The food was great and I am glad that we tried it. However, the cost was far to high for a return visit.

Really enjoyed spending Valentines Day at this restaurant. Ambiance was great, staff were very helpful, and we were blessed to be able to dine in their wine cellar which only enhanced the experience.

Coming from NY I have to say I enjoyed my experience and the food at Bin 54. I have been to tons of steak houses from Ruth Chris and Morton's in NYC and Bin 54 can take its place along side these spots. Food was excellent, waiter was very knowledgeable, quick and accurate. Staff was great. Highly recommend Bin 54 for out o t owners and locals alike.

Excellent food. Excellent service. Hostess very accommodating and friendly when we asked to change tables. A little noisy with casual conversation when in the main dining room, but we enjoyed it. But, I will caution you from eating on the enclosed side porch. The traffic noise, at least for me, was unbearable. If the hostess had not accommodated our request to be seated in the main dining room, we would have had to miss what otherwise was a wonderful experience.

Was very disappointed that we had a 6:00 reservation and they were out of the tuna tare tare as well as tuna steak and salmon.

Wait staff were very attentive and apologetic.

Even with a reservation we waited 15 minutes or so. Then they placed us at what had to be the noisiest spot. We asked for another table and were given one . Something has changed at Bin 54.

Our steaks were good and cooked perfectly as ordered...the scalloped potatoes were superb...My only complaint was the price of the house Chardonnay as was $18/glass which was more than better wines on the wine list, and we did not know of price until received our check.

Wonderful. Was looking for an upscale restaurant for New years eve dinner and this place fit the bill perfectly. Gorgeous space with really nice friendly staff it was a great way to ring in the new year. The food was outstanding. Our steaks were melt in your mouth and perfectly cooked. Highly recommended

I was disappointed. Went for Xmas eve because my husband loves steak. I am not a meat eater and ordered lobster tail that was not cooked in the middle. I did not send it back but took it home to cook the next day. Side dishes were bland and not much seasoning....especially the scalloped potatoes.

My wife and my parents went to Bin54 for a belated birthday dinner for me. The food was outstanding. The menu is very much a traditional steak house menu and there is nothing groundbreaking or original on the menu but they food was all cooked, seasoned, and served to perfection. Our only concern was the service was that while it was attentive it seemed a bit disorganized and we saw several different servers and were asked twice about a few things. This may have been because one server was training, it was hard to tell.

I would recommend Bin54 for a special night out.

Great overall experience. The service was top notch, from the reservation through the check.
The food tasted wonderful and there was plenty to choose from. The food was cooked exactly to order and the flavor combinations paired very well. Presentation was excellent. It was a little dark for reading the menu but it made for great atmosphere. And the room temperature was a little cold but, likewise, it's good for appetite. So I will recommend it to people with the only limitation being that I don't want to make it too hard to make a reservation!

Nice ambiance, excellent service, and great food! We both ordered the New York strip, which was cooked to perfection and flavored perfectly. We also ordered the twice baked potato, broccoli and creamed spinach, all of which were absolutely fantastic! Overall, a wonderful and memorable experience. Can't wait to go back again. Highly recommend.
