Great food and service. But there was a new girl serving and she needed to slice the meat closer to the center if the table as I couldn"t reach over to take it from her. Hopefully someone will train her.

Staff was so nice and friendly. The food was so delicious and there was so much of it. The desserts were also large enough that one would have been enough to share between 2 people. We would definitely go again.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Full salad bar and vegetable buffet. Nice wine selection as well as outstanding deserts. The buffet had many interesting entrees; sautéed vegetables including mushrooms, peppers, selection of potatoes and many other items. Some of the items were mushy and overdone and some items like the super tasty mashed potatoes were not hot. This is a problem with an evening long buffet but did not distract from our enthusiasm to try the specialty meats. The meats were outstanding with a nice selection of beef, lamb, chicken and pork. Some wrapped in yummy bacon and of course the rib eye and lamb was spectacular. All of the meats were fresh and hot of the spit with interesting spices and seasonings including habanero.
The Servers were attentive and congenial. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Bolero and would recommend this fine casual restaurant to our friends as a must visit in Calgary.

Bolero was the first Brazilian style steakhouse in Calgary. It opened in 2007 but we had not yet visited, we booked a celebratory birthday dinner on a Tuesday night. We had a 4 month old with us, the staff happily sat us in quiet booth slightly away from the busiest area of the restaurant (the fresco bar), as we requested. The service was wonderful, the meats (12 varieties) arrived on a regular basis and the fresco bar had enough of a variety to satisfy each of us. A highlight was the pineapple skewer, a refreshing few bites amongst the meat skewers. Our waiter brought us a large slice of their tres leches cake (on the house) for our birthday guest, a nice surprise and a tasty way to end our meal!

Our service was wonderful, made sure we had everything that we needed. Food was delicious, the fresco bar had many options and everything was delicious. We had the full rodizio and there was no complaints, it is a bit pricey however you do get your moneys worth.

Not the best cut of meats as there was a lot of gristle. Meats either too raw or too well done. Cuts better at Minas or Pampa.

Food was delicious. The decor is lovely. Staff were professional. The manager thanked us kindly for coming before we left and he seemed very genuine. My only complaint is the that the knives were quite dull! Strange when you're eating top sirloin which you can't cut through the grizle.

Great food and great service, early on when we were there some of the meat was a bit dry as though it had been out for a while. As the different meats were served we were able to get into some more moist fresh cuts! The ribeye was amazing!

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary there. We made an excellent choice with this restaurant!
They made our day so special, and made us feel as welcomed guests. Everyone was so great! The gentleman who was serving us was well versed in all the foods, as well as even having the bar mix up a special cocktail that was not even on the menu for me. We even had a special treat for dessert!
Would highly recommend this place for a casual meal, or a special celebration. Five stars!

I enjoyed Bolero, staff was very friendly, I have done the Brazilian BBQ before, first time at Bolero however! Food was great, could literally not eat any more if I tried, and they will keep bringing cuts of meat to your table until you turn the wooden disc over to stop, or pause, if that is your wish. Anything that could be improved? I don't mind well seasoned myself, but the person I was with thought all the meat was overly salted. Price wise it isn't cheap, but no worse than getting a steak dinner for 2 at The Keg would cost, and you get around 14-15 different cuts of meat at Bolero. Finally just have to repeat I really enjoyed the staff, they couldn't be nicer.

It was an ok experience... went with our kids who were 12 and 15. They barley ate any of the meat but we were charged full price for the 15 year old. They had a lack of choices at the salad bar and hot sides were warm to cold with little selection. Not the best for what you pay. Won’t be back unfortunately.

This was a great place for date night and we really enjoyed the food. The Gauchos came by at just the right times (not too early or too late) and always super attentive when we turned our block to 'on.

Our waiter, Derek, was great. He had given us a few suggestions on how to enjoy the Gaucho style as much as possible.
