Voila French Bistro
New owner since the 1st october 2015, a new menu is crafted by the french chef Jean- Christophe, which reflects the best of East France and the freshest ingredients of the season. Jean Christophe's personal touch and tireless devotion to his creations has made a night at Voilà the perfect place for date night, friends getting together, a nice family dinner, or private party.
Loved the food! The moules, the filet mignon, and the soufflé were all delicious!
Voila is a small restaurant with the owner chef in the kitchen and his wife is often present as a server. The decor is pleasant but not pretentious. The server was attentive and helpful. My wife and I shared the French Onion soup and it was delicious. Not too salty as is sometimes the case. My wife had the scallops in puff pastry and the scallops were cooked to perfection and the pastry was extremely light. I had the La Choucroute which was delicious. We shared a Grand Marinies Soufflés which was so light it almost floated away. In conclusion the quality of the food was absolutely outstanding and compared to some of the best restaurants we have dined in.
Great food, great service, unique food experience.
This was perfect for a birthday celebration for 2 on the patio. The wine menu has fun maps and information. The 3 cheese appetizer was beautiful to look at with tasty cheeses. Both of our entrees had wonderful sauces - the beurre blanc in the Le Saumon and the white wine sauce in La Choucroute. We will definitely go again to try the mussels and a dessert.
Charming, cozy little restaurant with great food. We went there for my birthday and everything I ordered was super.... I started with the petoncles (scallops with hollandaise) which were outstanding. I could have made an entire meal of them. I followed up with l’agneau (rack of lamb) and finished with Grand Mariner soufflé for dessert. They were both wonderful. The wife had the escargot and choucroute and was happy as well. If any friends ask for a recommendation for a French restaurant, we’ll send them to Voila. A little pricey, but worth it.
The four of us went to Voila Restaurant for Mothers Day. What a fantastic restaurant. Sound level was quiet, so we could actually hear each other talking. It has been a long time since I have been to a restaurant so quiet. Staff were very friendly, professional and attentive. Food was out of this world. We all ordered different items and all were very very tasty. Can't wait to go back to Voila for a dinner. Thanks for a great day.
Le buff parfait!!!! Super le chef, l’ambience et le soufflé...omg!
Shame the waitress’s think it’s a Chili’s. Being asked ‘can I get you anything hon?’ Well that says it all. The these 2 waitresses should be working in the sports bar next door...
As per usual, we were greeted promptly, served efficiently with great friendliness. Sole à la Meunière was excellent and Îles flottantes frothy and floating in addictive crème anglaise. A perfect night.
Food was delicious and the service was great .We are definitely going back
We have frequented numerous Scottsdale restaurants, but Viola is our favorite one by far!!!!!
Chicken entre was not good. Flavor not acceptable and texture unpleasant. Escargot were OK and so was the bread. Mussels were OK but not exceptional. Overall, disappointing experience.
The server was relatively new and inadequately trained. The person knew nothing about the food or the wine. My dining companion received the wrong appetizer and it took forever for the correct one to arrive. My appetizer (escargot) was awful. My duck was tasteless and the orange sauce was reminiscent of the bottled orange sauce that you can buy in the Asian section of the grocery store. My dining companion’s sole was also disappointing.
When brought to the attention of the owner she was basically non-responsive. No apology or anything else.
I ordinarily would not post like this - but the experience was subpar in every regard.
We had a wonderful Anniversary dinner at Voila. The food was exceptional. I had the scallops St Jaques and my husband had the special of the day Salmon. Better than we've had in France!!!
My only suggestions to enhance the evening would have been service that matched the quality of the food, and a little less bright in the dining room. We loved that fact that the chef does not allow substitutions or splitting of entrees. That is the sign of a real chef........the food is paired and complimented for the best possible taste and messing around with it is an insult to the chef.
Thank you for a wonderful evening!
Great food, somewhat slow service. We'll be returning soon.
This is a truly authentic French restaurant. It is so lovely to dine here, both inside and out,and the food is amazing. Segelene is a delight and her husband, Jean Christof the chef, is so talented. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
We Love Viola French Bistro!
Voila takes you out of the fast-paced bussiness and places you into a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere
of good wine, lovely food and attentive service. Mussels, escargot, other fish specialities and delicious
French specials . Good wine and yummy, Yummy souffles !
We love this little authentic French restaurant in our neighborhood1 Everything is perfect and the food outstanding!!!! THANK YOU!
This is true French cooking. The sole is excellent. The gran marnier souffle was out of this world. We had the Sancetrre white wine, excellent, maybe overpriced, but truly excellent. A wonderful dinner. The only complaint was that the price is too high. But we would go back tonight if possible. Tom
Such a nice little place with lovely owners. The food was delicious with tasty but not overwhelming sauces. I am new to the area, but will definitely go there on a regular basis from now on.
Wonderful dinner in a very lovely setting! Would definitely recommend trying Voila French Bistro.
Slow night. Waitress was co owner. Service excellent. Food flavorful and fresh. Outside seating. Very nice. Good ambiance. Decent wine selection. Some items may be overpriced. Overall very good experience
This was our second visit, driven primarily by the outstanding experience we had on our first visit. The owner and his wife create their magical and exquisite menu. "All French. All the time."
We discovered Voila French Bistro will be closed in July, but open again in August for the season. We have already started thinking about who we will invite to join us for dinner or lunch this fall.
Fabulous food with exceptional service by owners who are truly dedicated to their craft.
great staff, wonderful food. nice and relaxing place to eat a meal and not feel rushed.
This was our first time at Voila. The food was excellent......great, hot bread. We enjoyed the cheese plate first. The Cahor Malbec was very good. My wife had the special of the evening; a chicken dish; which she commented was very good. I had the duck (canard l'orange) which was delicious.......very well prepared.....reminded me of the meals I had last summer in the Dordogne and Lot River Valleys in France. And the Creme Bruleé as fine. Really fine evening on the patio. We will be back! Thank you.
Authentic French Cuisine! This was our first visit to Voila French Bistro but it won't be our last. The experience was WONDERFUL. They have a great selection of menu items and a very nice reasonably priced wine list. We started with the Fromages and a bottle of Bordeaux (La Chapelle de Meyney Saint-Estephe). Delicious. For entrees we had the La Sole and the Le Foie gras de canard. Both were wonderful. And we finished with L'ile Flottante (Vanilla cream, beaten egg white & caramelized sauce). Out of this world! If you want to try some authentic and outstanding French cuisine then by all means visit Voila French Bistro! You will be happy you did.
Voila is a very sweet French bistro. The food, ambience and service is very very good and authentic! Great neighborhood gem that really has spread word of mouth. Sign of a very successful restaurant!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Wonderful food, wonderful evening!!
We had an excellent experience here. The serving staff was on point. The owner stopped by to ask how our dinner was. I really like it when they do this. It shows that they truly have an interest in your opinion. Our onion soup was outstanding, the bread with aioli cheese sauce was delicious, and you had the option of the oil and balsamic vinegar at the table. The duck confit delicious and tender. Had I known, I would have asked for light sauce as it was a bit too rich for my taste. The potatoes au gratin was just enough to accompany the duck. The tomato halves were a nice garnishment on the plate. Presentation was lovely. My husband had the salmon in a pancake of sorts. He loved it. A very intetesting presentation.
I love this place! I am a serious foodie and I can not say enough good things about this restaurant. I usually am not excited about eating out (unless is sushi or sometimes Indian) because I always get disappointed and think, I can make it better at home. This place is different. Great food, try the scallops in puffed pastry it is really special, and definitely have the soufflé. I am still trying to figure out their recipe. The atmosphere is lovely and it is quiet enough to have a conversation. If you like good food definitely try it!
The best French restaurant outside France
Excellent food and service
Nothing is better than an owner operator
Incroyable! This bistro is amazing. My husband and my father took me here for my birthday and it did not dissapoint. I am a huge lover of French food and, after living in France, I have incredibly high expectations. Voila Bistro reached those expectations and beyond. Bravo Voila et merci pour la très bonne expérience!!!
Delicious food and excellent, unrushed service. A wonderful place for a lunch where one can enjoy food and conversation with companions.
We had a wonderful meal with friends at Voila, which we expected. What surprised us was the wonderful sense of place. I won't say we were transported to Paris but we did feel the essence of France the moment we walked in the door. The aromas, candlelit tables, and starched, white table cloths served as the perfect backdrop to the cuisine and the charming owner/hostess who greeted us and served our meals. My dish was salmon, potatoes and spinach served with a creamy sauce. We also had roast duck with baby potatoes. How were these ingredients prepared? Perfectly. The flavor of each ingredient stood on its own yet blended with the other ingredients. The result was distinctly French. Highly recommended.
Wonderful romantic bistro for lunch. We sat outside with same great food and service. Enjoyed La Quiche au Saumon, La Bouchée à la Reine (best item), Mimosas, La Profiterole, and Cappuccinos. Perfect for a special occasion! We need to try for dinner.
Cool little restaurant, excellent ambiance and great food. We were there on a Saturday evening and the service was friendly but slow. Other than that, a perfect experience
So fun, food was fresh and delightfully served. Wine list was lovely and dessert even better!
I was there with 3 other women sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The mussels, the fois gras and the chocolate raspberry souffle were our favorites, but everything was delicious. It was well worth the drive from Sedona!
Splendid meal, and atmosphere. You feel as if you are back in France.
Once again, we enjoyed a fabulous dinner, including appetizers and dessert. Thank you, Voila! We will be back.
