Outdated food, service and ambiance. The small crowd were all in their 70's or older. Sad because I live in the neighborhood and I was hoping for a close spot to dine.

Coupons--buy one get one free! $28 value!! Must buy two drinks and they charge 18% gratuity! Food is just OKAY, service is hit and miss, over-priced food, drinks over-priced, feature salad Beet/ goat cheese-$14!!! vegetables are an extra. Door man is ungracious and creepy-- the way he stands around the corner looking at diners and he runs around in circles-doing... More

On February 26, 2013, I took an out-of-town visitor to Voltaire's Restaurant knowing that the individual would appreciate the delightful ambiance, the superb service and the excellent food. As always, the host and maitre d', Martin, warmly greeted us and the evening was off to a great start. The lovely refined atmosphere and quiet surroundings allowed my guest and me... More

We went with our friends who are long time patrons of the restaurant. I had the Le Carre D'Agneau Rack of lamb with tarragon and ate every bite! While the crowd may be on the older side, the place was packed by 6:30 on a Wednesday (and snowy) evening! Wonderful service & wine list.

My wife and I love French cuisine and after living in Scottsdale for several years have yet to find a French restaurant we like better than Voltaire. The regular menu is outstanding, but in my opinion the real treat is to watch for the specials that Chef David prepares and get in on them!. Get on Voltaire's email list or... More

My wife and I just got home from dinner at Voltaire. The decor is a little dated but the food and service was second to none. My wife had the filet which melted in our mouths and I had the sole which was super. To end the evening we shared the Creme brûlée which was great. You cannot find food... More

I have lived in Scottsdale for well over 12 years and must have driven by a million times, not knowing that the "Voltaire" is one of Scottsdale's best kept secrets. The patrons all seemed quite satisfied as I sat and watched as I always do when eating at a new establishment. The servers were all very polite and seemed to... More

Really wanted to like this restaurant as we are Francophile foodies, but... The decor seemed old rather than elegant. A sign over the urinal asking me not to pee on the floor was off putting. Service was friendly but average. Food was good to average. My wife liked the Poulet en Croute. The Canard a L'Orange however that I ordered... More
