To my mind, it's more like a Bonanza or Golden Corral, but a lot more expensive. Sure, they bring a lot of meat around, but it's not really delicious meat; it's just a lot of meat. I found the rib eye the most flavoursome. The lamb shoulder is tough and stringy, but it is when I grill it myself too.... More

If you're willing to splurge a bit of cash, this place is well worth it. Over 20 skewers of delicious meat, garlic buns and grilled pineapple. The atmosphere is moody and romantic, well worth it to treat that special someone in your life!

I have been to this restaurant many times and always enjoy it. We went on a weekday this time and I really enjoyed how quiet it was. In addition since it was less busy the servers came to our table more often. There was a slight decrease in the variety of foods out since it was slower but our waiter... More

Would say that Bolero is really good. However, we have eaten at a few Brazilian restaurants in the US and would say they are better. Have eaten at Gaucho in Canmore and would say that Bolero is better. The let down really at Bolero is the salad buffet. I felt that it was slightly better at Gaucho and in comparison... More

service disgusting, horrible kitchen meat burned up of coal, a table for two, caught with meat waiters for pants, all ran past, to the tables where 4 or more clients, plates from the table, no one carried away, got up and carried themselves in the bar. such a nightmare-before-seen

My first visit here, but I had heard great things. For meat lovers this is a great deal ... All you can eat for a reasonable all in price. Very tasty - a great selection of cuts and good mix of chicken, pork and beef. The wine list is typically overpriced but the food was fantastic. It's a nice changed... More

We have been to Boleros a few times now, and we love it. The service is amazing! And the food is so good. I have been there with my husband and son, and with my girlfriends for a girls night out. Of course the meat selections are wonderfully delicious, but I also like the salad bar quite a lot.

This was my second visit in two weeks and the whole experience was great. Our server (Paul) was very friendly and attentive.The food was amazing with good variety. The parmesan sirloin is one of my favorites, so delicious. Even the desserts were amazing. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone who really enjoys meat.

I don't know where to start. The entire experience was so dissaponting. Especially when I have been looking forward to eating here for years now. We made a reservation for our anniversary and you never would have known from the service. Not even friendly greetings from the staff, it impkies they are entitled to your tip and business. We waited... More
