And the selections were interesting and varied, but I guess I don't share the chef's ideas of which flavors go together. For example, the scallop appetizer was perfectly cooked, but I couldn't taste the nut topping on it and the scallops were sitting it a bean/olive combo that I didn't think went with them. The coq au vin was well... More

This restaurant is attached to the Hotel George, and is quite good for "hotel food". We had breakfast here before our day of sightseeing. My husband had the corned beef hash with poached eggs on top, and I had eggs Florentine with toast and potatoes. Both were very good, and the coffee was excellent. Our server was very good and...

This place is probably better for lunch/dinner so don't let this review discourage you. We had breakfast here and it was not that great. The service was very good and very fast and it was nice to sit outside but the food wasn't amazing. I think they do a much better job on lunch/dinner.

I sat at the bar since I was travelling solo. A fun space and a festive crowd. The bartender was a tad snarky, but warmed up as we went along... My Cosmo was excellent, and I chose it because the pricing on the white wine was ridiculously high. I ordered from the bar menu because I was early, and I... More

Food was delicious, service was great and wine choices excellent. And if you are staying in The George hotel it is just downstairs.

The Bistro Bis is attached to the Hotel George and we ate there several times during our stay. The dinners are excellent with a good variety of dishes to select from for those jaded with the ubiquitous American menu items. The cuisine is modern and flavoursome.the wine list is good and the service professional.

The service was professional. Starter salads were beautiful and delicious (I had heirloom tomatoes, companion has heirloom beets). Then I indulged in grilled foie gras followed by steak frites. The former was a small but perfect portion, the latter was very big. A fine place.
