Le Voltaire Ratings and Reviews
It was with great expectations that we returned to dine. Our first experience was exceptional. Not the case on return. It seemed as if there was no leadership at the restaurant during the dinner period.
We were seated and remained at the table for over 20 mins until a server greeted us. Our drink order was not able to be filled due to the bar being out of a well drink.
Dinner arrived - both were of the same order - with one being noticeably colder than the other.
No, nothing mentioned to the server as the frustrations from the evening had built up. Too good of a restaurant for this experience to happen.

I have been going since 2010 and this place has never disappointed and that is after living in western Germany for three years. Nick is one of the best waiters I have ever had and, like the food, he is consistently awesome. Prices are very fair....appetizer, meal, desserts and coffees for 70....no alcohol though
Le Voltaire is our very favorite Omaha restaurant. It is a quiet French bistro in a strip mall in west Omaha. Cedric Fichepain, owner and chef, plus his knowledgeable friendly staff, make every visit feel like a special occasion. The food preparation and presentation are flawless, the nightly specials and other menu items are delicious and the wine selection is deep and reasonable.
Had the mussels. Shouldn't have. Never had dry mussels that looked and tasted like they had been sitting there for days and then they dumped some chicken broth on them and called them steamed. Everyone at the table agreed that they were truly awful and, of course, there were about 50 of them!!
Husband had steak with pate and morel sauce. He liked it.
Delicious, wonderful dinner. We had the baked brie and chocolate mousse in addition to our steak dinners - yum!! The service was a bit slow, but the staff was jumping and trying to keep up with the customers as best they could. At least they kept the drinks full. We will definitely go back!!
Our party of four was very pleased with everything we experienced.
My only problem is that I enjoy the beef stew so much that I will not try anything else on the menu.
This has become one of our favorite restaurants in a matter of 4 months.
Next time however, I will try the filet.
Voltaire is more expensive than it used to be, and the quality of the food remains more bistro than gourmet. It is no longer a good value for the money. Broad menu and wine list, which is good. Food not exceptional but now pricey. So we will go elsewhere for our next special occasion meal.
We've been wanting to try Le Voltaire for a while now and finally decided far enough in advance to reserve a table on a Friday night.
Our bottle of wine was the most expensive thing we ordered and it was worth every sip. If you love wine, don't think twice about trusting their selections and descriptions.
We both ordered the bistro menu, so we were able to try a few different things. Sorry, I don't recall the French names of our selections. I tried the flatbread with duck confit and brie and was blown away. The combinations of flavors with the ginger was amazing. My husband had the escargot and I tried a couple and they were spot on. Buttery and cheesy and piping hot. We also ordered the frites (fries) and they were so crispy and great.
The salads were nice with the added touch of almonds and bleu cheese.
For our entrees, I had the lamb shank which fell off the one and my husband had a dish that had duck confit and sausage on sauerkraut with a mustard sauce. He loved it.
For dessert, we had espresso and he had the creme brulee, which was perfect. I had the pot de creme, which was chocolate that day and it was unbelievable. The rich dark chocolate was like a bowl full of the middle of a truffle.
Considering the bottle of wine we ordered, the check was a nice surprise. I would say that for the level of quality food you will get, which was superior in every way, the value is phenomenal.
Don't wait to discover this gem.
The ambiance was great. It had a small, cozy vibe and was a perfect setting for date night. Unfortunately the meal wasn't nearly as good as the atmosphere. Our server was quite poor, but it appeared that other servers were doing a much better job. We started off with the duck confit flatbread, and it was average at best. The flatbread was borderline soggy. I had the lamb shank for my entrée and it was also disappointing. It was really fatty and over cooked. The best part of my main dish was the mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. We had the bread pudding for dessert and it was good, but not good enough to save the rest of the meal. I would be willing to give this place another try, but I wouldn't recommend it to a friend based on my experience.
