I love this place! My husband and I usually go for dinner but this time I took my oldest son here as a treat for his birthday, just the two of us. He's 23. We both ordered the Kobe beef burgers and the truffle fries. It was so hard not to choose the specials though, everything sounded so delicious but I just their burger and I have been wanting it for a while now. You can't order it for dinner (although they have it in slider form in the bar in the evenings). Their truffle fries are unbelievable. Never ever had any as good anywhere else. Also their wines by the glass are terrific as is their iced tea - special blend. Lance our server did an excellent job as usual and it's nice when the wait staff recognizes you. I highly recommend it and I highly recommend you make reservations first!

the house salad was only lettuce and way too much salad dressing - limp lettuce
the blackened cod was not cooked enough and the seasoning was not appetizing. the bread pudding was too sweet

Delicious food, ample portions and excellent service! Valet parking is super easy easy at the rear of the building.

At first I questioned driving 30 miles for My brothers birthday dinner at Bis On Main, but after realizing how enjoyable it was, I wanted to go there for my birthday dinner as well. Not only is the food delicious and fairly priced, but you receive AMPLE PORTIONS!

At my brothers birthday dinner, the only difficulty I had was hearing everyone at our table (the restaurant was full and I am a little hard of hearing). For my birthday dinner I requested a quieter area and the staff happily provided us with a quiet table.

I was very happy with my dinner and overall experience at Bis On Main and am looking forward to going again!

For my wife's birthday, we enjoyed a lovely dinner with our friends at Bis. George is always exceptionally hospitable as is the wait staff, including Ryan. My wife ordered the duck breast and loved it. I ordered perhaps the best Bolognese i have had in years. I have not decided if the Bolognese at Bis was better or tied with a similar dish in Portland Maine. Suffice it was a real highlight.
We recommend Bis on Main for any occasion, or just a nice pleasant dinner or appetizer.

The table next to us was so loud I couldn't even hear my husband talk to me.
I thought the wait staff should have said something to the man who was so loud. When I got up to go to the restroom, I could hear him talking in there too.
It ruined my meal,

The food is phenomenal and honestly a pretty great bang for your buck (something I generally don't care about when fine dining).

Our waiter was pretty clumsy and the service didn't flow very well. The atmosphere was nice but very noisy, honestly it was incredibly hard to hear the person across from you unless you were both shouting.

I would never recommend BIS to a friend because it is poor value for the expense. We arrived at 6 pm sharp for our dinner on a Friday night and were immediately seated per our reservation. I ordered one of the specialties for the evening, a rib eye dish. My friend ordered the special Chilean sea bass. Soon after departing, our server returned with the news that they were "our of" the rib eye special, and offered something like veal stuffed with ham. I ordered the filet mignon off the menu in substitution.
Assuming the truth of the "out of" excuse, it was still very poor mismanagement to run out of a special by 6:15 pm on a Friday night. My friend really enjoyed the sea bass. My filet tasted like cardboard, it had no more flavor punch than the frozen eggplant parmigiana I buy from Costco for a meal at home. With one glass of wine each, the evening, including tip, came to $200.00, which borders on fraud. BIS is just milking its reputation, charging whatever the software/corporate execs in Bellevue will bear.

I absolutely love this place! The truffle fries are to die for and the service is outstanding. The owner greets everyone when you arrive and the waiters recognize you. (Maybe it's because I eat there quite a bit!) I've been going there for at least 8 years and I often see the same wait staff which is unusual these days. It's old-fashioned great upscale service which I love and wonderful food with a local flair which I also love! Be sure and make reservations, they are always full. They even have free valet parking in the back.
