After hearing the locals rave about the restaurant, my wife and I decided to treat ourselves to an anniversary dinner. We went with the four course tasting menu pared with wines. Wow, with the pre and between course treats it's really like an eight course tasting. The creativity, Presentation and taste we're on par or better than we've ever experienced.... More

There are two thing I loved about Binkley's - the food, of course, its out of this world, and the atmosphere - warm, friendly and FUN, unlike so many high-end restaurants. Binkely's was an all around wonderful experience and so relaxed and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a special experience. Its great for a romantic dinner... More

We didn't know what to expect when we made our reservation. We ordered the four course tasting menu with wine pairing. We were expecting four courses instead we must have had six or seven additional tastes treats. The service was excellent, the restaurant had half a dozen servers just waiting to bring out the surprise treats. The treats and main... More

We had the great pleasure of dining at Binkley's in December 2013 and we were completely blown away by one of the best meals we have ever had (!) for an amazing price. (The pleasure to price ratio at Binkley's is very high indeed!) Recommended by a friend from Canada, we were very pleased we had decided to make a... More

Binkley's is a treat for the eyes and palate! If you are going to spend $150/person for a meal, it had better be special and Binkley's delivers. We had the five course meal but that really understates what you get. We had four little amuse bouches before our first appetizer arrived and there were many more. All delightfully presented and...

If you have watched countless episodes of Top Chef and you are open to molecular gastronomy, this is the place for you. Kevin Binkley is fantastic. We generally do this for our anniversary. I suggest doing the tasting menu or the tasting menu with wine pairings. In addition to your choices, you are treated to numerous amuse bouches. The food... More

There is a reason Kevin Binkley has been recognized by the James Beard Foundation. His restaurant, service and foo are outstanding. I am always hesitant to go to dinner on Valentine's Day. When most restaurants are trying to pack in people and turn tables, Binkley's was a welcome exception. Our party of four had the tasting menu with wine pairing... More

My husband and I dined at Binkley's last night and, let me start by saying, the staff was absolutely lovely. We got lost on the way (had to call three times) and ended up being well over a half hour late, but they were extremely courteous and accommodating. The chopped vegetable salad, which sounded uninteresting, was incredibly interesting and flavorful... More

Being fans of innovative cuisine but never having experienced a true molecular gastronomy meal, we were excited to go to Binkley's. Fortunately, we were not disappointed! We started with drinks and their non-bread (free) appetizer. My wife had a delicious red wine, described by an extremely knowledgeable soigneur, while I had a really tasty ginger beer martini. The appetizer consisted... More

If you like edible food art at Picasso prices, this is the place for you. Do not come here with an appetite. I don't mind spending big money on dinner, but I hate spending big money on a rip-off dinner. We spent $200 on a $60 dinner last night. I had scallops as an appetizer, and they were really "fishy".... More
