Put some pasta dishes back on the m
My husband and I have dined at Willows a number of times and on several occasions have taken friends. The menu (food & wine), atmosphere and service keep us coming back for more. We've also celebrated several special occassions at Willows and the staff has always acknowledged the occasion verbally and with some special treat...it feels very personal. Count on us to continue patronzing and recommending The Willows.

Bring on the Brie!!
Food is always amazing, however, I had the salmon special this time and they gave me only a tablespoon of sauce after the waiter had gone into a long description of how amazing the sauce was. I ask for more on the side. Brie appetizer..amazing...and you can never go wrong with any of their beef!!

They accommodated our party
They accommodated our party of 8 by putting us in a semi-private room, which was great. Our waiter was great-- making recommendations, giving us opinion when asked between two entrees for several in the group. Ahi, scallops & filet, halibut entrees were lovely. Beet salad was enjoyed by many of us. We really enjoyed both the food and the service. Highly recommend.

Party Of Five: Loved It!
Our group had an excellent experience at The Willows! We brought our own wine to celebrate - someone from security escorted our wine bottles to the restaurant through the casino in case you want to do the same. Each course was delivered by multiple wait staff so everyone was served at the same time. We had such a great time dining and visiting that before we knew it four hours went by! Definately a great place when you want to enjoy your guests as much as the food. I had the scallop special as my entree: amazing!

What a surprise!
We decided to start with a drink and I will say to bar is beautiful. Great lighting on the glass shelves and a awesome look with all the tables and chairs. The drink list was INCREDIBLE. We had their strawberry infused tequila with kiwi and sweet and sour mix they make right in front of you, was so perfect. At dinner the crab cakes and waygu steaks blew our pants off. The lobster bisque and presentation was 5star. Their wine list is very well put together, very easy to read. The manager Rick came by and recomended his signature barrel aged cocktail and it was served inside an ice egg,OMG. It was fun talking to him and seeing how excited he was, hes got a gem no doubt. Everything was so impresive we'llbe talking about this restaurant awhile

Have been to this restaurant several times. Enjoy dining on outdoor patio (perfect for smokers!). Service is truly outstanding, and servers assure you are tended to! Food is a bit pricey for what is served, but good. Wines are way overpriced and should include more local wineries. Nice that they started to carry split bottles, since you are not allowed to take your left over bottle into the casino area. Recommend bringing in your own bottle, but Casino Security needs to escort you to the restauant, and they do charge a $15 corkage fee.
Overall excellent dining experience. It truly is the service that makes the impression!

We had a lovely dining experience at The Willows! It was not our first time and it is always special. We were cordially greeted and seated on time for our reservation. It is an Ala carte menu so it adds up quickly. Because we were going to the concert afterwards, we did not want to take any food home. The portions are ample so my wife and I shared a salad, lobster bisque and a Porterhouse steak. We did splurge on the dessert with the creme brulet and the bread pudding. The bread pudding is outstanding! The service seemed a little slow at times but the wait staff was always attentive to our needs. We will definitely return for another special occasion.

Best Dinner Ever!
My wife and I were celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary and I was told about Willows by a friend. The entire night at Willows from start to finish was top shelf (exceedingly great). We were pampered by our (I don't want to say waiter, because he was so much more). Gregory went above and beyond to ensure that my wife and I had the best dinner of our 11 years together that evening. Thank you so much for the experience and the wonderful memories. It seemed like time just slowed down for a couple of hours as my wife and I slowly took in each and every tasty morsel without the hint of anyone rushing us through to open a table for someone else. I will definitely be back and this time with a few of my friends so they to can enjoy!

fine dining in the middle of mayhem
great food, outstanding service(Justin and Sine) in the middle of this kind of trashy casino.steak tartar was yummy as was the shrimp app. wedge salad could have been crispier lettuce but nice touch serving it with cold fork. should have sent steak back for another minute on the fire but tasted great even if it was a little under for my taste. excellent bread pudding.. thanks for skipping the tired bourbon sauce and giving me straight up caramel instead. don't really want booze in my dessert. overall a great experience. there was one glitch. we were seated right in the doorway to the patio. hostess said that door would not be used but was used constantly and every time it opened we were chilled. 5p rez so all tables were open when seated.

A Great Anniversary Dinner
My wife and I celebrated our 34th anniversary at Willows. We had a private room, very romantic. Our waiter, Justin, was FANTASTIC. He guided us through the menu. His recommendations were spot on. Although we had the shrimp cocktail before (and had loved it), the shrimp was tough and not very flavorful. However, that was the only "knock" on the evening. Everything else we ate was great. The wine recommended by Justin was delicious and went very well with the meal. If you are looking to celebrate a special event, Willows is the place to be.!!!

If you ever questioned dining at a restaurant within a casino, do not hesitate any further. In a valley full of fabulous restaurants, Willows is one of the best. The food is beyond fantastic and the service of the staff and presentation of food makes you feel like you are their most important client. Want someone special to feel like a rock star, then take them here. Chef Renteria obviously takes great joy in his creations and the bar staff will create wonderfully delicious cocktails made with the freshest ingredients.

Always a great choice for dining
The Willows has always been my restaurant of choice when I want a fine dining experience. On July 9th. we opted to dine on the patio since it was a warm evening. It was enjoyable watching the sky change as the sun set. When it cooled off the heater was lit so we were comfortable. Our server Justin was friendly, professional and attended to our every need. The food was outstanding from entrees to desert. Their menu has a nice selection to choose from that meets dietary preferences. I personally enjoy trying their nightly special which this time was Chateaubriand. It was excellent and cooked to perfection! Don't pass up the opportunity to dine at The Willows.

We love the quiet ambience after the hustle and bustle right outside the doors.

Great dining experience
I have always wanted to try Willow's and could never get in as they required reservations, and so I planned my trip accordingly. This dining experience was at the top of my list, the service was top notch and the food was prepared absolutely perfect. I would go back again and highly recommend this to my family and friends. Thanks for the great Birthday dinner experience.

WE LOVED IT.
WE ONLY ORDERED SIDE DISHES AS WE WERE GOING TO THE CONCERT. FRANK (I BELIEVE) GRACIOUSLY SAT US. JUSTIN WAS OUR WAITER.... THE DISHES WERE D-E-L-I--C-I-O-U-S AND SERVICE WAS SUPER GREAT.. JUSTIN AND THE CREW WERE VERY ATTENTIVE, NOT ONLY US, BUT TO OTHER TABLES IN THEIR AREA. IT WAS NOT OUR FIRST TIME WE ATE, BUT MADE RESERVATIONS TO MAKE SURE WE COULD EAT AT "THE WILLOWS".... RECOMMENDATIONS ABOVE IS OUR RECOMMENDATION.... SURE ALL OTHERS APPLY.

Dinner before the show
This is a steakhouse. Noise level high, but conversations were comfortable. Food was tasty, but lots of salt..not salty. I recommend the corn side dish and the bread pudding.

Willows at Chumash Casino
The service was excellent, by both the waiter and bus boy. The waiter was very descriptive in describing the different types of steaks as well as some of the drinks. The food was very delicious. We loved the assortment of spreads for the breads. Very unique.

Fantastic Food & Service! I did not expect this types of food at local casino. Service Staffs were trained properly & outstanding service! I will definitely dine here more often when I am in Chumash!
