Bold is one of those gems you never get a bad meal...the culinary creativity is surreal. Atmosphere is casual but trendy and service is above any and all restaurants in the Kalamazoo area! Love, love this place. Everyone we take here requests it upon their return! So glad they are right in my backyard!!!

The space looks a little outdated and plain but the food is amazing! The beef tacos are out of this world and so are their salads! I got the small dish fillet mignon and it was a good portion. Yum.

The food here is always incredible and our aerver, Jessica, knows the wines oh so well. Just a terrific night with risotto fritters, corn & crabmeat dip, plus a big plate of salmon to share. Heavenly!

We have been to Bold several times in the past year but yesterday this establishment disappointed at all levels. We were a group of 8 for dinner, celebrating a friend's birthday. After having been taken to our table, we had to wait about 15 minutes for our waiter to finally notice us and taking our order for drinks. We had... More

This is a fine establishment in a simple setting. Located in the corner of a half-empty strip mall in TexasTwp. We were amazed at the quality offerings. It is expensive for its setting but we felt the service was excellent as was the food.

We sat at the bar and oRdered from small plate menu and specials that were offered. Beet salad, Brussel sprouts, lamb chops all good. Pricey but worth it...a dinner well done! Service was very good also.

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!
