La Buvette is an interesting mixture of bakery, wine store, and restaurant. It's a great place for a light lunch, specializing in outstanding baguettes with all sorts of accompaniments, including pate, cheeses, spreads and the like. Add a glass of wine or a beer and you have a great meal. Outdoor tables are under cover and lots of fun for... More

We visited back during the Olympic swimming trials. It was nice to relax with a bottle of wine and charcuterie. Good spot.

Imagine a street cafe in France with open doors and a wine store atmosphere and you are inside La Buvette. Friendly informal service began with our cheese plate and a bottle of Croze Hermitage that I selected from the shelf paying only the price of the wine and a small corkage fee instead of a 200% markup like most other...

Stopped, with a friend, after a meeting for a light meal. No outside seating available, but had a nice view from just inside the door. Service slow, but good pour of wine and a really good meat and cheese plate. More than enough for two with salami, 3 cheeses, tomatoes, olives, onion, pickels, two types of bread & butter. A...

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and then dinner on another occasion. We enjoyed super fresh salads and appetizers as well as very nice glasses of wine. We were able to sit outside each time although the inside tables looked nice as well as there are many shelves with bottles of wine to view. Would definitely recommend for... More

Love visiting La Buvette as a couple because we are in no hurry and want time alone for a late dinner. Took the family for dinner at an earlier hour (7ish) and it was frustrating to wait so long for simple things like water, bread and our wine. This place is authentic down to the service - no hurry, not... More

Jake the waiter flip us off. We sat down at the patio and he was mad because we stack up the two plates that was there. Really rude and never in my life been treated this way.

We were excited to find a table just as we walked in the door. Unfortunately, the service was TERRIBLE. It seemed that there were only three servers on the floor and they were hustling, but they were extremely understaffed, as there was no extra staff to serve water or bus tables. That might have been acceptable, as the day was... More

We stopped here for drinks and hors d'oeuvres on our yearly stop to Omaha. This is a nice place with a resonably good view of the Old Market, but the outdoor seating is extremely limited as there are only a few tables. The drinks were very nice but the hor's d'oeuvres were really quite overpriced. Beware! The interior is beautiful... More
