For the price tag, expected the food to be better. There’s much better restaurants for less in the vail area. The bowling part was fun, so next time we won’t eat in the dining area and just do snacks while bowling.

Our food was very good, but it took almost an hour to arrive at our table. One in our party had ordered a burger well done and it was way under-cooked. The burgers were delicious as were the chicken sliders. We had a very tasty meal--not sure why the service was so slow as the restaurant wasn't very busy.

Service and amviance great. Food great except for flatbread Margherita pizza was not crispy on bottom and too much cheese for what I know as Margherita pizza.

I have been to Bol for dinner before and didn't remember it being as noisy as it was this time. I liked it better when the vibe up front was different than the bowling alley!

Super place to take kids for dinner and bowling! There is a wonderful, open area in front of the restaurant where kids can play while waiting for dinner. Food was decent and bowling was first class!

Pet friendly patio dining.

Great Caesar Salad. Wine by glass selection lacking quality selections, but good bottle choices.

The lobster salad was NOT FRESH. (Maybe because Vail is NOT near an ocean?). I should have taken it back. It Didn’t agree with me. Other then that our other meal was ok.

The bowling atmosphere made it a fun experience. (We bowled after dinner for the 1st time in years). Our waitress was excellent and fun—Despite the kitchen being a little slow because of the crowd. Our food was delicious.

Service was slow. Super noisy with screams kids. Meatball appetizer was super dry and the salads were really watery. The ahi poke appetizer was delicious. Good wine too.

Food coming from the kitchen was a bit slow and timing was off. Appetizers took 25 mins and then entrees arrived 5 mins later. Also - the combination of ceramic plates and glass tables is NOT good. We all felt like we chasing our plates around the table to cut and pick up our food. Could use place mats or the like.

I got the ahi tuna poke and it was delicious, my son had the ribs and my other son got a steak. They said they were amazing. My husband got the bol burger and said it was just ok. The fries were really good. Drinks were delicious, cool vibe and great service. Prices were reasonable for Vail.

Bol has become a favorite of ours in Vail. Absolutely love the experience. The food is amazing. The lamb lollipops untouchable. And it just gets better from there.

Good was good for its intended genre - slightly upscale cafe food. Server was unknowledgeable about food intolerances, though, and we had bad experience with everything ordered. She apparently did not know what we were talking about and/or did not know how to talk to the kitchen. Also, seemed blase about one error that was caught - didn't offer to re-prepare food, just a small discount. A few dollars doesn't do you much good if the food made you sick with pain and discomfort the next day.

Danielle tried to convince me that the most expensive plate, the steak, was med., rare, it was done and tough. The appetsrs and cedar was great.
I don't mind paying for a good meal, I refuse to be patronized by staff.
A talk about, "weird of mouth" advertisement might solve the issue. I've been coming to Vail exclusively for 7 yrs. I probably won't try Bol again. We'll see.
Good luck.

We had a cold and an unedible appetizer. We sent it back. The service was incredibly slow and underwhelming. The overall service was subpar and the bill was astronomical for what we were eating. Good ambience. We won’t be back.

Great food! We tried a lot of appetizers, everything was delicious! Cool ambiance. We were disappointed that we thought we were bowling with dinner and drinks. Our reservation was just for dinner. We watched Texas win the Sugar Bowl while we ate! 5 TVs in bar area. We will definitely go back!

We ordered burgers. Rare orders came medium. Medium orders were very well done. Glasses of wine are expensive. No house wine options that are more reasonable. Nice contemporary setting. I made rez on open table and it was the only restaurant I didn’t earn 100 points during my week in Vail.

This has been our go to restaurant for years. This was our first trip back for two years though, and while the food is still good, it feels as if they are trying to fit too much on the menu. However there is masses to chose from if you are gluten free, which is rare. Very lively and fun and great cocktails too.

Extremely Disappointed. We booked a table of 4 for a birthday dinner and specified Gluten Free. We requested house wine, and were charged higher than regular wine btg prices. The meal that the menu advised could be done gluten free came without the requested sweet potato fries, after confirming with the waiter that they were actually roasted, and not in a shared fryer, and that I wanted them. When questioned, the waiter said those fries had wheat on them. No dessert was offered (even though it was a birthday dinner which we advised when we sat down). Bill was incorrect (prices on bill did not match menu prices, and were upcharged) + we were charged for wine we ordered, but they did not have, and therefore not served. Pasta dish was served cold, and even though re-cooked, came after everyone else had finished (so their meals would not also get cold).
Room is modern and contemporary, but without atmosphere on a quiet night.
