Its not what it used to be, so think twice if you haven't been to Billy's in a couple of years...no longer fine dining with table cloths and finely served food.
Best food that we ever had! I will give them 100 instead a 10!
Always came here pre Covid for the impeccable service, drinks and company. Glad to be back to enjoy the food and drinks
Shrimp overcooked. Bok choy overcooked. Restaurant decor tired. Halibut good. Pineapple slaw floating in liquid. Service so so.
Very busy day for Mothers Day, our server Avalon did a great job and had a wonderful attitude! Mai Tai's are always fantastic, food was yummy too.
It was a wonderful way to celebrate Mother’s Day the weather was perfect and the service was good food was excellent the crabcake was amazing and the drinks hit the spot!!!
Avalon was our server. She was beyond attentive even with it being busy for Mother’s Day. My son who is 8 adored her. She hands down made it a wonderful experience. The fish tacos were fabulous. We couldn’t really sit and enjoy the view on the patio. The plastic was directly in your eye view and the r had to lift up the parts were it separated to
Look through the view or stand up. I’m not exactly short. That was the only negative
Great service, drinks and food. The only downside is the valet is cash only and I don’t carry cash anymore like many people so major hassle to go to an ATM to track down some cash.
I have been craving the Mai Tais and finally got my wish! Everything we had was so delicious! We had the seared ahi tuna for a starter, and I had the burger with blue cheese, daughter had the crusted salmon, hubby the ribs. So glad I made a reservation because it was packed and I got the seating I wanted—their patio!
It’s always noisy at Billy’s, but that’s what we expect. Everyone having fun.
Terrible service !
The only negative is that my reservation was for 12:30 pm and they didn't seat us until 1:10 pm. We were told that Open Table over books and so they said we had to wait. I wish I knew that since my mom is 74 years old and there was no where for her to sit waiting.
Was an awesome experience!
We will for sure be back
Mai tai and service were tops and going on to our Fav list.
Was an excellent experience!! Food, service, people watching the best!! A perfect casual seaside dining experience.🌸💞
Too many people too close together! NO SOCIAL DISTANCING!
Food was good. Nothing special. View amazing. Service great.
Mai Tais were very good. Burger was a little dry. Overall, very pleased.
Great waterfront dining
What a fun spot-feels like Hawaii with a southern ca vibe!
We have not been back since the "pandemic" and we were glad to see that it is updated inside. The fish tacos were very flavorful and the drinks were good as usual, except a bit on the pricy side, even for Newport. We will be back.
Delicious food and Mai Tais on the harbor.
Patrons extremely loud. Hawaiian music amazing as well as the food. A little pricey
Not by any means inexpensive but,
-The food was excellent
-The service was excellent
-The staff was attentive and professional.
what else could you want in Newport Beach?
We have always LOVED Billy’s!!! But we were so disappointed for our first visit back since dining reopened. Everything has changed and NOT for the good ! The floors make the noise level high and conversations could be heard all over the restaurant.
The menu change was the most shocking disappointment. The previous menu was awesome and everything was delicious. The choices were enough to please anyone and were always prepared perfectly. The Sea bass was a 5 star item and a favorite. Those items are unfortunately gone now and were replaced by a run of the mill entree menu with one steak option and a few fish entrees with mostly standard burger /bar fair. The nice table cloths and feeling of a ‘special place ‘ with a Hawaiian vibe is unfortunately gone for the most part.
The swordfish was good but came only with a whole baby bok choy chunk and nothing else. The previous menu offered 2 sides but that’s history now.
I wish they’d go back to the previous menu. It was unique and well thought out and executed. This new idea you can have pretty much anywhere at casual restaurants, it’s nothing special nor is the ambiance anymore. I’m bummed. It was our go to.
Maybe it’d be good for lunch but I can’t recommend it anymore for dinner ( and i used to a lot and would send clients there)
There were large parties going on (extremely loud) and it took us actually getting ready to leave to go to the restaurant next door to finally get our server to pay any attention to us! She said the drinks took 30 minutes because they had to wash glasses!! (really???)
Took forever to get the food which was very marginal for the prices. ($19 burger not cheap) Our friend who has NEVER complained in the 25 years we've eaten with him said it was the worst burger ever...totally uncooked, but he isn't the type to send back so he sucked it up. The server did get more attentive later...she felt bad as it got closer to "tip time".
We all agreed we'd never go back again.
We enjoyed the food. Service not quit as expected. Slow and the meals didn’t come
at the same time.
Great beach burger and the best Mai Thais! Fun lunch spot.
It was pretty l loud on that patio / dock area.
Drinks were good.
Always a great destination for any occasion. Next to the water, the view is nice with boats in the harbor. Easy menu with delicious seafood and service is friendly and efficient.
The service was so so.
Halibut was dry. Everyone else’s food was awesome. It’s very noisy but it’s kind of that type of atmosphere. Host was awesome. Great service.
Pupu plate for two was more of a pupu plate for one. Food cold. Club Soda flat for my Vodka Soda
The staff is wonderful. Our server was very personable, attentive and took great care of our party. The food runners were also lovely. Great food and drinks. The decor and location cannot be beat. Overall, a wonderful experience!
Amazing food & cocktails.
Love feeling like we’re on vaca here!
The menu was not the same and not much to choose from. Some previous items I loved were gone and the food didn’t taste all that great. I used to look forward to going there but now I don’t think I’ll ever go back.
Very different post pandemic. The menu is limited compared to the old menu. The food was not as good.
