The steak salad is great for lunch and dinner. My husband is a fan of the paninis. The waitress can be a little distant - she's there to serve you but doesn't take much interest in you. We have always sat in the front so haven't had to wait to be served and the food has always been good and received in a timely manner. I have heard that Sunday brunch is good too but we haven't tried it.

We recently ate dinner at Bin 119, a special multi-course Spanish meal with Spanish wine pairings. The meal was simply outstanding and the wines were good enough that we ordered a couple of them. Bin 119 is starting to have these special dinners with wine and we're looking forward to the next one on January 27. Bin 119 is one of our favorite restaurants in Billings and we've always enjoyed our meals there but this one was really special.

The restaurant is located in the heart of downtown billings. Smaller than average dinning room. Excellent menu, food and service. Never had a bad app meal or dessert. We always order all 3 when we go. As a professional cook I can be very critical towards restaurants and quality of food. This place never disappoints. We tip the bar tenders cooks and waitress very well everytime we go. With so many mismanaged restaurants with below average food out there I'm glad we found this place.

Dinner tonight was just OK. Malbec that we ordered was out, we took the second choice as offered by our server. The bruschetta was good, although the mozzarella cheese was a lunch cheese sliced strip rather than a fresh cheese ball.
The Panko breaded shrimp were nice, with six large shrimp being served. Steak salad was plentiful. The Crispy Fried Duck, however, was a disappointment. The breading was greasy, as if not being drained properly after being fried.
Desert was creme brulee (curdled or chunky, not custardy constincency) and) and blood orange cheese cake (more like a boxed orange pudding cake).
Dinner was OK. Nothing spectacular, but nothing that would say "don't come back"
They have a great location, with a very warm and rich setting, but the food just doesn't work. Wine list is very good, with some unique vintages being offered.
Servers were polite, but again, not great.

We have never had a bad meal at Bin 119.

There are good steaks, fish, and pasta. An intimate restaurant, we prefer the booths to the bistro tables. The wine list is more than adequate and the staff is friendly providing excellent service.
