Service was excellent and food arrived so quickly. Everything was delicious and not outrageously priced.

We went for my nieces 8th birthday after some shopping at American Girl. I picked this place because I have celiac disease. I had a burger & fries ... delicious & safe. Thank you for creating a safe place for us to eat.

Such a great little find!! Literally right across the street from the American Girl store and the Rockefeller Center tree. Burgers were awesome and service was super quick! Will definitely be going back when in Midtown area. Shakes are delicious too!!!

Bill had friendly staff, lively atmosphere and good food.
My only complaint was that the bathroom is too small for the size of the restaurant.

It’s was good but crowded, hot, and noisy. But overall everyone was reasonably happy, food was good. We ended up sitting at bar and cancelling our table because we got there a little early for reservation

They messed up both the kids meals and they made it correct but didn't take anything off or offer the kids something to eat while they had to remake their meals

All around excellent experience. It’s a loud, energetic place. However, great food choices, well executed. Would definitely visit again!

I went here with my daughter before the dress rehearsal of the Christmas Spectacular. We had a reservation, but showed up a bit early and they took us right away. I’ll start with the food.
Kids milkshake was ok. I ordered a beer and lets just say it wasn’t the cold beer I was hoping for. It wasn’t warm, but it wasn’t cold. Pretzel bites were meh. They had a weird coating on them. My daughter and I both ordered the mini b’s and honestly I could have made the burgers better at home and saved $30. Prices were decent, but food could have been better!! Service was good. Table cloths were ripped and when I moved the caddy that held the condiments, it was really dirty. Whoever cleans the tables must not move it to clean underneath. I’m not one to complain, ever, because I was a server for a very long time and did not enjoy when a table complained about every little thing, so hopefully this review will help the place improve a bit.

We happened to make reservations on Marathon Sunday but arrived very early for a 7; 30 reservation. The place was mobbed but the staff accommodated us to,a table after a 15 minute wait. Bill burgers are fantastic, beer is super. The prices are low for upper east side. Highly recommend it. 5 stars all the way.

Our 6 person group ate there after the NYC Marathon and what a great decision. Fantastic food, reasonable price point and we had zero issues getting seated. Would definitely recommend.

Really nice and attentive waiting staff. Food good. Ordered two burgers and one portion of fries to share. More than one portion would’ve been gluttonous!

Soooooo loud!!

Front desk - FAB she knew my name, took me straight to table.
Waiter- he didnt listen. We sent burger back.. he STILL hadn't listened!!! My son and daughter basically didnt eat. What is so hard to understand about asking for a plain burger.. not toppings. 1st off- he didnt listen.. 2nd time.. well?? I guess he couldn't care less or just simply didnt get it!!! A plain burger in Englisg English means only a nap.. nothing else; including no cheese melted.....

Made to feel welcome from the off. Fussed over my daughter who was made to feel centre of attention. Service was busy but always had time for us, had some great banter over UK football teams. Food cooked perfectly and the atmosphere whilst load had a real energy. So good that my fussy daughter who normally doesn’t like burgers wants to go back

The food was good, I would’ve ranked it higher if our server would have remembered we ordered. He was terrible. He was friendly and we had a good conversation and he talked about his kids but even though he wrote down his orders, he forgot both my sweet potatoes fries and my husbands regular fries. I ordered a martini and it came in a margarita glass and didn’t taste like a martini even though he said it was. We sent it back and I just changed it to a Moscow Mule which was OK. We ordered two chocolate and one vanilla shakes and it came with two vanilla and one chocolate. By the time the chocolate one came out 30 minutes had passed and they said they were behind on ice cream. It was still an OK experience and I may try it again with a different server.

Bills is a great place for burgers and drinks. I’ve been here several times and can honestly say that the food never disappoints. The variety of burgers is terrific - from basic sliders to the more robust burgers, with choices for non beef and veggie. The Impossible burger is fantastic as is the grilled shrimp burger! Who knew a burger joint could have something for everyone!

I have never had such a weird burger in my life. It didn’t even look like a burger. It looked like meat that was so badly smashed. Won’t recommend. Milkshakes was good though.

arrived a little before reservation and got seated promptly. server also came over quickly to take our orders and the food (veggie burgers & waffle fries) was ready pretty fast for how crowded the place was. Waited a little longer than I would’ve liked for the milkshake we ordered at the same time the burgers arrived, but it was pretty darn tasty. Was really pleased they had the beyond burger on the menu as a vegetarian option and they didn’t mind subbing that patty onto any other style of burger-with-condiments. Was there at 7pm on a Saturday and was glad we had a reservation. A bit loud and the downstairs felt sort of crowded, so not the super-nicest ambiance, but fine if you want a place where you can get a hearty burger without much fuss.

This is one busy place! It was super loud and busy, so I'm glad we booked reservations as I don't think you could get a table without one. The food was good and the service was okay; I'm sure our server would've been more attentive if he didn't have to serve the 10 other tables around us (he seemed swamped), but besides that we would be back again!

MUCH busier, noiseier than I expected for a Thursday night. Food was ok, waiter not too attentive. Drunk 40+ year old men at the bar screaming their drunk faces off the entire time we were there.
