My wife Kim and I were in Toronto for her Xmas present of seeing Grease and staying at the Sheraton for the weekend...Her dietary habits have changed in the last few months and I was looking for more of a "seafood" style restaurant and we've never tried a Greek place before so gave Volos a shot.

Was not disappointed in the least! Great location right across the street from the hotel and when it was minus 30 out, that was a bonus for a short walk...Met at the door immediately and had an offer to take our coats which was nice...Checked in for 6pm and had a nice table overlooking the street...Cozy atmosphere and a good vibe...Our server was Katie and she was beyond fantastic...After 5 mins felt like we knew her for years...She talked us into the "Pre Dinner Special" which was awesome value at $36 pp and included App, Main, and dessert...Kim had the soup, Salmon, and Mousse...I had the braised meatballs, Lamb Shank, and Baclava....Each course timed perfectly; Katie also got me a couple of tasters for some Greek wine and I wound up getting a nice 9 oz glass of Greek red which went perfectly with dinner.

Manager came by to see how everything was which was nice as well...We will def be back as I'm going to take Kim's mom and dad here as I think they would love it.

Well done folks and keep it up

Loved the prefix menu option as we were dining before a theatre show. Very respectful of our time and prompt in service. Only issue would be the cold. Seated near the front of the restaurant and every time someone came in - we had to put our coats on! Need a barrier between front reception and restaurant. Service great. Food good. Wine options plenty. Portions appropriate.

For New Year's Eve, my husband and I along with another couple, enjoy spending the night downtown, taking in a show and booking a restaurant for dinner.
We made reservations at Volos and asked for a table where we could enjoy conversation along with our meal.
We were delighted that the staff at Volos heeded our request and led us to a section of the restaurant that had a handful of tables. We were able to spend almost three hours enjoying food, drink and conversation easily!

As for the food - absolutely delectable! From grilled calamari to swordfish to lamb shank to a succulent lobster and shrimp dish - our appetizers and meals were beautifully prepared and presented.

Our server David was the perfect combination of friendly, helpful and attentive.

Altogether, a lovely dining experience and one I'd highly recommend!

The food here is beyond good! I had the scallops and my boyfriend had the short ribs, we also had the dolmades to start. Everything was amazing! I don’t understand why people are complaining about the portion sizes, go to any fine dining restaurant or high end in general and half the time they are even smaller. Our stomachs were full by the end soooo no complaints! Also service was really amazing aswell.

I've been to this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. The service is always friendly and usually efficient. The food is always excellent - although I have to force myself at times to not order the amazing exohico, just so I can try other things on the menu. I really enjoy the selection of greek wines on the menu.

Volos was a great experience. Went for a date, and had an amazing waiter! The wine was fantastic, and so was the appetizer - which was a flamed cheese dish (sorry i don't remember the name!). The entrees were decent, and overall gave us a great time to spend time together. I do recommend being aware that this is easily a $100 bill for two people, not including tax or tip.

This was my third time at the restaurant. Each time I went it was a great experience, Im not sure what her name is but the server with the long red hair was absolutely amazing. I've had her twice and she made amazing recommendations for what to eat and her attention to the table was not overbearing but just right! This time we had a short blonde girl who was just as pleasant. Best Saganaki I've had, best lamb shank also. Just amazing all around in every way, definitely one of the best restaurants in toronto and I spend $25-30k/year on outside dining.

Went there with my girlfriend for her birthday. We are both of Greek descent so expectations are HIGH. It was loud - but that is because we were sitting beside a large group - just something I don't like. Service was as expected - nothing terrible to complain about. Most importantly - the food - bottom line at the price you are paying I expect more authenticity and home made dishes - not dishes supplemented with pre-packaged ingredients. If I were going to a good italian restaurant I would expect the dough for the pizza or the pasta to be made in house not picked up down aisle X at the grocery store. But then again I have high expectations. If you are naive and don't know what to expect it is decent.

The food and service was wonderful. We were there before the ballet and we found the ambiance very romantic. The food was also quite delicious. The only caveat was that they made a mistake and I received a gluten item that I didn’t realize until after taking a bite. If someone is allergic to things, I would suggest making sure to clearly state and ask once the meal arrives, but they made up for it with complimentary appetizers. I suffered mild reaction to the gluten but my husband and I found the rest of the meal quite appetizing. We will go back, this time I will make extra sure before taking a bite. The food is delicious.

This was our first time at Volos and we would definitely come again. We had an early seating for dinner before a show and it was fantastic. The food was authentic and the wine was amazing. We’ve never had wine from Greece before and we both loved it. I would definitely recommend coming here for dinner on date, before a show or with the family.

My server at both times was Tim and he did a great job taking care of my clients and making sure they were well looked after. I would definitely recommend VOLOS to friends and clients in the future and will continue to go!

Was in Toronto for a business trip and Volos was close to my hotel and received good reviews. Glad we decided to try it – what a wonderful dining experience! Our waiter was knowledgeable and very personable. The food was excellent. I had the fisherman’s stew and also shared the grilled octopus appetizer. Both were very flavorful. The ouzo chocolate mousse was amazing (and I am not a big dessert eater). Will definitely go back the next time I’m in Toronto.

The service and food were great absolutely no complaints there, however the menu prices found online (on your website) does not reflect the menu prices of the restaurant once you're there. This was very confusing for myself and all my guest once we arrived at the restaurant, perhaps this is something to change/update to reflect the correct price.

Dinner at Volos ranks as a highlight of my recent trip to Toronto and a highlight of my dining experiences in general. The setting is quietly elegant, and, for a place that clearly attracts lots of people and lots of different kinds of people, reasonably quiet; a welcome relief from the usual noise associated with newer high-end eateries. The menu was varied and interesting, but let me zero in on the to-die-for chocolate mousse I had for dessert. I've never had better! The waiter had encouraged the selection and, even with his rave review, it exceeded my wildest dreams. A real find!

The food and service were top notch. The waiter provided an excellent wine pairing recommendation for each of us which enhanced the meal in a very complimentary manner. I had read that the service was slow and indifferent but our experience was 100% the opposite. Food was well prepared. The wait staff was polite and responsive. The meal was served in very short order and there was no rush to leave. All in all I would highly recommend VOLOS
