Just wonderful. Not much is written about et Voila, but it is consistently better than more trendy spots that show up in the Washington Post. Excellent wines, the best cocktail I’ve ever had, and wonderfully tasty appetizers and main courses.

Seemed like service was stretched thin last night and understand finding people who want to work is an issue these days so we give them a pass.

If you can sit on your couch and collect a paycheck from the Government it doesn't help these small businesses.

This was our first in-door restaurant meal since the pandemic began. Service was professional and attentive. My spouse had the Flemish stew and I had the hanger steak. Both were quite good and the portions were ample (I struggled to finish which for steak says something). Tables were nicely spaced. Our waiter brought us a modest complimentary dessert because it was our anniversary. Nice neighborhood bistro feel. A very pleasant experience overall. We look forward to going back.

Only complaint was noise level in back left room where we were seated.

This was our first post-pandemic visit to et Voila. In the interim we had carry-out, cook at home mussels a few times; fantastic! Tonight it was trout and branzino; wonderful flavor combinations, fish perfectly cooked. And that chocolate sundae--OMG!

Delicious as always! On a Monday night, the place was packed! Clearly everyone is happy to get back out for meals with friends. I had the sole, and my friends raved about the trout & the mussels with frites. We were too full for dessert.

This is a best kept secret kind of restaurant. The food is among the best in the sea, you cannot beat the price and the team there are gracious and thoughtful. We have so enjoyed this restaurant every time we visited, three times now, and look forward to many more date nights there in the future.

A lovely little neighborhood restaurant. The servers were attentive and knowledgeable. We had the mussels and a stew preceded by a very good salmon tartare appetizer with crispy rice. The mussels were very good quality but, sadly, the broth was rather tasteless. The accompanying fries were nice. The stew was like beef bourguignon. It was good but not exceptional. We will return and give it another try.

One of my favorite restaurants and I am so lucky that it is in my neighborhood! So happy to brings friends to have brunch and enjoy the inside of the restaurant. They have been amazing throughout COVID with their safety precautions and I am so happy they made it through and are reopening the inside for service. Excellent service and food! Thank you so much.

I’ve always had superb meals at Et Voilà and last night was no exception. The whole Branzino was perfectly cooked (and deboned) — absolutely delicious! The service was perfect, and eating outside there was almost no traffic on MacArthur Blvd, NW. Highly recommended.

Although the food was generally good, they rushed us through dinner. Perhaps since we had a 6:30 reservation we were being rushed to seat more at 7:30? Not sure why, since others who were seated before us were still eating entrees when we left. We were there for no more than 35-40 minutes. Three different waiters a minute a apart asked for our order within 5 minutes of seating, and then food arrived in to minutes or less. Fine for a quick lunch, but not a weekend dinner.

Long time, if ever, we will be back.

We had a nice lunch. The food was very tasty and the service was attentive. The restaurant (indoors) is still a bit small and cramped even after the renovations and it felt a bit tight, especially in these times of social distancing, but there's but much more that they can do. We had mussels, cold corn soup and an omelette, all of which were very good. We would go back and I hope they keep the outdoors open when the weather cools a bit, though it is right on the road.
