This is the fourth time our group of four has dined at Volos. As always, the food was delicious, the service was fantastic & the prices beyond reasonable.
Great place, great service, great food! A little pricy but well worth it.
Expensive but good! Went here for Valentine’s Day - been before, will come again!
The service was very slow. We ordered a prefix meal just to make sure that it would arrive faster as we had to make it to the opera . Mash potato was cold watery and tasteless.
Excellent food, great for sea-food lovers, good for pre-theatre dinner if attending the Opera.
Would have preferred a house wine in half litre as glass not enough and very expensive and bottle too much to drink before theatre as it's early and you might want to drink again at the theatre. Just an idea, but overall, a wonderful experience.
Overall a good evening. Seating was tight so no privacy. Had to wait for water refills several times. Since they used water bottles, why not leave a bottle on the table?
Excellent food with unique preparation and presentation.
Outstanding and Authentic
Food was good. Service was good...but we were seated in the very back corner of the restaurant even though it was quite empty. Shape we were not able to feel any ambiance.
Octopus appetizer was delicious!
Love the food, atmosphere and decor! Great service!
Very enjoyable and servers were very helpful. Will return again!
My husband and I liked Volos very much! It was our first time in the restaurant. Food was great! Service was spectacular! Special thanks to Tasso, their Manager - he made a big difference to our dinner. He actually opened a restaurant door for us - I was too weak to open it :) . It was like he opened his world to us and invited us to share it with him. It seems like Volos is the place of his pleasure and joy where he enjoys to give a lot of pleasure and joy to other people like us. God bless this place and Tasso!
The lamb shank is AMAZING (fall off the bone).
The olive oil.... wow. That bread with olive oil is fantastic.
The shrimp saganaki and grilled calamari were also amazing.
Best grilled calamari we have ever had!
The mini chocolate cake they brought us was delicious (and thank you for that!)
The regular saganaki and lamb kebab we're good, but not the stars of the meal (I would get more calamari or shrimp saganaki for the next time instead).
The server was lovely.
The food was just so delicious I am craving this all over again!
Didn’t enjoy much the lamb sausage appetizer - it was more like a mushy stew... but liked a lot sword fish kebab as main dish and yogurt for desert.
Came for Winterlicious 2018 lunch. Greek salad was not what I know as Greek salad. Not used to shredded greens, but more of a chunky salad with bigger pieces. The octopus salad was excellent. Octopus was very tender and the shrimp with it made a nice contrast. The Greek yoghurt was good, but expected nuts in it.
My partner and I had an absolutely superb experience at VOLOS for his birthday. Once our table was ready, we were promptly sat and tended to for water. Our waitress (forget the name, but had a great smile) was timely, courteous and quite witty. Within nearly 5 minutes of ordering saganaki as an appetizer, it was brought to the table and flamed up. I ended up having the Seared Swordfish for my main, while my partner had the Seafood Kritharoto- both were delicious, and portions were quite reasonable in my opinion. Afterwards, our waitress brought out an Ouzo Chocolatw Mousse for my partners birthday- on the house. All in all, we will definitely be visiting VOLOS during our next stay in Toronto. It is very evident that the staff and management pay close attention to the finer details- from service and plating, to ambience and selection- making it a really great evening for the two of us.
We had a wonderful winterlicious experience and will plan to visit again soon.
Went here for Winterlicious, the portions were decent size, waitress was nice and always checking up on us, quick on refilling our drinks.
Winterlicious! Delish menu!
Lamb rack is awesome!
This was the first time at Volos and I was most impressed. The service was professional, meaning discrete but attentive. The ambience was lovely - I especially appreciate the fact that we could talk in normal voices, and be heard by each other. And the food was exceptional. To my mind, this is all you can ask for in a restaurant.
We did the pre-show 3-course dinner for $36. Greek salad was very good, though not a 'wow', my beef shank was the same - would have liked some more veggies - and my partner's salmon was excellent. Finished with baclava which was great though we both agreed we'd had better. Wine seemed pricy, $15 for 6oz, but my companion said that's the going downtown rate these days. My server made a good suggestion for a Greek wine to go with the lamb- it was a match!
Service was very good though a little more attention was called for especially as it was a slow night.
Very happy with the round table for 5 people. Food was fresh and delicious. Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere allowing conversation without shouting. Server was friendly and unobtrusive.
The service was very friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was cozy and elegant, and the food was melt in your mouth awesome.
We waited a little longer for our food (most likely because of the large table that came in at the same time as us), but they brought us a saganaki on the house without us even saying anything.
Great spot if you're wanting a nice treat/meal out. Highly recommend!
Food was great, exotics was a bit oily and was filled with a lot of spinach and not enough meat, went for a birthday and didn’t even get recognized that there was a birthday. other than that was good
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
Founder-Run For Fun Cruise Tours Inc.
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.
