After our first visit in September I couldn't wait till we were back in Manchester and it definitely didn't disappoint. The food is freshly cooked and the atmosphere is lovely, it definitely doesn't feel like you're in the heart of the city. We will be back, though maybe a Bill's a little closer to home.

Beautiful restaurant on the surface (decor / helpful staff upon arrival & when interacted with) downfalls unfortunately there's quite a few: not much spacing between tables so you fall into others dining experiences (loud / shouting / rowdy) cocktails are over priced as not presented aswell as other restaurants within the area and lack alcohol. Staff friendly and accomodating on approach however not around when you require further assistance (possible desert / drink / bill waited close to an hour after the meal had finished to get attention) meal - fair, we had burgers one was beef, asked is we liked medium / well done, requested to be well done but it arrived like charcoal (burnt / hard) we also had buttermilk chicken which again was fair, toppings are standard no taste / flavours to them, the only flavour came from the accompanying sauce. Poor experience unfortunately, would we go again - no.

Loved our meal at bills. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. Lovely lively atmosphere. Didn’t like the 12.5% service charged added to the bill though. I’ve always worked in hospitality and would never tip or expect more than 10%! I was planning to tip anyway but it took the nice feeling away from tipping. Felt very American and I felt uncomfortable saying I wanted to take it off. Negative end to a nice meal

The restaurant was very cold, the service was OK. Looked to be a lot of staff but all bit confusing who was looking after our table. The food arrived OK but the eggs were slightly cold.

It was freezing outside but the decor and ambience inside Bills was warm and welcoming. The brunch menu was wide and varied so there was something for everyone. The food was fabulous from the presentation to the poached eggs cooked to perfection. The staff were helpful and dealt well with a busy restaurant.
There was a draft coming from the door every time it opened but with covid this was another positive.!

Restaurant accepted an after theatre booking even though their kitchens closed less 30 minutes after reservation arrival. Insisted on taking dessert order whilst we were just eating our appetizers and then when an expresso martini was ordered they confirmed they had already turned the coffee machine off for the night and it was not possible to make the cocktail. ???? cutlery and food dropped on the floor when plates collected and no body came back to clear it up. Sense of being pushed out the door. They should not be classified as a post theatre dinner venue. Poor experience

I had a lovely meal with a friend here. The staff were very friendly and helpful as we were quite late to our booking and they were very understanding and considerate and saved our table for us despite it being really busy. The atmosphere was very bubbly so made it a lovely experience, I would definitely recommend!

A server completely forgot to come back to us, then afterwards they kept doubling up; shows a lack of correct communication between them. However, they were friendly, professional & pleasant and mistakes do happen and they adjusted for it.

The food was very good, although somewhat just a little highly priced for what you recieve but it's an upscale place so it's a moot point.

The coffee and smoothies were reasonably priced and VERY good.

Will definitely go again.

Good choice of food, nice waiting team but ask for a table away from the door as its open most of the time making it a bit draughty.

Excellent food in a lovely setting. The young lady that served us (Olivia) was lovely, very friendly and helpful.
Overall a great evening.
Music being played behind the bar was a bit loud and monotonous but that’s just personal preference.
Would recommend.

Took over an hour to get food and at least 15 minutes before a server approached us to ask if we wanted drinks etc. I expect better service from city centre restaurants and came away very disappointed!

Unfortunately our food was stone cold so we sent it back. Service was slow. They did offer us a complimentary drink (coffee) but when the bill came it was all on along with a service charge. We were going to query it but after about 10 mins they came back with another bill with the additional coffee and service charge taken off. Very disappointing as I like Bill’s.

Enjoyed our meal at bills, lovely environment to eat food and drink. No idea what was in the food but it went right through me. Pwarrrr some suspicious smells after I’d finished, the poor missus started gagging. Decent time
