Voilet in Santa Monica -- report

Had high hopes for this place, but while the food was good-to-acceptable, it still was something of a disappointment. I don't think they carry off well the concept of "only small plates". Some were quite good -- the small portion of ravioli and the sauteed spinach -- but some less so: mussels, the sauces with the french fries, the salmon.

A part of me can't help think that this "small plates only" approach amounts to a way to pad the bill. The server suggests at least 2-3 plates per person. Add it up and you spend at least as much per person as you would at a restaurant with far better food, served in the conventional way of appetizer, main course, sides.
