will not be coming back

Very disappointed that Michael and Lyn are no longer working at the BOld Knight. They were the best. I came back and brought my family and friends back with me. We will now go wherever Michael ends up. Jimmy they are a great loss to your establishment. It was great while it lasted. Unfortunately I no longer recommend this establishment. If you want a good breakfast I recommend Flames on 4th street you get a lot for your money and great mimosas. Michael if you read this let me and everyone else know where you are at..

My mom and I went to The Bold Knight Restaurant for dinner yesterday. I was craving fondue, so the Bold Knight seemed like the perfect place to go. Our waitress was very nice, we were seated very quickly. We ordered their famous fondue of course, Their fondue was amazing! I ordered the Monte Cristo for the main course and my mom ordered the French Dip. They nailed the French Dip. Absolutley delicious. The monte cristo they made more like a sandwich, and it was okay, still good, but now how its typically supposed to be made. The environment of the restuarant was gorgeous, the bar looked so inviting, I know I will definatley be back to check it out! The prices were fair, and my mom and I were very pleased. I definatley recommend you check out the Bold Knight Restaurant.

Review Bold Knight Bistro

WE have been eating at the Bold Knight for 32 yrs. and were very disappointed with our meal on Spt.2,2011. lettuce was iceberg and not very attractive.Our meal was cold except for the baked potato and prime rib was very thin 1/4 inch also vegetable were cold and the au sus was on ly luke warm .Probably we should have complained but I guess we will not go back now that it is under new management.

Overall
Excellent prime rib and fondue

I have going to the Bold Knight for at least 30 years, I'm stil not disappointed... Last week we took my mother for a 70th birthday celebration and it was great. We ordered fondue and calamari for appetizers and had their fabulous prime rib for our main course. The good was great, except for the salad, it had brown edges (not good). But the prme rib was great, huge portions with plemty of au jus and horseradish. Really nice bar if you have the time, and their wine list was nice too. The waitress also remembered that I said serve the ""birthdday girl first"" when our meals came to us, as 3 of us ordered the extra cut prime rib, She later brougjht ice cream with a candle and we ended the evening singing happy birthday to MOM! We are definately going back. Next time we'll try the porterhouse! One more thing, I do wish that they still offered ""pride of the cattleman"", a great piece of meat!

Bold Knight restaurant in San Jose, CA

We recently dined at the ""new"" location and were pleasantly pleased with our evening. The restaurant is wheelchair friendly and the staff went out of their way to be accomodating. This is the best place to order a Monte Christo sandwich as they begin with 3 slices of cooked french toast (no soggy bread here) and layer it with ham, turkey and cheese. I order it served with maple syrup but other dipping sauces are available such as berry conserves. While the sandwich is only offered on the lunch menu they were willing to let me order it for dinner. Others in our party ordered different meals with the only down side being the Halibut which was thin and overcooked.

Food is very good!

Bold Knight Bistro has replaced the old Bold Knight restaurant, and the Bistro has a much higher class atmosphere. The food is still very good and the service is good. The downside is that the fondue is no longer included with your meal.

Overall
Horrible Service with excuses on the side

When we first walked in we were seated promptly, and the restaurant was mostly empty save for two other tables and four people at the bar. My wife and I were on a lunch break and wanted to get a quick bite to eat. We had chosen Bold Knight because we are used to getting good food there and for their famous Fondu. We our waitress came over to order I asked her advice on a few choices and asked her what would be quickest to order since we didn't have alot of time. She steered me away from my original choice onto a smaller more simple dish and assured me it would only take 15 minutes compared to 25-30 with the other. i said that would be perfect and we placed our order and asked her again if she could rush it. We got our appetizer quickly but soon we began to wonder where our food was. So I got up to ask one of the other servers if they could find out for us. As soon as I sat back down I heard our waitress yelling across the dinning area at the gentleman we had asked to check on our food. She was shouting ""its not my fault he wanted it well dont"" which she repeated three times quite loudly. When she then came to our table I asked her if she realized we could all hear her, she replied that she knew, and didn't care. A few min. later she brought our food. It took 29 min. (yes I actually was using my stopwatch). Normally a friendly apology for the delay would have smoothed it over for me but instead she blamed me for ordering my food the way I had, inspite of the fact she assured me it would only take 15 min. We quickly finished our meal and I left her a note with friendly advice and I quote...
""Instead of shouting across the restaurant, it would be much better to apologize to the customer regardless of who is right or wrong. Not only will they will be much happier and leave better tips, but they will leave with a postive memory of their dining experience here.""
We still even gave her a decent tip. And she followed us to our car and was yelling at us.

Overall
Excellent food, outstanding service. A good evening all 'round.

My wife and I had a delightful and delicious meal at the Bold Knight Bistro last night. The evening began with free valet parking and immediate seating. It was early and the large dining room was very uncrowded. As the evening progressed, more and more diners arrived but in spite of the size of the room, the noise level was very low. The various areas of the room are separated by low partitions giving the effect of several smaller rooms. Additionally, there is a large banquet room downstairs seating around 100 diners for special events.
We prefaced our meal with a Mediterranean appetizer consisting of a fine selection of sausages, meatballs, marinated mushrooms, grilled lamb and a flaky layered pastry with marinated grape leaf filling. Delicious.
My wife opted for halibut with fresh vegetables and roasted potatoes. The portion was very ample and, again, delicious. I had the Bold Knight steak, medium, with the same side dishes. It was more than ample and very tender.
We did not even consider the dessert menu because of the size of the entrees - more than enough to take home after the meal. A cup of strong, rich coffee topped off the dinner.
The restaurant has a small but comfortable bar and a waiting area with two plus leather couches in front of a gas fireplace. The restrooms are down a flight of stairs, but there is an elevator for those who might need or prefer it.
Our waitress Karen was also a delight. Good natured and open and a pleasure to be around. The bus-guys did an outstanding job of keeping the water and iced tea flowing and the dishes cleared...without hovering.
We've been occasional customers of the former Bold Knight on Monterey Road and are delighted to see the Bistro continuing the Bold Knight tradition.
We will definitely be back!
