    Overall the food was absolutely delicious. The oyster bar trash was really well seasoned, and the BBQ shrimp (not sure of the full name) that we had tasted so good I almost wanted to ask for more bread just to eat more of the sauce. However upon first walking in, the hostesses were not appropriately dressed in my opinion. One had on a (cute) very very short and tight fitting dress that looked like something one should wear at a club, not at an upscale dining restaurant as a hostess. Another one wore an oversized jacket that slumped off her shoulder and looked like she threw on a random jacket like she was going grocery shopping. They were all very sweet and kind, and it was my first time at Willie G’s so maybe it isn’t as upscale as I thought it was, but their attire just didn’t seem appropriate. Additionally, there was a private event being hosted and the music was so incredibly loud my server had difficulty hearing me often. The ambiance just wasn’t what I expected and I was slightly disappointed.

    My husband and I visited for our anniversary, which I included on our reservation note. We were wished a happy anniversary by the hostess, the person who sat us, the waitress, and the food runners. The food was excellent and the seafood was fresh. The ambiance was great, staff was helpful and knowledgable, and the cocktails were delicious. We ordered a dozen bourbon street style oysters, seafood martini, bourbon street pasta, tile fish special, great Brussel sprouts (which I’m usually not a fan of), and delicious beignets with 3 dipping sauces. We had a wonderful time and will be back to celebrate more special occasions.

    I wanted to love it but just couldn't. The raw oysters were lifeless, bland. The parmesan fries were very delicious and I should have stopped there as they were great! The King Crab Legs very disappointing to 2 of us. They seemed old and frozen. No flavor at all. It was very sad. Bread pudding was awesome and saved the day. If I had to eat there again I would skip oysters and crab. Would definitely eat the fries and bread pudding.

    I've always given Willie G's 5 stars... but this visit, while our group of colleagues had a wonderful evening, the food was simply "okay." For starters, we had the bacon-wrapped shrimp, which we've ordered many times, the fried calamari, and the dumplings. The dumplings were absolutely delicious! Perfectly cooked with a marvelous savory flavor. But this time, the bacon-wrapped shrimp were overcooked - almost rubbery. The calamari, as well, was overcooked - I believe the pieces were cut too small, so they cooked faster. Alas, they were definitely rubbery. Entrees were fried shrimp, a cheeseburger, salmon, sushi roll, and gumbo. While there were raves about the gumbo (another regular repeat favorite,) and the fried shrimp, the rest of the dishes were rather mediocre. Fortunately, everything else we love about Willie G's remained excellent: the service was gracious as always, from the valets to the hostesses, and, especially, our server. She was outstanding, from start to finish. Also, the atmosphere is top-notch at Willie G's. It's a gorgeous space, and, even though the dining room was filled to the gills, we could all converse at our table without having to shout at each other, as the designers filled the space with plenty of soft surfaces to absorb sound. Of course I'll be back. In fact, another friend made a reservation for next week, so I'll be back sooner than later :)

    Nice restaurant. Excellent oysters though the Calamari was more batter than squid. The main course of the broiled seafood platter and the surf and turf were "acceptable" though nothing to get excited about. So, from a starter and main perspective, the food was good but not overwhelming. Unfortunately, that's where the positive ended. The Creme Brulé was abysmal, tasting more like a Flan custard than a Brulé. Being my absolute favorite desert, I've tasted some very excellent Brule's, and this definitely was not one of them. Good effort but no gold star

    Willie G’s was a great option for fine dining. We enjoyed the grilled oysters, they were perfectly cooked and wonderfully seasoned. The king crab fried rice was also excellent. The desserts may have been another highlight of our dinner as well! They were both so rich in flavor without being overwhelming. We would have preferred the ribeye with a more seasoned crust but they got the medium rare temperature perfect! The broiled seafood platter is another solid option but could have had a bit more charbroiled flavor to it. Ambiance is good, fine dining spot. Def expect to spend a decent amount of $$$ @ourblissfulbites on IG for more

    Came for Xmas. We made reservations at 1:30 for brunch and unfortunately we waited so long to be seated the brunch menu was over by the time we sat down. The service was great. The hostesses were visibly bothered and we could’ve done a better job at communicating how long the wait was and what time time brunch menu ended.

    I appreciate that this was Christmas day however the waitfor a reservation was nearly forty minutes. The steak was undercooked, even after being sent back. The entree Greek salad was the size of a side salad. We were seated at an awkward choke point of the bar, kitchen exit and bathroom. Very disappointing.

    With the Christmas Day crowd, it did take a few extra minutes to get a table for our 12:45 reservation, but well worth the wait. Service was prompt and we were fortunate to get a table in a corner of the restaurant for people watching as well as a lower level of noise which allowed us to have conversation. We look forward to Willie G's again to sample the dinner menu.

    When we arrived for a special occasion noted in reservation originally seated in bar area then moved to the restaurant, Wine very overpriced, for 9 once glass 2/3 cost of retail bottle. Food good but average for the price. Ambience more commercial. Would not recommend for cost, for those prices experience needs to be more special, especially in terms of FOOD,. Except for fish food serveed room temperature. Overrated and would not recommend.,
