We came for a birthday celebration. The staff of the Willet House was outstanding! Accommodating every wish, including cutting the birthday cake we brought with us and serving it beautifully on plates with home made whipped cream and chocolate sauce! The French onion soup was wonderful! The various salads were also great!
Do you like fries? Then the home made fries are a must!
We had a great time! We're looking forward to our next celebration there!

Great for steak
This is a reliable neighborhood gem. Great aged steaks prepared perfectly every time. The private rooms in the back and the tables in the bar area have the best atmosphere and character. Skip the dining room. Steaks are your best bet. But the crab cakes appetizer is off the charts as well. And you can't leave without a slice of the creme brûlée cheesecake. It will be devoured in seconds. Enjoy!

Good food and service
Nice atmosphere and service. Children's menu is a great deal. The food and service are consistently very good to excellent. The wine list is also excellent. We plan to put this on our "go to" list.

Expensive but qua;ity and portion size are suitable for the cost. The 3 course prix fix menu is well worth the reasonable price of $ 55 a good selection of menu items and does not skimp on portion sizes.

Willett House is our place for special occasions. The wine list reads like a book and it was very difficult to make a decision. The server was extremely personable and our wine and water glasses were continuously filled. The meat speaks for itself!

Great old standby
For a special night out or just in the mood for a nice night, we always go to the Willett House. Just note the influx of new restaurants/bars/theaters in the area make parking a big problem, even with valet.

Very Fine Steakhouse ....
Dining at The Willett House is always a safe bet. The steaks are always excellent and the lobsters are abundant and can be large. I dined here with my business partner and he opted for the roast beef which was served rare (as he ordered it) and he raved about it. My steak was very good and the dinner was a success. This is one of the finer steakhouses in Westchester and it certainly rivals the better ones located in New York City. I will return ...

Great steak and attentive service
We had bone-in rib eyes and they were prepared just right. we shared salad and shrimp cocktail, and the waiter made sure that they were divided on two plates. Generous servings of sides of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. The dessert of creme brule cheesecake was fantastic. Our waiter was always attentive to our needs and was extremely pleasant to talk with about the menu, the wine, etc. We had a table in an alcove near the windows which was very private and romantic. Made a great birthday for my wife.

The Door Opens At
We made our reservation via Open Table and received a confirmation e-mail for a 4:00 PM reservation for Sunday 11/10/13.. When we arrived at the restaurant the doors were locked after knocking the Manager open the door to inform us that he had attempted to reach us by phone to advise us that the restaurant doesn't open until 5:00 PM on Sunday. He was surprised that Open Table had allowed us to make a reservation for 4:00 PM. I was just that they didn't open until 5:00 PM. When we returned an hour later the Manager provided us with a drink on the house. This was a nice gesture however it really didn't make-up for the late notification.
The food was worth the wait and the service was outstanding.

Very Nice Restaurant.
This was our first time at this Restaurant and let me tell you it was very good. The Prices are a little high but it’s worth it the food was great. The service was not that great the waiter was overwhelmed for some reason but did an ok job. The restaurant is beautiful and has valet parking. Overall it was a nice evening out and we will go back again.

was my first experience. We had food, cocktails, wine. I only withheld one star because I didn't have their specialty which is their steaks and roast beef; the turkey was very good but turkey will ALWAYS be compared with home-made; for various reasons that wasn't in the cards this year but Willett House was a very good second-best.
I look forward to a second visit and will try what they REALLY do another time.
Oh...for me perhaps the two most memorable items were the lobster bisque in which the lobster was absolute perfection, obviously added late in the game perfectly cooked just as it should be...and the pecan pie, which was, most important for me with pecan pie, not too sweet, just right. Chewy pecan perfection. I WILL be back!

Wonderful place to dine
We were just there at Thanksgiving. Dining out on a holiday can be iffy but the Willet House was wonderful. The food and service was great and we weren't rushed. My family thoroughly enjoyed our holiday out.

Slip of service
Been going to the Willett House for over 10 years, this last time the service was not there maybe because our serve had to many tables or was new...but we found ourselves passing our wine bottle (other tan the initial pour) we never saw her till the check came. My past experience have always been much higher level of service.

Great steak at The Willett House!
From the top: Hostesses super friendly, like your fav aunt; ambience in room to left of bar was cozy, like eating in a vintage train club car-loved it!; 3 course dinner a great value @ $55-portions of lobster bisque, NY strip, house made warm potato chips, & dessert full size & very generous. Steak delicious & cooked to order. Big bread basket full of goodies, bypass the carrot cake-the other options much better & the key lime pie was to die for! Service could have been excellent-took off a star because at the end, took forever to get check, which is a pet peeve of mine.
