Willows at Chumash Casino
AwesomeAlways solid food an service! Would definitely recommend6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous as Always!I always manage to hit the Willows before a concert!! Amazing food, great wait staff and we sat outdoors this time and it was lovely. I usually try to get there by 6:15 so I am not rushed to get downstairs to the concert!! Its a must!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest 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!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial DiningWe 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.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerHave 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!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat 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 awhile5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMParty 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!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThey accommodated our partyThey 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.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBring 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!!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPut some pasta dishes back on the mMy 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.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
