Located in town, so we did not know what to expect. It was early on a Friday night, had the restaurant all to ourselves. Wait staff was very nice and attentive. Dark painted walls, wood floors and crystal pendant lighting, made for an elegant, cozy atmosphere. Food was very good! Portions were large. Had the sea bass and filet mignon,... More

They have absolutely spectacular food and customer service. This place is great for a romantic evening or a group of friends. It can get very busy so I'd recommend reservations for dinner. Beautifully decorated and the ambience is superb! A++ rating

Looking for a new place for date night. Wow! What a lucky turn to have discovered this tucked away jewel. Beautifully appointed with Latin background music, patio seating and full bar. The pièces de résistance however is the food. Abundant portions brimming with bold exciting flavors. When you discover it for yourself you'll be amazed at the price you pay... More

My boyfriend and I came here after finding this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was only a block from where I have been working. We wore jeans and t-shirts. When we got there, we looked in the window at everyone that dressed in business casual. The wait staff didn't treat us any different even though we felt very under dressed.... More

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
