Bolero has been one of my favorite places for special occasions. This time it fell far short of what I was used to getting. The hot Dish buffet was all but empty... for quite a while, drinks took a while, the meat selections took a long time to start coming around and were infrequent. I was disappointed. Our server , tried his very best to save the night, and he did for the most part. He handled it, without trying to make excuses. Because of him , I won't let one off night stop me for going back, hopefully it was the exception not the new norm.

Food was even better than I remembered, our server was fantastic and the Gauchos (sp?) promptly brought out any meat we requested. The lamb was incredible. It was a bit noisy, but not excessively.

The experience is fantastic as always and service is amazing. I always coming here for dinner or birthdays.
Just wish the chicken wasn't so dry.
And with they had a better selection on the hot table.

We are pretty disappointed in Bolero this visit. Our friends were visiting from BC this past week and one of their must go to's is Bolero. While the overall experience was great and what we were expecting, about 5 hours after eating 4 out of 5 of us got very sick. We are all very disappointed and are not sure we'll be back.

It was our first time eating here and we would definitely return! My husband had the full experience and I went for a teaser platter. One of the meats I selected for the teaser was too spicy and salty so the server kindly let me select another one at no charge. Highly recommend the lamb. Overall a great experience.

One of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. If you like meat, you’ll love this place. Service was great, food was amazing, my 2-year old ate free and we had a lovely evening. Definitely come hungry! The lamb and steak and habenero pork are the favs for my family.

This was our first visit to bolero, been to their sister company smugglers more times then I can count. Bolero was fantastic. We had the full rodizeo and it was fantastic. Every cut of meat was juicy, flavourful and cooked perfectly. The service was quick and attentive. Can't wait to go back with friends!

We eat here every year as it was location of our first date... This year the service was SLOW we would get about 1 cut of meat every 5-10 minutes. The delicious cheese buns (arguable one of our favorite items) must have been having issues. We asked for them a few times and did not receive any for the first hour of our dinner. When we finally did receive them they were not hot, they were not amazing, and they only gave us 3 total. The meats selections were good we enjoyed most of them. The port had some issues as twice they cut me off chunks of nothing but fat with no meat in it at all...

It’s a good place and this was probably just a bad night for them.

Pampas downtown is same price though and arguable A LOT better. Would recoomend going there! They also have Groupon and costco sells gift certificates to save 30%

We enjoy Bolero, food is always tasty and the service is great. We wanted a later reservation but according to the app there were not later spots for when we wanted (we booked at 5.15 wanted 6pm) however the venue seemed quite empty until 7pm when we left.

Everything was delicious! They even made my wife a skillet of a variety of well done meat! Definitely worth going. The only complaint that I would have would be that sometimes we would get passed by with new skewers, so we didn’t try everything we wanted, even though we were set to “green”.

It could be because we were the first seating of the evening, but a lot of the meats were over-done (charcoal flavoured) and not seasoned well. In my previous visits to this establishment I remember the food being much better.

It seemed incredible strange that the entire staff were white males. Not that I have a problem with white males, it just seemed odd.

The person serving us was possibly the manager on duty. Although he took good care of our table, he kept making backhanded comments. They seemed in jest, but it was a little off-putting.
