Had a late dinner after lolla. Food was good. Trout excellent. Oysters fresh. Wines and cheese plate surprisingly just good. Happy we went.

I must commend the bar and Jimmy who has worked there since the beginning of (their) time. He knows his stuff and is just so hospitable. However, the quality of the food is just going down and down. And apart from the bar and the retail wine store (who are rather good), I just can't quite understand the wait staff... More

Way too slow service for breakfast before a work day. Also not very friendly. But the food and the coffee were good.

Everything here was delicious!!...we dined on steamed mussels and persian feta. The wine/beer selection is to die for. Ended out the meal with their "creme brulee of the day" which happened to be dark chocolate & caramel. I would go here again and again!!

I came to Chicago several years ago with a girlfriend and she took me here. I've been to Chicago two times since and I keep coming back. Thirty two cheese and 45 wines and a menu just right for the weary tracker. The menu was user friendly with information regarding food pairing. If you like wine and cheese (and an... More

We tried a Spanish and south African red wine. Both excellent. Meatballs, cheese flight (cheddar), monk fish were all memorable. Service was great and presentation was artful. To bad we don't have one in Macon. Rats.

Attended a reception/dinner in the loft. The bartenders were super knowledgeable about the wines that were selected for service and very attentive. I had a monkfish entrée that was perfect. Perfectly cooked and sauced, it was a great dish. I would love to come back for a regular dinner and explore the full range of wine options and dinner choices.

I invited our business delegates and people to join me for the lunch @ BIN 36. Opps! I realized that I had a mistake with my choice on BIN 36. We were waiting for our lunch over 45 minutes. My God! Results? We got average salads that you could get one similar on a street. Do not bring your business... More
