We chose Bill’s because on their website and leaflets said that they are continuing on with the 50% off. We thought we would try the restaurants food for the first time. When we arrived we were left to sit outside in a street next to a drain full of smelly sewage, the food was cold, the salad was very old, the steak was uncooked despite us telling the waitress that we wanted it well done. Bill’s then gave us a bill and basically we was conned. The food was not 50% off and the menu, the leaflets and website was very misleading. Every other restaurants we had been to issues a bill clearly adding the 50% off at the end. Bill’s did not do this they conned us in a very clever way. But the food was not at all satisfactory and the table we were given was very unsuitable. It was very sticky and hadn’t been clean and we asked for it to be cleaned and we was given some wipes. Absolutely appalling service.

This is a good "go to" restaurant. The staff are always welcoming and the food is always of a predictable standard. Good value for money as well.

It was a lovely atmosphere! We got the buttermilk chicken burger with fries and the mac and cheese, plus a lemon sorbet for dessert and two AMAZING cocktails, The Bill’s Collins and Rhubarb and Rose Collins. The burger was huge, and the mac and cheese was a really good size portion. We could hear each other very clearly, the service was outstanding, if I wanted to complain about something it would only be the prices - just a bit expensive! Besides the prices, loved everything so would definitely go again. :)

Food was good although not as good as price tag. Staff were haphazard and slow but friendly and helpful. I did feel I could linger over my food, no one was trying to chase us out the door. Atmosphere was nice, low lighting and a pleasant hum of chatter. Toilets were not good, not or working properly.

Service was a bit slow but it looked like the restaurant was a bit short on staff. The food was however delicious and we had a great evening.

Bill's advertises as continuing the Eat out to help out but this is only on certain items. 2 inch long bone in the Fish pie. Eggs Benedict was fine but not at the premium price. I wouldn't rush back but at the same time, I wouldn't want to put anyone off.

A little confusion on entering as people stood outside asking a member of staff if they had a table free...but once we were dealt with all was good. Nice booth socially distanced. Service was good but could have been a little better. Friendly staff just a little slow - but I think this was die to it being a Saturday evening and more people are starting to eat out again. Great food as usual.

Took my daughter here for a meal before she went off to Uni. Loved the decor and the ambiance. Starters were fabulous as were the puddings - especially the edible flower pot!
Had a lovely evening...

We had a lovely evening. Just before the ‘rule of six’ ... Good, fine food - nothing special but tasty.

The service was excellent, and the place comfortable and relaxed.

Food tasty, service sloppy. Had to ask for water 4 times before we got any and serving staff seemed to actively avoid making eye contact so it was very difficult to ask for things.

Bill’s, as a chain restaurant, is usually a good standby when seeing friends in Soho.

Eclectic decor, usually attentive service and reasonably priced food and drink.

Makes a change from our other regular drop-in, Cote in Wardour Street, which had not yet reopened.

Bill’s has dealt with Covid safety well and was, as always, welcoming and made for a pleasant evening with friends.

Bills in soho was perfect in every way and the staff were so friendly and helpful. A waiter even caught me when my shoes made me fall.

We will be going again.

Great food and service as always and very aware of social distancing and sanitising including foot-operated station at the entrance and extra on the tables

And the sanitiser smelled like tequila. Nice touch

Only one option for vegans on set menu. A veg wellington which I had last time and found out had 50g of fat which is unjustified. The waiter didn't know the menu, and I wanted to look up the nutritional information online and make an informed choice which angered him. Glad I did as the soup turned out to have 500 calories! They had sea bass and steak on the menu but couldn't include a healthy vegan option on menu. Waiter was extremely hostile and took menu away but I asked the other waitress if I could look again. They have to understand that being a vegetarian/vegan isn't having the same options as others, and it doesn't make sense that some oily veg and puff pastry is the same value as sea bass, but a cheaper falafel salad with much better macros isn't part of the deal. My friends were delighted with sea bass and scampi, whereas I only went twice and had the same thing as that was the only option. The set menu and normal prices were different as normal prices are very high.
Eating is such places is a bad deal for vegetarians. No protein and high fat at the same price your friends are eating sea bass! Other waiters were nice, and the space is beautiful and of course eating out is more social than about the food, which isn't ideal.

Ate lunch outside with my mum and it was a lovely experience. Food was great and I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The outside seating is new and also a good asset.

Food was cold, they didn’t make eye contact when taking our order and then brought out the incorrect drinks. Then asked for an iced coffee to be brought a like warm coffee with a few ice cubes in. Rude waiting staff and ridiculous service charge.

The team were efficient, organised, cheerful, sparky - the evening was fun and felt relaxed. Only an obvious change in portion size spoilt one meal 'more plate than food' as our friend remarked - a peculiar thing for Bill's be it London or provincial locations usually the experience is consistent. Nevertheless the booking was a success. The waiting staff worked really hard

James and the staff (except Martina) provided appalling customer service. I was made to feel not valued and was kept waiting for significant lengths of time. James was disgraceful and he told the rest of the staff to be nasty to me. An official complaint was given by me to Shaban the Manager and I requested that both an apology plus a warning be given to James who is a nasty troublemaker and certainly lacks even the basic managerial skills.
