Our server was very nice and informative. It was educational and entertaining to try to different wine flights at our table. The cheese plate is very good however there isn't much in the way of vegetarian options.

I agree with Michael Z. Send a note to the restaurant. TripAdvisor won't let me post their email hyperlink, but it's info at their domain name...who knew!) Can't say enough about Bin36.
