Description: Tucked into a corner of Botetourt and & York Street, Voila, with it's soft lighting and eclectic decor, is a local gem. The restaurant sits tucked away in one of the city's oldest historic neighborhoods, complete with cobblestone streets and some of the few surviving antebellum houses on the side of the Elizabeth River. With a full bar and known for its three-course prix-fixe, Voila's menu features fresh ingredients & home-grown herbs. Voila boasts an impressive selection of international, French, & Greek dishes, incorporated together by the owners, Hampton Roads restaurateurs John & Maggie Tsouris. As well as Hand crafted cocktails concocted with vintage liqueurs and spirits, fresh squeezed juices and homegrown herbs. Voila is a local's favorite and must try authentic cuisine.

Champagne, escargot, small, dim lights, excellent food...what could be better for date night!
They have a $30 Fixe Prix menu daily in addition too the regular menu. We got the Norwegian salmon and Flatiron steak. Both of us totally cleaned our plates- unusual for me.
Hints: skip the oil & vinegar with bread, it is nothing special and heavy, the dinner is excellent so you will want it all. Don't order the French champagne that is offered by the glass- it is blah tasting. Spend the money on one of the unique dinner drinks that Voila champions instead.

By coincidence, we were in Norfolk for our anniversary and looking for a nice quiet place to celebrate. All the great reviews convinced us to give Voila a try. Beautiful, intimate atmosophere where we could actually have a conversation. Only about a dozen tables. Excellent service. Outstanding food and wine list. The menu is not extensive, but it doesn't need to be. You will find something you like, and each dish is on the menu because the chef wants to share it with you. I had the salmon and my wife and a very nice chicken and pasta dish. Every table had diners enjoying their food and their conversation. Can't go wrong with this choice.

The food is superb, cooked with care & imagination, but what really makes Voila stand out is the wine list. The same care that goes into the preparation of the food obviously went into the selection of the wines - our server had encyclopedic knowledge, & an obvious love, of wine.

A great little restaurant!

This is a small restaurant -- about a dozen tables and a bar. This is one of the things I like about Norfolk: lots of small, very good restaurants. I went here for a small (4 people) business dinner. Service was excellent, the noise level was acceptable for holding a conversation. Therestaurant is pleasantly furnished with bright colors. Menu is not huge, but there is enough variety to suit varied tastes; also specials are available. I enjoyed salmon that was layered on spinach in a pastry puff -- divine! ($22). Several salads, soups, and appetizers on the menu. I will be back to try other menu items.

Free parking in front of the restaurant. The Tide runs just in front of the restaurant parking lot, so a good option if you are at MacArthur Center, Tides Park, or the Sentara/EVMS area.
