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 had dinner here several times before and never disappointed. This visit we were with another couple to celebrate my husband's birthday. The meal was excellent and the waitress put a candle in my husband's dessert which made it very special.

I've been here before with my school in high school for French class. I decided to bring my fiance for our 4 year dating anniversary, and it was a wonderful experience. The lunch special is amazing value for the price. Everything was good, and the waitress was prompt and courteous.

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!

Just the two of us for Friday lunch. As usual, Lisa greeted us by name. This time, we did not stay with our "regular" food choices: I tried the French Onion soup which was fabulous with lost of bread, cheese, and onions. My beef burgundy included small potatoes, carrots, onion, along with very tender cubes of beef. She had the Croque Madame, an open faced sandwich with ham, cheese, sauces, and an egg. As we have come to expect at Le Voltaire, everything was most tasty. We split a small lemon tart for dessert.
Even with a large (25+) group in the back room, our food came quickly. As others arrived in the main room, the two very busy servers maintained their usual high level of service.
Yes, we plan to return often.

The food was good, but not great. Our server was good. The ambience and feel of the place was "generic". No atmosphere at all.

As always, Le Voltaire is always a delight and never disappoints. My wife and I had the duck, my daughter the Bouillabaisse de Marseille. My entire party was pleased. Le Voltaire remains an Omaha treasure.

One of my favorite restaurants in Omaha. Unpretentious French country cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. I've had both regular menu items and specials and all have been terrific. It's always hard for me to pass up the cassoulet with the succulent duck confit. The wine list is extensive and prices are reasonable. As a romantic/special occasion restaurant, I don't think its value can be beat. Highly recommended!

Great experience at this restaurant. I went here to celebrate my nieces birthday. It was her first time at a French restaurant and it didn't disappoint. I enjoyed the bouillabaisse and fois gras while she had the coq au vin. We would recommend any of these.

This place is the definition of authentic. The ambiance and food transported me across the Atlantic. We tried appetizers and desserts as well as the main dish and was not disappointed at any point in the meal. This is the perfect place for a date night or a if you want to show off a classy side of Omaha. I definitely plan to go again.

I have been there several times before. This was a date night with my wife of 40 years. They did not fail. It is an awesome place whether it is business or a special occasion. I think the best thing to do is to order about 8 appetizers and call it dinner for two.

Lunch on Friday. Table was ready. As always, Lisa’s service was absolutely superior. Her omelet was stuffed with a hugh stack of delicious ham and cheese. My escargot appetizer was perfect with a lot of garlic butter for dipping the bread from the bakery next door. The grilled lamb again showed why I order it when available. Overall, a “routine lunch” became a superb experience.
