Excellent dining, wonderful appetizers, strong cocktails - what's not to love? The atmosphere is hipster/urban for a suburb, and it feels high end. A varied selection that will meet any palate. It's spendy, but feels lux, so it's great for a romantic evening out. Seating is a little tight and you'd do well to make a reservation!

Tonight was our third visit to Bis on Main. We have always enjoyed the wonderful service and delicious food! Nice selection of wine too. It's a great place for couples, families, and larger groups. We didn't realize until last night that they offer valet parking in the alley behind the restaurant. This is a huge benefit as parking in old... More

Love going to Bis on Main. The food is good and their staff is wonderful. Now that there has been a change in ownership we have noticed a slight dip in quality coming out of the kitchen. Joe ran a tight ship. I hope they can get ahold of it before it becomes a problem. Will try again soon and... More

Dropped in last night without a reservation and were quickly accommodated! Food, service and atmosphere keep us coming back. And we love Joe's wine list.

The Bis is one of our go-to restaurants for entertaining guests and my favorite for lunch with girlfriends. The service is low-key and never rushed---a good thing because my BFF and I have 2- to 3-hour lunches. The food is reliably good--great soups, a daily quiche and salads are my faves for lunch. The wine list is good, with reasonable... More

Old world and not in a good way. Food and service was mediocre. I had heard a lot about his place and was very disappointed. There are a lot better places in Bellevue and on Old Main for that matter.

A friend and I had a catch-up lunch here recently. We had delicious meals, outstanding coffee and we could hear each other talk. The soft-shelled crab sandwich was outstanding as was the service.

I had a soft shell crab sandwich for lunch that came with a quinoa salad with mushrooms. It was quite good though not exceptional. Prices, as others have commented, are on the high side.
