I have had the opportunity to visit Volo many times. It is located on a street corner in downtown Toronto about 3-4 blocks south of one of the city's busiest intersections (Yonge/Bloor).
Selection: The selection is excellent with beer from many different styles. Unlike other restaurants in the city (Beer Bistro/Smokeless Joe) the geographic selection is smaller, primarily Canada, US, Britain, Belgium, and Germany with some fringes her and there.
Atmosphere: The atmosphere is very publike. There is a dank inside and a spacious patio outside. Some of the the bankettes are covered with fake animal fur (they remind me of skins). U like the Beer Bistro, Volo has more of a Pub feel to it where you can sit and talk among several tables.
Service: The service to date has been nothing to write home about. It can be excellent, it can be poor. I've had my beer brought to me within 2-3 minutes when the place has been packed, and I've waited 10-15 minutes when the place was close to empty.
Value: I find the prices at Volo reasonable for both the beer and the food. The food menu is outstanding with pastas and pizzas (and some vegetarian fare) to suit almost anybody's palate.....and it's very good (not great, but more than enjoyable).
All in all, if you are looking for a great beer selection, and a cozy atmosphere, I believe that Volo is the place for you.
