Not bad, just not, well....above average. Comparable to a decent take-out place that uses fresh ingredients. I'm a little surprised it's survived, given the food and the non-central location. On the plus side, service was OK. (Though it should have been; the place was almost...More

There is a great attempt at creativity in the cooking and presentation, however, it does not hit the bar with most dishes. For our party of ten the general consensus was that disappointment with the meal. Standard Greek dishes like moussaka lacked flavor and substance.

We should have walked back out the door and chosen another place to eat. Food was overpriced, service was horrible, and the food was just fair to okay. We even arrive before the dinner crowd hit but still very poor service.

We went to Volta for the first time the other evening, and it will be our last to this pretentious, expensive restaurant. The patio was the nicest part of Volta. We ordered ice tea and when we asked for sugar and sweetener, Stevia was brought...More
