“Bin 46 is everything you want in a wine bar”

Bin 46 Wine Bar + Restaurant
Ranked #28 of 292 Restaurants in Longmont
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 July 2016 via mobile

We live in Fort Collins where we had a wonderful jazz bar/restaurant named Jay's Bistro for many years. New ownership has reduced Jay's to a cookie cutter bar/restaurant.

We are wine nuts, but there's little on offer in Fort Fun except beer, beer, beer. So we were delighted to find Bin 36 in Longmont. We came down for the Jazz Fest and ended up there after reading umpteen Yelp reviews that gave Bin 36 very high marks.

The wine we had was superb and we plan on returning to taste more. We didn't eat there but the servings we saw were heavy on design but low on food. In other words: Big plate/small food.

Thank Kate F

Have been here a couple times now. The food is excellent and that have a very nice wine program. Have been lucky enough to visit when they had a local songwriter/guitar player performing on the patio. Great vibe and the service has always been excellent! We'll be back!

This place has lovely ambiance, a great patio with a fire pit, twinkly lights, and interesting people (and pet) watching. We could have sat there all evening.

We did order food, but I started with a "French Margarita" which was not good- don't get it. It is a strange combo of flavors, and I can't even describe it. To eat, we had the basilico flat bread, which was okay, but the chicken was dry and flavors were kind of bland. Next, we had chorizo mussels. These were also "okay", mostly because the chorizo was not the dried chorizo type but the greasy kind, so the broth was a bit greasy and not spicy enough for me (also, the mussels were very small). I realize we are in Colorado, so my expectations are not unreasonable, but it is possible to get good mussels in Colorado (JAX Fish House). Finally, we had the smoked salmon duo. That was great! The salmon tasted fresh, and the dill crème was super delicious.

In the end, the food is a bit above average but not super interesting or inventive. I will try other things on the menu next time. Also, the waitress did not know much about the menu (drinks or otherwise) and couldn't direct us to their best dishes. Come here for the patio and its ambiance.

First time at Bin 46 and were very pleased with our meals and drinks. When back in the area we plan to visit the restuarant again.

Hopefully, Longmont has enough patrons who are a bit tired of burgers, pizza and burritos and support this place. The tapas are very good and the atmosphere is relaxing, no hurrying you out here. Pretty good wine list although a few more reds would be nice. We've visited three times in the past couple of weeks and have enjoyed each visit. Keep up the good work Candy.
