A word from Volver
Volvér means ‘to return,’ and the restaurant is a ‘return’ for Chef Jose Garces, one of the country’s leading chefs and restaurateurs. Chef Garces brings his more than 15 years of global culinary exploration to Volvér, ‘returning’ fondly to some of his favorite meals and re-imagining them with his signature flair.

The ever-evolving menus highlight seasonal ingredients prepared with modern techniques that capture and amplify their inherent flavors, all inspired by Chef Garces’ travels around the world. Regional specialties, including locally raised meat, poultry and seafood, and produce from Chef Garces’ own Luna Farm in nearby Bucks County, feature prominently on the inventive menu.

Bar Volvér is a comfortable setting for artful cocktails, wines and beers, complemented by Chef Garces’ exciting menu of globally influenced small plates including tartares, tartines, cheeses and charcuterie. All dishes are available a la carte. Reservations are not required.

Diner Reviews
  • "Yes, it was pricey ($580 for two including the beverage pairings, tax and gratuity). However, it also completely lived up to the billing. A flawless "performance" (as they call it) from before you get there (calling to check on dietary requests, etc.) to the front hostess, and then fantastic service every step of the way. They completely accommodated my wife's many menu changes for her likes and dislikes. I changed nothing in the 15-course, 3 1/2 hour meal. You really must do the sommelier's pairings (optional), which is part of the experience. The dining room seats around 30, with a wide open kitchen and employees match the patrons around 1 to 1 (or so it seems). You can't call yourself a foodie and not experience Volver."

  • "This is my new favorite restaurant in Phila! It's the 198th Phila restaurant I have visited and stands out from the top crowd. My evening was fun and full of outstanding experiences. Allow 3+ hours for the meal. Get the wine pairing; it's both spectacular and interesting (includes wine, beer and saki). The food was amazing! They served me things that I had only seen on TV and all the dishes worked. The tastes were strong and clean, and the food was beautiful. The service was friendly and casual. The evening reminded me of a visit to a three star Michelin restaurant in Paris some years ago."
