Celebrated my husband birthday last night. It was not as busy due to the outbreak, but the staff and service was awesome. The food as usual was amazing. After dinner we heard they were closing all bar and restaurants. So people order out if you can. Their staff work really hard to make your night special.

Wonderful as always! Had the crab cakes and rice & chicken soup - both delicious. Small lunch crowd due to Covid-19 concerns.

Fantastic restaurant! Staff and food are exquisite. This is one of our favorite places. It's especially important to support your local restaurants right now. The staff and owner treat you like family and recognize you when you come in. Love this place! Everything they make is wonderful but my favorite are the truffle fries! The best I've had anywhere! And believe me I've tried many places.

Great place for lunch! Quiet and classy. I had the quiche and salad. The quiche was the best I've ever had! I'd recommend organic lettuce. Better tasting lettuce would have made this a perfect meal! Also, warming the bread would be really nice. Waitress was great!

Service was terrible. We sat at the table for over 10 minutes before we were acknowledged. Waiter would leave before we had a chance to complete our order. The food was cold, small portions, not very imaginitive.

Everything was perfect only this one small thing; never serve black quinoa. I had a wonderful vegan dish with it and it covered my teeth, was difficult to remove....just felt like NOT the right thing to happen when you're out to dinner! Everything else was wonderful!

The food was excellent but I guess they were very busy with Valentines day and we have to return my wife’s meat as it wasn’t cooked well and service was spotty. But we like it and for sure will recommend

First time at BIS Had reservations for 5:30 Sat the day after Valentines. Was surprised that they had a limited menu compared to what was showing online. The waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly.
We arrived at 5:30 and our main course arrived at 6:30 Perhaps there was a problem with the kitchen staff? We ordered the NY Strip, Sea Bass and the Brussels Sprouts . All three were excellent.

A wonderful Valentine's Day experience. The range of menu items was just right. Champaign was very smooth with just the right level of sweetness. Our service was prompt and courteous. We arrived a little early but they had a table waiting for us so didn't have to wait in the bar. The quality of the food was truly 5 star.

This place is always the best. Kirsten and Lance are the best of the best when it comes to service; they are family. We went on Valentine's day lunch and they were being hammered by crowds of ravenous old people. But they are always friendly and fun and genuinely happy to see us. They deserve a massive raise!!

A classic bellevue restaurant. It seems that their popularity has required them to add more tables. Everything was top notch, as usual, but there are so many tables that we were cramped in our space. The corresponding noise was very loud and not typical to this high end restaurant. Love the spot, but I wish fewer people loved it too!

Bis on Main has always been our favorite place to go for special events.

A couple of odd things happened that were a little surprising to us. We brought our own bottle of Pinot Noir. The restaurant didn't have Pinot wine glasses and our server didn't offer to pour. It won't prevent us from coming back - it was a little strange.

We are glad you continue to be a part of Old Bellevue!

We had your Rubin sandwich, which we have had often. It usually is delicious, this was disappointing.. And the salad was 'blah'. Lettuce and dressing, period. Really? Our lunch was nearly $80. and it seems for that kind of money I should be able to say it was fantastic. I have recommended Bis many times, but am not sure I would again.

It’s a very warm, positive atmosphere. Great food - I had a coconut-based soup and the black cod, which was excellent. Blueberry lemon sorbet for dessert. For the high quality, I did not think it was very expensive. Hopefully I get to go again!

Got a last min reservation on a Saturday night. Place was packed but we still got great service from a seasoned waiter. We had three appetizers that came quickly and the wine list is extensive. We were excited that they had a bottle of pappy von winkle 20 year. It’s hard to find and definitely worth a return trip. The only thing I would change is the crime brûlée’s which sugar topping was a big chewy. I think it had been flamed before and maybe refrigerated so it didn’t have a crisp topping, but the flavor of the custard inside was great. All in all we would eat here again.
