This was only our second time dining at Volare. Food was delicious and service was amazing! The light in the private dining room kept flickering which was a little annoying; but overall, it was a great experience.

Food and service is outstanding, the hardest decision is ordering with so many great selections, vegetables are fresh, kale salad is out of this world and the main entrees will feed several people.

It was one of the best meals I've ever had. Our server was great. The only complaint I have is where our table was. We sat in the middle of the room right out in the open. Hard to relax and talk.

Food and service were great as usual. It would be nice to have a few more moderately priced wines. The cheapest Pinot Noir was $54.00. 🙄. The music is a nice touch.

I love Volare, but after eating salmon on June 12, I got very ill overnight. I have been eating diet HMR food so it was the only food I had that was fresh. I won't order fish next time.

Volare is our new favorite Louisville restaurant. Holly, our waitress was attentive without being hovering. We ordered salads, capellini di Sorrento, and the lasagna. Everything was delicious. Will definitely return.

This was my time dining at Volare. The overall ambiance was great. My entree was decent due to the choice of sides. I ordered chicken Marsala and the sides were cabbage and beets. I ‘m sure plenty of people like the cabbage and beets; however, I do not eat cabbage or beets. When I asked the waitress, what other choices of vegetables do I have? She stated sautéed spinach. I don’t eat cooked spinach. I asked if they had potatoes or any other green vegetable. She was very accommodating and checked the kitchen for potatoes, which they had. I just wish the sides vegetables were more appetizing to one’s palate. My husband entree of veal Parmesan was really good. Overall the restaurant was nice

We love Volare. My food was even better than usual! Our issue was our server. While he was extremely competent, he continually referred to each of us as “miss.” If I had a dollar for every time, it would’ve paid the bill! Extremely annoying.

The food was great. They sat us in the back room of the restaurant and it felt like being in a dungeon. We did not like that. The server wasn’t as attentive as I would’ve expected from a high end restaurant. It took him a while to notice I had finished my drink before offering me another, then he forgot to get it for a while.

The environment was great, and the food was outstanding. We had a waiter that wasn’t the most on top of things, but I would argue that it was an outlier experience and was corrected after the manager stopped by our table during our service. Great choice for special occasions!

Volare never disappoints. It was my husbands birthday and chef made his favorite with requested side dishes, he does this anytime he can, and sent out a special dessert. When we have friends and family in from out of town we always take them to Volare where we know we will be happy with food and service. Would definitely recommend.

Our server, Garry was very personable and knowledgeable. I have a food allergy and when I asked about the items I wanted to order, he guided me through the menu to avoid getting sick. I ordered the sea bass and as a precaution, chef made a special sauce for me. I was there for my wife's birthday and she couldn't have been happier with the meal and the attentiveness of the server. Garry also remembered her wine, even though we don't dine there very often. We need go more often and if you are reading this, then you should go and ask for Garry!

Recently had reserved a table online for a party of 6 on the patio. Had a great meal and evening. Mannie's attention to our table was superb. There were quite a few "special tweaks" to our orders including specific instructions for our Woodford Double Oak Manhattans. They were sublime. GM Jonathan Tarullo is a master of the dining room.

We have always been very happy with our experiences at Volare. This is one of my favorite restaurants for special occasions as well as a quick dinner at the bar. From the valet parking to final desert this restaurant does it first class. On this night we were celebrating a birthday. they were very busy and were short staffed in the kitchen. It took a little longer than usual to get the food out but to their credit every dish was perfectly prepared. Chef Josh is a remarkable Chef Owner. I have seen other restaurants sacrifice quality for speed. Not here. Special thank you for the deserts Chef selected for us!
