If you do this through Open Table you don’t get bowling! We were very disappointed when we arrived at our reservation and found out that the bowling is a completely different reservation. So ... if you want to Bowl make a reservation with Bol directly because it won’t be connected with your Open Table reservation. The food is ok. The bowling the FOLLOWING NIGHT was so much fun! BOL was worth it so do that for sure!!!!

I would recommend Bol to friends but i would tell them it is so noisy, hard to talk across tables because tables are so wide.

Bowling reservations are separate than dinner reservations, book well in advance, alleys fill up quickly.

I am writing a review in hops that it will either be fixed by the restaurant or with OpenTable. Be careful when booking a reservation as it is ONLY a reservation to dine. If you want to reserve a lane and bowl then you have to do directly. Had this reservation for over a month and when we arrived we were told we did not reserve a bowling lane and were seated in main dining room.

Sat for 70 minutes before getting food (apps). This place is more of a bowling ally than a restaurant. The service was poor and the food was below average.

Service was so inattentive that we had to ask a manager to finish our meal with a dessert order and after dinner drinks. Very loud room.

Amazing upscale comfort food
I go a few times a year, and I’m never disappointed
One problem...the drinks seem watered down

We were close to the door and there was a constant draft so we were chilly. The grilled cheese and soup was good but the duck ramen was a little bland.

Menu is nice and varied - something for everyone. Decor is stark, industrial. Noise level is very high - probably due to all the hard edges. Service is pleasant and efficient.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
