Tucked away in St Martin’s Courtyard, just off Upper St Martin’s Lane, Bill’s Covent Garden restaurant has plenty of seating across two floors, as well as outside. Think comfortable sofas, pops of colour and unique antiques and treasures chosen by Bill himself. Open all day and into the night.

Lovely food service mmm not so good. Waitress came to take our plates never even asked if we had enjoyed or if we wanted anything else felt that was a bit rude

Post theatre dinner. We arrived early but no problem and we were seated.
Only complaint- NZ Sauv Blanc was out of stock!
Good food in nice surroundings, clearly popular which is always a good sign.

Made reservations here for dinner on a Saturday evening and overall was a good place. Service was slow- waited 15 minutes for drinks but food came fast. Check also took a long time to get but overall nice place and friendly staff.

Lovely decor. Loved all the plants abd ornaments and there is some outside seating. Staff friendly and helpful. Food a bit disappointing. Probably made bad choices. My minute steak was pretty tasteless and eggs too hard. My daughters beef burger she said was OK but nothing special.
I have had fish pie and macaroni cheese in the past which were really nice. I would still go back though.

We really enjoyed are visit. The food was great, but the service wasn’t the best. Waitress didn’t know the menus and there was only one server assistant. Drinks were outstanding though!

One meal arrived after the rest of us had finished our dinners - and wasn’t even what we had ordered. Steak was chewy and tasteless. Took ages to get even a glass of wine. And just felt very overpriced for what it was. Have always enjoyed Bill’s before so very disappointing for a birthday night out..

Fantastic food and a great service. We had breakfast, it was very nice hot food. Slightly cold in the restaurant due to the door being open the whole time and windy outside but not freezing. Overall very nice

We had pre-booked and, on arrival, selected a table for 3 in the small outdoor area.
It was pleasant, but the disadvantage is lack of attention from staff who were occupied in the busy ground floor and upstairs.
The Sauvignon Blanc advertised on the menu was out, as were the pints of Peroni ("We only do 330ml bottles...). So we had a pleasant Pinot Grigio.
Bill's sharing platter was excellent for 3 of us.
Mains of 2 Chicken Burgers were fine, although when I sampled the chicken at the end, it was a bit dry. My Seafood Pie was OK, but seemed to have only Cod and Salmon, not the shellfish indicated, and needed to be more seasoned.
We were off to the theatre with spare time. But it took 3 asks and 10 minutes to get the bill. But for a pre-theater 2-course dinner it was fine and bill was acceptable.

I really enjoyed my brunch there. I ordered pancakes with berries and extra eggs and bacons. The pancakes were soft and fluffy, with Bill's special syrup. It was supper delicious. All the stuff there were very friendly too.

Nice food and a lovely setting. I found it really weird that all the eating staff and greeters were white and all the BAME staff were doing the lower paid jobs - really obvious and uncomfortable disparity

I felt the manner of the Maitre d was rather offensive - almost rude, like he was doing us a favour by letting us sit down at our table. He told us AFTER we had sat down that breakfast was no longer available; our main reason for coming. Said we should have booked earlier but not politely. One breakfast dish was on the mains menu, which he could have pointed out to us in a more polite way. Other staff were very nice and their service was good and the food good.
