We had visited in September 2018 and the main dishes were very plentiful. The last two times I have been there, there is very little food on the dinner plate. Both times we asked for more vegetables at least. Just curious as to why the portions are so much smaller. The food is wonderful and we do keep coming back.

Great place for a nice dinner for six. They have a section towards the back that is perfect for a small group.

The food here was truly delicious, and the ambience was very pleasant. The service was excellent. We highly recommend combining the mussels and sausage - this item doesn't appear on the menu but the staff can put the two dishes together.

Went there for Sunday brunch. The food was outstanding as was the service. It is not cheap but you certainly get what you pay for. Our group had the eggs Benedict and the corned beef hash, both excellent. We thought the apple crisp dessert was out of this world.

Took my wife for an anniversary dinner. Nice ambiance, good service and excellent food. Had bone marrow as an appetizer and Ahi tuna and Salmon for main dishes. Good wine list. Upper end of price scale for Elk Grove ($125 for two all in) but would be higher priced probably in Downtown or a major city. Enjoyable for special occasions and romantic dinners for two.

Boulevard Bistro is our go to restaurant for all special occasions. We have tried others for a change, but none can compare to the quality and service of this one, so we always return. Last weekend my husband and daughter ordered their favorite dish, French toast, with other side dishes -- all excellent. I ordered a salad, with a huge portion of salmon perfectly cooked on top. All staff, from those who greeted us, served and cleared our table, and the chef, were so professional, pleasant, and informative, we always feel special and want to come back.

I like the relaxed quiet feeling. Our split pea soup was wonderful, the beet salad was delicious and my filet mignon was mouthwatering soft. Every single item we order was amazing, from the soup, salad, main entree, wine, to the delicious persimmon bread pudding. The service was oustanding and above a five star rating. I highly recommend Boulevard Bistro.

We've been to Boulevard Bistro on several occasions. However, this time the food was not very good. The salmon came out under cooked so we unfortunately had to send it back then it came out over cooked. The mashed potatoes were extremely cold. The duck was salty but had a nice crispy skin. Although, the food was not up to par. The service was excellent just as it always is.

This is a lovely gem of a restaurant in an unlikely locale. It was a bit noisy the night that I went, but there were several parties going on. I have been here previously and it was quieter. The ambiance is nice, the service is great, the wine menu is excellent. The food is good and I love that they have smaller portions! They even came up with a vegan entree that was not on the menu for my dining companion. Very impressive!

I thought the food was prepared and presented very well. There wasn't a large selection of items but they did well with what they had. The service was excellent. It's a very small and initmate setting so great for a date. We tried the salmon, short ribs and steak. We were all happy with our selections.

I took my wife to this restaurant for her birthday. The ambience and the food was outstanding. The service was the most professional I have ever seen. Absolutely outstanding. It is a small quiet elegant place in a beautiful old home. We liked it so much that we made reservations for a return visit before we had even left. There are a few restaurants in Elkgrove of this quality. Reservations are a must. BThank you boulevard bistro!

Boulevard Bistro was recommended to us by two different people so we decided to give it a try. Everything was wonderful...the food, the service, the atmosphere. We will definitely be returning. Loved dining in a family owned restaurant that is in a lovely old house that was turned into a really nice cozy restaurant.
