We sat outside on a crisp fall Wednesday. The twinkly lights and fall decor were lovely. The Autumnsl & Caeser salad were both on point. The mushroom risotto was delicious but not overly rich...just right. The creme brûlée was treat. The Italian wine from the Piedmont region was crisp and minerally but not acidic. The service was easy going and well paced. Great evening!
Our dinner the other evening was perfect! We sat on deck and all the fall decorations provided a great ambience. The bread service with the olive oil balsamic was fantastic. The clam chowder not heavy with cream but heavy with clams and delish! We had the rigatoni & also the autumn salad w/ chicken added dressed perfectly. Both were so yummy and our server was very friendly and attentive.
Celebrated my birthday out on the deck - it was wonderful, a memorable occasion. The weather was warm, the view delightful, the service outstanding, and the food quite delicious. Wonderful time. Thank You Willow Creek.
Great food. Very high mark up on wine. Higher than some downtown steakhouses. Best chicken I've had in awhile.
We ate outside on the patio. It was chilly but that was our preference. Our server braved the cold on our behalf. The eggs Benedict with smoked salmon was over the moon fantastic. This is a favorite place for us and the food and drink is consistently wonderful. You have to try their Sangria, even if you don't like Sangria (which I generally, do not). It is special.
Love the holiday decorations!!
Willow Creek never disappoints. The food is always amazing..and the ambience is incredible. This is our go to destination for special occasions and brunch!
Delicious food, amazing ambiance & stellar service as always!
We went to Willow creek to celebrate a birthday with close friends. They continue to amaze us with fantastic food and service. What a great spot near downtown evergreen with big city quality all around.
A wonderful meal at a fantastic place. We had the risotto with scallops and the Rigatoni and both were absolutely fabulous!
I ordered the special - scallops with celery purée and was blown away! So delicious. Our waiter was delightful and as always, service was impeccable. We wanted to eat outside as it had been a gorgeous (no wind) day and the view from the deck is always lovely. Gets chilly out there so would love to see some outdoor heaters added to keep the outdoor seating a little warmer as the evenings get chilly.
We have eaten here before, and the service was much better. We had a 5:45 reservation and were not seated until 7! I understand that with COVID there are new guidelines, but I thought that was excessive especially since we had reservations. Our waiter did not tell us what was on the cheese board and the dessert he said they had was not correct another waiter came over and told us what it was and it was not something we would have picked. The bartender - AWESOME! She was so nice and did a really good job. I think her name was Amy, but I am not certain
We waited 50 minutes to be seated for a reservation we had made days prior. Our server spilt a drink all over our table and got my order wrong. My food was cold and my sons burger was overdone and burnt. Seriously an awful all round experience.
Great vibe, view, service and food!!! Definitely worth the beautiful drive from Denver!
The salmon was cooked to order and we also got the special which was a beef short rib. I would recommend both.
Excellent food and wonderful customer service! Will definitely go again when back in Evergreen!
Our anniversary dinner was delicious and we always enjoy our experience at Willow Creek!
The welcome was friendly, atmosphere beautiful, service splendid and food was amazing. This was our 1st time eating at Willow Creek but will not be our last. Thank you for making our first date night in about 2 years so wonderful.

Lovely patio overlooking Evergreen Lake -food and service were good but you pay a premium for that view!
Nice wine selection, great food. One of the best restaurants in Evergreen
Great food, and great service. Definitely will go back!
I love this restaurant and like to go for special occasions but over the years, they always have the same thing. My bun was hard and the pork didn't have much sauce. I could have gotten this at any restaurant but expect more from Willow Creek.
Surprised a friend for her birthday. She had never been here before and it was so fun and a beautiful day!
Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. True local gem.
Wonderful food and ambiance overlooking the lake. The service by Martin was superior
A nice place, but comes across as though its been a while since they challenged themselves; little bit too comfortable about where/who they are. Food was OK, but not GREAT ( nor worth the asking price), drinks were expensive - compared to their competition. Service was OK, but we wished we had the waitress that was serving other tables rather than the guy that served us: he was a true 15%'er, she would have earned at least 25% from us.
Most excellent. A very enjoyable evening!
We had the most wonderful experience and food! My 86 year old mother said the fish and chips are the best she's ever had. The entire restaurant staff is very personable and professional giving special attention to all patrons. Martin S. was our server along with another young man whose name I can't recall - they were both so attentive and pleasant!
The restaurant has the nicest ambiance along with lovely views of Evergreen Lake.
Totally special experience all the way around! We'll be back!
Our appetizer and entree was delicious, as was the house salad. The chicken ceasar salad, however, was just so so. Once we were served, service was good, but they were slow to get to us. This is still a favorite restaurant of ours, especially on the patio that overlooks Evergreen Lake.
All heavy food, fried, soggy salmon salad, summer salad had only lettuce, sprinkles of cheese, a few beans, no veggies, no bread offered, totally unimaginative menus, friendly staff, nice view. Go for drinks and eat elsewhere
Everything was very nice. The staff did a great job distancing the tables inside and out.
Great experience! Can’t wait to do again! Service was impeccable and loved dining outside.
The service is pretty slow on Saturday brunch around 12 noon. At least 2 other tables seated after us - one with 2 ppl, the other with 6 ppl, got their food before us. We ordered before one of them got in. Was told by the wait staff they have a card & truffles to celebrate anniversary of my in-laws. Our waitres came right when we're seated and asked who are celebrating. It's supposed to be a surprise. No mention of cards nor truffles. My in-laws took the time to download venmo to pay with 'cash' as recommended but was quickly told to use card before he finish explaining he's good intent. I wasn't particularly happy our waiter. Other than that, the food is good but choices for brunch is limited. No sides of toast with your brunch either. I'd however recommend this place, hoping you'll have better experience.
All was perfect except social distancing forced us in between 2 curtains
Love this restaurant! Views are amazing and staff is always to pleasant and accommodating. Felt completely safe eating there with all their procedures in place.
We love this place; good food and of course the setting is special, the menu is a bit limited, but everything I have had has been excellent
The setting next to Evergreen Lake is very tranquil. Food and drink was very good, and the wait staff really know their role. They are helpful and friendly, but not overbearing.
They were really busy but the food and service was excellent.
We had mentioned it was our anniversary and the extra thought and attention we received made us feel very special! They even brought us some house made chocolate truffles and a handwritten card congratulating us. That patio, the wine list...We will definitely be back.
