Service as always was right on target: attentive, timely, friendly, but not invasive. Food was amazing~2 fish entries cooked to perfection. Wine service knowledgeable & on target. There is a reason this is a fail-safe, reliable choice whenever you need a dinner to go off without a hitch.

We have not eaten out in a restaurant for almost 18 months due to the pandemic. We've purchased take-out at Bis on Main many times during this period, but to celebrate our 49th anniversary, we decided to try indoor dining. The restaurant was packed and very, very busy and this was a Thursday night. A large outdoor seating area has been added during the pandemic, so the restaurant has actually increased its seating capacity. We were seated at a nice table, but the adjacent diners were too close for comfort and diners should have been spaced further apart. The service was 1st class, the food, wine and drinks were very good and I would have given Bis on Main 5 stars except for the crowded conditions. We will stick with take-out ordering and won't go back to indoor dining until the pandemic improves and I recommend caution for other diners, too.

Host was gruff.
Service was rushed but competent.
Food was average, not great.
Premises are dated.
Prices were reasonable.
Noise level was almost bearable.
Would not return.
I understand lack of staffing but just acceptable food is not acceptable.

Overall experience was good! We arrived for our reservation and was seated immediately. The waiter took our drink or forgot to bring my Mom's drink. The appetizers took longer than expected but waiter gave one desert for free because of it. Food was tasty and delicious. Chicken I had was seasoned very well. I loved the mashed potatoes. The only thing I didn't like is that they didn't sing happy birthday to my Dad. They did put a candle in the desert. Maybe thats all they do.

I asked for something gluten free and our waiter said the vegan pasta is made in house and made with semolina. He insisted that semolina is gluten free. I knew it wasn’t but I got convinced and ate it. Well, it wasn’t gluten free. I feel very disappointed with the waiter and with myself for letting him convince me.

After dealing with what appears to be displaced anger of the manager at Cantinetta, we came here and so thrilled we did! The food is amazing! Our server Bobbi and everyone else was the upmost in professionalism and very personable. The restaurant is very warm and cozy. Thank you'll for making girls night so fun!

Disappointing. The staff there is not friendly. No greeting. Masks below their nose or no mask. We sat outside and our waiter was nice. The food was good but nothing special and the prices were ridiculous. I’d rather wat at 520 grill across the street any day. Disappointed.

Our server was great!!

Linguine and prawns not worth having on menu- very oily and no flavor at all.
Cioppino was good.
Salads leave much to be desired!
Caesar was ok. Mixed greens need more than iceberg.
Pork chop good. Filet fine.
Needs a makeover and new art!
We continue to return due to location abs parking.
The food and space have great potential!
Valet guy was very kind!

Bis on Main never, ever, disappoints me. When I want a top shelf steak, cooked flawlessly, accompanied by nice sides, I always come to Bis on Main. In reality, I've come to expect this level, and each time, these folks nail it !

Amazing experience, food was awesome , service was impeccable and the desserts specially are out of this world.
Our server took really good care of us from the moment we stepped in to when we left. Wine recommendation was the best and they were able to cater to all of our dietary restrictions. Amazing experience, definitely recommend for small group gatherings

The service at Bis on Main was excellent. We ate outside on a beautiful day which was a great option, however the traffic noise on Main was a little excessive. The food was very good - I had the Lentil Soup and the Sea Scallops. I prefer a more-creamy Lentil Soup but I think that's a personal preference - it was still very good. The Sea Scallops were cooked perfectly, tender and browned on top and bottom. Our server was attentive and respectful and professional. Overall a very good business lunch experience.
