Folsom >Bidwell Street Bistro
we just had dinner at this place and it was wonderful-it seemed very busy for a wednesday evening-the food was great and we were treated very well by the server.
small bistro in a shopping center but made you feel you were somewhere in europe with the feel of the interior
great food and nice service
Good for Folsom. We went early on a Saturday night and the restaurant filled up fast. The atmosphere was charming and our server, Aaron was excellent. We shared a bowl of french onion soup which was very ordinary, not flavorful enough, could have used more richness. For our entrees we had the scallops and the night special, the lamb. The scallops were wonderful, cooked perfect and very tasty. Unfortunately, the lamb was very gamey and once again, nothing but average. For dessert we had creme brulee and it was just right. All in all a nice experience but not special enough to warrant the high price.
Bad Location. The food was ok. But the location is extremely, excessively strip mall.
Viva La France. Terrific ambiance interior decor design bar great.. the food fantastic.. the only problem it gets full fast so get there early. Suggestion to the Bistro "go big" find a larger location as your definitely Folsom's best and there is plenty of patronage as it is always full so why not relocate to a larger location to accomodate the demand! Suggest utilization of our wonderful local vinters as we have fantastic wines here in El Dorado & Amador counties just need to invite them in with our friends from Napa..great place just make a reservation..
If only I could speak french.... I would have the ability to eloquently express my inner culinary feelings for this gem of a restaurant in the unassuming town of Folsom, CA. Tired of the typical Chinese, Mexican and American fare so common in the foothills area, I decided to take a chance on The Bistro... what an experience! The mussles were the best I've ever tasted - rich and loaded with garlic; the escargot - what can I say other than awesome! The creme brule', usually not a favorite of mine, was supurb!! A bit more expensive than enchiladas with rice and beans, but well worth every nickel... Can't wait to go back...
