    it was a tad noisy for fine dining but it did appear to be mostly business meeting dinners so talking shop is the appetizer of the evening for them. I brought my wife here for her birthday and the staff was VERY attentive which made for a wonderful dining experience.

    Dined on 10/25/2014
    Using a tablet as the wine list created all sorts of issues. The waiter was incapable of helping navigate thru the listing, making the selection process cumbersome. Net result was delayed wine service including our main course wine selection not arriving until food was half eaten. And that was after I had to chase down the waiter to get the wine delivered.

    Great food and excellent service. The meat is better than any of the high end chains. I think it could use a decor update, but you are really there for the food and the outstanding service.

    My husband and I had the bone in ribeye steak for two. For the price we paid, I do not feel it was quite up to par. Our steak had hard pieces of gristle in it and was just "average". I did, however, enjoy the attentiveness and outstanding service we received.

    Service was very good and the setting comfortable and quiet. We ordered a very expensive steak for two. Unfortunately, it was presented totally under cooked. Medium rare plus was delivered with a cold red center. The wait staff returned it to the kitchen. Not sure what happened, but it was returned in about the same condition but looking much less presentable or appetizing. It was very flavorful, but still under cooked. The staff made the majority of the meal complimentary, which eased the disappointment with the evening. We made this reservation for a special occasion and had very high expectations. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the chef totally messed up the evening.

    I loved it, the service was the best I have ever had at a restaurant. If anything else they sold me on the service, but the atmosphere is perfect for an intimate meal with someone special or if you want a great meal. The food was delicious, their lobster bisque was so flavorful and rich, easily one of the best I've every had. I got the bone-in filet, great steak, looking back on it I should have gotten it medium not medium well, they brought out a birthday cake with an frosting that was borderline addictive. I really enjoyed my meal but surprisingly the experience was better than the meal, the meal was amazing. And I would recommend anyone one looking for a special occasion. Was a little pricey, but to be expected for that kind of quality.

    Every year, my wife and I celebrate our wedding anniversary at Bones -- we've never left disappointed. No matter what we order, the food is always wonderful, and the service is best-in-class. Even though we only eat there 1-2 times per year, they make us feel like regulars who eat there every week - everyone we interact with knows our name, what we're celebrating, etc. If you value quality & attention to detail, you can't go wrong at Bones.

    Been looking forward for along time to return to Bones in Buckhead. I left somewhat disappointed, the service, wine and salad were as expected, but my bone-in ribeye ($58) missed the mark. Too much fat and the meat was actually a little tough. I should sent it back but then my wife, who enjoyed her filet, who have had to eat without me. Honestly, for less than half the price the Cowboy Ribeye at Longhorns is better and the price includes salad and sides.

    We had heard how great Bones is from multiple sources. We had a guest in and she selected Bones on a recommendation she had from New York! We were all impressed with choice steaks galore, worlds best baked potato, and fresh vegetables. Waiters are on the spot and knowledgeable about both Bones and Atlanta night life. We had no room for dessert, although they looked great as well. Comfortable and not rushed, gets a little loud as the downstairs fills up, but it's not too loud. It is expensive compared to our regular haunts, but SAVE UP-it is worth every penny!

    For the most part, I enjoyed my dining experience at Bones. There were 2 of us women in the party. The food was excellent, but I found our waiter to be somewhat annoying. As he interacted with us throughout the evening, he directed all his comments and conversation to one person only and hardly even acknowledged the other diner's presence. I found that extremely rude.

    20 years I've been wanting to dine at this iconic establishment. It was everything I expected. Simplicity. Relaxed but competent. Highly professional without being ism. And spot-on food. Wait staff shared the interest in great wines we brought, and gladly decanted. There's a reason why Bones has sustained its place at the top all these years.

    We used to live in Atlanta 12 years ago and Bones was excellent then. We were back in town to celebrate and I have to say Bones is as excellent today as it was 12 years ago. Superb service, wonderful food and just very very special. We love our Steak and we have experienced many excellent places to eat in the US, but this has to be number 1! To be this good for this long takes some very special leadership.

    Filets were all prepared as ordered, and every bite was delicious. Our party of 4 shared the truffled mashed potatoes, corn soufflé, grilled asparagus and spicy Brussel sprouts - all were tasty. The mountain high dessert is definitely one you don't want to miss, but it is almost too much even for two to share! The timing of food delivery was just right, we were well taken care of, and not rushed. This was our second trip, and we will definitely be back.

    We were visiting Atlanta with our grown Seattle children. We chose Bones as our Steak night of the 3 evenings we were dining together. We loved every minute of our dining experience. The FABULOUS steaks, the Bones salad, delicious corn pudding,crispy hash browns and spicy Brussels sprouts were the BEST food we had in the big city. We can't wait to return. Derrick was a superb server. We agree,Bones is for sure the award winning steak restaurant in Atlanta.

    Bones continues to deliver great food with the classic American steak house ambiance as they have done for decades. I was one of three in our party to order the bone-in fillet & each was prepared differently, exactly as requested. The sides, particularly the mushrooms & onions Really complimented the steak. Top it off with a slice of pecan pie & you have a wonderful evening.

    Everything was exceptional, the food the ambiance and the staff. There were many small touches that made the evening special, the free champagne to celebrate our anniversary and the small gift at the end. The steaks were cooked to perfection. I specifically enjoyed the mushrooms with my steak they were cooked to perfection with a great sauce. The meal arrived just as it should, the various courses weren't piled on top of each other there was just the right amount of time between courses. We will be dining at Bones again and not just for special occasions.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    Bones never disappoints, which is why it's our favorite spot in Atlanta. Unfortunately the last time we went, we had to sit next to the rudest, tackiest, most impossible to please table that kept asking for a "cowboy cut" not a bone-in (same thing). It was ridiculous. One lady sent her steak back 5! times for no real reason. BUT as always , the severs handled themselves impeccably. They never missed a beat, were completely professional and polite. While it's sad that some people refuse to have a good time, it's comforting to know the staff at Bones will always go above and beyond (even if you don't deserve it).
