Bin 14 Ratings and Reviews
Went here for my Italian mother’s birthday and she absolutely loved it. She raved about every single meal we had. You can’t go wrong with any of the dishes especially the whole made pasta. Great wine selection and we had an excellent waiter who was super helpful. The only thing missing was a dessert menu but we knew this going in so it wasn’t a huge disappointment.
Would definitely not go for brunch. We went with a group of friends. Service was terrible and incredibly slow. Also not very helpful or friendly. We did the 90-minute unlimited brunch option (only because we didn’t have a choice, I’m pregnant so can’t drink anyway but whatever) but it was impossible to get the waiter’s attention to order a drink, not to mention it took a long time for drinks to arrive after ordering, so there was really no value with the unlimited option. Then when my husband tried to order a 3rd Bloody Mary, the waiter told us the 90min was up!! There was no warning that the 90min was over (most places will come around and do a “last call”) and given that we didn’t get our first drinks until after our first course of food had arrived, felt that we were short changed. They also charged me for my orange juice even though mimosas were included in the unlimited option...people at my table were getting their food at all different times, we had to ask multiple times for certain things, the restaurant ran out of cold IPAs, could go on....
This was definitely a bistro style, busy atmosphere. My only complaint was the noise level as the decor is mostly hard surfaces that do little to muffle the loud after-work crowd. This makes it hard to talk without yelling across the table. The food and beverages were excellent though and a vibrant energy was certainly present. Some sound barriers would be the biggest improvement.
We had been in the same neighborhood as Bin 14 for 18 months, but we had never visited. Not sure why. Food and service were very good. Small plates, so there is a fair amount of indecision and negotiating at the table amongst friends but that's all part of the experience. Our server, Gary, was extraordinary. I had seen his name in previous reviews and, by chance, he was our server this evening. He knows his wines and he knows his dishes. If you go, listen to his recommendations. It was a tad pricey (even for Hoboken) but the quality was there. Of note, Gary brought over five bottles of wine and gave all four of us a taste before we ordered. Unusual, but a very accommodating beverage strategy. And much appreciated. Only issue: wait until the happy hour crowd clears out before you dine. We were there during the transition and the decibel level declined appreciably. Tin ceilings, hard floors, 19th century railroad car design. Suggestion to management: turn down the music. It has a deep bass, and that's the last thing you need here. During happy hour, everyone is trying to yell above it. After happy hour, no one wants to hear it. Please re-think. Overall, a very good experience.
Almost everyone around us has wine, pizza or cheese. We made the mistake of ordering seafood dishes. Food was bad. My fish tasted undercooked and had an old fishy taste to it. If you go, just get wine and cheese. Pricey for how made their food was. Cute atmosphere.
Food was excellent, service was not. Asked waitress what kind of meats and cheeses came on the meat and cheese plate, and her response was that it varies and it depends on what is in the kitchen that night, but she did not know what was available that night and did not want to go check. On a rather slow night (only about half tables occupied), she disappeared for a long time and we could not order more drinks. Finally decided to go to another bar instead of staying there.
It had been a while since we had been to Bin 14 and we had good experiences in the past. Not this time. Our server was very good and helped us choose a good bottle of wine. The food however was dreadful. The pizza sounded good on the menu but was tasteless with a very dry crust. The risotto was undercooked and the seafood chewy. We really should have sent the food back, but instead we will never go back and stop recommending it to people who ask where to go in Hoboken.
We hadn't been to Bin14 for years. I'm happy we decided to come back because the food, service and ambiance was all around perfect. It actually made me sad that we don't regular this place since we live locally...Lesson learned.
I came here on a Friday night at 8p with my wife, and my mom & dad. They were a bit concerned because as we entered 90s hip-hop was pumping through the speakers. I, on the other hand was so excited about this. Once we got the volume to an appropriate pitch for them it was smooth sailing from there.
Kristin, our waitress made some excellent wine suggestions, and helped guide us through the menu so that we did not over order. We started with a few bruschetta's (crab, and sausage) as well as the chickpea salad, meatballs, and a pizza (fig, prosciutto and ricotta). Everything was delicious. For entrees, I had the tuna tacos - so good. My wife and my mom both had the tagliatelli, which they loved, and my dad had the fish of the day. There was not one complaint. About anything.
Thanks, Kristin for setting up such a great evening. See you soon.
The atmosphere has alot of potential however the food did not meet my expectations at all. Fried calamari was 95% bread, 5% calamari. Meat balls were delicious however ruined by the fact that the plate itself was cold and the meatballs were room temperature; seems like they just nuked them in the microwave. To top it all off the bruschetta seemed like week old bread, grilled on one side (tuna tartar was good) and the other side of the bread was as soft as white wonder bread. Wine was the only good thing while the food was a complete buzz kill. Had an out of country business guest and felt embarassed to have chosen to take her there.
The hostess booked out every single table with only a 90 minute turnaround. On our third glass of wine, our waiter informed us we would have to leave in 20 minutes and may have to "chug" our glasses at the end. All semblance of service and professionalism was dropped from there. What was once a favorite place to dine will now be one of the last I think to return to. Grand Vin, I'm sure, will continue to be the better option.
