Solid Choice in downtown Bellevue

I find it difficult to dine at restaurants in Bellevue that are not chains (national and local) and because of this I like Bis En Main. Their food is always consistent and I've always get great service. There is something for everyone on the menu from pasta, seafood to heavy meats. This past... read more

When you have an expensive meal you don't want to be rushed out the door. Removing someone's plate who has finished is very rude and not needed, It is good manners to wait until all your guests have finished their meal as well, A restaurant like this should know this is bad manners. Please do not ever reset the tables... More

Bis On Main has a very good reputation, so when I was asked to suggest a place to meet another couple for dinner, I suggested it. We had an enjoyable time; the atmosphere was bustling, yet cozy. However, the food was mediocre and very expensive, for what it was. The service was fine, but again nothing special. Our waiter hovered... More

Situated in old Bellevue, a stone throw from Bill Gates' neck of the wood, this restaurant attracts discerning customers of the sociable and epicurious ilk. Kobe (Wagyu) Beef Sliders a specialty, goes down well with a bottle of the most exquisite claret at the cozy cocktail bar where networking has been becoming for yonks. Great friendly ambiance and service has... More

A place the locals know about but try and keep it a secret. Bis has a great vibe and the locals call it home, either just meeting for a drink our enjoying an amazing meal. Bis is a bit old school with crisp white linins and dim lighting, great for two or ten. Many nights you will see athlete's and... More

During our walk through Old Bellevue on Main Street, we were looking for a place for lunch and stopped at Bis on Main. The lunch was superb in nearly all respects. My wife had the Gravlax, which is a "lox and bagel" dish. I had the Ahi Nicoise salad. Both were delicious and carefully presented. Everything first class. Service was... More

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.
