Disclaimer: My ratings are based upon the classification the restaurant falls under. In this instance, Et Voila, is trying to be a fine dining establishment so I am rating it against its peers in the fine dining segment. Not sure what that no nothing clown Tom Sietsma was talking about. While the food was edible (And it started fairly strong),... More

Et Viola serves up terrific meals, hands down. It consistently gets great reviews and deserves them. The menu is decidedly Belgian bistro/classic and the prep, presentation and taste are wonderful. I've lived in Belgium and had far lesser quality meals. And, the cost is relatively reasonable given the quality. Service was friendly and wine and beer choices diverse. I met... More

We celebrated with three at this great neighborhood place. On a Wednesday, it was bustling - and the food was excellent - from wonderful oysters to amazing beef, we loved it. The service is quick and the tables close, but that adds to the European feel that begins with the Tin Tin posters at the entrance and is furthered by... More

It's no surprise that you have to make a reservations days/week or two in advance on a Friday/Saturday night. This is a fantastic little spot in the Palisades. Very authentic French/Belgian cuisine with everything from Escargot to Octopus to Mussels on the menu. The portions are generous, the staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and accomodating, and of course the food...... More

Belgium is home to some of the best restaurants in the world, and the majority are a family affair. No different at Et Voila where the owner is the chef and making sure what comes out of the kitchen meets his high standards. The restaurant feels like an authentic European neighborhood restaurant with a team that has been there for... More

First, the restaurant is in a charming neighborhood with lots of parking available on the streets nearby. The ambiance is pure Belgian or French bistro - lots of noise and very pretty. Went recently with my wife and another couple, and we all thought that the place was really very good. I couldn't resist having French onion soup, followed by... More

Love this little restaurant which reminds me so much of Belgian bistros! The moules avec frites are excellent. I try to get there as often as I can. Had lunch there today and am ready to go back! Great atmosphere, slow service (but OK), excellent food. Make reservations as they seem to be always crowded.

Upon the recommendation of friends who live in this quaint neighborhood, a friend and I had a good meal at the bar. We chose not to sit in the rear dining area as it is very cramped. The food was good and Belgian beer hit the spot. There is a little seating outside which was already occupied or we would... More

Et Voila was always heavily booked for the four nights we stayed in the neighbourhood, we were lucky to get in at late notice on a Thursday as the locals seem to want to keep it a well-kept secret. The actual restaurant reminded us of a typical Parisian restaurant, small and narrow but with the maximum use of space. The... More

On a recommendation from friends we tried ET Voila ,Located in a very quiet neighborhood on Macarthur Blvd. We didn't know what to expect from the outside as it was so small and quiet, once inside it was obvious that this restaurant was a popular choice for many of the locals and repeat happy customers, with only approx. 25 seats...
