Le Voltaire Ratings and Reviews
The shrimp & scallop special was great and the steak with peppercorn sauce was tremendous.
The bottle of Bordeaux was wonderful. The salad that comes with the entree was a disappointment, we will order one of their great soups next time. We will definitely be back.
Food was good, my wife had the fish special and a glass of wine she really enjoyed and I had the Veal (it was a bit tough), the flavor of my plate was great and the deserts were wonderful. A little warm in the room on a Saturday night, but overall good ambiance. Nick was an excellent waiter.
Normally our dinners at Le Voltaire are some of the best in town. This was not one of those times. My wife had the waygu flank steak as a special menu order, and it was tough and not very good. The other three people had the veal scallopini, which normally you can cut with a fork, not this night. Hopefully, we will have better luck next time.
Went there to celebrate a birthday. Staff attentive but not overbearing. Orders came out exactly as requested. French onion soup delicious. Salads with entrees were delicious too, especially with french bread & butter. Veal medallions beautifully prepared with a light mushroom sauce over a bed of mashed potatoes & fresh broccolini and carrots. Others at my table enjoyed mussels and steak frite equally. Chocolate mousse and cream puffs with ice cream & chocolate ganache ended the meal. We will definitely return!!
Only problem was the ambiance. Noise level made it impossible to carry on a conversation. This is not usually the case here. They were having problems with the cooling system. Don't know if it was the extremely hot day that made it impossible for them to cool down the front of the restaurant or what, but they put as many people as possible in the back dining area which was cooler. Won't keep me from going back though. The food is definitely worth it! Always a favorite!!
Everything was excellent, food, service, wine, ambiance, . . . . except the climate. It was unbelievably warm, no, it was plain hot in the main dining room. Overheard waitstaff reference the temp to be 86 degrees. Phew. We felt wafts of cool air at times, but nothing close to what was needed to make it comfortable. This was unfortunate. We have dined here many times in the past, never has it been uncomfortably warm, or cold for that matter. Will go back in cooler weather.
It is a long drive for us, but well worth it for a 48th anniversary. As always, everything thing was "in-between" --- fantastic and superb! The server was absolutely perfect from recommendations to small touches. As for the food, each and every bite was exceedingly delicious for both of us. The "Bistro Menu" of an appitizer, entree, and dessert is a great value. I had the escargot, veal, and special dessert of the night. She had watermelon gapachio soup, a shrimp and scallop special, and chocolate mousse. All were magnificent!
Discovered they have a smaller place at their bakery in Papillion much closer to us. We plan to go there often and to this location as often as we can.
Everything on the menu is a great value as prices are most reasonable for such a gret restaurant.
Lunch is wonderful only open Thursday and Fridays. The French Onion Soup and a salad is
a great lunch. Or try my favorite Croque Madame.
The desert I had last week was the Teriamsu, which was special. Real keeper. Can't go wrong if you order Steak frites à la Parisienne, there frites are the best in Omaha.
Besure to ask for Lisa or Nic.
Our recent meal at LaVoltaire may be the best meal we've had in Omaha. We've enjoyed meals at Avoli in Dundee, the Flat Iron downtown and the Grey Plume in Mid Town. We have found that some of the flavours at two of these (not the Flat Iron) to be a bit unbalanced whereas the flavours and the preparation of the food at LaVoltaire were spot on. We have nothing bad to say about the restaurant and we will definitely return.
We celebrated a birth for one of us! The food was outstanding and we thoroughly the evening. Our only complaint was the table of four next to our table was very loud and we did not appreciate the volume of their voices. They seemed to be competing with the other tables.
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.
