    The food and service was very good! The only thing that could have been better is that when we asked if our salad could be split for two in the kitchen they did not say that their would be an additional charge. I also would have been fine with the charge for the split goat cheese salad if it had not been simply cut right down the middle/ cheese and crostina as we would have done it ourselves. I thought the kitchen would have made the presentation better on each plate.

    Eating outside can get a little noisy. Planes overhead and busses zipping by. But we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Beer came in brand glass.

    This was out first visit to Et Voila after driving by too many times, and seeing a packed restaurant, and trying to make reservations too late. It won't be the last. The beer menu is amazing! The food was delicious, and bang for buck it was a great value. The desert special - with banana, chocolate and marshmallow as a popsicle stunned even this chocoholic.

    Chose to sit outside for the first time. It was nice until a delivery truck’s backup beeping started as he tried to back down the alley. Eventually he made it but definitely disturbed a wonderful atmosphere for some 10-15 min. Pulling up then backing up and pulling up and backing up…. Otherwise we had the usual good meal, good drinks and a great dessert.

    Et Voila has been a reliable staple of the Palisades neighborhood for years. However, during my recent visits (2 in the last 2 weeks) I noticed a bit of a deterioration - are they falling victims of their own success? One time billing was incorrect. Bread was stale. Wine glasses were randomly different from each other (thankfully, still clean!). Beats salad - nothing special. The mussels were still excellent, but our server didn't even offer more bread with them... Hopefully, they will get their mojo back.

    This was my first time at Et Voila, and it was brilliant. The staff was very accommodating and helpful, the food delicious, and I loved their coffee! (I can't say that about all restaurants....it's like an afterthought for some of them). I highly recommend it.

    Can’t help it, just love this place. It’s a respite and a great alternative to more DC-centric restaurants and crowds. I knocked a star in value because an espresso was $4.50 … might be standard in DC, but I’m used to paying 1 euro.

    Et Voila has been one of my go-to places for years. But the pandemic and inflation have changed it. The food has always been excellent, still is, and the prices have been not low but reasonable. But the lunch menu is now too brief, too smaller-dinner in style and too heavy--except for salads (see below)--and too expensive. The only "sandwich" is an enormous burger with high-fat add-ons. An entree salad is $18-19, certainly reasonable, but that does not include a protein. To add chicken or salmon, and only fried chicken is offered, brings the price of a salad to the mid-$30's range. Really? For a lunch salad? I am sad to lose a favorite lunch spot but will try it for dinner before giving up entirely.

    The meal was excellent -- salmon tartare followed by trout, spinach, and mashed potatoes. Three of the four dinners selected this combo, and all of us were delighted. Dessert was excellent, too. It was surprising how quiet it was eating outdoor just next to MacArthur Boulevard. Even the appearance of two fire trucks did not unduly disturb our solitude!

    Father’s Day dinner was wonderful. My family enjoyed the regular menu items and the two of the specials: lamb entree and coffee eclair. Restaurant was busy, but service was excellent as usual. Et Voilà is my family’s favorite neighborhood restaurant.

    This definitely a neighborhood gem, we don’t live around the area. My wife and I like to stop and have an early dinner after a show at the Kennedy Center. The menus is simple but the food preparation is phenomenal and delicious! They also gave a decent wine selection.
