We felt a bit rushed due to server who seemed anxious to take our orders. Otherwise, the food was delicious as usual.

As usual, service and food were outstanding at Bis. I really enjoy the place and supporting a locally owned establishment.

We were a party of five and everyone enjoyed their meal. I was not as impressed with my meal. I had cod, which I felt was undercooked. Our service started off good, but as the place got busier our service took a serious nose dive. I still ended up leaving a 20% tip primarily because everyone except me enjoyed their food. If it was solely for service my tip would’ve been no more than 10%. The restaurant was extremely noisy and we were hoping for a quieter setting. A nice place, but we will more than likely not return.

Food was really good; outstanding Manhattan clam chowder. Server could have been nicer. Didn’t really care if we were there or not. Loved the ambiance though.

Bis is always a favorite spot for us. We had a party of 9 which is not easy to seat, but as always, had fantastic service & excellent food.

Great place, great food, and great service. Really nice place to go. Go early and its quieter, but gets a little noisier quickly. Price is $$$.

Stellar neighborhood restaurant that beats many downtown high-end dining experiences. Never disappoints...whether it’s a business lunch, impromptu dinner with friends or date night or other special occasion, BoM is always a first choice.

We arrived early for our reservation hoping to have a cocktail while we waited, but they got us a table right away! Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. He was friendly and professional. And the food!! Both steaks were cooked perfectly and expertly seasoned. Worth every penny!

My wife and I celebrated our 26th Wedding Anniversary at Bis on Main New Year's Eve. As usual, Joe, the owner, greeted us and cheerfully seated us immediately. The fresh oysters on a half shell were delightful.

Bis's wine selection is outstanding. My favorite cocktail, old fashioned, is made perfectly at Bis, with a hint of smoke.

My wife had the rigatoni and, as usual, I dined on the delicious garlic chicken. Both superb. To finish off,
we indulged in Bis's southern pecan pie, a la mode. Ahhhhh.....another great meal at Bis.

Biz is top notch. Ambiance is great. Food is always delicious. It’s one of the few places where we don’t have trouble talking - most places are so loud we have to shout or eat in silence.

We had been to Bis in the summer. We had a great experience with our grand daughter and they were able to create a great meal for her. We came with her again after the Nutcracker, expecting the same. The food took 43 minutes to arrive. That is a very long time for a 9 year old to wait. The sliders were good. The fries were cold and limp. Not sure we will return with her. Very disappointing. Expected more for sure.

Excellent food and service. Slightly noisier than I like on this visit but it was a busy night around the holidays so there were larger groups than is probably typical. But overall I highly recommend it.

Bis on Main delivers again! We are vegan and they have a nightly vegan special, while also being very flexible and knowledgeable working with vegans to make some of the other menu items vegan. The attention to flavor, texture and dish combinations is outstanding, leaving us with lots of...mmmms. This season, try the wild mushroom and "creamy" polenta happy; it's truly outstanding! Back soon...

We were a group of six out having our yearly Christmas lunch and It was a disappointment to say the least. Nobody liked their meal. Mine probably would have been delicious if it hadn’t been burned on the bottom and over cooked. (Croque Monsieur) The mushroom bisque was just ok, the Sal’s salad was bland. I was expecting so much better. We won’t be back.

Always one of my favorites in downtown Bellevue.
Great service and great food is always a given.
If there is one thing that can be improved, it would be the interior decor. It has been the same for years.
