Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I went here for our third wedding anniversary. It was absolutely incredible. We both ordered filet mignon, and let's just say the steaks were cooked perfectly! The foie gras was the best I've ever had. And they're version of Mac 'n Cheese is to die for. The manager assisted us with a wine selection, and we were happy he did. Everyone greeted us, and each time with new information that we'd shared with the previous person. It was simply a well executed and incredible dining experience. We will definitely return. Great food! Excellent service! Worth every penny."

  • "Exactly what I expect from a fine dining steakhouse. The aged Delmonico was one of the best steaks I have had in my life! It took a couple of minutes for our server to greet us, but once she arrived, we were taken care of very attentively. We'll definitely visit again!"

  • "Bin 54 is one of our favorite restaurants and certainly our most favorite in the area. We drive 30 minutes to get there and go often. The staff is always amazing, friendly, helpful and fun. The food is consistently good and we have never had a bad meal. Sometimes, we go to the bar and have martinis and a burger which is just as fabulous as sitting in the dining room and having a filet or one of the creative specials. Highly recommend."

  • "We were banished ot the wine cellar when another party who originally insisted to eat outside, decided the 90+ degree weather would wilt more than the salads...it was a great, quiet meeting of 6 business associates. Not even the NSA could snoop on us with all the wine hanging around us. Beef was awesome, with shallot sauce to accompany it, and then the beet salad was great, too. Apps were fine, especially the lobster gnocchi. Altogether a great evening!"

  • "Come for the steaks, the drinks and the service...have some sides and appetizers at home. Steaks were amazing, but the accompanying sides and appetizer we had were lacking...overcooked lobster, flavorless sauce and someone forgot the salt."

  • "This is a great alternative to all the other chain steak houses around town. Their meat is always expertly cooked to temperature and seasoned perfectly. I much prefer going to Bin 54 than anytime I'm in the mood for a good steak."

  • "Lovely dinner here at Bin 54. The food is high quality, prepared simply and perfectly, and the ambience is great. If you want a steak in Chapel Hill, this is definitely the place to go. I did not find the menu (food or cocktails) to be particularly creative or inventive, but that's not what they're going for here. I found the wine list long and comprehensive, and skewing towards a higher "special occasion" price point for me. We probably won't return very frequently because of the price and because steak isn't typically what we crave, but would happily recommend this to anyone who's looking for one!"

  • "We went for restaurant week but had been here before and knew it would be good. Caesar salad and lobster gnocchi were wonderful. Steaks cooked to perfection and delicious. Service was excellent. White glove treatment. Ask for Alexis she took great care of us and was fun too. Will definitely go back."

  • "Every time we go to Bin 54, we leave feeling that it's one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is always perfectly prepared and their sauces are amazing. The wine list is so impressive that I have an awful time choosing just one. We consistently get incredible service from the staff and will be going back again."

  • "The food was the best I've had so far in Chapel Hill, everything tasted great and was prepared near perfectly. It was great to eat somewhere that realizes a properly prepared quality steak doesn't need anything more than a little salt and pepper. The service was good, but not great. However, we were there for Restaurant Week so I really can't blame them for being a bit harried and distracted. Our only real complaint was that it was surprisingly loud, with enough ambient noise from other tables and the open kitchen that it was difficult to hold a conversation. "

  • "Steak was cooked perfectly and blue cheese sauce was rich and to die for! I would recommend the lobster gnocchi and crime brûlée for dessert. We went during triangle restaurant week, so got a great deal. Jerad pricing was a bit high normally, but you defiantly pay for great service and fantastic food. We will be back for special occasions. "

  • "While living in Chapel Hill, we never ate at Bin 54 because we didn't believe the food could be worth the price. We were wrong! The food, service, and drink were outstanding. The only down for us was that the tables were too close and the noise level too high. I really wasn't interested in hearing any part of the conversation behind us between an older man and his "trophy" date."

  • "We went to Bin 54 during Restaurant Week and the food was very good. The Restaurant Week menu helped with the cost of the meal. We chose to sit outside because inside seemed a bit noisy. We enjoyed the wait staff and our meals. Excellent wine menu."

  • "This was my first time at Bin 54, and even though I'd heard great things about it, it exceeded my expectations. Almost everything was perfect -- every course, the service, the atmosphere. The only thing that I would change is the noise level. It was a little too loud (we were seated near a large group), but even so, it didn't detract from an outstanding meal."

  • "If you like high end steaks simply put…this is the spot in Chapel Hill for sure, possibly the best in NC. Fabu cocktail menu, great salads, perfectly cooked veggies, lovingly and generously prepared desserts. A must for your next special evening out. Prices reflect the quality, we thought it was a good value."

  • "Bin 54 is on a par with the "name" steakhouses, with service that is superior, in all respects. Wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly at the same time. Kitchen is efficient (we were timely served with food at the proper temperature). We know it's the custom at high-end steakhouses to serve side dishes in table-size portions, which is probably good if only 2 are dining (and looking at the table set-up, most diners expected are 2), but when 4 are present, and all are not on the same side dish page, it results in too many leftovers (and higher cost). Wine list superb. "

  • "This is my favorite restaurant and my family was celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday. Jared and Beth Ann took fabulous care of us all night long. The tuna tartare appetizer is phenomenal and our steaks were all cooked to perfection. The Blue Cheese butter made my 6oz filet melt in my mouth! Fantastic restaurant when you're celebrating a special occasion AND when you just want to celebrate the day."

  • "We had heard great things about Bin 54 and selected this restaurant for dinner with friends visiting from out of state. The restaurant was busy, and quite noisy. Our waiter was not the best. We waited a very long time for our entrees, and the waiter was more involved in servicing a large party at a neighboring table. After waiting approximately one hour for our entrees, we managed to flag down another waiter who sent the manager over to see us. The manager explained that the kitchen had overlooked the ticket for our entrees and our food would arrive in approximately 7 minutes. The food was still late in arriving but the manager came over to again apologize for the delay and told us that our entrees were on him. very nice gesture. "

  • "My husband and I were celebrating our 7yr anniversary at BIN54 which was a last minute decision. We booked our reservation online w/o a problem and had an absolutely wonderful time and the food was EXCELLENT. Did I mention the delicious banana pudding :-)They're very pricey but worth a try."

  • "I had dinner at Bin 54 on Saturday April 26, 2014. Our party was a group of six with a reservation for 6:30. The reservation process through OpenTable was easy and our table was ready for us when we arrived. As a group we all ordered drinks, appetizers, main courses and dessert. All of it was excellent. The items that stand out were: lobster gnocci, banana pudding, cheese and bacon grits and the Lil Pim cocktail. I also had the 6 oz filet which was cooked precisely to order and was outstanding. They have an extensive wine list and several cocktail choices. They have ample parking."

  • "Bin 54 revealed itself! It's the restaurant I knew and hoped it would be. They gave us a chance to revisit after vocalizing our concerns expressed in a previous review and we are Customers for life. We brought friends and know they will be returning. The server was at our table in a matter of seconds introducing himself and the other server that would be assisting. From that point the bread plate was never empty, water glasses were never low and we were regularly asked how we were doing. The food was outstanding. Our table shared the calamari and it was delicious. Our table had petit filets, hanger steak and the lamb special. All were perfectly cooked to order. I had my rare plus :). Our sides were absolutely delicious."

  • "My boyfriend loves his red meat so I'm always on the lookout for great special occasion places that do steak right. This one certainly fit the bill. Service started out a bit poorly but then I realized that the waitress was nervous. Once she relaxed we had a great dinner. Dinner was paced nicely. Drinks and apps were quick to arrive. Both of our steaks were cooked perfectly. Creme brûlée for dessert was great! The atmosphere was warm and cozy with the reds and browns. Great birthday dinner. We'll be back!"

  • "First class all the way! Beautiful contemporary chic ambiance, spectacular service, the food and extensive wine menus were incredible. We went to celebrate a birthday and were prepared to "splurge". All and all the food, wine and service was well worth every penny spent and we were actually surprised when we got the bill. Not as bad as anticipated. They were very kind to give us a romantic corner table and treated the birthday man to lovely chocolate truffles for dessert. We had a late night dinner reservation and never felt for a minute as if they were rushing us out. We are SO looking forward to dining there again soon. Simply wonderful!"
