Great service, quiet atmosphere, excellent food. Love the smaller portions of great food rather than huge portions of mediocre food! Only thing I didn’t love was dessert. The peach cobbler was dry and forgettable.

Yummy French inspired cuisine! We always get the bone marrow and warm camembert appetizer. Their salads are small, but yummy. I like the greens with the pear and blue cheese. Hubby likes the wedge. He loves the strip steak when they have it. I enjoy the lamb and other specials such as the pork cheeks. You must get the creme brulee!!! We always get it, even if we're stuffed! Service is top notch! We love coming here for special occasions.

Food was outstanding along with the service. The restaurant is very small and intimate, but the tables are placed very close together, so it can get rather loud and it's difficult not to hear everyone else's conversations. We went for our anniversary, which was specifically noted on the reservation and there was no mention of it whatsoever, and we were placed at a table in the direct center of the room, not very romantic. This was our third visit, but we will most likely go elsewhere to celebrate special occasions in the future.

Totally enjoyed brunch there for my granddaughters birthday. The food was amazing and the price was way lower than I thought it was going to be. My granddaughter got a birthday candle on the peach cobbler we ordered....nice surprise that the dessert was on the house...thank you so much for an enjoyable event!!

Everything was great. Salmon was cooked perfectly, chicken breast was moist and pork chop was hearty and very good.
We also ordered the wedge salad which was very tasty and the corn chowder. We had very friendly wait staff as well.
The only disappointing thing was that two of us in our party wanted to order the duck special, but they had already sold out.
We thought at 6:00 pm was too early not to have a special dish sold out already for the evening.

Great little place for date night. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasty. We had the tomato bisque soup, fresh salad, salmon, chicken breast and creme brulee. A small little place, I wouldn't recommend for kids. The service was very attentive. We definitely will come again.

One of us is vegetarian. Boulevard Bistro does not have a vegetarian menu, but we asked our waiter and he contacted the chef. We were presented with an outstanding vegetarian entree that surprised us. We have known about Boulevard Bistro for years, but have not gone regularly. Now we might reconsider and visit more often. It is best to make requests ahead of time, but this last minute accommodation was wonderful.

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!!

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.

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.
