The service was great, however the steak and other menu items were not worth the price . Overpriced for the common man, but not for Lobbyists.

Food was not good - very overpriced. Long wait for food delivery and restaurant was pretty empty. Would not return nor recommend.

Bistro Bis is bistro food--if you're familiar with Paris bistros, you'll be comfortable with the menu. But it's bistro dishes lifted to a new height, beyond what you'll find in the typical bistro. The menu doesn't have a huge number of dishes, but every one has had very serious attention, and it's delicious. Even surprisingly delicious. Every dish!

The service is friendly and very efficient, not at all intrusive, very professional.

My only gripe is that wildly overpriced wine list, that's filled with somewhat obscure choices, a favorite trick of sommeliers who expect you not to know the real value of the obscure wines they list. Best to bring your own wine and pay the corkage fee to avoid the traps of the wine list.
