Tight and energetic, Bones is a chef-inspired noodle bar in the heart of Governor's Park. Our windowed corner spot features an eclectic collection of beers, premium sakes, and wines to compliment a menu that changes frequently to offer food as comforting as house-crafted steamed buns and braised pork udon to the more exotic roasted bone marrow. With counter dining for those who love the action of a completely open kitchen, or more intimate tables nestled along the wall, Bones has the amenities of a fine-dining establishment--excellent service, beautiful food--but priced and toned for a more lively experience.

We had rude service for our date night. The appetizers were fine, but the ramen was horrible. I wouldn’t even call it that. The broth tasted like dirty water.

Went here for the ramen, but everything else looks great too. Ramen was good! Broth is lighter than most other ramen places which makes it less heavy on your stomach. It's a small place, so getting a reservation is worth it, and they are very accommodating. Price is a little higher but overall a great place to catch up with a friend or go on a date. Small groups are better for this place, it's not super big inside.

Always like their good sake selection. Always goes well with the wonderful lobster ramen.

Bones has its own funky charm, but while there's very little ambience, the fusion menu is outrageously good. I always get the steamed buns with braised pork appetizer; this time we added duck potsticker dumplings too. Always ask for the nightly specials. If they don't jazz you, the lobster ramen or crispy chicken ramen are both brilliant regulars.

Went to Bones for a date night after a friend recommended it and LOVED it! I have never had ramen before, but the waitress helped me decide what to order, and it was delicious. We ordered some appetizers and the staff was so kind when one of them took a long time to come out. They gave us a free app, which was totally unnecessary because we were having such a great time with our drinks in the fun atmosphere! But also very appreciative for that! This is going to be my new regular spot for sure. Make a reservation though, they are packed!

The prices for items that are not available on the Happy Hour menu are much too high for what you get. The margaritas at Happy Hour are very good. I would not go to this restaurant if it was
outside of Happy Hour.

Great Ramen, cocktails, and appetizers- especially the buns. Flexible staff allows you to mix and match ingredients and broths. Great ambiance too! Overall experience was great!

Some of the food was tasty but I found most of it too salty It was not as good as when we came previously. The dessert was fine but a bit too sweet and lacking in complexity.

We had the lobster ramen, the green chile ramen, the steamed buns and the shisito peppers. The waiter forgot to put our order in for the steamed buns so he gave us the shisito peppers for free while we waited. Big portions and really flavorful ramen. It did not disappoint.

The place had a cozy vibe which was perfect for a Sunday evening but I could see it even more lively when completely full. Great service and great food!

Pro Tip: if you get the steamed buns ask to try all three flavors!

Bones was great! Loved everything we ordered. They were out of pork belly though so I'll definitely be back for that soon.

Tasty food options, basically noodle bowls with a sophisticated flair. Nice options on Happy Hour. Main downfall is the exhaust system. Previous reviews indicated that the ventilation system was poor in the restaurant - I didn't consider this as an issue or thought it may have been something temporary, however, it was an issue. The exhaust isn't powerful enough to remove the cooking smells and a slight "fog" in the air from the moisture of cooking - your entire body and clothing will smell like the restaurant - brand new coat will need to be dry-cleaned. If this isn't a concern and you enjoy noodle bowls, it can be worth a try.

The steamed buns were excellent. Delicious Ramen with creative combinations. Great service! It was super noisy. But, considering it was a small space, it didn’t take away from the experience at all. So glad we went.

We love Bones and have been many times over the years! This time, the service and food did not disappoint. However, something is very wrong with the ventilation right now. The small space was incredibly smoky and smelly, and the air was so thick that I had to walk outside briefly between courses just to breathe. We went to a show after dinner and reeked all night long. Needless to say, we felt horrible for the folks around us, and have to send our nice coats to the dry cleaners now. Other than that, we enjoyed the food at Bones as always, but I don’t think we will be coming back anytime soon!

Consistently good all 3 times we've been there. It meets our Trifecta of quality. Good atmosphere, good food, and good service. All were great. All three times it was cold outside, so provides a nice, cozy atmosphere.

The food was amazing! Quite busy for a Tuesday night but the place is very small. I recommend making a reservation for any night of the week, even for only 2 people. Lobster ramen is amazing, must try for any seafood lover.

We have lived in the area for about a year and walk past this place daily. Finally we decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. Service and food were fantastic. if you sit at the bar you get to see the chefs work. It’s like dinner and a show.

We loved the happy hour menu and the food was great! The brussels sprouts and pork buns were amazing! Perfect for cold weather also! Service was fast and friendly. The only issue we had is with the smoke in the air from the kitchen. It stayed in our clothes after we left.

Upon our 6 pm arrival, we found a sign on the door stating the restaurant was closing at 6 pm for a private party. We still went inside, confused, though, since we had a 6 pm reservation. The greeter/host told us we were "okay to be seated--they just couldn't seat too much beyond that time because of the party." The waitress's service was fine during our meal, but at the end, within 5 minutes or so after the waitress brought our check, the aforementioned greeter/host approached our table and asked for payment because they needed to "turn the table soon." I understand there was a party somewhere else in the restaurant, but I felt this was done rather abruptly (not to mention embarrassed me), since we hadn't even reached the end of our two-hour reservation period. It was also odd since the dining room was empty except for maybe two other tables . This was my first dinner experience at the restaurant, and based on experience, I won't be returning or recommending it.
