“Good stop and not the typical airport food ”
Review of Vino Volo

Vino Volo
Ranked #1,324 of 3,750 Restaurants in Washington DC
Description: Vino Volo is a chain that locates wonderful wine bars in airports. I visited the one at Dulles in DC. Dulles is not the cultural capital of the universe. Vino Volo was a wonderful oasis -- quiet, nice music, lovely and interesting wine, nice small plates of food. Totally civilized and wonderful in every way. This needs to be a major TripAdvisor FIND -- will make many traveler's lives much more pleasant.

An hour before boarding and what to do? Husband liked his pulled pork taco and I enjoyed a cheese platter and small salad. We did not partake of the wine flights but other customer were keeping the lone server hopping. Husband enjoyed his IPA beer. Very pleasant stop and they have wifi.

If you are looking for a great place to eat & wine before boarding your plane Vino Volo is the best option. Its in B Gates section just getting out the electric ladders from the train. Great wines and the food is small but enough for a flight if you want to be a light in the plane. It's just in front of B52 Gate.

This chain/franchise seems to get bigger and bigger. First D.C. now San Antonio. Soon it will be all over the country. What a waste of lease space ! While this concept sounds ok - Spanish looking wine/bar with a large selection of wines and some nice appetizers..the execution is just a nuisance. The nuisance is part of the concept of the franchise..so it is not specific to the location. For example..while the food selection looks nice..they are basically overprized appetizer size small bites with little or no flavor. The wine selection looks nice as well. Problem is..the reasonable ones taste pretty bad and you would have to spend 15, 20 USD or more to get a nice glass of wine. Then they offer you all kind of specials. Well - they are really not that special Basically the tasting of 3 glasses of wine which ends up in the average of the individual ones. Or some kind of membership to their wine club. Well that is kind of like buying a timeshare for a AA meeting location. The best thing are their leather sofas...luckily the location in Dulles has some of those and therefore the 3 stars.

First time I have been here but it was perfect for a light bite before the overnight back to London. Didn't try wines but they seemed to be getting nice purrs from weary travellers on other tables.
Food very well presented and service all the eagerness of a new place but not overdone.
I had the salmon rolls not sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The fruit gallete was excellent and by time boarded and got in air ready for sleep whilst others fiddling with meal trays.

This restaurant makes you feel like you're NOT in an airport. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and left you alone :-) With WIFI you can sit, sip wines from all over the world, have some great fancy snacks. Elegant and relaxed---and steps from your gate...
