Volvér has been named a Five-Star Restaurant by Forbes Travel Guide in its 2016 Star Ratings. Only 56 restaurants around the world received Forbes’ highest rating. Restaurants that receive the highest rating are described as “outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities.”

The Forbes guide was formerly the Mobil Travel Guide and has been issuing ratings since 1958. The last restaurant in Philadelphia to receive five stars was the Fountain at the Four Seasons, which had it five consecutive years before closing in December of 2014.

Volver has been open for 22-months now and has seen more than a few tweaks from its early days of only offering ticketed dining via its own web site and exorbitant pricing. Today, the restaurant offers 8 and 12-course menus for $95 and $150 respectively.

Lacroix at the Rittenhouse Hotel received 4 stars from Forbes.
