We are vegan and the two vegan entrees on their special menu were absolutely delicious. My husband and I were just so impressed with the presentation and the flavor of our meals. He had the vegan steak and I had the veggie taurine. The waiter brought us pickled veggies for an appetizer and also some yummy berry sorbet for desert. I would definitely recommend this restaurant

Food and service were excellent..... Would recommend sharing (i.e. Cobb salad) is enough for three people, same with sides...... Shared a rib eye (18 oz) and with the starters and sides was more than enough..... Brownie dessert was a perfect ending to a great meal.....

We had an excellent dining experience. We had a very nice corner table in one of the smaller rooms. It was very private. Food was excellent, but our server, Benjamin, was outstanding and really made our night. He was very attentive without being intrusive. He allowed us to have a very relaxed experience and made our night very enjoyable. Benjamin is a true pro that take your dining experience to the next level. Seek him out if you can.

Food: Ordered a top sirloin steak medium temp and it was average. The meat was seasoned lightly and very chewy. The texture on the outside was similar to liver and the inside was almost rare. My friend ordered the same steak and was well seasoned but the cook was also off. We ordered a side of French fries, Brussels sprouts, asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. All the sides were on point except for the fries, which were over cooked and also very chewy. The Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes were delicious and my favorite out of the whole meal.

The service was great. The waiter comped the fries and brought us a birthday treat for my friend.

Overall, I would not order the steak again but would go back for the dining experience.

We celebrated my parents’ 65tg anniversary their last night and it was fantastic. A little pricier than what I remember but they still have the best Willow Salad and the crab cakes were fabulous.

We dined at The Willows on Monday, June 7 to celebrate my birthday. Everything started well. Nice cocktails and delicious salads. But things went downhill from there. We ordered a bottle of wine, and fifteen minutes later the waiter returned to inform us it was not available. We ordered both of our steaks medium rare and they arrived medium/medium well. The waiter did bring us fresh steaks that were cooked to the correct temp and had a very good flavor. But the baked potato and brussel sprouts we ordered were left on the table and had gone cold by the time the new steaks arrived. The waiter brought fresh sides to us, but the baked potato was over cooked, yet lukewarm. The brussel sprouts were hot and delicious.

The manager did comp our sides, which was appreciated. But that was not enough to change our opinion of the overall experience. Definitely not what we expected from a Four Diamond restaurant.

The prices are very high for what you get. My wife’s side of meatballs had little or no taste and no texture. Also, they don’t serve ice tea which is my preference.

Our table was ready right on time . The seating staff was very friendly and cordial. The service was fantastic from beginning to the end. The food was was unbelievable, my wife and I had the 8 oz filet mignon and it melted in our mouths. I would highly recommend if you go to the Chumash Casino make a reservation (needed) at the Willows.

Pros: Food was extremely delicious from the bread/cracker basket, to the appetizers and main course, to our beverages. Server was absolutely fantastic--kind, prompt, and knowledgeable, and atmosphere in restaurant was nice and comfortable as well. Overall a really wonderful dinner.
Cons: Food was a bit pricy for this area (and for dinner at a casino). After appetizers, it took quite a while for our main dishes to arrive at our table. We were just kind of sitting around waiting awkwardly...

It was a birthday dinner, our party were 8, they did seating us in a room, raft after they have to move us because the room was for 14 people.!

We did move to a round plastic table the ones people use to rent for home parties. Even with the darkest of the room you can noticie that the table was dirty, they don even have the delicacy of putting a blanket on the table so guest can no notice the plastic table.!

Food was some plates excellent and some no so good.!
