Voila French Bistro Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I took a friend to Voila to celebrate the friend's birthday. It was our first visit as a result of a recommendation from some friends. The restaurant is located at the back of the Mercado neighborhood shopping center and is not visible from the parking lot until one is almost on top of it.
We all started out with the onion soup which was good with lots of melted Gruyere cheese. Our friend and I had the duck confit a la orange and my wife had the beef bourguignon. The main courses were attractively displayed on the plates and were hot as was our soup. The dishes were good but not great. We finished with sharing a creme brulee which was excellent and the high point of the meal. The service was very good since there were only a few other diners and we were the last customers to leave. The chef's wife greeted as and was very friendly.
We enjoyed our meal but are not sure if we would return.
1) No other patrons in the restaurant, arriving precisely at reservation time of 5 p.m., spent the next 20 minutes watching the owner and waitress run all around the small dining room fussing with their sound system. Waited 20 minutes before someone brought water, or bread, or a menu to the table due to their belief that adjusting the music in the restaurant was more important than attending to paying customers.
2) After receiving ordered dessert du jour, the owner was asked a question about the dessert and she responded, indignantly, "What? You don't like it?" and walked away from the table.
Don't need to return.
We felt we were back in France. We had four courses and each were superb. The service was impeccable. And very personable. The chef/owner and wife are from France and extremely skilled.
This was our first visit and has become one of our favorites.
If you want a true French dinning experience here...Viola is the place
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.
