We were at Bolero to celebrate my birthday with my kids, wife, and father.
We had a ton of delicious meats coming at us a couple of minutes after we arrived, and we all left stuffed and happy!
What more could you want!

It was my daughters grad, they didn’t even acknowledge it, even though I wrote it in my reservation and told the lady that called to confirm the reservation. Slow service. However our waiter rectified the issue.
Still took as 2.25 hours to finish our meal. Hard to dine that long with kids and special needs child. Not sure if I would return for a while.

This was my fifth time here and I found that the quality of the cuts of meat has decreased. Whilst some of our guests may not have been too responsive due to the server only coming to the same side of the table and there being 6 of us, one of the waitresses was quite miserable and it made for a less enjoyable evening for the ones closest who had to constantly pass meat around the table. The table that we were seated at was also very chilly and upon leaving I felt that I would not be returning anytime soon.

Great food! Only gripe with the meal was the seating - there was not very much leg room underneath the tables. Otherwise the food was superb; we’ll be back!

Good place for gathering, variety of food that you can eat, taste good, like the fresh berries most, all sweet.

If it can included a coffee or tea, perfect!

Everything was great. A bit pricy, some of the meat is quite grisly. BBQ cheese and coconut rice are my favourite.

It's a great restaurant to go to, food is good. They come to your table many times and you can eat as much as you can, but on the other side, it's a bit pricy, $250.00 is nothing for a couple of four.

food has changed a lot since I was there last, all the food was good and cooked well but 7 different cuts of sirloin? it was all the same stuff over and over. somethings we didn't even get to try

As for service Greeter at door was great! Even wished my mom a happy mothers day, Our waitress was good and very nice. There was an issue with one of the meat servers... 4 times she came to our table (Table of 3) She would skip my mother, we watched for it happen again 2 more times, by the 4th time my mother had to half stand up to make contact so she could get some meat... pretty disappointed it happened to her on mothers day

We had our Mother’s Day brunch yesterday.
I was trying to explain to the reception when we got there that we’re 15 mins early and the reception states “ who are you” with an attitude, I said to her “ are you okay? You look tired! “ She response “ yes I’m tired!”
I know it’s early morning on a Sunday 1030 hrs. Me and my family are excited going there and spend time together and to celebrate Mother’s Day, but being greeted like that is disappointing.
I would suggest to put a “happy person “ in the reception and maybe greeted “ Happy Mother’s Day “ to all or most of the mom whom she seated.

Cool, fun Goucho restaurant. All you can eat meat and a salad bar. Food came by ata torrid pace to start but as the place got busier we had to wait longer for more meat. To their credit the server asked us for requests and the manager even got involved and brought us meat! The grilled pineapple and pork ribs were a real favourite.

The brunch was just as good as the dinner service. This restaurant make you feel special. The service and food are top notch. I have been coming for years and I have never been just ok with anything, it's always been outstanding. Every time. Thanks to all the staff from the dishwasher up to the owner. Every one in this restaurant shows their true commitment to the guest experience and it shows.

Has gone way down hill from last visit. Servers with the meat rarely came around. Same selections over and over. Paid for the full experience however only got half. Restaurant was hardly full so that wasn’t the issue. Some selection were dry and tasteless. Not worth the price.
