I went to this restaurant for Toronto Summerlicious. The service and environment were good. I ordered my dinner from the Summerlicious menu which was fixed on 35 dollars. I had Seafood Barley Pilaf as my main course and my son had Braised Lamb Shank. The Scallop of my plate was just well done and tested good. But my son did... More

Outstanding service, delicious food, great wine list, beautiful room. I really like this place. Our waiter was great. Had the roasted lamb shank and the meat fell off the bone. Absolutely delicious. Would definitely go back

Volos is not for the weak wallet. The food is good and they have a decent wine list. The service was a little haphazard. He forgot our flaming cheese starter and I was glad that I reminded him. That is good. Tables are a bit close together so you hear others conversation. Background music was a constant bass rythym. A... More

The food was great and service not so bad taking into consideration that it was busy. However, with tip it cost more than $250 for two of us

I have been to this restaurant several times and will be coming back. It never disappoints and the food is refined and delicious. Except... This time I was there for the summerlicious menu. The first two courses were delicious as always. When we got to desert we opted for the lighter 'pressed yogurt with berries'. That was a mistake and... More

My wife and I had a great meal. This included good service and a friendly manager (Al). I ordered items that I've had many times at Greek restaurants; salad, moussaka and baklava, but all three stood out from the ordinary. If I had to put my finger on one idea it is the perfect use of herbs and ingredients. The... More

I've been here a couple of times, and I have been underwhelmed. Food is unquestionably well prepared, but this is much more a place for business lunches than for serious or exciting eating. Atmosphere is classy, but quiet, which is probably the idea.

Try eating 'Plaka Style' at Volos. Order multiple appetizers. The saganaki and the calamari are great - as is the octopus. The atmosphere is excellent and the staff are welcoming and helpful. The food is great. This is definitely a top Toronto restaurant. On the corner of York and Richmond it is convenient to downtown and the entertainment district.

The food is of a high international standard. Best octopus I have ever had; properly cooked (not rubbery) with subtle sauce and eggplant dip. Fisherman's stew was delicious and overflowing with seafood. Service was attentive and I was made to feel comfortable while dining alone. Atmosphere was pleasant and diners were wearing everything from t-shirt with baseball hat to full... More

Nice clean restaurant, prompt, friendly service and the tastiest octopus we've ever eaten. Will definitely order it next time. Volos was recommended to us and we were initially taken aback by the prices, having expected a more moderate restaurant. This is a classy place and with all the disappointing restaurants we've experienced, they delivered the quality worthy of the price.... More
