La Voile NEVER disappoints. Each time we go we are charmed in different ways from before. It goes without saying that every morsel of food you order and taste will delight. The wine list is excellent, and Alex will help you every time. Service is flawless and is friendly and kind! I order something different every time, but I do have my favorites. We will always start with the duo of foie gras (seared and terrine), which come with splendid accompaniments. Then to a salade (if I am not having the soupe l'oignon, which is outstanding). For entrees, the dover sole, the saumon, the magret duck breast, the roast chicken carved tableside (30-minutes prep time) are each delicious in their own way. (I have to say that the tableside carving of the perfectly, succulently roasted chicken is a real treat.) For dessert, DO NOT miss the Ile Flotantte. It is sublime. We love La Voile, end of story. Go see for yourself--you will never be disappointed!

Very authentic French food. Superb French pinion soup. French severe to make the experience special. Friendly people. Plexi between tables to feel safe. Highly recommend.

Meal and service were excellent. The only surprising note was the Napoleon which was not traditional. More cake-like than usual. Nevertheless I highly recommend this restaurant.

We’ve been frequent visitors to La Voile for many years.

Last night, our visit was spoiled by an elderly gentleman who is apparently, a part owner of the restaurant.
He seemed oblivious to measures put in place to keep everyone safe, standing at the bar right next to my seat. Once he found a seat at the bar, he blocked me in making it very difficult to move my chair back. I struggled to reach my belongings, especially my mask while I was trying to visit the bathroom. He made catty remarks about the size of my bag, a regular ladies bag and, where I had placed it, next to the wall down the side of my seat! Not sure where else I could have put it?!
He was arrogant and sarcastic. This gentleman needs to remember that for his restaurant to be successful, he does need to be respectful of his guests.

Nice place but regret ordering the duck (breast), it was rather chewy, I could not finish it, not what you would expect from a restaurant at this price point.

I made a reservation and there was only outdoor seating available then. The weather became unexpectedly worse and so we arrived early to work with the restaurant manager to find indoor seating. The manager was very gracious and understanding- she diligently worked to create an indoor dining opportunity for us. She is awesome!!! The meal and service were wonderful. Thank you very much for making our evening magical!!

La Voile, as usual, amazing. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. We shared the Escargots and it was the best we ever had outside of Paris. We will go back, just a remarkable little gem..

The lunch was for my birthday today. I have never been to LaVoile and I am so glad I chose this restaurant. The service was excellent and the luncheon entree I chose was the roasted beets and spinach mushroom risotto were outstanding. My guest and I plan to go back to have the liver pate and Belgium beer to start.

Jerome and Alex always make it a pleasure to dine at La Voile. They provide true French authenticity and a very pleasant manner. The food is delicious; we enjoyed paté, onion soup, duck confit and veal blanquette. The wine list is extensive. Delicious fondant au chocolat.

A special bonus: dining outdoors under the new sturdy canopies that have been constructed.

The venue is lovely; evokes old world France. The server had trouble understanding us (he was NOT French). We tried 3 times to order a specific bottle of wine and he just couldn’t get it right, until he did. Same with ordering food. I ordered the veal shoulder and he went on to explain several other dishes. Nonetheless, food was very good and a great value for fine French dining.

Celebrated a birthday here on a busy Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was crowded but we were promptly seated and attended to. The waitstaff was attentive without be obtrusive. The food was fantastic, we even saved room for desert which tasted as scrumptious as it looked! We will be back, even without a birthday to celebrate!!

My wife and I would recommend this restaurant. The food and service was great once we were recognized. We were innitially seated in a very cramped, plexiglassed off small table . This was not acceptable to us and we were able to get a table in a more open space. After this glitch, the rest off the night from service to food was very good. We were, given the restrictions restaurants are hamstrung with,very satisfied with our dining experience.
