There is also street parking, when available.
This is my "go to" spot on the Hill! It is a breath of fresh air located in a neighborhood where good food is hard to come by.
A very fine place to eat lunch in the shadow of Union Station. Light and airy. Attentive but not intrusive wait staff.
Once again, Bistro Bis delivered a fantastic dining experience. The service was attentive and the meal was outstanding. I make a point of going there every time I am in Washington, D.C. and have never been disappointed.
Good food, good location, good service. As an out of townner, could not have been a better choice.
Very pleasant and delicious brunch super location. Friendly service. Fair prices. Excellent attentive care. A real find
The service was outstanding. The food was a little stuffy and not particularly well paired or prepared. It was an interesting mix of flavors that didn't quite mesh.
Located near Union Station and The Hill, Bistro Bis is consistently a great place to dine. Hotel George is a funky hotel and offers a great lobby to wait for your guests or you can sit at the Bistro Bis Bar. Food is excellent and this is the perfect place to have a business meal.
Always good and great service.
Our waiter, Olga, is a credit to youe establishment.
Great food and wine
We have dimed here on many occasions, but it had been a while. My aunt & uncle were in town, plus a childhood friend. Everyone else ordered steak frites, upon our server’s recommendation, and my mother’s go to. I had the bouillabaisse. We had charcuterie and salads to start— these were all great. The entrees failed. No one enjoyed their steak and my bouillabaisse included gritty mussels and not very tasty broth. Can’t imagine coming back.
Excellent meal and attentive service.
As usual, Bistro Bis food and service were superb. I think this is one of the best restaurants in DC.
Possibly underappreciated in the hurly-burly of Washington, DC, but clearly one of the very best!
Outstanding food, ambiance, service. A gem!
Food was very good! The onion soup was excellent. The duck was tasty and cook to the right temperature, but the fat was not crispy of could have been rendered more. My son had the veal chop which was excellent. Desserts were very good as well. Service was good, and the wine by the glass had excellent selections. Nice spot to have dinner any night. Also has a more casual bar seating, which I will go back to enjoy.
Excellent waiter, Norman.
Male maître ‘d- dreadful. True attitude issues.
Norman made up for it and the meal was delicious .
Moules marinière and trout ( ordered without ham!) main course.
Coffee and délices
Lovely server great food
Great experience wonderful staff fantastic food
The server never came back during our meal until the end. My steak was cooked perfectly but the pomme frites were way over cooked.
Mussels were perfect... and the rosé delightfully dry. A great meal!
Excellent, elegant food, wonderful and attentive service. Close to Union Station and the Senate.
Came here for our anniversary dinner last night. The chips on the steak tartare were stale, my steak frites was over cooked, and our server was unfriendly. Everything my husband asked how to pronounce she looked at him like he was a moron and had no idea what he was trying to say. Only gave 3 stars because the cocktails were decent and their wine pours were large, otherwise would give a 2. Definitely won't go back or recommend to people.
Food and service were excellent. However, air conditioning not functioning very well - it was very uncomfortable inside dining area.
Great food and reasonable prices for menu. Less appealing for vegetarian among my guests though. Need to add more selections in the menu. Somewhat warm on thermostat in the dining area
Only complaint - AC wasn’t working and it was rather warm in the restaurant. Otherwise food and service were excellent.
We asked for an got the perfect table...and had a perfect meal and outstanding service. Who could ask for more?
The halibut was superb.
This was my 3rd time at Bistro Bis since it was opened. It only gets better with age.
Absolutely, amazing. Will totally recommend this place - besides you never know VIPs could stop by!!
Food was good as always...although my lunch partner ended up getting the wrong dish...but she tried what they brought and liked it, so no harm done.
Bistro Bis is truly my favorite restaurant in DC. I tend to like French food more than any other cuisine, and Bistro Bis offers some of the finest. The staff has been there for many years, and several waiters know me by face recognition. Wish I could order a different appetizer than the Beet Salad, but I can't bring myself to do so. Love the place!
Loved their Restaurant Week menus! The food choices were a great representation of their overall menu! Will definitely come back again!
Very good food
Everything was great but the service is VERY slow... over an hour to get entrees is a bit extreme.
Ithe French onion soup was good but the entree of “almond encrusted scallops” was a let down! There were absolutely no almonds on them, they were served with a seasonless couscous with pickled vegetables (I wouldn’t eVen eat the couscous after the first bite I was turned off).. Desert was supposed to be a light flaky apple desert - instead it was doey and something tasted canned. I would not recommend it to a friend.
I’ve been twice and wait staff were good with Gluten Free/Dairy Free assistance both times
This review is based on a Restaurant Week Lunch, which was excellent. First of all, unlike many other restaurants, Bistro Bis offers a large menu, not just three or four items per course. Second, the menu offered several new items as well as some old classics. I had the corn soup, the branzino, and the apple dessert. All were superb. This may be the best Restaurant Week bargain in DC, but Bistro Bis is, from my experience, an excellent restaurant all the time.
Joe was the best waiter. Food fresh and delicious.
Came here for Restaurant week. Had the mussels, which were great, and the trout, which could not have been any more fresh or perfectly cooked. Crime brûlée was also top-notch and service was prompt and gracious.
