  • A Memorable Anniversary Experience

    Dined on 11/17/2014
    My wife and I recently celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary here and could not have been treated better. The waitstaff wished us a happy anniversary. Our table was appropriately decorated. The cold seafood "tower", consisting of king crab, lobster and shrimp was not overpriced at $28pp. A luscious spinach salad was divided between us. Our bone in rib-eyes were served medium well, just as we had requested and the sides of corn pudding and grilled asparagus could not have been better. We were given a complimentary dessert of their signature ice cream pie, and an excellent coffee service was a fitting finale. Without wine, our bill was about $230 plus tip, but it was worth it. We will definitely be back!

    While a nice restaurant, Bones didn't live up to its hype for our party of 6 first time patrons. The atmosphere was very pleasant, the steaks were very good, but not our best, the sides were warm and the service disappointing. We found ourselves waiting for the server to reappear and we felt ignored. We were 3 couples of empty nesters and dine out often, maybe this was an off night.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    The restaurant is just ok. Old school but no charm. The menu is uninspiring, most likely the same for the last 30 years. The food is just ok, but not worth the price. Some dishes extremely salty. The service was just ok but did not try to engage with us or care much. I don't mind expensive meals if the food justifies the price. But it didn't. Food was just fine, not good or great. I would not come back here because it's just not worth it. We did not feel welcome and will not be returning to this place.

    Another great experience at what I consider the BEST steakhouse in America. I have been a guest at Bones many times since the early 80's and have always enjoyed fabulous meals, attentive yet unobtrusive service, and a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. This is an establishment that belongs on every steak lovers bucket list and should be shared with family and friends. It is a great special occasion destination or, as was this visit, a good reason to introduce a fine steakhouse to my next generation. She loved it and so will you. We are already planning our next visit. Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy BTW, the Grit Fritters are a MUST HAVE for any true southerner. They are a tribute to the potential of a simple southern food tradition, I cannot recommend them enough...

    BirthdayRuined
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    As usual, Bones delivers great food and service at a higher that most price. If we hadn't recieved a birthday gift card for $150 (still cost us another $75), we wouldn't have gone due to Bones's traditional stratosphereic prices. Don't get me wrong, Bones is still one of my favorite steaks in Atlanta, and the service is fantastic. However, no cut of meat, hand rubbed or otherwise seasoned is worth their prices. Sadly, Bones will remain a "once in a blue moon" outing for us.

    Every staff member was unfailingly polite and genuinely happy to do whatever he or she could to make our dining experience as pleasing as possible. We ordered the rib-eye and the lamb chops and both entrees were superb. Great finish with the bread pudding and pecan pie. Although pricey, the experience was worth it and the food is superb!

    My filet was the most delicious piece of beef I have ever tasted. Cooked and seasoned to perfection, the filet was extraordinarily tender. Absolutely delicious. My visit was a birthday occasion. BONES decorated the table with bits of ribbons and soarkles (very subtle) and comped our dinner with the most amazing slice of birthday cake. The cake was layers of ice cream, cake, nuts and a drizzle of creme de menthe, an awesome confection.

    I took my daughters out for an evening of dinner and recreation as we were visiting Atlanta from New York. What can I say--the appetizers--lobster bisque and the crab and shrimp dish was exquisite. The Entree--NY steak was mouth-watering and my daughter could not stop raving about it! My eldest daughter had the trout/sole which was flaky and sweet. She also thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the crab cakes and we shared the mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. I have never heard or seen my girls love spinach so much! My compliments to the chef for an awesome meal and an experience we will never forget. P.S. The bread basket is a large loaf which is warm and flaky like a croissant and also delicious!

    This is really an exceptional restaurant. We are not from Atlanta and the traffic was unbelievable. I called ahead to say we would be a little late and there was no problem. Our wait staff was exceptional and the wine list; what a list! on an I-pad no less. We were impressed! We had lobster ( not what you come to a steak house for) but that is what my wife wanted and it was very good. The sides are served for all and we had asparagus which was perfect. The entire meal was wonderful.

    I first dined at Bones a couple of years ago. Although, I live about three hours from Atlanta, I make it a point to dine here whenever I am in town. I had been planning to ask my girlfriend to marry me, and decided that the ideal location was Bones, since we were going to be here to celebrate Georgia Tech homecoming with some old friends. Could not have picked a better location to ask the woman I love if she would marry me. The good new is she said "Yes".

    The food is excellent, a little expensive, but certainly worth it if you can afford it. The service is the best in the city. The drinks and steaks are cooked to perfection and taste better than any steak in Atlanta. I wish I could afford to eat there once a week but I can't. Total bill for two with three drinks was $268, including tip. But well worth it for the overhaul experience.

    Bones is one of the two or three top steak houses in Atlanta as far as food goes. What sets them apart is their acoustics. You can carry on a comfortable conversation even at their busiest times. I highly recommend Bones as a fine restaurant you can always count on and your guest will truly appreciate.

    I have been dining at Bones for several years and have always been impressed with their great food, impeccable customer service, gracious manner and attention to detail, which begins with the valet parking guys, extends through the Maitre D, and to the servers. They work hard to accommodate individual requests and are fabulous at making special occasions, well, special. On your first visit to Bones, you have to try the lobster bisque, the bones salad, a ribeye or veal chop (the best I've ever had), and any of their fabulous sides. I can't properly express my high regard for Bones, but suffice it to say, it's among my top five favorite restaurants and will always be at the top of my list for a great dining experience in Atlanta.
