Unfortunately friends invited us to be their guests at pretentious Volver before a concert at the Kimmel Center next door, which we almost missed because of terribly disorganized & intrusive service. Then there's the supposedly trendy & outrageously pricey cuisine...served in such remarkably small portions...More

I had heard a lot about Volver and was looking forward to going. What a disappointment! The first problem was service. The waiter forgot to get my glass of wine that I ordered when we first sat down, and we had to get someone else...More

Finally after three firm requests the huffy hostess turned the inordinately loud music down, so that we could at least try to hear & converse with the other friends at our table of four. A tryout for drinks - before investing in a full-blown dinner...More

Stopped in to try the restaurant out since I am a Chef Garces fan. The menu was very limited, the portions were so small it was laughable but the food was delicious. Great atmosphere but very pricey.

Little disappointed to see the menu. Too small. The online menu is bigger and has lot of foods that does not match the current menu in the restaurant. It is misleading to customers. So, my suggestion to the restaurant is to update the online menu....More

The establishment is beautiful. The service & food is great, except the portions were very small. The biscuits were the size of a quarter. The desserts were small as well. I thought the place was a bit overrated.

The title says it all, and the food is really reasonably priced when you consider the quality. Nice wine list too, but that is where things become a little pricier. But we had a fantastic experience, we practically had the place to ourselves, which sounds...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.
