“The food is wonderful”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Bin 228 is a nice gem in the city of Hartford. The food is alway perfect and the wine selection has never let us down. We often go there to get away from the corporate chains. It's just a relaxing atmosphere with an attentive staff.

“Ignored us! - Rude Staff - Avoid”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Took my fiance her for our anniversary....the Waitress took our drink order, then seemed miffed when we didn't orde alcohol (we were planning on order a ton of food and didn't want to fill up on drinks)

The rude waitress then proceeded to ignore me when I tried to get her attention to let her know we were ready to order, then took the food order of the people at the table next to us who came in after us, then ignored us for another 15mins.

The place was not busy either. 2 large parties just left and there were more than 10 tables open.

So after being ignored for 15 mins we had no choice but to go find another restaurant that wanted our business. SALLY's Black Eye was really awesome. Great food, good music, QUICK SERVICE and FRIENDLY STAFF.

Go there instead.
