The food was amazing and the outdoor seating was beautiful. Will definitely dine here again!
Everything was so delicious! Great service too.
We had an awesome time at La Volpe. The service was excellent, and the food was incredible. The host was very nice, even when we wanted to move tables (no reason other than wanting to sit in a booth). Our server was very knowledgeable and told us all about the parts of the menu. We got two appetizers (the calamari are awesome), a cheese board, focaccia, and split an entree pasta. And we both got a cocktail. Our drinks and food were all delicious, and we liked the variety of options. The only negative I would list is that the food took a while to come out (we were seated around 7:40pm and did not receive our entree until 9:00pm), and if we did not happen to have tickets to something that started at 10pm, we could have stayed all night! Overall, excellent food, vibe, and service; will be back again for an indulgent dinner again!
Everything was fresh and delicious! Ordered many different things and ended up with plenty of leftovers for following day!
Dinner was amazing! I have dietary restrictions of no gluten, dairy, and soy. The chef was great and gave me options of what I could have. We started with the salami board and the cheese board that included one goat cheese and one sheep cheese along with two cow dairy cheeses. They were great. I had the lamb and the sweet potato hash and the food was just amazing! Those lamb chops were perfect. Great service, great ambience, great cocktails too. We will be back!
Great vibe. Fantastic service from Brandon. Food was great and not the SOS. All in all really good experience. Was a little pricey but good.
We sat outside on the covered and enclosed patio. The lighting was soft but plenty to eat by. They had soft jazz playing. However you couldn’t hear it due to the steakhouse bar next door. They made the noise level what I picked.
The service was perfect. They were not busy while we were there so our server was very attentive.
We started with drinks and an appetizer. The fried calamari was extraordinary! They served it with a tomato based dip. Delicious! We also had for our main meal, Duck confit with pasta. Oh my heavens it was spectacular! Tenderer and juicy. We also ordered the beef tenderloin with potatoes. It would have been better medium rare as suggested but my finance likes his dead dead. :) But it was still amazing.
Bathrooms were very clean and well maintained as was the patio and main dining area. Perfect for dates, family gatherings, business or whatever.
We will defiantly be back and add this to our date night list
Appetizers were great. Main courses were cold, and way too salty. Sent back to reheat. Came back out same temp and not good. Great ambiance.
All our food and drinks were delicious. Server was very attentive and helpful. Looking forward to get back soon
The food took too long to come. Quality wise dishes are ambitious but not great, salad had way too much dressing and pasta dishes way too much cream. Service was good, but overall experience was not great.
My husband and I went for his birthday. The meatballs were delicious, and so were our main courses. I had the short ribs over a sweet potato mix, and my husband had the chicken linguine dish. Both were terrific and the dessert was also, a sweet potato based dessert with fried jelly doughnut balls covered with powdered sugar. Yum!
Although this was my second visit, my wife and I decided we wanted to enjoy a fabulous evening celebrating our anniversary with a great meal. It we couldn’t pick a better place than La Volpe.
We absolutely love the food and the service was awesome. We thank you and we will be back.
Amazing place, can’t say enough great things about their food and service.
Bing a terrific bartender and host...enjoyable dinner at the bar. Terrific lamb and veal meatballs w fresh pulled mozzarella
Food was good, but the waitress was not very helpful. My dining partner asked for recommendations and she told her it was all written on the menu. Parking is awful. I will not return unless there is valet parking available.
Overall the restaurant was good. We got seated late after waiting for over 15 min. The food came out almost 45 min to an hour. The food was very good though.
Love LaVolpe. Have had better and friendlier service than last night, but always a great time. Love the food. Chef made gluten free vegan pasta dish to share that another server had recommended another time. Absolutely love the atmosphere. A hidden gem in downtown.
Really enjoyed our evening at La Volpe. Menu was well rounded, service was great. We hadn’t seen our friends in a long time and our evening was leisurely-no pressure to eat and rush out. The only complaint I have is while the food was delicious-it was a little cold. I ordered the filet. My husband had the lamp chops. Our guests had the pork ragu and the swordfish-they did not comment of the food temperature. Regardless-we will go back!
The venison sauce in both our dishes was not good- what would have been a lovely ravioli was too salty, too meaty, not delicate- a simple olive oil would have been better.
Amazing food and service.
My parents came into town to treat me for my birthday dinner and I found this place. The restaurant is beautiful and the upstairs space looks nice, but everything else was just an incredibly unpleasant experience. Our food was not warm when it finally arrived and all the meat (short rib & lobster in particular) was totally overcooked and tough. When I ordered the mushroom pappardelle the server said it was “basic” and to be honest seemed disinterested in our table entirely—likely a bad night and also her first service gig. The dessert was also luke warm and the sauce was overpowering. All in all for a $400 meal we all were extremely non-plussed and honestly I was embarrassed for recommending the place. I was shocked to find out they have been open 1.5 years already and I’ve never heard of them....makes sense after no one else being there on a Thursday night and having the experience we did.
This place has the best risotto I’ve had in Austin, I would definitely go back for that and the mushroom parpadelle.
Our server, Brandon, was extraordinary. The food was unique and prepared perfectly. One of the best dining experiences we’ve had.
Amazing dinner. The food, ambiance and service was all incredible. Perfect way to celebrate New Years Eve!
We came in for New Year’s Eve. We were greeted at the table with complimentary Prosecco. Our waiter was super attentive and helpful. We were seated outside, but the heaters were ample and effective. We absolutely loved all we ate, but really enjoyed the swordfish and the meatballs.
La Volpe was a delight. Our server made us feel very special and the food was masterful.
So delicious!!! We were served the wrong course but it didn’t matter because it was delicious! Nice staff, cozy atmosphere
Amazing food, good atmosphere.
Food was quite good although the arugula salad that was promised with my meal turned out to be replaced with a Kale salad without ever asking if that would be ok
Moms birthday. They were so helpful in coordinating the surprise for her. The food was fantastic👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻. We ordered and did family style sharing. Worked perfectly.
Favorites of the night: Shrimp & crab risotto and the Brussel sprouts
What a lovely find! Small charming restaurant right next to Cedar Door, with a wonderful knowledgeable server, great food, and excellent wine! We split an appetizer and each had a small plate - the scallops and gnocchi were both excellent and generous! The restaurant also has a lovely open air area we hope to try out next time.
Poor service. Server did not care.
Good ordinary. Not a special dinner.
Will not go again.
La Volpe was outstanding. I am a real foodie and everything was freshly made, plated beautiful and excellent service from our waitress. It was a Wed. and we got half priced bottles of wine and got a delicious appetizer during Happy Hour. It is a beautiful place and they had live jazz upstairs. I live in San Antonio but I will be back.
Great food with a great setting for a quiet elegant meal
We were early to dinner and decided to order from the Happy Hour Menu. It offered many dishes. We ordered the cauliflower, the mushroom pasta, the bread, calamari, the meatballs and the panna cotta. Overall we found the food to be heavy with sauces - all overdone. The cauliflower was saturated in a rich cheese sauce, the mushroom sauce was heavy in oils, the calamari was fried but not crisp, we liked the meatballs. The panna cotta was heavy with fried rosemary, basil, hard peaches and other seasonings. The main portions would easily serve 4 people - fortunately we were sitting at a 4 table or the large bowls would not have fit on the table. We were expecting happy hour sizes that usually serves 2 people. Overall the food was heavy - not fresh and light like people like. These would have been popular 20 years ago. A year ago when we had happy hour there we were very impressed with the food. Overall we were disappointed, great location, attractive and good service - the food is not up our likes.
If you are offered the pigs head ravioli do not hesitate! It took ravioli to a whole new place.
Liked it! Will be back!
Great wine list and food was superb! Recommend scallop small plate, grilled romaine salad mushroom pappardelle entre and roasted cauliflower side. 3 women shared this were full but not too stuffed! They also have a beautiful outdoor (mostly covered) space for great weather days!!
Friendly alert service, flavor rich food good price.
