We have eaten both inside and out on the patio and enjoyed both. We had such a spectacular meal the first time we returned within a month. The foie gras is amazing as are the beef dishes and trout. Desserts sublime, wonderful wine list. We will be back and highly recommend it.

We sat outside and had a lovely lunch. The food at LaVoile was excellent, as always. Service was terrific. It is always my first choice when I think about going out to eat in the Back Bay.

We were seated inside where it has been carefully rearranged to allow distancing but not loose its coziness. La Voile is classic French food and is always reliable and delicious The service was friendly and graceful and the plates were presented beautifully . We also enjoyed choosing from their exceptional wine list with the expert aide of Alexandre. Thank you for an experience that put a smile on my face.

We usually really enjoy this restaurant- the food, service, ambiance. This evening it was my birthday dinner. We had our family including our 1 year old granddaughter. The service was extremely slow. We had to get up to get a waiter for drinks and to order. Then the food came out slowly. My sole was not as good as usual and it was swimming in butter and salt. Usually there is a little sauce not a bowl of it. I brought it to the attention of the maitre d and he brushed it off. I wanted a special dinner. It was not.

Classic French with a seafaring motif, La Voile provided Intimate and friendly service. Contactless menu and following public health protocols. Food order arrived quickly and plated hot from the pan. Pan seared filet with four gras on a carrot purée with green peas was amazing. Pan seared salmon with charon sauce done to perfection. Wine list is interesting though a little pricey even by restaurant markup standards. Many dessert selections made on premises. Would definitely go back.

We always enjoy dinner out at La Voile, the restaurant was a bit too overwhelmed last night as it took over 15 minutes for anyone to come take our order (has to ask 3 times for a waiter)...then my husband has to pour our first glass of wine. Love to see the restaurant doing so well but you may want to hire more wait staff.

We always enjoy our meals at La Voile and this was not exception. We sat outside on the patio and were a bit disappointed the tables were bare - I guess a concession to Covid. The food and the waitstaff were great!

LaVoile is my favorite restaurant in the Back Bay, and eating outside in this great summer weather makes it even better. The food is excellent, the service is perfect and the ambiance is excellent, whether you are looking for lunch or dinner. We have been here with friends for a leisurely meal, for a celebration dinner and also for business lunch meetings. It is always my first choice!

Excellent service! Waitress was very helpful during the wine bottle selection since there are so many to choose from! The foie gras was delicious along with the trout and creme brûlée for dessert. We also decided to go with a cheese plate which paired well with a glass of port. Our go-to restaurant when we are in the area. Also love the set-up of the outdoor dining especially during these crazy times!

La Voile is great for celebrating a memorable event. The menu options are good. Although a particular dish was not available, I found tasty substitutions - creme brulee, foie gras, and les moules. I enjoyed them in that order. Why not? Have your dessert first! The wine list is very good. But do get champagne instead. Another treat.

The ambience was classically French with iconic black and white photos on the walls, stencils of wine grapes, long-neck glass bottles for tap water, and unforgettable music. They played a favourite, Michel Sardou. Oh my! I've only felt this potent allure of France the last time I was in Provence. No scent of lavender. Perhaps it would have been much.

Service could have been better. I had a very young waiter, pleasant but a little inexperienced.

Overall, La Voile made for a delightful evening out to indulge only as my French self can. I have dined at La Voile before. I'll go again. Soon.

We had a very enjoyable meal with excellent service. My husband had the steak and I had the duck breast. The sauce on the duck breast was outstanding as was the peppercorn sauce on the steak. We shared an excellent creme brûlée. I would certainly return again
