    Our server, Dustin, was fabulous, very well versed on the menu, friendly, & unobtrusive. We particularly loved La Cachat (goat cheese spread) and the sea bass (Loup De Mer). Will definitely be back and we highly recommend this wonderful French bistro.

    Went with some friends last night and we both had not been to Chez Billy Sud in quite awhile. Food, environment and service as always was fantastic! It was too hot to be outside but we'll be back in September to sit outside as the weather gets cooler. Great value as well!

    I went early before seeing Hamilton with my sister in law. Host was friendly and sat us quickly, he even checked on us later in the dinner. Our server, Dustin, was fabulous! My champagne glass was never empty and his service was wonderful. Food was excellent. Loved the soft shell crab and escargot. We ended the meal with two Rose Windows, a dangerously good sparkling wine cocktail. Was a wonderful experience from top to bottom. Will be back soon!

    Food was very good — I’ve never eaten in a French restaurant where no wonderful crusty French bread and sweet butter was not served. Confit nice Loup de Mer well prepared but restaurant just wasn’t up to my expectations in terms of service and calibre. No small plates for sharing appetizers — poor wine list. I give it a B overall

    Chez Billy has been and remains my favorite restaurant in the city. I love everything about it from the food to the service and the ambiance. Everything is confident without being overdone, just perfect at every turn from the drinks to the dessert. FIVE HUGE STARS!

    Delicious! We enjoyed our dinner. We had a last minute reservation, but ended up with a nice table at the time we were hoping for. Delicious onion soup and green salad, followed by delectable bucatini and sea bass, as well as steak frites. We were surprised by a wonderful birthday treat in the form of a flourless chocolate cake that was not even on the menu. Lovely ambience, and great for conversation. Tables nicely spaced out so everyone has their privacy. Wonderful service, very attentive and friendly. Overall great experience. Would highly recommend.

    Four different meals all were great and nobody was jealous of the others. Sea bass, lamb leg, steak, and pasta(?) I think. My husband and I took his brother and our friend who were each visiting from out of town. We’d never been before - it was great.

    I love this restaurant. I hadn’t been in couple years. My only complaint is that on previous trips, I don’t believe that the 20% gratuity was included. I won’t say that the service was bad this time … but it definitely wasn’t the same as it was from wait staff not knowing what they were going to get. Not the same urgency to please when you know there’s a 20% tip coming and it kinda showed in the way the server was a little more robotic and less personal, (but not inefficient) which is unfortunate because CB is a personal kind of restaurant and space… intimate. But still… will always recommend this spot. Food is always interesting and perfect. Super cute spot, especially in the outside courtyard with good weather. :-)

    Our food was not up to Billy Sud’s high standards on this visit. The pork shank was VERY dry. (Was it just warmed up from a previous night? Was it due to July 4th weekend kitchen staffing?)

    I told the restaurant it was a birthday and they sat us next to the most obnoxiously loud table. The table was discussing really inappropriate topics for a dinner (STDs, medical horror stories, yelling at one another). The waitress apologized but didn’t offer any solutions (couldn’t move, no discounts, no free dessert etc.). It was the worst meal we’ve had in a restaurant. I could not believe they didn’t even ask these people to be quieter or at least not to be screaming about gonohrrea. Truly terrible.
