Food was cold, service wasn’t great, taking plates before people had finished reaching over people still eating. Bacon was disgusting and mushrooms tasted really strange.

Quality of the food is always excellent and there are always healthy options. Cocktail was lovely too and it was very COVID safe indoors. I love going to Bill’s!

Table booked at 11, we waited 20 mins to be served for a drink/ Tea, and we had to get a waiter to be served!
Then took ages for our meal to arrive and had to ask a waiter where our food was?
Food got delivered to wrong table.
We only went for breakfast and pots of tea.

Overall very pleasant .vegan breakfast could have been a little more bulky. The hummus and acacado were both spread too thinly .

This visit did not reflect the experiences we had previously enjoyed. Very disappointing. It is very difficult post-lockdown, however, we expected better than this.
We were met by a member of staff who informed us that their card machine wasn't working - fine we had to pay cash. A bit of a 'snotty' welcome n'est pas?
A much reduced menu; so much so that we had difficulty choosing what we would like.
When the food arrived, it was less than appetising - a cold concoction piled on top of two tasteless pieces of fish all covering a mushy potato effort.
It was surprising that many tables were empty - not what we have previously experienced.
When the bill arrived 'a discretionary 12.5% service charge had been added - not warrantied in our opinion - credit where credit is due, but not on this occasion.

We got glassed of Prosecco as it was our anniversary, this was a lovely surprise. Food was very tasty and perfect portion sizes. Our server Freya was very friendly, welcoming, and smiley even through the mask! Would definitely come here again

The staff were great. The only issue was not being able to pay by card. Had to go and find a cash machine to pay which wasn’t ideal.

Thought the ambience of the restaurant was good. When brunch was delivered one of the portions was very small compared to others. We asked for extra portion of sausage and one sausage came. A portion of bacon was 2 tiny slices of streaky. Not worth the money. One of waitresses dropped tray of mimosas onto my husband and it was a genuine accident but he had to pay for the one they replaced it with. Not greatest customer service

I got the Bills brunch and the toast was cold. The rest of the breakfast is lukewarm. One staff member kept coming to the table and did not engage in any conversation which was odd. Service charge automatically added to the bill, which was not appreciated as the service was mediocre. Use to be one of my favourite breakfast spots, not in a hurry to return.

The worst service I have ever experienced. Asked for our order three times in five minutes after we explained we needed some time to read the menu. Then our mains were brought out twice, before we had finished our starters! Warm white wine and toilets that could have been cleaner. Avoid.

Service was very slow, we were waiting in total 1 hour and a half for dinner, it didn’t seem that busy. We were told we would be waiting 30 minutes. They added £7.95 as a service charge but we didn’t see that as appropriate and left a tip of £4.00, nice food when arrived.

We waited ages on the food which was absolutely terrible. I mean how can you go wrong with a Caesar Salad, lettuce wet, no dressing or Parmesan. The good thing about it was 2 absolutely excellent waitresses and I wish I took their name as outstanding service and having to take the flack for a badly organised chef/kitchen staff. Really disappointing for Bills

ran out of vegan burger (pretty much their only entirely vegan meal), ordered halloumi fries and long stem broccoli and chips, my girlfriend ordered mac & cheese & it took an hour. my food was cold, broccoli was raw. got normal coke instead of diet, waited 45 minutes for the waitress to bring a cheque and in the mean time no one had checked on us.

The meal was spoiled as my sisters meal had very sharp quite large splinters in the chicken from a charred wooden skewer. These were discovered after she had eaten most of the salad before starting on the chicken. Promised some focaccia bread ( didn’t want a replacement meal as I had nearly eaten mine and we didn’t have time to wait). Bread never came so felt the apology a bit lacking in sincerity and took a while for manager to appear both times we asked for them. Price of meal taken off.
Shame as food was lovely apart from that and service otherwise very good and nice ambience.
Will give it another chance as appreciate restaurants having a hard time getting back on their feet and up to pre pandemic efficiency. This could have been quite serious though. If my sister had swallowed the splinter it could have caused some nasty damage.

Very busy service….took about 29 minutes to get a drink so service was slow overall. Tea for 2 should have 2 teabags not 1….you are paying for 2.
Food overall good had to ask for more butter for toast..love Bills though despite this and will return

Went to bills in Liverpool based on past positive experience with other franchises. First chicken burger served to me was hard, woody and I struggled to chew through it. After reporting back to my waitress the manager assured me there was nothing wrong with the way it had been cooked and more to do with the kind of chicken they get from their suppliers. Making a mistake and correcting it is fine but he denied fault. Anyway he offered to replace the burger. The second burger was a lot warmer, this leads me to believe that the first burger I ordered had been sitting for quite some time. The second burger was somewhat more edible but by time it had come my partner had finished his meal and was waiting for me. We reported back to the waitress who suggested she’d talk to the manager and take it off the bill. Instead they deduct one drink and tell me that they know better as they have been working there for x amount years. Clearly they do not as as a customer I am leaving their restaurant dissatisfied, I am only in Liverpool for three days and they have ruined 1/3 of my opportunities to have a nice meal.

20 minutes after ordering I was advised my drink was unavailable. Took a further 10 minutes to get the alternative ordered. Overall about 45 minute wait for the food that was dried up as if sat under a hot plate for some time!!
Will not return.

We were really looking forward to going to Bills, unfortunately it was disappointing.
People were turned away even though the indoor area was very quiet.
The food took a long time to come out and was only warm on arrival.
A lot of the smoothies on the menu were out of stock.
For a fairly expensive breakfast you would expect a little more.
You couldn’t fault the friendliness and service of the staff, they were all lovely and friendly.

Such a shame to write this. My mother and I have always loved doing here when in Liverpool. This time wasn’t good at all. In fact, it was so bad that we cancelled our breakfast reservation for the following morning and went elsewhere! We were left waiting to be seated for ages - staff looked over but no one came to help us. I work in health care so was shocked when someone eventually came over and asked to take our temperature - he didn’t do it properly and he only checked the temperatures of some customers - we watched him let several groups in after us without checking. Why? He also wasn’t very welcoming - it didn’t feel like a nice hospitality experience. Most staff either weren’t wearing a mask or wore it beneath their noses. The food was ok, nothing special like it has been before. My butter was completely melted when it was delivered to the table - surely someone should have spotted that and put a fresh bowl of butter so that I could have spread it on my toast! No one came back to ask how we were and we couldn’t catch anyone’s eye to tell them. The price was ridiculous for the quality of the food. £54 for 2 breakfasts (one was missing some items and had melted butter), 2 coffees, 2 juices, extra toast and jam, and 2 Buck’s Fizz. It’s the first time I’ve added a Bill up to check the cost! Go to Browns up the street - much nicer, better service, and cheaper! I wish we had gone there on this occasion too. Sorry Bills, we won’t be back. Your service has massively gone downhill, your covid secure processes are extremely poor, and your hospitality is non existent. Bye.

Food was good but service slow. Only had 2 servers working and apparently one chef. So slow service not the fault of those working .
