Nice place for a glass of wine

Nice place for a glass of wine but the food was uninspiring. Have a drink and move on as there is so many choice around there.

We went around 5 P.M. for dinner and we had the place to ourselves for the first half hour. Staff was very nice, the wine was amazing and the food great. My wife got a deal on line and it was so worth it. We will be back in Chicago this year and planning on going back to Bin 36.

I ate here with my sister. We were looking for a place to have a light dinner with some drinks to prepare for a following late night out. I loved the atmosphere and open concept of the place. We ordered a variety of cheeses and pommes de frites and dip. I ordered a flight of light whites and my sister... More

We went to a going away party for Bin. It temporarily closed until March/April of 2015. It will be under new ownership at a new location in the city. We have enjoyed many meals there in the past 4 years and I have learned a great deal about wine. I expect the experience to be even better under the new... More

Now let me start with the good. The squash soup was phenomenal. The bacon in it awesome. For main I ordered the monkfish. Everything about the dish was really good except the fish itself. It was a overcooked and tough. In my experience this is unusual for monkfish. My compadre had the same problem with their trout too so I... More

This was the second time we ate here when visiting Chicago. Both times we have gotten a mix of wine flights and cheese flights and usually one other menu item. We love the ordering options, and being able to explore many tastes in one sitting. The wine has always been gold as well as whatever food we've ordered. Just had... More

If you are looking for a spot to sample a few new wines and enjoy some well-crafted small plates, this is the place to go.

Went there during my recent overnight to Chicago. Wanted a light meal and a little wine. This fit the bill perfectly. Good wine choices and well thought out wine flights. They have a wide array of well prepared good tasting small plates. Some would say it is expensive but I find it average priced for a good restaurant in a... More

this place is under-noticed. If you are a cheese fan - this is a must on your list - even between meals. I recommend the flight of your choice (they have so many great ones - its a difficult choice), cheese selection - and follow with desert (I had a mousse with a mango coulee that was wonderful). The wine... More

This is a great place for wine & cheese flights. We enjoyed sampling two different cheese flights and a hummus appetizer. We had two children with us and they loved sampling all the cheeses. I was surprised to find they had a children's menu, but we didn't even use it. This was my 2nd visit to Bin 36 and I've... More
