Had the lunch special and it was delicious! I wish I could recreate it at home! An amazing soup and a great meal! Fabulous drinks and beer on tap too!

We discovered Bolivar through Groupon, and we were not disappointed. The brunch with Mimosas was fantastic! The wait staff was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was awesome with interesting art and nice high ceilings. Bolivar specializes in foods from Colombia and other South American countries.

Really enjoyed our meal here as we don't get to have South American food very often living in Michigan. Everything here is reasonably priced and if you don't want tapas, they do have ceviche and entree sized dinners. My wife had the Pabellon Sifrino, which was a generous protion of pulled beef over rice and beans. It was nicely flavored... More

This is a great place not in the middle of all the craziness of South Beach. The service is great, prices are not outrageous and whatever they had for the house Malbec was great! Empanadas to start - YUM. We each got different beef entrees recommended by the waitress and they were both delicious! Great place.

Very pleased with their rustic approach to South American cuisine. Right down to the early Peruvian corn scattered across various dishes. Blood sausage was wonderful. Good size portions, great for sharing. It's an expensive area and the prices her are reasonable for what you're getting.

Rey and Susan are great. Very attentive. The food would be deserving of a michelin star if it were in London. Very highly recommended

Glad we found TripAdvisor recommendations for Bolivar! Walked right in on a Friday night and found great service and delicious food. We shared a sampler of garlic shrimp, fried pork belly, shredded beef empanades, grilled vegetables, corn cakes, and more delicious items I can't remember. What I remember was it was all wonderful! Accompanied by a very fine malbec. Plus... More

Found the place sparsely populated on Super Bowl night, but our server was really wonderful and attentive and made great suggestions. We chose a sampler of 7 items which was more than enough for the two of us and we shared the leftovers. Wonderfully seasoned meats, fried white cheese, and beans anchored the plate with empanadas and coconut rice (devine!)... More

We checked YELP for a local place to eat and taste the many cultures of Miami. Bolivar was the perfect place. We ate out in front on the sidewalk cafe and it was a beautiful night. My husband tried a few different beers and I had the sangria. We ordered the empanada trio for appetizer and each had the Churrasco... More
