Always love eating at Willow! Great to see Caitlin
Great food and service
we dine here a few times a year. as usual, the food was very good. inventive and of good quality. service was excellent.
I've eaten hear twice over the last month and each time the food and service was excellent.
Exceptional. Daniel was a gracious host and the food was spectacular. Can’t wait to return to HS to enjoy again.
Fabulous food in a friendly comfortable yet hip atmosphere
I’m in the food business and am an extremely critical diner. We happened upon this restaurant by chance. It took me 3 searches of local restaurants to find food that looked interesting . It was truly one of the best meals that my family has had.
Low keyed. Unpretentious. Underpromise. Over deliver.
The waitress was lovely. The cocktails and mock tail delicious. My son and his friend were celebrating a major life event and we splurged on the Waygu steak. I have not and likely will never again spend that much on a meal. ThAt being said, it was outstanding , beautifully served and perfectly cooked. The potatoes served with it were amazing. Light and crispy and not overly rich.
The small plates were our favorite. Something about the vegetable stew was rich and mysteriously delicious. Short rib tacos easily enough for two with a 2 other plates and incredible
The young owner/chef came to the table and spent plenty of time with us telling us about his background and chatting up about food in Detroit.
It was a special night that we will never forget.
We enjoyed and will be back. Thanks.
The cocktails were inspired and there was something special about every course. Yeah I miss fear is very interesting, the patrons and staff are engaging. Definitely one of my favorites!
This place was incredible. I never leave reviews for restaurants but felt I needed to after my experience at Willow.
We just had 4 small plates because they sounded delicious on the menu and we were not disappointed. Everything would sounds classical but had a twist. Sweet potato soup with shredded coconut was to inhale. Brussel sprouts with a hint of mint (and other goodness) were really good. Great crab cakes as well. Tacos we're very flavorful. The two of us had a lot of leftovers after these small plates.
Service, courtesy of Crystal G, was very friendly.
Great experience all in all.
Fantastic service, wonderful food. Highly recommend.
It was extremely cold by the window which ruined dinner for me. Everything else was great!
Food and service were outstanding!
Wonderful food and owners
The food was excellent.The only complaint is that the restaurant was quite chilly on the inside. Almost uncomfortably cold.
This is the best restaurant in Northern Michigan - fabulous food, wine, and staff. Highly recommend!
First time at Willow this past weekend during the shut down pandemic. They provide a single table at the entrance vestibule with a couple of heaters for a nice intimate dinner. Food is superb and the owner/chef is attentive and engaging if you want. We'll be back for sure!
Great food as well as service. Bit cold in the outdoor seating area.
The restaurant was closed when we showed up for our reservation.
Since the pandemic shut down, it was a rare treat to dine out. Willow made us cozy in their outdoor dining space (in Northern Michigan, in January with two kids and no one complained about their comfort).
The food was delicious. We shared a lovely bottle of wine and my husband treated himself to a top shelf pour. We were so happy with our winter, outdoor dining adventure and Willow came through with tasty meals and a terrific staff.
Food was wonderful. Service too. Everyone loved the chowder & Brussel sprouts. A fun meal. Definitely recommend!
We enjoyed a Sunday evening for dinner here. The service was great and the food was absolutely delicious! Can’t wait to eat here again.
I wasn’t happy as I made the reservation months ago and asked for a regular table, not a high top. We were led to a high top and I mentioned it and the hostess was very dismissive and said it’s based on the order of reservation. This set the tone. Food was good as always but they need to mix up the menu a bit. It’s a pricey dinner and I was not happy to sit in a rickety high top table and chair. It’s the little things.
Absolutely amazing food- have been all over the world and Dined several 4star plus restaurants and this up there with one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Chef is amazing.
This was our second time and both times have been memorable and really love the delicious food - thanks!
Great service and beautiful views.
We really loved this restaurant! The food was amazing and the staff was excellent. Five stars for sure.
Top notch service, great people. Wonderful date night spot. Definitely a go-to spot if visiting this area!
Started with music volume on obnoxiously loud. Waitress seemed a bit bothered to be having yo serve us. My wife’s meal came out good and the sides were great, but my duck was served cold as if it had been in the window for a while.
Food was insane, my husband couldn’t believe how good it was, thought it was the best he’s had in a long time!
Delicious wonderful experience
We celebrated my mom’s 75th birthday and truly had an amazing evening! Food was delicious, service was outstanding! First time but definitely not out last!
Absolutely outstanding. Excellent service. Inspired menu that took us places we hadn’t been before. A culinary experience to remember and return to.
we went on a saturday night and found the food to be outstanding. the service was another matter. when we arrived, the host (who was also a server) seemed confused at one point, walked away, and eventually another person (who was also a server) came and started over with us. our server was sweet, and tried her best, but she was also tending bar. long periods of time elapsed with no attention. if this was a casual dining restaurant it would not be a problem, but for a restaurant where the entrees are priced in the $40 range, one expects more. if you are short staffed, accept less reservations. social distancing was just ok. tables were a bit too close together-maybe 4 feet apart?
Excellent food and wine!
Last June 2019 we dined here twice, it was outstanding. Each plate was creative, delicious & interesting.
And the service was attentive & enjoyable.
This time was good but not great, did not feel the passion. Our server was fine but not great.
Everything about the past two experiences at Willow have been amazing. The dishes are creative, not over the top and perfect. The service was outstanding. Yes, as you'll see from reviews, it's not inexpensive but from our point of view, worth it!
