    We arrived and sat at the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail. Missy, the bartender, mixed me one of the best Manhattans I’ve ever had. It being our anniversary, we had the caviar with accompaniments at the bar. It was excellent and the price was reasonable and fair. Our dinner was great-well prepared traditional French fare. We had to take our dessert to go and we really enjoyed it at home. The service was warm and friendly. We took an Uber from a long way to get to this restaurant and we’d do it again in a heartbeat. We’re plotting a return soon.

    Best French restaurant in town! Food is impeccable and creative, yet authentic. Service couldn't be better. Good wine selection and great cocktails. And the dessert! Try the "Île flottante", a floating island of meringue in a pool of creme anglaise with caramel sauce. Divine!

    Delighted to enjoy our anniversary dinner at Et Voila! Starting with a friendly welcome, service is always good here, and the menu includes several classic favorites. We love that the escargots are made with pastis. The cheese selection is wonderful -- we don't find bleu d'Auvergne everywhere. Steak frites au poivre sauce was cooked perfectly, as it is every time we've come. Highly recommend the diver scallops. And the wine list includes everything we want (except perhaps a glass of Sauternes or Monbazillac for dessert?). Thank you for a lovely evening. :)

    Ordered the Linguini aux palourdes, pesto de tomate and my husband ordered the Côte de porc tomahawk, sauce moutarde. I wished I had ordered what he did because I was so disappointed in mine. Lesson learned, order Linguine with clam sauce only in an Italian restaurant. The pork chop on the other hand was absolutely marvelous. I ended up eating from his plate because it was so good. Next time... But I loved the place, it is truly French in its own way. The wine was superb, we ordered the Fleurie, La Madone '19.

    Et Voilà! French BistroResponded on September 8, 2022Thank you Julie! We are delighted you enjoyed your time with us. Please don't be shy next time and tell us if you don't enjoy a dish when we check on you. We would be more than happy to have you choose something else! We always want our guests to leave totally satisfied. We are looking forward to welcoming you again soon.

    Wanted to try something different from standard restaurant choices along the coast and in the gaslamp. So glad to have selected Et Voila by chance as an OpenTable recommendation. Perfect place to relax and experience a little Paris at home. Service was excellent, food was delicious. The bread and cheese alone are reason to look forward to visiting again. Perfect for a date night or outing with friends.

    This lovely bistro feels like Paris to me, with comfortable decor and authentic French dishes. Our second visit was just as nice as the first, with really excellent service, a great wine selection, and some really nice preparations of classic French bistro fare. Salads are large, beautifully arranged and lightly dressed. The croustillant chaud de reblochon (baked phyllo dough shell filled with molten reblochon) was delicious. Main plates were beautifully composed, and though simple in principle, they had extra components to give everything an interesting flair. Notably, they have a kaluga caviar with a full setup of accoutrements that’s very reasonably priced - it’s good caviar too. And - They have mussels! Desserts are not to be missed. Good wine selection, a full bar, some great house cocktails and a robust selection of dessert wines by the glass. Really a great place to visit, i recommend it highly.

    Sat outside, which was fairly noisy in spite of plexiglass panels between tables and street. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Many menu selections. We all had the French onion soup to start, which could have been a meal in itself, and was excellent. Thankfully they offered 1/2 portions of many of their entrees. I had 1/2 portion of rissoto, and can't imagine eating a full portion. One of my table mates had 1/2 portion of the mushroom ravioli and ended up taking 1/2 of it home. Bread service could be better as we had to tear the loaf apart with our bare hands. We didn't have dessert because we went 2 doors down and had wonderful gelato at An's Dry Cleaning instead. They need to shade on the west side of the outdoor space...we had to shade our eyes to see each other until the sun went down.

    Came here for my sister’s bday. We ordered the French onion soup, the cheese appetizer, scallops, mushroom risotto, duck, and coq au vin. I have never had scallops cooks so perfectly. The risotto was creamy and substantial, without being overrun by mushrooms. The flavors were rich, and the service was excellent. We also each ordered a drink from their cocktail menu, and the drinks were mixed perfectly. Nothing was too sweet nor too strong. I would absolutely recommend Et Voila for a nice dinner out.
