Sleek marble counter-tops surround a stunning open kitchen where Executive Chef Armando Ramirez prepares a menu composed of only the freshest ingredients.


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."

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.

It was dissatisfactory - we reached on time and the staff was rude and the restaurant was dirty. They were discourteous. I was disappointed and we told them it was unacceptable and we left. There was no customers in the restaurant - just loud rude staff. The cook seemed like a good person and understood why this was unacceptable.

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.

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.

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.

The occasion was Valentine's Day dinner. The menu was Prie Fixe' d. The meal included an appetizer, Salad, Entree, and dessert. The cost of all this was $75.00 per person. When we got the bill it was for much more. The waitress attempted to charge us for the desserts. I caught this and called it to her attention. She knew this was a Prie Fixe menu, but thought she could get away with charging more. I doubt if I"ll ever go back, and will warn other people of this scam.

I really liked my food and wine, and so did my partner. We also had a fantastic waiter, who was just training, but he was perfect. I felt the food and wine prices were high. Not that far out of line with what they were worth, but it's not a steal, and not a place I'd go often because it's a little steep.
Very nice ambiance though and interesting Spanish-influenced food. Also not really tapas. Though their ceviche was wonderful.

Service was a little slow on Sunday. Waiter told us his coworker was sick and we sent home. That was okay with us. We were not in a hurry. This was our first time visiting this restaurant. We liked the decorations. Food was good. The price was right for the portion of food. Being said, we (4 people) ordered 5 dishes, was a little too much food for lunch. We when there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The Voya treated the birthday with complimentary dessert, our choice. That was awesome! We all enjoyed the lunch. We'll be back for sure.

We had a table for three and ordered three different seafood entrees (mahi mahi, prawns, and a type of sea bass). Voya features South American cuisine in unique preparations. They have a nice wine selection and appealing dessert options. Service is very good. The restaurant is not large -- reservations recommended, though I believe they do take-out.

The dishes we selected were all very flavorful. The service was very good. The ambiance was nice, but it is a small space so the tables are very close together along a banquette. It’s very hard to screen out the conversations next to you, even when people are talking at normal levels. There were also a lot of laptops in use at other tables which was distracting at dinner. The lighting was subtle with the exception of a super bright chandelier by the front door which shines in your eyes if you are seated on the banquette. I will go back for the food, not the ambiance.

I think my friends and I MIGHT have enjoyed The Voya. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to eat in the restaurant. When we arrived on a Thursday night for our 730 pm reservation (which we made 1.5 weeks prior), we were told by the person who greeted us that none of the people sitting at the six or so tables was going to leave any time soon, and that we (four of us) could either sit at the bar or they could seat us at their “sister restaurant” two doors down. (There was no “I’m sorry. We made a mistake.”) We didn’t want to sit at the bar. We wanted to talk to each other, so we went to the sister restaurant. The Voya is a sleek, bright and modern little (too little, apparently) restaurant. The sister restaurant is an older-looking Italian place with a somewhat cavernous dining room; it was okay in a quaint way, but somewhat rundown looking. I think we were the only people in the entire place.

It was really annoying that the person who greeted us didn’t acknowledge that the restaurant had screwed up. It seemed like a normal thing to her. (Bad sign.) To give The Voya credit, the manager (owner?) came over to the sister restaurant about 5 minutes later to apologize and assure us we could order food from the Voya. He comped us an appetizer, which we appreciated. He was pretty attentive. The food was good.

BUT we were stuck in the somewhat dreary, cavernous, empty restaurant next door instead of the pleasant, bright buzzing place where we made the reservation. It was a disappointment, made all the worse by the fact that the staff didn’t seem fazed by it — as if that is their strategy for handling their mismanaged bookings. I don’t know how long this restaurant has been open but they need some professional help at the front of the house to make sure they are able to seat the customers whose reservations they have accepted.

Delicious! Most menu options are gluten free, which made it very easy to order! I had the shrimp and cilantro rice, and ordered a side of corn tortillas - yum! My husband had the spicy chicken and found it - SPICY! Great service, we were taken care of quickly (with exception of an odd delay to get tortillas, ordered as our dinners arrived and we saw all the delicious sauce). We went before going to a movie and they had no problem meeting our needs.
