Back Bistro is a gem! It's a small restaurant in a generic shopping plaza (Raley's and other local shopping), but it's definitely a winner! We went there tonight for the first time and will be back again. The food was wonderful. Extremely tasty and perfect....More

Every time we go to Back Bistro we enjoy the creative variety of the food and the pleasant/nice way it is presented. Even the "house" wines are good, though they obviously have a very broad and nice selection of wines. We often enjoy just having...More

It is pretty small place located in the neighbor. Small portion food that taste just ok (not great). Friendly waitress checks if everything ok a lot. Good place to go if you want to be relaxed in the cozy atmosphere.

Small plate concepts are great if they are priced appropriately so if you are hungry you can order multiple items. I ordered a scallop entree for $28 and it was pretty much just 4 scallops. I didn't order more food because my friends were treating...More

A lovely evening - romantic atmosphere, nice prix fixe menu on Tuesdays, excellent attentive service. My boyfriend would have liked a larger serving - but the concept and pricing are small plate. I look forward to a return visit!
