We went there for our 43rd wedding anniversary. We were seated inside but changed our minds to sit outside because the weather was just perfect. There was something running nearby, like an air-conditioner, but we decided not to move.

$18.00 per glass for the house cab was a little bit much but everything else was perfect.
We each had the filet mignon which was done to perfection! $51.00 The sides were ala carte. I had really yummy creamed spinach ($5) and my husband had a giant baked potato for $10.00. They surprised us with a scoop of super good raspberry sorbet with fruit topping and Happy Anniversary written in chocolate syrup on the rim of the plate. It was a great meal. Our dinner was $162.00 plus tip, and it was worth it for the special day and perfect weather and service.

The service was excellent, food delicious! The dining room was full, which was a surprise considering the need for social distancing. It was also a bit noisy. We dis enjoy it and will return again. Thank you.

Loved it!!! Very good social distancing made it a little sparse, but the staff made up for it with excellent service and the food was delicious with HUGE portions. We over ordered but the doggie bags were put on ice in our room and devoured again the next day at an outdoor winery picnic.

Best calamari ever!!!

We celebrated our 19 year wedding anniversary at Willows and it did not disappoint! The tables were set far enough apart for social distancing, our server was delightful and the food was AMAZING! I highly recommend the grilled artichoke. We look forward to dining there again in the near future.

The problem wasn't just the waiter not knowing what to do but also the delay in food getting to us. It took them over an hour just to get our main entree and even though they had 15 people walking around us trying to clean bacteria or the windows or dirt from the floor nobody was waiting on us or attempting to the food or anything else of the experience. The expensive domestic Wagyu steak that I got was something considered of a choice steak that someone could buy at Safeway or Raley's and cook themselves. It was not juicy end it was essentially like eating a chewy tri-tip instead of a mouth-watering delicious tender steak. Very disappointing for the cost of money and a four star Diamond restaurant experience.

Although there are several other great restaurants in the area, the Willows is a decent place to eat if you are at the Chumash Casino for an event or an evening. This night we had the Chateaubriand and very much enjoyed the table side presentation as well as the accompanying scalloped potatoes and asparagus. The oysters are very fresh (though with the sweet frozen mignonette that is so in fashion these days) and services was pleasant. Overall, if you're going to be at the Chumash this is a great bet.

We waited at our table for 10 minutes before we were ever greeted. Service was slower than any restaurant I have been too. Food was very expensive, I assumed it would be fine dining. Food was fair. By reading the menu we assumed all entrees were stand alone because all the sides were listed at an additional $10.00. Soon top of the $40-50 plate, we ordered sides. The entrees were served with sides included...so we had way more food than we could eat. Would have been nice if the server would have let us know.
Was very unimpressed.

Good food, but slow service.
I felt my bud & I sat down in the 'No Man's land'. Sat down waited several minutes.Finally I asked one of bus boys. Another minutes, the waitress showed & told us, "NO one told you in my tables".

Food was great as usual. The only bad part about the dinning experience was that we had a reservation and weren’t sat for 20 minutes after our reservation time. While we were waiting we met another group that had been waiting an extra 55 minutes to be seated after their reservation time. Not sure what was going on that night but very underwhelmed at how it was handled, never once a

Excellent service. We were seated right away. Great server. Food was excellent. Cocktails were reasonably priced. Restaurant Week prices were an incredible value. We will be back. Because of the number of people in the space, it was quite noisy, but eventually became more manageable. We will be back.

We went for restaurant week. 3 course meal for $20.20. It’s a great value , the food is very tasty and a nice upscale atmosphere. Unfortunately it’s the only time of year we go because the prices are high. Worth if you can afford it .
