Et Voila! has been my go-to for reliably nice dinners, but was really off the mark tonight. The French onion soup was bland and underseasoned, the entree selection was disappointingly limited (no duck - no turkey as in the online menu); a cassoulet would have been nice); my moule diables base seemed thrown together, with blobs of garlic paste and sliced shallots sitting unmixed, and the profiterole pate a choux was burned. Service was good, but unsatisfying dinner overall.

Great overall! This restaurant is a little bit more expensive than the ones I usually go to. But service was awesome and food was really good. Love the menu and love the ambience.

Food and service is consistently excellent. So glad we live nearby as Et Voila never disappoints. The Norwegian sole was spectacular on this occasion.

Summation: Starters; Escargot, Cheese Tray, Entrees; Mussels, Trout, Desert; Creme Brûlée. All excellent and priced fairly. Drinks; Bourbon , Beer. I felt a bit on the pricey side.
Casual atmosphere and noisier than I would prefer, but not noise caused by background music with rockband volume, but rather from lots of people enjoying themselves.
Would I go back again? Yes, in a heartbeat the next time I’m in the area!

The curried mussels are outstanding and the fries are perfect. The service is efficient and friendly. But, like many D.C. restaurants, the tables are too close for an intimate conversation. Two tables down, two boisterous couples marred the dining experience for others nearby. Before that, we learned way too much of what the next diner thought of her coworkers. This cannot be helped by the restaurant, of course, but will affect our decision to return. Too bad because the food is very good.

This was our first time at Et Voila since Covid. Although we found the food very good, the service was spotty, at best. We got lots of attention initially but as the evening passed, more people arrived, and our waiter disappeared. They may be suffering from short staffing.

Good steak, salad and french fries. Wine by the glass prices are too high. The lower priced ones are mediocre wines, the good wines are way too expensive. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend but with that caveat.

This is a lovely, cozy little Belgian (French) neighbourhood gem. The food is very good, and I always go there when I am in need of anything 'francais'. Prices are quite high but not obscene and service is sadly often painfully slow - but always friendly.

A consistently excellent neighborhood bistrot in the French/Belgian tradition, Et Voilà always delivers! The foie gras terrine is super, as are the salads, steaks, and seafood. To top it off they serve some of the best French/Belgian fries in the city. And the desserts are great!

Thanksgiving Day Dinner was delicious! The service and cuisine were outstanding. We had a lovely family evening and the opportunity to dine out in a neighborhood gem on a busy holiday was greatly appreciated by my family. The mains were rigatoni Bolognese, filet, mussels and I had the traditional Turkey dinner. My adult kids were impressed with everything. Thank you and kudos to the staff who provided knowledgeable and impeccable service. Thank you.

Wonderful as usual. Our daughter was in town so we decided to go out for a late dinner. She wanted a beer that wasn’t on the menu and without any hesitation the waitress went off to see if she could find it in their store and sure enough they had it. Just an example of how thoughtful they are. Can’t recommend them enough!

Great martinis, excellent wine list, she had the sole...fantastic, I had the duck leg which was amazing. Salad was the goat cheese with greens and lightly dressed. One of my favorite Belgian-French restaurants.
