Had a quick lunch. Wife and I shared a Ceasar salad. It was huge with big chunks of chicken. Friends had some wine. Everything was very good including the service. But a bit pricey.

After visiting the Musée d’Orsay decided to stop at Le Voltaire for lunch and it was a great experience! Great service and good food! Tipically french!

Great food but horrible experience. The staff were the snobbiest group of people I have ever encountered. My family and I were literally sat down, given a menu and our order was taken, there was no other encounter with us. Our waiter never asked how...More

Ma'am, are you sure you didn't get the wrong sign? There are several signs of this name in the neighbourhood and I can hardly recognize the team you describe. We do not tolerate this behaviour and our House is renowned for the quality of its...More

We visited Le Voltaire in January, 2019. The experience was interesting - a more formal meal than I am used to, with a large waitstaff dressed in white, fine china and serving utensils, and a wine list that ranges from 'rather expensive' (some bottles priced...More

Hello and thank you very much for your appreciation. Le Voltaire is not a bistronomic brand, but a traditional French cuisine restaurant made from very high quality raw materials. We had a great pleasure in serving you and delighting you. We hope to have the...More

The atmosphere in this restaurant can't be beat. The quality of the food is good; the service when we ate there was "meh". The prices, on the other hand, are fairly astronomical for what is standard bistro fare. This is a great place to bring...More

The décor is plush mid-80s, the customers either tourists or typical Left Bank well-heeled's, the cooking stolidly conventional. More for the atmosphere than for the cooking.

Contrary to la Fregate which is going down market as a mass tourist trap, Le Voltaire has kept its parisian brasserie feeling. On the banks of Seine, 5 mn from Musée d'Orsay, 10 from the Louvre, it's a perfect for a simple, yet refined, meal....More
