Love Volare! Been coming here for years now. Best restaurant in the area. Great service, incredible good, nice ambiance, and a chef owner who is very personable. I highly recommend!

Excellent food. Takes a really really long time to get drinks and food on a Saturday night. Thank God we were not in a hurry.

We were in the patio area that is enclosed. It was slightly noisy because of the heaters. The heaters also had the temperature very uncomfortable at times. Otherwise a great experience.

Bourbon selection could be better.

One of the best steaks I’ve ever had. And the chocolate gelato with salt is a great finisher

Great food! Service is usually good. A bit pricy but usually worth it. Kids love the pasta!

Volare lacked ambiance but the service was awesome. We had the sausage and peppers appetizer which was awesome, however our entrees were average. The entree felt like it was missing a pasta side dish. I had the chicken piccata which had a wonderful sauce with capers and artichokes but was over-cooked and quite tough. My husbad love the chicken parmigian.

The food was superb. My only slight complaint is it seemed to take longer than usual to bring the food out.

Normally a great restaurant. On this particular visit, Volare was off its game. We were placed in the sidewalk dining area (01/20/18) which was enclosed and had heaters. We were placed directly under one of the heaters, which felt like a broiler. Our waitress explained there was limited control of the heater. Since we we away from the main dining room, service seemed unusually slow - out of sight is out of mind. Our waitress, whom we had before and was excellent that visit, was having an off night - apologized constantly - explained a shortage of Cooks in the kitchen - forgot the normal table set-ups (water, bread, drink refills, etc). The food was the saving grace. Yet, the Fileto ordered as medium, ran from medium well to medium to medium rare. Still, it was tender and delicious.

We went out for a late dinner after arriving back in town from a trip. It had been a few years since we were at this restaurant. We always had a good experience but it's a half hour from the house. We made a reservations on OT, got there and were seated right away. Our server, Klotilda (I thought it was Claudia and kept calling her that) got us drinks in a jiffy. I asked her how the pour was and she said pretty good but I ordered a double bourbon anyway. It came out in a tall glass - it looked like a glass of soda. We ordered appetizers which were outstanding and by the time they were done, the salads came and then the entree. Perfect timing on everything. All the food was delicious - my son had the 18 oz ribeye; it was like 2" thick. I realized I had underestimated how good this restaurant is and will start going more regularly. We were too full to eat dessert.

Great food. Disappointed in the limited New Years menu and unwillingness to make a subsution. This was our third news years there and first year slightly disappointed.

Still will be back.

The food was good but overpriced. Do not sit on the porch in the cold season. The overhead heaters burned our necks and ears. They finally turned them off after two requests only to turn them back on 5 minutes later. Our whole meal felt rushed by the server and busboy. Left with a splitting headache. Ruined our new years eve!

This is one of our go-to places for birthdays, get-togethers with friends and date nights.

We have been to Volare in the past for New Year's Eve but we will not be returning next year. When the restaurant called to confirm our reservation, I was told there was going to be a limited menu. Not only was the menu extremely limited but many prices were dramatically increased. My father-in-law loves fish and the only fish on the menu was Chilean Bass for $56, therefore he did not order it because of the inflated price. There was no children's menu but they did accommodate us.

We love their pizzas but unfortunately that were none on the menu. The menu had a very limited number of salads. My husband's favorite is the NYC (chopped salad) but that was not on the menu.

I specifically booked an early reservation so that we would not be with the crowds and be rushed. Unfortunately, wait people were asking us if they could remove our dishes before we were done. One after another.

I understand that restaurants often have limited menus on New Years' Eve but Volare's was too limited. It is important for restaurants to retain the loyalty of regular customers such as us whether or not it is a holiday. Volare failed at this.
