    Food was not up to previous experience here. Beef short ribs were over cooked. Wedge salad didn’t have the yummy bacon nor same dressing. Service was good but young waiter couldn’t open the bottle of wine. Our party of 4 was seated at a 6-top so it lacked the intimacy for conversation.

    The staff was so wonderful! We had a dinner reservation for my friend’s bachelorette party. We had a hard time finding a fancier place to eat near our lake house, and I’m so glad I picked W456! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful. We hadn’t told them ahead of time that it was for a bachelorette, but once they found out, they brought out themed napkins, table decor, and more to make our bride feel special! It was so appreciated.

    The buffet was the only option as we were not offered a menu. The dining area was cramped and hot, my seat kept getting bumped, we did not get our drink orders taken until 15 minutes after seating, the table wobbled, there were flies in the dining area, and food was average. To top it off the buffet shut down around 2. Why take reservations until 1:45 if you are going to shut it down at 2? $168 for 3 is highly disappointing for this buffet experience.

    Mother’s Day flies were terrible. Literally touched all our food. They brought the spinner machines to help. Still had flies on our food. Told the front & she asked “what do you want me to do” will not come back again. Disgusting.

    Our second visit last night to this jewel in a desert oasis. Excellent wedge salads, burned BBQ tips and pork chop bone-in were perfectly prepared and of high quality. A bottle of Pinot Noir was a great complement. Our only distraction, hence the lower star ratings, was an endless of line of people there for a special gathering of some type, starting at 6pm, a bit after our own 5:30 reservation. The line of people was endless and ruined any privacy or restaurant ambience that W456 normally will offer. Service suffered a bit, with all hands on deck trying to take care of the crowd plus the rest of us simultaneously. Overall, the crowd control was pretty good, but the logistics of holding such meetings isn't a strength in that setting.

Katie and Nick Parsley the Manager and Head Chef are Treasures and make us feel like family. If you live anywhere near cedar creek lake you need to experience the special cuisine and treatment in store for you at W456!

    First time there and we absolutely loved it! We went for Easter brunch and it was just wonderful. The food was delicious and the service friendly and outstanding. And the ambience is really beautiful - very eclectic and every little thing thought out. Really lovely patio dining available and it was fun to go to the little boutique they have right next door. We'll definitely be back to support this local gem!

    Not a good evening for us. We were seated in an crowded room in a corner by a service isle and I literally got bumped by waitstaff that were in a hurry the entire evening, mostly with no apologies . No way to scoot out of the way. Service was slow for drinks then we had to wait 20 minutes to order salads. Wedge salad was pitiful. Yellow limp warm lettuce. We had fried prime rib & braised short ribs. Potatoes cold on both entrees. Short ribs tasted like leftovers. Not fresh. Music too pound to carry on a conversation at the table. Not for me.

    W456 is great! But, I wish they had a better reservation system than Opentable, which keeps sending me these user surveys, which require review in order to avoid additional emails. I suppose I could mark Opentable as spam. When I want to dine at W456 again in the future (who’s h, I will), I will try to call the restaurant directly to avoid this annoying series of follow ups from Opentable. If only Opentable would quit send it’s junk surveys. 😊

    1st time visit- the only complaint was the Tomato and goat cheese appetizers - it was disappointing - 1 very thinly sliced tomato with roasted goat cheese - Maybe I’m asking to much, but I would have expected 3 or 4 tomato slices Red Snapper was very good Beef Filet was very good Drinks and wine menu were nice - It was a little pricey for the area -
