  • Pretty good, not amazing

    We came to celebrate for a special occasion. It was good, although I'm not sure I would call it a true special occasion kinda place (even though they placed a congratulations note and some decorations on the table, which was a nice touch). The bar area was really tight, and the servers almost seemed annoyed to have to navigate through the people waiting to be seated (it was really crowded). The hostess was in a rush to seat us even though we arrived well before our reservation time (probably because the bar area was so crowded... but by then we were comfortably seated and in no hurry). Our server was a really friendly lady with lots of local color. Overall, it was a nice experience. I would have given it 3.5 stars if that was an option.

    Greatful for the opprtunity to try this otherwise pricey restaurant during Worcester's restaurant week. Extensive wine and Sushi menu, I am not a big fan of either. Not so sure I would pay regular menu prices for the experience otherwise.

    Willy's is justly famous for its steaks and the like, but we decided to try its sushi for a change. It was Worcester Summer Restaurant week and two of the six or so entrees were sushi. I tried one and my wife the other. Both were excellent and an excellent change from the usual -- at least for us. I'd give it a try when you visit Willy's, or if steak is definitely your thing you won;t go wrong with that at Willy's either. (As an aside, having six entrees for Restaurant Week is highly unusual -- three is the norm. Good for you Willy.)

    So impressed! Sometimes places skimp on quality when participating in restaurant week. Please to say that was not the case here. I had very nice sushi dinner. My husband and an amazing steak and mashed potatoes. We got crab cake as an extra appetizer and they were huge and as good as any in Maryland. Service was excellent. We were so pleased to try this palce ans we will be back.

    Took a friend of the family to thank him for keeping an eye on a family member. He chose the venue, as we usually go to Legal or the Prospector. Very pleased with the location, choice, service and food quality. Somewhat pricey but worth it.

    Dined on 8/10/2014
    We dined during restaurant week. There was 5 of us. The food was very good. The service was good .....too good. We were in and out in just over an hour. I felt rushed there was no time to chat between courses, savor out cocktails as the next food was delivered as the last forkful was swallowed. It took away some of the pleasure to feel they wanted you in and out.

    I have been to Willy's and I always look forward to going there. The service is usually outstanding but on this occasion it was not. We were one of maybe 5 tables at the time (4:30pm) and out waitress was very unattentive and left both my plate and my girlfriends plate empty in front of us for about 15 minutes after we had finished. Other wise the food was excellent and I would still return to Willy's in a heartbeat for the great food

    Recently moved to MA and this was my first time dining at Willie's Steakhouse. I was very impressed with the variety of food choices the menu had to offer, as well as drink options. The service was extremely good as well! Definitely will return to Willie's Steakhouse, and have to add to one of our favorite places to dine list!

    We hadn't been to Willy's for a while, not for any negative reasons, just other restaurants that are more convenient to where we live. With the restaurant week deal, we figured we would go back. My husband said it's the best meal he's had in a long time! We both ordered off of the restaurant week menu, which had a great variety. My husband got the steak, and I got the sushi- best of both worlds! We were reminded of how amazing the food is at Willy's, and will be making the trip more often.

    The restaraunt was busy this night since it is a popular weekend spot and not a huge place. Got lucky and found a spot for two at the bar, around the corner which is essentially very private and arguably a better spot than most of the tables. Very intimate and quiet which makes for a nice date spot. We were situated where we could watch the sushi chef perfrom his impressive magic and despite sitting at the bar had full, attentive service. Overall, a great night and the food was outstanding as well. Will absolutely return.

    Service was great - had spot on advice and had no problem with add ons or twisty requests. Attentive but not a fixture. A little loud for a Tuesday night - loud at times, but that could have been the group behind us. It was a special occasion and I did make a note on the Reservation, I would have liked to have been seated at a better table. But romance is in the company .... Sushi and Maki were great !!

    While visiting family in Natick, MA we spent the day at the Tower Hill Botanical Gardens. Willy's Steakhouse was a very convenient place to stop for a tall cool drink and dinner on the way home. The service and the food were great ... everyone was very happy with their order. Very kid friendly, they moved us to a table that better accommodated a high-chair. Prices were a bit on the high side, but worth it. Decor and ambiance were a bit dark, like a cellar pub, but staff and a lively crowd offset that. Overall, we'd be happy for a return visit.

    My siblings and I took my fathers here for Fathers Day and had a great dinner. I really like the variety of the menu, which had all your steak house classics, to some more inventive dishes, as well as an entire sushi menu. The food itself was great. Of course, its on the expensive end, but the product and service was great.

    half of the group ordered from sushi menu- and was very pleased and superstuffed with $85. worth of food. half ordered from standard menu---nothing spectacular; adequate.--the Beef Wellington ON TOP of pastry was a disappointment. Asian vegetables- mediocre--too heavy on the sauce. Very pricey.

    My husband and I will be frequenting Willy's much more now that we have discovered that Kenzo is back behind the sushi bar! He is the best sushi chef around and also a fabulous host. We have truly enjoyed our past two trips to Willy's for sushi. Start with the "Nutty Kenzo", enjoy some high quality sashimi, and you will not be disappointed.
