    We were seated on the patio which is lovely & warm. The food was hit & miss. The biggest problem of the night was that our server had an edge. We ordered the pork belly pot stickers & asked if she would recommend the ribs as well, she said, "Well, I don't eat that way. I always have something green." Yikes!! She steered us toward the asparagus which, sadly, was overcooked. The server did not check on us for a spell. A staff member approached & asked if we needed anything. I asked if I should wait for our server to order wine and he said he'd be happy to take the order. A minute later our server stopped by to find out what we ordered & to describe the person we ordered from. Apparently it the manager & she was not amused. Anyway, the place is cute & the food was mostly good so if you can lock in a friendly server you will have a nice experience.

    It was a beautiful spring day and I sat outside with my friend and my dog(!) (Already, off to a good start). The 6 small plates we chose were very tasty, especially the heated bread stuffed with gruyere and minced green olives over which lay green olive tapenade and the filet mignon sliders. Even though I had had sufficient and was pleasantly full, I went for the creme brulee for dessert. I savored it so it would last longer. All in all, if you have a lazy afternoon, time isn't an issue, you want to eat al fresco and enjoy one of life's greatest pleasures, i.e. food, I highly recommend Willi's.

    The only positive is that we were seated promptly for our reservation, but then royally neglected for the entire meal! Can’t even say if we had an assigned server, as we had to flag passing workers down to order anything. The food came out so sporadically and slowly that staff attempted to clear the table and shoo us out between plates. The dishes themselves were disappointing (bland overcooked green bean salad, supposedly roasted carrots that seemed boiled and dipped in a sappy sweet sauce). A major miss all round. The place was surprisingly busy. Maybe this spot is the area’s upscaled Applebie’s?

    Willi's was great. I hadn't been there for awhile, and and was a bit concerned that we could only have outside seating, since it was a cold evening. That was not an issue, since we were seated in a nice enclosed patio area with excellent heaters. It was cozy, and the meal and service were great!

    I like the small plates here, you can enjoy a bit of everything. Although they have broccolini on the menu, I asked just for a side of this, the waiter kinda laughed at me and said no they can’t cook it special for you…he didn’t even ask the kitchen. Also I noted it was my wife’s bday but it was never acknowledged.

    Great wine list, ok service … food was oddly seasoned - nearly every dish was overly sweet and if not sweet, devoid of any salt / savory seasoning We had Almonds (actually roasted almonds); sweet / sugary Calamari; very sweet / orange finish Scallop Dumplings; minimal flavor Pork Ribs; sweet sauce / finish Truffle French Fries; properly salted So - overall … not terrible … just kind of seemly really focused on sweet / sugar flavoring

    This place has everything. Wonderfully crafted cocktails, amazing small plate menu and a fantastic wine list including wine flights. Every dish we had was a fresh twist on some old classics and some brand new takes. The scallop dumplings, baked oysters and crab tacos were fabulous. The filet mignon sliders were absolutely decadent. We can't wait to get back here.

    We were a little put off by the presence of a medium sized dog quiet and well behaved, but blocking the aisle. A different dog on a previous visit barked loudly anytime anyone entered the dining area. This dog was silent, though had an accident on the way out of the dining patio that needed to be attended to.

    All the plating and presentation of dishes was generally well done, but every single dish was drowned in sauce. The carrots, which we had before, were overcooked. Very nice wine list.
