    Our second visit. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the beef burgundy and I loved the pork chop in cream sauce. The souffle for dessert was out of this world!

    Et Voila has never disappointed. Always interesting new recipes and great combinations of French cuisine. This recent visit was for my birthday and, again, it was all I could hope for. The new menu item of Norwegian sea trout was amazing. I love to try different things each time I'm there and they are always outstanding. I could go to any restaurant in town to celebrate but Et Voila the place that never disappoints.

    If you're looking for excellent preparation of classic French dishes, Et Voila should be your go-to. Their Terrine de Canard (duck foie gras) and Coq au Vin are just two examples of this. The delicious food is coupled with attentive service, served in a pleasant bistro atmosphere where the tables are properly spaced to help minimize conversation noise.

    We had early reservations, which promised a happy hour....not reflected in the bill. We ordered a pate appetizer if duck pate. It was very good, but not enough bread. We had to request more, which they charged us for. Since the pate was already $26, we felt that was over the top. The meal and service were very good, nut we were left feeling unhappy about these two issues.

    The food is excellent here. I've eaten here three or four times and everything I've had has been excellent. The wait staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable. It's quite easy to carry on a conversation. The only issue is parking, as is the issue with many restaurants. I highly recommend Et Voila!

The quality and presentation of the food is first rate as is the service. Unpretentious, this is the place to visit when you're in the mood for something that will make your heart sing.

    Didn't feel "French" ... plastic menus were the first tip off. Waiters wearing jeans and tshirts were the next hint. The wild boar main course was VERY dry, as was the duck confit appetizer. The Pistachio cocktail was uninspiring. Ambiance was dark and lacked character. The Coq au Vin was very good.

    Et Voila was like a trip back to Paris where we have visited well over ten times. The meal was perfection. Classic French. The French Onion soup, Beef Bourguignon, and fresh baguette were the best we have ever had anywhere including Paris and New York City. The bar is fabulous. Wish it was open for lunch and had a location in North County. The only negative is the lack of parking in the area. Plan to arrive early to find a place to park. I have already told friends about Et Voila and we will 100% be returning when we need a French fix.

    We had a Valentine's experience. The food was mostly fine nothing extraordinary, though one course didn't quite hit the mark for me. The ambiance was okay, not as romantic as other French bistros like Bleu Boheme. For example, adding some vases with flowers across restaurants would have been a nice touch. Service was fine, but there was no one pouring water for you. Also you could barely hear music.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Valentine’s dinner. Their food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Don’t be put off if you speak to the French owner over the phone- he’s very sharp and short with answers to your questions. His team of employees are all kind and professional. Keep the owner/chef in the back preparing those delicious dishes.

    My husband and I were there for dinner. First we sat at the bar for Happy Hour. Love the ambience, and the bar tender was super super nice and friendly (hard to find these days). The receptionist was polite, friendly, and accommodating (when we requested to change to a corner seat). Good was AMAZING! It is of a drive for where we live, but sooooo worth it. Everyone worked in that restaurant delivered excellent customer service! We will definitely go back and we’ve introduced this restaurant to couple friends right away! We will be back to try their new menu. I was told that they change their menu every now and then.

    The food was AMAZING! We shared the Beef Bourguignon and the Linguine and both were excellent. I never thought Linguine would be good in a French restaruant, but this was the best I've ever had. It's all about the sauces they create. The servers were also very well trained and attentive, but not so much you felt rushed. We came to celebrate Valentines Day a few days early to beat the crowds and it was an evening we will cherish.

    We went there for dinner for an early Valentines since we were married in Paris, France last July. We were not dissapointed on any aspect of our evening. Starting from the host, to our waitress and specially the food. Every aspect of the evening was absolutely perfect. Look forward to going there again soon.
