All drinks, appetizers and entrees were wonderful. The service, though a bit slow, was lovely. The space is smallish and they were busier than I'd expect on a Tuesday night, but the food was worth it. Make a reservation! The crispy garlic chicken was really good. I also loved all of the local art on the walls (many items are... More

Love Bis on Main. I have been her multiple times and just revisited after being out of the area for 3 years. Food is as good as ever. Its always packed so you must have a reservation. Martinis are excellent. Portions are large---especially meat. The Garlic Chicken was fantastic. Fish was good as well. Noisy but also romantic.

Pro tip - allocate time to find a parking spot, it's street parking. A fairly smallish place, nice ambiance, very continental. Attentive service. Pretty good wine list. Nice classic French food. An excellent bistro in old downtown Bellevue.

Super Hidden Secret downtown Bellevue. This French Bistro is SUPERB. It's quaint and quiet, and only seats 50 max. But the Service, the food are incredible. Try it and you'll be hooked.

Are you looking for a chic and romantic place in Bellevue where you can sit across from your date and have an personal & engaging conversation? If so, keep looking, this ain't the place. First off, the place is crazy noisy. Sitting across a small table from my date, I could barely hear her and I don't suffer from a... More

Bis is one of those places that you make sure to take your guests from out of town and to 'show off' to your foodie friends. It's a local spot where you will see the Bellevue who's who in a relaxed and fun environment. Both the regular menu and the specials are well thought out and a great use of... More

The first thing to note about the menu is that it is filled with classic, perfectly prepared dishes. Choosing what entre to have is difficult because so much is appealing - take a look at their online menu. There were four at our table and between us we had a NY steak, the garlic chicken, prawns and halibut. We began... More

Let me be clear that my review is on the overall experience with our visit to Bis on Main and not focused on any particular aspect. We were given a very generous gift certificate to dine here and were looking forward to using it (my first visit here). Being as we weren't up for a full meal on a Sunday... More

I have eaten at Bis on Main twice now and enjoyed it greatly each time. Great food and good service. Nice wine list. Garlic chicken is incredible, as are the brussel sprouts.
