Service was outstanding and
Service was outstanding and knowledgable. We asked to be moved to a different table and there was no hesitation. Made recommendations that were spot on for wine and food. The gigs and muscles were outstanding. The dark chocolate soufflé was good. Wine paired perfectly with dinner. Would definitely go back.

Always good and reliable when
Always good and reliable when chef/owner ther which is most of the time. Do not always have specials which are usually quite good and enhance a menu which has become a tad familiar. Still, we love the place and return regularly.

We had a couple of apps and wine. Everything was spectacular. The Brie is out of control. The suggested wine was delish. The service was prompt and friendly.

Although it is about 6 long
Although it is about 6 long blocks from the Arsht Center, this is a great place for dinner before the theater. If you tell them you are trying to make a show, the staff will accommodate. We plan to go back when we go to the theater again. But, they used to have a pre theater mini menu that is no longer available, or at least we were not offered it. Salmon was perfection as was octopus salad and pate. Pasta was a skimpy dish but the extra sauce (requested) was delicious. But, how can a restaurant not serve iced tea?

Our second visit to Bin no
Our second visit to Bin no 18 in a week. The salmon tartare was wonderful. Steamed clams were not as good as the mussels from our previous visit. Entres were great. This restaurant is a find for casual, delicious dining. We will return on our next visit to Miami.

Nice place great food
We chose bin 18 because it was close to the Arsht center and had a nice menu. We really enjoyed our food and will be back soon to try the many tempting things on the menu

Eclectic menu, good food!
From the appetizer menu to the wine list everyone is sure to find something to enjoy. This was a first time experience at bin 18, but this restaurant is now on my go to list. We tasted the fig brule, Brie in honey and scallop appetizers, followed by the chef's catch Mahi, and the Chet's skirt steak special. Right sized portions, great flavor, well presented. Selected a bottle of red from Spain on the waiter's recommendation which was enjoyed by all.

What a Surprise!
Excellent neighborhood spot. Tapas were amazing; warm date salad - excellent great sweet and salty combination. For entree we had the scallops (great sauce and well cooked), Chicken very moist and tasty and the Food Network cuban sandwich was amazing-no words to describe you have to try it. Will definitely be back.

Bin 18 is a find
It is a small restaurant. They have regular tables, tables with low loung-style chairs, and high tables with bar stools.
It is in a business area of Miami and maybe very full for lunch, but when my husband & I arrived, there were only 2 parties of four. By the time we left, the place was fuller.
Our waiter was the only one, but he was pleasant and very efficient, so we did not feel like we had to wait too long for attention!
The menu is limited, but creative & very good!

The decor is nice, the staff is good and the food was tasty. If your in the area, this is a good place to have appetizer and drink wine.

This unpretentious restaurant is a perfect example of someone who loves his job. Everything is very "heartfelt" and passionately served, the food is very nice, prices are comfortable and the whole feeling of the place is very nice. I certainly recommend it!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The appetizers where delicious and different. I loved the figs...The cheese and cold cut tablas are very good. The decor of the place makes it very welcoming and pleasant. The service was good considering we were a group of ten . Would recommend to friends.

Excellent-interesting menu, especially the selections of cheese. Great place!

Pre or post theater find
Food was very good and the waitress friendly and attentive. The place has an eclectic vive. we will be back.

Go - even if you've "Bin" before
Really, really good, and we're going back. We (there were 4 of us) got there at 8PM and practically owned the place. By the time we left at 10, it was almost full. The service was great and the wine list was forgiving; $34 for a great Pinot... So nice we had 3 of 'em ...and they were all good. The Tapas/Small plate thing really suited our styles, and thats what we wnded up having. If you go, consider the Scottish Salmon Tartar, Eggplant Bruschetta, Octopus & Olives... they were all good - but the Warm Figs "Brule" was memorable. Our server did us a great favor by creating our own meat & cheese board with his favorites - and it was all good.

This is a must for anyone in the area. I'm a foodie...travel to all cities around the country for business and this restaurant is definitely in my top 3 of favorites. The cheese and meat combos are amazing and please please please try the pear pasta dish.

Terrific restaurant with brilliant
Terrific restaurant with brilliant chef- owner and very reasonably priced. Two problems- 1) the menu is small and static. This could be overcome with 2) regular specials. There are none. The catch of the day, which might be considered a special, more often than not is not on the menu. these are what keeps the restaurant from moving from very good to outstanding in our opinion.. Still, we like the place and will continue to return often.

Bin # 18
Place is small and intimate .Service is lovely. Food is fresh and prepared well, including the pasta.I had the artichoke appetizer which was great, followed by the octopus entree which was tender, flavorful and moist. Others had the pasta bolognese. My guest almost licked the bowl and my 3rd guest had the scallop special,which was delectable.
We shared a creme brulee for desert that hit the spot. So yes, great neighborhood spot. Prices are moderate and fair.,which is nice for a change of pace.Good food & service that will not break the bank!

Super nice staff and great food!
I have to admit I was slightly underwhelmed when we walked in - I was expecting something more 'wine bar' for some odd reason, but was very nicely surprised, especially by the service and the food. Everyone we dealt with was super nice and the food was quite good. We shared a Carpaccio Breasola that went nicely with the Atmosphere Rose. I had the scallop special which was cooked perfectly and D had the Pulpo Plancha which was also perfect. These went very well with the bottle of Viognier. We wrapped up the evening with 2 glasses of port. Super casual, but super food and service. You MUST try Bin No. 18 when in Miami!

Always enjoy meals here and
Always enjoy meals here and go back often. Only complaint is that the menu hasn't really changed since they opened, and they never seem to have a "catch of the day" which is listed on the menu. Would go even more often with some new menu offerings, but the food is terrific.

Good Food, Friendly Staff
We liked it so much the first time we went back. And will again... Tucked inside an office building with an outside eating area along side other not so impressive restaurants Bin #18 will surprise you. The they have a nice selection of meats, fish, pasta and veggies. Not a lot of seafood choices in the off season, but good choices. The wine list is impressive and has a nice range of pricing options. The staff are all super nice and very helpful while maintaining a 'professional distance'. Best part - a month later two strangers from out of town were not only welcomed back, but they even remembered where we sat and what we ordered! Nice touch.. Great spot for pre-theater / arts events, easy walking distance to the arts center.

Fantastic casual dining
We wished we had more room to eat the wonderful things that were put in front of us! The octopus salad was palate pleasing and the charcuterie fantastic! The scallops are clearly Bin 18's signature dish and are highly recommended. We will certainly be back.
