The makeral bean cake you have to try and the beertails were delicious as well. The fufu goat dish I wouldn't recommend. Very nice ambience and staff.

The waiter was really good at explaining the dishes and making suggestions. This was especially helpful since I've never had African food before. Food was really good and I would go back for it. The only ding I would give it is that we had to wait forever for our check and for him to pick up our check and we were the only ones there. But otherwise, it was a great experience.

I think that the night would have run a little bit smoother with an additional waiter, or an exclusive bartender to prepare drinks.

There was only one bartender and one server, but the service didn't lack. The server was friendly and very efficient. I would definitely eat there again.

Need to change the recording customers hear when calling. It is a turn off never to have the opportunity to speak to a live person and then not to get accurate info on the recording. Impossible to make an impromptu decision to eat here. I went on 2 occasions only yo find the restaurant closed. The recording didn't state this when I called before going.

From Our Editors

Chefs at Bolat immerse diners in West African culture via savory stews and tropical ingredients served at a slick black-and-red café. A mild dough known as fufu accompanies most dishes to balance spiciness and scoop up morsels of wisdom hidden under ingredients such as tilapia, plantain, or goat. Provided in place of silverware, rounds of fufu are meant to be pulled apart and remolded into small discs that can, like chopsticks or dining pliers, pinch bites of food and deliver them to the mouth's main opening. Bolat's table minders provide diners with sudsy bowls of water to rinse fingers between plates, elevating the authenticity of the West African dining experience.
