Our third time visiting Bis on Main, this time to celebrate Father’s Day, and as before we appreciated the warm, attentive service. We enjoyed oysters on the half shell, tomato basil mozzarella salad, and for entrees had a delicious prawn linguine, black cod miso and their crispy garlic chicken. Our water glasses were never left to go empty, plates were cleared in a timely fashion without feeling rushed. Molten chocolate soufflé was not the best we’ve ever had but we still polished it off happily enough and our daughter loved the mixed berry sorbet. We had dined at a local steakhouse a couple weeks ago and were entirely let down by the subpar service but Bis on Main continues to maintain a high standard and we so appreciate this. Great job everyone! We will be back.

It was our first time on Bis on Main and the whole time we felt valued. The Valet driver was respectful, the host was awesome, and our server Anthony was incredible. My girlfriend loved that there were glassy babies ok every table, the decor was beautiful and yes, the food is great. I would definitely go back.

Pork chop was juicy, but needed a little more seasoning The apple compote topping was really nice with little spice that made the dish a winner. Mushroom risotto was simply fantastic and very flavorful. Salad was ok. We had Gruner Veltliner as our wine - it was just ok. Can't wait to return next time.

It was quite dull thus the noise level made hearing our table conversation somewhat difficult. We were on round table, maybe a booth would have made our dinner conversation easier to hear.

As always, excellent food and service. I continue to come here when I want an excellent steak and they have never disappointed. These folks crush Daniels, John Howie, Ruth's Chris, and The Met with their offerings and value.

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

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.
