    The restaurant is beautiful. The service was inattentive and slow despite the restaurant's relative emptiness and the abundance of staff members milling around. The food was just okay for the price (we paid $50 for 2 for breakfast when tax and tip were added in).

    We were there for breakfast/brunch. We tried the ricotta pancakes, kim chee fried rice & ham w/ grits. It was all decent food, but it took a while to get to us. Also FIVE DOLLARS+ for a non-refillable iced tea is ridiculous. Even if it's waikiki, that's over the top. I don't know if I would return.

    Early Saturday night, already out of two dishes, one of those being their only real fish item. Restaurant only about 60% occupied, service just ok, especially considering that the restaurant was relatively slow. Overall was ok, food was quite good but would not go back or recommend.

    Just last week I was lamenting to my husband that Hawaii did not have many places that had an interesting breakfast menu, everything here is about plate lunch style or maybe pancakes. This is like my prayers were answered! We went for breakfast and halfway through our meal we got on OpenTable to make reservations for two days later- it was so good. The food was so fresh and flavorful. All coffees are espresso based and made to order so no refills and that can get pricey if your big caffeine drinker. We were upstairs which is a bit calmer than downstairs but even so there are a few large loud groups that brought the noise level up. Still there are slightly different menu items in the downstairs part so I'll be back again!!

    This review is for our lunch experience UPSTAIRS and this was my first experience here.I was excited to see the openess of the dining room with its warm and natural colors.It was casual and easy on the eyes. We each ordered different menu items ranging from shareable (salt & pepper calamari), salads (chopped salad & salmon salad), classics (ricotta hotcakes) and pasta (veal & pork ragu pappardelle). All the plates were presented well and tasted good...but, not outstanding.It was brought to our attention that the ingredients are sourced fresh from organic and local sources. Simple, unpretentious food presented in a casual enviroment was accomplished here. Service by Chelsea was excellent for our group. I was delighted.

    Such a welcome difference from the numerous "steak and shrimp" places all over Waikiki. Beautiful, fresh, clean food inspired by an Australian vibe. Great service (Alexis is great) and a killer menu - we were only sad we found this place on our last night before flying home to Sydney and couldn't return. Will definitely be checking out Bills Sydney!

    A must visit to those who enjoy organic, unprocessed food, for those who are Aussies, felt like cooking from home. If I had found this place earlier, I doubt that I would have gone elsewhere for dinner, the food, cocktails and wines are superb as was the service.

    We went here two nights in a row on our Waikiki visit, first as adults date night, second time with two kids in tow. Both times we were blown away by the quality of the food and the service, particularly from the GM who went above and beyond to take care of us. Unlike most of the restaurants in Waikiki (many of which are big chains), they are not catering to the big food loving tourist crowd. Interesting, eclectic but entirely approachable menu that would rival any in San Francisco, where we live. We even went back for take out from the casual cafe downstairs to bring on the flight home. Love!

    Having grown up with bills I was excited about the corn fritters. I was bitterly disappointed. Nowhere near as good as sydney. Guess this is what happens when u create a chain and get money hungry. Service was very friendly though and ambience great. Coffee was fantastic.

    We went here for my birthday with my family and a few of our friends for dinner. Cutting to the chase, the waiter was neglectful, our waters were empty for half an hour, our food took forever and no one ever checked on us after our entrees finally came. We ordered one drink because no one ever came back to ask us if we wanted another. The others ordered a pizza, the chicken schnitzel, the ribs and the salmon salad and no one liked their food. So I guess I got lucky cause I ordered the linguine, and cream corn which was actually pretty good. Everyone else had an expensive, bad tasting, drawn out meal with poor service. We won't be going back.

    We were pretty excited about our meal at Bills Sydney, we saved it for our last meal in Hawaii. Upon arrival down stairs we met with the lady at the front who said we had to wait for a table (after making and confirming a reservation). We waited approx 10 minutes. We ordered our mains which were delicious and fresh, however it took 15 minutes for our plates to be cleared, another 10 for the dessert menu to arrive, another 10 to order (by which time we asked for the quickest dessert), and then half an our for the dessert to arrive. No one informed us of how it was going, when ordering dessert the waiter said it would be a few minutes. He gave us hot plates for a cold dessert. He gave us attitude when following up on our orders.

    Even if I reserved on 15Aug, my family went to Bill's Waikiki on 14Aug,2014 for lunch. Because we don't wait for the table at all. Every food were very nice, but as same as other waikiki restrauant, it was very high price, I mean expensive. The cost paformance is not good. But food are nice, I recomend to go to Cafe, better price than restrauant.

    We had breakfast here and was good. However, we did not care for dinner! The food was not as we have expected. We will never go for dinner, NEVER. My husband had pappardelle with meat sauce just okay. I had orrechiette with ricotta and tomatoes, disappointing, our guests had ribs which was horrible. It looked like it was boiled with hardly any taste, very bad. Our waiter suggested fish curry which was just average. I would not suggest you go for dinner.

    The cocktails were very average - without flavour and they looked stingy. The presentation of the dishes was pretty good but the food was poor. The pasta was dry and the curry over-salted. The chicken schnitzel was passable. Also the decor upstairs was akin to dining in a barn. Having said that, the service was good and the prices were reasonable.

    Food was tasty and well prepared with an interesting menu. It's what I'd expect to get in Sydney from a mid to high range restaurant. Service was good but as the restaurant is new (~4 months old in July '14) they still have a few teething problems but I wouldn't hold this against the overall experience. Will visit again.

    The waiter seemed too busy to care about our table even though there seemed to only be four other parties there. They were out of the chocolate frappe, the edamame hummus starter, and the banana fritters. We were there at 1 so I don't think we were too terribly late. The waiter's reasoning for being out of the frappes was because they were out of chocolate sauce, which seems like it'd be pretty hard to run out of for a restaurant.. In regards to service, the waiter did not seem to care much about serving or our table. The food did not seem at all Australian to me outside of the pavlova, and it seemed overpriced for what it was. The ambience was nice, but was very hot despite the fans. Perhaps eating here for breakfast or dinner is better.
