Boulevard Bistro Ratings and Reviews

Boulevard bistro is a wonderful place for a quiet evening dinner for any occasion. Price is appropriate for finer dining. Every dish is made perfectly and can be complimented with a lovely selection of wines. If you haven't ever had bone marrow, you've got to give it a try. So worth it.

As usual the service was outstanding but also as usual the vegetables were minimal. The broccoli that came with the delicious lamb T-bones was burnt.
The bread that is served when you first come in was as always very good, but this time the bread was very cold. It was a cold rainy night and warm bread would have been much appreciated.

Our first time to have dinner there, it was superb. Food was delicious, the staff was amazing. We even got to meet the chef, he was great! Everyone went out of their way to make it a special experience. The only thing I would say is fire up that fireplace but the candles in there were very nice.
We would definitely go again, huge thanks for a wonderful birthday celebration. Parking in rear which was nice since it was raining and windy.

When having brunch in December the last two times prior to this December, the dining area with fireplace has been decorated very nice for the holiday season. I told me friend (who had never been there) about what a delight it is to go to brunch there in December. The front check-in area was decorated but the rest of the restaurant was not. It disappointed me but the service and food was delicious all the same.

This is the third, maybe fourth time that my husband & I have eaten here. We absolutely LOVE the food, wine, ambiance & service....all outstanding!! The only drawback that we can see is the noise level. The setting is so very quaint, which is lovely but it doesn't lend towards a QUIET evening. And because my husband is deaf in one ear, it makes our quiet evening even harder! But, believe me, it won't stop us from going back!!
Might I suggest a few of the Asian style folding screens between the two rooms & tables to help with the noise level?

Boulevard Bistro is such a special place. Their food never disappoints and the service is outstanding. This is where my husband and I come for special occasions as it is a special place. I just cannot say enough about the food. No matter what you decide, you will be happy you ordered it. The way they put flavors together is just unmatched! Thanks for being so awesome Boulevard Bistro.

I almost hate to rave about this place because it is already hard enough to get a reservation. BUT, truth be told, this is one of the best restaurants in the Elk Grove/Sacramento and surrounding areas. I have been here several times and have NEVER left the restaurant disappointed.

My nephew was in town for business. We came here and loved it, so I brought two more friends here the very next week. The service was exceptionally attentive, yet not overbearing. Our waiter overheard us express a bit of hesitancy over a wine choice we had made and came to our table to present us a few more options. The ambiance is warm and inviting.
I am new to Elk Grove and was happy to find a fine dining experience right here.

This is our go-to place for special meals. Wouldn't recommend it for families with young children. Very cozy atmosphere. What sets it apart is the food. It couldn't be any better. I had the pork chop. It was huge but cooked to perfection, so tender I could've cut it with a fork. The sauce and mushroom bed was over the top. My friend had the steak - again, cooked to perfection with the most amazing taste. And, of course, we finished the meal with some of the best crème brulee ever.
Service, as always, was over the top.

Boulevard Bistro was excellent!! My wife and I have celebrated our 25th and 26th wedding anniversary there and we love it. The service is top notch and the food is incredible. .. we'll be there for number 27 next year.

After many years, Boulevard Bistro is still the best. Brunch was fabulous (as usual). Chef Brett was in the kitchen and daughter Candice was out front. Excellent service. This is truly a first-class restaurant. We'll be back for brunch or dinner again soon.

My husband and I were looking forward to a night out and hoped for nice dinner. We were very pleasantly surprised with a fantastic experience! Service was attentive, friendly and prompt, food was delicious and a atmosphere was quite nice. A great surprise for us and we look forward to another visit soon.

Boulevard Bistro is a quaint restaurant in Elk Grove - hands down the best restaurant in the city. It is located in a refurbished 1920's bungalow and the decor is clean and modern making the spot a quiet little getaway for the evening. From appetizer to salad, entree, and dessert, the food was amazing!

Love the Bistro!
We always seem to get the seat right in the corridor. The couple next to us asked to move because it was a little too close for comfort. Nonetheless - no matter where you sit, your Bistro experience is certain to be great. Can't wait to go back.

Sevice was quite attentive, but not intrusive, checking in & still giving us enough time to peruse the menu full of delicious choices. We were served an unexpected complimentary mild (goat?) cheese & bread plate to start. Then came the beautifully melty camembert & crouton appetizer, ordered by our friend. Hubby & I both had the filet mignon entree, perfectly cooked nedium rare with drool-inducing char on the outside. I don't know how the chefs get so much flavor & perfect moist texture into such a lean cut, but the demiglacě added more juicy flavor without overwhelming. The mashed potatos were a smooth & creamy accompaniment. Our frind had the salmon, which I didn't taste, but he said it was excellent, high praise from a Bay area foodie transplant. Desserts were amazing. Hubby had rich, intense espresso-infused pot de creme. I had an absolutely classic vanilla creme brulee with 3 ripe blueberries & an edible flower (tiny pansy? violet?) Our friend finished with thewarm bread pudding, and couldn't stop complimenting the companion ice cream. All in all an excellent meal, as always.
