Very enjoyable. We have been looking for a good french resturant since the 6th Avenue Bistro in old town closed. Voila fills that need. Not cheap but we will look forward to our next visit.

The cuisine was authentically French--artistic, tasty, and reasonably-sized portions. The asparagus salad was light and delicious, and we both thoroughly enjoyed our fish. We actually had room for an amazing Profiterolles dessert. The bread was also delicious, but I would've rather had butter than the garlic aioli sauce that came with it. (I'm sure I could've asked). It was a great date night and we'd go there again!

We have been looking for a quaint French restaurant and have found it in Voila! The lunch menu was sufficient and we will return to experience that Dinner menu.
We had the Croque Madame, the excellent onion soup, and the mussels appetizer. We asked for bread and a freshly baked baguette was delivered to our table. We enjoyed the made in house La Creme Brûlée!

Food was good but seemed to be a little skimpy. Ate outdoors which would have been nice but it was unseasonably colder than usual for us natives. Did make a special "dessert" for me but seemed like a big production just to get a single scoop of sorbet when it was part of a grander dessert. Overall, it was a nice, but seemingly, pricy meal.

Keep it short, simple and specific.
Make it useful – describe the scene, food and service levels.
Describe outstanding dishes, beverages or service experiences.
Capture what makes the restaurant unique.
Avoid story-telling or irrelevant details.

It is a traditional French restaurant, elegant but cozy at the same time. The moment I enter, a nice copy of the The Luncheon Boating Party painted by Renoir, caught my attention. We were welcomed by the chef's wife who took us to our reserved table. I felt that personal touch that makes people to come back. I order onion soup, Biftec tartar, and ile flottante. My son had Choucroute and there was no bite left on the plate. Everything was very good! The service was also very professional and courteous. I have to go back soon and try more dishes and desserts. Reservation made time in advance is a must.

Voila is French -- no doubt about it. The menu includes many traditional dishes we have come to miss. Preparations are OK. Appearance is good, but there are restaurants in metro Phoenix that deliver more taste from the same ingredients. Wine list is good -- lots of choice in varietals and prices. As would be expected in a French bistro, the place is crowded except for the area near the street-side which seems to have more space between tables. Lots of patio seating, too. On balance, Voila is not bad -- we may be back.

Outstanding food service etc. Owner served us and was a hoot. She has a great personality and is a joy to be around. All the courses were served in the proper time beautifully plated and delicious. We would suggest this restaurant to anyone who appreciates fine French cooking.

Wonderful escargot and salad nicoise - the bead is to die for! The French onion soup had some seasoning that was a bit off-putting (to my palette) but I ate it all gone - so it (obviously) wasn't that offensive. We'll be back!

A nice small restaurant with personalized service and great food. The chef and his wife along with the one or two person staff make you feel you are in a small bistro in France.
Try the foie gras entry but more importantly try the soufflé for desert- unbeatable.

We won't be going back and would not recommend to a friend. Main entree arrived cold and unfortunately the owner had an unpleasant attitude after we returned the cold entree. Even after ordering appetizers, a$65 bottle of wine and 2 entrees. Poor customer service.

The Epiphany Dinner last Sunday was good, but not perfect. The food was excellent. The wine service was poor. We expected at least 2 pourings of each wine with each course, but this was not the case. The wines were good, but the amount given for an "all inclusive - fixed price" dinner was not enough. For the first wine, my wife was given barely half an inch in a regular wine glass. I was given an average amount. We had to ask for more and it was provided, but not with a "smile". The amount given for the next two wines was adequate, but again, we had to ask for a refill when our glasses were empty. When such an all-inclusive dinner is advertised it should be stated how much wine is included if there is a limit.
We will continue to visit Voila because of its close proximity and because of the excellent food, but we will purchase wine by the glass and watch how much is given each time.

Great food, excellent service good ambience. Love the white table cloths the excellent spacing of tables and being able to have a conversation with your lunch or dinner companion without being drowned out by the sound of loud TVs or music. Soothing relaxing and top of my list for special occasions as well as every day favourites
