First, we came without reservations and they had tables accounted for. Had to sit outside although it was cold. They thankfully accommodated and turned on heaters for us. So lesson for others: make reservations if it's cold outside. Second, we got several delicious appetizers. Bone...More

We stopped in for lunch. It was really disappointing. Not recommended! Flavor should be there. Not salt. Not oil. Flavor from fresh vegetables with diversity too. Our lunch - two different items - were blah.

First of all, a big THANK YOU to the gentleman who seated us at a four top when there were tables for 2 available....great food---steamed buns and chicken ramen bowls. Great and attentive service is always a plus! Lots of salt in the ramen broth...More

All 3 of us were disappointed. Not the explosion of flavor she we anticipated. 2 are vegetarian-one option. Not tasty. Though it did look good. Our other family member had a chicken ramen bowl. She didn't enjoy it. 😐

I've been here twice now and will be back! The buns are super delicious. We also loved the brussels sprouts. I got the crispy chicken ramen. The chicken wasn't crispy fried like I expected, but the broth was divine.

Bones' reputation and numerous great reviews prompted me to visit for lunch recently. It's a tiny noodle house with good food and excellent service, gentrified to justify the high prices. The duck confit steamed buns are excellent, and worth the 15 minute wait.These are served...More

I expected something a bit casual and it met that expectation. Went with a friend who raved about the place. We had steamed buns (good with a minimal amount of filling) and lobster ramen—a feature of the place. I was less than wowed. It was...More

Listed on Westword as "asian-italian fusion". Feels more like asian-american fusion. Food was excellent and cooked perfectly. Loved the addition of the poached egg. Overall a little expensive, about $100 for three people, including appetizers, drinks, meals and desert to share, and a tip. Noisy...More

The menu concept is great with its noodle-featured dishes and not the ordinary Asian Americanized food, but the food was a bit too oily and not well proportioned between steamed bun and filling or peppers and topping.

Nice little space in Gov Park. The service was friendly and attentive. We got the Lobster Ramen and the Curry, both had lots of flavor. We will definitely come back. Advice: Get a reservation.

Description
Opened in December 2008, Bones is Frank Bonanno’s interpretation of Asian fare with a signature French twist. Unique choices range from escargot pot-stickers to steamed suckling pig buns, but the focus here is on the noodles. Lobster ramen shines, loaded with poached lobster and savory miso broth. Soft-serve ice cream adds the sweet at the end of the meal, in whimsical flavors like Lucky Charms or Chocolate Chai.
