I’ve been a fan ever since the early Back Bar days. The food is always great and the wine pairings are magical.
Just OK. We were seated promptly and the Bruschetta appetizer was excellent. Everything else was mediocre. Several items were not available which seemed weird for early Saturday evening. Mushroom flatbread was dry. Lamb burger was ok but the fries were limp. The artichoke appetizer was not appealing. The service was fine and I wouldn’t necessarily discourage someone from going but with so many other choices it will be some time before I try Back again.
This is my second visit. I already have reservations for the third and fourth. This is my MOST FAVORITE RESTAURANT. Lovely ambiance,gracious staff, delicious food, fun happy hour, just THE BEST!
We ordered a creamy artichoke appetizer for the first time. It was wonderful. I had salmon and it was perfectly prepared. The service was excellent. Since I was celebrating my birthday I had to order the Triple Pot de Creme for dessert. Heavenly! (But I usually order it even when it’s NOT my birthday.
Went to listen to my son play guitar at one of my favorite restaurants! Love Back Bistro - have been a fan for a long time. Great food, awesome Happy Hour, and friendly service. Highly recommend it!
The food was good but I was disappointed that they were out of my first choice for an entree. They were out of another entree also which meant that 20% of their menu was unavailable. Also when my food arrived the meat was hot but the polenta it was served on had cooled off significantly.
Back Bistro has always been my favorite place. I bring my friends here.
To make it a 5, we felt the scallops were a tad undercooked and we ordered cheese that didn't come in a timely fashion. Overall, a wonderful experience and we will be back!
The choc dessert plate was incredible, wine was amazing and my salmon was great. Salad's were good too and the happy hour pricing/menu makes the value for fine dining tough to beat.
Great food, great location, great service. We visit about once a quarter and are never disappointed.
Another wonderful Prix Fixe dinner and Wine Pairing with excellent service.
I hate to recommend this restaurant because it was so flawless, I don't want it to become so popular that we cannot get in. Everything was absolutely perfect! The hostess was welcoming, the waitress, was thoughtful and accommodating, the menu was great, the food was served by two waiters so the four of us all received our food at the same time. Meals were so delicious we were all talking about our selections the next day. This is what we go out to dinner for! We call this, "Wow-factor," and everything we were served, qualified. The presentations were beautiful, generous, and delicious. Be sure to save room for desserts. They too were astounding. (Now stay home. We want to keep this great place to ourselves. ;-) )
We enjoyed a delicious lunch that was expertly prepared and presented. The food was delicious and the service was professional and friendly. We will definitely visit again, and next time I want to try dinner.
Always consistent and food is very good. Opted for a few appetizers instead of a meal.
We went there before a performance at Harris Center, when I discovered I had left my tickets at the office. I had a coworker email them to me and the manager was willing to print them out for us. Over the top service. The food was delish. I would recommend the ahi poke to all. It looks like a small portion, but it is so rich, I could hardly finish it. The pickled cucumber on top was masterful - and I don't like cukes! The location is a little hard to find and parking was a challenge, but the food was terrific.
For the second time in a row we were forgotten after being seated. If it weren't for Brandon and his excellent service I would write this place off. Fortunately, the food is wonderful and so are the cocktails so we will be back, again thanks to Brandon.
We had a great dinner on the patio. Excellent service, delicious food. We'll be back!
My favorite place in town. Loved the addition of live music Thursday’s. Always a great time!
The "new" location is awesome. It's open, bright and airy, yet comfortable and classy. My guests really enjoyed it as well. Our server was simply outstanding! We will be back!
We had a wonderful time. The service was friendly and helpful, and the food was all perfect. The happy hour drinks were full strength.
We were late arriving and pressed for time because of a concert we were attending after dinner. The staff was accommodating. I was concerned about the noise level when we entered, but seats near the back of the restaurant were quiet & sound dampened by curtains. The menu clearly indicated gluten free meals. Food was tasty and generous. The four of us in our party each had a different entree and all were great.
All around excellent experience
Met friends for lunch to celebrate birthdays. Good service, food was good overall though my chicken was rubbery. The desserts were fabulous. All in all pretty good experience, but they need to change venders of where they buy their chicken. Everyone else loved their meals.
One of the best meals we have had in some time. Wine and service was great also. Will be back!!
Best prix fix dinners & great wine selections. The waitress was super!
The best in Folsom and El Dorado Hills. Jeff Back is the owner and is on-site ensuring your experience is exceptional. We’ve been dining with Back since he opened in 2008. Highly recommend going there.
Great Prix Fixe dinner, it was one of the best meals we have had at a restaurant in some time.
Back Bistro has been my favorite place to eat since I discovered them about 5 years ago. I took my friend there recently to celebrate her birthday. It was lunchtime, uncrowned, quiet, great food, great wine, and the staff was friendly and attentive. We both had a wonderful time.
Good food and friendly service for lunch on a Sunday. Scallops were a bit too salty but quite good. I subbed mashed potatoes for the risotto. Yummy yummy
We enjoyed our meal indoors and liked that we were able to go out on the patio for a more informal seating area to enjoy another glass of wine!
Thank you so much for your review! We look forward to serving you again and thanks for supporting local.
Back Bistro always delivers excellent food and great service. They also have a great Happy Hour where you can get smaller items at discounted price at your table. We love the Braised Short Rib, Shrimp and Scallops along with many other items.
9 girlfriends met for lunch on the patio, everyone enjoyed their meal and drink selections. Our server, Amanda, was so accommodating and fun. The other staff was just as nice. We all agreed this should be the place to meet for future get togethers.
We went to Back Bistro at 6:30 on a Tuesday night. Business was a little slow but they seemed to be completely understaffed and their waitstaff was just spread too thin throughout the restaurant. We waited probably 6–8 minutes upon arriving before anyone even came over to offer us water or to take our drink order. We were 1 of 4 tables in the main dining area when we were sat and then there were a handful of tables outside. We then went our entire dinner waiting for our waitress to come by and check in. Both of us had nothing to drink through most of our dinner and were hoping to order another round of drinks midway through. Would have loved to have another glass of wine with my amazing dinner! We could see our waitress but it was impossible to flag her down as she was darting all over serving tables both inside and outside. During our meal a few other tables were sat in the dining area so it only got worse. The icing on the cake was the fact that we could see the manager standing at the bar most of the night and he seemed to make no effort to help back up his staff even though she was visibly stressed. I absolutely love this place and their food is fantastic but they really need their staff to have smaller areas so they can better attend to tables. Even if it is a slow week night. This was my hubby's first time there and unfortunately he has almost no desire to return even though he absolutely loved his food. I will say that when I mentioned the issue to our waitress at the end of the night that she comped a round of drinks so I truly appreciated her gesture. This by no means was an issue with the waitress, just not adequate staffing for a restaurant of this size. If you only have a two waitstaff in the whole restaurant perhaps they should consider closing off part of the dining are so the tables aren't so spread out. It would have been more manageable for the staff.
Maybe we just went on an off night because the food wasn’t really good at all.
Always fantastic food, great service and wonderful ambiance!
We had another good dinner here--this time the Tuesday night pre fixe dinner. Jamie was once again a very good waitress!
We celebrated my husband’s birthday with family. Food was great and service good. Back Bistro never disappoints.
We went early to take advantage of happy hour. The food is always good and the wine selected for “house wine” also good. The service is exceptional.
First time in the new location - and happy that the value and deliciousness of the food has not changed! Beautiful bar and restaurant! Everyone seemed to be having fun! Will definitely be back!
Awesome! This place is relaxing & quiet. The food is always great
We had a wonderful Father's Day dinner at Back's Wine Bar/Bistro. The salad portions were generous and delicious, the entrees were hot and perfectly cooked, and the dessert (Sticky Toffee Cake) was too good to leave any behind. The wine was wonderful and our friend tried a flight of rye whiskey that he enjoyed. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable and we had outstanding service. A great experience. We'll go again for another special occasion.
