I love the food - and drink - at BOLD. I am never disappointed. Their pomegranate martini is my favorite drink. I wish they had more vegetarian options but I can almost always find something to eat. It is the place I take all my out of town company and they think they have chanced upon a real treat!!

A young woman, medium height light hair, greeted us. We had a 6 pm reservation for this Saturday night. She said, yes we have your table but you have to leave at 7:45 because we have another party reserved for that table. We were shocked that she would tell us this. It was inappropriate and rude. Apparently she skipped this... More

I heard around town that “Bold” was in contention to be one of the best restaurants, in the emerging Kalamazoo dining scene. Bold has plenty of potential but in the end it fell short of my expectations. Our waiter was friendly, he told us about a pork chop special that sounded good. Front of the menu consists of their interesting... More

This place is so creative and delicious. I would recommend it to anyone and you will always find something new and exciting on the menu. I try to go every time I am in town. It is a bit expensive but completely worth it!

A discussion with a friend centered on the best scallop dishes we every eaten. He recommended Bold for the scallops. I had the shrimp and scallop dish made with a white wine butter sauce accented with lemon, lime and orange juice instead of the andouille sausage and pepper sauce. The original would have been to spicy for me. Many thanks... More

Shane has developed a fantastic restaurant. The flavor combinations are outstanding! Everything we have tried has been wonderful. Go on Mondays when the small plates are half price, if you can work it out OR if there is an available table. They take reservations and you will need one. The chopped salad is a favorite and I get one every... More

I recently gathered with some tennis mates for a goodbye dinner. I had the BEST extra dirty martini I've ever had! Plus, I ordered a small plate of the Whitefish, which was delicious, slightly crispy outside, tender and flavorful on the inside, and it was served on a very good sauce. My biggest complaint is the price. Very pricey for... More

Great service, the chef is one of the best around such attention to detail in the dishes. Great wine list. Small plate options are good to try different things

A special presentation of great food, consistently. Currently on Mondays they discount their Small Plates. A good opportunity to try new dishes from their wide variety. Oh yes, save room for Creme Brulee for dessert.
