    I love Willies and visit frequently. We were fortunate to have Oscar as our Server. He is always exceptional. Our appetizer and entree were both excellent and had a beautiful presentation. This restaurant has come a very long way since opening and we are always happy to be guests here.

    What a wonderful afternoon tea Willie's offers. It was beautifully prepared with perfect tea sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and jam. The pastries, prepared by Yanie Perez of Cake &Cakes, were exquisite.

    We were the first seated. We got to watch the room fill and everyone get their food and clear away “the tower” of goodies before we got ours. Apologies were made of course. A computer glitch… it was frustrating.

    Wonderful brunch experience.had the patio pretty much to ourselves so it was nice and peaceful. Food was very good. Most had the French toast which was yummy, served with a side of perfectly cooked bacon. One had the Benedict and loved it. For dessert the table shared a baked Alaska and tirs misou. We licked the plate practically on both of them. We look forward to going back and having a dinner there sometime soon.

    My husband and I had a wonderful date night at Willie's Saturday evening. From the beginning our sever, Oscar, made the evening special. After an excellent martini, with blue cheese stuffed olives, we moved on to our appetizers. The asparagus egg appetizer was presented beautifully and delicious while my husband had the soup trio enjoying it immensely. For mains I had the prime rib cooked to medium rare perfection and Monty had the filet - both were a delight. Again thanks to Oscar for making the evening a memorable one.
