Great experience, as usual. Fantastic food, great service. The only thing not ideal is that the restaurant seems to be stuck in between a romantic date spot and a more family-friendly restaurant. It is very small and intimate on the inside, however it looks like an old house on the outside. I believe this causes some patrons to think it's more casual and a good place to bring children. On the inside, it is fairly fancy and more geared towards a romantic date spot. The couple times we've been, there was a mix of couples on dates and then families with loud children at other tables. Because the place is so small, larger families with children can change up the experience for the entire restaurant. I realize this is not particularly in the restaurant's control, so I don't knock them for it.
Quaint small restaurant in the middle of Old Elk Grove. Impeccable presentation of fresh California Farm to Fork. We have followed the owner/chef from the Ione Hotel in the years ago. We were delighted to find him closer to home. We really miss lunches here. Hopefully since the owner has closed the Sage Mill we hope he will resume lunches at the Bistro.
First, overall service was perfect and that of a much more expensive restaurant. Each portion was well balanced. The food was excellent and unique - credit the chef. Small dining area made it very intimate with a somewhat romantic ambiance. The value was exceptional. An absolute five stars!!
Thanks for making our evening so great!
Excellent, high quality, well-prepared food is what will bring me back to the Boulevard Bistro. Each hand-crafted dish is beautifully presented and tastes scrumptious. I had the duck confit with seared pork belly and it was a sensational. We also shared a venison croquette which was unusual and very tasty. Service was impeccable. The only drawback to this restaurant is it is very small and had limited seating, which also is an asset as it is also is very quiet and comfortable.
My wife and I compare all other restaurants against Boulevard Bistro. Excellent entrees, desserts, appetizers and service is always above and beyond. Whether as a date or just everyday dining, there is no other local restaurant i would rather visit. The staff recognize us and go out of their way to greet us even if we are not their table. While the menu is a bit "limited", there is something for everyone who enjoys fine dining. Cheers.
Favorite spot. Always outstanding service & fantastic food
As always, everything was spectacular!
Service is awesome. Very attentive and quick with any requests. My water glass always full.
All went well. The food was excellent and Catalina was an excellent server. The only issue would be the table location is directly over air conditioning vent making my left side freezing cold and uncomfortable.
Great brunch. Food delicious, especially the French Toast and Eggs Benedict and service was great. Looking forward to returning soon.
Great food. Never disappointed. We like to eat there throughout the year and we make a point to eat there for our anniversary
Great food and service. I had the filet mignon and it was excellent. Wonderful wine selection as well.
The food is outstanding- the best we've found in the Elk Grove area. The service is also excellent with a friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable wait staff. In our most recent experience, one of our diners had some dietary restrictions which were thoughtfully and deliciously accomodated. We actually went 2 nights in a row! We love this place and every time we are in Elk Grove visiting our elderly mom we make sure to have dinner here.
Boulevard Bistro never disappoints! My husband introduced me to this place a few years ago and it is a rare gem. We come here for special occasions because the food, service, and ambience is unmatched. You can tell the food is made with a lot of love and care is taken to prepare each dish. It is clear that they take pride in what they do. The feeling inside the restaurant makes you feel like you are in someone's home. Boulevard Bistro is a special place to us and we will continue to come here for our special occasions.
First time at Boulevard Bistro recommended to us by our son! It was my husbands birthday and we were very satisfied with the dining experience! The steak and the salmon was very good! Would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will be back since we live 10 minutes away!
Lovely meal. We go for all our special occasions. As always service was excellent. Wine list and food were amazing. We will be back soon.
This place is AMAZING! 10 stats for not only the food, but the service as well!
It is always so nice here and feels very quaint. It is calm and the servers are so personal.
Boulevard Bistro has become our anniversary dinner spot. We’ve fined here about 3 or 4 time now and we’ve never been disappointed. The food is always well-prepared and the servers are attentive.
The only negative is the corkage fee. The menu link on Open Table indicated a fee of $15; however, when we got there, the server mentioned it was $20. Although we knew there would be a corkage fee, $20 is a bit steep ($15 is more palatable, but still high).
Great food and service. A great date or special occasion restaurant with well-crafted meals.
Four old friends dined here and had a wonderful meal. The steaks were done to perfection. Everyone loved the salad. One member of the group who often has difficulty hearing in restaurants remarked about how quiet it was so he could easily hear all of us speaking. This is the best restaurant in Elk Grove, by far.
Wonderful atmosphere, excellent food, and great service!
Fantastic Easter Sunday brunch! Very unique setting in a house converted to restaurant.
It is always guaranteed that the meal will be fantastic from chef Brent. First time having Sunday brunch starting with Bloody Mary or Mimosas. After ordering, the waiter brings a refreshing plate of fruit and cheeses on the house . People need to be aware that reservation are almost always a must because the old remodeled house is small so doesn’t seat many. We especially enjoy the restaurant because of the soft music and not so loud that no one can hear each other talk. We stay away from those types of restaurants .. There is of course plenty of free parking behind the restaurant and easy for wheelchairs also . Dinners are also excellent and menu changes regularly , but keeps his signature dishes.
Everything was perfect, from walking in and getting seated right away, phenomenal service and fantastic food.
I had a wonderful experience at Boulevard Bistro! The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Everyone raved about their meal. Great wine selection too! I will be back.
The food was AMAZING as usual from the appetizers to the desserts!
The waiter recommended the perfect Chardonnay for me; Foley Johnson - soft, creamy & not overly sweet.
The asparagus appetizer was delicious; loved the seasoning. We also enjoyed the olive appetizer. Chef Bohlmann made me a delicious spring vegetable cassoulet. My husband had the filet; thick & tender, as always. He enjoyed a nice Zinfandel with his filet.
We also enjoyed the focaccia bread served with the meal. That’s a nice change.
The service is always spot on. They even offered to bring me another glass of Chardonnay because they thought it wasn’t cold enough. Perfectly paced, too!
We’ll definitely be back.
Spectacular food, as always. My favourite restaurant in California. Terrific service and ambiance. We love this place!
we were given a gift card from our son and daughter-in-law the food we very good and generous portions we we so full we could not have dessert next time we will
It was my second time visiting this hidden gym so had very high expectations. Unfortunately, expectations were not met in comparison to the first time. Filet mignon cut was not the highest quality since there was a big chunk of uneatable fat. Asked for medium but was served medium rare ‘more or less blue in the middle. It was sent back and came back medium but sliced. Took away from the full experience that I enjoyed and craved during my first visit.
What a great meal! Excellent service, perfectly prepared food, creative ingredients. Definitely coming back.
Great food and service however it was a little too warm inside the restaurant.
Very enjoyable, good food, fun wait staff lovely anniversary dinner.
Never disappointed. Food, service are outstanding. It is nice to go there and be reminded what great food and service are like.
Always, ALWAYS consistently fresh and delicious. The chef here certainly deserves recognition in my book.
I love this place. The ambiance is very intimate because you're really surrounded only by a few tables. The menu is quite small which means that it may change very often. The food was very good and left an impression on me and my wife. We ordered the filet mignon that sat on top of a cloud of mashed potatoes and asparagus on the side and a "pork pot plate" that had a trifecta of pork: sausage, pork belly, and pork medallion that sat on top of a brown pork like base sauce with barley. Our favorite was the bone marrow shared dish: smearing the marrow on the bread is a texture very close to foie gras. I would really recommend this to anyone who would really want to steer away from the norm (BJs, Macaroni Grill) and try something out better in terms of presentation, service, taste, and setting. The pricing of the food may be intimidating but don't let that digress you since you will be paying for quality food and service.
Four friends celebrating a birthday. It was perfect!
