Bin 228 had been one of our favorites to stop for a little bite and a good glass of wine in the past few years, when going into the city of Hartford. So we ventured there again after a late afternoon and early evening event. We found it looking even more decorated as we had seen it the last time,... More

She had a special of mushroom ravioli which she said she enjoyed. The service was also great. My one negative is that... More

Very cozy atmosphere. Highly recommend this spot for tapas or a full dinner. Seating is intimate; and street parking is not great ($5 for... More

This is a great place to grab a glass of wine. If you are hungry you can grab an appetizer, panni or a full dinner and Dessert is great. Most Items are made there fresh. The cheese fondue is a great favorites as well as the meat or cheese platters.

Whether it's small plates or dinner entrees, Bin 228 won't disappoint. Wines by the glass, lovely appetizers and interesting entrees. We'll often have a glass of wine and 2 or 3 appetizers to share before theater, and return after for dessert. Reservations are a must, especially if it's a theater night. The place usually clears out around 15 minutes before... More

We visited Bin 228 as part of Hartford Restaurant Week. What a treat! Everything we had was superb. The scallops were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The salad was simply, but beautifully dressed. The gelato was rich but not cloyingly sweet. The wine had depth and the choices were plentiful. Our service was lovely and gracious. We will return!
