From the Michelin Guide:
"Yes, it's located in a strip-mall, but this Latin-American spot doesn't hesitate to pile on the glitz and glam: crystal chandeliers float above banquettes piled with velour pillows, and a long, 20-seat marble counter faces the open kitchen. Though it's a bit far from downtown Mountain View, it's a popular haunt for the techies from nearby offices, who link up to power-lunch. Skillfully prepared dishes, however, prove that The Voya isn't just for show. Tender cochinita pibil tacos, drizzled with habanero sauce, arrive with a pile of tasty cilantro-infused rice, and the sweet and crunchy coconut shrimp with herb aïoli are full of flavor. For dessert, a molten chocolate cake may be a '90s throwback, but it's a gooey, rich and captivating one."

Beyond the food, Voya’s beauty lies in its private dining options. The refinement and modern atmosphere is ideal for private events. It is artfully designed to handle a large variety of dining needs, from the casual to those of the technological giants in whose shadow it thrives. The potential forView Private Dining Details
Food was good, but not out of this world, service was very good. Enjoyed the meal, a bit over-priced.
i loved everything that I tasted .We went with 5 people for a birthday so I tasted everyone's food.They gave us 2 complimentary desserts for the birthday' my only negative on this restaurant is the wine prices were disgusting really! wines by the glass were $17 - and up and that's just too much .
We were in the area for a meeting and wanted to have dinner close by. It looked interesting so we gave it a try. The setting is in a strip mall which was weird but once we got inside the decor was lovely. The food was great and the service was exceptional. But overall the price was much more than we had been expecting or looking for. So, we would recommend it highly but this is not a casual dining experience.
Our first time at The Voya turned out to be a very good experience. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and attentive without being invasive. There is an interesting selection of appetizers and main courses to the point that it was difficult to choose among options. The wine selection was somewhat limited but eclectic. The sitting area is very small, so reservations are recommended unless one wants to dine on the counter.
Its a small place. Waiter rushed us from the moment we got the table. Food was tasty and good but over expensive. Difficult to justify the value!!
Unlikely to go back and will not recommend.
Need a full bar.
Tucked away inside a small shopping center is a true 'joya', real jewel, named Voya. And Voya is a joya in many respects, as the food is delicious and the service quite personal as it is a small place. So don't miss it, well worth the effort. Enjoy!
Another winning meal at Voya. Crab and avocado salad were awesome along with the Ceviche mixer and guac. Had one Sangria which is always good too! Check out the Branzino...how else serves a plate like this in the bay area...nobody! I even took photos to prove it:)
I absolutely love this place! It is so underrated!! This place has great food and an amazing staff. My husband and I had a wonderful dinner there. The food is really great, lots of Gluten free options as I have to stick to that protocol and it didn’t even feel like I was missing anything. We come every few months and we are amazed at how great it is every time. I recommend the coconut shrimp, the empanadas AND don’t forget the guacamole! It’s the best besides my own which I make at home, and believe me I’m a tough critic when it comes to Guac!! 😊
Delicious as always! The food is above average and always fresh.
Their beef sliders, Ceviche selections are so yummy. Will go back!
We set for a 9:45 reservation and they were kind enough to call and ask “if it’s possible can you come at 9:30and if not we understand” We made it in for 9:30 and it was worth it. Small quaint place, very nice decor. Our family of 5 after a day at Great America, 2 adults and 3 kids. Our son is used to having bread at the table. The waiter went over and beyond make this happen, after our son asked. All of our appetizers, meals and desserts were amazing. Salmon, Ceviche, Vegetarian Enchiladas etc. We will be back!!
It felt like a place trying to be fancy, but with spray painted acoustic tiles, and mirrors in odd places, the ambiance was very forced. I'd think it would be great for business lunches, but I couldn't see where a team lunch could take place, as it was a small space. The prices were steep, though the quality and flavor was decent. The portions were restrained. The alcoholic beverages felt pretty pricey for what they were offering. A sangria for $15? The cheapest glass of decent wine was $14, with a glass headed into triple digits? Sure it's Opus or Silver Oak, but it's absurd to have less than 20 options for red wine, and most of them are astronomically expensive.
Service was fairly available, but didn't feel particularly engaged.
Great food, way overpriced.
This place is one of my new favorites. I've been 4 times and not once has anyone in my party left disappointed (OK, let's be honest, no one has ever left without saying "wow.")
The churrasco is my go-to, but the sea bass was also amazing. Even the off-menu quesadillas they whipped up for my 4-year-old were delicious.
Oh, and try the guacamole. Pairing it with taro chips and fried plantain is culinary genius!
My daughter and I chose this restaurant because it is very close to Shoreline where we were headed after dinner for a concert. Reviews said the food was very good, the service was considerate of people needing to get to Shoreline in time, and they offered vegetarian choices as well as South American menu items. The reviews were right on all counts. We had a wonderful dining experience and I would love to take friends and family there again.
Great paella; OK Sangria but expensive. It is a good choice for dinner before Pear Theatre
The food was truly exceptional...empanadas and sliders to start set the stage for delicious sea bass and paella to follow. A cafe Americana to wind down with delicious beignets. Service was attentive and swift. Couldn't ask for more but for a bigger parking lot!
Our group of six people enjoyed all of the appetizers and entrees. Service was quite good. The ceviche of mahi mahi in lime juice was amazing. Great Chilean Sauvignon Blanc wine as well. Intimate setting.
This was our first time here. The food was great, but our server was a bit lethargic in regards to taking our orders. Ambience was great.
One of the best restaurants in town!
Yum! Snapper ceviche was so very good. Yucca and plantain chips were great. House paella with seafood was spicy and yummy. A definite do again.
Nice.... Very good wine by the glass
Made our reservation for 6:00 PM and asked for the outdoor dining “patio” because a revue said that it was very nice. Turned out to be on the very edge of a parking lot. Less than 10 feet from our table a car sat idling for several minutes. Then a Coca-Cola truck took over. Before we were seated, I asked to sit inside but was told that all the tables had been reserved, even though only one was occupied. By the time we left, only two were taken.
The food: I had a nicely spiced dish called Seven Seas. It was served in a small cast iron pan with some shell fish, shrimp, calamari and vegetables in a spicy sauce that I liked very much. It came with two tortillas. When I asked for more, the very nice and efficient waiter told me that he would have to charge me for them, and I told him okay. Three more cost me $2.75.
My wife had the Cabo Ceviche. It looked strange (milky, opaque) to me and she didn’t like it.
Mountain View has many better and less expensive restaurants downtown, 10 minutes away.
We had the Branzino whole fish and the seafood stew. Both are very good, the whole fish was very tasty. The restaurant is small, there are seven or eight tables. We sat at the counter which is quite comfortable. There are four tables outside too. Service is good. We will come back again definitely.
Love this place! Just this time around, people around were noisy 😂
Dont let the strip mall scare you . This place is excellent.
It was ok. I have had better Taoas and the table w couple next to us was SUPER loud to the point where we could not hear eachother at our neighboring table. The Ceviche was excellent!
Not worth the price, food was just OK. I also would not characterize the restaurant as a "tapas" place. "Peruvian ceviche" is not Peruvian ceviche, it's completely different. Service was friendly but the food was not up to par for what they're charging. My wine glass was also brought to me dirty and I had to send it back after the waiter failed to see it twice. They should revisit their menu if they're going to keep those prices up, which I don't mind paying if the food is worthwhile.
Food was great, but pricey. We ordered the seabass, vegan paella, prawns - all done well, portions are ok. Would have liked to see some nice cocktails on the menu. Dessert was good too - not too many options there either.
Surprised to find this good food at this location. Good service, Nice food
They are in a unique location off the beaten path, and they offer some good appetizers
Service was good. Place is nice. Good place to take your t
Date. For the price they charged, food was average, and portions were small. After spending $50 per person, I got hungry again by the time I got home LOL.
Overall, our. Lay experience was very nice! The food was very tasty, although all the plates we ordered seem to have a lot of the same ingredients. The verge empantillas were a delicious appetizer. The braised pork was very tasty but not as tender as I thought it would be. The menu offers a nice selection, but as I already mentioned all were accompanied with similar sides. The place is modern elegant which was a great vibe, however the tables were too close together and it got pretty loud. I guess e it good not a great. They forgot to bring dessert for the birthday girl. I noted it on my Open Table reservation, and I called that late afternoon to confirm it. Still didn’t happen. Service was fabulous outside of this.
Lots of great food options, vegetarian and vegan!
The restaurant is small and intimate. Very comfortable. Patio seating available. The food is very unique and tasty. A true international blend. I would have preferred my sea bass be a little less cooked but was still good. The service is very good.
This is near work, so it's a great place to get lunch. Lots of yummy seafood dishes, but be prepared because many of them are spicy! I'd like a few no spice options, please. Staff are attentive and friendly and keep a close eye to make sure you always have water or whatever you need. Food always seems to come quickly and is delicious. It's a small space, so it's pretty cozy, but upscale. Give it a try!
The food was great, the noise was unbearable and you feel like you're sitting on top of other patrons as the place is super small. To top it, we were asked to wrap it up because they had other reservations coming in. I'm sorry, but no matter how small you are or how many reservations you line up, you should never kick a customer out; that's just damn rude! There are other ways to be subtle.
Suffice to say, I will only go back if I'm craving their food and I need to eat before watching a movie across the street.
Great Latin American food, good service. Small enough to be cozy but not so small you feel the weight of staff. Great find for the Bay Area where 90% of places are either a chain or over-done.
