    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    we arrived at 6: 50 for our 7 P.M. reservation. We were there to celebrate our 54th wedding anniversary. However we got off to a shaky start. We ordered drinks, and they did not arrive for 30 minutes. The server said the bartender had not shown up so the manager was tending the bar. He did come over to apologize after my husband asked to see him. The food was delicious--our server and her assistants tried to help, but the start was not what we expected.

    The service was excellent, the setting quiet, very different than the typical lunch rush. We had the vegetable fritters and the pupusa for appetizers, they were quite tasty, the pupusa in particular was a hit. My dining companion had a chopped salad, which she liked and I had the bacon cheeseburger with an egg on it. Unfortunately the bun was a mess, it deteriorated quickly and I was forced to eat it with a knife and fork. The homemade potato chips were wonderful.

    The food is outstanding and the employees are all very nice and professional, pricing is very reasonable based on quality. This is a place that works great for a casual lunch or dinner with family, friends or co-workers, yet can also provide for a fine dining experience if necessary.

    We stopped by here on Saturday for happy hour and had the best meal! We sat at the bar and the service was outstanding. The curried popcorn they give you is out of this world. My margarita was made with fresh ingredients and was delish. We ordered off the happy hour which is a steal of a deal, but will definitely be back to order off the regular menu. All around great experience!

    The five spice duck breast is amazing. The best things on the menu may be the hot and cold plates that feature local seasonal vegetables. We loved the creme brulee with dippin dots-yeah their version of the space ice cream with rum raisin.

    My wife and I had dinner together here and it was wonderful. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgable, the dinning room was well lit and not too loud, and above all the food was rich and delicious. The lobster pasta was amazing...we can't wait to order it again.

    Made reservations with open table although there were only about 5 people in the entire restaurant. Ordered the pupusa, flat iron steak and the burger for my fiancé...the food although a bit different in terms of ingredients it was still lacking in flavor for me. My fiancé told the waitress it was my birthday and she didn't even say anything just gave us a weird smile and hen brought us the check. We spent over 100 dollars for dinner and drinks and they couldn't even give me a scoop of ice cream! Or acknowledge our special occasion Unbelievable...wouldn't try this place again. Overpriced, food was lacking and service was horrible.

    This was our fourth or fifth time here and we've had a great experience every time. Whenever we have out-of-town guests, this is the first place we take them. Bink's is one of the few higher-end places where you can have an interesting dining experience AND a pleasant conversation with your dining companions. It's also one of a very few places where vegetarians can find interesting, creative options. I think some people don't get what Kevin's trying to do here and that's too bad because it's unique and outstanding. Having said that, because of the diverse and intriguing menu it's easy to over-spend, so keep that in mind.

    My wife and I had a fantastic dinner there - the flat iron steak was cooked to perfection and the duck breast was exceptional. My personal favorite was the prosciutto and dates side, a brilliant dish. Great atmosphere, good happy hour wine prices, and good service without being overbearing. So glad we found and tried Bink's.

    What a quaint little place with amazing food. I arrived a bit early & was starved so I tried the basket of fries. Worth the cals! Once my friend arrived we were given complimentary biscuits & butter. They were both flavored and delicious. I don't recall what flavor but the biscuits were light and the butter mildly sweet. The biscuits were sort of a grey color, which was a bit odd but since the fries and three dipping sauces were quite tasty I dove right into the biscuits! My chicken salad sandwich was everything described in the menu. Chock full of big chicken chunks, cranberries, in just the right amount of mayonnaise. The only problem I have is I live in the East valley & it's in central Phoenix! There needs to be Bink's II

    I have been a fan of Chef Binkley for quite a while now, but never actually eaten at one of his restaurants...until now. All I can say is Just Go! Quit thinking about it and go try it, otherwise you will wind up waiting years like I did before you have the chance to eat some amazing food. Just Go!

    We went to Bink's to celebrate our birthdays and had a great time, one of us chose from the Restaurant Week menu, the other from the regular menu. The Restaurant Week menu was amazing - the kale salad was superb, the pork confit was amazing. From the regular menu, the scallops were the best ever had! The waitstaff at Bink's is just fantastic. Between the busy boys, food runners, and our waitress, there's never an empty ice tea or water glass! We particularly find Kendall to be a great addition to the wait staff!

    All courses were salted to the point of being inedible. Potatoes were also hard. First 2 courses were rushed. The amuse bouche was heavy. Then desert took 30m. When the valle asked how my meal was I said over salted. He said he heard that a lot. Love Binkley's and Cafe Bink. This was sub par.

    The food was outstanding (try the 5 spice duck) and the wait staff was attentive. We had an early, pre-theater dinner so the noise level would probably be higher if the dining room was full. The menu was full of dishes I would like to try. Kevin Binkley is definitely one of the very best chefs in Phoenix. We'll be back.

  • What happened, Bink???
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/16/2014
    Have eaten at this restaurant 3 times previously and was great. This last experience was enough to make me never want to go back. Arrived to a "dead" restaurant. Table was nice. Server was good, but all 3 food choices were ill prepared. Almost sent back all 3. Mussels were over-cooked and super fishy. Sent them back. Cauliflower was clearly re-heated and globbed w cheese. Scallops tasted strongly of propane from the grill. I imagine our food was poorly pre-pared because of the lack of diners. But was enough to wonder if lack of diners could be attributed to a run of poorly executed food? What happened?!? Hope Binks can get back on track. I'm now nervous to go back. :/

    Great little spot, wonderful service and the food is fresh, creative and delish! Went on a Friday night and the place was practically empty. Not sure if it's because of the slightly odd location or because there are just so many great restaurants in Phoenix, but Bink's Midtown is worth checking out.

    Booked Binks for Mothers Day based on it being written up as a top 10 brunch in PHX. Menu looked great so I made a reservation for my family including my wife and mother. Turns out they were doing a buffet only. I did not want a buffet and was not advised of this when making the reservation. Binks is not set up for a buffet so had food spread across the bar. To high for even my Mom to really see and reach everything and exceptionally crowded. All the food was cold and the smoked salmon was raw to the point of sushi. Eggs did come out of the kitchen, the only hot item of the day. Worst of all, when the check arrived we saw for the first time this mediocre, at best, brunch was $45 per person. Bait and switch and 100% not worth it.
