Voilà is a charming gem of a restaurant in the Freemaison district of Norfolk. The atmosphere is intimate and welcoming. The service is friendly and impeccable. Most importantly, the food is over the top. A tasty amuse-bouche preceded the hors d'oeuvre. I had two "specials:" an hors d'oeuvre with sea scallops followed by grouper with rice pilaf and asparagus. My... More

Great choice for date night. The staff were professional and the food was excellent. As a Brit, I was surprised to have the best beef wellington I have ever had in (what felt like) a French restaurant located in America. There was a lot of attention to details at this place, which made the night special. Only downside was we... More

Our New Year's Eve dinner at Voila! was so great, I wanted to recommend it to all of you looking for a special location. It is a little known secret across from the Hague in Norfolk. Voila is a small, cozy, and romantic French restaurant with Greek undertones and outstanding food. Business casual attire is apprpriate. We ordered the 5... More

It's taken just three visits for Voila to establish its place as our favorite neighborhood restaurant in Downtown/Freemason. The staff are friendly, well-trained and knowledgeable. The food is amazing... traditional French fair done with elegance and precision; we tend to order the same thing, Escargot and PEI mussels to start, Steak Frites (her) and Beef Wellington (me) for the entrees....

Its been a few years since I last had dinner at Voila. And it was just as I remembered it, the food was amazing. Our waiter Greg was spot on! One thing I hate is when a server asks you how your meal is when you have a mouth fool of food, that never happened. Can't wait to go back!... More

Wow....not even sure how to start this review. We dined here for the first time tonight. The setting was intimate and pleasing to the eye. The rich earth tones and understated elegance works very well together. We ordered one of the three-course meals. From the first sip of the flavorful, savory french onion soup thru the perfectly prepared final dish,... More

Voila is a great place to go with friends or on a date night. Setting is nice and service is fantastic. They also have an extensive wine list and cocktail list.

This was our 2nd time visiting and this is my 2nd review also. Everything about this restaurant is superb. The service, food, drinks, and wine list. An earlier review complained about lack of parking which is puzzling as they have a parking lot immediately in front. We will always visit whenever we are in Norfolk. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I ate solo at the bar - got there good and early so I could chat with the staff and learn more about the place. It was a short walk from my B&B at the edge of the Freemason neighborhood. Drinks were great - I saw a lot of people have retro cocktails and watched them being made - I... More
