- MEMatthewEWashington, D.C. Area •4 reviews5.0Dined on Jan 1, 2023My family and I enjoyed three excellent meals at Et Voila during the 2023/2023 holiday season. We went once for brunch and once for dinner, in both cases ordering from the regular menus. We also went on New Year's Day when there were a number of specials which were excellent. We thought the risotto with black truffles and halibut, the two that we tried, were exceptional. Lots of restaurant have good days and bad days but, over time and during this holiday season, we find Et Voila uniformly excellent, no matter whether we eat inside or out, no matter whether we are there for dinner, lunch, or brunch. I also appreciate how, when things get busy, everyone on the staff pitches in to be sure that diners have a good experience.More infoEt VoilaPrice: Expensive• French• Palisades Northwest•4.8
- NNicoleNew York / Tri-State Area •5 reviews5.0Dined on Jan 1, 2023We were celebrating and hosting friends from out of town and brought them to Founding Farmers for the great food and ambience. It truly exceeded expectations. It was a busy day at the restaurant (new year's day around brunch), but every single staff member we interacted with was so deeply kind and present with us. We had someone with allergies with us and the whole kitchen and pastry team looked out to care for them. Major shoutout to our server Randy (Randi?) and manager Josue who were both spectacular. And, as always, all of the food was out of this world. We will be back and we will recommend to others. Thanks for getting our new year off to a great start!More infoFounding Farmers - DCPrice: Moderate• American• Foggy Bottom•4.4
