Excellent! Grandmas celebrating sweet 16 granddaughter's birthday after Phantom. The appetizers - lobster nachos and shrimp tacos were interesting, tasty and pretty. The 3 entrees - just happened to be beef, chicken and fish -- were outstanding and satisfying . Waiter was attentive and helpful. Niice sweet 16 happy ending chocolate dessert made the meal special. Interior is classy with outdoor views. Lighting and noise level is pleasant. Food arrived timely and with lovely presentation. Location and parking with valet quite easy. Great addition for Cleveland. Hear they are doing Sunday brunch.

Food was very good. The noise level was so high we could hardly hear our waiter or our guests. I would visit again but would ask for a booth so the noise wouldn't be so loud.

Server - Danica (sorry if the name is misspelled) was beyond 5 star - she made the evening...Friendly, efficient, fun, warm and professional.

Valet was less than friendly. Since they are the FIRST impression, they should be more welcoming.

More Vegan entrees would have made our evening better

I would recommend but with one caveat. The food is pretty basic for the money. The steaks are good..but other steakhouses are better. The seafood is good..but other seafood places are better. I just thought everything was really under seasoned and underwhelming. No huge complaints.if you are looking for a nice restaurant..to give you that "out on the town feeling" this is it. If you are really into food. and want the best for the prices these places charge.. then this is not your place.

Our server, Phillip was excellent. Drinks and food were delicious. We started off with MAINE LOBSTER NACHOS which were amazing! Two of us had the Scallops which was a special that evening. Steak Kebas were also a favorite at the table. We had a great time and would definitely come back!

Matthew our server was awesome. Chris our bartender was amazing. I had the special on Saturday, Feburay 2, 2019 of the double surf and turf for $51.00. The 6oz angus steak was great, the asparagus was great, the mashed potatoes were great, however, the lobster tail was as small as the shrimp ( which was only the size of a gulf shrimp). Deserts were amazing also. It was a great evening other than that. I will come back again and give it another chance without question.

Everything was good except we asked for some bread and it didn’t come for a long time (it came when we were 1/2 way done with our meals). When it finally did come, it was rock hard. Besides that, great experience.

Bold is one of our favorite happy hour spots. The drinks, whether happy hour specials or off the regular cocktail menu, are always very good. Especially good value during happy hour along with the food. We came back recently to celebrate an anniversary for which they provided a complimentary champagne toast - a nice touch. The service and food has always been great and I'm frankly surprised they are not a lot busier.

This is my third time visiting Bold. First time was amazing, second time was still very good, but there were some slight issues with the quality of the food. This time may be my last. The service was average, long waits between visits by the server. Not that the restaurant can control this, but what happened to a dress code? There were men there in tank tops (never a good look but certainly not at a place where you are spending the money we spent) and women in tee shirts and sneakers. The worst thing was the restroom. In a word, disgusting. I always have felt that the cleanliness of the restroom is an indication of the cleanliness of the kitchen. If that's the case, Lord help us. The restroom floor was littered with paper towels, the locks on the doors were in disrepair and the floor looked like it hadn't been mopped in weeks. In an area where restaurants are struggling to survive as evidenced by several recent closures, it's sad to see that Bold seems to be resting on it's laurels.

Amazing waiter, who recommended a bottle of wine to split for the table when the chosen type was no longer available. Couldn’t have been kinder throughout the meal. Really appreciated attention to the table, just enough service.
