Nice evening with good friends in a cosy atmosphere. Very god choice of food, mostly reflecting the French tradition. We went for salad, duck, fish soup and fish gratin. All was cooked to perfection and the service was at the expected level. From what I understand from my couple friend living in Norfolk is to be considered amongst the best... More

Dining Companion and I went there on our Friday Date Night. We like to eat a little early so 6:30 great. Not crowded, lots of parking spots right out front. Bret (who is trying to find a French name to go by) was out waiter and was outstanding. I had the duck breast and my date had the salmon. Portions... More

Tonight we had dinner at Voila. This is a smallish restaurant with perhaps 45 seats. Decor is opera and Parisian. Comfortable seating and medium noise, mostly from the nearby bar. My wife chose a prix fixe three course menu at $30. She chose PEI mussels Provençal. A large pile of mussels with lots of garlic. Delicious! Next was Norwegian salmon... More

Voila is a small international foods upscale restaurant in Norfolk. The wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly; not pushy or snooty. The food was excellent and was properly timed. I ordered the Solomos Exohiko and my wife ordered the Gratin de Fruits de Mer. Both were excellent and the portions were larger than I expected. The restaurant seats about 40... More

Hands down the best dinner meal I've had in The Norfolk area. Intimate dining, excellent service, and beyond tasty food from the amuse bouche to dessert. My husband and I chose the Caesar salad and mussels for appetizers ... Make sure to eat the delicious hot bread with the mussels app; the sauce was incredible. For entrees, we were delighted...

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

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
