“Bin is one of the best in Chapel Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We ate here twice since visiting Chapel Hill. The prices are definitely not cheap but the food is OUTSTANDING. My husband and I shared a bone in ribeye that was huge, we couldn't even finish it but it was terrific. The bar scene was very buzzy, which we enjoyed.

“Poor Service and Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Service was very poor and food was below average.
Prices are out of line with quality of food and services reference restaurant gives.
Have eaten in two star restaurants that were much better than this restaurant which has a three star AAA rating.

“Good Business Meeting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

Party of 8 needed privacy and Bin 54 delivered. Service was excellent and we were allowed to conduct business without intrusion. Private room with large door that blocked the noise of the restaurant.
Plus:
Privacy, Upscale, Good Service, Good wine prices
Negative:
Duck was fair at best with breast ok but leg/thigh very dry and tough.
Somewhat slow
20% gratuity for party of 8. tip was $120

I would opt for Ruth's Chris rather than Bin 54 but a good change of pace near UNC

“the back room is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

We went to Bin 54 as a group of 7 and sat in the private dining room, which was also a wine storage unit....it was AMAZING. It felt luxurious and like the highest quality food and service we'd ever experienced. We were able to peek into the kitchen from our room and watch the chefs cook while also having a private sommelier to select wine for each course. If you have the money to spend, this place should not be missed.
