Le Voltaire Ratings and Reviews
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!

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.

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.
