    Great food and service. The halibut seemed a bit under seasoned but was flaky and cooked well. A simple but delicious dish. Our favorite was the gnocchi. Wish I had another bowl of it right now!

    A great dining experience along with the ambiance! The cocktails, the wine, the appetizers, main courses and desserts very well prepared and delicious. A shout out to our server, Rashel, who was very attentive and gave great suggestions on the menu and cocktails.

    We were squished in between two parties and I felt like I was invading other people’s conversations. The brought out the wrong plate for my friend and had to remake it so my food got cold while I waited for hers to be redone.

    Loved loved loved the carpaccio but the risotto was gummy and the lobster ravioli was only ok. The raviolis sauce was nice being a thinner cream sauce but a bit too thin. Sazerac was disappointing, mezcal drink was pretty good.

    Willow Room consistently offers a first-class dining experience. The food is amazing (super fresh, creative and well presented). The drink menu has many great options. And the service is always attentive but not domineering. The evenings we’ve ventured to The Willow Room are filled with great conversation, with everyone satiated and happy at night’s end. A must try! You will definitely return!

    The ambience was very nice and warm. The food was great overall. We ordered mussels and octopus for apps- both of which tasted a little bit under cooked. We still enjoyed all the entrees, desserts, and cocktails.

    The problem was there was only really one waitress for the entire place, along with two guys who helped out. It took nearly 20 minutes to just take our order. Food came out fast, that was great. And the food is really good. However, it just took a while. If you have a lot of time, great. If not, it could be an issue.
