Located close to the corner of Glenmore and Macleod we are Calgary's first Brazilian BBQ style restaurant. At Bolero the customer is in charge of the timing on our wide selection of churrasco(skewers) to be brought to your table by our Gaucho Chefs. Green means go and Red means stop. A perfect setting for any festive occasion as we offer a wide range of different, cocktails, wine, and beer. Dining with friends and family was meant to be fun, the Brazilian way!

A great night all around

Great cuts of different kinds of meat, My husband especially enjoyed the ones that were wrapped in bacon. The servers went out of their way to accommodate us. You have to try the fried cheese, it's amazing!

Perfect for special occasions or a quiet get together in a relaxed setting. Amazing quality of food served in the Brazillian BBQ way. Staff are very friendly and will keep bringing all meats, and desserts until you just have to say No. Or flip up the little top to yellow on the table to have a rest and they flip... More

First piece of advice. DO NOT Reserve online. There are 4 restaurant in one building. We reserved online and when we got to Bolero we were told they were full so our reservation got kicked into another restaurant in the building. We had been looking forward to eating here, that's why we made the reservation. They offered us a seat... More

Our dinner at Bolero was very good, far superior to another Brazilian BBQ we had tried. We enjoyed virtually every type of meat offered, and the service was excellent.

Not blown away by this restaurant, but by no means disappointed. I'll jump on board with several others and say the grilled pineapple was outstanding. I was really looking forward to the garlic bread, and after not getting it, thought maybe it was no longer served, but it finally made an appearance at the end of the meal. I'm glad... More

This was the second time my husband and I had the full 'bring all kinds of skewers of meat to your table' experience. It's fun and tasty to try the variety presented. My favourite was the pork and the pineapple. My husband enjoyed the steak. The buffet has salads and sides, veggies and olives. It is pricey, about $43 per... More

I have been coming here for the last few years. The food has always been good and service always impeccable. The place has become overpriced over the last few years though. So unless you can eat a whole pile of delicious and amazing animal's carcasses, I recommend going to the competition a few minutes away. I would still recommend this... More

This place is quite an interesting experience. Servers come to your table with a variety of meats for you to try on sword like things. There is a lot of variety so be sure to go hungry! There is also a buffet for your salad and starch items (loved the coconut rice!). It is a bit expensive, but worth the... More

We had been here more than 10 years ago and decided to go again for our anniversary. Ordered the full experience and although the food was okay, I can't say I feel like we truly got our money's worth. The ribs were so dry I couldn't even eat them, and the chicken was also dry. I was disappointed in the... More

Went there for our anniversary dinner. Went "Full Rodizio"....which is their salad/hot dish bar plus the rotisserie meat. There are 5 kinds of beef, two pork, lamb, sausage, chicken wings, bacon wrapped chicken and caramelized pineapple. The salad part of the salad bar was average in selections....reduced greatly from when I was there about 10 years ago. The hot dishes... More
