Stopped here on our way through Altoona. Food was subpar and service matched. Ordered soup and it came out luke warm. Also ordered fish tacos and they were inedible. Pasta dish was good. Server never came by to ask how the food was.

Wonderful food, perfect atmosphere and an amazing overall experience. Would HIGHLY recommend a visit here. Great for a casual lunch or a special evening out. BOLD will also do private events and special occasions. Check them out, definitely worth it.

This is one of just 5 restaurants I frequent in Altoona. Highly recommend for lunch. Dinner is good also, but a bit rich for my wallet.

We came here hoping for a great meal but it ended up being a disappointing evening. We had made a reservation expecting it may be busy but when we arrived there were multiple tables that were empty. Nonetheless, we didn't see our waitress for some...More

We were optimistic about this place based on the reviews. The decor is ambitious; very dark shades of paint, art on the walls. But the food was meh; the clam chowder had mostly potatoes and few clams, the turkey reuben was excessively salty, and the...More

I love this restaurant. Kind of in a hidden area of the City of Altoona. It is in the heart of "downtown," but a lot of people don't even know where is downtown. Well worth the trip. Fantastic food, great service, lovely atmosphere. Love sitting...More
