The menu was great and so was the atmosphere. Unfortunately our server was not up to par. We ordered a bottle of wine and she served the wrong bottle. Later we ordered a second bottle. At that time she admitted that she had served us the wrong bottle the first time. No concessions or apologies were offered.
The food was great and the two bottles a wine were also good. The service was just not at the same level.
Food was very good and at an excellent value. Service was just god awful and they automatically added 20% gratuity to check because we were a party of 7. 18% is the norm and our waiter didnt even earn that. Overall, food is very good but unfortunately, Bolt closes for good in 2 weeks
The decor was lovely and I liked the spacious feel. It was rather warm all night but they did say they were adjusting it. The service was slow, but they were able to accommodate our party of 10. Most of the guests enjoyed their food with the exception of those of us who had the Rigatoni Bolognese, it was an average sauce with not alot of meat and the pasta was overcooked. Try the pork-chop instead.
My wife and I went to Bolt as part of a date night before the Goo Goo Dolls concert. Bolt is our favorite restaurant in Raleigh and this is the third time we've been there. The food is always amazing, the service is great and we always leave satisfied.
We came on Raleigh restaurant week so it was really bustling. The wait staff was amazing though. One of those experiences where they would top off our water after just a couple sips. Never made us feel rushed, but they kept it moving. The food was outstanding and the price was great. We'll definitely be back.
The staff was overwhelmed during Restaurant Week. I had reservations for 6, was seated at 6:25, ordered at 6:35, and was finally served at 7:05. Other than the excessive waiting times, the food was very good and the service was okay.
