We love the flavors at Bold. Have been here several times and very much enjoy the small plates and usually order 3-4 to share along with a salad. We like to try many different flavors and this is an excellent way to do this. Have sat at the bar and at a table. Service has been excellent each time. We... More

If you are a foodie and is looking for a great experience then you must experience Bold. This is by far my favorite restaurant in the world. The service here is awesome and Shane the manager is wonderful and ensures that you have a great experience. Never a dull moment and the food is the best.. Try the cowboy ribeye..

Place is so overpriced and the fish is rancid. Not worth 110$ for two people and it made us sick. Made a complaint to owner with no response at all.

This is by far my favorite nice restaurant in the Kalamazoo/Portage area. The flavored of every dish are very Bold and flavorful. I love their Spicy Wedge salad and they have the best Filet that I have ever had in my life. I have gotten numerous times and it is always cooked to a perfect medium rare! Yum my mouth... More

Reservations a must. Food was outstanding. The tenderloin I had was "melt-your-mouth" tender, with just enough spices to be a little tangy, but not hot. After waiting about 15 minutes, we asked for the menus. After ordering it took quite a while for the food to arrive. We commented that it was a good thing the conversation was good, or... More

I have dined at Bold at least six times, including two Thanksgiving days and several birthdays, with my family. This is my "go to" restaurant in Kalamazoo for special occasions. The service is always excellent and the menu and specials are superb. I have never been disappointed. The tastes and presentations of their food are unique and wonderful. Their drinks... More

My husband had a wedge salad and a steak which was excellent, I had their seafood chowder and mixed green salad which was also excellent. Bold had a... More

I've been here about a half dozen times and it's always been great. The manager is passionate about his restaurant and the service they provide. He always comes to check on you, and makes sure everything is cooked to how you like it. The food is always fantastic and the drinks are amazing. Go on Mondays when they have half... More

We have given Bold three chances to give us an excellent meal and each time we left feeling like we've paid too much for average food. You can expect to pay around $65 for two people and that is with one glass of wine. You will enjoy good service.

BOLD is one of my favorite restaurants and probably one of the best in Kalamazoo. Excellent food and drinks. Fine dining quality and ingredients on familiar foods- that is what I love about this place. Favorites include the risotto fritters, bacon flatbread, BOLD shrimp, goat cheese dip, corn chowder, salmon, petite peanut butter cups, all the after dinner drinks and... More
