Good not as good as it’s been in the past. Maybe they have a new Chef. Very odd recipes/dishes. They described it as Mediterranean but more like Middle Eastern to be accurate. Hope they get a new chef soon it such a nice place and the service and the happy hour are great. Good luck management make the change.

Our waitress was very friendly and professional. We had a family party that was cxled due to Covid. One willow saved us with a last minute reservation so we could celebrate with the few family members that were not sick. I had the salmon it was great.
We will be back!!

One Willow has potential. Service and food is not that great. If the owner tried a little better can turn this place into a great dining and service restaurant.

My wife and I dine out 3 nights a week so we are no strangers to fine dining, this was a big disappointment, my wife's entrée was drowned in a salty brown sauce, my friends drink was too sweet ,he sent it back and was charged, not a good for sign for customer care. We will not be dining here again.

We were treated like VIPs — the food was amazing, the service was absolutely excellent. I wish it were just a tad quieter and a little dimmer - the lighting was a little bright. Overall excellent and I can’t wait to go back.

The food was below average and highly priced. To add insult to injury, a service fee was added on to the bill. Definitely not worth revisiting. There are plenty of places with gourmet food priced correctly. We don’t mind paying for a meal well worth it.

Very expensive for the quality and quantity of food. I was delighted with the gluten free options until I ordered the “gluten free” onion soup and once I received it questioned again if it was gluten free and then they said it’s only gluten free without the bread. Probably best that the server knew that in advance when I asked upon ordering. A nice atmosphere though .

Food was very good, although the tuna entree lacked flavor. Also had the local clams, Cesar salad and risotto special. Beautiful atmosphere and location. Wait staff started off great but as the restaurant got busy, we were completely ignored. Price level also a bit high for the quality and level of service.

We had brunch outside with our small , leashed dog. The view and ambiance is always beautiful. While the brunch menu is available only on Sunday, it is limited. The avocado toast was made on a baguette, rather than toast, which made it too bread-y. It came topped with a fried egg, which was very good. Multigrain toast would have been much better.
Service was great.

The food, ambiance and location were wonderful. Our server was less than accommodating. It wasn’t busy and when we asked to be moved to the next table to see the view. She told us it wasn’t clean despite there being nothing on the table.
She never came over to ask how our meal was and we had to wave her down to get drink refills.
I know restaurants are short staffed but it wasn’t busy at all last night.
We will come back because of the beautiful view and good food and drinks. Never had this experience before just disappointing

The restaurant is a wonderful location and the service is great. The prices are high for what they give you and the food is just ok. I had the Caesar salad which was very good I then had the pork chop which was very fatty with polenta that was pasty and peaches that were rock hard. The donut holes for desert were very good. So overall 3 stars for the food. If you want a really nice looking place and don’t care much about the food this is the place for you.

Weekend lunch visit - The oyster & shrimp appetizer was one of best around. The fried calamari appetizer was nicely breaded with a compliment of peppers that were both outstanding. The blackened tuna along with the shrimp tacos also delicious!
Sangria was very good. Our server, Alex, was very attentive. We enjoyed our meal so much that we had no room for dessert... so we'll have to return for that!

Great views of Sandy Hook Bay. The ceasar salad with anchovies was delicious. The veal tortellini was done nicely, just not my favorite. Valrhona chocolate pots du creme was the best.

Not busy on a rainy Thursday night so disappointed our bar drinks took so long to arrive. Otherwise, server Alex was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations.

Introduced friends from Long Island to One Willow - a favorite of ours. They loved it too!
To start off we all shared Caesar salad. Generous portion, fresh and they even asked our preference for anchovies on top. Yes, please!!!!

We had the shrimp cocktail - giant shrimp, excellent; spaghetti with clams, Atlantic tuna - a favorite dish of mine; steak - done perfectly and very tender; and the fresh market catch - halibut. Everyone was very pleased with meals.

Service was friendly and attentive. Another perfect meal at One Willow…
