Try it. You'll like it!

Quaint intimate place in Bellevue's "old town." The lamb shank and the filet were fantastic and the atmosphere was cozy and intimate. The waiter and wait staff were efficient and not intrusive.

Do go, and ask for Ryan! Super nice welcoming feel and unassuming room. Friendly host and bar/ lounge. Boutique feel with classy wall art and decor. Fish is fresh and prepared well. Wine menu succinct yet adequate. Ryan was attentive and friendly, and did not miss a beat. I highly recommend "Bis" place!

We had a wonderful black cod dish with crimini mushroom sauce that was scrumptious--followed that with a strawberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream that is the best I've ever tasted. We ate in the bar, very comfortable and quiet for conversation, complete with white linens and perfect service. Also great martinis! Yum....

I have to say we had one of our best meals and service ever at this restaurant. The menu isn't extensive but it has a wonderful variety of choices and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Our server was great and he knew so much about wine that we ventured and tried a French varietal that we'd never had, simply outstanding. From... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant for lunch during our walk in "Old Bellevue" and decided to return for a special occasion dinner. This is a wonderful, high quality restaurant in the heart of Bellevue. I ordered the lamb shank, which melted off the bone, served with artichoke hearts, snap peas, and potato gnocchi. My wife had a perfectly prepared filet... More

I don't get the new restaurant scene where you pay a lot of money to eat unimaginative food in sportsbar sound levels. Where's the ambience? Where's the class? Where's the ghostly waitstaff who one doesn't even notice while you and your date actually talk? I guess it all got up and ran over to BisOnMain. Bravo Joe.

Overall, I recommend Bis on Main. Let me begin by saying the ambience was not overstated while still feeling like fine dining. My favorite feature: it was quiet. After dining at some of the top rated restaurants in Portland which can be overwhelmingly noisy , the ability to hear my husband was much appreciated. So why the four star? $$$... More

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 Monday, I ordered their fish of the...

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
