Volare Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
It was a beautiful night to sit outside and we had our favorite server, Claudia. She did an excellent job handling a family gathering a few weeks ago and didn't disappoint this time either. My husband had the filet with a delicious (zip) sauce and I ordered a pasta dish, all of them good! We'll be returning with a group of friends in a couple weeks!
First visit to Volare and our party (4) found the occasson pleasant. For the most part our selections were prepared well with minor disappointments. ex. The pasta on the Tortelline in chicken broth was on the chewy side. The bread crumb coating seasoning on the Veal Scalopinni Parmagana was bland and our appetizer of Yellow Fin Tuna Crudo was not remarkable. Having said that our Salmon, veal, steak and chiken piccata dishes overall were authentic and overall good. Plan on coming back to experience their luncheon menu. P.S. Our waitress(Starr) was pleasant and attentive.
It took us an hour and 40 minutes to get our food. Many other tables had been seated after us and left, before we received ours. Our waitress kept telling us, they were fixing the problem and our food would be right out. We were told that at least 6 times. There were only 3 of us, so not sure what happened....
When we finally did get our meal, it was very good, but honestly we were frustrated and tired, so it wasn't enjoyed the way it should have been.
Food and service were both exceptional for sure. The facility was comfortable although we were inside the outside looked good. The filet steak was exceptional in quality/taste. The drinks were made very good. All the people were extremely attentive to us and personable..
Reservations were for a party of 2 and all indoor tables were taken...so we were seated outside
The slope of the patio while maybe great for drainage...placed the table at a pretty steep angle for dining and did wobble....not what one expects from a higher end restaurant.
Food is wonderful, service attentive....but lack of care was disappointing.
Had an enjoyable summer evening sitting outside. The Italian red wine list is extensive, took us awhile to pick, but you couldn't go wrong, excellent selection.
Our server was friendly and sweet.
The food was all delicious, with an extra special shout out to the lamb chops which were PERFECTLY prepared and the best we've had, maybe ever!
Good food but for the value of what we received I don't think it was worth it. They bragged about the steak I had the fielet medallions. They were ok but not the best. The white fish was the better that everything we had. Cake was the best w shared it with 5 people. 5 people, 2 people shared $225 I can get a better value other places.
Not sure why we hadn't been to the new location prior to now (Open Table does make it easier), we frequented the previous location. We actually had plans to go somewhere else and decided to stay close to home and so happy we did. It was a beautiful evening to sit outside, the service was amazing and more importantly, the food was outstanding. I had a scallops special with mushroom rissoto and it was delicious. My husband had a filet and it was outstanding, I don't eat steak very often and asked him for another taste after he shared! So very pleased with our experience. Thank you!
A lovely gem in the heart of Wixom. Have been there a number of times. Definitely a romantic atmosphere. Was a great place to take the love of my life to. Service was excellent on each occasion by all staff there and in particular service was most excellent with Gino who was our waiter. Very personable and provided first class service second to none. I give him and this establishment my highest recommendation.
Drink prices on menu out of date and waiter tries to make you pay the higher prices. Had to push hard to get them to honor menu drink prices. Food was just ok. Not worth the high prices. Specials for the night were $75-79!
They were conveniently out of two cheaper bottled wines forcing us to spend quite a bit more on drinks. Dinner for two no dessert $96 before tip.
Inconsistent is how to best describe Volare. We have been going on and off to Volare for 10+ years. This past weekend, my husband had a veal chop and minestrone soup, which he enjoyed. I had a Caesar salad and seafood risotto. The Caesar, which I am not even sure was romaine lettuce, was all bright green and not the firm lettuce of a typical Ceasar; no heart at all. My risotto, I am sad to say, while the flavor was good, was the worst risotto I have ever ordered. There was not one recognizable grain of rice; it was total muck. Why do we keep going back? Because it is so inconsistent and sometimes it is very good. The restaurant itself is charming and the staff are outstanding.
This was our second time visiting Volare restaurant since we moved to the area. Our first visit was sub par as it took awhile for our food and the service was just ok. We decided to give it another shot since it is so close to home my wife and I love Italian food. We made reservations for 6pm and and arrived around 5:50. We were greeted/seated and placed our drink and dinner order. Our drinks and salad came out timely. Our food however did not. We did not receive our food until 6:58 which was over an hour that we had been there. In the time while we were waiting two other couples that came in after us both had recieved their meals. The worst part of the experience was that I had to flag our waitress down to see what was the problem. Not once did she tell us that there was an issue or that it would be awhile. She never came back to check on us after our salads had been delivered so we went well over 30 minutes without even seeing her. Furthermore, if you've ever been to this restaurant you'll see that they have about 6 employees standing around at all times for "service" purposes, but they do a very poor job. Typically for a white table cloth, nicer restaurant you assume that you are paying for top notch service. In our two visits I can tell you that you do not receive it. In all honesty I feel like we have received better service at a typical chain restaurant like Applebee's. The food was decent at best. It's tough to give a valid review since we were so hungry by the time we received our food that anything sounded appetizing. We will not be returning to Volare and do not recommend it. Trust me your money is better spent elsewhere.
We walked in the door just about 5 minutes before our reservation. Despite being busy, we were seated right on time. The meal was extremely good and our waitress was fantastic. There was a small issue with our appetizer. Because the staff was so effcient, It actually came out after our salads. No problem from either my date nor myself, however that didnt stop the team from appologizing, and bringing us a complimentary desert, which was fantastic but unnecessary. We loved our experience and will definitely be returning.
Was very disappointed when requesting the horse radish vinaigrette on the side rather than the vinaigrette that typically comes with the dinner salad. The container barely had enough for one lettuce leaf and I was charged 2 dollars extra. It is also irritating to pay extra for different pasta noodles.
Took my adult twin girls here for their birthday. The atmosphere was both warm and elegant. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the authentic Italian cuisine served at Volare. The house salad dressing is wonderfully sweet and tangy. One daughter is a vegitarian and had gnocci. The other daughter had the veal scallopini masala and I had the veal parmasean, which were delicious! For dessert we had Cannoli and Tiramisu, which were to die for. I look forward to taking my two younger daughters there for their birthdays in September. YUM!
We had a great date night here. Our waiter, John, was awesome. Friendly and funny but not over the top. Will definitely be requesting his section from now on. Food was delicious. It is a little pricier here, but we don't get out often so we didn't mind. Steak medallion dinner is amazing!!!
My husband's veal and my salmon were both very good. The salads were disappointing. The dinner salad looked like Costco greens with a couple of olives and a tomato. One friend had a Caeser salad which was brown around the edges so he sent it back. They took it off the bill but did not provide a new one. Our other friend upgraded to a Caprese salad. She loved the balsamic drizzle and asked for more. The waiter said he would have to check with the manager and then came back and announced that there would be an additional $3 charge if she wanted more dressing as it "is expensive to make"!
This was our second time there in 3 months. Both times the main dishes were very good but service was sketchy. Both times, our waiters appeared to be a little "disconnected". We all wondered what they were doing out in the back before dinner. This time we took friends there for his 60th birthday and we were embarrassed by the service. Refill glasses and some plates were never removed from the table. The waiter never offered a desert menu without me asking, even though I told him it was a special birthday when we came in. We went out for ice cream afterward!
Sat at the bar with friends and had wine and a very good meal, served by our bartender/waiter named Dave. He is very helpful, witty and informed. Nice choice of wines without being overwhelming. Steaks are very good as are the Italian dishes. Probably our 10th visit. We will be back again soon.
Food was outstanding, wine menu was great service was good, only thing that could improve upon. Sat at the bar a great time talking with the bartender and other customers. This is without a doubt one of the best restaurants around let alone a great Italian steakhouse. I will be going back on a regular basis for sure.
