Bold flavor ! I had the hanger steak special: 4 tender marinated strips over roasted well-seasoned potatoes and brussel sprouts. Chef knows his flavors! My daughter had marinated salmon with pear chutney and potato cake. We both had Crème brûlée...excellent! Atmosphere was dark and cozy. Very attentive wait staff.

Although a local, last night was my first visit to Bold and it was fabulous. Loved the atmosphere. Excellent tasting food and the presentation was perfect. It was busy - all tables were full - the noise didn't detract - it almost added to experience. Very attentive staff. Will definitely return and happy to have it locally.

Amazing dinner wonderful service. My steak was cooked perfectly. Being in food service my whole life I know the struggle of perfecting things and this guy has it down in every way! The only trouble I had was reading my menu I could've used a little more light. Over all great experience and would recommend it to anyone.

Casual retro setting invites you to sit for a cocktail as you are enticed by the array of beautifully presented dishes. The staff is friendly, the fish tacos are to die for! Has never disappointed.

My fiancé and I were looking for a new place, not a chain, and away from the madness of Penn State Homecoming Crowds. Having seen reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided on Bold. Oh my gosh - what a wonderful evening! Because I was on crutches we requested a specific table that was not set up at the time we... More

I frequent Bold at least twice a month and always enjoy the food. Roasted Red pepper soup is so unique and flavorful. Never had a bad thing on the menu.

Wife and I were delighted to find this place, which was not the sort of restaurant one expects to find in a small city like Altoona. The downtown location makes drop-ins from the interstate unlikely -- all the other diners seemed to know what to expect. The fusion menu was genuinely exciting and gets right down to the business of... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on our way home to Cincinnati from a trip through Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and upstate New York. We decided to stop at the Altoona exit for dinner. I pulled up the restaurant information on Trip Advisor and this one sounded the most interesting. We were not disappointed! (Cincinnati is known for our... More
