We love Bolero. It is such a unique dining experience. We’ve come for birthdays and anniversaries so far as a couple and always have a great time. The food is to die for. And the Tres Leches cake! If I was ever a death row inmate, that would be my last meal request. A whole Tres Leches cake!

Hands down my favourite restaurant in Calgary. The food makes your mouth water and the Tres le ches will be your favourite desert. You pay for the quality of food that’s offered. I come here 1-2 a week. Make this your next stop you won’t regret it!

If you like meat this is the place! I love meat and I loved this place! Not only was all the meat glorious but the grill pineapple and cheese was delightful. Good luck keeping track of what your fav was since everything is just to good!!

We have been to Bolero on a number of occasions. It is one of those Brazilian bar-b-que's where someone brings around the meat on a skewer and carves you a piece onto your plate. Our waiter was fantastic - he was just attentive enough, but no so much that he was annoying. That said, I was not impressed with the people walking around serving the meat. In the past, their servers always treated the meat with 'respect' - but this time, they were just cutting it off the skewer in chunks, with no regard for cutting across the grain, an even thickness in the piece of meat, or making sure that each piece had spices, etc. I know it sounds 'finicky' and maybe it wouldn't bother others, but it is a pricey meal, and to get chunks of tough meat left me feeling dissatisfied.

All the meat was extremely chewy due to the low quality of cut or possibly being over cooked. I took my boyfriend for his bday and we we both extremely disappointed. Thought the meat should of been tender and super flavourful. Ambiance and service was nice.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Servers are nice and the items come around just frequently enough. You never feel rushed and the bacon wrapped chicken or sirloin is great. So is the pineapple.

Service was excellent. Space needs an update. Chimichurri was tasteless and I feel this condiment should be on point bc it’s Brazilian bbq. BBQ was great, but not the best Brazilian bbq’d meat in the city.

Loved every minute of it. Would have liked additional hot vegetable choices... roasted Brussel sprouts, steamed broccoli maybe?
Otherwise a fun, unique way to dine.

Had a great time at Bolero's. Reservation was at 6. There were very few people but is quickly filled up. Not sure if they were short staffed this day but service was hard to come by once it filled. Otherwise was great.

It was the second time I had been there and it was fabulous. There were 5 of us and each one of us enjoyed the food and the service. The choices were something for everyone and all the salads, and the food was very fresh. Will definitely go again.

The food was good enough but the amount the servers were going around left us sitting there with out anything on our plates the majority of the time. We only saw certain items once like the pork ribs, bacon wrapped chicken, and the pineapple glazed ham. The caramelized pineapple was under cooked or burnt the couple of times it came around... it was not the best experience we have had there..

Excellent food! I was surprised at the wide range of selection of meats that were served. The bacon wrapped chicken was my absolute favorite - didn't come around to our table as much as I had hoped, but that may also be a good thing. LOL. Delicious food, excellent salad bar to boot. This was my first time to Bolero and I will definitely be back!
