La Voile was a pretty disappointing experience. The service was disinterested and the food was decent, at best. Both of my dishes lacked flavor: the broth for the mussels seemed watery (the carrots had more flavor than the broth) and the seafood risotto was very one note (plus it lacked any salt). I would recommend going somewhere else.
Had the duck-medium rare, whole sea bass, black bass and a couple appetizers.
My favorite dish was the black bass, good presentation and delicious food itself.
Every bite was delicious and the service was very attentive.
Amazing food! The duck breast was so delicious. Foie gras is a must-try as well.
this is my third or 4th time dining at La Voile. they are very receptive and pleasant to deal with. You do feel as if you might be in a European restaurant at this restaurant.
Other times that I have been here have not been as noisy as it was on a Saturday. their Sancerre white wine was delicious and the risotto of the day was perfect.
I would not hesitate to dine here again.
Wonderful menu, delicious food, excellent service. My only complaint would be that the tables are very close together and the party next to us was very loud and we felt like we were dining with them.
Great food and fun experience
We've tried both locations (Back Bay and Brookline). The menu is the same, and expertly executed in both. The Brookline location is a bit quieter, but doesn't have the same Newbury Street charm. There is cafe dining at street level, which will be awesome in the summer months. We'll definitely be back.
La Voile never fails to please. It is a trip to France, in all the best of ways.
Fantastic food, amazing wine list, very responsive wait staff. 4 people, $400 and worth every dime.
As an experienced French gastronomic semi expert....it left much to be desired on my end. Slightly rushed. Food was not worth the exorbitant prices. They did not even know the tru Soup of France which is vichyssoise. All in all a $200 dinner with a real worth of $100. They are resting on their laurels. So sorry to go to what used to be great
Excellent food and excellent service.
Jerome is always attentive, takes excellent care of his customers.
Staff are always wonderful, cheerful. They know the menu quite well and always happy to make suggestions
The staff was excellent--the food was amazing--our brunch lasted 4 hours--we talked and ate at a VERY casual pace as you might in France--this place is wonderful.
Tables were a bit close together, but it added to the atmosphere--you will feel like you are in France... or New York, but not Boston... sorry, Boston.
I love French food and La Voile does not disappoint. Everything is genuinely French and for the most part more than meets expectations. Highly recommend the duck, as the restaurant has absolutely mastered the dish - even if you don't like duck, you will like the duck. There steak seems to be on the menu to appease people who don't know French food and is, unfortunately, the only think on the menu that isn't absolutely wonderful.
Great place, especially if you are looking for a palate experience.
Perfect meal! Lovely waiters, poured some extra wine! Great panini and mussels. Couldn't have been better. First time, will definitely return.
Wonderful service on a beautiful day at an outdoor table. Best outside cafe on the street.
As always, this is a great restaurant; the food is awesome and the service is outstanding with a very friendly staff!
There steak I had was a bit fatty and chewy. Outside of the steak the rest of the food was good.
This was a great experience - will recommend in the future
Good french restaurant ,pate de Flix gras is excellent .Dover sole was good/excellent .prefer profiteroles with ice cream in the middle
Dined 5/6 at 5:00. Attentive, professional server Anthony. After enjoying an expertly prepared Manhattan, we had the smoked salmon app, beet and citrus salad, duck Magret, steak frites, profiteroles and creme brûlée. All were delicious, along with the wine. Very quiet, great atmosphere, highly recommend, especially at an earlier dinner hour.
This is my favorite French restaurant in Boston. The food is authentic--flavorful without being fussy or over-priced. The servers are all, or mostly, French which adds to the ambiance. The setting is comfortable and cozy. La Voile is always a hit with me and my guests.
We went with a group of 5 friends. All meals were excellent and the service was outstanding. Our waiter could not have been more accommodating and friendly.Cocktails and wine were excellent as well.
La Voile delivers every time. Gracious service and very traditional cuisine. The lunch prix fixe is unbeatable. The terrasse this time on an early spring day was perfect.
Very good fish dishes. The black bass and whole sea bass were excellent. The rib-eye was little bit fatty.
We eat at La Voile often and have never been disappointed. The food is very good, the wine selection is excellent, and the service is exceptionally good. Recommend it highly.
correct rif on classic french cusine. excellent service.
We had a delicious meal and enjoyed a lively conversation on the outdoor patio on a warm spring day.
Waited over 2 hours to get our meals. Disappointing service
Excellent service and the blanquette was excellent as always as well.
Loved their food, our waiters were superb, but such a disrespectful attitude coming from the receptionist there and we got out table more than half an hour later.
Awesome experience! Whilst we had to wait for our table the maitre d'hote Alex took care of us in an exquisite way. He offered us two glasses of champagne and took care of our drink selection making us discover new, uncommon wines. I would recommend this restaurant (and Alex) anytime!
2nd time here. Great food. The duck is exceptional!! Save room for desserts too.
If you enjoy authentic French Bistro food and ambience, you cannot go wrong with La Voile; the staff is professional and attentive without being intrusive (and frequently French). It is a lovely place to relax and enjoy with friends/family, especially the outdoor seating (when weather permits).
Cozy and relaxed bistro with warm ambiance, nice bar area and multiple dining rooms. Initial service a bit too relaxed though attentiveness improved as evening progressed. Recommend the pre fixe menu as it presents a nice variety of selections. The foie gras, mussels, duck and creme brûlée were all quite good. A very positive first visit which will be followed by a second soon!
Fine food; attentive wait staff. Narrow, short steps to enter/exit; not certain how wheel chair would enter easily. Nice find for those on vacation (like us).
Never disappointed! Love this place!
La Voile always hits the spot. The chicken for two is my favorite and it is big enough for four. The service is authentic and lots of excellent wine choices. Sitting outside if weather permits is not to be missed but I find it super cozy and comfy inside.
They really do a great job with service and the food is amazing. Thorough wine list too.
