Bones Ratings and Reviews

Atmosphere was great, but the tables are really close together and you can hear way too much of the conversations from the tables next to you.
However, the food was simply to die for...amazing seafood napoleon and lobster bisque...my steak a la oscar was cooked to perfection. I am not a grits fan, but the grit fritters were so rich and creamy, I could've eaten the entire serving. The finishing touch of the handcrafted mints and cookies were the icing on the perfect meal!

I expected more from this restaurant after reading many online reviews. My diet prevents me from eating many protein choices, but I chose the halibut ($36). My wife had the bone-in ribeye ($68). Both tasted good but they both lacked a certain "wow" factor one would expect from a place with such a reputation for greatness. The appetizer grilled octopus was better than the entrees and the truffle oil mashed potatoes tasted like "boxed" mashed potatoes. The Mile High Pie, despite its laborious creation according to Bones' website and the fact that it is free on your birthday, is nothing to write home about. Our server was impersonal and seemed to doubt wether it was truly my wife's birthday. We should have opted for the Dark Chocolate Torte instead. Overall, I think Bones needs to work on their perceived value against the cost of dining there.

Setting and ambiance are very nice. Our group of 4 family members were seated down a corridor which contained tables along one wall and locked wine collection down the other. Service was impeccable! The only snafu was having two glasses of champagne spilled next to my pants leg as the waiter dropped off coffee at our table. The staff apologized profusely and offered to pay for any dry cleaning if necessary (none was needed). Food was outstanding and perfectly executed for all of us. The corn pudding was outstanding. The steaks were exceptional and cooked perfectly. We did not partake in any wine, however, the selection appears overwhelming. We enjoyed our evening.

Bones was wonderful as always as we celebrated our anniversary! The meal was outstanding and the service was second to none. We had two waiters and they coordinated the service flawlessly. Bones is so consistently great - you can count on it!

Bones is an iconic old world restaurant located in the heart of Buckhead that delivers. Bones has captured the feeling of stepping back in time dispelling the idea that you can never go home. From the flawless service to the thoughtful wine selection, there is a reason this gem has withstood the test of time. The wine cellar offers a cozy nook to dine complete with white linen tablecloths and old brick walls. The seasoned service is refreshing. Bones is a must for anyone wanting to experience our gentile southern city at its finest!

No wonder Bones is so highly regarded in Atlanta. They did a wonderful job helping us celebrate our anniversary. The food was excellent and we treated so warmly from the parking valet to the host to our wonderful servers who met our every need. From now on we will celebrate all special occasions at Bones and hope to enjoy it at other times as well.

Expensive, but wonderful! I hate steak and also garlic. I asked about the scallops and risotto. The waiter double checked and substituted grilled asparagus for the risotto because it had a tiny bit of garlic. Also a wonderful ice cream cake on the house for my aunt's 80th birthday. Great old school place if you love steak!

This was a lovely evening. We took my brother to dinner for his birthday. The service was excellent and the food was great! They made adjustments for my food allergy (mushrooms -a lot of their menu choices have mushrooms or truffle oil) and they cooked both my brother's and mother's steak perfectly. We let them know in advance we were celebrating a birthday and they consistently celebrated with us. The host greeted my brother with birthday wishes when we arrived, which the wait staff echoed. The table was decorated with confetti. They provided an excellent complimentary dessert that was so large, the four of us shared it. This was a wonderful experience!

Such a wonderful experience. Came there for my one year anniversary with my wife and it lived up to all the stellar reviews. I will definitely be back and I appreciated the phenomenal service from the Bones staff.

Waiter talked me into the $60 2 1/2 lb lobster saying I could take it home and I do make a good lobster bisque. After dinner I asked for the whole lobster left to be packed which the waiter passed on to the bus boy. Out arrived only the tail squashed up in crumbled foil. I purposely left meat in the body and the legs. The bus boy returned with another box. At home I found that the body of the lobster was not the one on my dinner plate and had been picked clean. Had it been thrown in the garbage? No way I could use any of this very expensive waste.
Service was not the same as in January when I gave a glowing review. We had a special guest from Montana celebrating her 64th birthday but our table was ignored and passed from server to server. We normally leave a more than generous tip so there was no negative history to explain such poor service. This was not the $462.57 dinner for 4 that we so looked forward to.

I highly recommend Bones. I live on the West Coast and Bones was recommended as the best Atlanta steakhouse unique to the city. I went with four business associates and it did not disappoint. The service was impeccable; the food outstanding. I had a drink at the bar before my dinner companions arrived, and the bar service was top-notch.

Great Steakhouse. The service, the food and the wines are simply the best. I go out of my way to have dinner at Bones whenever I am in Atlanta. A true and traditional steakhouse. Old fashion service with great food. My guest were in the wholesale meat business . Gave the steaks 5 stars .
