Bistro Bis Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyed an outstanding venison carpaccio and roasted branzino with olives, artichokes and blood orange slices. Both were "wow" dishes! The setting is a bit "hotel bland", but it is a decent space for conversation. The food is definitely worth going back for.
Server was good but food from the kitchen took longer than it should have. Space was fine but restrooms were closed for renovations so you were directed to restroom in the fitness center of the hotel which was less than pleasing. Looked like ceiling was going to fall in due to being stained from leaks.
Bis was as good as always. It's our go-to place when we want a comfortable evening for good conversation with food to match. There's not a dish on the menu we wouldn't order. This time of year, many of the dishes are comfort food and very welcome. Service is unobtrusive and promptly available when needed. The atmosphere is quiet enough to talk but convivial. We'll be back.
We ate here twice during Restaurant Week, once for lunch and once for dinner. Over those meals, we had the beet salad, endive salad, foi gras, trout, risotto, and bouillabaisse. They were all exceptional! The Restaurant deals made the whole experience reasonable yet special. Highly recommended.
I was here over Restaurant Week so I expected it to be busy. However, apparently Bistro Bis did not expect it to be busy, because they only had one poor bartender scrambling to cover most of the front section and the bar. The food (onion soup, duck confit) was delicious, but I ended up having to leave without eating my dessert because the service was so slow. The server was wonderful when she was at my table, just far too busy.
I like this place for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The food’s only so-so. Nothing to inspire. But it’s a good place if you work or are around Union Station. I’d recommend for cocktails and bar, and maybe lunch or dinner, if you’re not looking for something special with innovative fare.
