Le Voltaire Ratings and Reviews
We really liked the food and the wine at Le Voltaire and our waitress was awesome! The only downside to this restaurant is that the dining room was very very hot. Their air conditioner can't keep up with the heat from the kitchen and it's very uncomfortable! This is the kind of restaurant that we would normally linger over wine and then have coffee and dessert but we were so hot after our hot entrées that we left as soon as we could! I had already made reservations for our dinner club to have dinner there, but sadly, I will be changing the restaurant. It will just be too hot at the end of June! Hopefully will be able to come back in the fall or winter.
This was a wasted Saturday night meal. The service was poor. The veal was tough. The Burgundy wine was very good, but expensive. We will not try again. There are many very good to excellent places to eat in Omaha. This one did not measure up.
We went to Le Voltaire to celebrate a family birthday, and had an outstanding overall experience. The food was outstanding, and the atmosphere inviting. The noise level was moderate, and allowed easy private conversation. The wine selection was excellent. Service was also excellent. It's a great place for personal dining, as well as business occasions.
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.
It just gets better and better! I come to Omaha each May and Le Voltaire is our restaurant of choice for our first dinner. It truly is a french bistro in Omaha - table cloths, french cuisine and a wonderful Bistro Prix Fixe option (which we always do).
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!!
Great food, great service!! I had the pheasant, absolutely amazing!!! My wife had the shrimp & scallops, also amazing!!! Prices we're inline with the food and the service, recommend Le Voltaire to anyone wanting an amazing dinner at a reasonable price!!
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.
