We are longtime diners at Le Voltaire and appreciate both the food and service the restaurant offers. There is, however, a notable lack of ambiance as the tables are far too closely arranged for private conversation. Our most recent meal was a special Saturday evening dinner and our overall rating is down some from past years. Le Voltaire is now on our list of very good options in Omaha, but no longer a special place. It has become too casual in comparison with similarly priced competitors. Few gentlemen customers, for example, wear jackets. Many wear shorts and Hawaiian shirts. A modest dress code might help. Otherwise, drop the prices and call it a French diner.

The service was top notch! Our server was informed and there when we needed her but not bothersome. The food was tasty and the proportions were adequate. Specials with wine on Tuesday nights was a plus! Give it a try and have something you don't normally have a home.

Best French onion soup I’ve ever had. Sadly, the “best filet in Omaha” was over cooked and dry. (How can a filet be so dry??)

The waitress was no where to be found. Had to eventually flag her down when we needed to leave

For our anniversary, we wanted to try a restaurant we hadn’t been to before, something unique, so we chose Le Voltaire. Perfect choice! Our server, Nick, was very personable and attentive but not intrusive. The food and drinks were well prepared and delicious. We felt genuinely welcomed and were treated like special guests. We have found our new favorite restaurant and look forward to returning soon.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary. We requested Lisa as our server, a 4 top for plenty of room at the table, and were pleased with the results. The dinner special was outstanding, the wine pairing was superb. The only complaint we had was in regard to a couple of other tables with very LOUD patrons making themselves heard, though no fault of the restaurant.

I am running out of ways to say how absolutely great Le Voltaire is! We were there Friday, June 21, for my xxth birthday. Lisa poured a superb martinus (singular for martini) as "herself" allowed me only one. As always my favorite appetizer, the escargot was most tasty as I also used the bread to soak up the butter and parsley. My 8oz filet was perfect (as usual). Her salmon gave its life for a noble cause. The desserts were great. All at a total price well below so many Omaha "greats". With the superb food and fabulous service from Lisa, we will return often --- next in two weeks with family to celebrate a 50th anniversary.

First time to this restaurant and we were excited to try it. Waitress seemed to be new, but we give that a pass usually. Everybody has to start somewhere and what she didn't know she tried to find out. We started with appetizers of flatbread, seafood gratin, and cups of French onion soup. All were excellent, but don't eat too much bread or you'll regret it when the rest of the meal arrives! A salad followed and then our meals.
Two of us ordered the trout special, which was described as being prepared to similar to salmon (it was) but the server did not mention that it came with scallops and shrimp. Good thing we didn't have a shellfish allergy! I believe her description was provided to her, so I'm not sure I can fault her for not telling us unless she just plain forgot. That said, the trout with quinoa and shrimp and scallops, along with a spicy fruit salsa (which was mentioned!) was excellent. The other entree at the table was veal-the other special of the day. Sadly this was not great. The meat, while prepared to chef's recommended medium rare, was chewy. And not just one serving. Both were chewy. Veal should be very tender and it was not. It was only the sauce that made it tolerable.
We ended with chocolate mousse, crème brûlée, and French press coffee. MMMM, good!

Again, about what we expected at Le Voltaire: fabulous service by Lisa; great food; and super value. While we are only occasional visitors (distance), Lisa remembered my drink preferences. The escargot remains my always eat appetizer. Her sea bass with srimps led to "ooo"s and "yum"s. My lamb was most tasty. The dessert special of chocolate cheesecake with coffee ice cream made in the cafe was the perfect end to a perfect meal.
