We eat there on every trip (maybe five, now) and will keep coming

Excellent food and service at a fair price. Ample free parking makes it a top choice so long as you don't expect a Michelin-star quality kitchen..

Went here during restaurant week. Was a little leery but went as part of a group. Man, I am glad I went. The food is delicious and the wait staff is superb.

We called ahead for a reservation which I would recommend. It is a cozy (small) restaurant which felt comfortable (business casual.) The service was meticulous and the wine recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed the warm bread with EVOO and taste from the Chef John. We used the bread to enjoy the last drop of the delicious broth over the... More

I went to Voila after reading other reviews and checking out the menu. I was pleased that there was a small parking lot, as I dislike venturing out alone in an unfamiliar area where parking is uncertain. The restaurant's decor was eclectic and welcoming - great colors and light fixtures. There are only 11 tables total - some deuces and... More

We enjoyed the service and atmosphere as much as the food. Very artsy, very fresh, very tasty. If you like to imbibe, they have a very interesting and eclectic drink menu. Not your run of the mill drinks.

Restaurant week in Norfolk took us to Voila. Our meal was perfect and the service excellent. It is a tiny place, 10 or 11 tables so I recommend reservations. My husband had escargot as an appetizer and said they were some of the best he has had. I had the butternut soup and it was very good. Our entrees were... More

Was given gift certificate, with rave reviews. Went on a Saturday night. Tried the three course for $30. Waiter said French onion soup was best he had ever had, my husband said it was okay, just like Applebee's. We both had the flat iron steak with French fries, expecting a gourmet flair to French fries. Instead they were normal fast... More

Stopped by for dinner with family after an afternoon in Norfolk. Excellent ambiance, decor and very professional staff with prompt, polite & friendly service. 4 of us selected from the $30/plate fixed menu with varying selections of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Wonderful arugula salad with walnuts, light chunks of Roquefort and very light balsamic vinaigrette for my appetizer/salad followed by... More

If you haven't been to Voila you've missed out on a wonderful meal. Fantastic service, great food and a comprehensive wine list. Off street parking.
