Voila French Bistro Ratings and Reviews
The experience was just okay for us. We asked our hostess her favorite item on the menu and she could not. She pointed us to the special instead, but not because she identified it as her favorite. Both of our dishes ordered were warm, but not hot. Exceptions were the escargot and bread, both of which were hot and fantastic. I ordered the chicken in the puff pastry and it was overcooked. The highpoint of the meal for us was dessert. We ordered the grand marnier souffle, and it was amazing. Then because it was our anniversary they also brought us a flottante, which was also very good.
Voila is a wonderful neighborhood French Restaurant with fabulous food and attentive, thoughtful service. We've been there a number of times this year and the food is always great. Try the Beef Bourgogne, the duck confit or the scallops in puff pastry. Save room for one of their raspberry or chocolate soufflés for dessert!
The boeuf bourguignon, curried chicken in pastry, and choucroute de mer were good but 'tomato reduction' (ketchup) splotches in the scallops really threw off the taste of an otherwise good sauce, and the branzino en papillote was presented in aluminum foil, really making the dish unappetizing. Our first dinner here was really good, food-wise, which is why we returned for a special dinner with extended family. At those prices, however, one would expect things to be just right. The service is efficient, but rather brusque, subtracting from the ambience. We might come back, as the food is creative and tasty (minus tomato reductions), but would hope that these wrinkles are ironed out.
I don't understand how a place can be so erratic. We had eaten here about six weeks ago and had a fabulous meal. Everything this time tasted like the chef had dumped a salt shaker in it. And I mean everything the soup and both of our main courses. Also the chicken dish in the puff pastry was nothing at all like it was previously it had some kind of wet sauce on it that bog down the entire dish. When we mentioned this to the server she more or less insisted that's the way it always was made so so much for customer service. They did take my husband's main course off the meal price. Very sad to have a really good time last month and have such a bad time this time.
Voila dining experience...disappointing. service was very good, ambience delightful. Starting salads (asparagus, nicoise) excellent. Plats principales: scallops delectable, fish in parchment...tasteless. creme brulee excellent. Pear tart with almond paste...sounded terrific...was inedible. Too bad.
Nice spot but not as nice as the other reviews made it out to be. I would however go back again. I felt it was a good value for what we got. Service was good until the end when we wanted to pay, had to go and get the waitress after waiting for over 5 minutes.
My wife and I are frequent diners at Voila. It is a small, quiet place to enjoy great French food; we frequently take guests for an evening where we can hear one another and enjoy the leisurely, attentive service. I have recommended Voila to my friends a a place to spend a comfortable evening.
French dining died years ago in America; people thought that it was fattening with the butter and cream. However, the French are not fat! Voila serves wonderful meals with a limited menu. Two of us had the French onion soup and my daughter had the escargot. For the entree, I had the scallops in a puff pastry. So too with my daughter. My wife had the lamb meal. All three were wonderful. We topped it off with the slouffe. Jean-Christophe is the chef and Sangolene runs the front of the house. The main character of French food is the taste. The meal was exquisite.
Voila is a lovely setting for a quiet dinner that includes wonderful food and excellent service. Our evening was spent with friends from Kansas; we enjoyed a three hour meal - and we were always made to feel comfortable. Very European in that respect - no one is trying to rush one's dinner so they can turn a table. In summary, I would say that I found the prices to be moderate for such quality and ambience.
An intimate, casual cafe in a small Scottsdale strip mall that serves food as authentic as any I have enjoyed in Paris. The chef and his wife are recent arrivals from France. Have dined there now for several lunches, each time trying a different dish. The French Onion soup was excellent with just the right amount of melted cheese. The Croque Monsieur was beautifully done. The quiches, both salmon and Quiche Lorraine were yummy, portions are very generous. For another great selection, try the salad with bacon, croutons and a poached egg on top, a total meal. The salad was dressed perfectly. Have tried two desserts, the meringue islands, very light and pleasant. But the best, so far, was the Creme Brulee, amazing sugar crust with delicious smooth custard underneath. With Voila I look for excuses to go out to lunch or to take friends for a real treat.
Great service. Special salmon tartare and oysters exceptional. Onion sou fair. Very decent Dover sole. Had a groupon which they would not honor since they were new owners. As a new customer it was very off putting. Suck it up and they'd have a customer for life.
I took a friend of mine who enjoys excellent restaurants in her travels a marketing director for a major 5 star resort. She absolutely raved about her dinner!!!! We both enjoyed the lovely ambiance, our beautiful hostess and her suggestions, and the entire experience was perfect. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy excellent French food, wonderful service and a quiet and cozy ambiance. I will return!!! I have also enjoyed lunches there, and their quiche is out of this world.
