Great menu, lovely ambiance, service first-rate. I am not sure why my husband and I only seem to come to Bis on Main when we are celebrating something special.

We had a wonderful table at the window in the front room - thank you, Joe! Service was attentive & professional and 3 out of 4 entrees were delicious. We will dine here again!

Not bad, but for the price we usually get better quality at other restaurants for half to a third the cost.

Very good food but service was slow - the waiter seemed like he may have had too much going on as it took forever to even take our orders, and the pace between courses seemed entirely too slow. The back dining room feels too much like a small banquet room to me, the front-streetside dining room and bar areas have much better ambiance.

We went for a birthday for my wife.
We came in and were seated right away. Our waiter came and seemed distracted and short with us. As we asked for a recommendation on wine, he answered “ well I don’t know what you like” ???
The lightning was a bit dark, I had the dry aged New York. Medium rare. I couldn’t see it when it was brought out . Taste wise, it was a bit dry and over done.
My wife’s cod was bland. No flavor.
Having a 4star rating we thought it would have been better.

First time at this restaurant. Very nice white table cloth type of establishment. Food was very good, perhaps a little expensive for quality and inventiveness. Service was good and attentive, but not anything special. We were seated in the back room, with about 8+/- tables and ambiance was a little lacking, the front area that looks out on to the street, looked more lively and colorful. The wine list is huge and mostly very expensive, only a few less than $50.00 and most starting in the $75.00 range and way up from there . The mark up on the wines I recognized exceeded 100%.

Great food, good service, but ambivalent reception. I have always loved the food here, but I do not understand the ambivalence about the reception when you are spending this much for lunch. The greeting was muted and there was no thanks for coming upon departure.

Christmas Eve dinner with family. Overall very good but my son ordered a strip steak medium rare and it came out well done. Sent back to be redone and it took a while to redo. Everyone else was done by the time the steak came back out. Disappointing for such a great restaurant. Otherwise all the rest of the food and service was excellent.
