Not our first time at Bolero, great staff. Three things took away from a 5 star experience.

First, the gauchos were pretty infrequent.

We were disappointed in the selections of the supporting dishes, only 1 hot vegetable (we’d seem spinach dishes in the past) ... Not the time for empty serving trays.

Lastly there were some extremely loud, annoying tables in restaurant at the same time... not in our servers control.

Loved our meal there! Staff were so friendly, very understanding of our toddler who just wanted to shimmy up and down the ramp next to our table and the food was amazing! First experience there on Sunday and we would absolutely go again in a heart beat. We live in hidden valley NW so 100% worth the commute. Although it's a pain to get into from Macleod it is easy to get back on to deerfoot from that location to go home.

Was a fun night. Amazing service. Food was good just not worth it as we don’t eat huge amounts of food. So it’s pricey if you’re not a big eater. But it was a fun night out

We had an incredible meal and evening. We splurged and had the $45.00 per person sample all
dinner. The steaks were so tender, seasonings wonderful. Chicken moist and tasty.
Grilled pineapple with cinnamon was delicious. Not to mention the foods that were available from the salad bar area :beef stew, black bean stew.
Nicole was friendly. The gauchos were also very friendly and informative. They'd ask us how we like our meat done and from then on we didn't have to mention it for the rest of the samples. We were not rushed so could digest before the next round of meat would come by. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Would definitely recommend it.

Excellent birthday meal at Boleros. Fantastic service and food as usual. Had some items that we haven't had their before including garlic buns (cooked on a skewer like the meats), cheese (I believe it was a goat cheese with some other type of cheese which was quite good) and lamb sausage.

This was our 2nd visit and both times my wife ordered the sea food option. The first time the sea food was plentiful and tasty however on this visit it was poor both in quality and quanity. Our waitress apologized several times as she recognized that it was not up to par. Disappointing to say the least. Those who had bbq were very satisfied. That is why I cannot give a higher rating than average at this time.

We love Bolero! The food, service, & atmosphere were great. My one complaint (not really a complaint) is that the selection of meats coming around were not consistant at times. There were sometimes quite long breaks before a server would come around and then there would be multiple back to back. I also found that we had quite a few repeats of some items and then others we only saw once. We did request more grilled pineapple because its so delicious. Over all it was a great evening!

Service was fantastic, salad bar was fresh but the warm food less low and looked like t had been in the steamers for a while. We had a 7pm reservation and I found that some of the meat was kind of dry or that I had to ask for certain skewers to come out as they kept rotating the pineapple and only a few selection of meats. Maybe it was because it was the end of the night?

We had a blast here! The only reservation they could fit was at 8:45 for 8 people and since they closed at 10 that only gave us about an hour to eat, but they made our dining experience amazing even past closing.
They didn't rush us and they were very friendly and had fun! We never felt rushed and they gave us great service until we left at 10:30!!

Would definitely come back here for a friend's get together.
Staff was amazing. The manager seated us and he a gentleman. The servers were such great sports as well!
Keep up the great work!

A friend recommended Bolera for our anniversary dinner and it was worth it.
My one recommendation to the management will be to ask clients how they want their meat cooked. At first we were offered meats not well done but when we mentioned it, the server brought well done meats.
It was an awesome experience overall.
One piece of advice Do Not Eat before going. If you do then you will not have room to try all the meats. Yummy 😋

Our food was great as always, just seemed to be lulling more than usual. Our waiter was almost never available, we only really saw him every 20 minutes. I found that I was waiting for a drink, or a request quite frequently. However, the food is great, the ambience is very nice, and I would come back again.
