What Insiders Are Saying
Bones in Capitol Hill has a small but reliable Asian fusion menu, and patio and the open kitchen make it a surprisingly great place for a date
Love the buns!
Stirfry sauce a little too much.
Bones was great! It’s super small, so if you’re going on a weekend I would absolutely recommend a reservation. It was the perfect night for soup—I got the lobster ramen and my boyfriend got the pork udon; both were amazing and we had leftovers! With buns, another app, ramen and two drinks, our bill was much lower than we expected. We will be back!
We had a wonderful dinner with friends and the staff took super care of us! Thanks for a memorable night.
I love this place!! I’m a regular!!! So good so great!!
Terrible ramen. Do not order ramen there. Stick to the pork belly buns and sake. That’s all they can do well.
I love the cozy atmosphere and energy of the small restaurant for Bones, it's a great space for the delicious menu! I do prefer fresh hand made noodles for Ramen due to the texture and quality, we were happy they do provide rice-noodle substitutions for Gluten-free. The Crispy Brussels Sprouts were great as well as the Spicy Red Miso Crispy Chicken Ramen & Lobster Ramen. Looking forward to trying the Green Papaya Salad!
Super star service and had fun sitting at the bar watching our masterful chefs prepare dinner. We ate too much even though we shared an entree (we tried the 2 for $40 dinner). Can’t wait to go again.
Amazing noodles and pork buns!! Would be back for sure.
had the crispy chicken ramen bowl, SO had the lobster ramen. both were incredible with really dynamic flavor profiles! My favorite was the appetizer we had- Escargot Potstickers. Such a fun twist on a common starter! Will be returning for sure.
Always lovely, very tastey, huge portions. Great treat!
A single review for this place is hard. I'd give a full 5 stars, without a doubt, to their Bao Buns. They are absolutely the best in the Denver, no doubt. But their ramen is not that good. We keep trying over the years but it's never been that good and once again when we recently visited it was not great. There is such better ramen in Denver. But come for the Bao Buns! Seriously, worth a visit just for these. We will be back for the buns for sure.
Service was great - it was my birthday so our waitress brought over champagne sake! She also ended our night with a birthday dessert. Great space.
Small restaurant but all the food was amazing! We tried three types of ramen and they were all outstanding. Great place for a small group for dinner.
Bones is always a reliable place to find a satisfying lunch that is not "the usual".
I ordered the wagyu beef ramen and added an egg, while my friend chose the pork belly udon. When the food came out my egg was missing but the waitress was actually the one to notice and promptly corrected that. The beef ramen was quite tasty but the broth was REALLY beefy (almost too much), they were very generous on the actual wagyu amount which was tender and delicious though. The real star was the pork belly though, everything about it was perfect. Overall we had a really good experience, the service is very friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back when I need a ramen fix.
It's a great space, very small and connecting. The food was good overall, however there were some mistakes made with the ordering that were handled poorly.
We came for restaurant week. Very good food. Good service. I would come back for a nicer dinner.
Went to Bones for restaurant week. I had dined here previously a few years prior and loved it. I ordered the blushing geisha cocktail which was very tasty to start and ordered the crab bun, the pork udon, and the sticky rice with mango. The appetizer was ok nothing extraordinary, the entree was giant and very delicious, and the dessert was a total let down. It wasn’t sweet at all and the mango was hard and not ripe at all. I would recommend either taking it off the menu or working on the recipe. Service was prompt during all of our dishes but took a long time to get us the bill and a long time to pick it back up. The dining space is very small and the day that we were there it was freezing outside and they had fans running inside. After this experience I don’t think I’ll be going back unless I’m just getting an entree. The ramen is amazing though so there is that.
Bones was great. I am surprised this was my first time here living in cap hill for over 2 years. I had the lobster ramen. It was very very good. The portions were a bit on the small side for how much you pay but it was delicious. Bao buns were to die for. Probably the best I had had. The service was great. The restaurant is very small so I suggest making reservations. Parking can be tricky- only street parking. Overall, I would go again.
Good price for Denver’s restaurant week menu
We had the Cucumber Salad, Steamed Pork Belly Bun, Green Curry with Tofu and Pork Udon. Everything was yummy. The Udon was mild. The curry was medium spiced. With free Valet parking, it couldn't be easier to enjoy a great meal. We'll be back!
Ramen was amazing. Service was great. Amazing experience
This restaurant was delicious and was perfect for a date night.
We had never been here before and wanted to try something new for our anniversary dinner. Both of us agreed that we could not have picked a better spot for us. We tried all different kinds of new foods with new flavors. My wife is not a fan of anything spicy. However, that night she ate anything they made. The Spicy Crispy Chicken Ramen is amazing, but it is spicy. These folks know how to cook spicy well. It is enjoyable and doesn't just make you sweat all over your meal.
We thought this place was so good, our son wants to go on his 9th birthday to see what all the fuss is about!
Bones is one of our favorite spots. One of the best ramen dishes in town!
Love this place. Everything on the menu is AWESOME! Our friends enjoyed it too--it was their 1st time.
Had buns, ramen and the crispy brussel sprouts and cauliflower. The buns were pretty good. So was the ramen -- not amazing but good. The brussel sprouts and cauliflower were awesome. I love the open kitchen and how small it is.
Great service and excellent food. We both enjoyed the experience. Seemed to be a very authentic Ramen experience. Small space and intimate atmosphere due to close quarters.
Sobs and pork buns. Fantastic as always. My fav buns in the city.
A long standing Ramen(plus) in the South Cap Hill area. Lovely little spot in the “Bonanno Block.” Can’t go wrong with the Buns followed by Lobster or Green Chili Pork Ramens.
Fantastic food, great service! Fun place, Sake tasting menu, Interesting food menu, lots of flavor and spice! Not the place for vegetarians, but good options if you like seafood.
Don't get me wrong the food was great. The service was fantastic. We called that morning changing our reservations from 4 to 6 and they were very accommodating on a Saturday night. Just not sure if the food was worth what we paid and the space was just so small. Hard to celebrate in a space like that.
Super yummy food in a cozy corner spot. We really enjoyed the steamed buns and the ramen. Loved the vibe and would definitely go back.
It was very good- chicken ramen was great. Lobster was too simple. It smells like the fryer in the restaurant and out clothes did not smell good after we left.
Lobster ramen is amazing! It isn’t traditional ramen more like a fusion but is still really really good!!!!!
Great local spot with delicious, filling noodles and amazing buns. Prompt service, quiet location makes for easy going lunch/dinner spot.
I absolutely love this place! I dine here every time I come back to Denver from New York City. Lobster Ramen is to die for. So happy to bring my boyfriend here for the first time this visit. I hate that I will have to wait a year until I am back. Fantastic, innovative menu and great cocktails too!
The service was good, the sake flight was bomb. I really appreciate the attempts at making unique ramen, but I think it fell flat for both the dishes my husband and I had. Perhaps if we tried something else it would have been fine.
The steamed buns were a bit greasy, the wagyu beef ramen was alright but the broth was oddly tart/sour - must have been the fennel - but the beef itself was amazing. The pork green chile ramen was spiced well but the flavor profile didn't work for my husband.
Ultimately I suppose it was our fault for not realizing this was nouveau cuisine.
