I know Thanksgiving Dinner prix fixe is hard to deliver, but this was off the mark for a "Michelin rated" site. Courses were dry and lacking flavor. Too many options maybe. Service took forever even though place was sparsely populated during our seating.
Ambiance was off due to drafty air coming from the back and staff didn't close off the curtain to block it.

Came running to Bin 5 when we heard they would be closing as of Nov. 28th. The eggplant lasagna is LIFE. Enjoyed the Porterhouse for 2 and all the delicious sides. My kids loved the Fregola with Clams and the Quesadilla. Dessert was just as perfect - peanut butter chocolate cake and the brownie. If we lived a little closer we'd be here more often, but we have no problem making the trip for the times that we can visit. Go now!!! It's so great to have a place that serves innovative dishes - we love being able to have something different since it seems most places serve typical Italian food. The menu is so varied that there's something for everyone. We love you Bin 5!

It’s always an enjoyable experience. The wine list is varied with many small producers from around the world. The food is exceptional in so many ways. We are repeat customers and Bin 5 is our “go-to” venue on Staten Island. We will be back again soon.

Lovely place to dine. The food options were varied and plentiful. Staff was friendly, attentive and welcoming. The main dining room feels a little crowded, which therefore makes it a tad noisy, but I am glad to see them doing well enough to be crowded. The venue used to have a wonderful, gorgeous outdoor option; now it’s just an attractive wooden box — some imaginative attention to that back area could make it a preferred option to the indoor space, as it was in the past. A really superior dining experience overall

We had heard of Bin5 from a few friends and finally had a chance to go recently. What an awesome little spot.
The food was amazing. The vibe was pretty chill. The outdoor seating area was had a heat lamp that made the seating out there cozy on a chilly night. And the wait staff was fantastic.
Would recommend 100% and will definitely be going back again.

For our very first time at Bin 5, we had an outstanding experience. The atmosphere is casual, but everyone there is dedicated to making the customers' time there a great one. The service people are obviously well-trained, knowledgeable, experienced, and courteous, but they are not intrusive or overly familiar. The food was simply great. My wife's red snapper and my grilled skirt steak were cooked perfectly, tasted great, and were accompanied by side dishes and ingredients that went well with the main part of the entree. The flatbread appetizer was an excellent surprise. It also was wonderfully tasty and, frankly, could also have been an entree. I loved the coconut flan! After a filling meal, it was a great light dessert to end the evening. We also enjoyed toasting our anniversary celebration with excellent glasses of prosecco. As you can tell, we thought it was worth the price and we would go back again without pause. Thank you, Bin 5!

So nice to be back here for dinner!!!! Upon entering greeted by all & welcoming us & our pick of table!!!! Chris saw us & already started to make our Mezcal Mules...OMG SO GOOD!!!! We usually get a bunch of appetizers because we can't decide what we want...and the Specials were amazing as well....and we ordered too much but took some HOME. Bin 5 is a GEM & so glad they are in our Neighborhood. I checked in on FB & surprised at how many haven't been here yet...WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR...From A-Z....very good. I'm limited on what I eat but always find something, YES VEGAN FRIENDLY. Make your rez now..BTW loved the Vinos Finos de Rioja!
Thank you!!!

Food was amazing! We sat outside on a lovely early fall day but the inside is very intimate and inviting too. We had the scallops appetizer. I had the grilled salmon. Husband had red snapper in a basil cream sauce. All fantastic. Really one of the best dining experiences we've had recently.

I went to dinner last night with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. We were welcomed, well-fed, and well taken care of and even though we were there for hours, we were never once made to feel rushed or unwanted. The food was delicious and plentiful and all the employees were polite, personable, and professional.
