Had our table ready even though we arrived 15 minutes early. Our server was very friendly and our burgers were excellent, just as our previous experiences.

Crowded Sunday night during Holiday Season. We had reservations and arrived early. Was very pleased when the hosteest who was friendly and seated us with no wait time. Our server was very nice and attentive. We expected a long wait for the food only because of the amount of patrons. Not the case at all. Our food was served quickly and was quite tasty! We had the brussel sprouts , buffalo chicken sliders, onion rings & bill's burger. All good sized portions. Although the noise level was "high" and the men's room on the main level out of order - we had a great experience and would go back.

Seems like this time of year they are trying to pack them in without enough staff to handle the load. Men’s room was overflowing with backed up toilet. We waited 19-15 minutes for anyone to take a drink order.
Once we got started, things got better, and the burgers are still great. Slowed up again at the end. Has always been great but will probably look around for an alternate.

Despite having a reservation my party of 8 was not seated at one table but instead at 4 high top tables sort of pushed together. The hostess was rude when asked if there was any other option, as we did have a reseravation -she said now. It made for a chaotic dining experience!

After fighting the crowds of Rockefeller Center we had an amazing experience at Bill's with excellent food and excellent service. I've been before and they always knock it out of the park.

We’ve been coming to Bill’s Bar and Burger for the last few years before we go to see the Christmas Show. This year we were smart and made a reservation! It’s a great New York experience. The food is great and the servers are quick and very courteous. We sit back, have some awesome cocktails, and check out the numerous tv’s and all the different sports channels. We love it!

Excellent service. Food disappointing. English Muffin hard and "old", difficult to cut. Timing was terrible. Brought soup and salad and immediately served burgers. Not the usual or typical experience this time.

Bill's Bar and Burger is an amazing, super efficient, delicious restaurant. We were there on the day of the tree lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Center and the city was exceptionally crowded. We walked in, gave our name, and were ushered to our table immediately. The waitress was at our table to take our drink orders within seconds, explained the specials, and came back later to take our order. Our food arrived hot, and our order was complete! Our waitress checked on us and filled our water glasses frequently. The thing that most impressed me was that never did we feel rushed so they could turn over the table especially when there were so many visitors to the Big Apple on the tree decorating evening. THANK YOU Bill's Bar and Burger--you set the bar high for great food and service!

This is the third year we have gone to Bills' Burgers before going to Radio City for the Christmas Spectacular show and again it has not disappointed us. The food was very good and we will go back again next year.

Overall poor experience, really noisy tables so close together waiter basically sitting in your lap everytime they squeeze past, and we only saw our server twice all night once for the order then with the check, another server thankfully gave us water, dirty dishes from appetiser left on the cramped table even when the mains where brought out, good for a burger but if you want service and the chance for conversation over the noise look elsewhere

Great burger & friendly staff. Sat us early and we had a reservation. Crowded & fairly noisy, but you catch that vibe walking through the door. Priced very reasonable...considering you're in NYC.

Our party of five headed to Bill’s after a show at Radio City Music Hall. We had a reservation and were seated almost immediately. Hubs and I shared a burger. Kids had salads and/or burgers. Happy, full bellies all around. The atmosphere was energetic and loud and the live music was a nice touch.

Dined after a show at Radio City Music Hall. Timing was perfect. Wait staff was very efficient and people friendly. Food was well prepared and fairly priced by NYC standards. There were 7 of us, including a baby, and we had a great time. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Good burgers but typical tourist trap/midtown pricing....great location especially at Christmas but make a reservation for lunch or you will be waiting forever

With a residence a block from here was our first visit, probably our last.
I arrived early, checked in with the hostess said I had a reservation and was waiting for the others would be at the bar, she said fine.
The positive, good bartender, was at the bar until the rest of the party arrived.
I saw the rest of the party heading to a table despite them asking I was here and had a reservation. Not expecting perfection here but I mentioned it and they did to.
A gin and tonic was ordered; well Gin which when we got the bill was Hendricks??!!
Server seemed inexperienced, perhaps new. Food was ok but the service took away from it.
With so many options this is an establishment we can easily pass by. Restaurant operated by Landry’s according to the menus.

Perfect spot to meet colleagues and friends for lunch. The services is fast and friendly. The menu is varied so veggies, meat eaters, and dieters can all find many choices on the menu. We got in and out for lunch in under an hour and no one was rushing us. For a Rockefeller Center restaurant, I was surprised to find an affordable restaurant that did not seem to take advantage of tourists.

We waited 5-10 minutes. We did have a reservation. Service started out awful - no ice in water, after waiting forever only a few drinks came out because they ran out of glasses, he forgot if he took our order. However it did improve. Decent food and not too expensive. Milkshakes were the best part.

The food was honestly not good at all I was so sad an shocked . An I am not a picky person or critic at all ... disappointed with the mini burgers my grandmother ordered , no lettuce tomatoes nothing ? Looked like a very bad 1$ menu McDonald burger . An I had grilled chicken an later that night I got sick an threw it up so I’m certain it was bad . It was not a stomach bug because the minute I got all that stuff out my body I felt fine :(
