Best dining experience in Elk Grove. Service is impeccable. Farm to table with seasonal local ingredients. Love that you don't have to drive out of EG for an exceptional meal!

I visit Elk Grove a handful of times a year. The friends that I visit there always have said great things about BB. I finally made a reservation to go there with them. What a disappointment. For starters, we ordered two plates to share, bone marrow and goat cheese. The bone marrow yielded about a tablespoon each and the goat... More

I have eaten in many of the best restaurants in the world, and Boulevard Bistro is right up there with the best. This little gem of a restaurant is exceptional EVERY TIME we dine there. The food is exquisitely flavoured, with the BEST ingredients shining through. The chef is clearly classically trained, and amazingly creative. As a Cordon Bleu trained... More

Semi-French based, polished, skilled and frequently experimenting. The Boulevard Bistro is the finest dining restaurant in the Elk Grove area, and a fair contestant against other like Biba's and Ella's. A family birthday evening was delightful, with service, as usual, excellent. My scallops were prepared perfectly. An excellent wine list and interesting beers offer good drinks, instead of or after... More

This little bistro was a great surprise. I was traveling through town on business and read the trip advisor reviews. They were spot on. I started with the caprese salad which had such fresh flavors and delicious cheese. I then ordered the scallops which came on a bed of corn with braised fat back. The combination of flavors and textures... More

Don't miss this restaurant. Menu changes with the seasons and produce availability. Chef is brilliant. Reservations required but worth the trouble. Do not miss this place!

Best place for a nice sit down dinner in Elk Grove. Perfect for date night or anniversary. Small with quiet ambience. Plenty of attention. Great cook.

This place over charge for under quality food. And waiter service was bad too. He not only got our drinks wrong but never come check on our table.

This is a small, atmospheric restaurant in a cottage style home in Old Elk Grove. The menu is always changing and you can be sure you are getting the most for your money, both in quantity and (surely) in quality. I always love the Filet Mignon and the lamb, almost a constant on the menu, and both are a melt... More

O' my! This was our fifth visit to Boulevard Bistro and it is worth the hour drive for us. The Salmon my wife had was very very good and my Steak was perfect. The wine list is interesting and none are in my favorite wine shop. I've been looking for a bottle of the yummy Pinot Noir we had and... More
