Sidewalk tables, lovely small dishes, great wine

We had a great experience here, had a lovely sidewalk table, shared several small plates, took recommendations on wine and lingered just to enjoy the space. It had the feel of authentic old market with the European market vibe. I'd come back again and again.

There's a trick to eating here. You have to go here prepared to relax, spend some time, have a glass of wine, read a book....have a bottomless two buck cup of coffee....because the service is like the French & incredibly slow. BUT....great food. Lovely atmosphere. The waiters are not French, they just act French. There's heated seating outside, and if... More

Always like visiting this small but unique place in the Old Market when visiting Omaha. I've been visiting it for several years for the unique ambiance, sidewalk eating/drinking in the warm months and a cozy getaway in the cold months. Our server seemed to be having a bad day and was not friendly, AT ALL, but still, each of us... More

La Buvette is one of those few restaurants and drinking establishments that is so different from most of what you find in Omaha. If you are looking for a small, cozy getaway with a lot of character and very tasty food and a wide selection of wine, then La Buvette is for you. However, beer drinkers be warned. Your sensibilities... More

I loved my first visit to this cozy winebar and restaurant. Food menu is small but tasty. The small "pantry" selling gourmet treats also is well worth a look. And the wine selection is excellent. By the glass wine list is long and reasonably priced. What's not to like?

Always an epicurean adventure. Cheese plate changes constantly and always impresses. The duck breast was simply fantastic! Oh so tasty and I'm not a huge duck fan. The gorgonzola fig terrine might as well be dessert, so wonderful! The bread is great, fresh baked in house. And the wine selection and value is as good as you'll find anywhere! Service... More

Stopped in for lunch and enjoyed good service and food. Table was very small b the time we got main course had to move condiments, wine and water to floor to make room. Narrow street but still cars passed by occasionally which maybe at night might be annoying. Enjoyed what we had shared an Salad Caprese, Lasagna and Tagliatelle plus... More

Incredibly cool atmosphere with open air seating. Selection of wines is deep and varied, relects diverse wine regions, and menu is delicious (artisan cheeses). Prices were reasonable but there should be the option to split the bill if with a group.
