Bis on Main
Bis is a classic restaurant, great food, great service and QUIET. So many restaurants now are too noisy.
The Bis food experience was a good one although a bit pricey. That is no big deal; good food is worth what it takes for the expertise and top ingredients to make a fine dining evening. The reason I won't go back, though, is that I was sitting elbow to elbow with my friend and could not hear her. This was not a Friday or Saturday night that tends to be a bit more exuberant, and I do not have a hearing problem. It was noise crashing off walls and the ceiling into the senses that overwhelmed what would have been an excellent experience. Bis is off my list for dinner; lunch, maybe.
Excellent and always consistent. Bis has a nice line up of new, fresh and seasonal dishes across the menu and execute them well. Quiet so you can have a relaxed conversation. Highly recommend.
The Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly.
The menu is well diversified with with Seasonal fish and vegetables.
The portions were very generous .
This was our 2nd date night at Bis on Main. Service, food quality, and comfort brings us back! We actually like sitting at the bar and eating our dinner there.
Great food and superior service. Party of five and everyone loved their meal
Pure joy as always!
Great venue for a special anniversary. Everything met our expectations.
Great place for dinner or lunch! I absolutely love their food and their service! My mom is vegan and they prepared a fabulous lunch for her and I enjoyed my Kobe burger :)
Bis delivers again!! Always our go-to spot for dinner. Never disappointed. The rack of lamb was sublime as was the halibut and salmon. We make sure to bring all of our out of town guests here for a fabulous dinner!
I have celebrated occasions, entertained clients and caught up with dear friends and Bis always exceeds. They are a gem.
Excellent in all ways ... as always
Bid on Main is one of our favorites in Bellevue if you want elegant dining and delicious food!
Best cod I’ve ever had! Great, attentive service!
Food was good but not amazing. Service was ok. We each ordered salads and they brought them out at completely different times which was weird. Food was good wand dessert was very good. Lighting inside was VERY bright and it was pretty loud. Definitely better places in the area to go.
Joe keeps this restaurant special as always - such a treat every time!
ALWAYS, IT IS A PLEASURE TO DINE AT BIS ON MAIN - JOE IS ALWAYS INVITING, REGARDFUL AND I APPRECIATE HOW THOUGHT-FULL THE ATTENDANTS ARE WITH US!
The food and service were excellent! I highly recommend the halibut.
My wife visited the restaurant a month ago and said the scallops were the best she had ever enjoyed. We decided to have a birthday dinner there on this visit. The chef made a scallop dish for my wife about as enjoyable as the last one. Excellent repeat performance. Thank you.
The food was delicious, the ambiance delightful, but the server was a bit snooty and her smile was appeared forced. If we come back, we’d likely ask to not be seated in her section
Excellent service and food. Looking foward to next time
One of our favorite go to spots! Consistently delicious!
Thank you, Joe, for this lovely, white table clothed icon in the middle of our busy city...and for richard!
Lovely, quiet dinner for three in one of back dining rooms...perfect for conversation and delicious food.
Dinner was absolutely delicious. The service was top notch.
It did get a bit loud once the area we were in was full.
We will definitely be back the next time we’re in the area.
The service at Bis was outstanding but the food was just good, nothing stood out and it was fairly expensive. The noise level was high!
The server was so weird too much talking too much touching us & keeps asking as everything is good everything thing is fine how was the food & so on even after we paid & got up & planning to leave come back with touching our shoulders & got more questions or us ... very uncomfortable & weird..
Reservations was June 17 under Samar for Nagla’s Bday
Love Bis!! Always great food and love that it is local-best place on the Eastside!!
It took over 30 minutes to get our appetizer and over an hour and half to get our main entrees. I would understand if its a restaurant that serves a lot of people but this was a small restaurant and there were only a few tables being used. Once they gave us our check they were very fast at charging my card though...Ridiculous!! The food was bland we got the Cod. Barely any flavor and is something I could make myself. Nothing special worth paying that much.
Love this restaurant !
Excellent place as always. Enjoyed the Dry Rub New York steak. Can’t ever go wrong here!
AS always, Bis on Main excels at everything it does. I just wish they would remodel the front dining room to get rid of the 1950's coach seating. I get seated with my wife at 90 degrees to me, so I'm talking to her left ear.While she's looking directly into the face of some woman at the adjacent table, so they end up staring at each other.
Other than that, wine list, menu, service, etc are all excellent. AGAIN.
Honestly, given its reputation and hefty price tag, I was disappointed.
We dined on a Tuesday evening and it wasn't very busy. While we were seated quickly, it seemed to take too long for our server to get back to us for our drink order, at which time we also ordered appetizers.
The drinks came out quickly enough, although not that quickly considering it was two glasses of champagne and a Scotch, neat.
Our server came back for our entree orders before the apps came out, which was fine, but then we waited.
Finally, food came out ... but the entrees. No sign of the appetizers we'd hoped to be nibbling on. Our server confessed that he'd forgotten to order them, but the entrees were ample enough that we were probably better off not stuffing ourselves to the gills.
He brought us a creme brulee as an "I'm sorry about the mix-up."
Three of the four of us have worked in restaurants so we know things happen, but at this type of high-end (and higher-priced) restaurant, they shouldn't.
Oh, and the food? It was good. Nothing that blew our socks off, but properly prepared. My wife raved about her diver scallops. My crab cake and mussels were tasty. Our son's duck breast was also tender and tasty. Just nothing as stellar as I thought it should have been for a $300+ dinner.
It’s my go to spot. The food is consistently delicious.
Greg was very good waiter. The food was prepared well and presentation was excellent.
Perhaps we were expecting more of a french bistro style experience but felt that the execution of the dishes lacked finesse and attention to detail. The service while by no means inattentive felt somewhat rushed - granted it was a busy Saturday night.
We had 7 in our party all like different foods. They met all our needs and more.
I also added that we were celebrating our anniversary when booking the reservation, never heard a peep, would have been nice. Server was not on point, was more engaged with the neighboring table, while we needed service. Expect more attentive service given the amount spent at the establishment. Food was great though!
Comfortable, great food, great service! Highly recommended.
Bis on Main is one of our favorite restaurants. We love the service, location and food. The crispy garlic chicken is one of the highlights on the menu. The menu varies enough to be interesting but the classics remain on the menu. I would highly recommend this as a date night location.
