The manager and staff of this restaurant were outstanding. The food was amazing, and the ambiance was pure class.
Food was good, prices were high, service was pleasant but not meticulous (main courses not presented simultaneously), the setting was very modest, and the paper table covering inappropriate, particularly as it was not replaced after getting crumpled and stained with sauce.
They no longer have cinnamon rolls and the food was not up to par
Ambitious menu which fails to deliver on all counts. The staff and servers appeared disinterested on a Saturday night!!!! Asked for sparkling water which was not available, cold, on a day when the restaurant was half empty. We've been to the main restaurant in cave creek and were impressed but this one is a huge disappointment. I do not think we liked any dish including the starters.
Very nice atmosphere both inside and out. The road noise was moderate but distracting. The servicer was good, but admittedly new to the restaurant and didn't know the answers to most questions. I had the sand dabs, which were fine, but a little boring. My friends had the mahi and it was better. Would recommend and will go back soon to try out other dishes.
This is yet another Phoenix restaurant with unnecessary valet parking. I hate the prevailing thought that valet parking is a convenience. Bink's, North, Chelsea's Kitchen, Buck and Rider, St. Francis, Little Cleo's....the list goes on. Please, it is really annoying to have to wait 3,or 4 minutes for my car when I can see it 30' away.
Food is good but pricey compared to other similar restaurants in town. We were not offered any dessert because they wanted us out as quickly as possible, and when that still kept us in the restaurant (celebrating a birthday with 7 people), they turned the lights on and started cleaning to let us know that we really should be on our way (at 9.30 pm). For the kind of money that we spent, the least that we would expect is a certain level of professionalism/customer service. I sent them the same comment and no one bothered to even reply. None of us will ever be back there, too many other good options around for less money and better service.
Rated as one of the ten best places for brunch - Bink's Midtown was a disappointment. The Green Chile Pork was highly recommended with cheddar cheese bisquits. After a very long wait (diners around us received their meals much sooner and arrived later) the portion was small for the price. The bisquit was in recognizable and indistinguishable in color from the pork as it was cooked to a complete crisp. The taste of the pork was okay but not memorable. A companion ordered Eggs Benedict which were ok and came with homemade chips that had so much grease on them they were chewy.
Excellent food. We had the mozzarella, onion rings, and chop salad.
Everything was fresh and tasted great!
Bink's is very close to home, which is always a plus. We were so pleasantly surprised by the eclectic menu. We tried a variety of things. The buckwheat biscuits topped with vanilla butter, yum. Loved the fries and dips and the mushroom soup. The Mixed Greens Salad was a great variety of ingredients for a very good price. Enjoyed the Pulled to Order Mozzarella with an excellent asparagus pesto. A couple of delicious craft beers and we were full. But, we carried on anyway, and split a burger. You have the option to order a double patty for an extra $6 bucks, which I would recommend as the single patty was a bit skimpy for such a big bun. The patty was cooked to our liking, but I felt they could have warmed up the bun a bit. Of course, from there we had to have dessert. I can't recall the name of the company that makes their ice cream, but the Cardamon ice cream and the Medjool Date ice cream were both excellent and big scoops as well. Our server Tiffany, was efficient and delightful. We had a great time at Bink's.
Sloppy joes were great, but hamburgers only OK, chicken salad not so good. This place used to be better. Even the menu choices were not great. This probably doesn't really matter since this place will be giving way to Binkley's main restaurant.
