Just what we were looking for.

On a recent trip to Omaha for business, we realized we did have enough days to try so many highly rated restaurants. We decided to have a progressive dinner throughout the Old Market area.

We stopped in for a quick lunch, however, it was so relaxing we stayed to enjoy. A regular chatted with us and gave us her recommendations. Delicious food and great wine pairing.

We spent a pleasant sunny fall afternoon outside on the patio at La Buvette sipping some wine and enjoying some appetizer plates. They have a great variety of wines from around the world and excellent bread/appetizer selections. A fun people watching place ... a good place for a couple or to meet friends.

I can see why this place is on the top of Omaha's best patio lists. The scenery is great, the staff very quick and friendly. They also have many wine's from great region's that are very reasonably priced!

We haven't actually eaten here, we just went there to drink wine and we really liked the idea that you can buy any wine you want for way cheaper price compare to other restaurants! The waitress was really helpful and helped us to choose a really good wine!

Don't waste your time or money at this place. No matter how good the food might be when it is paired with completely sub par customer service - it's not worth it. There are plenty of great restaurants in Omaha that would love to have your business. La Bouvette couldn't care less about their customer experience.

For a unique selection of wines and out of the ordinary fresh cheeses...this is your place. I also had the prosciutto and melon as well as a red pepper soup which hit the spot! Romantic spot for dates at night

Genuine experience. Great food, unique atmosphere, and singular experience. Like no other in the world. Just weird and unexpected enough to be interesting- with spectacular food and wine. With a soundtrack to match- one night you'll hear 70's New York punk, the next- classical music- and Funk the next... Not to be missed.

An Old Market wonder….great food, great service and so very quaint. We walked from the Hyatt Old Market. If I lived in Omaha, I would go to La Buvette on a weekly basis. Everything on the menu is fabulous and well, the wine selection is top…you must go!

We've bee here several times for dinner and love the atmosphere! They have a wonderful wine selection, my husband found a wine he had just enjoyed in Peru the week before, and really good appetizers. The butter they serve with their bread is the best, so we bought some to bring home with us! Service is fine,you won't get a... More
