    For such an establishment and prices, I expected vastly more. While no denying the meal was good, the steak was on the cusp of being too salty and on the cusp of being undercooked and quite difficult to cut with so many tough tendons. It does not help that the knives are among the dullest I’ve used at steak houses. While I was not articulately disappointed at anything, I was also not impressed with the entire experience as well. Therefore, I cannot, in good conscious, recommend my experience. The staff was wonderful and the ambience relaxing.

    It was our first time eating there. The steaks were wonderful. I had a filet and my husband had the bone in filet, both medium rare. We got the chimichurri and the red wine Demi glacé. We’re were surprised they tasted different with different steaks. Overall, it was excellent. We were disappointed in the dessert. We split the molten chocolate cake, but it was very small. We didn’t mind the size as much as paying $15 for a dessert that was only worth 1/2 that much.

    Eh. This was not our best trip to Bin 54. The service was very friendly but super slow. We waited for everything starting with our pre-dinner drinks. My steak was tough. I ordered it medium rare but it came medium well and it was just not a great cut of meat. Even the cocktails were a little off. A lot of vermouth in the Manhattan, mediocre French 75. We will be back but it wasn’t our best meal.

    We decided to try Bin 54 for our Anniversary. It had been there a while and we moved to this area a couple of years ago (but only recently could start dining out regularly again). The food was outstanding - from appetizer to dinner to dessert. My wife loved her Shortrib and I loved my Tuna Steak. The restaurant is not large and we went on a Wednesday. While not packed, the restaurant was probably 3/4 full, creating a quiet and pleasant atmosphere. The prices were not totally out of line with other similar high-end restaurants, but we found the a-la-carte sides a little expensive at $14 - adding 2 sides and you're at $28. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and we will absolutely be going back.

    The duck is awesome and accompanied with an Amarone or Barbaresco, splendido! Added the crab cakes and scrimp ceviche to get it going. My wife had the ahi tuna and really enjoyed it... just shows it is not only about the filet even though BIN 54 does it better than anyone else.

    Greeters very friendly and seated us at a very nice corner table. The Aberdeen room's ambiance was nice and was well lite for my old eyes. The server seemed to do a lot of steps and not accomplish much, he could have been a little more attentive, but he was nice with a strange sense of humor. The food was excellent but I have had better for a cheaper price. Cocktails are very expensive. Would I go back? I would not not often.

    Everyone at my table thoroughly enjoyed their meal, the low-lit warm ambience, the roomy leather booth. All very Premier NYC Steakhouse with one major difference: the service. Our waiter Tom took our meal into “special occasion” territory: sharp, funny, knowledgeable, he was a true professional. Additional notes on food/drink: they had me at the chimmichurri and wasabi-miso sauces for my perfectly rare , perfectly delicious New York Strip and no bar makes a better Vesper martini.

    My husband and I came to Bin 54 to celebrate our anniversary and it was a really lovely experience! The ambience is subtle and tasteful, our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable but not overbearing, and the food was truly delicious. We each started with a cocktail (I can't remember which ones now, but they were both well balanced and very flavorful) and then each had a seasonal appetizer - carrot ginger gazpacho for him, watermelon feta salad for me. For the main course, he had the filet mignon, medium rare, with the Poivre sauce, and then I had the duck with the cherry sauce. We also had sautéed spinach with ricotta salata and duck fat potatoes on the side. Everything was cooked perfectly, the timing between courses was excellent, and of course it all tasted amazing. The only slight disappointment was dessert - nothing on the menu really called out to us (I would have loved a plain creme brûlée!), but we were very full, so it wasn't a huge deal. We will definitely be back!

    A disappointing experience. The seating assigned to us was uncomfortable, cramped and dark - so dark I needed my phone light to read the menu and really needed it to see what I was eating. Our appetizers (mussels & crabcake) were good although not exceptional. The $55 NY strip was incredibly salty and tough as old rope. I could not fight my way into that lump with the steak knife provided. While it looked good, the meat was so full of gristle it was impossible to cut. My wife's gnocchi was better but not "fluffy" and also very salty. Service was condescending and ignored obvious signs of dissatisfaction.

    I really enjoyed my visit to Bin 54! The steaks were fantastic (with a wide variety of sauces that were EXCELLENT), and the ambience was extremely good; appropriately aged wood and dark velvets. Felt like old-world Hollywood! I was most impressed by the service. Our main server Joe was classy and friendly, and definitely knew his stuff. And there was a small procession of other servers who brought various courses and filled drinks. All dressed to the nines, and all a pleasure to interact with. Only small criticism might be that the ambient music could be a bit loud at times. Not overpowering by any means, and we had a great dinner!

    Just divine from start to finish. Everything was excellent, from the food to the service. Was it expensive? Oh yes, but here’s a case where you get what you pay for. Loved everything. I had the peppercorn crusted tuna, Caesar salad, and the outrageous banana pudding for dessert. My date had the 10 ounce filet mignon and the scalloped potatoes. Wine was superb. Just an incredible evening and can’t wait to go back when I visit Chapel Hill again (I’m from California).

    We had a 3 course meal for Mother's Day. I was a little disappointed with the appetizers because there weren't enough choices. And why would they not offer a salad with your meal. Salads are cheap, it shouldn't have been extra! Some of the food options were a bit bland.
