Le Voltaire Ratings and Reviews
Le Voltaire has been one of our favorite ...
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!

My wife and I had dinner here as part of our celebration of several life events. Server made no inquiry to this as our experiences as often occurs with most of times we attend similar establshiments. While this was dissapointing it was not necessary to our enjoyment. As we were celebrating we sampled dishes from the menu as well as chef special and wine. As a couple we have been to most of the finer and "foodie" restaurants in omaha as well as enjoy dining throughout our travels which I mention for our point of reference. Our experience was hit and miss. There were some plusses such as some of the charcuterie options, wine list and the dessert, but for the most part the food was not as impressive as reviews have indicated. We actually believe the prices were reasonable. Ambiance was nothing special which in part is due to location in a west omaha shopping strip. While we may dine here in the future it would be more due to convenience as in my opinion there are several better options of French influence in Omaha.

Arriving early for our reservation,we were warmly welcomed and seated. The hostess answered our questions about the food and wine. The steamed fish, shrimp and mussels were in a delicate paper wrap and garnished by colorful vegetables. The Alsaceian wine was a perfect compliment. The ambiance was European cozy and comfortable. We hope to return.

The chef went out of his way to prepare a dish for my husband without dairy products. My husband loved it. So appreciative of restaurants who go the extra mile to accommodate food allergies. Always a great experience there!

Our first visit to Le Voltaire was overall rather positive and we will make a return visit at some point. We wanted to try Le Voltaire for lunch before trying it for dinner. There was only one person doing the seating and waiting tables during this particular afternoon, which is probably why we had to ask for some bread after our meal had been served. On our next visit we definitely would not want to sit at one of the smaller tables along the wall, we could overhear conversations on both sides of us which made our experience a bit crowded.

Le voltaire is one of our favorite places in Omaha. We try to go often as it is a great
value and the food is outstanding. They are so accommodating and friendly.
I would and have recommended Le Voltaire to many people.
They never disappoint.

For my birthday (don't ask which one). Le Voltaire's service is absolutely superb. Lisa, a longtime server, was fabulous as always. The "Menu Bistro" offers an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $34. The escargot were delicious; the salmon died for a great cause; and, the chocolate mousse was most tasty. We will return even though it is a bit distant from our home.

After going to French restaurants in New York, I expected to be disappointed by this one. After all, how could a small French restaurant in Omaha compare to ones in New York City? I must say that I was impressed. The atmosphere was lovely, and the food was exquisite. The service was attentive. I didn't expect a restaurant like this to sit well with a younger child, but my waiter made sure that the youngest child with us was well taken care of, offering more kid-friendly dipping sauces as a substitute for what would typically be an adult meal anywhere else. The wine list is impressive, and many of the wines are imported. I've been to places with large selections of not very good alcohol, but the wines offered were of the finest. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone for any occasion.
Wife's 40th Birthday
I wanted to try a new place for my wife's 40th birthday. Le Voltaire was fantastic. The food was reasonably priced and quite good. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing. Although I am not a drinker, they had an extensive wine list. Our reservations were for 8, but we were there about a 1/2 hour early. They seated us right away.
All in all, this was a great experience. Highly recommended.
The Pain plat de Corse appetizer is amazing. I ordered the Steak frites à la Parisienne as my entrée and my husband ordered the Bouillabaisse de Marseille for his. We both thoroughly enjoyed them. Since we were celebrating, we ordered the dessert du jour to share and it was heavenly. The wine list is very extensive and that made it hard to choose!

Been to Le Voltaire twice now and neither time did they disappoint. Atmosphere is inviting. Service is warm, friendly and efficient. Food is absolutely spot on. Whether specials or menu items you can do no wrong. Looks like we'll be back for thirds!
Made a wonderful anniversary even better
We really enjoyed our dinner and the whole evening , making our 36 anniversary a very special occasion. Once again you made our special night memorable. I had the salmon in parchment which was moist and delicious. My husband had the filet in wine sauce which was melt in your mouth perfect. Dessert is always a must to top off a wonderful meal. Highly recommend
My opinion has a certain Je ne sais quois.....
I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it's that I expected more - maybe the person who recommended it to me and the YELP and other reviews were too hyped. The ambience/ feel of a place is very important to me and I thought it was lacking (we sat in the back room not the front part, and the front part may have had more of a "french dining" feel). I also notice the small details - like the restrooms - and the ladies room and the hallway to it could use some work. Overall thought, I had a nice time. The food was lovely. The wine was excellent and our server was OUTSTANDING! I would go back, but it won't become a "regular" place for me.
Delicious food, loved the atmosphere!
My husband (who is natively French) and I went here for a date on Friday night. We very much enjoyed the experience over all. All of the food was delicious and the atmosphere was cozy. We would highly recommend this place, and will likely bring his parents here next time they visit!
One member of a couple and I share a birthday so we try to have dinner. Le Voltaire is a wonderful choice with a good variety of menu choices, plus interesting specials. I brought wine and their corkage is reasonable. This is a great place for people who want to enjoy good food along with each other's company.
All you want from france
As usual the food was excellent, the menu did not have specials that night as it is being changed for the spring and summer menu. The service was great and the wine selection is very good. All you like from France with the friendly midwest touch. Our server was knowledgeable and gve us excellent attention.
