    Food was good. Atmosphere was great but our server wasn’t good. She wasn’t attentive and she acted as if she didn’t care. She hardly checked on us and we had to ask for multiple times for items.

    Well I was pretty underwhelmed.. Unfortunately, there was no big bold exciting flavors . The descriptions of food really reel you in but the flavor did not match. staff was attentive and kind. I personally wouldn’t go out of my way to go back 😞 French '76 - $10 D’usse Cognac, sparkling wine, lemon juice and House simple syrup -way to sweet, could of not went so heavy on simple syrup or none at all. Full Circle Mushroom Bisque - $9 Aromatic Blend of local mushrooms, cream, and herbs -very tastey! Prob best part, this was soothing warm and mushroom flavor was “bold”bread wasn’t toasted much and felt kinda damp/soggy. Confit Duck Leg- $28 Slow cooked duck leg with carrot and fig puree, yellow squash, topped with candied figs and mixed greens -subtitle flavor but close to bland. Duck was a bit over cooked IMO. The dish did not come with said items, it had sausage & white kidney beans.. Not on this menu but did a Chile chocolate mousse. It was a nice bite! Didn’t taste any Chile though.

    This was guest chef 5-course dinner with Barto McCarty visiting Las Cruces from Austin. With exception of the salad course, smoked Brussel sprouts with mustard caviar, with salted honey drizzle and parmesan in a pumpkin romesco, all courses, one could detect the named seasonings/flavorings. Highlights were the main course of seared pork loin with a strawberry reduction with roasted red bell pepper and goat cheese pesto served over golden beets and strawberries and the dessert, chili-rubbed chocolate mousse topped honey-lime whip with candied habanero strips, and a Mexican wedding cookie crumbs. Appetizer was seared scallops over mezcal sauce and leek soup with pretzel croutons. Brussel sprouts and beets are uncommon on menus, but isn't this is what we pay fine dining chefs to execute. Hopefully, the chefs at Willow and Blaine can execute dishes as well as Mr. McCarty, having seen him work his magic in person.

    For the second time I’ve made the 35 Mike trip from El Paso only to find this place closed. I made a reservation, double checked their hours on Facebook, website. Etc. (Since I’d been burned once before). When we arrived, Sunday Nov 13 at 11:30, the doors weee locked, no one working, no sign in the window or on the door. I make a point to support small businesses, especially restaurants as I own one myself. But I will not make a 3rd attempt.

    Dinner with friends. Quiet evening. Perhaps yes temporary absence if a liquor license worked done diners but not us. The pork chop was thick and juicy. The salmon stuffed with pink and goat cheese equally as good. The highlight had to be the mushroom bisque!

    The service was outstanding. We ordered a martini that we didn’t really like, and although we took a drink the drink was comped. The salmon was not over cooked, as if often the case in other restaurants.

    Incredible Food, everything we ate exceeded what we expected! Special atmosphere, the nailed it on being unique and classy too. I didn’t catch the bartender’s name but she made the best cocktails. Katie (sorry if I spelled it incorrectly) was an exceptional server! From the minute we laid eyes on the building until we said our goodbyes and walked out the door was a delightful experience!

    We had been here twice before and both times the food was very good and the atmosphere pleasant. This time, we were disappointed as the food was not as good and there was a table nearby that was very loud (actually there was one woman at the table who was extremely loud). We had wanted to treat our brother, who was visiting from Germany, to a nice brunch. The noisy table behind us made it difficult to converse and he had to ask the server to repeat her questions several times. He asked that we leave as soon as we had eaten and to not take him back there again. I doubt we will go back by ourselves either.

    We always enjoy dining at Willow and Blaine. There is one young lady, who has been our server the last two visits, that seems to be lacking in experience. We hope that here skills will improve, with time. She’s very sweet, but being required to do all of here tasks by memory, seems to be challenging.
