The place is dark, and it has a bad smell. The food was not good. And the only thing that saved the night was the karaoke.

The Scene: I was targeting a restaurant that offered South American inspired fare and Bolivar fit the bill. Decided to enjoy a dinner there. The Experience: What a lively place. The room was dimly lit and I thought it was going to be more of a place to have a romantic dinner. Nope. While we were there, we had singers,... More

We went there for dinner with no reservation, the place was almost packed so we had to wait for a few minutes before we sat on our table. We have waited quite sometimes to get a waiter attention to get our orders..finally i called for the closest staff that turned out to be the hostess but she didnt mind at... More

My husband and I ate here for our birthday and it was very romantic personal and they gave us a cake with candles as a gift! Great first experience with Columbian cuisine!

Laid back atmosphere with great Cuban influenced food. Live music with a club like atmosphere. The small bites are amazing to share and will keep you interested. Nice specialty drinks and descent wine list

I first came to Bolivars two years ago on a culinary tour and I had been longing to go back! It did not disappoint! Make sure to try the fried chicken empanadas wrapped in cornmeal. Three will not be enough! I loved their fried crab cakes and the crevice too! They had wonderful singer on stage as well.

If you are looking for a classic Miami restaurant with fantastic food and wonderful entertainment, this is your place! Everyone gets really into the live music and dancing and the entire experience had a very 'Miami flair' to it. Not to mention, the food was out of this world! A group of us split about a half dozen different entrees... More

Best way to experience a multitude of tapas. We ordered the mix of 7 tapas and couldn't have been happier. I believe they also offer happy hours on most weekdays. Highly recommend!
