    This was my first time at Et Voila, and it was brilliant. The staff was very accommodating and helpful, the food delicious, and I loved their coffee! (I can't say that about all restaurants....it's like an afterthought for some of them). I highly recommend it.

    Can’t help it, just love this place. It’s a respite and a great alternative to more DC-centric restaurants and crowds. I knocked a star in value because an espresso was $4.50 … might be standard in DC, but I’m used to paying 1 euro.

    Et Voila has been one of my go-to places for years. But the pandemic and inflation have changed it. The food has always been excellent, still is, and the prices have been not low but reasonable. But the lunch menu is now too brief, too smaller-dinner in style and too heavy--except for salads (see below)--and too expensive. The only "sandwich" is an enormous burger with high-fat add-ons. An entree salad is $18-19, certainly reasonable, but that does not include a protein. To add chicken or salmon, and only fried chicken is offered, brings the price of a salad to the mid-$30's range. Really? For a lunch salad? I am sad to lose a favorite lunch spot but will try it for dinner before giving up entirely.

    The meal was excellent -- salmon tartare followed by trout, spinach, and mashed potatoes. Three of the four dinners selected this combo, and all of us were delighted. Dessert was excellent, too. It was surprising how quiet it was eating outdoor just next to MacArthur Boulevard. Even the appearance of two fire trucks did not unduly disturb our solitude!

    Father’s Day dinner was wonderful. My family enjoyed the regular menu items and the two of the specials: lamb entree and coffee eclair. Restaurant was busy, but service was excellent as usual. Et Voilà is my family’s favorite neighborhood restaurant.

    This definitely a neighborhood gem, we don’t live around the area. My wife and I like to stop and have an early dinner after a show at the Kennedy Center. The menus is simple but the food preparation is phenomenal and delicious! They also gave a decent wine selection.

    We sat on the informal patio on a delightfully breezy summer evening. It was our first visit. I was seated alone while my husband found parking (not far), and was quickly offered water and/or a drink. The menu was just large enough to ensure we had several very appealing choices each (mussels are a specialty). The service was smooth, prompt, and professional. The food was excellent; Flemish beef stew with a dark Belgian beer-based sauce, topped with just the right amount of horseradish-spiked mustard, was exceptional. A perfect classic Gruyère-topped French onion soup was a classic starter. Lentils du Puy are a highlight, and appear in several dishes. Salmon was excellent though simply done. Fabulous Belgian chocolate also features in several of the desserts (we had the dark chocolate mousse, which was even more fabulous than I could have hoped). Throughout, we were tended to just the right amount, not bothered with interruptions but there when needed. Ultimately, we ended up in a really enjoyable conversation with the couple seated at the next table (which was spaced a comfortable distance away), and lingered much longer than expected. The headwaiter eventually came by and very politely let us know that the tables were booked (we had arrived at 5:00 and received this nudge at 8:00, so 100% appropriate and well handled), so we finished up and left with a real gratitude for an exceptionally wonderful evening. All staff were impeccable, food very delicious and satisfying, ambiance perfect for our anniversary dinner. We’ll look forward to returning, and recommend wholeheartedly!

    A delightful evening: the food was excellent. One of us had the hanger steak; two had trout; and the fourth had two appetizers (caesar salad and salmon tartare). The preparation of each was very, very good. My trout was perfect (and the presentation of the mashed potatoes — yes, mashed potatoes — was clever and artistic). We had a (relatively inexpensive) French Malbec that I’d give a 92 to (I’m no Robert Parker, obviously). We shared two desserts that we liked. Service was excellent. The table outside worked well.

    When it came time to celebrate my 70th with a quiet dinner with my wife and some friends in from Peru, there was no place I would rather be than Et Voila! The meal was spectacular, the wine was amazing, the server Alexa was very attentive and informative as to the wine options, and we all had a wonderful time in all regards.

    All our five orders were outstanding. The escargots were very good. The mussels marinière were delicious. The sole meinière was the best I’ve had, as was the hanger steak our friend ordered. For dessert we had floating islands (my wife’s favorite) and chocolate mousse for me. Both absolutely delicious. Alex’s cake with the mousse center was also very good. Food is always consistently outstanding in the many years we’ve been coming.

    Granddaughter’s birthday. The meals were delicious - salmon, hanger steak, my wife had beet soup and Caesar salad. For dessert we had Alex cake and Belgian waffles with chocolate. It was great though I would like for the caesar to be dressed lighter and less shaved cheese however the sardines on the salad are a nice touch. We’ve had dinner here many times and have never been disappointed. This is a small popular restaurant and the noise level is variable depending upon where you are seated. Our waiter was less attentive than usual, but he may have been working more tables than usual. I’m looking forward to our next visit.

    A lovely dinner. Excellent baked mussels, Delicious fish and hanger steak. A bit too rich/buttery for my taste, particularly the veggies which we were looking to for a refreshing contrast to the buttery protein. Creative cocktail menu and extensive wine and beer lists. Service was excellent--friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Love the availability of both indoor and outdoor patio seating.
