amazing food and even better service. Bin 5 is doing their best with the current situation and the tent makes for some good indoor dining that is actually outside. we'll be back for sure

We had such a great ladies night at Bin 5 this past weekend! Delicious food and drinks, great ambiance and excellent service. We were so happy to have a safe and socially distanced outdoor dining space while supporting a local small business!
The tent was warm and homey and the service impeccable. A bit on the pricier end, but worth it for a date night or a fun special night out. They have entrees ranging from $20-$50 so lots of price points to choose from! Will defiantly be back!

An eclectic menu unlike anything else you'll see on Staten Island and the cocktails are original and out of this world. The service is attentive without being intrusive. The outdoor dining was perfectly comfortable. I did not need to wear my jacket while eating despite it being January.

My meal: mozzarella en corroza (trust me this isn't the same old same old)
ravioli osso bucco (fabulous and something I'd never heard of) coconut flan it was the perfect ending to the meal.

Everything was top notch, from the food to the service, to the ambience. My last two visits were fantastic. I highly recommend the seafood risotto, the flat iron steak, and the pistachio crusted tuna. The cocktails are original and tasty. And the cookie pie ala mode was outrageous!!

I don't even know where to begin. This was our 2nd time dining at Bin 5. Food is just perfect. The Eggplant Lasagna is absolutely hands down my most favorite eggplant ever. Other item my family enjoyed during this visit were the Rice Balls (which were another favorite) Radiatore Bolognese, and my son enjoyed his Bin 5 Burger. I enjoyed the Flat Iron steak - it was cooked to perfection. Unfortunately we didn't have dessert this time, but the Dessert Sampler should be something you leave room for!!! For years we would go to Manhattan to enjoy a nice dinner, but if there's one thing COVID has done, is that it has kept us trying restaurants closer to home. And Bin 5 has now become a place we will visit again and again. They went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant experience which really means a lot these days. Please give them a try - you will not be disappointed!

My friends and I had a great dinner here. The tables indoors are sufficiently spaced and there is also outdoor dining. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy. The service is top notch! Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable of their menu. My friend is vegan and she found great options, including dessert. The food was delicious and there is a great variety to choose from on their menu. Steak tacos were great! We can't wait to come back to support this local business.

We wanted some place special for our 2rd wedding anniversary. We placed the reservation & noted it was our Anniversary. We arrived, greeted & Nichole wished us "Happy Anniversary " . We requested to sit outside & were brought out to the Garden to sit under the heated tent. So comfortable. We placed our drink orders & Chris came out w/ two complimentary flutes of champagne & wished us Happy Anniversary. The menus has so many choices & GF / Vegan options, which I love. We place our order. Aptzer & dinner were excellent. We ordered a bottle of wine & asked Chris for his opinions. Everything was AMAZING!!! Great service, drinks, food & atmosphere. A total dining experience that makes BIN5 what it is!!!! Thank you!!!

A bit chilly that night for outdoor dining, but the food and drink brought great comfort, as always. Diversity of the menu makes for some difficult choices when it’s time to order. Save room for the pistachio walnut cake, or any of the other delights they serve.

Food and service were both excellent. Cocktails beyond excellent! Calamari was probably best we ever had. Filet Mignon melted in your mouth and shrimp tacos were very good.
Tent was heated and we felt very comfortable. Highly recommend!!

We had amazing experience. Food was delicious and very creative. Amazing list of cocktails. Service was outstanding. Place is very cleaning, with outside seating and heat. I would high recommend this place for a family dinner or lunch. There are variety of dishes you can choose from fish, meat, seafood. Desserts are amazing, you can order a plate with five different desserts to taste.

It was so great to be back at Bin 5! It’s always a great food & service experience. Service was slower than in the past because they are working with less staff - it’s fine. The food and wine was just as delicious. The outdoor tent with lights and heater was lovely. Not sure that patrons are 6 feel apart - our dinner companions were only about 3, maybe 4 feet away tops from diners at the table next to ours. Wishing them all the best,it felt wonderful to be back!

Food and drinks were fantastic. Their drink menu is so creative and they make the best drinks I’ve ever had. My flat iron steak was cooked to perfection with a very tasty chimichurri sauce. The backyard seating was nice and they had a heater so it was very comfortable. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was dessert. It was a peanut butter cookie with ice cream. Ice cream was great, but the cookie was very hard. But overall a great meal.
