Seems like et voila is more of a neighborhood space. Not much of a selection so I’d consider it more Belgian than French. Not much of a choice with dessert but the profiteroles were nice. Not enough of a reason to drive all the way there. Good service and wine list hence the three stars

It is such a warm and inviting place - with great staff, food, wine choices (by the glass and bottle), and it just never disappoints.

Very nice beer and wine offerings.
I ordered the warm goat cheese salad.( $11.50 )-Small 2 ounce round of warm goat cheese with some mixed spring greens like you buy at Costco or Safeway. Ehh. Okay-My bad choice.
I ordered Beef Tartar ($28.95). The description on the menu reads "Angus beef mixer with Shallots, Chives, Capers, Tabasco, Worchester eaten Steak Tartar and never ever seen or heard of tartar sauce
(Abundant Mayo) being involved.
I also ordered Moules Mariniere. Plump, fresh juicy Mussels cooked well -served with really strong, bitter nasty, stinky Onions. Wine, Leeks and Garlic ($23.50)

Dessert was Home made Dark Chocolate & Praline Ice Cream-Chocolate Carmel Sauce-Milk Chocolate Whipped Cream-Crunchy Hazelnuts.
It was generous and fabulous. Perfect Double Espresso.
I guess I didn't order the right stuff on the right day.

The food was excellent. I started with the beet salad, which was a very generous portion and delicious. The beef in the bifsteak with French fries was stronger than I expected, though. My friend's trout was delicious and ample. We enjoyed the first cake on the dessert menu. The restaurant is an excellent value. Can't wait to go back!

We had a very nice dinner. My husband and son enjoyed sole meunière and I had the branzino. Branzino is always on the menu, but the restaurant prepares it differently throughout the year. Last night the branzino had a red wine sauce. I enjoyed the mushroom soup - special on the menu. Et Voilà is our favorite neighborhood restaurant.

As always the food is outstanding Belgian fare for Sunday brunch- we had the egg sandwich, the Et Voila burger and salmon benedict...all superb. Service continues to be top notch, lots of attention through meal, with beverage refills (coffee/water) taken care of before we knew we were low. Always a gem of a place to treat ourselves!

Have dined there many times and elected to try the Et Voila burgers for a mid-week dinner...the best burger I ever tasted, served with French fries and salad. She had yellow tuna tartare as appetizer and I the mushroom soup. Cocktail before and wine during. Truly another sensational dining experience at Et Voila.

IF you want to have really good dining that will take you back to Europe, sitting in a small cafe that you love - then you will love this. We brought my niece who is with Michelin and it was clear that she enjoyed the food and check to see if Et Voila was in the DC guide/Bib Gourmet...well it wasn't and it should be - that's for sure.
I would be lovely to have something else to look at other than a brown wall...maybe a lower mirror. But all in all it is a great place to have a special meal.

Perfect Christmas Day lunch! I got the Flemish Beef Stew, with Brussel Sprouts, and the server recommended an excellent IPA to go with it - absolutely delicious! My friend got the steak frites which were done to perfection and a glass of wine. The fries were amazing! Steamy, warm French Bread and a nice pat of butter were set on our table, and our water glasses were never empty. I look forward to going back again soon!
