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
Super friendly and accommodating!
Our reservation was dinner at doors opening and staff was very welcoming. Cocktails; Bones G&T and Tokyo Sour were terrific. The steamed bun with pork belly appetizer is a favorite. Our choice entrée was the Pork green Chile Ramen and Waygu Beef Ramen and they are delicious. The over the top desert of a churro ice cream sandwich was a tasty finish.
Bones's small size and open kitchen create a vibrant, fun atmosphere. We came for Restaurant Week, which was a great value. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the pork belly steamed buns, the tuna poke bowl, and the pannacotta. The wine we ordered was very reasonably priced and delicious. The service was also very good - we were early for our reservation, but our table was ready, and we were never waiting for the servers.
It was fantastic!
Bones has a very nice atmosphere and very friendly staff! It was a great place for a casual date. Their pork udon and sparkling sake were delicious!!
We ate at Bones during Restaurant Week. The food was superb, and the service was spot on> We will definitely come back to try other things on their menu.
Restaurant week! Loved the lobster ramen, pork udon was a little intense for me. Glad we tried Bones!
We had some pretty good food here, great service, cute little place in a fun location. The appetizer buns were awesome and our server recommended great stuff. Would absolutely return.
Food excellent, wait staff excellent. The only negative was the very first comment by the host who, when I asked for a table away from the door, remarked “well, we do have a lot of reservations tonight.”
I was one of those reservations so it just came across as snarky.
We went to restaurant week and did the set menu. It was Ok. One of the group ordered the buns and they were delivered15 minutes after our appetizers were delivered. Dessert was weird.
Yummy food and good service to celebrate Lisa’s birthday.
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.
Food and service was excellent. The music was a little too loud. We had to yell across of the table.
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!
A bit pricy, but decent! I will come back for more.
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!
Does not disappoint. Still my favorite place in Denver!
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!
It was nice and cozy. Food was spectacular.
Wasn't my favorite. Too much money and did not care for the taste of the food.
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.
Lovely experience. The food, service and drinks were phenomenal. Highly recommend
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.
Delicious delicious food and friendly accommodating service.
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!
The buns and ramen were perfect for a cold winter evening. The happy hour menue was a pleasant surprise.
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.
Amazing! Lobster Ramen was exactly what I hoped for. Cant wait to go back!
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.
I just love being in Denver and Ramen and bones is both. It has friendly service and really good food. I love getting the lobster ramen very delicious. I also like to try there other ramen bowls and they are just as good.
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.
