The food was quite good. The 'blackened' swordfish had the right type of blackened seasoning, but was not smothered in it so much that you lost the fish (which many places do). The service was competent, an improvement over our last visit. The wines experience...More

What a cute little spot this is! Right across the street from Theaterworks, it couldn't be more convenient for a light supper before enjoying the theater. The menu is nicely designed with lots of sharable plates, bruschetta, salads and panini. Only a few entrees are...More

An odd and off-putting entrance; don’t worry about it. Small, intimate setting. Very delicious small plates (the fig-and prosciutto bruschetta was excellent) Nice by-the-glass wine selection; the pours were a bit small for the price. The staff was outstanding in accommodating our impromptu flight tasting....More

Bin 228 has a nice variety of tasty and affordable small plates - like crab cakes, pate, paninis and brischetta. I enjoyed the crab cake and the pulled pork panini. There were some reasonably priced local beers on tap and a nice variety of wines...More

I sometimes walk into Bin 228 by myself for happy hour and it's always a great visit. The Fig and Proscuitto panini is delicious. Just the right amount of sweet and salty. And even the pasta salad that comes as a side is delicious. I...More

Bin 228 has an odd menu. Heavy on shared appetizers, soups, salads and panini with a single special soup and entree every day. Since I had skipped lunch I was famished and ordered the halibut special. A bit pricey at $27 - everything else was...More

Menu is creative and food was very good. Had the Mahi Taco's with mango salsa and it was excellent. Wait staff are friendly and efficient. Nice atmosphere and a good place for a casual business conversation. Pleasant place and not pretentious.

We went for restaurant week.The fixed menu looked really appealing. First courses of mushroom ravioli and a fonduta were delicious. But the write up said the fonduta was with asparagus - it came with one skinny limp piece. Then we had to wait at least...More
