The food was ok however there was too much that was undone. Lamb not cooked properly and beef over cooked and dried out. The only thing that was good was the grilled Pineapple. As for the other food at the buffet... Needs work and imagination. This place for 45$ a plate was more like an overpriced golden coral. It could be so much better with the food that comes from the kitchen if the service was done better and the buffet was better with more creativity and better tasting dishes to accompany the other things coming from the kitchen.
Come hungry! So much food to try. Service was awesome. We found it a bit chilly at our table, but they turned up the heat without us even asking. Love it when the staff can read our minds!
I love this restaurant. One of my fave ib Calgary 🤗
Great food and the service was excellent.
The staff is very friendly and approachable.foods are great, and also the dessert are good too.
The food was outstanding as usual. Absolutely love the Brazilian BBQ. The issue we had was with the gentleman that was serving us. There was a menu item that they were out of(who doesn't have a menu favorite on a Saturday evening??) and when the bill came one of my guests joked about getting a discount for the missing menu item, the gentleman serving us quite snarly responded "too bad, you'll have to come during the week". Well that went over well and then the manager/owner?? came over to apologize. When you have 18% added to your bill automatically and your tab is nearing $1k, a response like that is amazing. Sad to say but we will take our business elsewhere from now on. There are other Brazilian BBQ establishments in town that will gladly take our $1k outings.
This is our go-to brazilian steak house out of all the ones in Calgary. Great meat selection including grilled pineapple and parmesan garlic steak.
Awesome food and service. Always great!
We had a good time.
Waiter was there when needed.
This place is specifically for meat lovers. That's what they specialize in and they do it well. There is a salad/veggie bar with rice and mashed potatoes too, but that's not why you come here. It's basically a steak house, but instead of ordering an entire steak, you taste samples of different cuts of steak and other meats. And the meat is not disappointing. All of it was toasty warm, moist, and seasoned enough to add flavour but not cover the natural flavour of the meat. The one disadvantage is because you just have samples of all of their meats instead of ordering a single dish, every time you come here is going to be the same. Every time you come here the food will be the same; you can't keep variety by simply trying a different dish. So I will certainly come back, I won't come back as often as I would to other restaurants. But whatever you do, come!
I love how good they are at gluten free foods! It makes it an easy choice for my wife and I to attend. We brought 7 other friends with us on New Years Eve
Always amazing we love Bolero and always have.
As always Boleros qas fabulous. We always get great service and great food. I always leave extra room for the grilled pinapple. Cant wait to go back.
Great service from our Waiter, Good food, Great Energy, Fantastic Food Experience!
Wish they came around the table more with food.. server was great tho!! Supper nice!!
Great staff, love the ambiance, and they keep track of all the meats your table has had and they make sure you had the opportunity to try everything at least once
Our experience was poor at best. The meat was mostly over cooked and not much flavour other that the crust. The chicken wings were so dry they were not edible. The lamb was all over cooked to a med /well done and not pleasent to eat. The pork was not much better and while the beef was less cooked it was of poor quality and flavour. The food from self serve bar was displeasing to look at and did not taste any better. The beets and roasted pineapple were the best food of the evening. The service was slow though the servers were pleasant. Will not return. The meal for 4 was over $250 and not worth the money.
First time and I enjoyed my time at Bolero. Will definitely go back.
We have been to this restaurant a few times however alot of the meat this time had quite a bit of fat on it or was extremely dry.
Mix up on our reservation, didn’t seem to really care we were hungry and they made no effort to correct it. Overall great food and service.
The varieties in salad bar and meats were good. Although there was a lot of pork varieties which we don’t eat, they managed to serve us good amounts and quality of beef, chicken and lamb. Overall the service was good but sometimes slow. We waited extended times between servings, compared to other rodizio style restaurants we have been to in the USA
Service was excellent, Phil knows what he is doing, however the meats lacked flavor. I have enjoyed brazilian bbq at other places, that are more reasonably priced and much better flavor.....up the seasoning and marinades this isnt a seinors home.
Staff was great, attentive, friendly and officiant. The food was tasty perfectly cooked and came by frequently. We came out very pleased and our friends were happy at finding a great restaurant they can enjoy
Excellent service, our waiter, Mark, was attentive and professional, top-notch, he was great! Food was good but compared to previous visits it was not the high standard that I was expecting. My experience with Bolero is always memorable, so although mildly disappointed, I do intend on returning in the future because of the service we received and the goodwill this restaurant has given us in the past.
Really good food, service friendly and quick. First time dining there, excellent selection and prepared perfectly 👍
Great as always!
Food and staff are such a delight. They always handle my allergies with ease.
Sydney was awesome and deserves a raise. Recommend drinks
Way two busy for just two people, definitely a restaurant for large groups. Super noisy and it takes forever to get your meat and it’s almost always cold when it gets to your table. Lots of people hype it up but I wouldn’t recommend.
Dinner here was great as usual. Love the variety of meats and that they keep bringing it until you’re full.
Meat is delicious and it is a neat experience getting served at tables with skewers. Great place for a special occasion.
The selection of sides would have been good if there were any. They had run out of mashed potatoes at 6:15 and no more were brought out at all even till 8:00. They had run out of many sides at the buffet and were very slow to replenish. This wouldn’t have been an issue if the meats brought to the tables was quicker, most times it was 10 minutes between bite size pieces being served. The meats brought to the table were good however of the selection offered that evening we had only seen 5 different kinds of the 13 available. The stews looked tasty but you need a spoon for this which could not be found and servers are difficult to track down to ask for assistance in the buffet area, they must have been in the kitchen waiting for the potatoes...
Everything was really good except we waited a long time for our drinks order, in fact one beer was brought out but the cocktails took about 20minutes! Not acceptable at all! Katherine was great apologizing constantly about the delay
This Sunday the service was extremely slow....meat were arriving every 20 minutes!
Desserts and fruits at the end of our lunch 2,00pm were all gone!
This visit felt very different. We felt like we were being rushed the whole time we were there. Normally when we are at bolero it is very relaxed. This time not so much
Went here for a birthday dinner with 4 adults. First time here. Overall the food was ok, just ok, not horrible, but just ok. The restaurant it’s self was rather noisy, conversation at the table was a challenge. Probably not going back and probably wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
Brought my wife for her birthday. Was our first time there. The food is outstanding. From the salad bar to the unlimited meats, the food was non stop. We will definitely be back again.
Went here for our small company Christmas Dinner and it was fantastic. Derek was awesome. When we do come back with friends I hope to Derek again. He is such a joy to have looking after you.
Bolero has been steadily declining. Food is still good but the service is going down, wait times for food are really bad. Server stumbled through his speech about the beers they have. Floors in there are basically a skating rink. I will go to Gaucho next time.
