I liked the concept of iPad ordering which was fine until you order an extra item like desert. The request disappeared into the World Wide Web and required two requests of a human to retrieve. Five Guys hamburgers are far superior and when you add the difference in pricing avoid Volant's offering. However, my wife enjoyed her Caprese Salad and... More

Ate here with a business associate while on a trip to Minneapolis. As we sat down we even made a joke about "airport pasta", but surprisingly the food was delicious. I couldn't believe how good it was. The service was decent as well, but we were only two of about 6 people in the whole place. Admittedly, the iPad ordering... More

We stopped in to Volante for a nice dinner prior to our flight to Europe. The seafood pasta was delicious though served a little cool. The waiter quickly returned it to the kitchen & brought it back piping hot with apologies. That good service was a first for me at an airport dining establishment.

Need negative stars for this place! So the first red flag is you are encouraged to order using the ipad at each table/bar stool. Interesting idea, but terrible in execution! My initial order went through, but subsequent additions were hit or miss. I blame the computer ordering system, but really, I'd much rather just say "another beer please". A major... More

Where to start....my friend and I had a long layover and after leaving 90 degree weather in Vegas we were stuck here in 36 degree weather which put me in the mood for soup. We sit down and 15 minutes later are greeted by a server that seemed like his phone was more important tHan his guests. Makes sense because... More

Pizza was served very quickly, but tasted like it had been cooked with a blow torch. The waiter was snooty and disappeared after the pizza was delivered. You tip before being served on the ipad. MISTAKE. I had to go to the bar to get more water.

I ordered a mac & cheese dish. This was really exceptional. The best airport food I have ever eaten. Another customer sitting by me had ordered a shrimp dish. She said the same thing. Service was really quick too.

I had a long layover and ordered a late lunch. I found it Interesting that I was require to tip the severs prior to any service. The menu options lacked a bit. I had a lackluster soup a boring salad and a scallop appetizer which had many flavor enhancing ingredients yet tasted like nothing. The server I had was very... More

My wife, daughter, and I stopped here for dinner. My wife's risotto was okay but undistinguished. Our daughter enjoyed her pasta carbonara. I ordered a cheeseburger that came only with caramelized onions and cheese. The beef was a bit dry and overcooked. I was hoping for something with lettuce and tomato. The Caesar salad was fairly good. The asian lady... More

We were early for our flight so sat down, super cool idea order when you are ready and take your time going through the menu. Ordered Roast beef sandwich which you couldn't remove anything on, and a burger, 2 ice teas all that for $48. Complete rip off, food was edible but not worth even half of what we paid,... More
