Named for a move from the Argentine tango, Boleo brings the dramatic flavors and sultry beats of South America to the best rooftop in the Loop for Chicagoans to enjoy year-round. Forget the 15-hour flight: All it takes to get to Boleo is a 15-story elevator ride to the top of The Kimpton Gray Hotel.View Private Dining Details
Fantastic service. Food was great. Live music. Excellent experience.
We had a great Wednesday night dinner and were able to enjoy the $5 happy hour skewers that were delicious! Also ordered terrific empanadas, yucca fries, and a scallops dish that we loved! Wonderful service and a very cool open atmosphere. We’ll definitely be back!
The server made the night..so kind and gracious. Noise level was high and portion of the ceviche was small but it worked for me.
First time, very nice ambiance, good food and drinks, will go again and take friends. Had to ask for water a couple of times when it was not very busy, but that did not ruin the experience overall!
Booked a reservation here because it was close tot the theater we would be attending later in the evening. we ordered several small plates and all of them were delicious. Service, Food, Ambiance was all very good. I'll go back.
Lovely find for late night as well as possible dancing. Very loungy but also can be upbeat. Great food and definitely something different
Great food, and ambience! Small plates are way too small for price. Do not go there hungry or you could drop a small fortune.
I was very excited to have dinner at Boleo because they had amazing reviews, but I was quite disappointed. The place is beautiful, the cocktails were good, the food was okay, but the portions were RIDICULOUS. The food menu is very limited, they have only like 10 options and for what it is, it is overpriced. The tuna and the ceviche were okay, but I literally ate it all in three bites. I would only recommend Boleo for a few cocktails. The waitress was very nice.
Great venue. Food was good but very small portions for the price.
We stopped here after the theatre. It is a lovey setting. Our drinks were amazing! We tried a couple of small plate items and they were both very good. The best was our waiter Nick! He moved a table for us so we could have a view out the glass roof into Chicago. It was a very nice jester. He also brought up complementary Champaign. We were celebrating our anniversary. Each time he came to our table he had a smile on his face! The whole experience here was a wonderful ending to our anniversary day!!!
Everything we tried was amazing. The Chef even made us a specific dish based upon his appearance on Beat Bobby Flay. Can't recommend it enough.
I proposed to my now fiancé at Boleo, and I could not be more complimentary. They were incredibly helpful and accommodating, they worked with my friends to position everything for pictures (unbeknownst to my fiancé), and they provided great service throughout our time there. I always want to spend my money for good people, and I will definitely be back here.
Also, the prices were great and ambiance/décor was great. I did not eat here, but I am excited to.
Food selection was very limited. Food tasted great, however expensuve for what is provided, not good for a meal. Drinks and atmosphere is great for lounging and socializing.
Our family of four enjoyed a great early dinner composed of small plates before heading to see Hamilton. All of the staff (maitre'd, server, multiple bussers) was very friendly and stayed right on top of everything to help us make sure we finished in time for the show. The menu is rather small, but has fantastic variety from ceviche (my favorite) through melt-in-your-mouth steak (big hiyt with my son).
Food was great, service not so much. I would recommend going during the summer when they presumably have more wait staff (and the roof is open).
Great restaurant! We celebrated our 2nd anniversary. It was our first time at Boleo. We got very romantic table in a quiet place. Our waiter was very helpful and fast. He explain for us all menu and was is the best. The food was very delicious as well as cocktails. Definitely we have to go there one more time!
Amazing drinks, great food, awesome service!
The food was interesting and delicious. Our waiter, Nicholas, was wonderful and made the experience accessible and fun. We had our teenage boys with us and they loved the whole experience, as well. We will definitely be back as a family in the summer to enjoy the rooftop dining!
Great spot for happy hour tapas/dinner before a show!
I found the food creative and delicious, especially the dishes recommended and / or served by the chef. My friend and I really enjoyed being able to choose from the tasting / tapas menu and the combination of ingredients in each dish was phenomenal. We each had two mezcal cocktails (Abuela), which we both really enjoyed. However, while I thought the pour was generous, the alcohol content could have been a little higher.
Amazing place to eat. Everyone was so nice and attentive. Food was fantastic and the drinks are to die for! First time here and I will be coming back!
Friendly staff and great food.
Service, cocktails, and decor were great. Food was mediocre.
This place is amazing! Great cocktails and really good food! The ambience is beautiful! I highly recommend it!
I didn't realise it was going to be so loud at 7:30pm, we were unable to talk without shouting but the food was flavourful and our server was very sweet.
The atmosphere and open roof made it feel very club / dance like. Which is perfect for after dinner drinks and dancing.
Luckily my nearly 80 year old Mom said it was an experience and could turn her hearing aids down.
Expensive drinks for what you get, the cocktails were watered and iced down. My cocktail only had few sips since it contained 90% miniscule ice. Unknowledgeable waitress, she could not answer some of the questions we had about the menu. We ended up saying that we will google it. The ambiance was okay but it was empty on a Friday night. Overall unimpressed, we will not come back or recommend to anyone.
Food was pretty good but had issues with service. Several times our waiter (Jason) just disappeared. Finally we asked for our waiter from the busboy and another came and took our next order. We asked what happened to Jason and she said he was on break. No other explanation, no apology he was probably on Break for at least 30 minutes. funny thing and all this was the result two other tables that were having dinner at that moment. Bottom line, pretty good food, spotty service and the music was much too loud.
We had just gotten back from a trip to Peru and were excited to try some of their small plates. The food was very pretty, but didn't taste very good. Almost everything was bland. The cocktails were great and when the roof opened the fresh air was very nice.
Excellent service and interesting, amazing food. Smaller portions. Great cocktails!
This place is a hidden gem in the loop!! First time dining here. Great experience! Food and service was excellent. Setting was perfect at this rooftop bar with a Latin band. Drinks & tapas were delicious. There were even a couple unexpected happy hour specials.
Molly was our waitress and was terrific in describing all dishes (small plates). Made my friend's birthday extra special. Will definitely be back!
We had a great dinner at Boleo. We stayed for the featured DJs in the later evening. Beautiful crowd made for great people watching. Molly was an awesome server with delicious recommendations for food and drinks. I'd recommend the arroz chaufa, maybe two bowls.
The Boleo is breath taking and the food was delicious and the service was equal to the taste of the food. Can't wait to return.
This was the second time we have been to Boleo and have enjoyed both times. Love the food, love the DJ, love the drinks!
Loved the rooftop Bar. I meet there with my friend who came and visit from Mexico, We loved Rice it was delicious and all the handcrafted drinks. Note if you order pisco sour note that it has raw egg.
Boleo? More like Bole-whoa. This was my first time coming here for a dinner date. I was a bit unsure at first if this would be a good date spot since my first 2 times here were late at night and the music was super loud. However, coming at dinner hours, it was just right. Although the first two times I was here I enjoyed the energetic, live music! The service was wonderful. The authentic Peruvian dishes and a rotating list of creative, hand-crafted cocktails make a perfect combination and the environment provided a unique experience with the retracted roof as the sun set over Chicago.
I have been to Boleo a couple of times and I haven't been disappointed. Energetic atmosphere, inventive drinks and wonderful food. The food is small plates so you can try a variety of items. The noise level it a bit high so don't go there for an intimate evening, but it does have a romantic/sexy vibe. Added to all of that, is the open-roof with great views of the surrounding skyline. Very unique and something to be experienced.
Not great food, ambiance was nice. The menu is minimal so you may want to eat a bit before :)
The absolute best octopus I've ever had in my life! Came in for the new Tropical Disco programming every Wednesday night and I was blown away.
Lousy service. Noise was unbearable. Several tables complained about the noise. Save your money and go to a real food/bar scene
