I love their new menu! A lot of variety including lighter options which are great if you aren't going home right after to put sweatpants on and don't want to feel 9 months pregnant.

Be careful what wine you order during happy hour. Ordered wind that we thought was house wine but ended up getting charged regular cost. Wine was good though.

What a fantastic design and ambiance in this restaurant! It's so inviting for a date night, but would also be a great place to bring family or colleagues. Very tasty food and great service, too!

Bold lunch service is solid! Their healthy options are tasty and appreciated. The “build your own” is an excellent option for people trying to limit their calories or carbs. The grilled chicken is always well prepared and never overdone. The salmon is another great option and the chef prepares to order.

Food was great. Menu was quite a bit different than we remembered, but was still very good. My only complaint would be where we were seated. The restaurant was pretty empty (6:30 Saturday evening) and we were crammed between two other couples against the back wall. I’m aware there were only two of us, but the three couples could’ve been spaced out a bit differently. All in all, nice night out

Valentines Day dinner no issue with the service in general. The appetizers were excellent while the main courses were just ok. The desert menu was weak overall.

Great experience, food and service was top notch! A little on the pricey side but expected for the location. Would definitely come back. Was surprised that it wasn’t busier for a Saturday night hopefully it’s busier during the warmer months.

Our group enjoyed our lunch. Service was prompt, portions very fair, and noise level perfect for a business lunch. My only complaint was that the tuna poke did not have traditional flavors. It lacked sesame oil, onion, and pepper flakes, so the flavor was a tad bland. I would go with another bowl on my next visit.

We arrived to restaurant to be greeted by manager. We then sat at the bar area and waited for the service to your table and waited and waited. The bartender came from behind the bar checked on the other table and disappear was again. There were 3 ppl at the bar and a couple eating at a high top... that’s it. There may be have been 7 ppl
in the entire place. Not only did NO ONE approach the table in the 10 mins we sat there. Not even the manager who just stared back at us.... sitting there waiting... and waiting. So we went next door to Lago and it was Fantastic.

Horrible service... pathetic manager

My first time having a business lunch at this restaurant. The noise level was excellent for business conversation. We all ordered salads and each person enjoyed their meal. I plan to go back for non-business dining.

My girlfriend and I stopped at Bold for the first time for our New Year’s Eve dinner. The food was really good, but seemed to be a little pricey. The atmosphere was nice, perfect for a date. I would consider returning someday.

Bold completely changed their menu from great steaks high quality food to handheld sandwiches and salads. They sold out. I will never go back, they lost any character that they had

Was a bit expensive, but the staff was very pleasant, the food was great, atmosphere was nice. Though we did visit on a Sunday evening which may be an indicator to why the atmosphere was as it was. I would recommend if it is within your budget.

The food was excellent, but the service was very poor. Had to wait long periods of time before seeing our server again. Witnessed what I assume is a manager yelling at our server for placing a tray on an empty table right in front of us and people he was sitting. Just uncomfortable and took away from the ambiance of the restaurant, which is too bad because the food was delicious.

The service at Bold was very good - seated quickly and served quickly. We started with the Cleveland Nachos and thoroughly enjoyed those. I ordered the Shrimp Tacos and was sadly disappointed. Two tiny tacos - the flour tortillas were served cold, or straight out of the package. They should have been heated-up. The shrimp and toppings inside were too saucy (I only tasted shrimp and sauce). I couldn't finish my 2nd one because I was crunching on shrimp shells that left on. Not ideal.

My fellow diners ordered the burger and Nashville hot chicken sandwich. They were satisfied with both dishes.

We had the best server I've ever had and I go to a lot of restaurants. Her name was Tomara (sp?) She was so accommodating of our large party. When we first got to the restaurant they had us set up inside. We asked if we could sit outside and the person who greeted us said no. She then talked to the server who said, no problem, just give us a few minutes to move some tables and set up out there! Then she proceeded to let us know that if we needed to substitute anything, she could accommodate that request. She made the entire brunch so enjoyable. Because we were a big party and she automatically was getting her tip it made it all the better that she was so service oriented and genuine, thank you Tomara, we WILL be back because of you. Also the food was delicious with lots of local meat options, which is hard to find! I appreciate that and will be back because of that. Great Brunch!!

My fillet tasted like pot roast and not a steak. It was not what I expected and was a little disappointed it did not taste more like steak. On the plus side, it was very tender. The fontina in the pasta stuck to the bottom of the plate in clumps. Not sure if that is how it was supposed to be or not. For my drink, I was not given a straw so the sweet muddled blueberry at the bottom of the glass did not mix with the alcohol at the top, making a very unbalanced drink. The creme brûlée was excellent.
