Volt Ratings and Reviews
We had scheduled a business meeting over the lunch hour for a group of 8. The manager (Nick? Mike? don't recall) was very attentive to our needs and made sure we had a space. The server was very efficient, and quick on the drink refills. She even split checks for us, which was a huge time-saver for those who had to run to another meeting immediately following. The noise level was a little high for conducting business, but that's to be expected. We had a great experience overall.
First, don't make a reservation on open table. They don't use it. You probably don't even need one. We went on a Saturday night and it wasn't busy. It was nice for our group. Most of the food we got was pretty good. The "flash fried" popcorn shrimp was over cooked. Their menu didn't have anything special. It was mostly burgers and sandwiches. Their drinks were delicious. Volt wouldn't be my first choice for a restaurant in Detroit.
They do not take reservations and there isn't even anyone to check in with to show you to a table. This hotel restaurant merely has tables set up and it's a free for all to grab a table. This was on New Year's day evening when nearly every other restaurant in the Marriot Hotel in Detroit and in most parts of Detroit were closed. 100,000 people were in town for the NHL classic and this bankrupt city doesn't have the good sense to capitalize on that ... but I digress. Please remove Volt from open table.
It was a bit too busy for my liking being New Years Eve but despite the over crowded environment the waitress found us a table and was able to attend to us more than I would have thought with the number of customers. Volt has a great view of Windsor and the Detroit River, a good menu, and a bar staff who know how to mix a good bloody cesar. A great place overall.
We booked this restaurant for a group for New Years Eve a few days before the event. On the day of we called the restaurant directly to see if we could add one more to our party. We were told they did not have a reservation for us nor had they been taking any reservations for several days. With no other option, we tried to go to the restaurant that night as planned and it was nothing more than a first come first serve lounge with not so much as a hostess stand. It was a nightmare and we ended up going elsewhere.
I really enjoyed my dining experience here. The only problem I had was because Open Table took a reservation, and the bar doesn't even take them. Seating is on a walk in basis. The service was fantastic, ambiance and decor was great! My husband's steak was overcooked, but my food was delicious. I had the salmon and sweet potato mash with a ceaser salad. The salad was delicious! I am certainly going back!
I was really surprised by this "hotel lobby bar" and the pleasant environment and food selection. It is one one the nicest hotel bars I've been to, and the food was excellent. It was a busy day, so service was just a bit slow, but the place was buzzing and very fun for a Saturday afternoon.
