Bone's is the best!
Bone's is the best in Atlanta. The drinks are bar scene were great, service was outstanding, and steaks were cooked perfectly. It was our client's birthday, and the staff did a great job recognizing her special day.

Bones is one of the best dining experiences I have ever had - and this happens EVERY time I am able to visit. The atmosphere is pure steak house, so those looking for ultra modern styling or a 7 course meal will probably feel differently, but I feel the atmosphere is perfect. The food is always excellent, the service has no equal. If you want a great meal, look no further.

Great service is what you'll find. We were celebrating a birthday and they really did it right. Greeted us by name and provided a very nice cozy table. Service was above reproach. I was disappointed in the lobster. Although the presentation was excellent. The lobster was dry and over cooked. Lobster should have been moist and succulent. Not dry and chewy. The steak could have had a little more flavor. Lane was our waiter. He really went above and beyond. Ask for him!

This restaurant is the usual when it comes to steak houses...a la carte. BUT, the steak was AMAZING!! The sides delicious and plentiful and the service was outstanding! Wines tend to be, IMHO, somewhat overpriced. Their house pinot noir was $15. A bit over the top I'd say but it was good. We will return and it's convenient on top of it all! Try it if you want a good steak.

I was surprised. No one that I knew had heard of this place and we took a chance. I was completely satisfied with everything. The bill was worth it!
Bones served a terrible steak
I made our reservation well in advance of my fiancé' birthday. When we arrived we were seated at the table right by the kitchen. The waiters whizzing by and the noise/heat from the kitchen was awful; we asked to be moved but no other table was available. We were served our salad and after some time we were moved to a better table. Then our entrees were served and my fiancé's porterhouse was full of gristle and was not cooked as he requested. I was not happy to pay the $450 bill and will never go to Bones again.

Consistently excellent, both service and food. We had the crab & avocado salad, filet mignon, onion rings, grit fritters, spinach and the mountain or mile high dessert and everything was outstanding! Can't wait to go back!

The experience was wonderful. Everything from the ambience to the food was top notch. The steaks and sides were fabulous.
Most Special of Occasions Done Right!
We recently came to Bones for my daughter's 21st birthday. All she wanted was to come to Bones for an amazing dinner, a fantastic "first" cocktail, and a memorable evening with her boyfriend, brother, myself and her stepdad. Bones fulfilled that wish in every way. From the special confetti on the table to the immaculate wait staff to the perfection of each and every course all the way through the last bite of Mile High Pie, Britt thoroughly enjoyed her birthday celebration. The complimentary taste of an exclusive new wine and a greeting from Chef Brent Asip only made the night that much more special. Well done, Bones! Thank you for making her birthday one she will always remember!

Made a small note on our reservation simply stating, "Happy 35th to us!" Upon checking in, both the Maitre D' and our table host wished us a happy anniversary and thanked us for sharing it with the restaurant. Arriving at our table, we were delighted to find it tastefully decorated with confetti and more Happy Anniversary wishes. After more anniversary wishes from our waiter Brian, we settled in with a fantastic bottle of French Bordeaux and the outstanding Scotch Smoked Salmon, which was enough for four. For dinner, we both had the filet, mine being the bone-in variety, which I'd never had nor seen at a restaurant. It was perfectly cooked and, I'm not sure how it was marinated/seasoned, but it was the most flavorful beef I've ever eaten - absolutely perfect! Our sides of grilled asparagus and a mixed blend of sautéed mushrooms were delicious as well. As an added treat after dinner, the restaurant sent over a delectable seven inch tall, four layer ice-cream cake that we could barely finish. Bones made our special occasion as special as it could be - with great attention to detail. Best dining experience I've had in the Atlanta area - they really outdid themselves. It took me 13 years of living in this area to finally make it to Bones - don't let it happen to you!
Satisfied in ATL
Excellent find, as it was my 1st time, & for Mother's Day no less. Food is excellent, & the place is deceptively big inside. I'm thinking of returning for Father's Day!!
Mother's Day Experience
I would definitely recommend Bones to all my Friends and Family . Exceptional Staff Exceptional Food Overall Exceptional Experience! Remember ....You get what you pay for @ Bones
Mother's Day dinner that was perfect!
As usual, Bones did a fantastic job right from the moment we walked in and was greeted with "Happy Mother's Day" and then on to a cozy table where the wait staff did an outstanding job and also greeted my wife with "Happy Mother's Day" The food was the best, cooked to perfection and Manuel our waiter to excellent care of our table and made sure we had everything we needed, which included there famous desert!!
Best steak ever
The thing I love about this place is the level of consistency. I have dined at Bone's quite a few times and the meal is always perfect, service impeccable and restaurant busy. The rib eye for two is the best steak I have ever had (beats Lugers and all the Chicago spots).
Excellent Food, Professionally Served
In a city with seemingly endless high level dining choices, Bones is consistently the best. Nobody does Cow better. The best cuts, perfectly prepared to your specification and then served beautifully and professionally. A deep and thoughtful wine list and top notch cocktails help wash everything down. It's expensive, yet still a bargain.

Incredible food and service! Highly recommend👍👍
Another memorable experience.
Returned to Bone's to celebrate a birthday as we always first think of Bone's for special occasions with our family. Great food and awesome cocktails; couldn't be better. Attentive service ensures we'll be back soon
The service was impeccable and very well coordinated. The meal was top notch. When the steak is great there is no need for sauce. My dates steak was cooked exactly as he likes (well done) without having to send it back and we were both impressed. This was a great birthday dinner.
One of the best
Went to Atlanta for a trade show knowing that I had one night to take customer out to eat. Found review for Bones as one of, if not the best, place in town. I told some locals that I was going there and a couple said "oh you should go here, or there". I could not be happier that I didn't listen to them. There were 4 of us and all of us think it was one of the best restaurants we have ever been to in any town. I personally travel a lot and frequent many nice places. This would be in my top 3. Awesome and can't wait to go back.

Excellent service, but I was very disappointed in the quality of the steak. It was very tough.
This was our first time dining at Bones. We had been planning for a while. The food was prepared as we requested. The bar service was fast and the attendant made some good recommendations as well. Overall we had a great dinner.
A reason for all the rave Reviews
Staff was knowledgeable Food was great Service was impeccable.
Still the best...
The most challenging aspect of any enterprise isn't achieving #1, it is maintaining #1. I've been to Chops, Ruth's Chris, Capital Grille, Smith & Wollensky, etc...Bones still has them all beat. Still the best steak in the ATL year in and year out. You cannot go wrong. They've been in the same spot for nearly 40 years and still have servers from when they opened. How many steakhouses have you been to that can make that claim? Which is to say the service is as good as the food: the kind that you barely notice but is always there when you need it and anticipates your needs. Food? We started with the grilled octopus and shrimp cocktail which were both delicious and get you hungry for more. Then we each had the small filet grilled just the way we requested. I am also a sucker for a lobster tail which was also perfectly grilled and presented. Not only delicious, but cooked perfectly so it was easy to remove the lobster meat from the shell. The sides are too many and too good to list but you have to try the hash browns. When it's time for your special occasion, power lunch, or to satisfy your inner carnivore, Bones is the place to do so.
