The food is very good and a different style than other "normal" restaurants. Definitely a treat to experience Bolero's.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!!I am not a meat lover but it was my fiancé's birthday so he got to pick the restaurant. He was in his happy place with all the meat, and I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. Everything was delicious, was a good way to try different cuts of meat to find out what you like, and the grilled fruit was heaven.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of fun and interactiveLots of fun and interactive with servers bringing food all the time. Not recommended as a romantic private dinner but great for a group. We had 5 of us. Meat was awesome and great way to try different cuts of beef and different types of meat. Must do the $40 plan.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, excellent night!Great food, great service, didn't feel rushed, really enjoyed it, as always!!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBolero was awesome. The foodBolero was awesome. The food is amazing, the service is great! It was a great all around experience.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMeat is the starWe always enjoy going to Bolero due to the flavor, quality and variety of the meat skewers. The pineapple is awesome too, juicy and full of flavor. The garlic bread was an interesting addition from our last visit and a nice change. We enjoyed all the skewers as they came around and really appreciated that our waiter sent over specific ones that we wanted to resample near the end of our meal. Ordering creme brulee for dessert is a tradition and once again an enjoyable end to our meal. One area that we thought could have been improved is the freshness and quality of the salad bar/cold sides as some were inedible (too chewy calamari ceviche) and a number of others seemed like they had been sitting too long.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBrand new experience for meOur night out here was awesome! Food was great, both in the quality and taste as well as $ value.
Service was fabulous and I honestly can't recall the noise level we were tucked back in a booth but could still view the whole Resturaunt, I would say kudos to whoever designed this place, very well done!

So happy with the food ( meat varieties).
Hope to see another Bolero downtown.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food!The food is amazing! My husband and I each had the teaser plate - we each got to try two of their meats and it was more than enough. We will be coming back again for sure!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good place for dinnerNever a fail for dinner. We dont usually go here during the week, but I really enjoyed it as the restaurant was nice a quiet as it was not as busy. You have to make a reservation everytime; especially on a Friday or Saturday. We always take family here for special occasions or just to hang out with friends. We always have a great experience and the food is fabulous everytime!!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYumWe enjoyed every minute we spent at the restaurant - from the moment we walked in we were treated well. The food and drink were fabulous!!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been there for dinnerWe have been there for dinner before but did not realize they were open for brunch too - it was great and the cost for the kids was very economical - 1.00 per year up to age twelve. We all really enjoyed our brunch.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at boleros, birthdayFirst time at Boleros for both of us, we had an excellent time. The meat was fantastic, and the buffet bar was great as well. It was my boyfriends birthday and I had mentioned that on the booking. The waiter brought by a piece of cake with a sparkler at the end of our meal. We will definitely be coming back6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat EveningWe were a large group that came together from across the country; loved the open table reservation system - worked well and had a follow up phone call on day of booking. Pineapple and pork were the overall favourites. Overall - 12/14 people had never been to Bolero and loved the experience.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove and BeyondI was a little intimidated by the prices, but I knew them going in. In the end, it didn't seem as much as I thought it was going to be, and it was an amazing value for the dollar. I booked the reservation through open table with a number of specific requests for the seating, and relating the the occasion (our wedding anniversary). I didn't really expect many of the requests to be taken seriously, but they absolutely were. We had the best possible table in the restaurant for the occasion. I'm not big on buffet's in general, but as a salad bar, it was pretty good. The rest of the food was amazing (parm pork and habenaro pork took the top honors), and the service was fantastic, especially the attention to detail. Would be great with the kids.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI've heard so many good thingsI've heard so many good things about Bolero and finally got to experience it for myself. It exceeded my expectations in every way - the setting was classy yet comfortable, the staff were friendly and let us take our time enjoying all the scrumptious food. The meat was tender, juicy, and tasty while the salad bar was just as good, providing a wide range of options. For someone who usually dines on a strict budget I will definitely make the exception to come back again (and again) - it is deinitely worth the cost!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMeatasticBrazillian BBQ at it's finest. They were very accommodating for our group and the food was fanastic.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation CelebrationWe can to Bolero for a Graduation Celebration for our two sons. My husband and I have been to Bolero's with a friend a couple of months before and I kept thinking of an occasion when we could return!! The boys had never been before, but they both really enjoyed the food and selection. We also ordered the seafood platter which was also wonderful. Just when we thought we couldn't eat another bite, our waiter suggested dessert and the cream soaked sponge cake and creme brulee sounded too good to pass up. The sponge cake was definately a hit and everyone made sure they had at least 2 bites!! Both boys are now looking forward to saving their money for a return trip to Bolero!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMsuprisingly kid friendlyWe visited Bolero for my husband’s birthday dinner, and brought along the whole gang. This included 14 year old twins, and 10 year old princess, and a 3 year old hurricane. The food at Bolero is consistent, straight across the board you are eating quality cuts of meat, cooked perfectly. The salad/sides bar is well stocked with some old time favorites (rice/potatos) and some different treats (Brazilian black bean stew) The kids really enjoyed it, and thought it was fun to try different things.... Birthday dinner Success!
must try - bacon wrapped chicken.... really anything wrapped in bacon is GOOD but this is GREAT
- grilled pineapple
- blueberry sugar grapefruit
- basa5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely.Lovely place. Food is worth the trip alone (the variety is surprising; fruits and vegetables are an exciting and unexpected delicious surprise). The ambience is classy while not being too stuffy which is great, and the staff always seem to be on the ball or willing to get you what you'd like.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWay To Go Bolero'sI booked my reservation easily online. The price was right for the service and food received. The atmosphere was nice. The salad bar was excellent. The waiters bringing the meat skewers - HOT - so good looking -loved this part the most! I loved my dining experience and I will be back! This place is perfect for special occasions. I decided on Bolero's as I wanted a nice place to celebrate my parents 31st wedding anniversary. My parents enjoyed it. My Dad is a hunter so he enjoyed all the different types of meats!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch was superb!The brunch is amazing. It's almost everything the evening dinner has plus a few different items, because it's breakfast of course.
at 21.95 it seems like a great deals.
I would recommend booking a little more in advance for this one. But it was extremely well done. I have been to the eveing one and once everything is done, it's 60$ a person. Brunch was 60$ for 2 people.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd time hereGreat restaurant, would recommend visiting at least once. Come hungry and skip the salad bar.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSo AmazingWe had a great time and were stuffed when we left. It was a nice change from the tiny portions many good restaurants serve. Plus the food was amazing.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat NightThis was my second time to Bolero and it was great. The food and wine were delicious and service was quick to get it all to us. I'de go again in a heartbeat.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBruch - a meal for the dayMy girlfriend and I went here for bruch. The food is fantastic, tasty and really good quality. We sampled all the bbq'd items on the menu and not one of them was disappointing. However the pineapple and ham are incredible. The buffet breakfast is amazing with a wealth of variety and quality. This is a great spot for a feast after a rough Saturday night or a nice family occasion and will keep you going all through the day5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome!!!!!We had looked for this restaurant two years ago when we were visiting from Lethbridge..so happy we finally found it..it is everything we hade been told ...great food..superior staff and the salad bar is to die for!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBolero Never FailsI've been there numerous times with different groups for different occasions and I was never sorry for choosing Bolero; it's always pleasant, enjoyable, unique and delicious.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLong awaited occasionFinally were able to get a reservation to this popular place. Waiter explained the routine of the Brazilian style (of which were familiar). First the salad and sides bar - low point of evening -disappointed on its size, its location (in the middle of a busy dining area), and small food selection.
Servers were prompt at first serving mostly beef dishes but also chicken and basa- very tasty . Never did get any pork loin. Would like to taste more sea food dishes. Wine service was excellent with a good wine menu to choose from. Of course no room for dessert which is a testament to the goodness of the main dishes. Service was prompt until the end of the evening when we had to ask for lamb and pineapple. Overall still a pleasant evening.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMReally dark insideI get the ambience they're going for, but when it's still light outside when you come outside after dinner in the summer, it's a little odd. The darkness wasn't as noticeable when I was there in December, but maybe lighten up a few shades in the summer?5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, Great place.Overall was extremely good food and service. However, the group of customers beside our table were extremely loud and seemed very intoxicated. Beside that, our experience with Bolero has always been outstanding.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBolero is a gem!We keep coming back, and not just for the pineapple (which is out of this world). Great variety, great taste, great service. What more could you ask for? A definite must-do in Calgary. Bon Appetite!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food!Love the food and the delivery but our waitress was a bit distracted. We waited for drinks, refills, etc for longer than usual.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBoleroThis was an evening out to thank some friends who had entertained me at a great restaurant in Moscow and were visiting some of their family members in Calgary, all thoroughly enjoyed it.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWe went for Mother's Day brunch - and it was fantastic! The kids loved the "meat on a sword", and sundaes for dessert. And we adults enjoyed the grilled veggies, various cheeses, and crab legs. Decent Eggs Bennedict too. Would definitely go again! (Oh yes, and unlike other places, they did not increase the price for Mother's Day. Kudos!)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCreative option for familiesLively atmosphere with a unique dining experience makes this a great place to go with a group and for special occasions. The atmosphere and buffet-esque food selection makes this a creative option for parents to enjoy eloquent dining along with the kids. Pricing format for kids is reasonable at $1.50 per year of age.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazibng had a great nightAmazibng had a great night with wife and teenage kids, will be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI chose the highest noiseI chose the highest noise level but it states do not recall when actually this was our only complaint of the evening as where we sat was quite noisey. Once some diners left the noise level was much better.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy amazing birthdayI went there for my 21st bday, I've been there before with family and thought it would be a fun place to eat. The hostess & waiters where very accommodating to us. They always checked up on how we where doing or if we needed anything. We all had the buffet and it was more than excellent! The food is different but not uncomfortably different. They served the best cuts of beef, ribs, chicken, bass, and lamb chops. Each meat was cooked to perfection and had a distinct flavorful taste. I also brought my own birthday cake & candles, they added sparklers to my cake when they served it to me. Everyone that is a foodie should really go check this place out, you will not be disappointed!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimeMy overall dining experience was great! Our server was friendly and very attentive. The other servers who brought the various meats were friendly as well. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions with family or groups. I would definitely recommend to others and would come back again!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBolero May 2013Great food and ambiance. 7pm reservation and the food came very fast to start (once per minute). After about 20- mins service came to a halt. Was in a table at the back and all the service was focused to the middle tables. Our service from once per minute turned into once per 10- minutes- it was like the back tables were forgotten .5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDifferantWe enjoyed drinks food and conversation spent 2 hours visiting with 10 fellow employee's the ambience was good for the night out.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
