We had heard of Bin5 from a few friends and finally had a chance to go recently. What an awesome little spot.
The food was amazing. The vibe was pretty chill. The outdoor seating area was had a heat lamp that made the seating out there cozy on a chilly night. And the wait staff was fantastic.
Would recommend 100% and will definitely be going back again.

For our very first time at Bin 5, we had an outstanding experience. The atmosphere is casual, but everyone there is dedicated to making the customers' time there a great one. The service people are obviously well-trained, knowledgeable, experienced, and courteous, but they are not intrusive or overly familiar. The food was simply great. My wife's red snapper and my grilled skirt steak were cooked perfectly, tasted great, and were accompanied by side dishes and ingredients that went well with the main part of the entree. The flatbread appetizer was an excellent surprise. It also was wonderfully tasty and, frankly, could also have been an entree. I loved the coconut flan! After a filling meal, it was a great light dessert to end the evening. We also enjoyed toasting our anniversary celebration with excellent glasses of prosecco. As you can tell, we thought it was worth the price and we would go back again without pause. Thank you, Bin 5!

So nice to be back here for dinner!!!! Upon entering greeted by all & welcoming us & our pick of table!!!! Chris saw us & already started to make our Mezcal Mules...OMG SO GOOD!!!! We usually get a bunch of appetizers because we can't decide what we want...and the Specials were amazing as well....and we ordered too much but took some HOME. Bin 5 is a GEM & so glad they are in our Neighborhood. I checked in on FB & surprised at how many haven't been here yet...WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR...From A-Z....very good. I'm limited on what I eat but always find something, YES VEGAN FRIENDLY. Make your rez now..BTW loved the Vinos Finos de Rioja!
Thank you!!!

Food was amazing! We sat outside on a lovely early fall day but the inside is very intimate and inviting too. We had the scallops appetizer. I had the grilled salmon. Husband had red snapper in a basil cream sauce. All fantastic. Really one of the best dining experiences we've had recently.

I went to dinner last night with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. We were welcomed, well-fed, and well taken care of and even though we were there for hours, we were never once made to feel rushed or unwanted. The food was delicious and plentiful and all the employees were polite, personable, and professional.

Crab cakes with jicama slaw outstanding. Cranberry pecan salad a party in my mouth. Short rib ravioli in mushroom cream sauce from yhe specials menu chock full of short ribs. Go hungry! Nice outdoor dining, both covered and open.
Only wish wine- by -the -glass choices were greater. Would have enjoyed a simple montepulciano d'Abruzzo, but settled for a so-so pinot noir.

Bin5 still going strong. Always have interesting, seasonal specials and while many restaurants have been cutting corners with their ingredients and crappy alcohol after COVID, Bin5 still using fresh, quality ingredients in all of their dishes. And when you ask for a Don Julio there's no doubt you're getting Don Julio!! Even some new desserts, which were awesome.

Great to see that they continue to care about their food, customers and the experience. If you're going to spend money make it worth it !

This was our second time to Bin 5. Although we want to really love the place, it’s just an average experience. We sat down at 8pm and yet our entree’s didn’t arrive until 9:15pm. Our apps, which came out relatively quickly, were just ok. Crab cakes were good but nothing I couldn’t make at home. The entree’s took way to long to get to the table. We sat for easily 30-35 mins after having our apps cleared with no food on the table. When the food arrived it was just average. Shrimp Scampi with zucchini noodles was good but nothing special. 1/2 chicken with mashed potatoes and carrots, simple dish but tasty. Lobster roll/sandwich was a disappointment. Lobster was none existent in the sandwich but the French fries were good. The only real positive of the evening was the cannoli donut( which was excellent the first time we had at it as well). Overall, the staff is very nice, I don’t think I can blame them for the loooonnngg wait time for food but when you take in to account the price of the food, we will not be going back. We love to cook ourselves as well as experience different restaurants and nothing we have had in both experiences is worth the price tag and the wait. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the cocktails are delicious, but the food quality just doesn’t match the price.

We ordered the porterhouse steak for two and the whole meal was phenomenal. I would recommend getting a smaller appetizer if you really want. The porterhouse meal is so big we had to take some home.

My party of 4 sat on the outside patio. Staff was pleasant, but initial service was slow. We ordered 4 cocktails and it seemed like it took forever for them to arrive. They WERE worth the wait though - tasted terrific! Service picked up and our appetizers, dinner and wine came shortly after we finished there cocktails. Four different dinner choices, ALL were excellent and large portions. A little bit pricey, but worth it for the quality of the good and drinks. Would definitely recommend and go back again.
