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

Great for a business lunch, special occasion dinner or just a fun night out, Volos is one our our favorite Greek restaurants in the city. The service is great and it is located very centrally downtown; we have returned many times for great greek and a memorable night out. They prepare fish very well, as they do lamb, salads, and...

We had dinner on the weekend at Volos and the whole experience was terrific. The food was excellent - fresh and well prepared and the service was very attentive and appropriate. If you are in down town Toronto this is a must on the top list

I didn't check the reviews first, so didn't have any preconceived ideas. My wife and I felt it was just so-so. $14 for the Greek Manhattan with only 2.5 oz of brandy was a lot. The waiter suggested a glass of the Roditis white wine - frankly, we liked Trader Joe's 2-buck chuck better. On the plus side the Horiatiki... More

Volos, whilst not being the cheapest is a very good spot for business lunches. The food is always excellent and I have been there on several occasions and have never been disappointed by the quality and range of the dishes. Sevice has always been top quality
