I love this place. Food and service never disappoint. There’s just something about the grilled pineapple that makes me coming back for more.

Awesome food and great service. They went out of the way to prepare meat as per individual preferences. They weee very accommodative to prepare desert as per our choice as it was finished in the buffet.

Only downside to this place is the value you get, cost us $130 for two ppl with one cocktail each. They use choice select meats to maximize profit. Totally get which is why I going go on a date night.

The food was good, they were not enough servers for the meat by any means so that made them pretty slow and for a Saturday night not to have enough staff that’s not good in my books. The food price was decent but the drinks were a bit expensive I thaught. I have been to better Brazilian BBQ’s with much quicker servers and way better selection in their buffet section, so over all it was mediocre for what it is. I don’t think I’d go back anytime soon anyways.

The experience was amazing like always. Went there for my birthday and the food was wonderful and the service was good. The meat always tastes amazing and the grilled pineapple is always a favorite of mine and can't be missed when we go. I would recommend this to anyone who is okay going somewhere a little bit more pricey but wants that amazing Brazilian experience.

Such great food!! My family absolutely loves Bolero’s! This visit they had no lamb and no banana cheesecake which was a let down, seeing as those are our family’s favourites. As well, we didn’t see nearly half of the skewer menu come around, and had about 4-5 skewers that circulated on repeat. Other than that it was delicious and as always very filling.

It was ok but was hopping for more. Service was friendly but the meat was slow to come around. We never had to red button up as even on green we had to much time between service and only got a small sample of the meat each time. We had to ask for the pineapple three or four time before we got any. Not going to go back

We have tried every other Brazilian rodizio restaurant in Calgary but Bolero is always the best. Our server tonight - Sydney was amazing, very attentive, and the food did not stop coming. Bolero was the restaurant of choice for our 5 year old to celebrate her birthday and all the staff made her feel special. We have never been disappointed with the service and the food. Thank you for making this a great birthday!!!

Everything about the restaurant was great,except for the atmosphere. For the price of food, Bolero used to be classified as more upscale. Now you get rude and noisy teenagers in the same area as couples looking for a romantic date night. Not much Bolero can do about it but maybe they can have separate areas. It was very annoying trying to enjoy our meal with teens yelling and swearing literally in front of us. Will go back but probably not for a special occasion.

We’ve eaten at Bolero in the past, and the cuts of meat and selection available was fantastic. But this time, we found the selection limited to a lot of beef, no fish and the salad bar had very little greens and what they did have for lettuce was sadly wilted. The service was good, but we found the cuts of beef contained either a lot of fat or gristle which made the meat tough and chewy. I’m hoping that this is not a sign of the economic times as we have enjoyed exceptional meals at this restaurant in the past.

Bolero is excellent Brazilian bbq. The food quality is top notch, as is the service. We had a celiac dining with us and our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. A great place for celiacs or GF. Great for other special dietary requirements like Whole30. They list all their ingredients at the salad bar as well.

Have been going to Bolaro for many years. However, was definitely not the same visit this time. Food was slower coming around. Sauces that are normally placed on your table had to be fetched yourself and asked for. Dirty dishes and glasses left for some time on table before being removed. Not sure if it was just a bad night but was definitely lacking compared to what we have had for that love range.

The overall experience was ok.
I don't know if I could reccomend it to my clients. The meat were good, pineapple was delicious, pork was dry and chewy, buffet was a typical variety( but nothing out of the normal for the cost per meal)
Sangria was delicious
