We chose to visit Bin 26 as it was close to our hotel and the menu concept really appealed. The welcome was friendly enough but somewhat superficial and didn't feel that once we sat down, the staff were that interested. The food itself was good but the quantities didn't really justify the cost. What did shock us was per glass... More

Ate here on Saturday evening, a return visit, all be it about a five year gap! A busy, vibrant restaurant, excellent for wines, somewhat puzzled by the pricing of some meals, ordered a pasta dish and were to.d by our waitress that this was for a small portion and for a larger dish the price would be be double!

My group and I were wandering through Boston looking for a meal on a business trip. We saw the menu outside Bin 26, and it looked excellent. The restaurant was slow a the time so we popped in to see if they could seat us, and they did. The food was exceptional. Every bite I had was delicious, and the... More

Friendly staff honoured our reservation and request fir a window seat. Nice menu with lots of options. Wine served in dainty crafes. All going well until we had our second course, scallops on a bed of tagliatella. The sauce can only be described as a light brown onion gravy and so looked unappetising, and drowned the scallops. I would still... More

My friend and I met at Bin Enoteca before an early evening meeting. We sat at the window watching the strollers ambling by on Charles Street. We split a flight of bubbly wines: each better than the last, especially the server's recommendation. The salumeria plate was more than enough for us to share for a light supper, accompanied by fresh... More

We were walking on Charles Street during a recent stay in Boston, and wanted to get lunch. We came upon Bin 26 Enoteca and decided to give it a try. We were brilliant in doing so. By far, one of the best lunch places we ate at during our stay. The menu selections were just right, and the food was... More

We had ages to spare and dropped in here - fantastic. Great wine, good lunch-sized portions (i.e. Not so huge you need to sleep afterwards) and great staff.

Dropped in here whilst passing on a wander round Boston, the location is great, the bathrooms clean but the restaurant is badly let down by the moody waitresses who didn't want to be their on a Sunday afternoon. A very poor impression on entry, the food is Ok but overprised for what it is.

The wine list is extensive, but expensive. Several small plates were very good--the Spaghetti with Duck Ragu was phenomenal.

My husband and I have come here multiple times, and so we looked forward to an excellent glass of wine and a well cooked meal. We've taken friends, recommended the restaurant to others -- we were fans! However, we are now oddly and supremely disappointed. My wine was lovely, our salads and appetizers were good (although the server got my... More

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
