Located close to the corner of Glenmore and Macleod we are Calgary's first Brazilian BBQ style restaurant. At Bolero the customer is in charge of the timing on our wide selection of churrasco(skewers) to be brought to your table by our Gaucho Chefs. Green means go and Red means stop. A perfect setting for any festive occasion as we offer a wide range of different, cocktails, wine, and beer. Dining with friends and family was meant to be fun, the Brazilian way!

Gorgeous location. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Food was amazing, you eat until you are beyond full and still try to eat some more. Will definitely recommend

Don't know if it is because of covid or Monday nights are slower, but Bolero was absolutely fantastic. The staff were attentive, the food was great and the overall experience was tremendous.

Bolero's has become our families favorite. The food is delicious and hot when served . The wait staff is not overbearing. If you want something within reason they will make it happen for you. Hopefully they can introduce a wagyu cut next !

Very happy to see Bolero open again. After not going out for over 2 years we were thrilled to go to our favourite restaurant for our anniversary dinner! Thank you for making it such a wonderful experience

Great experience and great food. Services were exceptional and Ryan who was in charge of our row was receptive of what we needed on our table. Though this is not our first time coming to Bolero (last was pre pandemic), he clearly discussed and provided what to expect on our meal and how we could pause or continue our request for the meats that were being served during the evening. We have availed of their Rodizio eat all you can service. Will definitely go back and enjoy the ambience and food in Bolero again.

Ryan get a 10/10 for his service, friendliness, clarity of how the service goes and anticipating what we needed still on out table

The ambience fantastic.
My only qualm is that several of the dishes at the buffet were not as clean as they should have been.

The staff were all so kind. And the food was amazing.

We were having a rough day and the staff absolutely went above and beyond to turn our night around.

They provided hand sanitizer at the tables to make it easy to stay safe and they fully adhered to COVID guidelines.

I'm from BC and since my first visit years and years go, I have brought everyone I know in Calgary for their first time here. I also bring anyone I travel with. Everyone should experience this restaurant. It always has the best quality, delicious food and great service! Not to mention I think almost everything is gluten free for people that are celiac! 5 billion stars!

Went with friends for a great night out. Plenty of choices from the buffet for the side dishes and salad, they're non stop with bring around the skewers of meats until you tell them you've had enough. I have to say my favorite with the grilled pineapple.

It was average, not bad but not amazing. Nice touches weren’t there, the glasses were spotty, the tables weren’t aligned properly so both sides of the bench needed to fiddle with moving the table and seats to get in, there was no where to hang your coat, and the cold food was so cold it hurt my teeth. The meat was good but some cuts given to us all fat or sinew. The server was attentive and they made sure to get us the items we wanted. I wouldn’t avoid going back but it won’t be my first choice.

We've been twice now, the first time was excellent, 5/5 stars across the board, but this time - the second time - it was lacking, the food was still good, but the selection of salad bar options had changed, there were less high quality options - no asparagus, no smoked salmon, etc. As well, the service was lacking, the meat (and especially the pineapple) came around much less frequently, perhaps this is all to blame on New Years staffing shortages, but still, it was noticeable.

My experience on NYE was okay. It wasn’t outstanding, it was okay.
The fresco bar space is so small that you can not comfortable or safely move around collecting the food you wish. Then when we turned our marker to ‘green’ the meat came so fast, a person could not even think. And so much of the beef was so rare, I couldn’t eat it. I asked for something a bit more cooked, some servers could provide, some could not.
For the money, and the kind of specialty restaurant, I was expecting a better experience.
It was okay, it just wasn’t exceptional

Always the best customer service and they really appreciate your business. They treat you with respect and courtesy. They accommodated us on New Year's Eve with a table of our preference with no questions asked. Never a disappointment coming here. Try the tres de leches cake to top off you dinner. It's amazing!

The meat this time was blue rare for most of it- we had to get some meat more med rare for our daughter- and for the rest of us only take the outer meats - was not as good as other times we were there- that is a lot of money for ok food- the service though is outstanding!

We love the food, the service but I think it need some nice background music. Nothing crazy just to have better ambiance and to bring down a bit the voices around and the sound of bagging dishes. Other than that everything was great!!

Always great atmosphere. Buffet quality is very good. Good selection of meats and service of the cuts is very efficient. We were never waiting. Improvements, need to add a nicer salt to the tables, iodized salt is no good for the food. Food is under seasoned likely to appeal to everyone so salt is needed in some cuts. We prefer meat more medium rare to medium and at times it is more well done. Again I understand it is made for everyone however certain cuts like the rib steak should be more medium rare/medium ours was well done. Don’t cater to much to the well done crowd.

Our server Steph was fantastic, she was kind, took the time to explain the experience to those of the party who have not dined at Bolero's before and made recommendations. She checked on us often, assured our drinks were filled etc. The rest of the team we interacted with were great as well.
