Bistro Bis is located in the Kimpton Hotel. Very nice decoration of the hotel and nice ambience in the restaurant. The Food was good, there is a lot of choice as well... I did not like our waitress very much, when asking her questions, or asking her to repeat something she seemed frustrated... One downside (for myself at least), when... More

Lunch meeting with friends. Good food, attentive staff. Tasty food, but on the expensive side. Location near Union Station / Capitol building.

$$$$. The food was good but not for the price. The wait staff was very professional. I had the steak medium but came with French fries. Steak cooked perfect just thought fries were strange. One son had the trout and Brussels sprouts. Both gone way to quick. Other son had the braised short ribs, he complemented me saying my slow... More

I came to Bistro Bis during a business trip to DC. It is very close to Congress. The service was very attentive and warm for DC standards nowadays. The food was perfectly executed: escargot to start, delicious. But the real thing was the steak and frites. A perfectly done steak, juicy, tender and full of taste with butter and peppercorns....

Bistro Bis is a lovely restaurant, expensive but not too much so,with a wide varied menu and attentive service. Tables in the back of the restaurant against a wall are a bit quieter. When we want to splurge for a night out and be up on the Hill, this restaurant is one of our favorites. If you are staying at... More

We had a most sumptuous dinner Friday, March 10, 2017 and both of us were in agreement this experience was one of the best culinary adventures we've ever had. The two entrees, Scallops and Le Basque Chicken, were excellent and brought to our table by our waiter, Jose, who went above and beyond to see to all of our needs.... More

We were looking for a place near what we were doing for lunch. So it's close to Washington monument , the capital and Lincoln memorial... but we took an uber from George to Lincoln memorial $7.00 since the kids did not want to walk. The food was outstanding here! My kids got the burger...best burger ever! We got escargot. Not... More

I wanted a quick, light bite and a well crafted drink. Bistro Bis exceeded all my expectations. I had their mushroom tart with the perfect dirty martini. Great service. I'll be back next time I'm in town.
