    The onion soup gratinee was the best I have ever had. The scallops St. Jacques was not St Jacques. It was more of a Provençal sauce which overwhelmed the scallops’ flavor. The Dover Sole Meunière was excellent. The chocolate mousse was especially rich and one of the best I have had. The crème brûlée was just okay.

    Excellent service and the food was delicious. We sat outside on a lovely evening which was very pleasant even though we were right on Beacon Street. We had mussels, scallops, escargot and buratta salad and everything was prepared perfectly and presented beautifully. We’ll be back soon

    We came here to celebrate our anniversary and we arrived early on a Wednesday night so we were able to get a table outside. Cute little place, delicious food and great service. The appetizers and Entrees were delicious and the bread and butter too. Loved the butter.

    I go early because noise level can be high. I love this restaurant. The food is fabulous, the service outstanding, the ambience relaxing. It is now the first place I think to bring people from outside the Boston area.

    My wife and I always enjoy La Voile. The food is excellent (I had the salmon and my wife the duck confit), the service is also excellent and the prices are reasonable. You should know that the restaurant has also installed large sheets of plexiglass (or maybe real glass) between the tables that are close to each other. This does not detract from the ambiance and does make the diners feel more comfortable while dining. We definitely recommend La Voile.

    My very good friend took me to La Voile for my birthday. As always the food was excellent. While the reservation was initially made for outside seating we were able to be accommodated inside where it was cooler and quieter. I ordered regular coffee with dessert, however the cream had turned. While the server took the coffee away to replace it with a fresh cup, the same cup of coffee was returned with the same cream stirred into it. We weren’t charged for the coffee but the incident seemed odd and definitely not up to usual La Voile standards.

    Service was poor. One waiter for the whole restaurant. Forgot to ask if I wanted a drink. Beet salad was embarrassing. Beets tasted like they were from a can. String beans cold and tasteless. Sprinkle goat cheese and sweetened pecans and voila! My husbands duck was tough and difficult to cut. Will not return

    We booked this place for Mother’s Day dinner. We were a table of three. Once you walk in the restaurant is small but gives you that homie feel. We were seated at this very small round table it felt like it sat two rather than three. Yes, I understand this is a small restaurant. But, every-time a dish came out we would have to move plates, bread basket, drinks, ETC. When our entree came out our appetizer plates, bread

    A much better experience than my first visit to the original location when the service was snarky and the food was just okay. The service was very good--attentive but not overbearing or hovering. The food was also very good, with all members of my party enjoying their selections quite a bit. Portions are reasonable and the ambiance was quite nice. It was a rainy Monday, so there were not many people out. La Voile has redeemed itself after a rocky start; I would visit again.

    Service was good, but the Groupon menu selection was disappointing. The main course had appetizer selections. I felt I ate two appetizers. The link didn’t work, so I could not see the menu beforehand. If I would have seen it, I would not go.

    Supposedly high rated French restaurant flops, no joke … We came for prefix dinner and were unpleasantly surprised Most entrees/plates poorly ‘dressed’, salmon’s main course a pile of lox (more appropriate in Jewish deli w/bagel, ‘n scallions, n’ capers). If you like your Mussels with bland boiled carrots and onions broth, this one’s for you, pardone, not for my wife nor I. ‘Marinaire sauce badly misrepresents its name Very disappointed we sent both back, got to split a sizable lamb chops/mash potatoes/oyster mushrooms entre It arrived after 10 pm, 90 minutes after our arrival, we took it home and cooked to better taste next day Salads were averaged at best Deserts ok, not a great wide choice Young staff, except for ponytailed fellow, who saved the embarrassments, in 1st floor, were slow, or rather disorganized, considering the small place, brought wrong drinks twice and wrong check 3 times 😂, but were nice and pleasant and not standing around. It a tradition of many 2nd rate barmen, 2nd round of drinks were decidedly weaker. No fine china here (Savers variety), plates mismatched. Overall this restaurant has a pleasant ambiance, well furnished, comfortable chairs, sizable tables, perimeter ones glass partitioned, but we will not return, and bid This Chef adeau, on 4/1/22 … and that is Not an April Fool Day joke !

    Would not go back. Service was extraordinarily slow. No one checked on us for most of the meal. When our food arrived, both of our meals were hit in the center and lukewarm on the outside (part of my bourguignon sauce even looked congealed). To me, that means that the entrees were sitting for a long time before taken out to us. I have no plans to ever go back.

    On a blustery, chilly night, the simple, intimate dining room at La Voile was warm and inviting. The service was attentive, the cocktails smooth, the wine prices a great value. We came to celebrate our grandson's twenty-first birthday. He and we found everything memorable.
