Cedric Fichepain was born in France, lived in Italy, and finally moved to the US in 1997 after marrying Fremont native Desarae Mueller in 1995. He started his career as Executive Chef of Farucci’s, and after just six months, the restaurant was selected as one of the 10 best restaurants in 2000. Cedric finally opened his own place in April 2001 and once again immediately placed on the Omaha World-Herald top 10 list.

After more than fifteen years in Omaha, “the little corner of France in West Omaha” has become one of the finest dining establishments in town. The restaurant features French classic cuisine in a romantic south of France’s atmosphere. The menu covers all the regions of France and offers the most extensive French Wine list in Nebraska.

Le Voltaire received the Wine Spectator Award for its outstanding varieties of French Wine for the past sixteen years. A beautiful private room with a direct view of the wine cellar was opened in October 2004 and can seat up to 40 people. It can be used for private parties, business meetings, and rehearsal dinners.
