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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

And 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.

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.

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!

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.
