Fabulous breakfast as always. Service top notch.
We enjoy Bistro Bis for its food, service and ambience. Its hotel location means the restaurant has hotel hours, which provides more flexibility. My wife and I are fans, as are friends we've introduced to the place. Keep up the good work.
Didn’t have a welcoming feeling towards our party even though there were very few dinners
Dinner with my daughter, Great service, amazing food! Would go back again. Thank you for making the night special!
The hostesses here have been mostly unfriendly, even hostile on occasion. Yet, the wait staff are excellent. Odd dynamic. You just shake off the unprofessional greeter, the food and other service is excellent.
Whenever I am in Dc I try to have a meal at Bistro Bis. Lunch is always a treat with a great menu and marvelous service. A glass of one of their lovely wines is a nice way to end the business day., so I try to make this my last meal before boarding another dreadful 4-1/2 hour flight home.
Daughter came in from New York. Food and staff were excellent. Made for a great memory
I’ve eaten dinner on a weekday and it was packed (deservedly so!). On this Saturday for a late breakfast, my wife and I were the only diners. I have no idea why! The food is fabulous in all catgories. I had the trout with capers and white wine sauce. My wife had lump crabcakes. They arrived hot, in a timely manner, well presented, and tasty! No complaints except where was everybody??!
This restaurant is consistently very good. The French onion soup is among the best we have had and the fresh beat salad was delicious. We really enjoyed the warm puff pastry as well!
Great quiet place with a great menu. Also, the food is exceptional.
BB was excellent but at this place it's all about getting the right table. We got a booth in the area just down the ramp on the right. The noise in this area is very manageable. Our server (didn't catch his name) was terrific - he was there when he needed to be and otherwise not there. I had the burger which is always terrific and one colleague got the duck which looked really good.
Service was so so.
Bistro Bis is one of my" go to" places when I'm in DC. The food is excellent. Wine list is very good. Service is fast and professional.
GREAT FOOD, A LITTLE PRICEY BUT WORTH IT CUZ OF ALL AROUND AMBIENCE!
Loved our waiter Memo!!
Wonderful place that I frequent whenever I am in DC
Good business meal. We could hear each other in a booth. Great food and nice unobtrusive service.
Amazing!!!! Steve made us feel right st home. Even went back again with other friends! Food was excellent and so was the staff!
Wonderful food, excellent service. If I'm in DC for business and want a special dinner, I'm never disappointed at Bistro Bis. The octopus appetizer was phenomenal as was the trout, accompanied by a great Sancerre. A memorable evening.
Our waiter went above and beyond to find us the perfect wine. Lovely mellow ambience in front room. Would recommend sitting there.
Superb food. Great wine menu.
The restaurant came highly recommend so we decided to see for ourselves and we're very dissatisfied. The service was not good but was not the waiters fault as we found out the other waiter didn't show up so he was in the weeds from the start. I have eaten at some of the finest french restaurants all over the country and halfway around the world and one ranks as one of the worst french restaurants I have ever eaten at. I don't know what was the problem but that was not french cooking. I've had better food at Applebee's so if you really know what french food taste like go somewhere else.
The service was horrible. It took our waiter 45 minutes to take our order and only after I flagged him down. The bottle of wine I ordered didn’t come to our table until I asked where it was - this was after we had already finished our appetizers. When it arrived, it was room temperature (white wine)! The last glass of the bottle was finally chilled. Our waiter never came to our table to check on us. We were always flagging down the busboy. The food was good, but not worth the horrible service.
great, comfortable Sat date night
serving team is spot on
food was great as advertised- try the duck
wonderful food with inventive twists on traditional favorites, good size portions, excellent service
Bistro Bis has always been a decent lunch venue for business lunches. I have dined twice in the last month and both times the service has been slow and unfortunately, medium rare came as medium well. Still a good spot, but next time I will order an item that doesn't require a temperature.
Our server Olga was a pleasure and fun. We had a really enjoyable evening. The food was very good as well.
Fun menu, efficient service without any sense of rush, close to union station
Great food, great service. Recommend dressing up otherwise you’ll feel uncomfortable when the majority are dressed up.
Salle sympathique, bons vins, très bon repas, très bon service. Un vrai plaisir après une bonne journée de marche à Washington DC !
We had the steak tartare appetizer with handmade potato chips. It's centered over a quail's egg and it's all delicious. My partner had the steak frittes and I had the mushroom pasta, which was wide tagliattelli with a butter and cheese sauce. Both dishes were very good. We finished off by sharing a apple tart -- what a special dessert.
When I worked on the Hill I used to dine there regularly along with a lot of people, members and staff, from the Congress. (One time a friend and I got into a friendly conversation with Senator Kennedy and his son Patrick.) The food, service, and ambience were always above par.
It's been some time since a return visit but our dining experience of a few days ago was everything I remembered this restaurant to be. The cocktails were great, particularly the house version of the Dark and Stormy. Three of us had trout for a main course -- great as I remember. I started with steak tartare which is not a usual on menus. Again, great as I remember.
It was early and quiet and a wonderful dining experience, again.
One of the best choices for a power lunch in the general vicinity of Union Station and the Capitol.
Spoil ourselves for a long weekend of culture in New York. Celebrating life while undergoing chemo.
We've dined here for several years. It's our favorite District restaurant.
Staff were very helpful and the food was terrific! Definitely a hidden gem in Capitol Hill!
delicious food, amazing service, nice and very clean
Wonderful everything!!! Wait staff was superb!! Meal selections amazing!! Overall great!
