OpenTable Diner (Chicago)

Open Table allowed us to make reservations for Thurs 1/4 lunch but when I arrived, I learned the restaurant was closed for the holidays. Why would Open Table allow me to make reservations if the place was closed. Did the restaurant forget to tell Open Table? Is there a glitch in Open Table's system? This was a business lunch. Whatever the reason, I was utterly disappointed. (FYI I was forced to give 1 stars in order to submit this. It should really be 0s)

Restaurant didn't update opentable availability and allowed a reservation on a day the restaurant was closed. I made a reservation for an important family event and was not notified until less than four hours prior to the reservation that they were closed that day. Awful experience.

Having a wine flight at Bin 36 is always a pleasure, and Enoch Shully is the consummate host. The kitchen makes some very tasty dishes at reasonable prices.

This was a great place for drinks, food was not as good as I thought it would be. However, service was top notch! A friend and I went for my birthday and they gave us a free glass of champagne and chocolate cake, very generous! I would go back for drinks and small bites, but not for a full meal.

Just had Thanksgiving meal with friends. Their 3-course meal was family style and pretty filling. Stuffing might have been a little burned but overall great choices. I especially liked pumpkin polenta & cauliflower soup 💕 Service was somewhat slow but not many people were working. We were thankful to have a place serving Thanksgiving meal at reasonable price. Will definitely come back!

Thanksgiving dinner special. Food was quite good and the portions were generous. The wine pairing was nice but stingy for the price.

Overall a pleasant tasty mean with a nice ambiance.

Came to Bin 36 for Thanksgiving dinner and had a great meal. It's a huge meal, so you definitely won't leave hungry! The staff and our server were courteous and professional and accommodated our dietary requirements. My girlfriend is vegetarian and I'm allergic to both peanuts and shellfish. They came up with a great veggie option for my girlfriend and made sure I didn't get any peanuts or shellfish in my meals.
The ambiance was nice, until it got busy and then it was pretty crowded and noisy. Not surprising for Thanksgiving dinner, but if you want a quiet dinner, better to go on a slower night.
Overall, I would recommend Bin 36 for a date night, or nice dinner out, during a slow weeknight.
