Bill's Townhouse Ratings and Reviews
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.
Service and meal were excellent, they offer traditional steakhouse options, with a modern twist on several of the appetizers. We tried several dishes (There were 5 of us) - all delicious and perfectly cooked. Highly recommend this place, especially for special occasions
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!
Everything was outstanding, from the welcome at the entrance to the conversation with Stephanie, the manager, when we were leaving. The food was fantastic! I had the beef wellington- out of this world. our waiter was very friendly and professional. These folks make you feel like VIP.
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.
Overall nice atmosphere. Feels pretty male with goat heads on the wall, but not off putting. Didn't do the bar downstairs, but felt very pubbish. Very attentive service. I had the pork chop with a side of brussel sprouts. Both good. Thick cut pork very well cooked. Not pink but not dry. Came with collard greens. A little salty but good. Brussel sprouts were good.
Overall pricing typical Manhattan. No desert, drinks vs wine, about $75/person including tip.
We loved Bill’s Townhouse. Amazing food and a very cool ambience. The music in the tavern was great, and it set the tone for a fun evening. Our food was excellent, and the steak was one of the best I’ve ever had. The manager was so friendly, and worked hard to make you feel right at home. It was my birthday, and they brought out a delicious cheesecake dessert at the end of our dinner. I highly recommend Bill’s Townhouse. We will be back, and I plan to spend many more special occasions here.
Thank you, everyone at Bill’s Townhouse for a wonderful evening and fantastic food.
We were disappointed in Bill's Townhouse. After a long day in the city, and a Broadway Show, we were looking forward to sitting and relaxing with some Margarita's and good food. The Margarita's were awful, mostly all tequila, so strong we had to send them back. A second round of Margarita's and they were just as bad. We ordered baked clams & shrimp cocktail. Ten minutes later we found out there was only one shrimp cocktail left, so we ordered it. Only to find 10 minutes later there were no Shrimp cocktails left. So a new appetizer order was placed, but came much later then our baked clams. To the restaurants credit or our waitress, she did take off the Margarita's off the bill and gave us a free appetizer. Manhattan re
Warm and welcoming - Love what the restaurant did with the upstairs. Downstairs is a bar, with a piano player, upstairs is beautiful room that is warm and inviting. Nice space, food was very good, I had the octopus appetizer, it was fresh and tender and the greens that it came with were also well dressed and delicious. The night we went it was quiet so we could actually hear ourselves speak!
The two bartenders downstairs are old, cranky and obnoxious. They ignored patrons and waitstaff so that they could talk to each other. They acted as if they were too good for anyone but themselves. The waitress upstairs was delightful. Don't order the bacon, it's just two big slaps of pork fat. I recommend the pork chop.
Overall a major disappointment. Expecting a more upscale setting. Service was nonexistent. When we did see the waiter he acted like he didn’t want to be there. The food was okay. The by the glass wine menu is a joke. It was supposed to be a birthday dinner for my husband Bill. It was a disaster
What a find.
We’ll definitely return when in NYC again.
The place itself, the service, the food were all superb. Nicely paced meal starting with the best ever mandarin vodka and tonic, the house made noodles w/sea salt and butter, Bills salad, salmon, the halibut and the yellow cake (butter) were scrumptious.
Me and four friends went for my birthday dinner, and we had the best experience. The food was delicious (I recommend their house made egg noodles), our waitress Shannon was super friendly and attentive and the manager was very kind. I loved the atmosphere and the live music on the lower level. We would definitely go back!
