Gotta love Gotham!! The food and the staff are amazing. Now other reviewers complain about the prices -- here's a tip -- sit on the lounge side. They have a smaller lounge menu but the prices are ridiculously cheap. They have this "Seafood Sampler" for $16!! You get ahi tune, calamari, crab cakes, one prawn and smoked salmon all with respective sauces. It's enough for a meal for one oR a sharing dish for 2 or 3. Also try the mini kebabs. $14 or $15 and you get a 5-6 oz filet cut on a kebab
I often go with my girlfriend and we eat ther for less than $40 BUCKS!! And we leave full!! Plus If you sit at the bar -- the bartenders are entertaining. Look for "boozy" that's what his nametag says. You'll love the place!!

This place almost never fails to deliver a phenomenal meal. I can only recall 1 mediocre dish over the years I've been dining here. But as many others have commented the ambience may not be outstanding but that's their concept small dishes, small rooms. My only complaint is I can never eat their on weekends unless i get there at 5pm. But hey that's just because everyone else knows what a great menu Bin offers

I just read the other reviews about Wild Rice and gotta ask where were you dining? Because that does not sound like Wild Rice at all. Wild Rice is one of my favorite restaurants in town -- the chef creates amazing dishes and they have a really good crew there. My girlfriend and I love it there!
I cannot believe the criticisms that is being doled out here. I've gotta say there are a lot of inaccuracies in the reviews. 1st of all 'bottomless' -- I remember that tasting menu last summer --- and it was a TASTING MENU not a 3 course dinner. And it was only $15 dollars (not $25). That being said -- while i do not believe that it was Wild Rice's best offering - still for $15 it was a worthwhile deal.
And Morgan -- may I make a suggestion -- open up to new experiences. Wild Rice is not trying to be typical Chinese food -- its modern fusion. And if your comment about the chicken in sweet and sour sauce is reference to their Kung Po Chicken in the yellow bean sauce -- holy crap that dish is phenemonal! I'm addicted and have to get my fix at least twice a month.
Anyway -- i'm not saying that it's not possible that Wild Rice was not on their top game the nights that you went in. But I would suggest taking another chance.I go out to a lot of restaurants, and a rule that I have picked up is "give restaurants at least two chances, before you right them off, because everyone (or place) can have an off night"
See you around town!!
