We made reservations a week prior and we seated in the bar. Who wants to pay 300-400+ dollars for a meal and sit at a bar? When we questioned the hostess she was rude and unwilling to help us find a solution, so we left. We always trust a Tillman Fertitta restaurant to be excellent, but this restaurant is so poorly managed. A funny turn of events, we ended up eating at a different Tillman Fertitta restaurant, the grotto, and the meal, wait staff and hosts were all wonderful. Maybe Willie G’s could learn a thing or two from its sister restaurant.

This was our first visit to the new location on the West Loop and over all we enjoyed very much. The waiter was very friendly, but seemed to a little too busy. We waited too long to get a glass of wine and then he forgot a couple of extra request. I had the Snapper Melissa and the fish was delicious. The broccoli could have been cooked a little longer. My wife order the 16 oz Rib Eye well done. It came out charred on the outside and red on the inside. Maybe they were trying to shorten the wait. Overall everything was okay to very good if that makes sense. We were celebrating a birthday for my brother-in-law but it was not know since the hostess said we were not on the reservation list even though I had a confirmation. They did seat us right away though. I would still try and come back. Manager(s) need to walk around and visit the tables to help the wait staff. Cale, our waiter was very nice and I would ask for him again, God willing. Thank you

I believe Karla was our server. I usually hit up Willie G’s for their happy hour and Karla is awesome! We’ve had her about 3 times as our server and we will continue visiting : )

All of us had the Denver omelette and it was worth every penny. The portions are very full and fulfilling. The service was impeccable...we will be back soon! We normally come for lunch.

It was freezing in there. Could feel a really cold draft, my wife and mom complained a few times to me, we told our waiter he said we weren't the only ones to complain. We ate our food fast because the food was getting cold. halfway through our meal the ac finally turned off. Pretty loud in there, spending that much on our meal, I would like a quieter atmosphere. Food was good but would have been better if the cold breeze wasn't blowing on it cooling off. Food was cold before we had a chance to finish.

Had a nice table in corner. However, the view down the hall was directly into the kitchen area which was not appealing and somewhat distracting. When entrees came out, mine was the incorrect fish. I ordered Red Snapper and received Salmon which had to be returned and replaced. Meanwhile, my wife's scallops were not cooked enough and when the server finally came to check on her, she had to send hers back. The frozen margarita's were very good and so was the blueberry cheesecake. The food was very good once we got what we ordered, etc. Not the experience we expected for our first visit and celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary, but we would give them another try in the future.

It was obvious that something was definitely wrong with the quality and taste of the food. Shrimp were smaller in size as before, oysters Rockefeller were not grilled enough (almost still raw). We took our out of town friends there and were very disappointed.

Buen lugar, pero en la foto te imaginas que está muy bonito, y el ares más formal solo es business formal, es decir, camisa casual y pantalón dockers no te sientan ahí. El ares casual es un lugar agradable pero muy informal y caro para el lugar.

Easter Brunch.

Lots of food selections as expected. Service was good. Not great. Food wait was terrible. Over 37mins from appetizers to our main meal. The rest of the family enjoyed their food, but the soup was cold. Mine, the eggs Benedict came COLD. I requested it to be warmed with additional hollandaise sausage to heat it. Came back smothered but otherwise COLD. Understand it was a busy time and lots of patrons. But food wasn’t up to the reputation. Will not be going back!!!!

WG’s is a great restaurant was glad we got in when we did. We ordered appetizers, because there were so many good selections! We had the bass bites, while good, not great. Also had bacon wrapped shrimp, my shrimp in my Bloody Mary was bigger. Bang bang shrimp were good.

Overall, we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere!

Tables super close together for to be classified as “upscale dining”...also quality of dishes were poor in my opinion. Oysters super small...very weird to say it’s a seafood restaurant.

Terrible service. Waited 15 min before server arrived at table. Took forever to get drinks. They didn't have our first choice for drinks. Ordered crab cakes. Cold in the middle...yuck. Decided to not move on to entree. Paid the bill, but the server didn't give me my credit card back. Had enough and finally spoke with the manager, Sara. She comped our bill and found my credit card in the back. Bad experience. Never will go there again.
