The best meal we have had in years! We loved the food, the service and their wine specials. The seafood trio was perfectly cooked, which is a tall order for some restaurants. Get the BOLD fashioned as a treat. The best drink ever. It's not...cheap, but it is very special!More

Wow, I was excited to take my dad here for his 80th birthday-BUT they refuse a party of 10, even when I asked for a 6 top and 4 top that we just be next to each other they said NO, i guess they can’t...handle people talking to other tables. Andy the manager was not helpful, I guess he thinks his restaurant is too good for celebrating a large family. Please think about this the next time u consider this establishment.More

A quaint place with an amazing menu. We were seated in the bar area, but it was cozy and a nice atmosphere. The server was informative and did not rush us at all. We enjoyed our pre-dinner drink and then she brought us our menu's....I felt like I was in Europe because we were not rushed to leave so they can flip the table. The wine list was extensive. The small plates are not small; we had Cauliflower, Scallops, Brussel sprouts and they were packed with "bold" taste. The Seafood Trio was amazing! We topped off the evening with Creme Brûlée. Bold was fantastic!More

Wife & I really like BOLD. It's close to us in Texas Township, MI and their food is excellent. Wait staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Menu is limited, however, they have small & big plates and the selections are truly delicious. Their salads are...very good, as are their desserts. We like their whitefish, but their other entres are wonderfully prepared & presented. Chef Andy is very personable and his specials are unique and reflect an exquisite & tempting array of dining delights. Pricey, but we don't mind paying for excellent dinners out. We strongly recommend.More

The food here was very good and the waitress was very helpful with the gluten free options. All of our meals, appetizers and desserts tasted great, but they are just too over priced for this area. I paid less for a seafood meal at a...very expensive restaurant in New Orleans than I did here. $45 for a Grouper special is way too high. I would expect these prices at a fine dining establishment in a big city. If you don’t care about prices it’s good and a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere.More

Whitefish and small plates beef tips were following the scallop small plate appetizer . The salad, shared, was arugula and goat cheese with pears. Totally yum every one. Desert was bread pudding with chocolate and cayenne sprinkled pecans. Oh my. Wednesdays, wine is 40% off...by the bottle. Service was fantastic. Food amazing, and total price under $80 excluding the wine.More

Had a great dinner tonight! Fish and steak small plates were wonderful. Be sure to try the chocolate cake for dessert. Service was amazing-thanks Laura! Comfortable atmosphere with a plan to not rush you through your meal! What a wonderful concept.

Interesting menu with an emphasis on small plates. Quality ingredients, well prepared. Just a trifle pricey for what you get. I'll go there again, but probably not often.

A gem in small town. Every aspect of this restaurant is great. Service (reservations recommended) and Staff are just great. More importantly food is great (at the bar as it was a walk in). Will visit them if I'm in town

Always a pleasure. Had the chopped salad and small plate tenderloins. Asked for rare meat and got it. The chopped salad is just delicious, bacon, corn, romaine and dressing that does not smother the salad. (Have been trying unsuccessfully to duplicate it.) Love eating in...the bar area. Not really impressed with decor of main restaurant. Staff is fabulous (Jessica!). Suggest that salads be ordered before putting in order for main course as we find that if you order everything at the same time, it all arrives at the same time.More

I have to say that our night , could not have been better. We made a rather late reservation. They found us a spot , and the great service began. The decorum was very relaxing, and the drinks were so satisfying. We started out with...sweet pepper crab soup, that was delish. Our server knew her business ,and helped us with our decision for dinner. The Steak was perfect, and the Sea Bass was fresh. We will return soon for some dessert!More

Joined friends here for a Birthday Dinner celebration. Hadn't been in the area for years and forgot how much I enjoy Bold. Chose to go on Monday evening for the half off small plates (which are not really small!). Super interesting selections. Had a hard...time making a selection. We each chose 2 and shared them all.The Mulligatawny Soup special was incredible. It was a duel of the spoons to see who could eat the most. The Caesar Salad there is always one of my favorites. Service was top notch. It is not inexpensive so the Monday night special is an ideal way to enjoy a delightful meal.More
