Completely enjoyable, already planing a potential return visit
Outstanding as usual. So pleased that they are now open for weekend brunch as well as for dinner. Please support this neighborhood gem.
The best French restaurant in San Diego. Baguettes to die for. Fabulous menu. Hard to choose every time I'm there. Great wine list. I could eat there every night and not get tired or bored.
Thank you Larry !
We've come here several times. The food has been largely very good, but this evening was excellent. There were really well-conceived flavors and visual compositions. Okay, maybe the beet risotto color could have looked a little less like Pepto Bismol, but the flavor was terrific.
Five stars based primarily on flavor.
Thank you Peter!
Lovely dinner as always! A little long of a wait to eat, but it might've been because they were busy. See you next time!
Thank you Lili!
I had the beefsteak and frites. The meat was tender and tasty. The French green beans were seasoned just right and the fries were crisp!
I also had the smoked bourbon cocktail which was amazing.
I love this French bistro, Staff and ambiance.
My husband had the Easter lamb special. There was plenty of lamb and the sauce was excellent, but the lamb was a bit tough. My duck was excellent. The pear tart crust was burnt and tough, and we were offered a different dessert, but we declined, and we were not charged for the dessert. Have had tough pastries here before, which is surprising since the French are known for pastries. French songs in the background would be a nice touch.
Thank you Linda for taking the time to review us!
Fair. I had high hopes as it was my first visit there. Was disappointed that pork chop dish that was a different variation than was on menu online. As I was a first time guest, it would have been nice if the waiter had pointed that out as I didn’t realize until dish was served. She didn’t offer to make it right when I pointed out it was different. I observed them being overly accommodating to next table guests (or I assume their regular customers). Don’t think I’ll return as I’ve experienced better. Sad as I really was excited about trying this place, but elements of experience left me feeling like I was not valued as a customer.
Thank you Bridget for your review. We are sorry for the confusion on the menu. Our website and the menus handed in the restaurant are updated, however 3rd party websites are often out of our control. As I mentioned during our phone call we are lucky to have regular customers that have built relationship with our team over the years. We do value all our customers and always try to make them feel welcome. We are sorry if we failed with you and we invite you back to make it up to you.
We returned to Et Voilà on Easter Sunday for lunch after a long time. I chose the rich Salmon Quiche special after sharing the mussels with my husband. Service was very attentive and quick. It was a nice lunch in overall.
Thank you so much!
We’ve been ordering takeout for some time but this was our first in-person visit. The food, service, and ambiance were incredible! Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves authentic French cuisine.
Thank you Deena for your support during the shutdown and thank you for coming in for dinner! We greatly appreciate it !
We have never been less than very satisfied with our experiences at Et Voila...the food is consistently wonderful, the atmosphere is hospitable and the staff are expert and friendly. Don't miss this fabulous restaurant!
Thank you Yolanda for choosing us for your family and friends gatherings. We appreciate it more than words can express.
Always a great time! Never a disappointment! Can’t wait to go back.
After living in France for 17 years I was thrilled to find Et Voila - the next best thing to having dinner in France!
Thank you so much for your awesome review. We greatly appreciate it.
It was an utterly magical and delicious brunch. Et Voila knocked it out of the park once again!
I went there for my birthday. We waited almost an hour for our food. The server and reservations were aware it was a birthday dinner yet they did nothing to acknowledge it. Most restaurants bring a dessert with a candle. I wouldn't go back.
Went for my birthday and had one of the best dining experiences in such a long time. Servers were very friendly and quick, and I can’t describe the food’s excellent quality in this tiny blurb. If you’re looking for a nice intimate dinner in San Diego, this is the place to come.
Thank you Daniel! We greatly appreciate your review!
Food and service were fantastic, exactly as we remembered it pre-COVID. Barriers between inside tables create an intimate, but not claustrophobic, environment. If you haven't visited Et Voila! since before the pandemic, rest assured it is exactly the way you remember it, and you will love it.
Thank you James!
They have a nice patio area in back. The food is excellent. Parking can be tricky but we lucked out with a street space across the street. Allow extra time for parking. Service was impeccable. An overall wonderful evening.
Thank you so much!
Great food and staff was amazing and engaged with all our needs.
Thank you Tammie! We greatly appreciate it.
We had a very nice dinner experience with them. Scallop, pasta, steak, snails, bread... they all are outstanding.
Thank you so much!
So good. The mussels are delish, as are the salmon and coq au vin. We discovered Et Voila for its great take out during lock-down and returned for a wonderful dinner on their back patio. They've done a great job creating a safe and welcoming outdoor space. The service was impeccable the food was served hot and timing was excellent. I definitely recommend !
Thank you so much!
The food and a service here are outstanding. Is it expensive? Yes, but absolutely worth it.
Excellent food and drinks.
Staff friendly and helpful.
Great place for French food.
Thank you Marilou!
Great for special occasions. Delicious food and cocktails. The salmon was cooked perfectly.
Thank you Izzy!
I always love this place, I always order the same thing and it’s always superb
Thank you Val. We are looking forward to see you again.
Wonderful night out to celebrate my friends’ birthdays. The service was impeccable! The staff was friendly and exceptionally efficient while adhering to all CDC guidelines for dining. All 3 courses were prepared perfectly for my entire party. Excellent wine selection with superior recommendations. Absolutely recommend!
Thank you Stephanie! It is always a pleasure to have you!
Great service. Fabulous food.
Love the food
Great selection of French wine
The rear outside tent is quite nice too
Excellent authentic French cuisine and treated well on my birthday.
Great restaurant. The food was excellent, and I enjoyed the privacy screens for COVID separation. The food and drinks are all excellent.
Everything was fabulous!
I took my son, granddaughter and grandson to dinner at et Voila! because she spent a year in France so I knew she would appreciate good French cooking. We were definitely not disappointed. We all had different entrees; the salmon was outstanding, the duck was outstanding, and the linguine was outstanding. I will definitely return.
Very friendly service, our waitress was very pleasant.
Food is great. I will come back.
Wonderful as always. Consistently awesome
Delicious food and great service! We just moved back from two years in France and it was great to enjoy some authentic, delicious French food.
Thank you Lauren. We are delighted you enjoyed your dinner! We hope to see you soon.
One of the best French restaurants in San Diego. I’m so pleased San Diego is starting to open up so we can enjoy normal dinners at A Voila again.
Thank you Vickie! It's always a pleasure to see you walk through the doors! See you soon.
Thank you so much!
