Food has always been good there since the French couple took ownership of the restaurant over 3 years ago. However, there are new items on the menu, and everything was excellent. The petoncles (bay scallops) were the perfect light appetizer, the salmon with a fluffy potato galette was melting in the mouth, the chicken was presented as a roulade, very creative, and the steak tartare was excellent...for those who appreciate it, like my husband. New desserts too: my husband loved the profiteroles and I shared a delicious apple crumble with my daughter.
The outside patio with the heaters is perfect for a night out in the Arizona winter. The restaurant has festive but tasteful holiday decorations, not over the top.
It is a nice restaurant for a romantic dinner or for simply enjoying food and conversations with friends.
The staff is very friendly, and will do their best to give you some advice if you need.
I highly recommend you try it!

Very nice dining experience. Sat on the patio and enjoyed the wonderful food. Our group had French onion soup, crab salad and scallops for appetizers. All were good portions and tasty. Had rack of lamb and salmon and mixed seafood entrees. Also delicious. Finished the great meal with the grand mariner soufflé. The restaurant owner also served us and was very helpful in making food and wine selections. Will definitely be back.

The continues to be a favorite. It’s a lovely spot in an unlikely location, but worth finding. The Dover Sole is excellent, as are the Steak Tartare, the duck breast, the lardons salad and the grand marner souffle is a must!

It’s small, s be sure to make a reservation!

If you've not enjoyed fine french cooking in a while (or, maybe never), Voila is the place to visit. It's expertly prepared and served. It's reasonable by fine french restaurant standards. Been there twice with friends and family and all agree it's great

Authentic French menu, culinary delight. Highly recommend the Choucroute, a delicious seafood dish with scallops, shrimp, clams, salmon and cod with a sweet sauerkrut in a white wine sauce. Grand Marnier soufflé was spectacular. Service was excellent.

We we went with another couple for the 1at time. Very charming atmosphere . We were warmly greeted.
I had French onion soup and a chicken/ mushroom dish , there were 2 fish dishes and a scallops dish ordered.
Everyone was satisfied but not overwhelmed. We also had desserts and everyone gave thumbs up on that.
The bottom line is that we had a nice evening but the food was just okay.

Always A delightful dining experience. We have enjoyed formal dinners here but this time was a spur-of-the-moment after golf decision and it was absolutely lovely. We were very early so sat alone on the Patio for most of our dinner and it was just beautiful...quiet... excellent service and the food waste superb, as usual.

It was our 42nd Anniversarymore expensive bades on . I had read an article about the restaurant in one of the Scottsdale magasine.
Being French I have been meaning to try it. Tuesday is not a busy day for most restaurant. But the service was attentive and we had a chance to talk to the Chef. The menu is interesting and very French. Prices are reasonable. The ambiance is pleasant but the lighting could be softer.
I am sorry I missed Segolene.

Enjoyed our anniversary dinner here very much. Would have chosen to sit on patio, but there were many kids running around and screaming. Their parents being customers at Goldie’s next door. Certainly not “Voila’s fault. Food was excellent and enjoyed the French music being played! Excellent service as well.

Authentic French cuisine in a lovely setting! We eat here about 3-4 times a year and are never disappointed ! The daily specials are excellent as is everything else on the menu! Highly recommend the “Chefs Table” evenings; a (reasonable) prix fix meal perfectly paired by the chef! One of my favorite restaurants in the valley!

What a great evening on the covered patio which kept us dry despite a breezy rainshower. This was our second visit to Voila and we will definiitely be back.
