I always start off annoyed if a menu that is published on the web is not what you see when you arrive.
Although they have made an attempt at a local beer menu, they picked all of the poorest brews, save one. Guess which one they were out of?!
Food is pricey and portions are short.
Great ambience, great food and overall very positive experience. Highly recommend Willows Awake
food was mediocre. Waitress was not friendly or attentive. Very loud atmosphere and many staff were not wearing masks.
I really want to love this place, but they can’t seem to get out of their own way. Waited 30 minutes and finally decided it was time to flag someone down to wait on us or else we would be waiting forever. The owner came and took our drink order, and still no waitress came. Our meals were supposed to come with salads, they didn’t. We had to ask for them and they came about halfway through our meal. It was about an hour before we placed our food order. The food was great, but this place has some serious issues they need to work out. Very disappointing for a $200 meal (nothing was comped) and we didn’t even get an apology for our wait.
We loved this place and would definitely go back! Everything was wonderful – the food, the atmosphere, and the service. It was a bit loud because there’s really nothing in there for sound absorption, but it was also Mother’s Day and the place was packed. I think on a normal day it would probably be much quieter
Consistently superior service, excellent food, and a stunning setting. This is one of our go-to spots!
What a gem WillowsAwake is! The venue is absolutely wonderful and portion size as well as presentation is perfect. We had a wonderful (second time) dining experience and will be back!
Great indoor or outdoor seating with fire pits. We will be back!
Awesome restaurant for a special time. A bit expensive, but great food and service. Highly recommend!
This was our second time going to this beautiful winery. Wonderful food and fantastic service. It’s just that little extra that makes a difference. This will be a place that we will go back again and again.
breakfast prices are too high but food was ok, service was excellent and it was nice to see the covid precautions in place
We always try to get here for dinner every time we're in town. What an amazing addition to the local dining scene. We love it!
Pulling up to the winery, the grounds were beautiful. It had a great ambiance and vibe to the space. I love the modern rustic feel. Our food came out quick and was delicious! We will definitely be back very soon!
Our first visit to this restaurant and will definitely be back. Atmosphere is relaxed and wonderful, food is prepared exquisitely and the service is impeccable. This may end up being one of our new favorite go to spots. The menu is limited but honestly the preparation is so spot on that you are in for a treat with no matter what you order.
Breakfast was excellent.?Will definitely go back . Next time lunch/dinner!! Waitress was awesome.
Thank you Rita!
My meal was very good, my wife’s fair. Little pricy but atmosphere justifies the expense. The menu was limited, a few more choices would be good, particularly adding a seafood option. I would recommend, particularly for this area which has nothing like this.
Our experience was not exceptional from start to finish. I’ll give them one more chance. For a high priced, special outing....Willow’s Awake proved to be only over-priced! Complete disappointment!
Delicious Sunday breakfast with my husband
Very happy you enjoyed yourselves. Please visit again soon!
Beautiful setting in a vineyard with outdoor seating featuring a beautiful view and a spectacular indoor “farm to table” style restaurant complete with an industrial, stylistic architecture.
The food was outstanding continuing the farm to table cuisine with a large wine list featuring a few of their own wines. Portions were not large and very tasty. Although the menu is a little pricy, the quality of food, service & ambiance makes it all worth the money This will be a restaurant that we will return to on a regular basis and bring out of town guests to also.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us your thoughts- happy to hear your kind words. We value this comment and cannot wait for you to join us again!
The portions are small for what you are paying. The noise level inside was loud with lots of echo. I would choose to dine outdoors next time. I'm willing to give it another try.
After reviewing your dine in date, we were hosting a small private event in our loft space that was contributing to the noise level. We are aware the noise level when hosting such event is more energetic and are promptly researching more sound proofing to our restaurant. We do offer a fresh garden salad along with every entrée. Our menu consists of quality ingredients and is made fresh daily. Please trust that we do have comparable prices with other fine dining establishment's in the area.
This was our second visit to No10. We visited on Easter Sunday. The staff is very kind and was extremely helpful with their accommodations. We wanted to take my Mom out for brunch but we were only comfortable sitting outdoors at this time. They set us up on the porch with two heaters and blankets. My Mom was very comfortable and the staff made it a great experience. The food is amazing and the wine is too! We also interacted with the owner on both visits. He is actively involved in the operation and it is clear that he has passed along his passion for customer experience to his staff. My only wish is that we lived closer so we could visit more often!
Extremely kind words and we so appreciate your support of our small business. I have passed this along to Tony and he is very happy that his operation and involvement is satisfying his guests. Looking forward to your next visit with us Melody!
Very easy to reserve thur open box — great atmosphere with amazing food - music in background was perfect — took home a red and a while bottle of wine which was also amazing —— we will definitely go back soon !

Hi Anita! What extremely kind words, thank you! My name is Sarah and I am the Events Director with WillowsAwake! My parents are the owners and these words mean everything to us. If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to ask! -Sarah
We needed a nice place to go to celebrate a new job and WillowsAwake was the first place I thought of. We’d been wanting to try it out for several months, after taking a wine tasting outside one beautiful September afternoon.
Wow, what a great experience for dinner! Everything from the decor to the meal offerings, drink offerings and service, was top notch. I had the King Red Braised Brisket and my husband the Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs. Both were melt in your mouth delicious. The salads were just the right amount to compliment the meals. I had an excellent Rose wine and my husband was happy to have a beer from a local brewery he particularly enjoys.
It’s wonderful to have such a beautiful property with excellent food and wine (and beer!) so close to home. Can’t wait to visit again!
Hello Julie! We so appreciate you being a repeat customer for us! We are certainly trying to be a business where all are welcome and all can enjoy. I am thrilled to hear that you had a fantastic experience. I hope to see you both bac soon, summer is so close! -Sarah

Hi Shannon! Thank you for your review! I look forward to your next visit! We are always looking to improve. -Sarah
This was our first meal and we found out about the restaurant with a gift certificate we received when our parents passed away. Our first impressions were positive and welcoming at the end of the long drive way. We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the building everything is pretty. We sat with our friends at an intimate table. The food presentation was impeccable with the timing of course delivery adding to the total experience with our friends. The meal was delicious and far exceeded our expectations. WE will most definitely be repeat customers!
Hi Rhonda, My apologies on the passing of your parents. I am so happy you enjoyed yourselves in good company. Looking forward to your next visit, summer is almost here! Our covered porch is a wonderful date night option! -Sarah
Enjoyed our visit, it was a very quiet afternoon, a few Snowmobilers stopped by as the trail goes by this property.
My husband ordered a cup of Chili, but did not get it, (we were not charged).
Ordered dessert but it took a while before it was delivered. No other customers in the dinning area, just a couple at the bar . Apple Crisp was not what was expected, it was just warmed apples withsprinkled oatmeal and icecream. No texture.
Food was flavorful.
Hi Cindy! I appreciate your feedback. I apologize that one of the items you ordered did not make it to you. I certainly will address this with our kitchen staff. I look forward to your next visit so we can try again to enhance your experience! Please let me know if you need anything in the meantime. -Sarah
First time visit to Willows awake, great setting, staff was excellent, food was even better. Great atmosphere, the owner even stopped by to check in and we have a great talking about his dream and vision for the place. 5 stars all the way around. Check it out you will not be disappointed.
Hi Brian- Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed! Hope to see again soon. Brenda
The meal price was not with it! At $238.00 for two people. I could have gone to the Red Barn and enjoyed it more.
Hello Paul! I am very sorry to hear you did not enjoy yourself on your next visit. I do appreciate your feedback, it is important to us. I hope we have the opportunity to serve you again and enhance your experience. Again, thank you for letting us know. -Sarah
Food was delicious. Additions like the chocolate covered strawberries, rose, and sample of wine were very thoughtful and made the meal memorable. Kind of expensive but that comes with good food.
My wife and I went to No10 at Willows Awake for breakfast on Valentines Day. We were satisfied with the food. Portion size on my dish was smaller than I had expected for the price. I had corned beef hash and eggs. The hash was excellent. My eggs, which I had ordered over easy, were done medium, which was a disappointment. The home fries were ok, but tasted like they had been cooked earlier and reheated. My wife had crepes with fruit, and that was amazing. there were three crepes, and the fruit was very fresh. I had a Bloody Mary, and that was phenomenal. My wife had a cranberry mimosa, and loved it.
The service was excellent, and COVID practices were very comforting. We were seated at a safe distance from others, and staff all wore masks.
We enjoyed the ambiance. The dining room is beautiful, and comfortable, and there was music playing in the background that was not too loud.
In all, we had a great experience, and I would highly recommend No10 at Willows Awake!
Sorry about the eggs, I was in the kitchen that day to help out as we were shorthanded. Hope you will come back and give it another try. Thanks, Brenda
