I had reconnected with a girlfriend I dated some 35 years ago and told her to pick some place nice for our "first date" (I live rather far away so I'm not familiar with the area) and she suggested Volpe. What an excellent experience!

I found the restaurant to be elegant and inviting - loved the fact that there's plenty of room between tables. A pleasant change from being packed in at some "high end" restaurants in the city. We were greeted warmly by staff and escorted to our table - the farthest corner of the restaurant and ideally romantic. Our waiter (Steve, as I recall) was quite gracious and attentive. All aspects of the service were spot on.

The food was excellent. We shared the Caprese & Eggplant Siciliana appetizers. Both were perfect starters - flavorful, light and fresh. My girlfriend had the vegetable risotto (creamy and very tasty!) while I had one of the specials - a NY shell steak. The steak, covered in sauteed mushrooms, was tender and perfectly cooked - what you'd expect at any fine steakhouse. Dessert was rather traditional with cheesecake and tiramisu. Both excellent choices.

I would recommend Volpe highly! You don't go there to eat - you go there to dine. We both found it to be a 5 star experience and look forward to next visit - and thanks to Volpe for making our "first date" a memorable one.

We have visited Voloe about 5 times. Our last visit was a few days ago. The food was not as good as it used to be. The lobster risotto was subpar. I have the surf and turf and it was pedestrian. This place used to be excellent. I’d say it’s on par with banquet food like a few other reviews had mentioned. It’s on the expensive side. The service was top notch. The ambience was also good

We have been to this restaurant many times for prime rib night and have been satisfied with food and service in the past. However, this prime rib night my husband and cousin had to send their prime ribs back because it was very tough. Since another order would come from the same piece of meat, they had no other option but to order something different. Now in the mean time, my cousin's wife and I got our food, ate our food and a half hour later, our husbands' food arrives. Now we had to wait for them to eat, which made them uncomfortable and they didn't enjoy their meal. We are not happy. When my husband asked if we had to pay the additional cost for the substitutions, the waiter checked and we did have to pay the higher prices of the meals. To add insult to injury we were not even offered free coffee, free dessert, let alone have the bill adjusted. We feel this was poor business especially since we frequent this restaurant. The restaurant should have done something to get us to come back. Very disappoint customers!

We come here frequently for many reasons. The menu choices, presentation of food , attentive wait service, reasonable cost and the romantic ambiance make this a very special place to eat. On Valentine's Day price fix menu had unique cuisine and I had the best creamy-like dessert I have ever had. On Saturday evenings there is a piano player who can play anything you request and the music adds to the romantic atmosphere. If you don't want to have background music while you dine, you can sit in the enclosed dining area. Valet parking is convenient. Holiday decorations are superb. At times, some couples have gotten up to dance to the piano music.

It was just ok . Restaurant didn’t feel like a restaurant - it was more of room in a country club venue vibe (and I don’t mean they in an exclusive way). Food was mediocre - I got the surf and turf and asked for my steak to be cooked medium (it was well done). My husband’s grilled calamari app was rubbery but he did say his shrimp francese was decent. Spent time before hand perusing the menu & wine list in the hopes of it being a nice birthday dinner & it was disappointing.

My wife and I arranged with another professional medical couple for a 7:30 reservation on Saturday night, 2/3/18, at the Volpe restaurant. The bar area and restaurant are well designed and decorated with taste.
However, the meal was one of the worst we've ever had. The food portion of the meal for four people was $173. My wife and I shared two items on the special menu, snapper for two ($59) and for dessert, strawberries with cannoli custard ($14).
The snapper came out baked in a thick brown salt crust. The waiter removed the crust with difficulty, discarded it, and filleted the sides of the fish for two servings. The fish was extremely dry, and he struggled to keep each side together. On each oval white plate was a semblance of a fillet separated into multiple pieces as if a child had played with his food. Each plate was mostly empty, and the pieces of fish were filled with bones. The fish was overwhelmed by the salt and was otherwise tasteless, dry, and flaky. The waiter made up a sauce of oil, lemon, and rosemary to disguise the vile fish, but it was unsuccessful. My wife squeezed her lemons and mine onto the fish, still it was dry and inedible. He should have offered to take it back. We did not want to make a fuss, as we were out with another couple; otherwise, we would have paid for the salad appetizer and left.
The strawberries were equally disappointing. Served were three very small strawberries with custard placed on their tops. They were old and partly rotting. It just seems inappropriate for $4.67 each.
We could tell that the waiter was embarrassed. Unfortunately, management did not permit him the liberty of offering a better fare.
We will never return.

This was our second venture back to Volpe Ristorante during the recently concluded holiday season and we were once again among old friends who never fail to make our dining experience one to remember. Our thanks go out to Glen, Pierro, Moises and Kevin. They are professional, courteous and considerate. Our party of three thoroughly enjoyed our entrees, NY shell steak, lobster risotto and chicken marsala, and at the end of the evening, along with the accompaniment of the pianist, we were even regaled by a surprise, live, solo performance from Mr. Scotto himself! We can't wait to return for another engagement. Thank you!

Volpe's is a lovely, elegant restaurant. The service is friendly yet professional. We were a party of three and ordered a variety of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. The portions are generous (we all took home leftovers) and beautifully prepared.

The only thing I would change is to make reservations directly with the restaurant and not to use Open Table. OT indicated that there was only one reservation available at a time much earlier than I wanted. I took it thinking that between holiday parties and Friday dining, it was the best I could do. Imagine my surprise when we arrived and we were the only people in the dining room for over an hour! I suspect Volpe and other restaurants post very few time slots with OT. It was very disappointing and put a bit of a sour note in our experience.

My wife and I have been returning to Fox Hollow, in particular the Volpe Restaurant, for over 20 years and we particularly look forward to re-connecting with the staff that works there who we now consider our friends! Glen is a most attentive bartender who always makes the two of us feel special. The same goes for Pierro and Moises who always graciously greet us when we return for an anniversary event. The food was delicious. My wife had shrimp and I had the Scotto Special. They even gave us an anniversary keepsake cake to take home with us. We hope to return more often and can't say enought about the positive feelings we have.

We’ve recently begun dining at Volpe, and it’s a very pleasant experience. The food is delicious, the wine list impressive, and the seasonal cocktails are really interesting. Their best feature (after the food) is the top-notch service They provide, and we particularly enjoy having Pierro take care of us when we dine. About him there are only good things to say: friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient!

Had a perfect nite with a last minute reservation. Had a reservation for months at a sister Anthony Scotto restaurant, rare650, where I spent a half hour walking through the restaurant and finalizing my choice for table 72 for my son's surprise engagement dinner for 12. When I confirmed the ' day of' I was literally called a 'liar' by their manager , Paul, who said I could not have been promised a particular table. I was beyond insulted and upset and my husband cancelled our long planned party at Rare650 solely because of their arrogant manager Paul. I had previously heard about Volpe and had met their manager, Moises, who turned out to be super professional and so we switched this other Scotto restaurant . by the end of our party , he helped us forget the awful way I was spoken to by Paul. The point is that although both places have great food and wait staff I have never been spoken to like this Paul person spoke to me , telling me that he is the highest person in the chain that I could deal with and literally laughing at me when I gave him details of my conversation with the woman I booked with in person months earlier. Neither I nor my friends will ever go back to rare650. But volpe, that's another story.; one with a happy ending

I have been to Volpe many times over the years. Basically a neighborhood place with pretty good food and a very good atmosphere. Quiet relaxing place with better than average service. I started with the shrimp cocktail which is excellent here and had a veal chop as the main dish which was also top notch. Other main dishes aren't as good as what I had. I would also recommend the shrimp francese.

Underwhelmed with the food and service. Food was bland and server unattentive. The noise was overwhelming due to a large birthday party at a nearby table and then a very large group from a wedding was hanging out in the bar area. I had a headache by the time we left. We were celebrating our anniversary and there was nothing special done or even mentioned. What a waste of time and money.

We had a delicious dinner on Thursday "prime rib night". The baked clams were amazing, delicately seasoned and cooked perfectly; the soup was a beautifully fragrant, roasted chestnut cream, again seasoned to compliment the flavor of the chestnuts not over power them; the prime rib served in its own flavorful juices, with buttery mashed potatoes, and al dente green beans and carrots melted in your mouth. Sadly, we did not save room for dessert so we will have to wait until next time! 🙂
