We did the whole 12 course tasting thing which, with tip, came in at just over $700. It just ain't that special. The on-view kitchen seemed to be having a good time, but the front-of-house staff just seemed to be going through the motions -...More

Very nice restaurant located at the Kimmel Center and convenient for attending the symphony. We had the pre-theater prix fixe menu which was very fairly priced. The food was all delicious. It was inventive without being too crazy and strange. Everything was cooked perfectly and...More

Terrible service from arrogant, mirrored tied, rosebud wearing waiter. As for the "pre-theater" food: no bread offered and the lamb burger was the worst - soft wet bun (grocery store mush from a "Garces" restaurant?)- thought a cibatta bun, brioche, even two pieces of pita...More

Volver is inside the Kimmel center, so very convenient after a concert. It has a large dining area so it can easily accommodate relatively big parties. The decor is fun and modern (although perhaps a bit too dark for my taste). The food is a...More

Decent tasting food didn't make up for the slow service. Drink order (cava & beer) took 30 minutes. A Diet Coke ordered when first sat down didn't arrive until near the end of the meal. They recommended we have a 6p reservation for their 'pre-theater...More

If you buy theatre tickets, you will note that there's a combination thing with Volver and the Theatre in that Volver has a "pre-theatre" meal of three courses. Under most circumstances, one might be scared off thinking there's something fishy about the deal in it...More

My husband and I came to Volver as part of a package deal; tickets to a show, and pre-theater dinner. The dinner was pre-paid, for the exception of drinks. Our reservation was for 6:30pm, show was at 8pm. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting....More

At a least an hour and a half for the right course, and at least two for the 12, however, if you have a time constraint the servers will always accommodate you.
