We love this spot. The menu keeps it simple and gives one a manageable set of options. The same for the wine list, which slants toward French options as you would expect. The food is excellent! Love the goat cheese salad and cassoulet. And it is affordable, especially on Sunday when the wine is half price and on Wednesdays with their three for $35!

Excellent food! Everything is delicious! The Salad Maison is simple, but so tasty...the salad dressing is so the best!! The burger is divine, while the salmon is incredible. Profiteroles have vanilla ice cream, and the most delicious chocolate sauce!
Charming restaurant with impeccable service!

My wife and I on a Sunday afternoon. The cocktails were great. My boeuf bourguignon was the best I've had at a restaurant. Her three cheese ravioli was also perfect, as were both of our simple salads.
The service was indifferent at best. It was not crowded and three server guys were standing around chatting while we were there. We were not ignored but no one was putting themselves out.
We don't want someone hovering over us asking every few minutes if we are all enjoying our meal, but we would like some contact occasionally and maybe a smile or a semblance of effort.
We'll go back because the meal was so good, but hoping for much better service as would befit the food and ambience.

This was our second visit to Voila. The food was as good as the first time. The French Onion Soup was the best I ever had. We had a generous portion of Salmon and the sauce was outstanding. For dessert I had the ice cream filled puff pastry with a dark chocolate sauce. It was beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious. We could not have asked for a better meal for our anniversary.

Voila is one of our very favorites. Everything is delicious, but we're consistently blown away by the specials. Some of the best duck I've had anywhere. When in doubt though, you can always just order one of the best hamburgers in the city. The service is always incredible, the ambiance is perfect bistro, and it's just the right balance of fancy and casual. Really: It's a successful trip to Voila every time. Love it there.

this restaurant has the best French cuisine that I have ever had. My husband and I made reservations at here for Seattle Restaurant Week. I had the mussels in Blue cheese sauce, a salad for appetizer and bread pudding for dessert. My husband had escargot for appetizer, steak and fries for dinner and ice cream with chocolate sauce. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for date night, special occasions or when you have a craving for delicious French food.

We had a fine time, celebrating a birthday. From my past experiences, I knew to expect that the service would be slow, and it was. It was fine for our occasion, but a bit slow for most typical restaurants. I had the hamburger, which was excellent.
