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

Sherry the Innkeeper at Freemason recommended Voila. We elected to sit at bar and order some apps and custom cocktails. The service was very professional and the food was excellent. This is a really good restaurant with great service and food, the next time in Norfolk we will sit at a table and enjoy the full experience. Harvey & Michelle... More

One of the best upscale restaurants in the area. My wife and I visited Voila for the first time during Restaurant Week. They are a small but well appointed restaurant that you might overlook. Once in the front door, you're treated to old-world style courtesy not seen in many restaurants today. The staff seems to care that customers are treated... More

Every year we stay at the Freemason Inn B&B (see our review nearby) and have dinner at Voila. Even though it's next door, it would definitely be worth a detour -- and it has its own paring lot. We were there for restaurant week, but the menu choices were excellent; only the price reflected the promotion. Food and service were... More

Had dinner here tonight for my birthday. The ambience, music, waiter and food was wonderful. There was 4 of us and we ate a great variety of food. Greek salad, Roasted Beet Salad, Mussels, Pasta Primavera, Duck, Lamb and Salmon - which I will personally say is delish. 3 glasses of wine plus one bottle of wine, Crème Brulee and... More
