    Service was terrible. Waiter was absent minded. Never refilled water; food came out at weird times and the dining table we were placed at was noisy and communal. Not what I wanted for my 60th!! Sad.

    We love Bolero and are members at Europa. The food is exceptional and reasonably priced. The tapas options and selections are plentiful. There is something for everyone. The service has always been professional and friendly. Last night Adrian was our host/server. What an outstanding person and very effective server. Best service in the Valley! We had a great time! Thank you.

    Watch out for the “upsell”. Waitress suggested/recommended a much more expensive wine when the one we ordered was out. The wine was an additional $9 / glass. $14 glass became $23 & exchange on our dollar upped it to $31. Good food, good wine but the upsell left a sour taste in my mouth.

    Took awhile to get service after sitting down at our table. Service then was OK but our server disappeared after serving food and we couldn't order another drink then finally gave up and waited to get our bill. Food was a bit inconsistent. The mushrooms and the garlic and shrimp were very good but the Paella was disappointing. The chicken and Spanish sausage were barely lukewarm and not edible though the rice was hot and good. Interesting that they say the Paella takes 45 minutes and ours came in 20 minutes.

    We stayed at Europa Village and ate twice for dinner and twice for breakfast at Bolero. This is perhaps my favorite restaurant I have ever eaten ate. It is truly remarkable. The filet and shrimp paella and drunken shrimp were highlights for sure. The casuela dish for breakfast was also incredible.

    Apparently the labor shortage is still a problem. The hostess asked us if we wanted to sit inside or outside. I said, "Inside, as it so dang cold outside." The seating outside didn't have space heaters operating. We were seated inside at the only open table (we did have reservations), facing the door that opened at least once every two minutes, creating a draft in the 60-degree weather. When a table opened up in another location, I requested the hostess if we could move. Her response was, "I will check and see it is clean." We waited for about five minutes. Our food arrived. While we were eating, she came to the table. "Do you want to move?" My response was, "Nope, we will just eat and run." It's too late now. The manager (who took our order) offered me a pot of hot water to keep my hands warm. My response was the same, "Nope, we will just eat and run." I overheard one server say to the table next to ours, "Sorry you had to wait so long. Can I get you started with a beverage?" The couple was already seated before we sat down, and we were 15 minutes in. It wasn't as if we arrived at the height of the lunch crush. Our reservations were for 1:30.

    Exceeded our expectations for anniversary dinner! The service, food, ambiance and overall value receive the highest marks. Their wine menu of Spanish wines won a 2022 Wine Spectator and deserved for the variety and value. Affordable to top shelf bottles (up to $900 on our visit) are available with assistance from your server to properly pair. I got the skirt steak which is one of the most flavorable steaks I’ve ever had and is on par for flavor with the best steaks at Morton’s, Mastro’s, Shanahan’s, etc. My wife got the Sea Bass and it was superb. Make sure to get reservations as there will be a line on weekends. The bar was full on Saturday night which added to the energy in the room.

    We went to Bolero and they had a buffet with such good food including appetizers, main courses and dessert which was out of this world! We are not usually ones for buffets but this one topped them all. The sweet red wine was our favorite too! Our server Marc introduced us to that wine and he was attentive and funny too. He made our experience a great one! We will definitely be back!

    Came for anniversary dinner, server was attentive and nice, but service was a little slow at times, but tried to be understanding of these times. Food was very good, we had croquettes, cerviche & seafood paella for 2. They made us a special dessert for our anniversary - bread pudding with ice cream that was surprising light for a bread pudding & we also ordered the banana brûlée dessert, kind of like a crème brûlée with bananas sliced inside. We sat on the patio since it was quieter than inside. Overall a good romantic date night. Would recommend.

    Paella came out quicker than the 45 minutes they recommend which was great. We had three types of cheese, an order of jamon, mushrooms and their version of bruschetta as tapas. Our waiter, Adrian, recommended the two-person paella and, given the tapas, this was the perfect amount of food for four with each couple splitting a dessert to finish the night. Great service, wonderful ambiance and a perfect evening in the Temecula Valley.

    We celebrated our anniversary with our three children. All enjoyed their food. They even made my daughter their version of a grilled cheese! we were so full we didn’t order dessert but because it was our anniversary they came out with a ice cream and bread pudding “Happy Anniversary” plate. The live guitar was awesome. The ambiance was relaxing. Overall we had a wonderful dinner experience.

    The food and service was really very very good. We will definitely be back. The review should be a five star, but the lighting/table setting could be greatly improved with some small changes: lower the lights, add candles and flower to the table, play some background music and etc. The outside patio had a great deal of flies, so we moved to an inside table. Install a fly zapper. Some of the outside tables had not been bussed maybe that was attracting the flies... it felt sort dirty outside.

    Probably the worst dinning experience of my life. the server was rude from the beginning . it’s like our table was an inconvenience to her it just ruined my sisters engagement dinner . also upsetting because the location is beautiful and the food was delicious and if it wasn’t for that particular server we would have even considered it for a wedding venue . pretty bummed out because it was our first time visiting a winery .

    The one blonde server that evening was the only one who appeared to have any service industry experience. She should be responsible for training the remainder of the restaurant staff. Bartender was dismissive, hostess was dismissive. Disappointed because the food was good but with no ambiance or views and the service experience will probably be our last visit. Also, based on the recommendation for 2 plates per person with a 2 person paella was far far too much food. If it appears that a table is over ordering, it should be brought to their attention instead of needing to take so much to-go.
