Everything was great, my escargot was overdone but the rest of my meal was splendid. The only bad thing was the bathroom, it was disgusting and dirty and there were cleaning supplies on the baby changing table, for such a nice restaurant, very distasteful.

We wanted an al fresco dining experience to bring back memories of Paris, and La Voile came thru. The food was excellent, as were the wine offerings. We chose the 3-course pre fixe menu, and were not disappointed. A return visit is definitely in our future.

We love it here! They have adapted everything to the new Covid dining experience so you feel safe and well cared for. The Dover sole is amazing and I tried the risotto for the first time and it was sublime!

Always a wonderful trip to Paris with all the delightful culinary treats. My steak was delicious, but a buit chewy this time. Thank goodness it was accompanied by a mound of "frites".

I'm a regular diner there...we both had the ribeye which was tough and we weren't given steak knives so it was difficult to cut. Will order something else another time.

My five year old will compare all steaks to the one she had here. She finally discovered there are better chefs than her mother. This restaurant was a great introduction to French cuisine for her with dishes we find whenever we travel through France.

All the food we ordered were great except the rib eye which was let if taste if France package. It was chewy and could t eat it. The owner was nice enough to apologize and offered a replacement. He also gave us dessert wine and dessert on the house. The tenderloin and lamb rack were great! Overall good experience and we are coming back.

Amazing place and fantastic food. Although I have to say sometimes the young hostesses/receptionists are stepping over their limits and acting with rude manner but every single time general manager guy steps in and just makes things so much pleasant.
Overall, I love this place and highly recommend it.

I’m so grateful for this safe, fine dining experience during covid. Understandably, many restaurants have pared their menus. La Voile this a able to keep excellent items and in a safe way. We dined outdoors and felt comfortable. All he staff wore masks. Tables were safely distant. The trout was terrific as was the pate. Thank you!

Terrific job managing for Covid- spaces tables outdoors, friendly service, and La Voile’s usual good food quality. It was our first dinner out since March 21st. We made a great choice. We will, of course, be back.

We dined outside on Newbury Street in a roped off area so noise levels were street noise. It was not too bad. Service was exceptional. Food was delicious but the Dover Sole was pricey. All in all, a lovely experience.

This is an outstanding restaurant that we have visited many times over the years. The outdoor seating was comfortable and didn't impact the attentive service. The menu was not limited. We enjoyed the Dover Sole and the Mussels. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and delicious! You need to go to La Voile.

We looked up the menu online and decided to try the restaurant, it was absolutely wonderful, the service was 5 Star or as my husband said “better than a 3 star Michelin restaurant “ - the food was classic but inspired with a contemporary twist - we dined on the back patio which was prefect and quiet, I hope they continue with the back patio
