When we arrived. We had reservation and was not seated t the time of checking in. The host was very rude and unhelpful be had a horrible attitude. We asked why we had to wait after making reservations and he brushed us off. After waiting 20 min, he didn't care to come get us, instead I had to seek someone else to seat us.

I had the steak sandwich and it lacked flavor. It was also slightly over cooked past med rare. The service is impeccable, but I was underwhelmed by the food. Also, I would expect a far better bourbon selection from what is supposed to be Atlanta's premier steak house.

This is one of my favorite places to dine when I am in Atlanta. Thankfully I have clients who love it as well. It is always a special meal and excellent service. The staff at Bones definitely know customer service and they do it well, time and time again.

We went for a birthday dinner and had such a wonderful experience. The service was superb and the food was excellent . They had decorated the table for us and surprised us at the end of the meal with a mile high ice cream cake. Our steaks , bread and sides were all excellent. They even sent us home with a few goodies. Thanks Bones for a fun birthday celebration.

Overall the food was good, however, we came for the steaks and the steaks were not impressive at all. Both my Husband and I received very charred steaks and by the time our server got back around to our table there was really no point in sending them back as we had finished our sides by that time. Our salad, soup and three sides were good. We weren't a fan of their signature dessert, way too many conflicting flavors. Between the sub-par service (due to the server having way too many tables for a fine dining restaurant and our charred steaks we won't be returning or recommending which is such a shame because we had looked forward to this evening for several weeks! Certainly not worth the $200+ plus check.

Business dinner with a client. Made an advance reservation for 4, arrived and changed it to 2. We were given absolutely the worst table in the restaurant! Table at the bottom of the downstairs stairs, literally. High traffic area when I requested a business setting table with some quiet. Rude and insensitive to an advance reservation and request, I won't be back and will make sure I tell others traveling to Atlanta to avoid Bones like the plague.

Bone's, there is no place like it in the world. Great food, great service, great valet service, great bar service ... Great. I enjoy going to Bone's every time. Never had a bad meal. Never had bad service. I feel at home from the moment I hand my keys to the valet guys. Then the bar service while I wait (for my friends, not Bone's). The greeting at the desk. The waiters at the table. The goodbyes as I head out the door and pick up my car. If you don't go to Bone's you've missed one of life's true delights. If you don't love Bone's there's got to be something wrong wit you.

Have ordered the same items at Bones many times and this is the first time I have been disappointed. The dressing on the Bones' salad tasted almost like pure vinegar, the steak was charred so much on the outside that it affected the flavor (large filet ordered cooked medium), and the key lime pie was just average. Mushrooms were excellent as always. This meal was for a 46th wedding anniversary and Bones did not see that on the reservation so our table was not decorated as the one next to us but they did give us a free dessert after I mentioned this occasion after we received the check. Overall, not up to their usually quality which is normally excellent.

We came to celebrate our son's 21st birthday. It was far more wonderful than our expectations. While the food was truly wonderful, I have to say the service was so incredible we never wanted to leave. And the amazing birthday ice cream cake was so much fun!! My daughter in law comes from a family who owns several bars and restaurants and she is very critical of poor service. She had the highest praise for our servers. Thank you for making our evening such a lovely and memorable event.

Boring is the first thing that comes to mind and that is a sarcastic answer, Bones is absolutely the best at all levels and if you go enough you come to expect that from the staff and chefs so when you keep coming it seems to never change hence the boring comment. That being said they do a superb job from the Maitre D' through the table bussers. The food is spot on with temperature and the Lump Crabmeat Appetizer is the best I have ever had. Give it all the stars but do yourself a favor and eat there

An Atlanta institution that is just starting to look a little bit tired around the edges. The steak was great but over-seasoned. The wine list complex to read and difficult to follow from the iPad but had some good wines at reasonable prices. The service was old style excellent and can't be beaten. If you like old fashioned Peter Luger styled steakhouses you can do much worse than come here.

Celebrated my birthday here recently, and it was exactly what I wanted. When I made the reservation I noted that it was my birthday; when we were greeted by the maitre d', he knew this and said "happy birthday, we're glad you chose to celebrate with us!" I really appreciate this, not every open table restaurant seems to bother reading the notes added to your reservation. Our table had a sprinkling of confetti in the middle which made it fun and festive. The drinks, steaks and sides were spot on, as was the attentive and professional service. They surprised me with a slice of the insanely good mile high pie at the end. Loved Bones, will definitely be back!

Great Old School steakhouse, worthy of a trip to Atlanta! We had a chance to convene a business dinner at Bones and man we were not disappointed. The classic steakhouse look, feel, and execution is superb. Great job!
The professionalism from greeting us at the front door and offering us a pre-dinner cocktail, to bringing everyone a fork to share an enjoyable dessert, everything was terrific.
