The Steak was amazing, but I paid a lot for 4 pieces of shrimp an as appetizer. 3/5 stars for that.

I was staying at Chumash Resort with my wife and another couple. We both live in the Pismo Beach area and were a little familiar with Willows. We were all very please with the service and the food. A great dining experience and I would recommend to anyone!

Had a splendid time at Willows. We were there celebrating a 3 year anniversary. We were gifted a greeting card signed by the staff, which we found to be so thoughtful and cute! We were also given an ice cream desert on their behalf as part of our celebration. We felt very loved. Our server, Jessica, was super sweet. The restaurant itself is really nice and romantic. Also, the bar seems really cool. Thank you, Willows!

The good and overall service was great. It was annoying that we had reservations and had to wait about 20 minutes and eventually sat at an oversized table because the Three Dog Night performance was not taken into consideration. Concert goers took tables so there were not enough tables to cover reservations.

Great meal, well presented, our waiter was excellent, perfect martinis to start our meal with a excellent shrimp cocktail.
I just thought the restaurant lacked coziness and ambiance. We have eaten at many of the Indian casinos better restaurants, aqua Caliente. Barona and pechanga and they are just more inviting.
But I would definitely come back if i had the opportunity to be back in the area.

We had a wonderful dinner with outstanding service. It is located in the casino and there were very rambunctious groups nearby which made it very noisy.

Very impressed with the service and food. My only one negative experience was being somewhat close to the bar area. The people there were loud at times and made the atmosphere a little disappointing.

Perfect place to relax for dinner. Food quality is always good, staff is very attentive. We always stop by early so it’s quiet and not rushed.

We visit the Willows every time we are at the Chumash and this visit was the first disappointing one..we came earlier than our reservation and it was NOT busy, just a few tables around. A party of 3, we only ordered 3 salads and three a la carte items (side of mac n cheese and two baked potatoes). That's it. It took OVER an hour and a half for our food to arrive. Pretty sad as we wanted to get back out to the gaming floor.

It was a favorable evening. We had the scallops sitting on risotto. Delicious. The pino was good and my husband had Jamison. It was my birthday and they acknowledged it with a dish of ice cream with Happy Birthday written with chocolate. The service was wonderful and I really believe we will come back.

Steak and sides were amazing. Put us in large side room for our party of 5 and we felt so vip! Thanks for making birthday dinner with friends so special! Gave us our choice to select type of steak knife which was nice touch.

Overall was ok...Went for moms birthday. Appetizers were good. When ordering the main course, she asked for the mixed seafood grill and advised the waiter she doesn’t like swordfish since it is firm. But he stated it won’t be too firm. What she gets is only the swordfish with no mixed grill...after we finished dinner, we were not asked for dessert and then waited for the check for over 7 minutes.

Food and service were excellent! I was really looking forward to trying the Prime Rib but unfortunately, it wasn’t available so went with the rib eye steak. Steak was very good and service was great.

Food was good but the service was horrible. This is the second time in a row that our server did not bring our appetizers, with the last time bringing them after we received the main course when he realized his mistake. It also took a good 15 minutes after we were finished to get our tab as he had forgot about us being we were put into the overflow room. We expect a lot more when spending 200 dollars on a meal.

I originally made a reservation for Willow's on Friday Night. We ate there before the Tyler Henry Show and it was delicious, and the Waiter's/Staff/Food Service was exceptional as well as the food.
Needless to say, we decided to go back on Saturday Night, and again the food, staff, waiters were exceptional.

We allowed an hour and a half for dinner before seeing a show. First, the wine and cocktails were on a laptop that didn't work. The waiter started to take drink orders and wasn't familiar with what the bar offered. He came back for appetizer orders and only asked half the table. I got my appetizer 45 minutes later. I told them to take it back because our dinner was finally about to be served. It took over an hour and fifteen minutes to get our dinner. We only had 15 minutes to eat. We were doubled charged for our cocktails. The jidori chicken was bland. It was not jdori chicken. The whole dinner was terrible and terrible service to match. Will never go back

We like the Willows and dine there often. The Willows salad is GREAT and I especially like the jidori chicken. Service is good and we like the quiet. Occasionally the bar can be a little noisy.

Willows provided one of the most delicious meals we have ever had. We ordered 2 different steaks that were cooked to perfection. They were so large that we have continued to enjoy the leftovers in sandwiches. The server, Irma, was very attentive while not being overly so. Willows was not crowded as it was a weeknight which gave us a chance to chat with her. She brought us a complimentary dessert when she found out we were celebrating our 50th anniversary next month.

I'll never go again because you must walk thru a large smoke filled casino to get to the restaurant. The food was just ok. Bread basket was very good. Ceasar said was very average, watery dressing. Steak was ok, not worth $61. for q12 ounces. Service
