Bill's Restaurant & Bar - York
We actually had 2 meals here the other day! We came for breakfast In the morning and ended up enjoying it so much we came for dinner too! I can't fault any aspect of our experience, staff were amazing and food was great! Good choice of drinks etc! One thing I did notice is that the tip was already calculated and included. I always tip anyway so I don't have a huge issue with it, I do hope however that the staff are genuinely getting this money. I asked our server at breakfast if she directly gets the money and she explained to me that it gets split over all the staff so I hope that is correct!
We had a fantastic experience at Bill's in York. Quality of food and service both outstanding.
Food was lovely but service was average nothing amazing
Lovely food and great service I would definitely recommend Bill‘a restaurant to a friend
Great food and service
Given we are in COVID times the restaurant could not really be expected to have a bustling atmosphere. The service was good and the food was decent. Everything was very clean.
Excellent food, fantastic service from attentive but not clingy wait staff. Drinks were lovely and fairly priced. Bit cold.
Descent food though quite dark at the table. Good value.
Garbage Food terrible
I ordered the 8oz steak medium rare and when it came it was more like a 4oz that was grey in appearance and when I cut it no colour and tasteless, my plate was swimming in water, this had obviously been defrosted in a microwave before being put on a grill. This came with a tomato and a small amount of chips. My partner ordered chicken skewers and rice that was stone cold. I should of complained there and then and wish i had, but we was in York for my partner birthday and didn't want to spoil the occasion. We finished eating quickly and got the bill and left and just tried to not let it spoil the occasion. After leaving I looked at the bill and we realised we had been charge for a jug of water and they had put a service charge of £10 without asking. This is the UK not America and if I want to tip then I should be asked. I'm not one for complaining but this was no way acceptable if a restaurant can't cook steak correctly then maybe they shouldn't be serving food altogether.
Food was fine. Service was good. Soft drinks were very expensive. Service charge of 12.5% was automatically added to the bill which is fine in these circumstances. However it was assumed that I wanted to pay the amount including the service charge, I was not asked when the server came to take payment. Maybe it is in the words that you are supposed to read when booking a table.
We had great expectations on arrival but the food was a letdown.
The staff were lovely but it was cold in the restaurant.
Friendly, attentive service. Varied menu & our food was lovely. Good atmosphere & it felt safe. Covid measured in place and done well.
Canny restaurant. Not a huge menu. Didn’t have any Whispering Angel wine left, and Prosecco glasses were short stemmed.
Service was good.
Food was great and staff were helpful and friendly.
On our short visit to York we ate at Bills twice, food was great and staff were lovely would definitely return when we visit in the future.
Lovely meal. Staff friendly. Beautiful chandeliers.
Understand due to covid things are in place to safeguard customers but felt anxious with the staff member who greeted at door. Restaurant was not busy with only 2 other tables present. Ordered pot of tea but came with no teabag in the pot! Staff took away and brought back with a single teabag in the large teapot, which made the tea very weak. Surely you can afford to put 2 teabags in you charge enough. Breakfasts were ordered and came quickly but the food was luke warm and even the waiter could hold the plates without any protection so obviously served on cold plates. Have been to various Bill's restaurants and this was the worst we have been to. Due to feeling anxious as soon as we arrived we didn't challenge the food, paid and left.
The service was spot on! However the food let it down. Burger wasn’t seasoned and the steak was definitely one of the poorest I have had. The overall place was lovely however. Maybe we just chose the wrong food but definitely felt let down.
Staff were very friendly and attentive, the food is amazing i would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food and service at a very reasonable price, quieter than usual due to covid but still the same enjoyable dining experience. Will be back
Our bill was incorrect to begin with (we were charged too much) then also a service charge added op top of 12.5% which made our bill around £10 more than what we actually had ordered food wise.
I would rather chose my own tip to give I think adding a service charge on is rude.
The food was okay and the service and ambience was great.
Food was nice, although I was put off as I visited the toilet before my meal. Absolutely disgusting, it was no “lady” that had used the toilet. Looked like the scene out of the film trainspotting, however I did report this to a staff member who assured me that she would attend to it. I doubt if this was something that could have been sorted in five minutes. Overall food was very nice but I thought the 12% service charge that was added to our bill is peresumptious. It’s not the USA and I think to add it when the food is already quite pricey plays plays a guilt tactic as people will feel obliged to pay it. I won’t be rushing back.
Great food & service.
Good precautions in place to manage the current climate
Busy Sunday brunch but service was very good and didn't have to wait long for drinks or food. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Food was very enjoyable, especially the vegan brunch.
Come to Bill's alot with my daughters always enjoy
Good choice for breakfast especially with family. Staff were friendly and attentive. Didn't
like 12 and half service charge being added to bill as would normally choose what to add myself.
Superb service & food. Very covid-19 prepared. Will certainly be returning.
Faultless food, customer service and overall experience. Will definitely be eating out at Bills again!
Lovely food and the service was fantastic. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful.
Food was lovely and we enjoyed our meals although charging us for water for the table when our bill was £100 seems a bit mean. Server came to clear table when we were still finishing food, think they were wanting a fast turnaround, brought the bill without us asking for it. Restaurant was noisy with loud music playing on top of a full restaurant. All in all it was generally a nice place, but wouldnt rush back
Great atmosphere. Fabulous service, and all felt very clean and safe. Temperature checked as we entered, hand sanitiser stations and social distancing/ face masks in place. Would definitely go back.
We had breakfast here on Saturday morning whilst in York for our anniversary weekend. We were allocated a great table, from where we could people watch (as requested) and were also given complimentary fizz to celebrate!!
The food was fabulous and fresh and the service was excellent without being obtrusive. Well done to all, especially during these crazy covid19 times!!
Very nice atmosphere, was really surprised with the food did not expect it to be such high quality and cooked to perfection.
Had a really good meal at Bill's on Friday night. Food and service were excellent. Covid rules were followed studiously - temperature taken, track and trace app used, strategically placed screens etc. Well done to all the staff.
Not anew experience but good as ever and the service was excellent. Lovely waitress friendly without being obtrusive.
COVID regulations followed well.
NHS app check in, sanitiser and temperature taken.
I met a friend for lunch. Everything was clean and organised. The food was great.
Always a good welcome and yummy food! Good distancing too.
Another great visit to Bills in York, great food and atmosphere, lovely warm greeting and great service at our table, made to feel very safe..well done to all the Staff, will be back again soon!
Food was amazing, service and atmosphere was great, what more could you ask for.
