Amazing food, staff and service. Everything was perfect! Can’t wait to go back. I had the crab pizza; it was incredibly delicious and not like anything I’ve ever eaten before. My husband has the pork belly/scallop special and said it was amazing.

Everything was most enjoyable. There were a few mixups with our breakfast orders at our table, it seemed a few of our servers were a bit confused. It was unfortunate but it didn’t affect our impression of the restaurant. We will definitely return! Our food was delicious, the roasted potatoes served with our omletes we’re amazing as well as our omelets.

Not only was the menu varied, the food tasty and the ambiance very pleasant but the service was extremely good. Highly attentive, with not only our primary server doing a wonderfully careful job but also, several other people who were particularly polite and responsive.

Today was my 5th time eating at Vola's outside. Have enjoyed it each time. I've ordered the shrimp tacos twice and would recommend them. Shakila was our waitress today, and she gave us excellent service! She recommended the key lime pie for dessert, and it was delicious! I'll be back again.
