    We went here two years and loved it. We were attending a show in Boston and couldn’t wait to make reservations. The biggest complaint was seating. We were seated in the least ideal location; between the bathrooms and maintenance closet. Between hearing the constant flushing of the toilets, whiffs of dial soap and watching the bucket and mop go by us a couple of times; we couldn’t say it was a romantic atmosphere. The food and wine was average for the price point. Sadly, I will not go back again.

    The wait staff seemed to be in a hurry to get us out the door so they could turn the table. We also noticed that $22 for a 250 ml glass of very ordinary white wine seemed quite pricey. Please note that we have just returned from Spain where that sort of behavior never occurs and 22 Euros (about $22.50) will buy a whole bottle of a nice French white wine. Unfortunately, the US restaurants have raised their prices and lowered the quality of their service... because they can get away with it, whereas at least the Spanish restaurants have not.

    The food was the only saving grace in our Bin 26 experience. The dining room is incredibly loud as customers are forced to yell over music that belongs in the club. Service is slow and unprofessional. The wine we ordered was forgotten about until the main course arrived. When the bottle of white did arrive it was brought at room temperature and without a cooling bath. When we asked for something to keep (or rather make) it cold they brought a container with a solid block of ice. The waiter then attempted to smash the wine up using the full and opened wine bottle itself at the table. The finishing touch was when a different waiter attempted to take the unfinished bottle off the table and was several steps away before he apparently heard us calling to him to bring it back.

    Cute, intimate place for a date, good ambiance overall. The food is small plates though they do have larger plates as well. That part was a bit confusing because for a small plate restaurant it’s not unusual to order a couple things and hang on to the menu to order a couple more. Our waiter seemed very impatient and asked for the menu back multiple times despite us saying we wanted to hold on to it to order more after the initial order. Once we ordered the second time he told us we were “too much” in a joking fashion but again confusing because it’s a small plate restaurant. The food was overall pretty good with minimal complaints (one dish could have been warmer, another dish could’ve used more bread for dipping). We were surprised for a wine bar that they didn’t have many suggestions or feedback on the wine list and were out of one we wanted to order. We would likely not recommend but it wasn’t the worst experience either.

    Service was friendly / food was okay. It took over 15 minutes to order a drink after being seated. Was not in a rush but very thirsty. Cannellini puree with grilled bread was delicious but only 3 slices with enough spread left to coat 3 more. Clearly a high margin appetizer leaving the diner with a bad taste. Lamb shank was pedestrian. It fell off the bone put was under whelmed with the flavors. It was my first experience and don’t think I will be back anytime soon.

    We showed up between lunch and dinner, we were told we could order from lunch menu and from dinner menu. We ordered a few appetizers from the lunch menu and more appetizers and main courses from dinner menu. The plates from the lunch menu arrived but we had to wait close to an hour for the rest of the order. Waiter was apologetic but nobody made an effort to make the wrongs right. We understand that restaurants are struggling with staffing after the pandemic but this was a bit too much. Food was decent but the experience as a whole was a bit disappointing.

    Another excellent dinner! During the week and on Sundays, Bin 26 is our quiet neighborhood joint for great food and wine served by the nicest people. On Saturday night, it comes alive with energetic music and dimmer lighting. The place was absolutely packed to the gills during this dinner (Head of the Charles brought the crowds) but the staff didn’t miss a beat. Bravo!

    An enoteca should be able to get a glass of wine into your hands in less than 30 minutes from when you sit down. Our waiter was inexperienced, undertrained, and overwhelmed. At a better restaurant, the supervisor would have noticed the problem and stepped in to help. I’m not going back any time soon.

    Where to begin. Halibut was overcooked, wine advice was misleading, and bathrooms are dirty. Don't let the server pick a wine for you without confirming the price first. We had a moderately priced bottle ($52 for the bottle). When we asked for a glass of something similar, we were poured glasses that were $30 each without being informed of that -- totally different price zipcode. Bad practice!

    What a find, we were looking for a place that had a fabulous wine offering both by the bottle and by the glass and I was delighted to take our guests here. Visiting from Oklahoma and boarding a cruise to Canada we wanted to provide our guests with a low eat, excellent meal and wine experience to showcase Boston's charm. This bistro delivered.

    Dining with a friend I hadn't seem for almost two years, I wanted it to be a treat for both of us, and it surely was. The server suggested a red wine, which was delicious. We split a green salad with goat cheese. My friend had the pork and I had 3 fat little lamb chops cooked to perfection with a balsamic caponata was perfection, and we each enjoyed throughly the little roast fingerling potatoes. We split a chocolate mouse, and had decaf coffee and decaf espresso coffee. It was busy and lively when we arrived, but as we lingered, we felt more relaxed. Both busy and quiet were delightful ways to dine. The wait staff was attentive and eager to please. It was a fine evening experience.

    With such a good rating on this app I expected a decent meal… everything cold and honestly resembled and tasted what I imagine dog food taste like. The food was very bland and the menu was confusing to begin with. However, the server was attentive and the wine was VERY good. But you should eat before you go.

    This is such a shame because it used to be one of my favorites. We had 3 mains and 2 appetizers. Arancini was flavorless, coco tagliatelle was bitter to the point of inedible. Other dishes were base, all expensive. Server didn’t seem like he wanted to be there or us to be there. At least we were on Charles St. so it was pretty and the wine was good. If you’re dying to go, just get cocktails or wine.

    We were three people, one regular and two from afar. We had 3 app's: grilled asparagus—just right; veal parmigiana—three then pieces of lightly breaded veal with delightfully melted cheese, surprisingly light and authentic flavor, and mixed olives—also both mixed and extra flavor one had perfectly cooked salmon over light bulgar, fresh and yet delicious, one herb marinated hanger steak, and one chicken saltimbocca—each of us enjoyed our entrées and we had one tiny crunchy creamy cannoli, and two other well enjoyed desserts. we were greeted warmly and served carefully and with a warm feeling of being well welcomed. it was a successful dinner and a perfect evening.
