Everything was awesome... servers, food, atmosphere... except one hostess who was rude to my wife. My wife spent 10-15 minutes in bathroom trying to decompress from her rudeness before joining our group. All in all an amazing brunch.

Service was fantastic, salad bar was fresh but the warm food less low and looked like t had been in the steamers for a while. We had a 7pm reservation and I found that some of the meat was kind of dry or that I had to ask for certain skewers to come out as they kept rotating the pineapple and only a few selection of meats. Maybe it was because it was the end of the night?

We had a blast here! The only reservation they could fit was at 8:45 for 8 people and since they closed at 10 that only gave us about an hour to eat, but they made our dining experience amazing even past closing.
They didn't rush us and they were very friendly and had fun! We never felt rushed and they gave us great service until we left at 10:30!!

Would definitely come back here for a friend's get together.
Staff was amazing. The manager seated us and he a gentleman. The servers were such great sports as well!
Keep up the great work!

A friend recommended Bolera for our anniversary dinner and it was worth it.
My one recommendation to the management will be to ask clients how they want their meat cooked. At first we were offered meats not well done but when we mentioned it, the server brought well done meats.
It was an awesome experience overall.
One piece of advice Do Not Eat before going. If you do then you will not have room to try all the meats. Yummy 😋

Our food was great as always, just seemed to be lulling more than usual. Our waiter was almost never available, we only really saw him every 20 minutes. I found that I was waiting for a drink, or a request quite frequently. However, the food is great, the ambience is very nice, and I would come back again.

Only downside to this place is the value you get, cost us $130 for two ppl with one cocktail each. They use choice select meats to maximize profit. Totally get which is why I going go on a date night.

The food was good, they were not enough servers for the meat by any means so that made them pretty slow and for a Saturday night not to have enough staff that’s not good in my books. The food price was decent but the drinks were a bit expensive I thaught. I have been to better Brazilian BBQ’s with much quicker servers and way better selection in their buffet section, so over all it was mediocre for what it is. I don’t think I’d go back anytime soon anyways.

The experience was amazing like always. Went there for my birthday and the food was wonderful and the service was good. The meat always tastes amazing and the grilled pineapple is always a favorite of mine and can't be missed when we go. I would recommend this to anyone who is okay going somewhere a little bit more pricey but wants that amazing Brazilian experience.

Such great food!! My family absolutely loves Bolero’s! This visit they had no lamb and no banana cheesecake which was a let down, seeing as those are our family’s favourites. As well, we didn’t see nearly half of the skewer menu come around, and had about 4-5 skewers that circulated on repeat. Other than that it was delicious and as always very filling.

It was ok but was hopping for more. Service was friendly but the meat was slow to come around. We never had to red button up as even on green we had to much time between service and only got a small sample of the meat each time. We had to ask for the pineapple three or four time before we got any. Not going to go back

We have tried every other Brazilian rodizio restaurant in Calgary but Bolero is always the best. Our server tonight - Sydney was amazing, very attentive, and the food did not stop coming. Bolero was the restaurant of choice for our 5 year old to celebrate her birthday and all the staff made her feel special. We have never been disappointed with the service and the food. Thank you for making this a great birthday!!!
