Sympathique little bistro!

This charming bistro-épicerie is to be found in the Old Market section of Omaha. The walls are covered with wines, spirits and delicacies of all kinds. The menu is short and the simple. Good charcuterie and rillettes that goes well with the outstanding home-made breads. The Lapin à la Moutarde... read more

I have been here many times, and we usually love this place, though the waiters are not always that pleasant, this was a special night of horror. The night started off with a very rude male waiter, who I asked about combining a couple tables together, and without even stopping to communicate, said, "that is not possible" and kept walking...

La Buvette pretends to be a French cafe, particularly with what it assumes to be Parisian service. In truth, the service is hostile, incompetent and scornful. We waited fo 15 minutes to receive a menu, another 20 to order and another to be told they were out of stew. No apologies, no suggestions and no answer as to why we... More

Initially frosty waitress but lovely location and after a couple of good bottles of malbec a very pleasant evening. Service was good not exceptional. Range of wine reasonable and prices good. Great people watching spot.

Every time we return to Omaha to visit family, we eat dinner at La Buvette the night of our arrival. The food and service are excellent and we enjoy their wine selection. We would highly recommend La Buvette!!

Great atmosphere, interesting food selections, many wine options! We got our wine quickly, and then we leisurely picked an appetizer. The cheese plate was fabulous. Then more wine and another shared appetizer. It was wonderful to slowly enjoy the food drink and atmosphere. They did not hurry you. Wonderful! Ended up there 2 nights in a row during our weekend...

Popped in during the farmer's market--nice atmosphere but strangely hostile and uninformative service--server offered no menus or way to find out what was possible to order. We were pleasant and undemanding, and ordered (sloshed into the saucer) coffee and got out ASAP. Don't know what we did wrong to merit such treatment.

Our food took forever when we ordered a salad and soup, and the manager came over when we complained to the server that the soup was cold and she went back and promptly made a rude sarcastic comment about the customer to the server within our hearing! Not a good experience and very nasty soup. Not a romantic time when... More

I will admit the menu options on the day of our visit, were a bit disappointing. We had heard so much of this place and looked forward to eating there. So when I saw the menu, I was let down. I know the menu changes daily so I am confident that on another day I would have liked the choices... More
