Best Gem in Oakland County
Food was outstanding as always. Had the Tomahawk steak and it was unreal, Volares zip sauce is the best that I have ever had, wish that they would bottle it and sell it at retail. We also had the bone in filet and it was outstanding as well. This is truly one of the best steakhouses you will find. The wine list is always top notch and Dino always takes great care of us. We ended the meal the a cheesecake that was so good I purchased two pieces to take home. This place is worth the drive wait and the experience!!!!!

We went for an early Sunday Dinner and enjoyed the food. There was a large family group on Outside Dining area. This group did not interfere with our enjoyment.
Food was excellent. Service was horrible.
The waiter as well as other staff kept forgetting about us. Delays delays delays. I have no idea why. But the service was among the worst we have ever had. I suspect it was just the particular waiter we had.
worth the wait
even tho we had a reservation, there was an hour wait...not sure if they overbooked on this saturday nite or was becuz of mothers day weekend. the manager was sensitive to our frustration and treated us to drinks and an appetizer! the food and service was great once we were seated---despite the bad start, we would go back
Great Place to have dinner
We discovered Volare from a friends recommendation. We have had great service, fantastic food, and a lovely atmosphere every time! I would recommend this place to many. I hope you have a chance to discover this gem!
Not so good this time
This was our third visit to Volare and I'm not sure we would go back. Our reservation was for 7:00 and we squeezed and shuffled near the bar to get out of the server's way while we had a drink and were waiting for our table (40 minutes past our reservation time). The waiter was not attentive or personable, maybe he was having a bad day, but the service was fair at best. The salad was great, pizza was good, as well. Osso buco was tough and not very flavorful. Our past experiences were much better all-around.
I can't believe it took us so long to find this place! Three couples enjoying great food and company. The food was excellent, the service second to none, and we even had some unexpected fun with the bartender.
Volare March 24, 2016
Always an enjoyable place, however I rated the service as fair because of the young man assisting with drinks and service. He looked very inexperience and nervous. Dropped and broke a salt mill right next to one of our guests, then spilled water right over my shoulder and onto me and into my purse. Sadly, I remember this young man from a visit in December, when I remember similar awkwardness, however maybe not the mishaps.
dinner with friends
We had a wonderful dinner. The restaurant was busy and the service was a little slow at first. But that is ok since we had time to visit with our friends. The food and wine were great. Our server's suggestions were spot on. One thing to note: if you love wine, besides the wine list on the back of the menu, there are other wines not listed. Just ask. We found out too late that there were some Chateau-neuf de Pape that we might have considered!

Had a reservation at 5. We were the only ones in the restaurant until 6.
Pleasantly surprised. Best meatballs around!
Tried this place on a whim. Pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent and the portions were big. Had the peppers and sausage which packed heat with awesome flavor. The side of meatballs were some of the best I've had outside of grandma's. Over all a great experience. FYI, split a starter salad as they are giant. Keep up the good work guys. We'll be back.
First time and will return
We had dinner there for the first time last weekend. Very crowded, which is always a good sign in my opinion. Beautiful building, and looks quite inviting when you pull into the parking lot. Inside, the place was much smaller than what we were excepting. A lot of tables in a small area-our chairs were actually bumping the chairs of the group sitting at the table behind us. Fresh bread and water was immediately brought to the table as soon as we were seated. My husband and son both had a seafood linguini dish and both loved it. I had the chicken parmesan and it was tasty. We had the chocolate cake for dessert and it was out of this world. The only disappointment was that we felt very rushed. Our meals came out before we even had a chance to eat 1/2 our salad. Also, we had to ask for more bread and fresh parmesan. The food was a bit pricey, but seems fair for the quality and quantity of food. Overall, we will return.
Made a reservation weeks ago. Told them ...
Made a reservation weeks ago. Told them we were celebrating a special birthday. Called today to make sure they knew. Did not acknowledge birthday. When we told waiter he brought a bday dessert and charged us $15 for a piece of chocolate cake. Very disappointing special evening. Service was fair. I ordered a side. Waiter did not even tell me they ran out of it until I asked. Cowboy steak was not what was expected.
Great, but too cold in the enclosed patio section
We have previously dined at Volare with great experiences. It was our first trip in cold weather this time. We were seated in the Patio area which is enclosed in winter. It was super cold, and got worse as the evening progressed. The ceiling hung space heaters warmed our upper bodies but all or legs and feet froze! They need to close this are in colder weather. Also, our waitress was assigned a table of 12 in the other area of the restaurant and she was unable to effectively cover our table as well.
While visiting Wixom for an athletic event, I searched for the best restaurant: Volare. Service, Salad, Entrée and dessert was delicious. We were seated in the outdoor area. It was a bit cold to be out there that evening and many people had to keep their jackets on. My son had an outstanding steak for dinner. My breaded shrimp had an excessive amount of breading which I removed, but the sauce was fantastic.
We had rigatoni with sausage and lasagna. ..my rigatoni was cold and tasteless and the lasagna was burnt on the bottom. ..will never go back...service was horrible too
Over priced, not as good as I remembered.
It was a very disappointing evening. I went there for my birthday. We had a tray full of dishes dropped by a waiter, broke and hit us. Waiter and manager did not do anything to make sure we were OK. Food was over priced. The old Volare was much better. I would never go back there again.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion
We dined at Volare to celebrate my wife's birthday. The staff was friendly and attentive from the moment we walked in the door. Our waiter was very knowledgeable with the menu and made suggestions that enhanced our entrees. His wine recommendation, a pinot noir, went very well with the grilled salmon. We finished the meal with a huge shared piece of cheesecake. Delicious, but we had to take half of it home with us.
We picked Volare by using open table last minute and had a wonderful meal. we will definitely be back!

Volare has outstanding food and excellent service (Alex is a great waiter!) Some of the best Italian dishes imaginable married with mouth-watering steaks and chops. A real treat.

Now that we have tried your Butter tender Filet...we HAVE to come back and try other selections on the menu and Brunch ! We came on Busy New Year's Eve and were so impressed with the warm Hospitality of the owner's wife, which gave a welcomed and homey atmosphere. Thank you for caring and the Quality you give in your wonderful restaurant.
I happened to find this place while surfing the internet for a nice restaurant for our date night. I am so glad I did! The food was amazing and the staff was friendly. It is a little pricey but definitely worth it!!
They have some of the best steaks in town. Add that to great pasta and an amazing wine list and you can't go wrong. Highly recommend!
This is a small neighborhood gem. We made a reservation for 6:00 P.M. on a Saturday. I wasn't convinced we needed one but the restaurant was already busy when we arrived and quickly filled up. We had an intimate table for two that was just right for our romantic evening. The wait staff gave us just the right amount of attention without overwhelming us. Our water glasses never went empty and plates were cleared after an appropriate amount of time had passed to ensure we had actually finished. The wine list is adequate. Our food was fabulous. This is an Italian steakhouse and the menu reflected that. Everything we chose was excellent. I don't think you can go wrong here. We split a five layer chocolate cake for dessert that was decadent. Great place! We'll be back!

Volarie's was great. There were 9 of us everyone of us loved the food. Our server was great her name was Andrea wonderful. We will be back.
Outstanding Food and Wine
The food and wine was outstanding. I had the veal chop my friend had the lamb chop and they were out of this world. The staff suggested a great bottle of wine and service was top notch.
A pleasant surprise
Nice looking building outside, had never been to the area before....nice vipe inside.... hostess was great...waiter was odd, truly going thru the motions but didn't really care what we ate.! He kept telling us the entrees came with salad and veg, but we had to ask what the veg was! (veg, not vegetable!) My husband asked for pasta with his Italian veal entree, but no, only veg! He still did not tell us what the veg was or mention we could order a separate pasta as a side! just wierd....I had eggplant that was dry but still good and the beet salad which was also good, but the beets were sliced a little thick which made them hard....but I would try it again. My husband said the veal was really good. bread and olive oil was really good
One of our favorite restaurants!
Worth every minute of the drive - this is a destination but you will be so happy you went! The steaks are unreal (my husband still talks about the first cowboy steak he ate here 3 years ago and is what keeps him coming back). We went with a large group and tried a bunch of things and you can't go wrong. Great wine selection as well.
Usually good; not this night
Love the ambience and the quiet. Have been here before. Service is exceptional. But $21 for a Manhattan is ridiculous ... and an adjustment to $16 was nice, but still very high. My salmon was so salty that I had to send it back. The waitperson was lovely about replacing my order, but I declined since it would mean I was eating while others were done. I believe the food is usually good and the portions huge, but the prices are high and, for me, the food is rather rich. Other visits have been much more successful and Volare is a place to go for special occasions, I think.
