As some of you know, this is the old French Cafe, which had been around since the 70's, now with major interior structural changes, and a whole new clientele. Plaid flannel shirts and jeans instead of suits and cocktail dresses. We were there Friday and...More

This is where I will eat if I am ever in Omaha again. I was desperate for something healthy after driving there from the West Coast. The chicken had a great flavor and was cooked perfectly - very moist. I wish I knew how to...More

Onion soup and escargots were praised... but I missed confit the canard in the menu. Service was a bit slow at noon. But yes... I would go back.

We stopped at Le Bouillon for brunch while meeting family in Omaha. The atmosphere was wonderful, but the service and food topped it. Don't miss the Austrian pancake. It was so delicious! The waiters were fantastic as well.

So delicious, a menu that satisfies meat lovers, vegetarian and vegans at a very reasonable price and with great service. Sitting on the terrace outside was very enjoyable. I'm definitely coming back again one day.

We were looking for a fun place to have a Saturday brunch this last weekend, and found Le Bouillon. Everyone in our group had something different- omelette, pancakes, quiche, and croque madame sandwich- all of them were rich and absolutely delicious. The coffee and mimosas...More

Located in the heart of the Old Market, Le Bouillon offers a return to the great regional culinary heritage of France. In a lively, airy room that offers tables for groups of any size, Chef Paul Kulik presents his take on the comfort foods of rural France. Sourcing the best ingredients from local producers, set in a open, alluring space, Le Bouillon is sure to fit any occasion. Converted from a fruit and vegetable warehouse, Sam Mercer's vision of a French restaurant began the Old Market. Some 45 years later, Le Bouillon returns to the roots of the rich culture and gastronomy of Southern France. Returned to the restaurant is the impressive Niki de St. Phalle Tree and a menagerie of watercolors painted by Sam Mercer himself. The light, bright atmosphere complements the bright fresh flavors of Paul Kulik's farm fresh cuisine. Our beverage program begins with the belief that wine belongs on the table. Our wine list highlights France's remarkable and moderately priced Vins de Table from magnificent producers in often overlooked areas . The bar hand-selects spirits and aperitifs to combine for a dynamic craft cocktail program. Whether cut from the Volano slicer, shucked from the raw bar, or pulled from the grill, Le Bouillon aims to demonstrate the delicious approachability of French comfort foods.
