We had called ahead of time for the crème brûlée to have a candle as it was birthday celebration but we did not get that so that is the only reason why they get a 4 stars. Otherwise fantastic place.

I really like this restaurant and will totally visit again. The food was awesome, some of my favorite are onion soup, mash patato, cream brulee. All of the dishes have high quality.

Appetisers were great. Dover Sole was excellent. Mussels were mediocer. dessert was only fair Service was slow...slow...slow. Server was very pleasant but hard to find. It appears that the restaurant is under staffed at this time.

Food was very good. I liked that they had plexiglass between all the tables. None of the staff was wearing masks; I’m on the fence about that.

Had a lovely time on an early post-pandemic Saturday night out at La Voile. Ordering off their prix fixe menu, the food was very good and the price seemed very reasonable.

They do it right at La Voile. It doesn't get any more authentic. The Soupe Poisson, quiche small plate and Beouf Bourguignon were exceptional. My favorite server, Alejandra, did a great job as always.

Loved our experience and will be coming back. The upstairs was nice and quiet which is exactly what we wanted. The food was just fine - my roasted chicken was a tad bit dry but we had such a good time we didn’t mind. Escargot was excellent and the wait staff were very thorough.

I miss France. So happy I got a mini vacation at La Voile. All my faves. A lot of outdoor seating. Some street traffic ambiance but fun to see the trolleys when you live farther out in the burbs. Food delicious as always and friendly service. Highly recommend!

I would go back without any hesitation. It happened that we ordered a Wine they didn’t have anymore, they offered us another one much better even (more expensive) for the price of the one we initially chose. Go there, they are really friendly and food is excellent!

Wow, so much to say about La Voile, and it’s all good. Great, in fact. Better than great. This was the dining experience I haven’t seen in a very long time. In an era of celebrity chefs and celebrity bartenders, the emphasis in many American restaurants has shifted from pleasing the customer to making the restaurant a show, a place not unlike a theater where you go to see a performance. This has only gotten worse with Covid with so many restauranteurs relishing the 90 minute table limit that only reinforces their view that they only want your money and that we are there fthem and not the other way around. At La Voile, the dynamic is different. As soon as I walked in the door, I was made ti feel welcome. I wasn’t sized up, I didn’t get a glare to tell me I’m a burden as happens at so many restaurants where the host glares at you and forces you to speak first.

Food was delicious. It was well prepared and served promptly. With Covid, we chose to eat outdoors. Table was at safe distance from others and passersby. Sun shine brightly in our eyes — that was a negative.
