Wow! Another exceptional experience here. The food was flavorful, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The service was perfect, Elizabeth was warm, polite, knowledgeable, timely, and accommodating.
This wonderful experience was provided at an extremely reasonable price given the quality of food and service.

Unusually long wait to order drinks. We were seated rapidly per our open table reservation on a busy night. Our waitress asked for our drink order and we decided to get a bottle of wine. She filled our water glasses and brought the wine list and left. We watched her go back and forth to fill water glasses (not ours which we emptied), bring food to other diners, bring drinks to other diners, fill pitchers with water and ice, etc. before we hailed her after a half an hour. We were almost ready to leave. We felt invisible and insulted. She was apologetic and attentive after that. We've never had that happen before at this restaurant. The food was as awesome as usual.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and was our first visit. Very quiet atmosphere to hold a personal and romantic conversation. We started off with the combination appetizer and the escargot was fabulous. The seafood dishes were amazing with a nice, inexpensive paired wine and the service was excellent.

Le Voltaire is certainly a gem in Omaha. It has an incredible menu with incredibly authentic French cuisine. This was such a welcome experience, and made me feel at home. The service was outstanding, with servers going out of their way to make sure we were completely satisfied. Here you can dine in the typical French style, taking your time and savoring every bite. A truly lovely atmosphere and wonderful restaurant. Overall it was a perfect night!

Great to have a French restaurant in the region. We have gone many times. Very good wine list with affordable selections. Food is mostly bistro style. Maybe not quite as good as it used to be. But glad thy they have many customers.
I have been dining at Le Voltaire since ...
I have been dining at Le Voltaire since their opening. I can tell when Chef Fichpain is in the kitchen. This visit was disappointing for me. The Croque Monsoir was not authentic.
I expected toast with a brush of Dijon , ham and a bechamel sauce with Gruyere and Parmesan. Then placed under the broiler with a dusting of cheese until browned and bubbly. Instead the bread was not toasted, there was a light smear of bechamel on the Breaking, then ham with what looked and tasted like Colby/jack cheese.
This was lunch but should have been prepared correctly
My meal before this was also lunch. However, I asked about an item not on the menu and our server said no problem, we can prepare this for you. It was Duck Confit, and excellent. I would give that visit 5 stars, not this one.

The service was excellent, she was attentive and very knowledgeable about the wines and the food. She knew what wine we had when we were in last, I liked that. We couldn't remember the name but she knew. The Boulganise was fabulous much better than the time before. However, we remember shrimp and scallops in it and they were missing. Still tasty. The steak was cooked just right tasted very good. There was just the right amount of seasoning. The tomato Provencal was good too. The salad was awesome, love the dressing. The brie cheese appetizer was very good too. The Creme brulle dessert was very good too, perfect amount of burnt sugar on it. The ambiance was nice. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Reservation was honored at the chosen time. Greeted with warmth and professionalism. Great wine list, from reasonable to expensive. Even the reasonable wines were chosen with care. Wonder diversity in the menu. The food is prepared with care and talent. The service was impeccable, even on weekends.
Will return as soon as possible. One of, if not the best places in Omaha.

Had another wonderful dining experience at Le Voltaire, our go to place in Omaha for fine French inspired cuisine. My wagyu beef special was scrumptious but I should have stuck with the Chef`s choice of sides versus the risotto that was paired with another entree which I had opted for. Overall, we thought the dinner was very good. The foie gras appetizer and the escargot were absolutely to die for. We spent over 3 hours dining, with 3 bottles of wine (2 of which were brought by us even though they have a great wine list), for the 6 of us. The service was generally attentive, although there were times I thought we were forgotten, but I attribute that to them being very busy while we were there. I`d highly recommend this restaurant for foodies and those who love French cuisine!

Le Voltaire is always a wonderful experience. My wife and I have been going here for 8 years now--it was our first date actually. We got to know the owner, Cedric, and many of the staff quite well. Lisa you rock! So much so, we had our rehearsal dinner here and had a blast. To say the least, it became our special occasion go to restaurant. After being gone for 4 years and now back, our recent experience was just as amazing: excellent food, extensive wine list, and great service and Ambience. We look forward to Many more dining experiences at Le Voltaire.

This is a very good French restaurant. It is definitely catered toward the Midwest palate versus restaurants I've been to in other parts of the country. Still, no complaints. It was a great place for a celebratory dinner but would still be acceptable for a nice date night as their prices are reasonable. I appreciate the wine list sorted by regions. The charcuterie was particularly memorable. We will certainly be back.

Came with my husband to celebrate my Birthday and my friends to celebrate their Anniversary.
Food and wine were good and once it thinned out a bit it was not so noisy.
Been here many times and always enjoy the service and wait staff.

Le Voltaire has been one of our favorite dining spots for years. Always cooked to perfection, and very reasonably priced (assuming you don't go overboard on the specialty cocktails/wine). I ordered the appetizer (norwegian salmon) + entree (filet) and loved it. Unfortunately there was no room for dessert, but the creme brulee is ordinarily a must-have.

Le Voltaire is our favorite Omaha restaurant. Even though it is casual, as in a bistro, the French cuisine is exquisite. There is a in-depth well priced wine list. This time we enjoyed crab/crawfish cakes, shrimp/scallop coquilles and the mahi mahi special. Delicious!
