We walked in to check out the wine shop. We asked a person who was having lunch about the food. He said it was fantastic. We did not have time that day but we went back. Wow. It is a delight in a city of ordinary food. We had the scallops and the duck egg gratin. Both were prepared perfectly,... More

We have traveled all over this world but we were truly blown away by the quality, diversity, and value of this wonderful establishment. My wife and I dined here twice on a Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Amazingly in the Old Market of Omaha, the place could have been at home along the Champs-Élysées or perhaps a close neighborhood in Paris.... More

Surrounded by a terrific wine selection is just the beginning. We enjoyed the bresaola ( air dried salted beef) and caprese sale with buffalo mozzarella. The bread and fresh butter arrive complimentary with your order. I noticed the bread and butter can be ordered as a menu item, just in case you order nothing else. Well now I know why!... More

This place is not for everyone but there is no better place for a night out. Country French Style food in a wine store. This is a slow pace relaxed atmosphere. Definitely not fast food in quality or speed. If you notice your waiter is also preparing you meal, making your drinks and selling off sale bottles of wine. Man... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is extraordinary. It is just one block off of the busy market area and seems romantic and almost hidden. Although they do not take reservations we were able to find a lovely cozy table on a cold Nebraska winter night. I really love the low-lit ambiance of this open 2-level room. The kitchen is nestled... More

We were able to score a table overlooking the kitchen which was a lot of fun. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. We practically licked our plates it was so good. Lots of great options. It was hard to choose. Scallops and the osso bucco were amazing. I have dreams about the polenta. You can also get fresh bread... More

food offerings change daily but they are always good. wine list is huge and bottle prices are affordable, just walk to their wall and pick the one you like, the waiter will serve the wine and the corkage fee is under $5. the cheese and meat plate is always good and the bread compliments it very well

La Buvette is by far my favorite place to eat in the Old Market. The cozy atmosphere is really special, and the food is great. Racks of wine from around the world surround you in this old building, with the flavor of a French street cafe. The menu is not for everyone, but give it a try, you'll definitely find... More

My husband and I were looking for a nice restaurant in the Old Market. My local cousin told us this was the place, and we loved it. They don't take reservations, but when we got there they had room at the bar. Service was simply perfect, we got to watch the kitchen which was fascinating. Not obsequious, not Chatty Kathy,...
