Balcony Bistro...This place is FANTASTIC! To begin with, the ambiance is warm and inviting, rustic red brick and artfully faux painted walls adorned with local art give Balcony Bistro a unique Bohemian atmosphere. Service is provided by a staff that is both "Small Town" friendly and "Big City" professional, i.e. water glasses and bread basket receive prompt attention; appetizers and entrees paced perfectly! Wine list...for a brand new bistro, the list is well thought out and fun. I loved the house Cab, R.H. Phillips (Dunnigan Hills). Now on to the cuisine...The menu is uniquely varied. From Sea Bass and Soba Noodle Sushi to Spice Seared Venison to Cannelloni Crepes. Appetizers...We started with the Souffle' style Crab Cake and Chilled Oysters on the Half Shell. The crab cake is light in texture and rich with flavor. The "Sweet Fusion Chili Sauce" accompaniment gives a spicy bite, without having to reach for the water glass. The oysters were fresh and quite large (an oyster lover's dream). The companion "Minionette" sauce enhanced rather than overpowered the succulent oysters. Soup...the "Seafood Bisque" lingers on the palette with a suggestion of the sea and a whisper of cinnammon. Entrees...who would think to combine "Sea bass and Soba Noodle Sushi with mashed potatoes...what a wonderful marriage! The "Rack of Lamb Persille" with homemade mint sauce is tender, juicy, and exceeds expectations. Dessert...All desserts are prepared exquisitely "in-house". We had the Tiramisu which was perfect and "Chocolate Ecstasy" was just that, ecstasy. Getting back to the atmosphere, Chaz Mully provides live jazz guitar and conversations sometimes drifted "between" tables which lends to the relaxed but classy ambiance. All in all I believe owner/operators, Rhonda Lynum and Chef Gerard Robert have a genuine "Hit" on their hands.

I didn't know what to expect when I first gave Balcony Bistro a try. I thought it would be like a Dennys or something not so elegant. I was very wrong. I entered to find a clean rustic atmosphere with table cloths, and even a place called the Red Room where they had cute checker tiled floors and a sort of wine bar. The food was amazing also. I went for dinner and had the Osso Bucco. My partner had the Cannelloni Crepes. I couldn't possibly finish my meal because it was so much food, but I tried anyway in vain because it was so delicious. If I were trying to impress someone, this is the only place I would take them in Folsom.
