I wouldn't know bc there was a private event and they were unable to fulfill my reservations. There wasn't any communication during the reservation process that the restaurant was not available to during this date and time.

We had a wonderful dinner on a Saturday night at the this lovely restaurant in Roscoe Village. Three of shared entrees, all three getting the thumbs up from all three. Sat outside and it was just lovely. Straightforward, well executed cuisine.

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Volo, on their lovely back patio. The food and wine list were superb and the ambiance was just beautiful. This was our first visit and we will certainly be back!

I have lived in Roscoe Village for five years and for some reason have never made it to Volo until this week, which I'm sad that I've been missing out on this amazing place for so long! The staff is so incredibly friendly and helpful, the decor is beautiful and I absolutely LOVE the cabanas in the back patio, and the wine and food is DELICIOUS! Worth every penny. Truly great place to catch up with friends, go on a date, or just spend some quality time by yourself!

Great neighborhood restaurant. We love this place. Food is delicious and the wine is outstanding. The servers let us try wines before we decided to pick a particular wine and are great at making recommendations. Don't miss the mussels or the daily flatbreads. The oysters are also fantastic. Such a great place!!

The wait staff was shorthanded, and still did not received one our orders. We asked for the check and when we our order arrived cold. But, the waiter found out what and was great about and took if off our tab. I had never realized there was a back patio love it.

We have been there before and the service has been excellent!

Very nice space for a drink.
Would t do dinner again.
Veggie gratin was roasted veggies with parmesan breadcrumbs on top (average for a main)
Duck confit was not great either - not cooked through as it suppose to be.
Drinks were very nice.
Ambiance very nice.

Stephen Dunne and crew always deliver a great experience. Volo continues to be a special place tucked away in the Roscoe Village neighborhood.

I've been to Volo several times as I am a neighbor, but I am consistently disappointed by the service. Our server disappeared for :30 minutes as we were finishing our drinks and meal, leaving us thirsty and itching to leave!

Disappointing. Such a cute location and vibe - darling back room, but food was not great and our server, though lovely, was too busy and so we waited what we felt was a long tome between visits.

This was our second time at Volo. The first time (in September 2018) was great, so we stopped in for dinner again. Service was top notch!

We started with charcuterie and a cheese plate, along with flights of Pinot Noir. After choosing our favorite Pinot and ordering a bottle, we moved on to dinner. My entree was the duck confit with lentils and it was everything I had hoped for.

This restaurant has great atmosphere, great wines, great food and wonderful service.
I’m sure we’ll be back, next time we visit the Windy City.

The food was outstanding, I highly recommend the Duck Confit.
Bradley, our server, was very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. He was also very friendly.
A great little Chicago spot!

Chef Stephen Dunn has been satisfying customers for over 15 year with his use of seasonal ingredients and creative menu offerings. The endive arugula salad was well balanced and pork belly skewers were cooked to perfection. The Arctic char with bok choy and jasmine rice was a nice Asian touch to the menu. I highly recommend Volo!

Had the valentines menu and the lamb chops were AMAZING. I never order lamb, but it was recommended by our waitress (who was awesome) and I'm so glad I did. I wish they were on the normal menu. I didn't love the lobster bisque as much, but that was the only dish I wasn't a fan of. Others at the table got the black and blue (one or our favorites) and the duck confit, which seems to change a lot each time we come back, but is always delicious.

The wine was good, but that’s about where my excitement for this place ended. The service was subpar and the food was decent but incredibly overpriced. Come here only for drinks and don’t bother with anything else.

This is a great neighborhood gem. We sat at the bar and Dano took great care of us! The food was great and the service was top notch. My only complaint is that the open kitchen does lead to you leaving with hair and clothes smelling like a kitchen. But if that's the worst thing, its really not a big deal.

Awesome restaurant, perfect for a date night or hanging out with a group of friends. The place gets a little noisy so if you’re looking for a quiet, low-light ambience spot this isn’t the spot. But overall a great option, huge wine selections, and tasty small plates perfect for sharing.

Food is amazing!!! We loved how our host knew so much about wine. There are so many options that it was hard to choose. Atmosphere is so cool. Remember to have a sweater or wrap for back patio. It is a little chilly when the room first opens but warmed up nicely.

As usual, we loved our visit to Volo; the selection of wines is top-notch (which is sorely lacking in most nearby neighborhoods), prices are fair, and service is friendly and prompt. Cheese options were also excellent and made for the perfect after-dinner snack over wine with friends.
