Never fails!

This is my fall-back restaurant in Louisville. If you want to be certain that every guest will find something that they will love, that the service will be great, that the ambience will be conducive to whatever mood you are in, this is the place.

Great experience at Volare tonight! Waiter went beyond the call of duty checking on a wine that met our needs and the sea bass and osso bucco were delicious. While obviously very busy, the service was attentive, friendly and extremely helpful.

Whenever we are in Louisville, Volare is on our itinerary. Started dining here in 2012 and have been back every year since (some times twice). Why try any other place when Volare offers the best of everything. Food, service and ambiance are "second to none"! And the staff is professional and friendly. We always get a warm greeting from Tarek,... More

We happened by this restaurant by accident. A small café we were going to try was closed and this was within walking distance. The weather was frigid and we were hungry so we gave it a shot although we were not looking to eat heavy that night. We were greeted by friendly staff, directed to a table, and service was... More

I love this restaurant. Service is great. The food is so full of flavor. They do this special occasion dessert 'apple' made from sugar. You break it open with your spoon and cake and fruit falls out. Valet parking too. Great wine selection too. Just great meals every time we go.

This restaurant was perfect for our anniversary dinner. We got an early table and enjoyed the quiet early in the evening. The service was wonderful - including the free valet parking and the heated alcove near the front door. Staff was attentive and professional in every way. We enjoyed the scallops appetizer - remarkable! The sea bass and salmon dinner... More

We were with a great group. The service was friendly. They had three specials, including salmon, sea-bass and pulled beef. I had the third special, which was delicious. Everybody in the group was raving about the food. The waitress was attentive. They gave us the time to have our drink and discuss the menu. It was a great experience. I... More

We went to hear the entertainment (which was great! Female vocalist and pianist) and discovered delicious entrees. My husband's steak was well cooked and seasoned while I enjoyed one of the chef's specials, Sea Bass in a lemon cream sauce. The fish was perfectly cooked and nestled on fingerling potatoes with steamed fresh spinach as a side. Well worth the... More

Enjoyed dinner in this restaurant last night. We were a group of six. The service was excellent... even when a glass of red wine was spilled and the entire table was cleaned and re-set (while we waited at the bar!) The food was excellent. The special was flank steak sous vide and the portion was large enough for my boyfriend... More

Fine dinning, a bit pricey, great fillet steaks. Didn't have reservations but was seated immediately, service was prompt. Would go there again.
