Bin 36 Ratings and Reviews

Though a long-time fan of Bin 36, this was my first time experiencing since their move to the West Loop. The wine list is always outstanding, and the food is excellent. I highly recommend their Sangria blend, as it has a very unique, spiced flavor. The cheese plates, imported salami, and roasted Brussel sprouts were excellent for sharing. I also highly recommend the Hangar Steak / Flank Steak, as the portion size is not too overwhelming, and the subtle flavors blended with the duck fat roasted potatoes are heavenly. Of the many excellent choices in the West Loop, Bin 36 is definitely worth the stop.

Fun spot for a girls night. We had wine flights, a meat and cheese plate and the halibut special. The fish was nicely cooked and the staff was quite attentive. Even had a small glass of bubbly for my birthday! It rained so we couldn't enjoy the patio. Next time, I'll be back!

Not a patch on the original operation out on Dearborn. Location is good....if anyone finds it. The menu is reduced and honestly, the food should be better; the staff more responsive too. Such a shame as Enoch has worked so hard building it up....

I loved my white wine, bubbly flight. My boyfriend was less impressed with his Argentinian flight. The triple x cheese flight was great minus the mozzarella. I liked the grilled calamari. My lamb was very good too and the service was great!

Have been here many times and have enjoyed it, but this was first visit to new location and was disappointed. Service was incredibly slow - took well over 20 minutes to get a drink (and they were not busy) and server seemed to be in a rush (walked away before I even finished ordering). Food was mediocre. Portions were a lot smaller than I remembered as well, including the cheese platters which seemed extra-sparse. Bummed because I've had great experiences here in the past at old location!

I took my (adult) niece there for a celebration. We ate in a nice, shady outdoor space and opted for the 5 course fixed price meal ($60 each). I do not drink but my niece does and she ordered a wine flight. The flight was modified (with her happy OK) to reflect the tasting menu. She was very pleased with the wine selections and we both very much enjoyed the imaginative food, which included king salmon prepared 3 ways. Note: the chef brought out each course to the table. I would add that I found the food to be creatively prepared but with enough restraint so that the primary tastes were not obscured.
Total cost, including 5 glasses of wine, tax and tip was about $200.

Dined with a group of 8 in town for a conference. Most other patrons were sitting outside, so inside was very quiet, felt like a private dinner for the team. Food was spectacular, and the arrangement of the flights is beautifully easy. Will definitely visit Bin 32 again.

Wine and cheese are clearly the highlighted items. Food choices are limited, and the quality and variety of dinner entrees are not especially high. But the wine flights and appetizers, coupled with the high quality service, made this an enjoyable evening overall.
Just hosted a business luncheon and food/service was great.
Have "bin there" numerous times since the West Loop opening in Spring 2015 for luncheons, social dinners and private events. One of my favorite venues, ambience/staff good, pricing reasonable and nice consistency in varied food/beverage offerings.
Disappointing in every way.
I had high hopes, having been a fan of the River North Location. The service was slow and inattentive. The food was slow and disappointing. Lunch took 90 excruciating minutes. There is little to no chance I will ever give 36 another shot.
Good Food - Okay Service
We had to ask our waiter for napkins and silverware AFTER our food came. It would take him 10-20 minutes before he would stop by our table each time when we needed something, and when he did he seemed rushed. Maybe they were understaffed that day? I understand that they were probably busy as it was one of the first warm summer nights of the season, but to have to ask for a knife and a napkin after getting your meal? Seems a little silly. The food and wine were phenomenal though and I LOVED the special sauce. Also we asked the waiter for a cheese recommendation and he perfectly suggested one that had exactly the taste that we had wanted at the moment. So kudos to him for that!
Love the new Bin
Loved Province, sad they closed. Always wanted to love the old Bin, but it was kind of big and loud and hard to manage service.
New Bin, which I believe arose when some old Bin employees bought the concept and name, works well in the space. Service always attentive and friendly. Similar wine and cheese concepts, better food, and now smaller -- more of a neighborhood gem.

Fantastic food, some unique choices. The wine flights were tasty and decent price. We had theater tickets and they were very cognizant of our time crunch. The only negative was that it was very loud and difficult to have a conversation. Easy to find, good location slightly away from the theater mobs which I liked and was a plus for me.

Had an absolutely amazing experience here!! Came in looking for some good wine and good food and was not disappointed. My girlfriend and I saw they had a chef's menu and we were sold. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. The chefs make an excellent meal experience and if you can't trust the chefs then why go to a restaurant. Everything from start to finish was great. Every single person who came to our table was friendly and wanted to make sure we were taken care of. Our server Aaron was friendly and funny. I'm head over heels for this place. I can't wait to go back.
