I debated whether the food should be a 4 or a 5 and only marked it down a small notch (if there was a 4.7 that would have been my choice, because of just small sauce execution details. The portions, presentation, flavors with the fish dishes we had did not disappoint. Classical French style without gimmicks. The restaurant is well designed for conversation, the service attentive and perfectly timed.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about our visitEverything about our visit to Bistro Bis was exzcellent.

The food is always good with a variety of menu options. The manager provides you with a warm reception and ensures the service is good. The only downside is that it takes a while for the food (usually there for more than an hour at lunch. That does not keep me from going back. The seafood dishes and mussels are always exceptional.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go to Bis every few months.We go to Bis every few months. We always ask for a table in Steve's section. He is a first class waiter, although the wait staff is generallyeexcellent.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food, outstanding serviceMy girlfriend thought the Lobster Bisque was almost as good as Dominique's used to serve. My cassoulet, selected on the waiter's recommendation, was a tasty and hearty beginning. She got the lamb shank and I the pork chop. Both were delicious. Each of the several glasses of wine we tried were good. We ended with a shared apple tart that almost caused us to duel with our forks.
Service was friendly and attentive with helpful information and suggestions about the menu.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBistro B never disappoints!Bistro B never disappoints!

Bartender Matt knew exactly what we needed.
Waitstaff was fantastic - kept the glasses full and the food was presented at an appropriate pace. Will definitely return on every visit to DC......3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food options during RestaurantThe food options during Restaurant Week (something I wasn't aware of when booking) were quite varied and made for a nice, although larger than anticipated, lunch offering. The only difficulty came with a substantial delay in getting the dessert, making a business lunch suddenly awkward in lasting too long. The server was obviously concerned and tried to make amends but it was difficult.2/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCharcuterie plate outstandingCharcuterie plate outstanding and huge! A wonderful value and excellent selection of meats and pates. A great location near Union Station if you want a nice, non-foodcourt, non-chain, and actually gourmet experience before catching a train.1/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
