Service was somewhat slower than normal. I do however realize it is difficult to hire quality cooks and servers!
We travel several times a year to Atlanta and Bones is a constant stop for us!

I took my two single nephews out for a Birthday celebration. They had never been to Bones. I wanted them to have this old time Atlanta Restaurant experience. I usually let them choose the restaurant, but this time I told them I would choose.

The waiter was very attentive. It was not too loud. We ordered a variety of food, all excellent as I knew it would be from my previous visits. Steaks our favorite. Sides and desserts, especially Mountain High Pie awesome.
One of my nephews is attending Emory Medical School, the other has a great job as a graduated from Ga. Tech. They both watch their money, so this was a treat for them . I think they were spoiled. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Most defiantly.

Exceptional. The one word that sums up everything about our experience at Bones.

We went for our anniversary and told them upon arriving. Immediately they tailored the rest of our evening around our anniversary.

10/10 on everything and will return

the service, drinks, appetizers, and desert were off the charts great.....however, the 4 different steaks were not up to expectations....a little disappointing for the prices.

Main course is always exceptional. Sides are served ala cart allowing you to choose several options when in a crowd of 4 or more.

The pecan pie to finish it off is somewhat unique and outstanding.

The food was excellent, and the service was outstanding!

The only negative was the lack of masks or face coverings on the staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. The small plastic mouth/face visors looked ridiculous. If the restaurant truly a cares for the safety of their guests AND staff, then proper face masks or coverings should be required.

The food and service was phenomenal. We said we were there for our one year anniversary and they had put confetti on the table for us. Such a small gesture went such a long way for us. A special touch to our night. They surprised us with dessert at the end of our meal. They really went above and beyond to make our one year special and I’m so glad we chose Bones to celebrate. Would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone!

One of the best steakhouses around--first class operation from the minute you walk in--bar service is top notch, and dinner follows suit--have had the same waiter last few times in and he knows our group well-- this place thrives on knowing its customers and the entire experience is a real treat

The service was excellent. I really enjoyed my crab stuffed trout. My wife was ok with her ribeye. The onion rings were delicious. They really took good care of us because it was our anniversary that came with a complimentary ice cream dessert!! Good time overall

I was very happy to be able to dine at Bones again. The staff took all necessary precautions with masks and distances between tables. The steaks and sides were prepared as ordered and the quality of the meal was excellent. I noted the ambiance as four stars only because the masks, while necessary, do detract from a great dining experience. The wine list offers a good variety of offerings with many bottles currently discounted

I've lived in Atlanta for so long, I consider it to be my adopted hometown. There is always the argument of which steakhouse is the best? Chops Lobster Bar is a fun energetic spot, Hal's never disappoints and is one of my favorite places to party. Some prefer the hip Rathbun's...but nothing-not any restaurant or steak house in Atlanta comes close to Bones. It stands alone on a level of total perfectionism. My partner and I are regulars at Bones; we often sit at the bar and split a steak but when friends come to town we sit in the dining room. The service is impeccable and the wine list is the most extensive I have ever seen in town. Bones is never a decision you will regret.

Sadly we celebrated our twentieth anniversary with a below average evening. My wife loves Bones. I have the luxury of dining here often, but for her it’s a coveted reservation. Unusually our experience was below average. The service was just ok. The Caesar Salad was terrible and the steaks were average. Our celebration fell short this year and we are sorely disappointed.

Food was kind of cold. Steak wasn’t good. The sides weren’t good either. Our waiter checked on us once. When we needed something we had to ask another waiter. Wasn’t what I expected from an upscale restaurant.

I must preface this with... I have eaten at Bones; however, my son had not. He graduated from college right before the pandemic struck- we had a big celebration planned like so many other families - and had to cancel. We've rescheduled and rescheduled and finally decided to wait on a big celebration. We elected to have a very small celebration - which always means location, location, location. That left one location choice - Bones... There are less expensive places; however, Bones is the whole package - incredible service, food/beverage and atmosphere. They did not disappoint. My son graduated with a culinary degree and obtained his certification in bartending/ mixology; so he has spent the last 3+ years all about food and drinks. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar; the bartender was on-point he made my son a traditional Old Fashioned and a Manhattan - done perfectly...(my son's words); I had a Cosmo, classic choice and sent me (right back to (SITC). Our waiter (Lee) was incredible; his service from appetizer through dessert was seamless. He anticipated our needs sometimes before we realized we had a need. There was congratulations and graduate hat confetti on the table - which I thought was such a lovely touch. The food was just what a culinary grad should aspire to... extraordinary, it was a gastronomic feast. Everything about the night from start to finish, allowed us to celebrate our son's accomplishment, maybe not with a huge group; however, at Bones it was still (uber) large. He said as we left - it was easily one of the best meals and service he has ever had. As a parent you want to celebrate your child's achievements - Bone's ensures it's done right. Thank you to everyone (especially Lee) at Bone's for making his celebration perfect.

Bones has the reputation as one of, if not the best steakhouse in Atlanta. After dining there Monday night the reputation and respect is well deserved. Service was attentive and professional, the food was great (thought I’d say the hash browns are overrated) and the ambiance outstanding.

Service was fantastic and the meal was delicious. We went there for my birthday and they put us in a small private room, had the table decorated, and made it a really special night. I'd definitely go there again for a birthday or just for a regular dinner.
