My friend and I were looking for a decent dinner and just stumbled into Et Voila.  We were very pleased with our dinner.  Wound up sitting at the bar as we were a 6 PM walk-in on a Saturday night .  Bartender was quite nice and efficient. I ordered one of their five different mussel options and it was terrific - the recommendation from the waitress was spot on.  Room seemed quite pleasant, the noise level was acceptable - easy to talk with my friend.  Very nice bordeaux by the glass which was reasonably priced.

Excellent restaurant! Came for dinner tonight with family. Dishes ordered were Bronzino, ribeye, hangar steak, duck and the risotto. All were delicious! The escargot and goat cheese salad were also excellent. For dessert the floating island and chocolate mousse were phenomenal. Super impressed by this restaurant which is never heard of before. Will be back. More...

I dined at Et Voila last night as a solo diner. Service was friendly but a little slow.  In addition, there was a mix-up in communication among the wait staff, resulting in a delay in putting in my order. Nevertheless, the meal was excellent.  The craft cocktail was good, and my trout entree with spinach and sweet souffle on the side were excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant. More...

Lived in palisades 10 years. Have been here so many times. But tonight I remembered why. The service is flawless. Tonight: Your order was wrong, we'll fix it. COOL. I'm your waitress, I rang it in wrong. CHILL. Coming out soon, here's a glass of wine on us. RELAX.Service is an art. Best night out in a while. More...

I have had both brunch and dinner at Et Voila, and both times the food has been well-prepared and delicious. I particularly really enjoy their brunch, and swear their crab-stuffed waffle is the best brunch item I have ever eaten in my life - and I have had a LOT of brunch. This is the perfect spot to bring family and friends to impress them with a cute local bistro. I have docked one star because I feel as though the portions are a bit on the small size for the cost, which I understand is the fashion of their bistro, but I often find myself still feeling hungry after consuming a the complimentary bread, and app, and my entree. However, this could just be due to the items I've ordered. On the occasions I've been, it hasn't been busy, but I have heard it can be quite bustling for dinner on some nights. Super cute bar area which I haven't personally sat in, but looks like an enjoyable place to have a drink. I love that they offer Saturday AND Sunday brunch as well. They have a few tables out front for when the weather is nice, but the inside of the restaurant is lovely and recently updated as well. Highly recommend! More...

I cannot get tired of this place as the food is so good and refined.  One of the best Belgian food in DC and, probably,  my prefered restaurant in DC. The mussels and beef stew are worth a try if not familiar.   Be aware that street parking is not always easy, the restaurant is often packed and the acoustic not the best! More...

My family and I had an absolutely wonderful dinner here this past weekend. Had to dock a star because the tables in the back are too tight, making for lots of awkward comings and goings of patrons. But truly, that is the only negative thing I would say about the experience. The menu is stellar, and it was incredibly tough to pick something to eat. Ultimately everyone was very pleased with their dishes. Highlights included the grilled octopus special (covered in BBQ sauce - don't knock it 'til you try it), the beef stew, and their award-winning mussels, which were so plump and flavorful. Fries were to perfection. Even the water glasses were pleasurable.Go for the Merveilleux dessert. It's so light and fluffy.Next time, I'd ask to be sat in the front dining room instead of in the back. More...

My boyfriend took me here after the rainiest half marathon in the entire world. I was literally running thru 20-yards of water up to my ankles in non-stop rain. After I was all showered and changed I needed to refuel. I wanted something comforting - French onion soup, mussels, croque monsieur, eggs Benedict so I thought of Et Viola. It's a narrow, simply decorated Belgian restaurant in the Pacific Palisades. I had the croque monsieur. The size of the sandwich was larger than my face served with  a side salad (they all come with that). My boyfriend had the salmon eggs benedict. They were both très bien! Rich, creamy and delicious! The server was very attentive. She had my numerous mimosas out to me in two-minutes. For dessert we shared the lemon crepes, very tangy and light. A nice dessert to end the meal. Easily 5 stars!

It's one of these Sundays when we hadn't made any plans but felt that a brunch would be nice to have. So remembered this place from a recent list in the WPost of recommended brunch places in DC so decided to go there. It's a neighborhood restaurant in the Palisades area, not metro accessible but if you drive there is off street parking. The restaurant has a small, unassuming facade, and pleasant, contemporary decor. There is a bar area in front with a few high tables. Dining area in the back is divided, right side is long and narrow, left side has a squarish room that can be closed off for private events - which today had a party of about 15 - and the kitchen plus another dining section in back. We were seated in the narrow dining room at a two top along one wall, with a view of the private room through a window. A nice space as I generally dread being seated at two tops that are set in a tight parallel row like the banquettes on the other side. The place was quite full by 12:30 pm and had a nice, happy atmosphere. The menu had a number of egg dishes - we tried the eggs Benedict with salmon, and eggs gratin bechamel, both came with a very fresh salad and were well prepared and tasty, the gratin was interesting as I'd never had it before, with a layer of sliced hard boiled eggs. The desserts were disappointing for me - would have been good if they had at least some kind of cake. That aside, this place is a good find, for everyday dining as well as small group functions.

This is an authentic feeling Euporean place. Went for brunch. I misordered (eggs gratin bechamel) and thought my meal was just okay, but the rest of our groups' meals looked yummy. Totally had food envy over the meurette eggs! We also got the rabbit terrine to share and it was tasty, also not something I would traditionally order. Coffee was great, but this American was disappointed there were no free refills. Overall I'd love to go back and try something else. More...

I love Et Voila so much! I love Belgian food and I get nostalgic every time I eat real Belgian fries. Et Voila is probably my favorite Belgian restaurant in D. C. Street parking is usually available, but in the evenings there's room around the area as well. Making a reservation is definitely a good idea, since despite their expansion, the restaurant is still pretty small. I've been several times now, and everything has been absolutely delicious. Most recently, I started with a Lindemans Peach lambic. They have a decent selection of beers, a lot of bottles and then about three on tap. You should get a good Belgian beer! They also have wine and cocktails. We had a cheese platter as the appetizer, which was really nice. It came with five different types of cheese (I think my favorite was the Chimay - brie-like), cheese puffs, nuts, and dried apricots. I loved it.For my main course I had the braised lamb, which was heavenly. I adore lamb and this dish was so tender and pretty big, which was great. The cavatappi that it came with was really great in the sauce, and I loved dipping the bread that comes at the beginning of the meal into the sauce too. I also got a side of fries, because how can I possibly resist? They're really good, they have this TASTE that reminds me of the friteries in Belgium, I can't explain it. Dip them in mayo for the authentic Belgian experience. To end our meal, I had a merveilleux, which is a meringue-based dessert. Their merveilleux is raspberry and chocolate and it is incredible. So sweet and tart while being super light and fluffy.Every time I've been to Et Voila it's been stellar and I leave feeling not just full, but happy! More...

Et Voila Restaurant can have a hundred great restaurants within a two mile radius. It doesn't matter. Et Voila competes with itself and maintains excellent food, wine and service. Even though it is considered a lovely Washington restaurant, we, neighbors in the Palisades, consider it a neighborhood restaurant.Et Voila is like that. It is intimate, consistent and always, a surprise. It remains the same but always changes. The quality and service are consistently exceptional. The food is delicious and interesting. And the wine list, that has a varying price range, never ceases to interest, surprise and educate me.  Yes can choose to have a simple burger (try the mussel burger and fries) or more elegantly (try the sole or halibut). When in doubt, you can always have the mussels, fries and a delicious Belgium beer. But one is never disappointed. The creativity, care and consistent quality is worth the visit and more.So even though there are so many great restaurants within a two mile radius, Et Voila only competes with itself.
