Filet Mignon was perfect. I ordered one of the specials, 16 oz NY Strip. It was good not great. The risotto side was fantastic. Potatoes cooked in duck fat were phenomenal. Banana pudding is my favorite dessert there and it still is.

Came for my wedding anniversary - messed up our salad order, my steak came out rare but was supposed to be medium. They took it back and cooked it more but it tasted terrible. The potato purée wasn’t good either. For a $125+ dinner it was a huge disappointment.

We enjoyed our dining experience at BIN54 on 2/22/20. The restaurant seemed busy and our waiter was a bit preoccupied. Our food was prepared exquisitely except for the macaroni side dish had some cold spots in it.
We informed our waiter and he stated he would inform the kitchen.

We always go here every Valentine’s Day and maybe one other time during the year… It’s a favorite for us. The fish special was a little less great than usual, and I was really disappointing. Fish seemed a little “off”. Neither of us ate it and my husband always eats everything! But the weather did give us a free dessert. I have to say that it was a really unusual that we didn’t love everything there.

Ran out of 2/3 of the food options we wanted on the pre fixed menu. Food took 40 min between each course. Was not offered anything for any of the problems.

It was Valentines Day, so I can understand some shortfalls. The Gnocchi meals were out of supple, as was the Creme Brulee dessert. They didn't inform us of either issues until late after we'd ordered. When we picked alternate desserts, they only brought one of the two. The food is good, but for the price we paid ($85 per plate, excluding drinks) I expected the service to be flawless.

Me and my wife tried this spot out on Valentine’s Day. The ambiance and service was good, but both of our steaks were well under cooked and cold. Will remove this place of our repeat visit list. No excuse for a “Steak House” to make the star of the show be underwhelming

Always a Chapel Hill fave of ours!!! Such great food, energy and ambiance. Only negative thing I could say is it is so popular and loved, the wear and tear on the restaurant was starting to show a little. My leather chair was so loved it was starting to fray and rip. But, we will definitely be back!!!

My guest frequently dimes at steak houses in NYC and said the food was just as good and the prices for both the food and wine a bargain. He loved the tuna tartare and cheese
Board and had the Ahi tuna entree with a Russel Sprouts and sautéed spinach. My other guest had the Aussie Wagu ribeye and me the Aussie rack of lamb. Topped with 2 very

We went here for a birthday celebration. My friend had a 10 oz. filet and I had the bone in ribeye. We shared calamari and asparagus. Everything was delicious. The steaks were melt in your mouth tender. The service was outstanding...attentive but not overbearing. Very professional. The setting was surprising for the strip mall location. It has a very clubby, steak house feel. Although there were several large groups, the noise level was very comfortable. I have trouble hearing in loud restaurants, and we were able to have a normal conversation here. I have already booked another reservation for graduation.

so at 8:00 PM on a saturday night, you should not run out of porterhouse steak. The 3 filet mignons were a bit overdone and the rib eye was a bit tough. Service was very good and wait staff friendly but overall not what i was hoping for,

We'd like to extend our apologies concerning these issues davidb. We strive to maintain the highest quality and standards yet sometimes we miss the mark. While we understand the issue of availability, we order based on demand and at times we can't foresee the surprise of a higher demand on a given night. It's never ideal but there is always that possibility of selling out. We would love the opportunity to right our wrong so please contact us to reach a solution that we can both be happy with.

Our meal was excellent. The filet was absolutely as good as it gets. Our salad, the green beans, everything was first rate. I thought the wine was slightly overpriced in that by-the-glass seemed to be less generous than I am used to at other, similar high-end restaurants we frequent. Iam gonna guess that the red was measured at 4 ounces or maybe 5? Just a little more. A small complaint really. We were totally satisfied and very happy with the evening. Our wait service was excellent as well. We’ll be back for sure!

The one thing that is critical at an expensive steak restaurant is that the steak is good. When I recently visited for a work engagement, Bin 54 was able to deliver on that. Unfortunately, from a food perspective, that was all they were able to deliver on. We tried 4 different sides and they ranged from a mushy version of brussel sprouts to a bland duck fat potatoes. My wife’s catch of the day fish entree was uninteresting and didn’t have the pop that it could have. I hope that Bun 54 can take it up a notch and provide and exceptional menu from top to bottom.

After several really elegant meals at Bin 54, what a disappointment. Despite a reservation, we were seated in a cold overflow room at a table in the dark with an AC fan blowing right on us and with other similar sized tables empty. When we asked to be moved, the hostess said that all the tables were booked “because of the basketball game” that had already started. We asked again so she left to “see what she could do” and did not return for 10 minutes. Finally, she did come back and we were moved to another table across the room. Duh!

The food also was mediocre. A salad consisted solely of lettuce with a little dressing on top, steak filet was tasteless and tough, and “cheesecake with berries” was a lump of congealed mush with two blackberries on top.

This all from a restaurant that prides itself for its quality of food and service (with accompanying price).

We are devastated to hear about this, and even more sorry to disappoint but feedback like this is essential to our improvement! Last minute table changes aren't always easy, but we do our best to accommodate last minute requests without compromising the integrity of our floor plan or earlier requests made by other guests. We would like the opportunity to appropriately address ALL these issues in a suitable way. Please reach out so we can find a solution that we can both will be happy with.

We came here for my daughter's 20th birthday. As always, the staff knew my wife's allergies and preferences for no ice in her water. I spoke to a friend recently who has opened several steakhouses in NY and he mentioned that the fine dining experience is both service and food, and knowing your customer's preferences are primary on that list. Bin54 is the best at this.

We all ordered filets, and they were cooked perfectly for our individual preferences, the wine was exquisite, and dessert was amazing. The chef and Vicki, our server also gave us some clues as to the origins of my wife's allergy. Thank you again - it's always a memorable experience.

Incredible service. Everyone was friendly and helpful. All of our questions were answered easily. My wife and I went here for New Year's Eve. We both got the 10oz Filet Mignon. Hers was outstanding and mine was very good. My only concern was my filet was more 'charred' on the outside than I prefer. The meat was cut into thirds and was a little dry especially since it was medium rare. Don't get me wrong it was still good and we will be back.
My wife bout me a Macallan Flight at the bar which was outstanding and a great addition to the bar menu.
