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 started at the La Buvette for drinks and an appetizer. We all ordered the caprese salad and loved the... read more

The service was poor. We waited ages for our food and when it arrived my order was incorrect: the ham was missing from my hot sandwich. The waiter had actually asked me if I wanted ham but he forgot to order it. As I was driving I decided to drink coffee rather than wine. I was informed that there was... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have been too. Great fresh food, simple ingredients, well sourced and taken care of with excellent wine and good service!

I was in town for the Berkshire AGM. The town was crazy. The Buvette was a retreat. The menu was interesting and changed daily. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was great and the price reasonable. It was a welcome change from the banquet meals at the investment dinners and the steaks that have prevailed on this trip.

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
