We enjoy the brunch menu! There are many different options whether you want breakfast food, lunch, sweet, savory, or healthy options. The only draw back is the hot food was only warm at best (not hot). The value is a bit expensive because I’m not a big eater. But the variety makes up for the cost. I do recommend making a reservation or the wait time may be long.

Beautiful, comfortable dining room and not too noisy. I had the Scottish salmon and it was fantastic. My partner had the roast chicken, and that was very good, too. Excellent wines, although it would be nice if there were more than one chardonnay on the menu (and if one was priced less than $19 a glass). I had the Cotes du Rhone, and it was delicious with the beurre rouge salmon. Chez Billy lived up to its reputation, and I look forward to returning for dinner after their renovation is complete.
