This is our special Norfolk continental gourmet restaurant for special occasions. It is unfortunate that they are closed on Sundays, when many special dates fall. Though tiny, this is a wonderful venue for a fine meal, especially French fare.

We visited a couple that live in the "area," and they took us to one of their favorite restaurants, Voila. I would describe the restaurant as being "intimate" and with a lot of "atmosphere." There are not a lot of tables, and it is very quiet, that is, except for the music playing in the background. If we lived in... More

My husband and I often go to Voila on date night, as we have had such an amazing experience. First of all, the customer service is phenomenal. We drop our kids at the babysitter, which is close by, and often don't make plans in advance. Once, they had many people going to the opera afterwards and were quite busy. They... More

We were visiting the area and our friends suggested Voila as the place to meet for dinner. What an excellent idea! The staff was extremely personable and attentive and the food was fantastic. I had the bouillabaisse...a generous serving of clams, mussels, shrimp, and fish in a deep flavorful broth that had me singing praises. The kitchen definitely knows how... More

My wife and I returned after a prolonged absence and the sale of the restaurant to new owners and we were totally blown away. Fantastic service, hand-crafted cocktails and a fantastic menu (try the mussels...they were out of this world) made this a place that we will visit much more frequently. Highly recommend dining here if you are in Norfolk.

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
