Le Voltaire Ratings and Reviews
We were in town to celebrate our anniversary and wanted a nice meal that wouldn't break the bank. We couldn't have made a better choice! The food was delicious with moderate portions at a reasonable price. The service was wonderful and prompt. I think we found our new "go to" place in Omaha!
We arrived a little early, but they seated us at our table as the place wasn't really busy. The waiter took an age to come over and get our drinks orders. Then it took a while to get the drinks and be able to order food. The prices were about what we expected.
The food was good. I had the mussels, my wife had beef bourgignon and then we split a dessert.
We had a groupon and the waiter forgot to remove the credit from the bill and processed our credit card for the full amount and then for the reduced amount. I will have to watch my account to ensure the correct amount gets charged.
Would I go back? I doubt it. The food is over priced, the service is only just OK.
Our favorite restaurant in Omaha! We lived in France for 2 years, so we’re happy to have authentic French cuisine in the west end of town. Nice atmosphere for a casual or special occasion meal. Just the right size. Just the right noise level. We always feel like the staff are quietly making sure everything is perfect for us. Predictably excellent food!
I was extremely disappointed on this visit. The waitress at times totally forgot us. Took forever to get her attention. Not enough help, therefore, she was making specialty drinks, as well as, serving. The specialty for the evening was beef tender and it was tough, hard to cut even with a steak knife. The noise level fluctuated from extremely loud to dull roar.
Great food as always. But the service really makes Le Voltaire special. The servers have been their for years and they know their stuff. Recommendation for the food and wine pairings are great. We have had all the servers over the past 9 years and were happy with them all.
My friend and I loved trying the menu bistro option and thoroughly enjoyed every course. Our bottle of beaujolais was reasonable and a perfect accompaniment to our dinner. The Beef Bourginon was incredible as was the pastry dessert and creme brulee. Our server was very helpful and attentive.
It was a perfect dinner to celebrate my friend's birthday. I will return soon so my husband can enjoy too! Thank you
If you want to experience French cuisine, this is the place to go. Loved that the service is spread out; your entrée wasn't served while you were still eating your salad or appetizers. While the meal wasn't "cheap", the quality and flavor of the food was worth every penny. We will definitely return!
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!!
