As usual, the staff and the food were outstanding. I took the wife for an anniversary dinner, they decorated the table and made a point to congratulate us on the milestone... They make it all about the experience, nailed it...

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary, and Bones went out of their way to make it the best dining experience we have had in years. They made us feel as if we were the most important people in the place and even had anniversary potpourri on the table and a complimentary glass of champagne waiting for us.

Overall, Bones made us feel like family and I highly recommend visiting them for a unique dining expereince. Thanks, Bones, you knocked it out of the park!

This is the 1st time that my wife and I went out to dinner since the pandemic began. We went to Bones to celebrate getting out for the 1st time. It was great to see the same wait staff hostess, and others that we have grown to know over the years. Several of the wait staff stopped by our table to say they were glad to see us back and it was so nice for them to do that.
The food, service, and ambience were fantastic!! I highly recommend Bones for anyone looking for a wonderful fine dining experience, you should try Bones!! You will not be disappointed.

Classic steakhouse, spectacular lobster bisque, and phenomenal service. I loved that it was upscale and classy but not pretentious, and it was so lovely to eat without having to yell over music!

Service was not up to the expected level. Had two waiters and the shorter of the two was at least nice, though not competent either. The taller one was loud, brusque and couldn’t have cared less about our experience. His demeanor was like that in a diner where plates are crashed around and he seemed in a complete rush to get away as soon as he arrived. Extremely insincere as he shouted “pardon my reach” multiple times, thrusting his hand in front of us with no warning, then raced away. We were seated at 6pm and still hadn’t been served our first course at 7:30, due to an inordinate delay after serving the wine before taking order (a delay which we did not request). I went ahead and tipped &100 on a $500 tab, but those jokers didn’t deserve it.
Lovely hostess at front however. And young black man who seated us was professional, sophisticated and appropriate. He also pronounced our (very simple) name correctly, unlike the waiter who didn’t take the time to even try.

This was our first time dining at Bone’s. Great food and excellent dining experience! We had the shrimp cocktail and lump crabmeat for appetizers. We had the dry aged bone in ribeye topped with crab oscar, NY strip, filet mignon, lobster, collard greens, mac and cheese, and broccoli. The steaks were cooked to perfection! The collards were out of this world! The servers were very attentive and professional. This is the best steakhouse that my family and I have ever experienced. We will be back when we’re in Atlanta.

I cannot begin to show my gratitude to the Bones staff for making my 25th Anniversary so memorable. My wife was tickled pink about the “Anniversary” confetti sprinkled on the table and the intimate atmosphere down stairs. The food was superb, but the staff made it a truly special occasion.

Having eaten at Bone's in years past I had expectations for uniformly excellent service and food. The service was outstanding with our head waiter and the rest of the staff being friendly and attentive. Unfortunately the food was universally below par, not just for Bone's but remarkably average for a standout steakhouse. We had the filet mignon, the Wagyu strip and the salmon and sadly none of them were considered above average. The filet was cooked properly but the seasoning and crust were subpar and the steak overall was not flavorful. The Wagyu was expectedly tender for a strip steak - nicely marbled and almost melted in the mouth - but the overall flavor was just above average. The salmon was was cooked properly but similar to the other meals it was only average in its overall preparation. Our side dishes - the classic truffle mashed potatoes and the garlic broccoli - were far below average. The mashed potatoes had a nice truffle flavor but otherwise were not creamy, and the broccoli were nice cooked and heavily garlicked but did not stand out. The wine we selected was quite good and the deserts were very good as well. It was overall very disappointing, and with other outstanding steakhouses in Atlanta it lowers my enthusiasm for returning to Bone's.

I had high hopes for an incredible experience. Lobster bisque was just okay. Truffle mash was not enjoyable. Asparagus stalks soooo large and thick it was laughable. We spent a lot of money here, and the food was the disappointment. I would not recommend. Steaks were good, but one of ours was very rare and had to send back (ordered medium).

We always love the Blue Ridge Grill! I have even hosted business events in the lower level very successfully.

However on this night I ordered the special which was the bone in filet mignon. Not only did they bring me just a regular filet mignon once but they actually brought it to me again wrong the second time! So while my husband was enjoying his dinner on my birthday (amazing lamb chops), I was sitting there trying to wait for my dinner to arrive. I don’t think it was the servers fault but I had to indicate it in my rating somehow. He left one of the fillets with me but I didn’t want to ruin my appetite. Finally on the 3rd try my entrée came but it was underdone for my liking so we ended up taking it home.
I mainly ate the side dishes that night which are always delicious but I was quite disappointed and it certainly was not the typical experience.
