We were celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary. They greeted us with ‘Happy Anniversary’ and put us at a nice table. Service was amazing. We started with calamari which we both loved. I had the tuna steak rare and creamed spinach. Both were amazing. My husband had the domestic waygu NY Strip and twice baked potatoes. He enjoyed his as well. Needless to say we had leftovers. We had a cheesecake to go! They were very kind and gave us a beautiful plate with Happy Anniversary in chocolate and two macaroons and a taste of Cava. A very nice meal and evening. Highly recommend for special occasions.

We were staying over in Chapel Hill for the night and needed a place for a great dinner and nice ambiance.
We definitely chose the correct place. The place is very distinguished looking and, for a steakhouse, the noise level was very subdued.
The food was outstanding. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly, my wife’s short ribs were delicious and the macaroni and cheese was to die for.
Our server was great and very helpful. We will definitely return the next time we are in Chapel Hill.

The steak was exceptional... while the accompaniments were only ok (i.e. chimichurri sauce). The Sommelier was very helpful, though the wine list was very heavy on the pricey options... I would have preferred more choice for a bottle with a cost between $75 - $125 (the common price listed for Cabernets and Bordeaux were mostly above $300). But that's my budget... maybe their typical crowd likes the higher price point options.

I would go back often for the steak... if I lived a little closer.

Though we aren't perfect, we do strive for excellence. Where there's room to improve, we will always make the effort because guest satisfaction is our top priority. While we do have a demand for certain price points, it is important to us that our wine program provides a relatively equal balance of what we have to offer.

Nice little fine-dining spot. Service was slow. From the time we finished out appetizers to the time our main course was served it took about 20 minutes. The Veal chop was tasty however I would stay away from thier duck fat potatoes- the overwhelming taste of old grease was really off-putting. My husband enjoyed his fillet. Brussle sprouts were dry.

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!

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.

BIN 54
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.

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.

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)
