    Food and servers were excellent. However, no one at the Willow’s restaurant, except for the receptionist acknowledged my birthday. None of the servers even greeted me on my birthday, 6/13. None offered a birthday dessert too. Such a disappointment because it was our first time at the Chumash Casino and first time at the Willow’s. Other than than, the rating would’ve been 5 stars.

    Our server was excellent. The food was excellent. We were seated on the patio and it was ok. We did have our choice of where to sit. It was such a nice day we decided to sit outside. The interior dining room was pretty. The patio was bare and lacked ambiance. Good shade coverage.

    Hubby and I had appetizers at Willows last weekend. We had previously enjoyed the seared carpaccio, but this time the plate was wet, the cucumbers were limp, no edible flowers, and at the end the meat turned gray! Very disappointed. We also had ahi tartare which was decent, but the dish made it difficult to scoop out the ahi without spilling the sauce. And the crab cakes were just ok this time. We eat at Willows almost every month - and though the service was great, the food was not.

    Marco was a great server! Efficient, kind and accommodating. Best beef carpaccio I have ever had & the risotto was perfect. My friend adored her steak, wines & dessert were spot on too! Would definitely recommend!! Best meal in our 5 day stay in Solvang.

    The Willows was fantastic! Two of us went on a Tuesday night for my birthday. Our reservation was for 6 pm. We ate outside (highly recommended). It is heated, but not needed that night. We were seated at the best table. Close to the fireplace and next to the edge, which made it very private and quiet. You are surrounded by trees and greenery, so there is no traffic, pedestrian or vehicles to be seen. I had the filet, medium well, which was delicious and cooked to perfection, but not as good as our chef at home. It wasn’t melt in your mouth, cut with a fork. Delicious none the less and I would order it again. My husband had the jidori chicken. It was delicious and tender and moist and well seasoned. Chris is the best server we have ever had anywhere. He is extremely professional, friendly, fun and courteous. I could go on, but you get the picture. I highly recommend eating outside. The area is large so you aren’t jammed in with other diners. And ask for Chris. All the staff at Chumash are very friendly and helpful. PS: they have a vegan menu also.
