Went to a celebratory dinner with five family members. We had seafood starter, pastas, and entrees. Drinks and champagne as well. All the food was great and the drinks were large and strong. Service was like we were their best customers. Always enjoy Volare.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

Anywhere from decent casual to dress. Because of location, they are close to some large businesses. People come after work in their suits and lunch time. Don't see too much scruffiness in here.
