Overall, a good experience with good food and wine. One complaint - between courses, I switched from white to red wine. However, the waiter used the same glass for both. He should have brought a new glass for the red wine. Otherwise, a nice dining experience.

One of the best wine lists in Boston. The bruschetta was the best I’ve had in awhile and the pasta was on point.

Very impressed with their service as well. 100% will be going back.

Food was better than usual which is a plus but we were forced to book at 5:30 pm on open table b/c 6 pm was full yet empty seats remained all around us
Service was friendly but desultory
The noise level from the sound system made conversation almost impossible

Three of us met for a late afternoon glass of wine and cheese and other nibbles. We each had delicious wine and delicious accompaniments. Our servers were gracious, and we had a lovely two hours of chatting. We were made to feel completely welcome, even not eating much. It was a quiet bubble of hospitality and friendship gracefully arranged by the staff.

We had two meals at Bin 26 last week and thoroughly enjoyed both. Service was excellent and food delicious. We would definitely go back when next in Boston.

Good wine selection, and we enjoyed what we ordered for both food and wine. Smaller tapas-sized plates so overall bill can add up in price, but overall an enjoyable restaurant.

Veal chop was very disappointing. Very soggy. Flavor was flat. Way overpriced. Bolognese was not too flavorful and small portion for the dinner size. We were also told a half carafe for the type of wine we wanted was cheaper than 2 glasses which ended up being untrue. Will not return.

Overall - I wouldn't go back. The food was decent but overpriced. I asked for a wine recommendation and the waiter recommended a $42 dollar GLASS of wine (which is insane, I'm in my 20s). Also, the waiter seemed to rush us a bit, which was odd given there was no one there. The best part about this place is the ambiance is nice and relaxing, but the food/wine is really nothing to write home about.

Good food - we had a couple of salads and several pasta dishes - the salads were light while the pasta tasted freshly made with lovely sauces. Meatballs were light and tasty, gnocchi was just the right amount of chewy and flavorful but chicken and green beans didn't taste very fresh. Everyone was also a bit on the salty side (as is the case with many nice restaurants). The wine selection by the glass was also great, as was the option of small tasting pours (100 mL vs. standard 250 mL glass), although their champagne/sparkling wine by the glass selection could have been better (only a prosecco and two cavas). Overall though, I'd go back for the pasta alone. Service was also very attentive and friendly.

We have been to the Bin a few times and went this weekend after a movie. Pleasantly reminded that we have a very good restaurant across the Common from the Movie theater. My Salmon main was excellent and the others in our party enjoyed their dinner as well.
The Bin 26 House red a Cabernet/Merlot blend was excellent at $ 40 bottle as well.
All Good.

Quiet brunch spot. Tasty food. Service was a bit spotty but not my first time service is usually excellent so chalk it up to a one time event.

We had never been and all the other restaurants near them were booked, so we went for it! Food was decent. Waiter was new, but knowledgeable. Bench seats were not terribly comfortable, but they were funky/artsy. An intimate dining experience. Next time we might just sit at the bar!

I really love this place for a fun, casual night out and visit regularly. A fantastic wine selection, a varied and creative menu and a friendly and knowledgable staff make for a consistently enjoyable evening. On several occasions we've opted for a number of small plates to share (think tapas). On others, we've select from their interesting selection of entrees. We've always been extremely satisfied!

Lovely restaurant. Food was delicious and the wine as well.
Service was ok but flat and a little slow even though the restaurant was not busy
