This restaurant is connected to George Hotel, just steps from Union Station. Great selection to choose from, and everything is good.

I had a noon meeting near Union Station and had heard about Bistro Bis as a nice option. I had the Salmon. It was excellent. The restaurant is in the George Hotel so it is not easily seen from the street. The service was good and the waiter left us alone to finish our meeting. I'm not sure I would travel just to eat there but if I am in the area I will return

Excellent. Reasonable corkage fee. Loved the beet salad. Loved the lamb shank. We splured and had dessert. OMG! Great, great coffee. Staff was excellent and very attentive.

We had a wonderful dinner at Bistro Bis on a recent trip to the Capitol. I was a bit wary after reading the reviews, but we came out on the very positive side. We shared an endive salad, lightly dressed, very fresh and tasty. One of us had roasted duck ravi; the other sweetbreads. The duck was perfectly cooked to our taste, served with olives (a bit like Chez Allard in Paris). The sweetbreads were also beautifully prepared and served on a bed of exotic vegetables. The wine list is large and most bottles were $100 and up so it was hard to find a reasonably priced wine to accompany dinner. We ultimately elected a Gigondas recommend by our waiter and were not disappointed.

Called to make reservation for 2 for 6:30. Was told impossible but there was one for 6:15. Arrived at 6:15. Entire time at the restaurant there were maybe 5 full tables out of 50. Food was good but nothing to get excited about.
