    Our waitress was out standing last night. I had the coq a van (sp?) and  my daughter had the steak. Both were absolutely excellent. The appetizer of bruschetta was amazing and chocolate mousse for dessert! :-) It was a great experience

    We have eaten at Le Voltaire several times. The food is always good and was again this visit. The foie gras frais was mouth watering. We would probably eat there more often but the menu is always the same. My wife did order the special - the Peruvian pheasant which was very good. The ambience isn’t the best as tables are so close to each other. It’s hard not to hear the conversation next to you. This night in particular we were seated next to the bar and we heard bar noise and employee conversations all evening which did distract from our night out. The food is worth the price, the ambiance is not.

    Dear LeeG, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We're thrilled you enjoyed our cuisine. We apologize for the ambiance and noise concerns. We'll work to ensure a better experience next time, specifically regarding seating options. We hope to welcome you back soon. Best regards, Le Voltaire Staff

    LeVoltaire is one of our favorite restaurants. My filet was grilled perfectly, medium rare, and the seafood special was delicious. Their escargot with cheese is one of the best in town. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Lisa, our server, was personable, knowledgeable, and timed our courses so we were not hurried. Our beverages were served in a timely manner. The atmosphere is more intimate than many of the restaurants in Omaha. LeVoltaire has a varied menu with many entrees you won’t find on other menus.

    Our adult kids treated us to dinner for herself's birthday. Although it was almost a full house over Valentine's weekend, Lisa made certain the service continued to be superb. She again made me a perfect "Lisatini" along with an odd cocktail for my son. The escargot were hot and bubbly with butter as usual -- great for dipping the French bread. All four of us enjoyed great entrees and chocolate mousses for dessert.

    While Nebraska is known for its steak restaurants, the best restaurant is actually Le Voltaire. Without a doubt, it was the best, cleanest, and most wholesome meal that my spouse and I have had in Omaha. I HIGHLY recommend, and their wine list is pretty good, too.

    It was her "xx"th birthday. When we arrived, Lisa had a large tulip on the table. (Lisa was off work this evening.) In her stead, Angie gave the superb service one expects at Le Voltaire. My regular appetizer, escargot, was delicious as usual as was the lamb shank entree.. She had the shrimp and scallop pasta special which was excellent. For dessert, we shared a chocolate mousse, always rich and tasty. Angie informed us that Lisa was providing the dessert!!! While we arrived early, by the time dessert came, all seats were taken in the main dining room. reservations are essential. We wil return soon.

    Excellent as always. Service beyond excellent. Courses were served when you were finished with the prior one. Nice and rela ed. Food was excellent. Coq au vin is just the best. Very unusual as with white wine. Chef/owner came out and it's obvious he takes pride in his cuisine. Stop by every time im in omaha. Prices very reasonable for quality and quantity.

    Finally visited this gem of a restaurant! The staff accommodated our shifting arrival time with grace. Lisa, our server, confessed that it was her first evening on duty; the only sign of that was some understandable nervousness on her part. She was attentive and efficient and non-intrusive and supremely helpful -- to the point of running after us into near-freezing temperatures to bring leftovers that I had forgotten on the table! And the leftovers were delicious. Old school classics were sumptuously done, with just the right details and depth of flavor (including the garlicky, slightly liverish sausage and the unctuous duck leg confit in the cassoulet). The wine list is impressive but accessible, with well-chosen options by the glass. I should have come here a long time ago. I will make up for that oversight with frequent return visits. (Side note: We had visited the Julia Child exhibit at The Durham Museum that afternoon. This was the perfect conclusion to the day.)

    Le Voltaire is my favorite restaurant in Omaha. The food is always great. The servers are friendly and always keep an eye on if I need more water, or another drink and they check up on if everything is to my liking. I used them for my daughter's Baby shower and they did a fabulous job. It was beautiful. The event was a huge success. I received compliments about Le Voltaire from everyone who attended.

    Yet again, Lisa proved why she is the very best server in Omaha. We are not there very often, but on our arrival, she prepared my martini, placed the order for my escargot, and confirmed my lamb shank entree. All I had to do was just nod my head. Herself enjoyed the seafood special thoroughly. My lamb shank was the best I have had in this country and very meaty. We shared a great special dessert cheesecake. We will return soon and hopefully more often. Yes, we have recommended Le Voltaire to friends who also enjoyed it.

    Overall a great atmosphere, friendly and responsive staff. Loved the half-price wine night on Tuesdays - we weren't expecting that! My only negative thought was about the Mahi Mahi special which I ordered. It sounded wonderful when the meal was described but was very bland and a little dry when it arrived. The presentation was nice and it looked like it would be delicious but nothing stood out. Very little seasoning. I wish I had gone with my gut and ordered the Beef Bourguignon which I have heard is amazing. We also had the cauliflower soup (delicious) and the shrimp escargot (fantastic). The French bread was delicious dipped into the butter garlic sauce on the escargot. This was our first visit and we'll definitely go back.
