Every time my wife and I go to Bin54, we have the best evening of our lives. The food of course is exceptional and there is nothing on the menu that is not delicious!

The service is the best in the industry. The staff always knows my wife’s allergies. Our preferences on water are always remembered and they make recommendations based on things we have eaten in the past. All without us telling them.

This time we made use of the sommelier and he was fantastic. The Croix Zinfandel worked with every step of our meal.

It is not exaggeration to say this is the best restaurant in the Triangle and the best restaurant we have eaten at in this country. And we have eaten the best in Chicago, New York and San Diego.

Normally I would recommend Bin 54 but my steak was old tasting. I didn’t complain because I had eaten about half of it when I gave a piece to my wife and she diagnosed that it was old tasting. Her filet was good, but frankly we had better steaks at Houston’s in Atlanta earlier in the week. We live in Kentucky but are in the Triangle regularly. I should have figured out the problem and sent it back, but the chef should probably have smelled the old flavor too.

Hello John, We strive for excelence but sometimes we fall a little short. Unfortunatly we did not become aware of your concerns until your review, so we were not able to address them at the time. As we take quality seriously, we noticed you ordered the 28 day dry aged NY strip. While tenderizing and concentrating flavors its does impart a aroma that is unique to the dry aging process. Some prefer that flavor while others dont and thats alright with us, we would always prefer a satisified guest.

Very warm, welcoming restaurant - had reservations, but got there early to enjoy a drink at the bar. Bartender very engaging and enjoyable! Table located in the middle of the restaurant, but very comfortable for conversation. Waiter was excellent - informative, interactive, knowledgeable; food was outstanding. I did send my entree back, but the replacement dish was very good. Sommelier helped with our wine selection, and we enjoyed that very much as well. Overall, an outstanding evening! I would recommend it to friends and return myself.

This was my 2nd time at BIN54 and I had a very nice time. I ordered the doc and once again it was great. I also had a desert and it was very nice as well. The next time I visit I will bring a friend with me so that they too can enjoy the environment and the food. Vicky was an absolute wonderful waitress and I hope I have the opportunity to have her again.

They didn't have my table ready. I thought a reservation meant they would be expecting me? The interior was beautiful and well suited for date night and the food was flavored well, but you didn't get your money's worth nor was the quality of the food up to a respectable standard. Be prepared to break the bank eating there; as one person I spent $177. Service was timely, but things took a turn for the worse towards the conclusion of the evening. A customer should never feel rushed, but I certainly was. The manager forced a dessert on me because I was a little indecisive and the hostess kept looking at me. I was made to feel like it was time to leave as soon as dessert was over. Once the candles and silver got pulled away, I noticed the cold stares, fake smiles and distant attitude of the staff. This was my first and last time.

Responded on September 5, 2019

Our apologies for not having your table ready. It was a last minute decision to switch tables because our chairs would have been uncomfortable for you. I wasn't made aware of any problem when I stopped by but I did however, enjoy talking with you about our desserts so much that the reason I sent out the creme brûlée was because you said you had never had one and thought it would be nice to give you one to try. Our intentions were based in kindness and Im sorry this is how they were perceived.

Outstanding in every way! I discovered this restaurant while searching online for nice places to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday dinner. There were so many positive reviews, and Bin 54 did not disappoint! Vickie was our server and she far exceeded all expectations of superb attention to all of our desires. The steak, duck, and pork cops entrees were pure perfection, the wine selection is impressive, and the desserts are delectable! From beginning to end our nearly 4 hour dining experience was incredible, and I would highly recommend Bin 54 for all occasions! I hope to visit again the next time I'm in town.

Food is excellent. Totally agree with other reviews. If you want a good steak, this is where you go. Everything is fresh. Yes a bit pricy but you do get what you pay for. Service was also great. My only criticism is the dining room really needs to be redone: it's dark and a bit gloomy.

My one complaint is the salt on the table. Cool to have coarse salt and a tiny spoon as a piece on the table, but not practical. I felt that my steak needed a “bit” of salt, but was tough to control with the option on the table. Felt I was consistently over salted and under salted. Minor, but this could’ve made my experience better. A simple shaker or a grinder would’ve done the trick. Great restaurant and meal overall!

Hello Genet, We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your meal. Course sea salt surely can be a bit tricky sometimes--Next time you visit us, please allow us to provide you with a set of more "traditional" salt/pepper shakers which we do have in-house and available upon request. Seasoning is crucial and we are willing to take that extra step for a *perfect* experience!

We celebrated our 37th Wedding Anniversary at Bin 54. My wife had the duck which she thought was very good. She enjoyed the cherry sauce served on the side. I had the 6oz filet with bernaise sauce which also was very good, but I wish they had not sliced the steak before serving it. We both shared the creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes which were both very good. The lava cake was excellent. The service was outstanding.

Overall a nice experience. The food was hit and miss. Crab cake and Vespar cocktail were great. Steak tartare had good flavor, but not cut very well, some big chunks making it chewy. Looked like the person cutting it needed a sharper knife. Wedge salad was badly over dressed making it soggy. Ribeye was good, not sure the quality was there for the price though. My son loved his twice baked potato. Service, atmosphere, and wine list were all top notch. I would go back, just maybe order different things.

Ambiance, Greetings, Wine &Drinks - Fantastic

Service - very slow (GJ the waiter apologized as he was doing 2 positions at the same time, waiter & sommelier). I understand but it’s not exactly a low price restaurant to accept that. Other big tables that were seated after us were treated better and faster. I stayed calmed & relaxed as I didn’t want to spoil my anniversary dinner.

Food - good, yet the NY Steaks were somewhat hard (and I ordered Medium Rare - they came well done. Did not returned them as I din’t feel comfortable anymore.) The Pate foie gras as well as Companions were great (Mushrooms, spinach, etc)

Waygu Ribeyes and Italian Brunello and Barbaresco wines coupled with ample sides of mashed potatoes, sauteed spinach, asparagus, and sauteed Brussel sprouts made such a delightful dinner for 6 of us co-workers at my firm. We also started with the cheese board, 2 orders of lobster gnocchi, and a fried oyster salad over a nice bottle of Chardonnay.
Ran into the master chef and restauranteur, George Bakatsias, and after a few hugs and laughs, went about the rest of the meal topped by cheesecake and banana pudding. Excellent!

Third or fourth visit to BIN 54 and the one constant is that the food is always excellent and the prices a bit high. Service is hit or miss or I should say two or three hits and one miss. This latest time was a bit subpar as far as the service went. My wife and I shared a wedge salad and the scallop appetizer, we had the Porterhouse (32 oz) served for two, our sides were mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts and creamed spinach (probably could have gone with one less side but hey they were great and they came home with us). Toped that off with the Banana Pudding - which yup - we shared.
