As Usual Will BYOB is GreatThis is the second time that we have been to Will and it was even better than the first time. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and they sat us immediately. The service was attentive but not overly so and the food was extremely good as usual. The highlights were the Kampachi crudo for a 1st course and then the Halibut for the entrée. The chocolate bouchon cake was also pretty tasty as well. We brought a few bottles of wine and some scotch and as usual the staff at Will was very accommodating with this. We will definitely be visiting Will again soon.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to the hype!well, anniversary or not, Will BYOB definitely lived up to the hype/reviews/etc.
the presentation of food was stunning. not only were the flavor profiles fresh, seasonal and complex there was an artist's touch to everything. Many things were highlights from that dinner but I'll just mention the various preparations of rhubarb, pickled, shaved and candied and the Poulard 4 ways! thanks so much. we'll be back soon!
and the next day, Chef Christopher emailed me to hope we had a Happy Anniversary and thank us for choosing Will BYOB for such a special day! amazing! cya soon Will!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful and beautiful food.Wonderful and beautiful food.

Preparation of all dishes is creative yet perfectly hits the mark.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely dinner hereWe had a lovely dinner here for a birthday celebration.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very pleasant meal,We had a very pleasant meal, Prix Fixe for Easter Sunday. Wonderful array of flavors, very colorfully presented. Staff was very accomodating, giving us a space in the corner large enough for my granddaughter's stroller to fit, where she slept thru the meal.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAn A FOR EFFORTWill trys very hard but in my humble opinion doesn't exceed at all levels. Small menu, small place, small portions, not too cramped, and not too noisy. Ok, the food is different in a good way. Very trendy, very deconstructed if you will. Ingredients and combos that you can't quite figure out. Our appys and entrees were all very good. Hen of the woods mushrooms are great. Dessert was a let down compared to the rest. I ordered a lemon meringue pie dessert which once again was deconstructed with basically a lemon bar with no crust, some raspberry sorbet and a few other things. The original would have been better. Kind of like a choccolate chip cookie. Hard to beat the original. You play around with the recipe too much you end up with....?3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative, artistic and thoroughlyInnovative, artistic and thoroughly delicious food crafted by an extremely talented chef. Excellent and well-informed waitstaff add to the overall experience. One of the best meals I have had in a long time.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA culinary symphonyThe favors of each ingredient were distinct and stimulating like no other preparation we have tasted before. Fresh and local have been cranked up big time in the Will kitchen!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectWe really loved this restaurant. From the moment we stepped through the door, the staff made us feel like we arrived at a friends home for dinner. Seating is tight, and the diners around us were so pleasent to talk to. Everyone around us were repeat diners, so we knew we were in for a treat. The small menu has a great choice of different and unusally prepared dishes. Our meal was excellent. Parking is a challange (it is in South Philly) but don't let that keep you from trying Will BYOB.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I truly enjoyedMy wife and I truly enjoyed a dining experience at Pumpkin some time ago and read about its' wonderful chef, Christopher Kearse, and his creative, dynamic flair. When we learned that he opened Will, our interests were peaked as we wondered what new level he possibly could ascend to. We were not disappointed. On a cold, cold Spring night, from our sincere and genuine greeting, warm, friendly, and attentive service, and exciting flavor filled appetizers, entrees, and desserts, our experience at this resplendent restaurant reached a new and dynamic high. Every aspect of Will was flawless and executed professionally, and now sets the bar to measure other restaurant dining experiences by. Well done!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticAbsolutely one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia. Not only is the food amazing, but the wait staff is extremely friendly and they are happy to make any accomodations that we needed. I love going to this place.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalDinner at Will was exceptional. Every item displayed careful attention to coordinating and complementing flavors and textures, from the squash soup with slightly crunchy quinoa and woodsy fresh greens, the subtle but effective use of pickled radish and the remarkable just-right done-ness of the poached salmon. We were there on a Sunday prix fixe evening. Although foie gras was not on the menu that evening, the chef happily prepared an extra course for us, and it was exquisite.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitress, Jennifer wasOur waitress, Jennifer was fantastic. The food was the best I have had in the city in years. Extremely lively inside, which our party loved.
