Food, service and ambience were fantastic. It was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. Although everything was good, be sure to try the French onion soup and the ratatouille!

I am beginning to sound like the proverbial broken record when I write about Le Voltaire. After the last six years of superb food and service, we now expect that every visit. If anything has changed, it is for the better. On her birthday, there was a flower waiting at "our" table. The best waiter in Omaha, Lisa, greeted us by name, asked if I wanted by usual martini, and told us of the specials. The birthday girl ordered a fish special which was "wonderful". I had the rack of lamb special --- truly superior presentation. and flavor. We finished with almost sinfully delicious desserts. As always, Lisa's service was absolutely fantastic. And, on this night, Le Voltaire was the most crowded we have ever seen. Yes, we do recommend it to friends and they also rave about the food and service. We shall return.

We came to your restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. This place is a neighborhood gym with excellent service and knowledgeable Sommelier. Top wine list and excellent food. Escargot was very nice. Duck was cooked to perfection and Steam with bourbon pepper sauce was amazing. We will be back!

Food was very good. I wish it was located in a stand-alone building (instead of a strip mall anchored by a grocery store) and that the interior decor was more elaborate and immersive. It was my first time there and this was a business lunch with clients from New York and Houston. Had I been there before I would not have chosen this restaurant for those reasons.

Everything was great, but forgot Ratatouille and also charged blue cheese and almonds on each salad when the server said it comes with it.

Treated a 96 year old friend to lunch. Le Votaire was our first choice by far. As always, everything was better than perfect. Lisa greeted me by name as we entered. Our guest asked for scotch while Lisa made a tasty bloody mary for me. Our guest ordered the special vegatable quiche; my wife, an omelet; I had the noon escargot appitizer (three of them) and the lamb. All three of us thoroughly enjoyed the meal. At Lisa'a suggestion, we tried the dessert of the day --- her favorite --- lemon tart.
No place in Omaha has better service! That is why we return often. Only wish Le Voltaire was about 20 miles closer to our house!

My wife and I always enjoy LaVoltaire. The atmosphere is intimate- not ‘fancy’. More casual. Service is quick and efficient. Waiters are very accommodating and helpful. We each had their fish special- which was truly wonderful. No fishy flavor- tasty and seasoned just right so it almost melted in your mouth. The veggies were also wonderful - cooked so they were a little crunchy which is how I like them!! Had a cup of French Onion soup that was out of sight! Could have made a meal out of it alone by having a howl, the onions, cheese, and seasonings were tantalizing and filling! It was a wonderful meal!

The food was exceptional as usual the service was good. However we usually have Lisa as our waitress and we opted to sit in the back room as it was more quiet and less hectic there. My husband enjoys a more quiet atmosphere. therefore we did not have Lisa as our waitress, and I don’t believe our waitress gave her name, she was fine but she was no Lisa!

I travel to countries of Europe ( to include France) a lot, so I’m accustomed to quality French cuisine. The food here was fair imho. Also, there wasn’t anything “fancy “ or even interesting in the way the dishes were was presented. The biggest disappointment though was the seating arrangement. My table was arranged such that the back of my chair was, unfortunately, along the path of staff traffic. So each time a server or host would pass by they would bump into me without any care.

We have never been disappointed with the cuisine at Le Voltaire. Recently we were in
Monterey at an expensive well rated restaurant and we thought Le Voltaire's filet had
more flavor. My date had the soup du jour and it was so full of flavor.

Le Voltaire is the real deal. Even the employees stay forever. And don't forget their french
bakery next door. Love those eclairs!
