Voila French Bistro Ratings and Reviews
I took my 84 year old father to a special lunch. He was so appreciative of the great food, wonderful service and the elegant ambience. We will definitely be back soon. I wasn't aware that they are open for lunch until now. I know dad wants to return. A wonderful and special time.
Disappointing. We had very high expectations given the previous reviews. The mussels did not taste fresh and the escargot was bland. The sides served with the entrees where average at best. The server was below standard for this type of restaurant. There are better options in town for French food. The souffle and wine we're very good though. I might come here again for desert, but that would be it.
This was my first time at Voila. I found it to be a very cozy little bistro tucked into a corner. We were greeted when we entered, and sat at a nice table. I ordered the esgargots, but they were a little rubbery and tasteless. Then I tried to order the mussels, but they were out, so I got the mini mushroom quiche and my companion got the quiche Lorraine. This was absolutely the best quiche I have ever had in my life!! The pastry was so flaky, and the mushroom filling was excellent. My friend loved her quiche Lorraine also. They came with a salad, which had a nice dressing on it, but most of the leaves had brown spots on them. So I would go back for the quiche, avoid the escargots, maybe try the onion soup? The quiches are quite small, so unless you have a very small appetite, you should order 2
I only write this review to help the restaurant improve, not to needlessly complain. I have eaten at this restaurant several times and The food has been delicious, a bit overpriced. This time that I went, they did not have the muscles, which is one of their signature dishes. They said that they were out of muscles, that they did not get their shipment in, but if this is your specialty, I would make sure you have them. I saw people walk away as they approach the door. I ordered a steak Bernaise, the steak was of poor cut of meat and was overcooked. Overall fell below average. I hope that they improve, as I’d like to see them stay in business and do well.
We had been recommended to this restaurant. The parking is terrible in front of the restaurant and I discussed this with our waiter and they explained there was plenty of parking in the rear. We enjoyed a reasonably priced bottle of wine and very much the french food we ordered. The service was also efficient and very capable. Our visiting friend from California was impressed.
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.
This is a lovely place for lunch or dinner if you want authentic French food in a quiet Scottsdale neighborhood. A real find, the proprietors are French and their food is lovely. It is very close to the International School, a private school with French instructors.
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!
