Special Night for my daughters birthday . Great Porch/Patio dining. Waitress was great. Our drinks took forever and then a Mojito that wasn’t a Mojito at all no mint and made with a sour mix . Manager corrected this and took off the bill. Calamari app was lacking calamari but had many peppers .
Entrees were ok at best . Spaghetti over cooked clams gritty ( it happens I know) Steak dish Filet was very good Potatoes lukewarm at best . Pork chop was really good with polenta and grilled peaches . Desserts average . A bit pricey which I don’t mind paying for if it was a spot on meal .
If it didn’t take so long for the drinks I might have made mention of the food items but I might still be there waiting to eat. Not overly impressed since Trama’s left the premises. Great spot just need to step it up a bit .

Food was good and our waitress was terrific. The one thing lacking was the attention to safety protocols. There was a female bartender with a face mask around her neck and not covering her mouth and nose. Also, tables and chairs were not wiped down when turned over. The bar was packed shoulder to shoulder with none of the patrons wearing masks. If you want to instill safety and confidence in your guests than these measures need to be implemented. The law requires persons that are unrelated and not socially distant to wear masks.

We appreciated the restaurant’s adherence to the safety guidelines during this difficult time. There was adequate distance between the tables. Fortunately One Willow has abundant and lovely outdoor space. Food was delicious and service great as always.

Amazing dinner! The Chicken Milanese was fantastic. Can’t wait to have it again. The Willow Burger and fish tacos were also very good. Can’t beat the atmosphere. Best in Monmouth County if you want outdoor dining with a one of a kind view.

This was our first time dining at One Willow. We went on 4th of July around 8:30 and surprisingly it wasn’t very busy. There were several issues we encountered throughout the night. The first being they didn’t have Grey Goose vodka, which is a minor thing but at a restaurant with their prices, it’s something I expected. Next they got our appetizer order incorrect. Once we finally received the plates they were INEDIBLE. The oysters were littered with shells and sand and tasted of low tide, and the mussels were completely overcooked and covered in cilantro despite communication of an allergy. The meal (halibut and a burger) were okay but honestly nothing to write home about. For a $250+ meal I expected so much more. Perhaps they were understaffed due to the pandemic but the service and quality of food we received were unacceptable. We won’t be back any time soon!

Food was excellent, service was above average but not great, table was near the service area and was a bit busy and noisy, some people did not wear masks when they were walking to and from their tables and staff did not say anything to them about it. Was a good experience, but could have been better.

Since they have split from Trama, the menu is now very limited and the portions are considerably smaller. Spaghetti with Clams had Clams but 4 fork fulls of pasta! At best an appetizer size. Halibut was claimed to be 6 ounces but again was small. Even the Shrimp are smaller in the Appetizer Cocktail. Very good waitress tried to make the best of the evening but I would take this off our list. Out of the first wine selection, replacement delivered unchilled. Disappoinitng and a shame since it used to be very good.

The location is lovely. The food was very good. But we waited over an hour for our food with absolutely NO explanation. The waitress studiously avoided our table after our order was placed. We found the manager who was Very gracious and explained that they were backlogged on the lobster roll orders. This would have been very helpful information had our waitress told us. The Mgr ended up comping our meal which was much appreciated. The waitress then decided to stop at our table 3 more times to apologize. Too little too late.

It was a quiet night, but the hostess wasn't at the front, and it took 10 minutes for someone to seat me. From that point, the service was good, but I felt that the food was very mediocre, especially for the price point. I could see how it might be better worth the money in the summer, when sitting outside.

Trama's at One Willow is always wonderful! The food is to die for and if you are lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Laura, she is to die for as well! Pat's new jaunt to the Fulton Fish Market has proved to be a winning ticket, and what he creates from his adventures there, are not to be believed.

You MUST be sure to dine there soon. I promise you will be back.

Had 6 people dine for a birthday celebration! Everything was perfect, fresh catch halibut was amazing, sea scallops, steak, pasta, veal flank all outstanding! The appetizers were delicious including the oysters, wings, charred octopus and baby buratta ! Excellent service and beautiful scenery overlooking the bay with NYC shining in the distance! Well done Tramas At one willow!

Always a delight to dine here.. Though the food is quite good and the portions decent, I feel it is a bit on the pricey side. Nevertheless for the beautiful decor and views- it’s worth the splurge for a special treat.

It’s so wonderful to be back at Trama’s At One Willow! We are happy you had a nice vacation, but boy did we miss you! You didn’t miss a trick or lose your cooking skills, Chef Pat!

We always leave there contented and ready to make another reservation, especially after the Instagram posting of you at the Fulton Fish Market and what you created w/the red snapper. Guess what? We have another reservation for tonight!

You’re the BEST!
