The food was delightful. The lobster roll brings me back to the East coast. And the service is always attentive and enjoyable.

Food was nice, but the venue was too crowded and noise level too high to make the prices feel worth it.

Arrived for an early, peaceful dinner at 6. Our server Anthony was personable, attentive and knowledgeable. Worked out perfect as restaurant was packed by 7:15. Valet parking in back makes for easy stress free parking. You won’t be disappointed!

Everything was perfect except the noise level. I requested a quiet table but maybe there wasn’t one.

Waiter was attentive but the delivery of drinks and food awkward. Things were not brought to the table together, first one glass of wine, then the other. Same with entrees My salad was wisked away before I finished. Entrees where nicely plated but one piece of my veal tenderloin was tough. When I told the waiter, he apologized but didn’t ask if he could offer any accommodation. We were celebrating a birthday and the reservation had indicated such. The waiter has been so informed upon our seating. There was not an offer of any “birthday” treat but that’s their choice. We will not dine here again. So so food and dining experience at a price of $200- not a good value.

I ate there with my children, husband and father. The food was great as was the service. Dungeness crab cakes were excellent and the wait staff was super attentive. Will go back again!

Excellent food. We had the crab cakes as an appetizer which were very good, however at $28 for two way overpriced IMHO. The caesar and house salads were excellent. I loved the blue cheese dressing on the house salad. Two of us had the NY steak and the other two had the filet. All steaks were cooked perfectly. According to the NY steak eaters they both said it was the best NY they ever had. The only real negative is the noise. The restaurant is LOUD. Our reservation was at 7:30 and it finally quieted down around 9. If noise bothers you I suggest you come early or late. If Bellevue wasn't so far for me Bis on Main would be a regular dinner out spot.

Thank you for coming to visit us! We appreciate it and YES! $28 is too much for 2 crab cakes, but please note that the price of fresh Dungeness Crab has skyrocketed over the past year and we are now paying $50 per pound for crab meat! We either have to charge accordingly or stop serving them, and if we did that my young son would disown me, as our crab cakes are his favorite.

Nice solid restaurant. The rigatoni was fairly good better at a certain place up the street. But the ambience is cozy warm and great for conversation. Truffle fries and kale and fish and chicken were great

My wife and I have dined at Bis for many years, pretty much since it opened. We have never been disappointed in the food or service. Bis is our favourite restaurant in the greater Seattle area. We dined again last night and it was again, perfect. Best of all, our server was our good friend, Walter, who we have known for over 25 years. Just doesn't get any better.

The space was a little tighter than I anticipated but the experience far surpassed that element. Anthony, our server was so lovely, attentive and really added to our experience. I was anticipating a slow service time with how busy the place was, but not at all. My husband and I can’t wait to go back and highly recommend. Also… get the crab cakes! Yum!

Very accommodating and lovely meal.

We called to move our reservation up by 90 minutes and the Bis team were very gracious and able to get us seated. We ordered a nice variety of dishes and desserts and everyone had a bit of food envy when we saw the other dishes. Very nice evening and cozy for a rainy Saturday night.

Service was mediocre, not much attention or smiles. Food was sub-par. Tuna on the Nicois Salad was fatty and inedible. Bill was super high for a light lunch for 2 with no alcohol. $80.

For the first time in a number of visits, we were not enamored with Bis on Main. The restaurant was quite crowded and very noisy (perhaps unusual for a Monday night?), and the time gap between our order and the serving of both our salad and main dishes was quite lengthy.

Wow wow wow! This place is amazing! Decided to try a new restaurant for a birthday, and no regrets! My husband ordered the filet mignon, while I ordered the sea bass special. The filet was cooked perfectly, while the sea bass was probably the best fish I’ve ever had! The finished crisp topping was incredibly joyful, and it wasn’t overwhelming or sauced. Both my husband and I joined the clean plate club! Our server was a delight, and we will definitely be returning!

When we arrived the reservation made through OpenTable was not on their books. The Maitre’d did not make a big fuss or try to make us feel as though we had made a mistake. He simply explained what was happening, mentioned that it had happened previously and immediately found us a table although they were busy. Both the service and the food were excellent and the atmosphere was very relaxing. I would definitely eat there again.
