The patio setting for our evening together was nice, the warm weather, people watching all added to the lovely meal that we shared.
The onion soup starter and the seafood tart were all very tasty. The salmon was well done and nicely presented, the sticky rice with the salmon was very tasty. Good selection of wine and mixed drinks finished off a very nice evening. No room for dessert.
The wait staff are professional and not at all intrusive which allowed the patrons a relaxed time to dine and socialize.
Would we visit again- absolutely!! Recommend reservations be made in advance as the Bin 23 is rather small, especially for evening dining. Limited lunch time dining hours.

We are in Canada from England visiting friends and it was our friend Brian's birthday dinner. The meal and service were fantastic. The ribs were the best I have had and everyone there (7 of us) were so complimentary about their meal. I would recommend it highly.

My girlfriend and I had lunch on the patio while visiting Guelph one afternoon. It was a beautiful day and the b patio was like a french bistro. The servers are very knowledgable about the wines and menu. The chefs look like they are 12 years old but boy do they know their stuff. We decided to share the House Made Brown Butter Pate, Balsamic Fig Jam and the Lobster Tart. Both were melt in your mouth delicious and very flavorable. The portions were definitely large enough for two and we vowed we would be back next time in town. Recommend highly~~~

Dinner in a great location- downtown old Guelph.Seated on the front patio watching the people traffic. Service was attentive but never intrusive.
Starters were perfectly cooked calamari and and a home smoked trout on a potato galette. We could have asked for the calamari as a main and been very happy!
Mains were perfectly cooked pickerel ( Walleye for our friends south of the border) - everyone had the same - we love pickerel.
To finish the ladies had a velvety crime brûlée and a wild blueberry and goat cheese tart which was as good as advertised.
Wine list was well balanced and interesting with some choices not regularly seen in the wine store - not wildly expensive for Ontario.
Bin 23 isn't inexpensive but it's worth every penny. One of our favourite "go to" places.

We have been to Bin many times and have always enjoyed it. It is a great Restuarant for special occasions. We celebrated our anniversary and had a great meal. The staff is always attentive, friendly and informative regarding menu and wine options.
The menu is creative and unique and with nice fish and meat options.
