A very fancy meal all around. Perfect for a random fancy date night. Split the steak and they split everything for us no problem.

Generally targeted to the Bellevue regulars; I waited to 'Joe the Owner'; who was also the host to come seat us; took him forever to actually notice me. Then I would say that he is a less than pleasant 'host'; he's great for his regulars, not so much for new faces. It also took a looooong time to get a round of drinks going for our table let alone to get a waiter to come serve us. Well once the waiter arrived, he was great and pleasant. The food overall for what they charge was overpriced- you are much better off going to John Howie, El Guacho or other established restaurants in the area for better service & food. Overall good experience but food is overrated & overpriced and if your not a regular here go somewhere else

This place always delivers high quality food, perfect cocktails and solid service. Walter is old school and witty, gives great service. Don't leave without trying the chocolate souffle...

Reservation at 1130 (when Bis opened) restaurant didn't seat anyone until 1145. Overall food was fine - truffle fries were lovely, nicoise salad was nice... Realized later when a table nearby asked for balsamic that was what was missing on the caprese salad (!!!) I was shocked at $18 mimosa for my friend when my prosecco was $13. I wanted this experience to be amazing because I rarely get out as a parent... And it was just a shade off of "good" at every turn.

We were really disappointed by the food. I ordered the NY Strip, and it was seriously over-flavored and cold. My wife ordered the duck, and it similarly just had way too much going on. We won’t be going back.

Based on Open Table reviews, we picked Bis on Main for nice lunch on a recent visit to the PNW. Better come hungry because the portions are hefty. Hubs had rigtoni bolognese and I had steak frites. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly. Not to bad a wait for food but this is a relaxing 2 martini lunch not a quick run from the office. Would definitely recommend and try for dinner.

The food, you can never go wrong!! Drinks, yummy. Servers? They are very professional with nice sense of humors. For a Thursday night, it was a bit loud, but the tables were nicely spaced. I will always eat here when I want a nice dinner and able to share with friends and family.

Excellent dining spot in downtown Bellevue. We have been visiting Bellevue frequently as of late, and I only regret that we did not know of this place sooner.

Excellent food, great service.

We will be returning.

Horrible service. To start I like to say the food is amazing and this restaurant is a Bellevue gem. However we have horrible service from Anthony who claims that he’s been there over 12 years. What a shock. He treated us with the utmost unwelcoming indifference. He came to our table so in frequently and only if we happened to make eye Contact and when we flagged him. Couple of times we asked The runner to get him because he hadn’t been by in 15-20 minutes. Once we had to get up and go look for him because he hadn’t been around and we needed more drinks, and found him conversing very nicely with another party. We even asked ourselves what did we do or say to get such attitude. We had a $460 tab and We left with sour feeling because of the experience with the server. We still left them at 15% gratuity which We all agreed he did not deserve.

Service was as if they wanted us out as quickly as possible. Done with no personality or flair. Had told them on OpenTable of birthdays but they did nothing until told about them before dessert was serviced. Drinks were cleared promptly, including before completely done, with no questions about if we would like another. They could have sold more wine if they were not in such a hurry to turn our table, but there were other tables that were empty so not sure why they were in such a hurry.

We had a friend visiting out of town and spent the afternoon at the wineries. Bis on Main was the best way we could have ended it. Our food was amazing, the wine was spectacular, and our server, Richard, was the cherry on top. He entertained, met all our expectations and even enjoyed letting us chat with him. Incredible. And can’t be beat.
