La Voile Ratings and Reviews
5 stars for the food, service and ambiance. Two stars (at most) for the desserts. Either the pastry chef was on vacation or they need to get a new one. The duck, mussels and rib eye were excellent as was the risotto and smoked salmon. The moulton chocolate cake which the waiter highly recommended was like a very dry cupcake and had no sign of anything “moulton”. The creme brûlée was runny although my son did like the apple tart. Overall a fantastic restaurant, just skip the dessert.
As always, La Voile was a treat. Great food and wine from start to finish. However, I have the same complaint for La Voile that I do for many other restaurants. The tables are jammed in too close. When you have to move the table completely out to have enough room to "slide" by, the tables are too close. As the fellow at the table beside us said, "Thanks for having us for dinner" as he struggled by. Would be an enthusiastic five star review, rather than an enthusiastic four star review, if not for the closeness of the tables.
We go to La Voile as often as possible, but especially for special occasions. The food is wonderful, the best Dover sole around, and there is an excellent wine list. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, making you feel welcome from the moment you enter the restaurant.
Wonderful restaurant; I had the scallops which were amazing; my date had the mussels which were more amazing. The service was excellent, the wine that was recommended was perfect and the price was reasonable. Compared to the "Named High Profile" restaurants in Boston I think the service was better, the ambiance was better and the price was a fraction of what the other restaurants charge owned by named chefs. Better service, better ambiance, food as good if not better; what's not to like? I'm going back tonight actually.
We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday, as this was to be a romantic, french specialty restaurant for such a festive occasion. Definitely traditional authentic french cuisine with dates historical decor and cozy atmosphere, limited space, cafe style, within inches of the next table making it difficult to have a conversation with noise level. Drinks took long to arrive, appetizer came beforehand, and when we asked server he said the bar was backed up... Servers were nice. Food was delicious and plentiful, but presentation was not as noteworthy. Champagne was ordered to have with dessert, but forgotten. May return for lunch this summer to their outdoor cafe.
Authentic French service, décor and dining. Food was fantastic. My rack of lamb was cooked perfectly, and the escargot one of the best I have ever tried inside of the United States. My wife had the rib eye and my daughter had the sliced steak, all wonderfully seasoned and melted in your mouth. They served truffled mash potatoes which was to die for, but my daughter is allergic to truffles (too bad :( ) so they remade it plain -- and it was great as well.
Must make reservations for dinner as it often gets crowded.
I was disappointed in my most recent visit to La Voile (3rd time). I sent the Manhattan back because it was undrinkable. However the Foie Gras was excellent as was the duck, Le Magret. But the desserts were dreadful. My crime brûlée was cold and tasteless. Seemed it had been sitting in the refrigerator for quite some time and my daughter's chocolate cake was stale. Overall, it was a disappointing evening because we were there for a special occasion.
We have eaten here five times and the food, french ambiance and friendly service are consistently outstanding. The dishes are traditionally french with all the expected tastes and flare.
I want to make a specific comment about the wait staff. They truely make the leap from an excellent experience to “wonderful “. On this last visit it was Antoine who made the evening!
Go down the steps and into this Paris Bistro and enjoy the bustling dining room with French music playing softly in the background. The waiters are not rude as you may initially suspect, they are there to take care of you and that's it. Professional polished seamless service that you may find in Paris as well.
the food was amazing I had the Steak Frites and my date had the Scallops and risotto both excellent so we shared and made surf and turf. We started with a fresh baguette of course and a wonderful salad with almost ripe pears the only faux pau in an otherwise perfect dinner.
La Voile truly takes you back to France. From the French waiters, to the authentic menu, to the furnishings of the restaurant, it all pays homage to French dinning. After being seated, not unlike in France, the wait staff may take a little while to ask if there is anything one would like to drink etc. but from there it is a superb experience. The food and wine made for a lovely evening dinner. We even returned two nights later to have drinks at the bar. Just a great place.
Consistently delightful, visit after visit. Always welcoming. Great cocktails. Escargots and onion soup gratinee, then beef and veal blanquette. Delicious chocolate dessert and rare cognac to enjoy at meal’s end. Cozy, special, French ambience. I can’t think of a single thing that I would change.
My wife and I loved this restaurant. It's intimate and has a European feeling - you could easily imagine being in a small place off the Champs-Élysées. The tables are very close together, but they do a nice job seating their patrons with open tables between them so you don't really notice. We both agreed we will definitely return to try more dishes. We had the prix fixe option, and the food was outstanding. The butternut truffle soup was delicious, and we both had the venison which was prepared perfectly, complemented by a creamy squash and chanterelles. Service was excellent, very attentive, and they made us feel special. The wine list is extensive and on the expensive side, but if you know your French wines you can find affordable alternatives from lesser-known regions like Languedoc-Roussillon as well as the new world.
