Food was delicious, with a range of gluten free and vegan options available. The laid-back vibe was complimented by the music, provided by an in-house DJ. Drinks were also delicious and the staff were attentive.

I’ve been to Bill’s Soho many times before. Loved the place. But my last evening visit was disappointing. They had a DJ who cranked up the noise level on the music. I had to shout to make myself understood to my friends for 3h. The music was good but way too loud. This is a restaurant not a club!!!
Secondly we were sat in the vicinity of the entry to the restaurant. It was quite cold outside. Every time someone would enter or leave, there was a lot of cold air coming in. And this happened every 2-3 minutes. Staff were told to ask customers to not hold the door open unnecessarily but they didn’t pay attention beyond the first 5 minutes. My feet were freezing (I had boots on) and I had to wear my coat while sat at the table. It was colder in the restaurant than in the toilet area…
A shame as serving staff were nice and food is good. Will not go there again in winter.

I normally love Bills, but this visit to the Brewer Street Branch was like a very noisy zoo. Great that they're busy, but turning the music up to disco level on top of a crowded room was a nightmare!My friend and I were literally shouting at each other to be heard. People were 'dancing' in their seats! One really nice supervisor agreed with us and got it turned down a bit, but it soon went up to disco level again. My friend told another supervisor that she thought the music was too loud, to which the supervisor responded "Really? Do you think so?" and then walked off. Lovely customer service! Food and wine was good value for money, but really, this is a restaurant not a disco. I love Bill's but would never go back here. If you're over 35, you just wouldn't feel welcome.

Ambience and quality of food was very good though service was very poor. Requested starters were never served, some mains came without certain ingredients, and our server forgot to place our dessert order. Would visit again but keep an eye on the status of your food.

Service was slow later in the afternoon.
Food was okay but didn’t feel that fresh, lots of deep fat frying it felt. Maybe that’s just the things we ordered.
Probably not the best place for a quiet meal, lots of group and children.

Food was excellent but service was poor at best. Then to get a bill with £10 service charge on it was just an insult when there basically was none

Will recommend for the food but not the service

Service and attitude of staff need massive improved at with this branch. Always had excellent experiences and friendly staff but felt on this visit that we were putting the staff out by just ordering. Explained after slow service on mains we would like dessert but needed quite quickly as we had theatre tickets. Told ten minutes so ordered then After 25 minutes we asked to cancel the desserts as had to go. Staff member not amused and generally we just didn’t feel welcome. Can’t knock cocktails and food we had as was lovely.

We arrived early for reservation but maitre d was happy to seat us. We were positioned quite close to entrance and the door was open the majority of the evening due to it being busy/people cueing to enter; this created quite a brisk breeze. We were ok with so didn't ask to move tables.

The staff were clearly very busy but attentive and our particular server was a lovely young woman who was always available when required. The restaurant had a nice vibe with a DJ mixing tunes in the background. The food was good and I particularly enjoyed my pan fried chicken with wild mushrooms.

I was with a an old friend who I had not seen in 27 years and we were seated for quite some time. At no point were we being pushed or felt pressured to leave.

Overall, a lovely evening and without hesitation I would return again.

Good food and great settings. Booked for 6 people which we were very squashed in the back of the restaurant. Not much table space for all the food. Took us 3 hours to eat starters main and dessert. Service was very slow not many staff in. Staff were friendly and good but just slow overall.

I love Bill's but this wasn't quite up to scratch. The waitress messed up our food and drinks order and we had to wait a long time for our food. However, the team did bring a complimentary brownie and candle and sing happy birthday to our daughter which was a lovely touch. We were glad to be at the end of the restaurant away from the noisy part which would have been a little much for us.

The service was really slow, took 30 minutes for our drink order to be taken and over an hour for a breakfast order to arrive. When the food did arrive it was like it had sat on the side for 10 minutes before it got to us as it was stone cold and dry. Dreadful for the price, probably the worst breakfast I have had

Lovely ambience - velvet chairs, warm atmosphere and decor. Friendly efficient service.
Only downside - portions on the small side... esp the spiced cauliflower and butternut squash falafel bowl - definitely nearer to starter sized portion. My adult son had to eat my burger bun to make it into a sufficient main meal (we didn't have starters). Halloumi and avocado burger not that exciting either. However - spiced tortillas starter - substantial and recommended.
