Great service and wonderful wines. the food is so delicious. a definite place to eat. Try the white burgundy. it is worth the price. I had the scallops. they melted in my mouth. And the deserts were beautifully prepared.

There was nothing not to like about lunch at Bistro Bis, which is located in the Hotel George. Senses come alive with the creative cuisine which is beautifully prepared. The Gratin of Macaroni w/gruyere - YUM, as was the Fig, onion and goat cheese tart...the perfect combination of sweet and savory on a delicate tart crust - WOW!

Eight of us for lunch while doing meetings on the Hill. This was a wonderful place to stop and have lunch. The staff was wonderfully attentive and the food out of this world. French onion soup...oh so good.

An excellent venue near Union Station with good food and great service. Filling salads or more formal entrees. Full drink menus if needed but great house wine selections. Tables are comfortably arranged to support good crowds without crowding. A bit pricey but worth it.

I was staying at The George and didn't want to go outside in the cold snowy weather. Urban Spoon gave this place high marks so I thought I would try it. I had the frisee salad and the salmon entree - but were REALLY good. The salmon was cooked to my perfect taste (which they asked about before ordering). The... More
