Nice atmosphere and a fresh modern take on a classic seafood restaurant. The pork chop dinner was outstanding. The scallop and tile fish dinners were very good but on the smaller side. Views are beautiful.

Our dinner at One Willow was excellent! We devoured our food, drinks were tasty, service was great (our waitress was new and did a great job— she was super sweet!). After dinner we went to the outside bar for a drink at sunset and the view was spectacular! Bartenders were also really great. Definitely our new go-to… we already made plans to go again in a few weeks with friends!

Beautiful location. Service was excellent. I had the scallops entree, which was cooked to perfection. Presentation of the entrees and appetizers were superb. A bit on the pricier side, especially with the portions not being that big, but definitely will come back regardless.

The starter of tuna taco was excellent and perfect for 2 to share. The Halibut special was delicious and so uniquely prepared. if you're looking for a light, dessert try the date cake. It was sweet and perfect to end the meal. I can't say enough about the service and the waitress. She really took time to not only explain the dishes, but also share a fun conversation.

Ordered fish and was delivered chicken no one came over to say they were sorry for the mistake, and no one offered something to compensate for this error. Third time there and not pleased with head managers not responding to the error. Would probably not go again

I usually don’t write reviews but this establishment wowed me from start to finish! Everyone working is super accommodating and polite. The food Is so flavorful with generous portions and the raw bar is unbelievably fresh! I usually hate oysters but after promising to try one I ate half a dozen because they were So addictive! They had a live band playing outside with amazing views of the ocean. This is now my favorite spot and I already have plans to return in a few days!

The place has a great ambiance and ocean view Menu a bit limited. Food was good we had octopus, shishito peppers, and wings for apps. Husband had black cod. Portion very small fish was in pieces. A bit disappointing. I had pork chop which was made well but the polenta with it was lacking in taste and a bit dry. Service was lacking as the bar was backed up. Think they need more help. Will give them another try. Hope they get more help

Understanding that it has been difficult to get enough servers in the NJ restaurants I still expect a certain degree of service for the dollars we spend. It took way to long to have cocktails served despite 3 bartenders behind the bar. Our main dish was also very delayed.
I had the tomato avocado salad as an appetizer and it was delicious. My husband had a very mediocre and small portion of calamari for an appetizer. Way too many hot peppers and not enough fish. I had a tuna taco appy for my main and there was barley any tuna in the tacos. For 18 dollars I would have expected better. My husband had the grilled octopus appy for a main which was very good.
This restaurant needs more consistency with the food to succeed. The atmosphere will bring guests for the first time but we are not likely to return again based on our first experience.

We were a Table of 6 and 5 of the 6 meals were mediocre at best. Fish was dry, pork chops extremely fatty and tortellini dish had 12 small pieces. Would not go there again for a meal. Maybe a happy hour app and drink outside. To sum it up, Expensive and definitely not worth it. We don’t mind spending the money but poor quality food is so disappointing.

Poor service, slow service- missing apps, wrong drinks, missed drinks, over cooked, front end managers response was an insult “ patience is a virtue I can tell you don’t have it”. I’ll pay a high price for food if it’s delicious & the service is good. I’ll never go back

Was able to enjoy dinner on the patio with our dog. Pleasant view of the water and sandy hook. Drinks were excellent. Our dinner entrees were tasty and excellent. However my spaghetti and clam portion seemed small for the price.

One Willow never ceases to amaze. The atmosphere, menu offerings, food/drinks, and service. All amazing. You can’t beat the view. And definitely treat yourself to the raw bar. They had some of the best east and west coast oysters I’ve ever had. Also highly recommend the mussels appetizer and filet mignon dinner.

Not impressed! Went late afternoon to order off the 4-6 happy hour menu but when arrived we were told it was only for bar area. Ok we thought that it’s still early enough that we could order off the lunch menu...nope! Told it was too late for that, meanwhile nowhere in the website nor menus does it list time frame for ordering lunch or dinner. Food was OK, nothing to rave about especially at their price points! When we asked if we could get bread they said sure; it’s on a request basis...why didn’t server ask us if we wanted bread??? How were we to know we had to ask for bread
To boot we were changed additional $ for a Hendricks martini straight up!!!??? While a Hendrix martini with a splash of vermouth was not up charged....still don’t understand the up charge.
Needless to say we won’t be going back. Don’t waste your money because the food is not worth it.
