Had my son and his wife in from Hawaii and celebrated my birthday. The food was excellent, the service was top notch and the ambiance was perfect.

I would typically rate Bones with 5s across the board, but the service was painfully slow. A business lunch should not take 1.5 hours when everyone except the waiter is ready for a quicker meal.

We have been eating at Bones since you opened in 1979. We announced our engagement to my parents 32 years ago and just this weekend celebrated our son's 29th birthday. Monroe helped us and was such a joy. He was delightful, quick and even gave my husband a present! We have moved to Florida but take every chance we can to get to Bones! Thank you

We always dine at Bone’s when we come to Atlanta. The only thing I was disappointed with was the Braised Beef Short Ribs. They were slices of thin meat. I’ve never seen it prepared this way. Loved our table in the wine room. Our waiter Ken made our evening special. We will be back again. I’ll just stick with a filet.

We used to love bones until this past visit. For we’re sat by the kitchen and heard he staff talking about the tables the entire time. We were constantly overlooked and spent two hours there... not because we wanted to but just long gaps between service. We also noticed that we didn’t even have a main server... he passed us off to a good runner.

Bones is currently rated as the number 1 restaurant in Atlanta and it didn't disappoint. The service was flawless. The meals were outstanding, but very pricey. The bone in ribeye was delicious. Tip for couples; get there early. We had our seating at 9:30, and with it being a steak house, there are primarily men dining there. After lots of cocktails, the scene can get a little vulgar. Luckily, they cleared out of there quickly so we were able to enjoy our date.

As always, service and atmosphere was over the top. The bone in ribeye steak was exceptional. Only minor flaw was the filet. It was a little dry and bland for my taste but that's just me. Probably should have had it medium rare. Will go back anytime I can. Hope to see you there!

Free cookies. Free cake. Free party table favors. Free appetizer. It pays to be frequent diners, I guess! We go here every year for our anniversary, and they never forget us. The service was spectacular, as always. The food was melt-in-your-mouth, as always. Never had a bad dinner here, and with the way they run things, I don't see that happening anytime soon.

We celebrated our one year anniversary at Bones a few evenings ago. We had accidentally made a mistake with our reservation date, and they treated us so kindly to do what they could. They fit us in, and the service was over the top. We have been to Bones many times and each time the experience gets better and better. We will be back for many years to come.

Bones has been on my bucket list of Atlanta fine restaurants for dinner (I have only had lunch there, once in 2000). It has long been a high end staple of steak restaurants in the Southeast, and has a widespread reputation of serving very good steaks. My family (with two strapping millennial boys) thoroughly enjoyed the food -- it was well prepared, very high quality, and very tasty. Fine accompaniments to the main course. The main reason I don't give a higher "value" score is that the prices are very high, among the highest I have ever paid for a restaurant outside NYC or Tokyo or London. OK, so it is a world-class American steak restaurant ... I just wish it were a tad less expensive so I could go more often! And it tends to be a bit loud. The place was packed with patrons (always a sign of a successful restaurant); many of them were "happily loud", perhaps fueled with cocktails, wine, and a great steak. Not bad things, just be prepared to experience a great meal, a bit of neighbor noise, and an expensive bill. PS, see photo of 28 oz dry aged Porterhouse "for two", medium rare. I didn't eat the whole thing myself ... natch.

I tell everyone as I travel the country that Bones is the best steak restaurant period. The “cheese wafers” in the bar, the martinis, the steak, the service, all superb. Not to mention the Bones salad and dessert. It is very expensive and well worth every penny.

If you're even remotely proficient in the kitchen, you could do much better for yourself than a meal at Bones - and for far less. That being said, the food wasn't terrible. Just average, and below expectations. My dry-aged ribeye was decent, but my husband remarked that his filet was "not as good as Longhorn," which disappointed us both for obvious reasons. Great service, though, and we also appreciated the complimentary champagne & anniversary-themed table scatter. But for the money we spent, I can't help but feel that we could've had a much better meal elsewhere in the city.

The service was outstanding, and the cuisine (especially the steak, which was perfectly prepared) was amazing. I lost count of how many times our waiter- or another member of the staff- came to the table, even if it was to simply refresh our water glasses or to just ask if we needed anything at all. Bones even decorated the table for us, since we were celebrating our anniversary.

The best lobster bisque I have ever tasted, and the 24 oz. Porterhouse steak I ordered was mouth-watering. My girlfriend and I loved every dish we ordered, down to the Mountain High Pie we had for dessert (definitely recommended, and lived up to its name). Upon leaving, my girlfriend and I both said Bones provided the best dining experience of our lives.

I cannot recommended Bones more highly. You won't regret making a reservation.

The food was great as always. The service we had was horrible. Drinks were empty at the table pretty much all the time. They forgot my cocktail twice and brought it out when we were getting ready to leave. I’ve eaten at pretty much all the Atlanta steak houses. This one needs work on customer service. Disappointing
