vibe: 5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5 | $$

Just walking in the door put me in the throes of ecstasy. Right there was a cooler full of fine beers, plus the top of said cooler was loaded with great, spent bottles. Holy Tintin, Batman, I’ve really arrived! The whole place was free-form, with seat yourself seating; an open-air quality with the doors wide; the randomness of the seating area, which was split by a blonde wood divider; and the extremely short bar, which looked more like a wine bar than anything else. I settled for a marble-topped table for two, tangentially overlooking the patio to my right. The breeze kept me alert and the washrooms were to my left, down a flight of stairs. The kitchen was all of the way aft, on the right side.

The selection was amazing! They had so many things that I wanted to try, but many of them were in either bombers or cork-conditioned bottles, any of which would have been too much for this solo traveler at Volo, wearing a bolo (tie). As to the atmosphere – I felt as though I was sitting in a Parisian café circa the 1920’s. I kept awaiting the arrival of members of the Lost Generation, but at least the headwaiter came over to see how I was doing. Pen and ink notebooks have that effect on people. I just sat there, astounded, listening to the great banter among the staff and contemplating a return visit.
