    The brunch menu was comprehensive, two of our party had the farmer’s omelette and was superb. The short rib hash was tasty and the salmon and egg bagel really appetising. The staff were friendly and the views fantastic from the balcony. All an all I would highly recommend.

    Unbelievable experience. The food was great, the staff was so nice. A little pricey, but you are watching planes come and go. You're paying for the ambiance. Worth it for sure, our breakfast for 2 with alcohol was @80.00.

    We heard good things about the restaurant and the view of the runway to watch the plans, so decided to make a reservation for lunch. The view of the runway to watch the planes land and take off during lunch was great. The food portions were good size. Unfortunately, one of the women in our party ordered two items that should have come at the same time, but arrived very late. Izzie was our server and was friendly, but could have been more attentive. I think the restaurant may have been experiencing a staffing shortage. I would go back again the next time I'm in Scottsdale.

    I really wanted to like this restaurant but am having difficulty coming up with justification for that. There are some good points here, however. Signage to the restaurant and parking is extremely weak, but there’s a valet who will point you in the right direction. Our reservations were for 7pm, but upon arrival 5 minutes early we were told that we’d have to wait “some time”. 15 minutes later we were told the same but were then given the end of a shared table. We were informed “not to worry, there will be an empty space between you and the others”. That space disappeared when another large group showed up a half hour later. Our server, Sita, was friendly and attentive. The food quality is unexpectedly good, albeit excessively pricy. There are many other better restaurants in the area at this price point, so it’s unclear why I’d return. With a front-row seat overlooking the Scottsdale airport runway, conversations are frequently interrupted by a take-off or landing, but that’s part of the charm of Volanti.

    Desert seafood is so dicey….but not here! The incredibly fresh and perfectly prepared shrimp and sea bass were a delight. And don’t miss the brussel sprouts. The mixology game is tight with fresh juices, herbs, and unique salts. Don’t fear that the food and drink plays second chair to the amazing view.

    I have eaten here at least a dozen times in the last 8 months. I’ve had brunch or dinner and It’s always fantastic. The ambience is truly unique. It’s my favorite place to take family and friends from out of town as well as our go-to spot for date nights.

    One star deducted because chairs are quite uncomfortable. Otherwise the food is very good, service excellent and the setting can't be beat for aircraft lovers. This visit was for lunch, but we have been there in the evening and that is also quite enjoyable!

    Food was great as usual, and if you like planes and the sounds of jets taking off, this is the place for you. I recommend the Burger and Chicken Sandwiches. The Turkey wrap was tasty, but pretty of skinny on the amount of Turkey for a $20 wrap to be honest. Outside of that, great place for lunch or some drinks.

    Always a fun time at Volanti! If you don't do noise, you can sit inside. But if you want to get a little sun, enjoy a superb view, and get your plane fix, Volanti is the perfect spot.

    Most of our food was good, but the tacos were not edible. Tenderloin sliders were no longer available, so that was disappointing. Wine special was great. Planes were fun to see, but noisy so we’ll probably sit inside next time. Also, we plan to have dinner instead of the small plates. The dinners looked delicious!

    We rarely review restaurants. We have dined at Volanti on more than 1 occasion over the last few months. The food has been somewhat subpar at best. We kept trying because we had family come in from out of town several times, and knew they would maybe enjoy the view of the planes and activity that you are privy to dining here. Something different. This last visit all we can say is....we both still had our sandwiches in our mouths, still eating, and the check was dropped at our table, with no explanation or the usual "here is your check, but no hurry." Nor asking if we wanted anything else. The hostess that greets you out front is always amazing, accommodating, and friendly. The wait staff is another story. On most days, you feel like they are not happy themselves, very disorganized, and not really wanting to be there let alone give you a good experience. Very sad. Thought we had found another go to spot being 20+ year residents. Wish them well.

    Food was over priced. I ordered the prime ribeye and had more fat than meat. My fiancé ordered the pork chops, not bad but nothing special for the price it was served. Desert was waaaay too thick in chocolate, barely had 2bites. Ambience was nice. Service was normal. Still tipped of coarse. It was an anniversary date, but would definitely come back as a regular normal date, spending a regular ticket less than $100, nothing more.

    I have been coming to this gem of an establishment for a year now. I have never had a bad experience. I bring my friends and family all the time. I decided to bring my friend for her 70th birthday. We order Crudite for appetizer and a salad for our main entree. Do you know we didn’t get our crudite for 45 minutes? And every time we tried to flag down a server they would either look away or ignored us! Our server NOT once came to our table to let us know “it was on the way” or refill our ice tea glass. When our crudite finally arrived to our table the salad came as well. Not once did our server apologized for the delay or if we needed anything. I was so embarrassed because I was bragging to my friend how amazing Volanti’s was and she had never been here. My friend was upset for me. The food was amazing but the service was a lot to be desired. I come to Volanti’s at least once a month. It will be a while before I will be back.
