We used to come all the time for special occasions. Our favourite was filet mignon wrapped in bacon and lamb chops. Those are not on the menu anymore. We found the ribs, meats and chicken legs were all done and more dry.
We found we did not mind paying more for better cuts of meat. The service was great .

Went here with my boyfriend. I had been before and he hadn't. He's a big meat eater and definitely got our money's worth!

SOOOOOOO good! Can't say enough - especially the beef! And the grilled pineapple...don't need dessert - just keep the pineapple coming! It's just a treat for us though (maybe once/year) as it's pricey. (Just have to add that the next question asks "What would you recommend this restaurant for?" and the first option is vegan! Lol)

We went to a 5pm seating to celebrate our daughter's graduation from grade 6. We chose an earlier seating as it seemed more suitable for children, and it was quieter in the restaurant than past times we've been later in the evening when it is always full up! It was the first time at Bolero for both our children, ages 12 and 7, and they loved the novel dining concept. All the staff were attentive and kind to the children, and really made their first experience fun. I've been several times in the past with groups of friends, and this time with the family did not disappoint.

Phil looked after us very well. It wasn’t our first visit so we all knew it would be enjoyable. We,
Unfortunately, had an uncontrollable, screaming toddler in our mist which was disturbing.
We chose to dine with you in celebration of a fifty year anniversary. The meat selection was wonderful. We would prefer better side dishes. Thank you to all the Bolero staff. We will be back!

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.
