Great find. Experiential in terms of decor and ambiance. Feeling like I’m dining centuries back. Loved the staircase and the narrow carpeted stairways, abundance of art, large tables, traditional bar and atmospheric private dining on 3rd floor. Menu was varied and the Cabernet wine very good. Overall a bit pricy but who cares when you are not rushed, find a perfect escape in busy mid town Manhattan and are served by handsome well dressed men. We girls don’t mind at all !

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner for our anniversary, and from the beginning when we were seated next to the candle-lit fireplace to our dessert, we were just constantly wowed! We started with two complimentary biscuits, then got the veal meatballs and the buttered egg noodles for an appetizer (mix them together, out of this world!), split their ribeye and french fries for an entree, and topped it off with a glass of port and some bitter yellow cake with a chocolate ganache sauce that was to die for. Everything we ate was perfected and delicious and we can’t wait to share this gem of a place! Its located in an old townhouse that allows its history to shine through. And the service was superb.

Excellent. Well done.

This is the second time I have eaten here. The venue is very cool and the service is solid. My burger the first time was good but this time I had the steak sandwich and it was terrible. Really fatty. I literally left it on the plate.

My daughter and I popped in for a late lunch during the snowstorm and Bills was cozy and festive. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. I enjoyed steak tartare that was the perfect lunch and my daughter still raves that the truffle fries she had with her sandwich were the best ever! Full disclosure, I tried a few and I agree with her! We lived in NYC for 10 years before moving to Philadelphia and are still trying to figure out how to be tourists in the city we love! Bill’s is the perfect spot- convenient location with a neighborhood feel.

Drove up to nyc for a couple of nights with my family of four (kids are 15 & 13) to see holiday windows and a show. Wanted a non-touristy place near midtown with awesome food and this hit the mark. Even my picky 13 yr old son loved the homemade egg noodles ‘app’ and chicken entree. My daughter’s Wellington was top quality (rivals the best like Antrim 1844, better than Morton’s) The place glows with charm and hit the target for us. We felt like the only tourists there. Expensive but Big highlight of our trip!

 (Miami)·Dined on December 12, 2017

Our waitress had 3 big tables and us, a table of 2. We were forgotten. Our $110 steak was dropped off by a busboy. In all other steakhouses we have been to, the waiter brings the steak and serves it. The sad part of this is that the steak was good. The sides were average at best. Top dollar deserves top service. We won't be coming back. Plenty of steakhouses we can go, where service is King!

This restaurant was like visiting a historic site. It's been decorated beautifully and left alone in its time period so it has a marvelus feel to it. The service was outstanding and friendly and for me that was a huge plus. The food was excellent. I had the egg noodles and the cake which I had seen were notable items on other reviews and they were both very good.
My husband and I both would return and highly recommend.
