We had an excellent meal. We ordered Aux Champignons and Le Risotto, Le Saumon and Le Filet de Boeuf, and Le Fondant au Chocolate. Le Fondant au Chocolate was average, but everything else was delicious and exceeded expectations. The service was also excellent. Overall, would highly recommend.

La Voile is my new favorite restaurant. The service was perfect—attentive and unrushed. The food was exquisitely prepared, especially the fish dishes. It feels like Paris here in Boston. Outstanding.

An outstanding gem of a restaurant, among our favorites in the city. Has the feel of an authentic bistro from the moment you walk in. The staff are attentive, friendly and genuine. Food is traditional bistro fare, prepared with care and perfection. Value for the quality of the food is high. While it does attract a tourist segment being on Newbury, there are a lot of regulars on a Saturday night, which gives the place a rich, warm feel. Will continue to come back again and again.

Classic french/continental. Very busy Saturday night. Escargots and endive salad were both great tenderloin lacked flavor. Wonderful wine list

Another outstanding meal at La Voile. I rarely order chicken when dining out, but decided to have La Volaille - it was fabulous. Service was very attentive as well.

We moved to the Back Bay in the last year and have been wanting to try this place for a while, but something else always came up. Well, we went last night and wow! Great!
Bustling French bistro with great food, great service and really reasonable prices. This is now one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. We will be back, probably many times.

I feel the items I had were good tasting, could have been better. Decor is pleasing, service was good, and prices weren't bad. Would go again to try some different items. Don't think there was music, that would help the ambiance.

The Endive Salad was more a Frisee Salad with Three Leaves of Endive. And the Croque Monsieur was cold - cheese not well melted or crusty like it should be - no color to it as it didn't look like it had been in a broiler. We have enjoyed the restaurant in the past... and will keep an open mind to trying again in the future.

We had an excellent experience here on Christmas. The food is amazing, and the staff is fantastic. (We love that almost everyone seems to be an expat). We appreciated the plexi dividers between close tables.

We had the duck, the sea bass and soups to start. We were stuffed without feeling like the portions were wasteful. We ordered wine by the glass, and our server (a great waitress who hails from Colombia) kindly offered us a couple to sample based on our preferences.

An amazing Christmas Day dinner! Our waitress couldn’t have been more attentive and kind. Genuinely kind. Best waitress we’ve had in many years. And the food was delicious! Best mussels I’ve ever had. Plump and sweet and so fresh. Smoked salmon was the real deal. Not too salty with that lovely, natural fish oil. Perfection. And we are gluten free and they toasted some really wonderful gluten free bread for us. It made for a delicious and memorable Christmas dinner. Thank you so much!

The only issue I had was that I ordered a screw drive as a drink. The drink only filled half of the glass. Very disappointing, I mean at least 8 ozs with ice. Half a glass makes me wonder who was making the drinks

Overall it was good but not great like it has been before. Menu was smaller the price was little higher and the service was not like before. This was our favorite and go to restaurant before but it’s time to look else where .
