

    We went here for my birthday on a Saturday night. the place was empty other than 2 tables. we knew it had been redone recently and looked forward to the updated atmosphere and cuisine based on what we saw on the website. The food was excellent but the menu was limited. Unfortunately the atmosphere was very drab and it seemed as though they only took partial effort to update the decor. There was a live piano player which added a bit to the ambiance. Although the food was good I would not rush back because I did not feel this was a place that I would like to dine again. We are big fans of the Scotto restaurant group and enjoy their other establishments much more.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    Volpe has good food but brands itself as an Italian restaurant, which it is not...there are only a few pasta or traditional Italian dishes on the menu which is actually eclectic. The Scotto Brothers need to rethink how they want to promote and market this restaurant. Aside from this, Volpe is a good choice for an evening of fine dining.

    This is a great place and the only downside was the noise level, but this was coming mainly from one table in the corner. The 60ish men and women seem to be having the time of their lives and they weren't at all concerned about how their screeching laughter and non-stop loud-talking was affecting other diners, as well as the poor piano player. Horror-movie shrieking doesn't go well with romantic music. These are the same rude people who scream into cellphones on the train. Hopefully, next time will be better.

    This restaurant was always our place for special occasions. As the Rose Hunt Room we were never disappointed in any part of our experience. On our second visit to it as Volpe I find the new menu limited and not very interesting. I miss many of our old favorites. We were seated in the bar area because of a private party, not terrible, except for the noise level was high and it's too dark to read the menu!! The service is, as always, outstanding. We always request Pierro as our waiter and he is a true professional. He remembers our favorite drinks and appetizers and is the best asset they have. We will probably return - mostly for the service and the experience but I'm unhappy that the food and atmosphere has become mediocre.

    Had dinner on Saturday, July 26th with my husband. We had such a great meal. We were promptly greeted by the host who was as nice as could be. We were shown our table which was a great location overlooking one of the garden areas that served as the cocktail hour for weddings, one of which was going on as we dined. Our server, Steve S. was friendly and knowledgeable. The attention to detail at this well appointed restaurant is nothing short of amazing. From the decor to the ambiance to the food, all were top notch. We were looked in on by our host a few times which was a nice touch, but NOT overbearing. After reading the other "lukewarm" reviews, I have to wonder if the "haters" actually dined at this restaurant. Will definitely be back!

  • Good Lobster, OK Night
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/9/2014
    Visited Volpe for Lobster Night, and felt a bit like 2nd class citizens. Soup was served promptly, but several diners seated after us were served during the 20 minutes before our salad course was served--only after we asked a server to check on it. The Caesar was oppressively salty and unevenly seasoned. Some leaves were extremely over-salted and others unseasoned. I did not finish it. The lobsters were as expected. An improvement would be to crack the shells in the kitchen to simplify things for the diner. My dinner partner really struggled to crack the shell, which detracted from the experience. We sat next to the live piano music, which was good but pushed up the overall noise level, as did sing-alongs for a b'day and anniversary.

    The French onion soup was possibly the best I've ever had so expectations were high at the beginning of the meal. But then the Ceasar salad was one of the worst I've had. It had no flavor other than peccorino romano, not even shaved parmesean. I had a steamed lobster next and it was over-steamed and half of it was too rubbery to enjoy. I ordered tiramisu to go (I was staying at the Inn at Fox Hollow on the same property) and it was terribly dry just an hour later. The service, soup, and atmosphere were outstanding but given the multitude of fine dining options on Long Island, I doubt I will be back. Though I will certainly stay at the Inn at Fox Hollow every chance I get.

    Very cold inside - the A/C was cranking when it was only 50 degrees outside. There was a photo-shoot for a newspaper during dinner which was distracting. The entree food (pasta dishes) was average for the price. The appetizer was great.

    When you are going to eat at a restaurant that is owned by the Scotto Brothers you expect that the pasta would be amazing, unfortunately our food was average at best. We were all looking forward to eating at this restaurant but we're so disappointed. The restaurant was beautiful and the service was great but the food didn't match the ambiance.

    I was very disappointed in this restaurant. I thought it was a renovated room in Fox Hollow, but it was the same room I had been in years ago for a wedding. My wine glass was not only dirty it had drops of water on it as if it were just rinsed prior to pouring. I had the Bronzino which was fine. However, the rest of the meal was just fair. It's the same food one gets in a catering venue which Fox Hollow is. The lava cake was terrible. It was not lava cake. It was a small round cake with a hole in it and they poured warm chocolate sauce onto it. Sorry, but I won't be returning

    The restaurant is located in the Fox Hollow catering hall. It was a beautiful entrance way into the building. The restaurant was spacious and had 2 rooms for seating. We sat in the room with a fireplace and windows overlooking the gardens. Our party enjoyed restaurant week's special menu. All of our meals were delicious which included an appetizer, entree, and dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and had a relaxing evening dining. The waiter was excellent and we never felt rushed. We would return for a special occasion.

    Had a very enjoyable evening at Volpe. We were a group of 5 and were seated in the main dining room, which was empty, surprisingly. Our server was nice and took our drink order. We ordered from the restaurant week menu, which had quite a few choices. My only complaint was the dessert selection. It was either the blood orange mascarpone cheese "cake" or vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Other than that, we weren't rushed and had an adequate amount of time to enjoy our evening.

    Had dinner at Volpe on tuesday 4/22. They advertise Tuesday as "wine down tuesdays - 50% off selected bottles of wine. We asked the waiter what wines were 50% off. He didn't know. Came back to the table a with a bottle of Red wine and siad this is 50%off. We asked about others, he said this is the only one, we asked to taste it and no one liked it. The waiter said "yeah I have been told it is acidy" however this is the only choice, really I would not consider one bottle of wine "Selected bottles". Food was good, except for the veal chop which was ordered medium rare and came out, dry and tough. Overall we had a good dinner but not great and the bill was $300.00 which did include one $25.00 bottle of wine.

    The location was luxurious, the food was excellent, but what really impressed us was the service. From the concierge to our waiter, we were treated like V.I.P.s. Our reservation was for the piano room, but as I mentioned that this was a special occasion, we were offered a more quiet and romantic location where would could still hear the music, but have more privacy. Lovely decor and great view from the window.
