Contrary to what others are saying, I was left a little wanting from Volt. Yes, the place is trendy and glamerous; Yes, the food and the wine are delicious. But, there are lots of places that tick those boxes in London and I didn't think Volt really set itself apart. The staff were cool and good-looking, but I felt there was some direction lacking .. the bar staff seemed more panicky than composed, the waiting staff were difficult to attract to the table. The gap between the bar and the first table is too cramped, leaving drinkers squished into little groups and the diners overcome with those trying to get to the bar. The music is cool, but loud. The food is delicious but there is hardly any choice. The location of the restaurant is also interesting as there are no others like this in the area. It's a funky and cool experience, but I was confused whether Volt was a cocktail bar or a restaurant.
