    This was my first and most likely last time going to Volare, which is a shame because I really wanted to like it. I came to celebrate my birthday with 3 friends. We asked our waitress to take a picture of us whenever she had time. We walked to the wine wall when a worker started frantically fanning her hands at us to shoo us away saying “no no no, wrong way go around, this isn’t an exit, MOVE.” I told her we were just taking a quick picture, gesturing to our waitress with my phone. “Whatever..” she said shaking her head. Our waitress took the picture which took all of 30 seconds, as I walked back to my seat the same woman who shooed us away said to her colleague “god they’re in the way.. not like we are trying to work here or anything.” Making sure to say it loud enough for me to hear. I couldn’t believe what I heard, but when I looked back she was shooting me a dirty look for good measure. Having worked in the restaurant business for years, I would be mortified if one of my employees treated a guest like that. It ruined the night.

    Volare is our favorite spot to go to for a special occasion or just a special dinner. From the moment you pull up and the valet takes your car, you are treated like royalty. Everyone is warm and gracious! If you want time to catch up over a drink, they leave you alone. If you’re hungry, let’s order! Saturday night we all had the specials. Two of us had the sea bass and two of us had the flounder. Both were yummy! We also all had the special chopped salad complete with homegrown lettuces. It was fabulous! Thanks to the whole staff for giving us yet another wonderful experience! See you again soon!

    Everything was absolutely fantastic. Appetizers were excellent we had the muscles and fried green tomatoes. Main courses chicken parm was out of this world and my husband had the veal melt in your mouth yum. Will definitely go back. I will avoid sitting next to a large crowd next time. Only disappointment is being seated next to several large parties.

    We went for our wedding anniversary & it was also our first time dining here. We sat outside which at first we didn’t think we’d like but it was perfect! Our waitress Carrie M was phenomenal! She was so personable and kind and knowledgeable on the menu items. The service overall was wonderful. We enjoyed every single item we got. The drinks were strong and tasty. The valet was great as well. I can’t wait to go back!

    Our waiter Chad was great. My only negative comment is that we were annoyed by the noise level coming from the body shop across the street as we were sitting on the patio. Adjusting our time to 5 o’clock or later would have avoided that.
