It was a quiet night at the restaurant but that led to some issues with the food. Lots of the meat was overcooked and had charcoaled edges the chicken was dry and tough. Some of the items on the list we only saw once where some of them came by multiple times. We have been at the restaurant many times and this was our least favorite experience.

My new Bday/special occasion spot. Celebrated my birthday at Bolero for the second year in a row. Food is amazing, staff is always friendly & entertaining! Been coming for over a decade & am never disappointed by the salad bar, meat selection, drinks & desserts. Grilled pineapple is amazing!

As a family we are repeat customers at Bolero's, and usually quite happy with the entire experience. This time however things were different. Our greeter was super friendly, as was our server Paul? Sadly, those were the highlights. First our table wasn't ready and we had to wait for over 15 minutes at the door. Also this is where the environment began to get uncomfortable, as it was so hot that some us were actually sweating for the entire visit. Then we found that the gaucho chefs were infrequent and we waited almost continuously for food. When we did get food there were a few favorites ie: Parmesan chicken, that were never served, and there was mostly bottom cut beef that came around. As usual, the pineapple and desert did not disappoint, and we always enjoy relaxing the ambiance and stunning architecture. Sincerely, Charolette Webb

As always; amazing service, high quality and delicious foods (that just keep coming!), and a great selection of salad bar items. Dessert is a must - even if you’re too full; I recommend the Tres Leches cake. And just a recommendation for the restaurant - keep the mashed potatoes, they’re the best!

Great restaurant that I will only be able to enjoy a few times. With two of my family members being vegetarian and out of town, I treated one of my other family members to dinner at Bolero. The selection for us was great and we enjoyed ourselves. Unfortunately, I will not be able to partake very often as the vegetarian selections are not substantial and the cost for those selections is extremely high for those offerings. I know that this is a Brazilian BBQ that features meat, but without a reasonably priced and adequate vegetarian option I will not be bringing my other family members.

My date had never been there before and by the end of dinner, she was very happy to have been to Bolero. The service was exceptional and made some recommendations for us to try and they had a few off the menu items that night that we tried and was glad we did! They had some delicious baked home made type cheese that they bought over that was yummy! Flavor of all the dishes were very good. You want to try everything at least once and you will probably explode! The BBQ pineapple is always something you should try there, its amazing!

It was good except for the kids screaming and running at the table next to us , and the fact that it was my mothers birthday and a cup of water was accidentally spilled on her you would think we would get a discount on her bill

The service was excellent however the cuts of meat weren't as tender as I remember from last time I was at Bolero years ago. There was a lot of fat on my meats and the ribs had very little to them.

Great place to celebrate our sons birthday. If you love meat, this is the place to be. The seafood platter was a great option for our guest that doesn’t eat meat. The Tres Leches was amazingly delicious. Friendly staff.

The food was great but the amount of meat they gave it wasn’t worth $45. It was overly priced for the amount you get and they take a very long time to bring it out also.

Bolero has been one of my favorite places for special occasions. This time it fell far short of what I was used to getting. The hot Dish buffet was all but empty... for quite a while, drinks took a while, the meat selections took a long time to start coming around and were infrequent. I was disappointed. Our server , tried his very best to save the night, and he did for the most part. He handled it, without trying to make excuses. Because of him , I won't let one off night stop me for going back, hopefully it was the exception not the new norm.
