This was a great place to celebrate our two runners after the Chicago marathon. The menu had something to offer everyone. The french fries are DELICIOUS! Everyone loved their meals, and we had some picky people with us. The space is very nicely decorated. Great outdoor space also. They have a private area also. The staff was excellent. Nothing bad to say about this place.

Best brussel sprouts in the city!
Bin 36 is a bit far from my office but worth the long walk or short cab ride. The brussel sprouts appetizer is to die for and great for sharing among 2-3 people. I also enjoy receiving the e-mails about their daily (Monday through Friday) $8 lunch specials, which are a great value and always seem to offer an interesting variety from week to week. Overall, great food and great service and I can't recall a dining experience at Bin 36 where I left feeling disappointed.

Bin 36 is a wine bar that happens to make great food. They have an excellent and simple recommended wine pairing system. Our service was impeccable. The menu is small, but the food was good, if not especially noteworthy.

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.
