Was at this local restaurant after highly recommending it to friends visiting from out of town. It's been a couple of years but we were disappointed by the mediocre meal, rushed service, empty restaurant, and overall past-its-prime quality. Not recommended and we'll be seeking other...More

Excellent Cuisine, good wine list. Service was prompt and friendly. Greek or western fare was offered and all was well prepared. Will definitely recommend as a fine dining experience

I've been to The Bold Knight for several of my birthdays and always been very pleased with the service and great food. The atmosphere is lovely, fine dining mixed with casual and family and it works well. The staff is always attentive and friendly. ☺

It was ok. The prices are high and I prefer the keg but it was a good steak house. It's also kind of quite a way away from where I live so it's not someplace it would go very often.
