So my first impression of this place was brutally terrible. If it wasn't Easter Sunday I would have ABSOLUTELY walked out. Maybe I even should have and gone home. The blond hostess was so unbelievably rude that it blew my mind. We made a reservation and expected to be treated like everybody else but when we arrived we were put... More

The coziet place we went on vacation for dinner. While the majority of dishes seemed to be geared towards the vegetarian palate, we enjoyed every bite! Us 4 girls shared everything, and the ricotta gundi and butter nut squash risotto were amazing. As well as the roasted eggplant and the beet salad. Impeccable service. A bit pricey but worth it!

I went here with some friends: we divided 2 starters, I took a hamburger, a beer and I shared a dessert with a friend...and we paid more than 40$ each. The quality was ok, but couldn't justify that price; and there wasn't a great choice of dishes. Moreover the waiter made a mistake with our order. I can't recommend this... More

Not a horrible experience but not overly memorable. Castelvetrano Olives were nice and the accompanying wine was decent though not a great value. Service was solid and they accomodated us quickly.

Service was horrible, food was worse. The waitress went a bit crazy (seriously) when we didn't want to order our entire meal at once (we hate to be rushed). Ended up with manager serving us, but we were the ones left feeling tense and not appreciated. If the food had been great, I would be writing a different review. It... More

We had a great time at Bin 38. Out of the 3 restaurant/wine bars we visited during our short visit, this was definitely our favorite. Our waiter was well informed and the ambiance added to the whole experience. We were able to enjoy the fire pit while eating our dinner. Most definitely would return to Bin 38 out on our... More

I had a friend in from out of town and so we decided to go here for brunch and it was amazing! The bottomless mimosas were fantastic, the staff was friendly and the food was delicious. If you can, make sure you sit outside. The patio was covered and heated and really cozy. Overall it was a great place to... More

The tables were uncomfortable as you really are sitting on bar type stools. The food was okay but the choices very limited...the wine list on the other hand is endless...

We didn't eat here, but did stop for an after dinner glass of wine. Bartender was very helpful and knowledgeable about wine. We enjoyed our glass sitting out back by the fire. Very nice atmosphere.
