We generally like this restaurant however from the time we ordered our food nearly 45 minutes passed before we received it.. No one said anything to us about the cause of the delay.

The burger was delicious! The French fries were very disappointing. Belgium fries are fabulous! you fries are not Belgium fries. I love fries and I couldn’t eat yours. I suggest someone go to Belgium and taste them. They are fresh, thicker than yours and cooked to a very light golden color. They come to the table steaming hot. I was excited to have them but very disappointed when they came to the table. False advertising, not a good idea.

Et Voila was as wonderful as always. We had friends from out of town with us, so we enjoyed a table on the sidewalk, which made a perfect setting for long conversations. We all shared endive salads, which have much more flavor than the typical endive salad, and we each had different main courses. I had the trout which, as always was delicious. We shared a floating island and and praline ice cream dessert (don't remember what all was in it)---perfect endings to a wonderful dinner.

The food was exquisite, my boyfriend and I could not decide who had the better dish. I had the branzino, he had the beef - both were delicious. The waiter was friendly, helpful, and had a great sense of humor. The desserts were also fantastic, but large so you might want to share. A thoroughly wonderful experience.

Best neighborhood restaurant, consistently, deliciously. Just a bit noisy for easy conversation, despite efforts at sound absorption. Hasn’t stopped us from being frequent diners however.

Was a daughter and dad night out. She had the salmon and I had the paparadelle pasta with lamb. We each had a great glass of Italian red wine. I had the beet salad as a starter. Service was timely and attentive. Et Voila was crowded but not relatively noisy. One of my top ten in DC, do make reservations!

Hadn't been to Et Voila in a long time. The expansion was really well done and the noise level has dropped and made for much easier conversation. As for the food: the Norwegian sole was magnificent; expensive, but a rare treat and big enough to share. The branzino -- if you've gotten tired of seeing branzino everywhere, this one was is like a new discovery - the best I've ever had. Our third had moles, perfect as usual.
