Another fabulous dining experience at our favorite Italian restaurant! As always, we were greeted and seated promptly, served with Tom’s attentive and hospitable style, ate delicious food and had an overall wonderful dinner. I love how flexible and accommodating they are and the good humor of everyone as they are clearly enjoying La Torretta.

A very beautiful outdoor space. The staff is very attentive to your needs.I was our twin boys 21st birthday and they don't drink wine or hard liquor so my son looks at his brother and says i bet you wish you could have a Coors light? we all laughed and within about 5-10 minutes the chef sent someone out to get them beers, it was hilarious. The food is definitely spot on. I don't know if it's better than Cafe Monarch , but just as good for sure.

Went here with a friend and we were both so happy with our experience. We try afternoon tea seatings whenever we vacation together so we have a good amount of experience. At first look, the prices were a bit too high for me. We did the Royal Afternoon Tea ($115/person) which includes sparkling wine. The sparkling wine is endless and delicious. The food served was also very good. There was even a chance to have seconds of your favorite tea sandwiches. I would say that there is not a large tea selection as I have seen at other afternoon teas. However, this was a hotel hosting tea, not a tea house, so it was appropriate in my perspective. Overall, I thought the price ended up being worth the atmosphere (luxury hotel!) and fit what we were served. The atmosphere was wonderful. We went on a Friday around 2pm. There were others at this seating but it wasn’t crowded. The pianist was wonderful and the staff was very friendly, attentive, and down to earth. We would do this again, easily.

We had lunch and split a pizza and a salad. The food was good, our server was nice and helpful, and I'd recommend it for a catch up or business lunch.

About the restaurant
Every ingredient that goes into our menu must be of the highest quality. Our prime-grade beef is part of what makes us the steakhouse Scottsdale residents and visitors are talking about. We offer several different sizes of cuts, and our chef has crafted numerous toppings to enhance your experience. Our side dishes perfectly complement our entree selection, and many guests often rave about our Alaskan king crab mac and cheese and our corn créme bruleé. We also serve a selection of fresh seafood from our raw bar, such as freshly shucked oysters, Maine lobster tail and iced Alaskan king crab. All of our steaks are served a la carte, letting each guest personalize their plate. Our full bar offers an extensive wine selection.

Everyone was professional, friendly, yet relaxed. Food was prepared to a high standard and served hot. Steak was really tender. The lobster tails were also tender, and the fries are to die for. Most importantly, they showcase the food and do not over sauce anything. Lastly, Ahi tuna was cooked perfectly and in a wonderful sauce. Besides the atmosphere in this restaurant, which you spell is terrific from the valet to the front desk, everyone is so professional, but yet relaxed.

Voilà French Bistro in Scottsdale offers classic bistro dishes in an exquisitely designed setting. With Sandrine and Maxime and the rest of the team it will be like stepping into France. We are the place for seafood, foie gras, escargot and more.
New owners since January 1st 2024, which includes Chef Maxime. Maxime has and extensive culinary experience of twenty plus years in France, Maxime excels in the traditional French cuisine, with a keen interest on leveraging and innovating with seasonal products. His extensive experience was enriched from working for Michelin star chefs in the east of France, as well as from his training by Chef Jean-Christophe, the previous chef at Voila.In the kitchen, originality in dish plating and taste are words he thinks about every day. What you will experience is not la nouvelle cuisine but la cuisine traditionelle moderne.” A night at Voilà is the perfect place for date night, friends getting together, a nice family dinner, or private party.

We've eaten at Voila French Bistro a few times and were pleased with both the service and the food. On our last visit, my wife thought her steak, which she ordered medium rare, was a bit too well done, but she agreed she should have ordered it rare. Otherwise, everything was excellent.

Excellent experience. Fantastic customer service and wait staff. Pretty interior, and lighting. Sat at a romantic table in the back (round booth) which was further away from the music, so we could hear our conversation. The sea bass was fantastic. buttery, and the savory soy based sauce was to die for. Drinks were outstanding. All worth the price. Would definitely recommend for a date night.
