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,...

Great food and a fantastic wine selection in a funky,low key atmosphere at a reasonable price. If I lived in Omaha I'd be a regular patron.

I have been visiting La Buvette for the past 23 years. My first visit was a result of my looking for a cozy cafe/bistro similar to what I had experienced when I lived in England and France...a place that had some great wines that you could pair up with a very limited...but very tasty menu of continental comfort food. And... More

We are farmers in town for the ACRES USA organic farming conference and learned about this place from a local at Mister Toad bar. We had just arrived and were very impressed with Old Market. Loved the the ambience, wine, accompanying food, and the reasonable bill.

We came here before going to dinner elsewhere for a bottle of wine and cheese platter which was wonderful. Platter came with homemade bread that reminded me lf dark bread my dad makes so good I even bought a loaf to take with me. Great wine selection. Will come back the next time i come to Omaha.

In Omaha for work this week and stopped in for dinner. On prior trips have always tried steak restaurants since I was always told steak should be great here....well I have always been disappointed. La Buvette is part restaurant and part wine store. The place was crowded at 6 PM so thought I would give it a try. There appeared... More
