BIN 54 Ratings and Reviews
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.
My family and I have eaten at Bin 54 numerous times in the past and have generally had positive experiences. The food, while not overly creative, is well prepared and of high quality. Overall, Bin 54 is a fine example of a traditional steak house. However, on this occasion, the service was so terrible as to verge on comedic.
Much, but not all of the problem comes down to a very inexperienced and untalented server. First, after a lengthy delay the server came to our table. She announced the specials and asked if we had questions. We indicated that we did not have questions and were ready to order. Instead of taking our order, the server walked away. After 10 minutes, she returned and we made very clear that we waned to order.
Our first course arrived timely and was well prepared. After the first course was cleared, we waited 40+ minutes for the main course. Our server never came to check on us or explain the long wait. Also, we were sitting near the kitchen and it was disappointing to see our side dishes sitting under the "warming light" for 20+ minutes while the kitchen finished preparing our main dishes.
When the food finally arrived, the side dishes were lukewarm and soggy from sitting around. We politely asked for them to be replaced with fresh items. Shortly thereafter, we received 2 of the side dishes of which we had ordered only one. In addition, my duck breast main dish was ordered medium. One end of it was almost medium, but the other was cold in the center. Our server never came by to check on the main dishes.
The manager did comp us the side dishes and the first course, but this seemed like very little compensation given the overall experience. To cap off all of this, the server placed a to-go bag with desserts on our table as we paid the check. However, when we were walking to our car, the server chased us into the parking lot saying the bag was for a different table and demanded that we return it to her which we did.
We will not be returning.
We get to Bin 54 about two times a year. We have never been disappointed and the service is always great. We like that the feature cocktail actually has a pleasant, smiling face to go along with its name:) We only wish they would bring back the Cheddar Cheese Grits as a side.
Wonderful experience- great food, warm and personal service, comfortable and inviting space. All of the food was excellent, so it is difficult to select a standout. We especially loved the welcoming sommelier with his huge smile. Thank you for a memorable night!
