We all know that Bones has great steaks, but don't overlook the sides. The corn pudding is absolutely yummy. We got the larger portion, planning to take the leftovers home, but we ended up finishing the whole dish.

We were surpised with a private room when the reservation was requested to be increased from 4 to 6 people on Valentines Day! Best steak I have ever had and super service. We had a great business meal! Thank, Bone’s!

No better place to spend Valentines Day for lunch with my guy!
And use a Christmas present gift certificate from my daughter - it doesn’t get much better than this!
Although menu on web site says cell phone use in bar area only, several self important individuals actively used theirs- one with an annoying ring tone. Wish the maitre d’ would have flexed his muscle on that and asked them to cease and desist calls.

Excellent! My husband said it was the best steak he ever ate. The service was spot on. Loved the "special" treat for m husbands milestone birthday. Would definitely recommend and will definitely come back again if we are ever in Nashville. Thanks for a wonderful evening and celebration.

My party arrived on time and we were greeted very graciously.
There was a 5 minute wait, and once at our table our waiter was awesome! Only thing is my husband and I ordered the 20 oz. Rib eye which we knew we could share, medium. They gave us a well done steak and they slices it up!! Who does that?? All the natural juices would leak out and the steak would dry out. Honestly that steak was ALL wrong. Then they remade it and cut it up again!!! Then when we finally got our steak it was medium rare :( and by then everyone had finished their meals. So we just packed it up to go. For such a nice place the kitchen dropped the ball on this one. :(

Very comfortable seating. Attentive staff. My date had a strip steak and I had the crab cakes. We shared the hash browns and some broccoli garlic. We both felt our food was excellent.
Will definitely visit again.

I eat out at nice places like this every week. Me and a friend started at the bar and had wonderful drinks and appetizers. When the third friend from our party arrived we sat down in the restaurant and the problems began. Food and wine was fabulous but our waiter had a bad attitude. He slapped the menu's down and walked away. When we asked questions about the specials he gave a short rude answer. It put the three of us off the entire evening. One of my friends runs the food and beverage division for a major hotel chain and he couldn't believe the service we received in a established place like this. Every encounter with this waiter was tense.

Amazing how lack of service can effect how you feel when done especially for fine dining.

Bones is our go to for a special night out. I made our reservation about a month ago and requested our usual table when we got there someone was sitting there and the host asked if we wanted to wait a few minutes he thought they would be done soon or get another table we said we wanted to go ahead and sit somewhere else good thing they were there about another hour! I would say we are fairly regular diners here and I did not understand why that sat someone there when we had a reservation and requested that table the people sitting there must have had a 5:30 or earlier arrival and when we arrived there seemed to be other tables available still a great meal and great service!

This place is an 11 out of 10 - This was first visit back there with a gap of about 20 years in between. I made my reservations about a month in advance. We were there on time and maybe a little early.

Seated right away and drinks were served in less than 3 minutes.

Food was fantastic, service was perfect.

It was expensive but very well worth the money.

Bones lived up to the hype, but it is not as good as Gibson's in Chicago. The service was great, the Bones wine (their own from WA) was very good, and the food was very good. I had the bone-in Ribeye cooked medium rare plus and it was perfect. The hash browns were ok and for I could not stop eating the sourdough bread. It was memorable that night. They have a very nice staff behind the bar, they make great drinks and are very attentive even when the bar is packed.

What a wonderful time we had at Bones! Wendi and I met in 2016 and became fast friends. We have so much in common in ministry as well as friendship. She lives in Columbus, GA and I lives in Greenville, SC. We have discussed many times prior to our January birthdays the idea of having a girl's day in Atlanta. Well, we were able to squeeze in a wonderful lunch at Bones! It was fabulous. The service was impeccable (Brian)! The food was delicious! The host set the tone with the thoughtful birthday confetti! So festive! The experience was pure quality! We stayed and sipped our teas and talked awhile. Thank you, Bones, for a memorable birthday celebration finale... until next year!

Bones was AMAZING!!! I posted about it on Facebook yesterday. It’s like being in a private club. The hostess called to reconfirm in the morning. When I arrived and gave my name, she said “Hi Mr. Johnson. I’m Isabelle. We spoke on the phone this morning. Ms. Whitworth is already at the table. May I take your coats before I take you in?” They put us in a lovely private room with a ceiling made entirely of wine corks. We had salads and the most amazing hamburgers. The server came in the first time and said, “Mr. Johnson, thanks for reserving the table with us. My name is James and I will be looking after your table today. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.”
