Always a memorable meal served. The wine list is extensive and varied with many interesting choices to explore. There are always many excellent choices available. The red snapper special was wonderful, coupled with an apple, walnut and cranberry salad. My “go-to” location for fine dining in Staten Island.

Brought our dear friends from New Orleans to experience our favorite NYC restaurant. Being from one of the top culinary destinations in the world, they’re not easily impressed, but they raved about Bin 5. This place never disappoints!

The appetizers were very good. Mozzarella carroza was fresh and delicious. Apple pecan salad was excellent. However, the shrimp scampi with risotto was disappointing. The shrimp was good but the risotto was like rice. Overall it was good but not as good as I was expecting. I will try again though.

Cute restaurant, delicious food, good service but a small space with the bar on one side and the kitchen on the other, at full capacity, conversation was very difficult.

Excellent cocktails, great service and friendly staff. Casual atmosphere. We did not feel rushed at all and were thoroughly satisfied with the meals we ordered. The figs stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in prosciutto appetizer were delicious and my favorite. The seafood risotto had plenty of seafood and the stuffed chicken breast special was juicy and flavorful. Overall a great meal and great evening out. Glad they made it through the pandemic!

A terrific, eclectic menu and a cozy atmosphere. The food is delicious and dietary needs are lovingly catered to. The service is just right, attentive but not overbearing. This is a family owned and run establishment that truly cares about your having a great experience. Cannot give it a high enough recommendation. Go there, you won't be disappointed.

Small, attractive, old-school restaurant on Bay Street. The kind of place where you can feel a traditional vibe but experience contemporary cuisine. Small staff, so be patient and don't be in a hurry to have dinner. The food is well worth the wait.

The food continues to be excellent, and in great variety. Nominally an Italian restaurant, the flavors of Asia and Latin America also make their presence known. The approach to social distance, the simple use of well placed shoji screens, is elegant.

The staff at Bin 5 are beyond exceptional! They are kind, accommodating and very friendly. We are very covid conscious, finding it difficult to dine out in Staten Island and the staff here were absolutely lovely to us! Every staff member went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and safe while dining in their adorable outdoor 'garden'. Not to mention the food is the best you will find!

We kept hearing good things about Bin 5 so we gave it a try. A most amazing experience! Food and drinks were exceptional. The owner, Danny, was cordial and accommodating. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive. So glad we finally made it there. It’s a small place so reservations are recommended. Can’t wait to go back!

Mothers Day is not the best day to rate a restaurant. Be that as it may, our reserves for 6:30 were not honored until 6:50. Didnt see a waiter for another 10-15 minutes. Waiter was polite and apologetic. Comped drinks. Calamari was as good as I've ever had. Pasta was undercooked but sauce was fabulous. Main course veg was raw. Food portions were more than ample. Its a cute place, could be cozy. And we will return but not on a holiday. Its pricey at 100 pp incl tip.

Mother’s Day spent there was horrible and I feel bad I made my whole family go there.
our dinner took 4 hours!! Bc of insanely slow service. One full hour between courses.
My branzino was way too salty to eat, my moms filet mignon was sooo dry and inedible.
the pasta w the veggies had zero flavor like paper.
The pistachio cake was so dry and overly sweet, totally not enjoyable.
It was 100 degrees in there, we had sweat pouring from our faces, and were boiling in our clothes, and when they shut the heater it was freezing like an ice box. Not to mention it was raining on us through the tent.
This is unacceptable, especially At $85 per person pre fixe.
I thought perhaps they will read this and know what it was like for us. So as to not repeat such a horrible experience for others.

I’m very happy to see Bin 5 has survived the pandemic, and has done so without loss of staff and quality. The wine list has many choices and is very atypical compared to other restaurants. The food is always excellent. I have not dined out since October here in the Staten Island area as a result of the cold. Glad to get back out there!

Bin 5 is one of my favorite places to dine. The appetizers were delicious. We ordered the boa buns, the crab cakes, and the burrata. For dinner we ordered the filet, the short rib, and the lobster roll. My only suggestion is that this time when I ordered the short rib, it was missing the sauciness that I experienced the first time I ordered it. It was still tender and cooked well it just needed that extra sauce on top to coat the meat and mashed potatoes. For dessert we ordered the pistachio cake and the marshmallow brownie sooooooooo delicious. The drinks were amazing and the server was great.

Never would have thought you can get such an excellent meal in Staten Island like the one we got at BIN 5. The Porterhouse for 2 was one of the best I have had and it comes with 4 sides! I can't say enough about the food, you really need to try this place. The entire staff was amazing, but Nicole was outstanding as our server.

Everything about this restaurant was great. The place was clean and smelled good. The staff was very nice. Our waiter was awesome, the staff also worked as a team in bringing and cleaning up our food. The food was fresh and awesome. Then we also had dessert (Pistachio cake)and that was delicious as well. Great atmosphere with really nice people.
