Bones Ratings and Reviews

We were visiting Atlanta and wanted a steak restaurant locally owned instead of a chain. That makes Bones the perfect choice. Very friendly and knowledgable wait staff. We shared the seafood appetizer and shared the spinach salad. Each was very tasty and an excellent start. Wifey had the smaller filet and I had the NY strip steak. Each were perfectly medium rare juicy and delicious. Finished with a very different Pecan pie, made with finely crushed pecans. The coffee was served with a silver service cream and sugar. Very elegant and a great finish to an outstanding dinner.

Our main server was awful. He was an older gentleman with gray hair and a "don't give a sh*t" attitude. However, the "trainee" servers were exceptional and attentive and were the only saving grace to our meal. We ordered our steaks medium. Mine was well done and crunchy, and my associate's was medium rare. We didn't want to bother our server to send them back because we already felt like we were causing him grief even though we had not done or eaten anything so far. We agreed they were one of the worst steaks we had ever had. Our main server ignored us and was completely rude the entire dinner. We were in town on business and the night we went was our last night in Atlanta. We were looking forward to this meal all week. I would never come back and would never recommend it to anyone. My dinner companion felt the exact same way. We were prepared to have a pricy meal for good food and a good experience, but it turned out to just be extremely disappointing and bizarre.

Bones is one of my date's favorite places. I'd never been there before; this special occasion was to spend my $100 Open Table certificate. Wednesday night was very busy. This place is hopping. We had steaks. Mine was perfect. Hers was just a tad more done than she liked. Our waiter somehow intuited that it was not perfect and replaced it with a perfect one. We never raised a finger to indicate anything was wrong, but he somehow knew it was less than perfect. He helped me pick a fine bottle of wine, too. There's a reason people go there over and over.

I met my parents in Atlanta as I returned to the States after six months away. I found Bone's on Trip Advisor and thought it would make a great meal. It did not disappoint! My dad and I shared the huge bone-in ribeye while mom had the crab cakes. We also had spinach and mashed potatoes as sides. Everything was amazing!

My family and I went because it is highly recommended in Trip Advisor. we are from Mexico City and we like the good restaurants and good food. We liked it very much and if we go back to Atlanta, we will go again. Thank you very much for an excellent service and excellent food.

For the price paid the quality of the food was way off par.
My wife ordered a medium stake and the got a rare one.
My son who would normally finish his entire stake way before we did, only had half of his and left the rest in the plate.
My stake was full of cartilage that I had to totally separate from the meat and pile up in a corner of my plate.
I have never experienced such a bad stake in my hole life.
Service was good and attentive. They did not charge for my wife's stake as they realized they brought the wrong temperature stake.
The dessert was really good. So was the Malbec.
Mu hone stake from the fresh corner butcher shop is top notch compared to what we have experienced tonight.

We went to Bone's for our 22nd Anniversary for a first time visit. We arrived at 5:15-5:20 for a 5:30 reservation. There was no hostess at the hostess stand. We stood there for about 2 minutes and no one came forward to ask about our reservation. We were not the only couple who looked puzzled on why there was no one there to greet us. So we went to the bar. No wine list, they say due to a technical issue so we had no idea of pricing of glasses of wine. My wife was given a taste test of a Cab which she didn't like then went with a Merlot, I got a Pinot Noir. The bartender did ask our last name so I figured we were put into the system as "arrived and waiting". As I watched other couples who had come in after us be seated I had to flag down the bartender to ask, "Do I need to go to the hostess stand?" "Oh, no, they will come and get you." Well, eventually after another 5 minutes the man/host came to take us to our table. The host did pull the chair out for me wife which was nice.
Food-I had already looked at the prices on the menu so I wasn't surprised by them. This was going to be a celebration meal so price was a major concern. The bread comes in one loaf and is almost impossible to cut with butter knife so expect to tear it apart and blast crumbs everywhere. My wife got a crab/avocado salad that was delicious. I got a cup of Lobster Bisque that was flavorful but lacking any chunks of lobster, the pieces were sprinkled almost as decoration of the top. The seared Ahi Tuna in chili oil was fine but not worth remembering. She ordered the 12oz Filet Migon, cooked Med-rare, with asparagus side. I ordered the 24 once porterhouse with creamed spinach(not on menu but I had read about it). The Filet looked great to me but wife returned it as too rare. My steak was cooked correctly but wasn't amazing for the price of $59. I also had it topped with an Oscar topping that was limited in it's crab for $17.The Filet came back as medium =her happy. Dessert free-ok. Bill$275 Ouch!

We had a very pleasurable dinner. Relaxed with a cocktail before being seated, very pleasant. We were seated in the occasion room as it was my birthday and the staff made it a very special evening. I was advised by a friend to have a dry aged steak, ordered the bone in rib eye, WOW, fantastic. My husband enjoyed his Filet. Yes it is pricey, but worth the experience and if you just have steak and a side, affordable. Give it a try!

Ours was a ladies' birthday luncheon, therefore judging food on the salads that were ordered would not be fair. Some of us loved theirs, others were simply o.k. Request for a particular table/room was honored, which made the event very enjoyable.
Staff and service excellent.

First time to Bones. We made a reservation for 5 (4 adults, 1 child). Valet was quick and prompt. We were sat immediately and I, as the person who made the reservation, was greeted by name by the host, waiter and assistant waiter and always treated with the utmost respect.
Our waiter was Brian and I'll be sure to always sit in his section by request on all of our future visits. And there will be many. Not only was Brian a top notch server in all regards he went above and beyond to ensure my party, my son and myself were very well taken care of.
My hand had been bandaged due to a recent burn and when I ordered my steak, he glanced at my hand and immediately offered to have the kitchen cut my steak to avoid any inconvenience on my behalf.
My son (age 5) was also treated quite well. He ordered his go to meal, chicken tenders and French fries and was delivered a meal probably larger than any adult meal elsewhere. He plate contained 14 chicken tenders and what seemed to be a never ending pile of fries that we all shared and still brought home leftovers...even my son realized the vast amount of food and exclaimed "oh wow!" When it arrived.
After dinner, although we declined dessert because we had a birthday cake at home waiting, the waiter quietly asked if my son would be allowed to have cookies. He immediately returned with a small box of fresh, packaged cookies for home. He then asked my son his favorite color, and returned with his favorite colored balloon.
Start to finish, perfect evening. Well done Bones and see you next time Brian!

From greeting to treat with the check (yes expensive) it was excellent. Our 50th anniversary and we felt that every detail was perfect. The food was outstanding. Filet/lobster, filet/Crab Oscar and the mushrooms (wow). Feel like splurging....GO.

Expectations were high for this one. Kinda like eating @ Ruth Chris. Would not go back considering (4) of us ordered filet mignon medium and all were cooked from rare to extra done. Sides were disappointing as well.
Waiters and staff were attentive but slightly stuffy.
