We sat outside for lunch. The staff was very patient with us since we were discussing old times and some business.

Wonderful night out on the patio with my parents and sister. Everyone loved their entrees and cocktails. Excellent service from Mike and relaxed yet classic ambiance. Would come again.

We love the Willow Room! We have eaten there several times now and consider it our go to for a weekend brunch when we go to the city. We had our sons with us today, they live in the city, and they enjoyed the atmosphere and food as much as we always do, so they will be frequent customers too. Delicious, healthy food options, and love the many mimosas 🤗

We had reservations on a Sat night for 7:30 outside dining. At 2pm there were severe storm warnings so we called and they graciously moved us inside 10 minutes later. The food was awesome - especially the lobster ravioli. Yum. The drinks and service were excellent. It was really hot outside and could have been cooler in the upstairs dining room, but understandable. We’ll be back!

Very mediocre. We had shared appetizers and then moved onto individual main courses and the overall consensus was that the food ranged from “okay” to “subpar”. The good- steak tartare, schnitzel, cocktails. The underwhelming - pork belly (dry), beef Wellington (massively overcooked), gnocci (rubbery).
The service matched - when inquiring about the best way to enjoy the meal i.e. shareable, family style, tapas style - the waitress was pretty dry on the response and left us feeling like we shouldn’t have asked for advice.
Average pricing for the food - $20-$40 for entrees.

If you do come here sit at the bar, order cocktails and stick to the appetizers!

The food was fine but overpriced. The patio is in the alley so not a great patio. We were underwhelmed.

Came here for my birthday brunch with friends and it was absolutely fabulous! We all loved the extensive list of mimosa's and the food was delicious. My quiche was one of the best I've had, and I've had a lot! Can't wait to come back and try dinner!

Really enjoyed our meal here Sat night! Nicely diverse menu without being overwhelmed by choice. The Lobster Ravioli was a real hit with the whole table, and the appetizer portions are very generous. We recommend the buratta and the ham croquettes. Very pleasant outdoor space - recommend wholeheartedly. (Free street parking nearby a bonus surprise)

Each time I go I enjoy it. The outdoor space is like being in your own yard with personalized service.
The food is great and comes out quick. I highly recommend it if you’re going to the theater or not!

We love this cozy and upscale neighborhood restaurant. The food is delicious, the service from Mandy was superb and we love the relaxing vibe. Friday night it was a tad bit noisier than we are used to but everything else outweighed that one small issue. If you haven't been give this place a try.

Only feedback would be the croquettes we’re cold, however, they were still very good. Food was good with something for everyone and the atmosphere is very open and friendly.
