I love Bin23. I try to go as often as I can. I've never had a bad meal here. The service is fantastic, the food is amazing and the owner always makes it a point to come over and say hi. Not to mention his amazing wine cellar.

Wonderful restaurant except don't sit in the front room. The noise from the kitchen was very loud. Wish we'd sat at the back.

Fantastic lunch with friends. We had the cod, cheese on sourdough and chicken club. We all enjoyed our entrees and the sides were excellent as well ....onion soup and soup of the day especially good. The gherkin, olive garnish was a nice touch. We had the Malbac house wine and we all enjoyed it. The atmosphere is quiet, quaint and... More

Our initial intention on this Monday night was to head for La Cucina, which happened to be closed. So we decided to settle on Bin 23, which sounded interesting. Upon arrival, the server, after checking with the kitchen, informed us that we might have up to a 40-minute wait because of how busy they were right at that moment. This... More

A small little restaurant, Bin23 is located in an older building in downtown Guelph. Had a great lunch with my daughter. The wild mushroom soup was quite tasty. The chicken bacon club as well as the Brie and prosciutto sandwiches were excellent. The accompanying Caesar salad was equally good. Service and ambiance were very good, all at a very reasonable...

Tiny bistro with interesting but somewhat unevenly executed menu. Goat cheese sandwich with tomato and bacon on sourdough sounded good, but had way too much goat cheese. A bit overwhelming and the sandwich was very hard to eat as the cheese had made the bread quite soggy and was dripping out from all sides. Soup of the day, tomato spinach... More

We have eaten here on several occasions and usually enjoy our meals. Last time I was dissatisfied with my choice, but will return when the menu changes. Pleasant atmosphere with god friendly service.

Visited this restaurant with my partner and family. Huge thanks to Gus and his team. Attentive and responsive team. Great customer service but even better food. The beef steak is the best I've ever had and i have been to a few Michelin star restaurants. The creme brulee was a work of art. I can't praise this place highly enough.... More

I went here with my partner and some friends (on friends recommendation) having been told it is good. Well I wasn't disappointed. I had the pate and chutney starter, steak and gravy main and a unpronounceable dessert. All three courses were amazing.

A cozy place for our 5 person party to celebrate a birthday - mine! The restaurant is small but I like that better sometimes than the loud cafeteria-style feel of a larger place. The decor is dark and modern. Scallops, duck and rainbow trout were chosen by our family. I had the lamb - excellent! They gave me a nice... More
