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

We really wanted a good customer service for dinner, so my husband made reservations at Bold and asked for the best service available. We received excellent service and had a wonderful meal. 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

I love this place. The food is interesting and flavorful. The menu is varied. The small plates are perfect for most appetites. The owner is proud of his cuisine and atmosphere. I like eating at restaurants that cook differently than my husband. This requirement means that we do not eat out often because few restaurants live up to my lofty... More

we had been told the best restaurant in Kalamazoo was in a strip mall in Texas Town ship and I thought it was a joke. But this is the best Place to eat in West Michigan. The wine list was very good and the small plates are just enough for two people to share a few. My wife and I... More

My husband and I moved here from Chicago and its hard to find wonderful unique restaurants in a smaller town. The first time we made it to Bold, it was amazing. We saw a dish being carried to another table that wasn't on the menu and asked our waiter about it. He said the table requested it, but he could... More
