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.

The Bin 228 often has twine tastings and other small events that sell out quickly. I like to eat there tapas style, sampling several appetizers. The bar area is small, in fact the entire place is small so definitely call ahead. On theater nights the...More
