Love the forgotten way to treat someone when dining. The service from the first step in to the last step out is outstanding. The food is delicious & nice proportioned. Thank you!

We were a group of six out having our yearly Christmas lunch and It was a disappointment to say the least. Nobody liked their meal. Mine probably would have been delicious if it hadn’t been burned on the bottom and over cooked. (Croque Monsieur) The mushroom bisque was just ok, the Sal’s salad was bland. I was expecting so much better. We won’t be back.

I am always impressed when I go back to Bis and the food and service is even better than I had remembered -- don't know what other Seattle-area restaurant I can say that about!

Always one of my favorites in downtown Bellevue.
Great service and great food is always a given.
If there is one thing that can be improved, it would be the interior decor. It has been the same for years.

It never fails! Bis on main is amazing. no matter what criteria you choose, food, menu, wine list, service etc. this place is day in and day out AMAZING. We go here about once a month, and they keep getting better. Kristen is the most amazing of wait staff; supremely professional but FUN! She should be given a 1000% raise. Wine good, food good. What else do you need to know??

We had an early dinner beginning when the restaurant was not busy. It took longer than it should have to get drinks ordered. Two of us ordered the halibut special, which was overcooked and dry. An hour into our dinner (which took more than two hours) the room had become busy and very noisy, and it was hard to hold a conversation with our friends.

In summary, slow service, overcooked fish, and loud--not something I can recommend.

Generous portions, very nice plate presentation! It's gracious, white tablecloth service, and the valet parking is great! Hard to find the quieter locations to be able to have conversations when it's just ladies. Overall, consistently great menu. Very accommodating on a substitution for a gluten free side. Busy on a Monday night~always good to see!

Bis on Main has always delivered exceptional food, service and ambiance, and we’ve been dining there for over 10 years! Every dinner and lunch has been consistently delicious, the wait staff is some of the best in the industry, and we really Iike the smaller size of the dining rooms, helps to keep noise levels down. Joe has done a phenomenal job maintaining such a high level of restaurant experience year after year.

Love Bis on Main. I had the Nicoise Salad and it was the best I've ever had. Huge slices of raw ahi tuna, and the eggs cooked perfectly - still soft in the center, and the dressing was delicious. Great ambience, and excellent service. Highly recommend.

We were looking for an outstanding meal for a special occasion. The food was good, but not elevated.
The fried brussel sprouts were too sweet. The pork shank was tender and flavorful. The restaurant was very busy and service was understandably slow. We didn't mind the leisurely pace however our server never stopped by to ask if how our meal was or to offer a second glass of wine. It was loud in the dining area and difficult to hold a conversation. I skipped the birthday dessert -by then I was more than ready to leave.

One of our favorites in the Seattle/Bellevue area. Food is consistently excellent and they have a very fine wine cellar that should please all tastes. Their main course selections allow for varying tastes in foods. You're not dining at a steakhouse, a seafood restaurant or a particular type of ethnic restaurant as their menu choices provide an excellent selection in multiple areas. All are well prepared and served with well thought out complimentary accompaniments. The staff is very attentive but not intrusive. Never feel pressured to "turn the table."

Always a favorite of ours as others come and go!

We had the halibut special and duck. It was very good. The duck was our favorite for the night. We had a bottle of wine. We like the place. It is $150-200 dining.

It’s a lovely, quaint restaurant but I didn’t get that warm and fuzzy feeling from the host and the waiter was very experienced but too busy to provide attentive service. We waited a long time to order, then felt rushed. Food was very good but would’ve loved a little more variety and lighter options. Good just not special.

Bis never disappoints.
Food was exquisite, both in presentation and fabulous taste. I had the mushroom braised Duck Breast which was out of this world. My companion raved about her Seared Sea Scallops and “licked” the platter clean!
Service was excellent, as always. The extremely seasoned waitstaff is there to serve.
My only regret with Bis is the noise level is so high it’s very hard to have a conversation without leaning in and shouting.
Otherwise, love the place!

Fantastic food as always and the host/owner greets you by name-maybe it's because I've been there a lot :) Love their wine selection by the glass as my husband is not a big wine fan and I am. Such a great place to eat! Be sure and make reservations as they are always busy!
