The duck confit we ordered was late and half-cold. Everything else was fine.
The atmosphere was genuinely Parisian and we were seated promptly. The service from both our waiter and the overall team was excellent. We never had to touch our wine bottle which is a good marker for attentiveness. The menu options, wine list and quality of cuisine was superb. My spouse thoroughly enjoyed her lobster/scallops, while I was impressed by the flavor of my ribeye. Escargot, F.onion soup, flourless chocolate cake were all excellent.
Great spot for lunch -- makes you feel like you've stepped into a Parisian bistro.
The food is superb. It was a busy night (even though it was Wednesday), and so the service was a little slow. Very friendly staff. It is noisy and the tables are close together, however. I wear dual hearing aids and had a difficult time understanding what my two dining patrons were saying. Still love the place! We live one block away.
When we visit Boston always try to dine.
The cuisine is truly French. The ambiance is quite French, though with some terrific, but not French speaking, staff. Wine selection is also excellent. A bit pricey.
Service was excellent and the food is reliably well-prepared and delicious.
No good options for vegetarians. This is not a small problem. I would not recommend to group that have vegetarians.
In our group the vegetarian ended up with side dishes only. It would not be hard to have one option for a common issue.
My food was fine, I had the steak frites -- the steak was over cooked (asked for med rare, got well done) but the fried potatoes were fantastic, good enough to make up for the steak. I enjoyed the meal.
Dessert (mousse) was good but not superlative.
I highly recommend La Voile in Boston and in Brookline, and will continue to do so. Terrific food and all the fish dishes are superb. The atmosphere in both restaurants os very cozy and friendly.
La Voile in back bay is great. I have been eating there for years. But service was off on Saturday night. We were seated in their back/side room and maybe that was why. Our waitress was not attentive and she would run away from our table so quickly that we physically had to walk over and find her if we needed something. We asked for water, and we wanted a glass of ice. We asked for water but before we could get the ice request out of our mouth, she was gone. This happened all evening.
The food was superb!
For a well reviewed restaurant the experience was particularly underwhelming. The appetizers were good but flavorless, foie de gras and escargot. The main courses were below par, steak au frites (cut of meat was thin and poor quality, mostly fat and gristle). The duck confit was seriously over cooked, with a thick nearly impenetrable glazed skin.
Will not return. Definitely not recommend to anyone.
Good food in general. Sole was kind of boring. For $37.00, it was a couple of small pieces of sole, no sauce, just boring. Cheese latter also skimpy. Most everything else was pretty good.
We had a delicious dinner at La Voile. The food is excellent. One feels like they are in France. We will certainly return. My only complaint, was it was very loud so next time, I would select a different table perhaps.
Very good traditional French cuisine. Highly recommended.
The flavors and freshness of the food is always there. Wine list is very good quality and diverse.
my second visit. My cousin is a huge fan of french cuisine, definitely brought her to La Voile!
Great Old Fashioned French restaurant for a special occasion with your wife or fiance. Great food, excellent service! a splendid intimate restaurant.
Great French food. Great dining experience
Great European feel. Server was very helpful. Food was great too.
The food and service were great. Based on our research and reviews we were hoping for somewhere a little quieter so that we could talk. Although we had a corner table the ambient noise was still quite high.
We enjoy dining at La Voile and will certainly be back but...steak was not so good and service seemed harried — maybe short staffed?
My favorite place in Boston! The fish soup is outstanding and paired with a glass of rosé is a perfect combo.
it was a nice eve but something made me upset was the wine. Several wines I saw online were not available.
Our dinners were outstanding. The waiter was very charming & gave us great wine recommendations. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We would definitely dine there again.
Superb food, attentive, professional service, and excellent wine list.
Something is missing. Food was good... escargot neededmore seasoning. Dover Sole was the highlight. Child crawling around a parents feet and crying was distracting and inappropriate for this setting... Other issues were happening around our group. Would not return.
La Voile just keeps delivering delicious meals, unhurried ambience and over pleasing experiences. Bravo!
La Voile never disappoints. The escargots are superb and the "La Duo" dish with lobster and scallops was out of this world! The mushroom bisque was terrific, and the ribeye was delicious and perfectly prepared. It is close quarters, which is to be expected at a French bistro. The service for our Easter lunch was good, but not as good as usual.
Every time we are in Boston, we make sure to stop by La Voile. One of my guests had food allergies, but they were able to ensure that his meal would be safe. He had the ribeye and said it was the best steak he has ever had. My favorite is always the foie gras. It melts in your mouth.
First time to this intimate restaurant. Definitely feels French in the decor and food. Service was attentive and food reasonable. Fixed price menu offered best value for money. Outside seating was available but just a tad chilly. Bar area looked inviting if you don’t have a reservation.
I have been going to this restaurant for 6 years. Without fail, they always come through! The food is incredible and if you want a place that won't try to shoo you away from your table, it's the best in Boston
Best French restaurant in BOS!! Like it so much!!
Lovely food, wine and service...dining neighbors on one side were loud; on the other side were delightful!
Beware of waitress (french accent, short dark page boy hairstyle), she is very nasty! For no apparent reason! Thankfully our group was in good spirits and we were later given another waiter.
Excellent food and service, and the atmosphere lovely and not that loud, which is also lovely.
The most authentic French restaurant in Boston. Classic bistro menu served in a warm and welcoming ambience.
The food was pretty good, though steak wasnt as good as expected. Where we were seated it kept smelling bad smells and the walls were visibly worn down
Very attentive and helpful staff
Very good wine list
