Great food, the shrimp and grits in particular, crummy service this time.

Party of 4 -- All very much enjoyed the food and atmosphere at our table.
After dinner drinks at bar were minorly marred by a bartender who was noticeably unpleasant and little chilliness (sitting by the door). The chilliness was rectified by a small space heater.
No big worries... We will be back!

First time visit - for business dinner left us very pleased. I had high expectations ( since the place is run by the same group who owns "Spoon" in East End), and Willow totally met them. We arrived earlier and were able to take advantage of the Happy Hour menu. Everything was very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. For dinner - we opted for variety of small plates instead of entrees: flat bread, mussels, mac and cheese, and crabcakes were outstanding.
If you have not yet tried this place, plan your visit soon!

The Willow is a very nice restaurant that excelled in customer service. We went on Valentine's Day which they had a special limited menu that we were unaware of and was not given the opportunity to order from the regular menu. So, my fiance and I are dieting and did not eat the dessert that was included in the $65 price of the meal. The food was really tasty and the presentation was appealing.

My fiance and I went on Valentine's Day. The food was excellent, however, I wasn't please with Willow jacking up their prices in excess of $15 per person because it's Valentine's Day, all with a limited menu. I was never told there was a limited menu, nor was I told that limited menu was $65/person. If I'd have known that, I'd have stayed home and made my fiance dinner instead. A crab cake, a pork chop and a panna cotta dessert should NEVER cost anyone $65. $50, sure. They did have the nerve to tell me that they were offering free Valet Parking, though. It'd have rather parked myself and ordered off of the dinner menu. Just insane.

I will say, the food was excellent, but I would never go back here for any special occasion.

Victoria is an amazing personable server. We've had her multiple times and she is great, very attentive but not overbearing.

We typically go to Willow about once a year. Since the last time we were there, the menu has been quite restricted. I felt like I didn’t have as many options. It could just be my perception but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I have in the past. It was not bad; in fact it was quite good. But it wasn’t exceptional as I previously thought it to be.

Focused menu with each having some gourmet flair. Each dish selected by our party was rated delicious. Great wine. Pricey, but worth it for that important meeting or special occasion. Attentive service.

Had not been for brunch before and it turned out to be just as good as dinner. Toward the end of the meal, it got louder as it became more crowded but that is to be expected. Food was amazing, especially as a southern transplant always looking for good grits around here—awesome. Definitely will return!
