The intimate tables lit with candles, the aroma of fresh baguettes, and the French background music are some elements which seem to transport you to France without ever leaving Omaha. Le Voltaire is West Omaha’s very own corner of France.

If you’re lucky, there’s extra baguette to take home.

The owner of Le Voltaire, Cedric Fichepain, is from the west suburbs of Paris, and he brought traditional French comfort cuisine with him. He and his wife Desarae have been perfecting their restaurant since 2001.

The food, however, is the main attraction. Coq au vin and boeuf bourguignon are two of the most popular classic dishes. Words can hardly describe the mind blowing food that exits their kitchen. The meat, cooked to perfection, seems to melt in one’s mouth. Whether you’re into duck, lamb, filet mignon, veal, or ribeye there is something there for everyone. For the quality of food, their prices are very reasonable. The desserts, especially the Creme Brûlée, are the perfect way to finish off any traditional meal.

The only aspect one may not be accustomed to while  dining at this establishment would be the length of the meal. In the French tradition, eating at a restaurant takes a few hours. They like to enjoy their dining experience and spend lots of time with friends. At Le Voltaire, they stick to this tradition at a less extreme level, they try and stay out of your way to let you enjoy your meal while also being accessible to refill waters and answer questions.

Quality food, atmosphere, and staff are the main components to a fabulous restaurant and all are present at Le Voltaire. This is the least expensive trip to France you’ll ever find.
