Homemade Popsicles!

Homemade Popsicles! What fun. A perfectly acceptable neighbor bistro. Food very good. Ambience average. Cozy, but felt like I had enough privacy at my table. Surprisingly, the service was spotty. I will return.

Girl friends and I needed a place to celebrate a 50th birthday. Some old friends who do not live locally wanted to contribute some champagne and desserts. The champagne was waiting at the table and was great. All the food was fantastic, and the dessert did not disappoint. The restaurant also sent one dessert over complimentary. Service was flawless.

The food and the service are excellent. I had rabbit that was delicious, although it was a small portion.The price was somewhat high , but of money value. The beer selection is larger than in most places and I found a Maredsous of highest quality. Th ambiance of the place was also very agreeable.

Busboy shook off the next table's placemat while I was eating, showering me with crumbs and liquid. 6. Bill was incorrect - twice! 7. Heavy... More

This is the place to go when you feel like a touch of France but you don't have a plane ticket. It is not full blown French/Belgium cuisine, but pretty close. The bistro ambiance, the fresh delicious preparations and efficient staff make this an easy place to choose when you want a delicious dinner but not a full on dining... More

Oh, how we love Et Voila! This is our "go to" neighborhood restaurant with visiting family and friends. Et Voila! has a cozy, unassuming atmosphere, excellent food, and an experienced, professional waitstaff. The menu, with modern interpretations of Belgian and French classics, has something for everyone. I actually think that the food, which has always been excellent, has gotten even... More

Et Voila is consistently good. mussels are always fresh and well prepared. The seating is close and neighborly rather than quiet and intimate.

With great positive anticipation, I made a reservation for 3 at Et Voilà, on Macarthur Boulevard, Washington D.C., to celebrate my husband's 70th Birthday. It took a good 15mn before we could get a menu. I ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio. What I was first served was definitely NOT Pinot Grigio and was warm. I returned and got what... More

Really nice welcome by the wait staff. Our waitress was a joy. Two of us for dinner in a packed long room. We had the ramp soup which was served chilled. Really refreshing, healthy and deep green. Came with dollops of garlic parmsean cream floating on top. We both had the Belgian ale stew. Trio of ice creams and chocolate... More

Four of us had dinner at Et Voila on a Friday night in Spring. The joint was jumpin' despite no music. We got a table at the back where it was a bit more quiet. Excellent mussels dishes, good onion soup, no one had a bad meal, though the seafood stew (that I did not taste myself) was reported to... More
