    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.

    The food was very tasty and I really enjoyed the atmosphere, although the portions of the food for the cost were not worth the price to me. I would have been more satisfied if I was under the expectation that the food would be small portions.

    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.

    Food was great as always. The churro and horchata ice cream was amazing! A new favorite! We did have reservations for outside but when we arrived there was no seating outside left. We did sit in a cute little area with good lighting that gave the same feel as outside. The only issue was the time it took to get drinks out.

    This time there were too many flies and made it very uncomfortable, also you could tell that more tables were added and put very close together, which made it very difficult to get in and out, the people at the table next to us sneezed several times without covering their mouths and because of the tables being so close their sneezes reached our table. The reason we went that day is that we love the band, although this time they were a little bit too loud so it made it difficult to communicate among us at the table. We still love the place and will invite more people, but we hope this situation won't repeat itself again.

    I had a few friends visiting from out of town. We were seated outside during jazz brunch, which was lovely. The ambiance was a bit marred by multiple dogs roaming the premises. I’m not sure the restaurant’s policy on pets, I can only assume from this experience that it’s anything goes. Our server was sweet but forgot multiple items, so one person’s order was finally brought after everyone else had finished their meals. Overall I enjoyed brunch but it wasn’t as great as prior visits.

Food is awesome, place is beautiful, drinks are unique and superb, and the service is perfect. Thank you for making our special occasion even more special! We’ll be back on Sunday to help you celebrate your one-year anniversary, and in October to celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary. And whenever we are in the mood for great food and drinks ❤️

    The mid-week neighborhood meal (3 courses at $25 plus $5 glass of wine) is wonderful! We combined it with an appetizer off the regular menu and it was great. Dining on the covered porch was great. They have the flies and mosquitoes under control. Can't wait to go back! 5 stars all the way.

    A complicated review. First, this is the most attractive spot in Las Cruces or for miles around. If ever I wanted to impress someone I would go here. Second, the noise level , at a time when the restaurant was only half full, was bad. There appeared to be no noise softening/abatement effort which made conversation (again only half full) difficult. Next, the bar left a great deal to be desired. The mojito tasted like a glass of water - no trace of mint nor hint of rum. It was returned and we were not charged. The nontraditional bloody mary was virtually tasteless as well although I requested medium spicy. The drink had an unappetizing mushy consistency, but I drank it anyway. The two brunch items we ordered, build your own omelet and eggs benedict, were wonderful. Spicy hollandaise was great. The staff was responsive to our displeasure, as we wanted this 80th birthday to be special, and gave us some yummy macarons to sweeten us up. We sort of needed it at this point. We would recommend W&B but with limitations, and unfortunately would not rush back.

    This was our 3rd time eating at Willow and Blaine. The food was delicious. The service was friendly and responsive but we didn’t feel at all rushed. The summer menu includes a fabulous mushroom bisque. My husband enjoyed his pork chop very much. I had the salmon, which I don’t usually order out because most places overcook it, but it was cooked perfectly! You can’t go wrong with the pot de creme for dessert. We would recommend Willow and Blaine to friends and family.

    A delicious Brunch for my birthday!! The patio tables were full and we could still hear well. Service was very good. My 2nd time here, and won't be my last. Truly a wonderful experience was had by all. Shrimp and Grits - Creamy and Delicious. Eggs Benedict - perfect poached egg with delicious Hollandaise, and a tasty steak sandwich with delicious chimichurri. Topped off with Birthday macarons. A+++

    We had reservations for 3 at 1145. They were not ready for us and we had to wait between 15-20 minutes. However the manager was very gracious and comped our drinks and 1 dessert to celebrate my birthday. I was very glad for that and appreciative! Unfortunately the server did not mention the brunch special which I think my husband would have liked. I got the regular eggs Benedict, the egg yolks were soft not runny and the hollandaise sauce was not flavorful. My husband had the omelette which he said was ok. My daughter had the grits and shrimp, she liked it. I had the seasonal gallette and it was good except for the crust which was relatively raw. there was a wedding party inside, perhaps that was the issue with the food and seating. I would like to go back, but alone as my husband has no desire to return.

    Hate the wicker backed chairs. Super uncomfortable. Asked for a table without them but got them anyway. Ribeye was very good. Beet gnocci was very plain. Maybe add sliced beets or similar so you actually can taste the beets.
