    Food is excellent if you know what to order:order French and Belgian food, not Rigatoni or Hamburger. We sat in the "Patio" which actually was on the road, with a little wall to protect from traffic. The service was slow (probably depending on the kitchen or a lack of waiters for the many tables) but very friendly and professional. Pricey.

    Had a nice going away dinner for son’s girlfriend going way to law school. Your restaurant is one of our favorites. Steaks and branzino - delicious. The escargot was a bit more lemony or minty tasting than we’ve had there before but a lovely meal was had by all.

    Cold and mushy french fries, we were in the small side room, you need to take out several of the tables, just too crowded.. 2 of the drinks, French martini and Cosmo, barely drinkable.

    Et Voila always exceeds our expectations, which are high to begin with. The food is superb, the service is exceptional and attentive, and the atmosphere is great. The food is an authentic and well prepared combination of traditional Belgian and French cuisine and the wine list is to die for, and for the offerings, well priced. I highly recommend this as one of the best neighborhood restaurants in DC.

    We really enjoyed the dinner! The food was very good. The service excellent. We sat indoors in a very small table opposite to the hanging fork and spoon, but I liked not to be too close to other people as we are seniors and have some added health risks and prefer not to wear masks in the restaurant. ( There were no outside tables available and it would not have made any difference as it rained). The experienced was very good but the only thing that made us uncomfortable was that the waiter(who was excellent,) did nor wear a mask and due to the noise, had to raise his voice and speak closer to our faces without a mask. I understand it is uncomfortable to wear a mask but it would make a lot of diners more comfortable.

    Service was excellent. Food was great with one exception. The hanger steak, recommended by the waitperson to be ordered medium-rare, arrived with a beautifully crisped outer texture and a tartare center (blah!). The kitchen pre-sliced the steak so I was a little surprised it wasn't noticed. I didn't send it back because that always seems to spoil the cadence of the meal. While the waitperson was clearing, I pointed out the raw centers of meat from each slice and was told, "Well, the chef is Belgian, and they tend to cook things on the underdone side." I found this mildly irritating because I had specifically mentioned that I didn't want the steak to be too rare, asked if I should order it as medium, and was assured that it would be "perfect". I suppose the lesson is when in a Belgian restaurant, order meat one-two levels up on on the doneness scale...or just order the seafood! My two companions loved everything. I suppose I just hit the wrong item on the wrong night.

    We are regulars. Food is exceptional. My personal favorites are the Branzino and the steak frites. Also the french onion soup is by far one of the best made. Service is impeccable. Everyone always greets you and makes sure you are well taken care of.

    We were ignored after we sat down for at least 10 minutes. We had to ask for menus and water. Dinner was good, but we could not hear each other at a table for four. A busboy took away a bread plate before our guest was done with it -- bread and butter were still on the table uneaten. According to a sub-waiter, the kitchen refused to divide a dessert because it would result in "a mess." He finally dit it himself and it looked fine in two bowls and was delicious. Although this restaurant is one we often patronize, we do not plan to return any time soon. It's really too bad, because we used to like it.

    I had heard so much about this restaurant and was looking so forward to dining here but sadly it did not live up to my expectations. The restaurant which was supposed to be quaint was filled with narrow rooms that were hard to pass through. The Air conditioning on such a hot evening was barely working and as far as cleanliness I would give it a 6 out of 10. I felt the need to immediately take my feet off the floor and sit Indian style on my seat. As for the food, the onion soup which I had heard so much about, was just a 6. The cheese was so thick you couldn’t separate it to have a bite with each spoonful of soup. And the soup was overly salted. The Cesar salad was too lemony and my burger, which everyone had raves about was so tall I had to remove most of it to just take an initial bite. Presentation sometimes isn’t everything if you cannot eat it ☹️

    Been eating at this place pretty much since it opened years ago. They do moules and frites about as well as anyone in town. Two other dinner companions had different fish dishes last evening. Both said they were perfectly cooked and quite tasty. I’ve always thought both the wine and beer lists were well done, obviously someone thought about it. I think the fact that we keep coming back says more than anything.
