It is difficult to get a table off the cuff from this chain and I was expecting the experience to be amazing when we finally got a table, but it was very ordinary. I loved the styling of the restaurant but the service was slow and not very attentive. I think if they sped up a bit they would get more covers and sell more drinks if they communicated more. The food was nice but nothing special. The music played very grating (reggae/scar).

On arrival, after booking weeks in advance, it was if the staff didn't believe us, kept us waiting outside and in for 10 mins with no communication got one order completely wrong and the pancakes were very dry and I don't class one chopped up strawberry and 4 blueberries as fruit

We enjoyed our first visit to Bill’s. Music was really good and not too loud to chat. Quite a limited menu but there’s a benefit to being really good at a few things. Food was tasty but could have been delivered to the table hotter.
Cocktails tasty but limited in choice and I was unable to have my first choice. The staff were friendly and quick with requests. We will go again

We arrived fifteen minutes early, on a cold evening, expecting to be allowed to wait by the bar, at our table, or at least inside somewhere. Instead, the head waitress (I believe) told us that we were too early for our reservation and that we would have to go away or wait outside for fifteen minutes, before closing the door, quite literally, in our faces. No smiles, no flourishes. We were shocked but wandered around in the cold, as we were told, and when we turned up on time discovered that the couple in front of us, having overheard our conversation, had also been met by the same rude treatment and had been taken aback.
Once in the restaurant, all other members of staff were polite. However, dietary options were beyond poor, especially as Bills is usually more accommodating. I am dairy intolerant but eat meat, but was told I could only have vegan options. Food was nice but my choices were disappointing!

had a lovely meal and the staff were so attentive. the only problem was our table was very close to another and my son sat very close to the people at next table and the other side of our table was an exit that staff used and there was a lot of coming and going which meant a draft and spoilt the ambience.
The food was delicious

the only pain point was the location of the table, close to the entrance and you could feel cold air every time someone opened the main door.

We booked very last minute and luckily got a table. The waitress was lovely, friendly and very helpful. Have been before and would definitely go here every time I visit Covent gardens. The service was slightly slow but we were there for lunchtime and just before Christmas so was very busy.

We enjoyed the choice of food available; the quality of the food was good, the fish pie was quite a small portion but the steak and eggs was very good. We went to Bills at lunch time before going to a matinee performance at the theatre and would have had dessert but our server, whilst a very friendly affable person was not very attentive so we ran out of time to have dessert.

Vacation from Boston. Go someplace else. It’s impossible to rate the service because it was nonexistent. Food was fine, we had the mojo chicken skewers. Ambiance is shabby chic
