My steak was over cooked and they got me another one, but I was disappointed they did not offer some type of compensation for this. I was with my wife and she had to eat alone while I waited for my steak. Every steakhouse we have been to have offered something if the food was not prepared properly, so I was disappointed with Bones for not.

Overall awesome experience, food, and people. Only complaint is that we had food sent back to be boxed up before we left and our waiter never returned with it so we ended up leaving it behind.

Usually Bones is excellent. We have been there 3-4 times. It’s great for birthdays & anniversaries as they decorate the table & give cake. But I was a little disappointed with this visit. It was a Sunday night and our food took a long time. Otherwise service was great as usual. The food was okay. My steak was over cooked and didn’t have as much flavor as usual. The corn pudding was bland but the mac and cheese was great. It is hit or miss, would be nice if it was consistent every time.

I have dined there at least 7 times and this is the first time I've ever had to send my entree back (several times mind you) because it was not properly cooked. That was very disappointing.

Per normal, the food was excellent. Unfortunately, the service left something to be desired. We have never experienced this here, so it was a bit of a disappointment. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday which happens to fall in the middle of Valentine’s season. Maybe that can explain the atypical service. However, this birthday visit is a yearly occurrence, and this has been the only time we’ve noticed a variation in service level from a normal dinner service at Bones. This being said, the exceptional quality of the food definitely outweighed the level of service...we will definitely be back! :)

Bones is an all time favorite, the food is prepared perfectly, everything is delicious. The service is always great. Everyone should eat at Bones at least once in their life.

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.

Service and food was great. The only problem was when the wait staff forgot to package my leftovers properly and left out a item. I called back and the managers said I could come back or they would make it right on my next visit. Overall a great place for special night out

Perfect place for a special occasion or date with it's cozy atmosphere and delicious food. We had the rib-eye for two, along with the macaroni and cheese and asparagus and they were all cooked perfectly--absolutely no complaints. The bread was warm and crusty and we enjoyed the french onion soup and the corn chowder but not as much as the other dishes. We topped it all off by sharing the chocolate cake, which I believe was a flour-less chocolate torte. It was melt in your mouth divine.

The service was generally very good throughout the ordering and meal process but got slow towards the end. We were there at the end of the lunch shift, it was Valentine's Day and I think there were some breaks taking place that slowed things down a bit. Was not enough of an issue to complain. The servers were very helpful in answering questions and suggesting some local nightlife as well.

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. :(

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.
