We just visited for dinner; what a great experience, we are only sorry that we did not discover this restaurant before. Very creative cooking, not your usual for the area. Its in Downtown and very well worth the visit!! If you are a franchise eater dont bother, but if you appreciate fine dining with a twist get there. Very nicely... More

After hearing about this restaurant for some time, we finally were able to get there. Located downtown Altoona, this is not an area that we get to very often. Everything thing we had heard, all good, was true. We had great service and excellent food. The menu is creative and trendy and the food was delicious. We found the atmosphere... More

Excellent food. Attentive staff. Not cheap, but won't break your pocket. Definitely worth your money. This is a little gem. Elegant diner, do not let the outside fool you... beautiful inside. Special menus regularly. Fancy!! Don't miss out.

Friendly, professional staff in a cozy, intimate setting. Great date destination. Menu offered a variety of selections that would appeal to most. Nice, creative drink offerings. Was with a party of ten and all thoroughly enjoyed the food. Menu changes with the seasons! Looking forward to the day I can return to Bold.

I had the ribeye my wife had the tenderloin and they were both delicious. The vanilla salted caramel cake was the best thing I have ever eaten in my life. Try it you won't be disappointed.

I wasn't sure what to expect for my first time here, but afterward, I couldn't have been more pleased. The service was polite, friendly, and attentive, and the food was awesome! They have quite an interesting fusion of ingredients that make each of their entrees incredibly tasty and very special in its own way. Top-notch fine dining all the way!... More

We met friends for dinner on a rainy, windy, and cold Saturday evening in May. They had also driven an hour to dine at this, our favorite Restaurant in central Pennsylvania. The food is worth it, and so is the service, and the ambiance.

I had a business lunch here about three years ago and it was quite okay, especially for the price. A little pretentious, perhaps, with several dishes offering a number of superfluous ingredients like pine nuts and "caramelized" onions, but it was nonetheless a good value and a comfortable repast. I had a turkey reuben that really hit the spot. The... More

This is the best fine dining restaurant in the area. The menu is very creative with so many flavors. I would recommend Bold to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic atmosphere or just for a quick tapas and drink.

Absolutely fantastic!!! Bold, big city flavors you would never expect in a small town. Everything was perfect from the atmosphere, to the staff, to the drinks, presentation, temperature, and top quality meals and desserts. Blown away! Cheers, Bill Sell and Bold staff! We'll definitely be back!
