    Food was just ok. The Red Curry mussels didn’t taste like red curry but rather a sweet, overwhelmingly watery peanut flavor. The trout had way too much sauce that it overpowered the dish, the crepe was dry and crunchy (even the ice cream didn’t save it). The soft merengue dessert was deliciously craveworthy. The hanger steak was cooked well, and had good flavor. The fries were excellent. So some hits and some misses. The service was good and the kitchen was accommodating, which was great!

    This is my favorite restaurant in DC! It’s cozy, charming, warm and reminds me of a cafe in Europe. The service is great. The food is always delicious. Mussels - you must soak up all the yummy sauce in the pot with the amazing bread or fries. Wine list is superb. Desserts are outstanding. Try the specials - they will not disappoint. Carbonnade (beef stew) melts in your mouth! Last night, I forgot my reading glasses and Voila! The hostess hurried to find some for me. That made my evening much more enjoyable. Thank you. Go to Et Voila as soon as you can!

    A great experience, as always, for two equally important reasons. First, owner-chef Claudio’s amazing and reasonably priced Franco-Belgian cuisine. Second, the always thoughtful and cheerful service from Aleks and her partner, Dusan who are our favorite restaurant professionals. My wife had her favorite endive salad and salmon while I had the onion soup and veal special. Delightful. Both of them also know wines well and we rely on them for recommendations. It’s no surprise that the restaurant is always packed. We were lucky to get a last minute reservation but then it was at 5.15.

    Eat Voila never disappoints. The food and service are wonderful and they never rush you out. The tables are close together and the sound level is rather high, but that doesn’t detract from the overall experience.

    Wow! We hadn’t been to Et Voila in probably 6-7 years, and we’ll return much sooner. Food was wonderful. Service very efficient, friendly. We have no complaints at all. They do an amazing job with escargot, mussels, broiled/baked fish and they make their own ice cream, too!

    The crew really knows how to make you feel at home. Special ways they want to fix a Manhattan is too much. Can we try a rye or another bourbon tonight? The Whistlepig Manhattan they fix is great! The white bean soup was like the best comfort food on the planet. The new recipe for the Branzino was the perfect meal.

    Our meals at EtVoila were disappointing. The mussels I had were rather tough and the sauce on my husband’s pasta was not that flavorful. Other than that, the Belgian endive salad was delicious and our desserts were very good.

    Another outstanding service by this fabulous team. All cylinders are certainly firing in the kitchen and the staff is back in full swing as if the pandemic had never happened. If you want a warm greeting at the front door, quick service at your table, delicious and nutritious foods plus the fresh pomme frits, paired with amazing wines selected by their general manager Sylvain, and finished off with an awesome profiterole dessert, then this is your place!!

    EXcellent choices for seafood especially. My companion and I both enjoyed the fresh mussels and I had a first course of the pate (made on the premises and also excellent.) Our sharred desert was perfect little puffs with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. The restaurant was crowded on this busy Saturday night but the very professional wait staff pulled off wonderful meals for all of the happy patrons.

    The chestnut soup was SOO DELICIOUS! Loved the mussels, fries and amazing beef stew; They were 20 minutes late seating us for an 8:15 reservation and were out of 3 of that night’s specials by the time we ordered. They must still be adjusting to the needs of a very busy restaurant! Would definitely go back!
