Escargot were to die for, salmon and the duck plates were great. Good wine, great server. Chocolate mousse was a bit sweet. Could stand it to be much darker chocolate but that is just personal taste.
Highly recommend!

We went to La Voile to celebrate a birthday. The service was so slow that we had to leave before dessert (so no birthday cake). The food was very good. But considering the price and the poor service, it is not worth it.

Very good food and attentive staff. We requested an outside table near the street, which has a bit of a Paris street cafe feel.

Our third visit. Food is excellent, venue is quiet and no urgency and the service is top notch. This has become one of our favorite places to go for good conversation!

This was the best French food we had in a while. Everything was cooked correctly and just as described in the menu. The service was unobtrusive and nearly perfect.

The beet salad was very good. The escargot was a little salty, but still enjoyable. The duck confit is recommended. Very good experience.

Good food and excellent service. The only thing I want to mention is the salad come with the main dish is not fresh. Actually some is turning bad. That is why I give 4 stars.

Sat outside on a charming evening. Unfortunately, the table was tilted and a little unstable, leading to one of us getting their iPhone broken as it slipped from the tabletop. Service was attentive and caring. The appetizers were delicious. The wine and cocktails were nice. All of us took the Dover Sole -- delicious! The forgettable dessert was the only weak spot in the meal. Overall, an enjoyable evening.

I was concerned about dining outside but they were very accommodating and gave us a table inside. Enjoyed the specialty cocktail and cidré. The double Foie Gras and smoked salmon were delicious. Everyone loved their entrees including lamb, duck confit and beef. All cooked perfectly to our taste (rare). A fine Wine and shared dessert and we were delightfully stuffed. Mercí

When you go to a restaurant that is less than a 15-minute walk away and ask yourself “why don’t we come here more often” that’s usually a good sign.

Somehow, in a lovely summer evening, this turned out to be just what we wanted. Excellent food and service, welcoming and helpful staff, we felt lucky.

Perfect except: outdoor seating in Washington Square is always going to be noisy. Lots of Friday commute frustrations being expressed by those driving down Beacon Street. And, honestly, a good value but not sure we could do it every time we might want.

Still: it’s been too long, and this goes to the top of the list for now!

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.
