Waited 20 mins to be seated with a reservation. Service and food was only ok - over priced for what you get!

Not what we’ve come to expect from Willy’s, the summer menu was not a good representation of what they normally serve up. Disappointing at best and the bananas foster...please! Stick to there regular menu.

I took my wife there for her birthday. We go a couple times a year and always have a great meal. Highly recommend it.

We’ve been here many times, and it’s our go to for special occasions like this 20th anniversary celebration. Our server really tried to rush us. We had to keep trying to get him to let us have a relaxing dinner. I ordered the bone in sirloin, which was cooked correctly but it was super chewy; like rubber. Not good especially for $45. I rarely complain but this was not edible. The manger and cooks examined it and completely agreed with me. They tried to make things right and offered to cook a filet instead. The filet was delicious, except it took a long time to arrive; well after my wife’s meal had been delivered. Pretty frustrating and disappointing especially since it was an important celebration. The manager was definitely concerned, apologized, and really did her best to fix the situation. However the poor service along with bad steak were too much. I was so disappointed as I always rave about this place

There is no meal like one spent sitting at Kenzo’s sushi bar. He and his right-hand chef make the meal memorable.

Often hard to get a reservation except for very early or very late but we lucked out on a summer Sunday night. The steaks are excellent as was the surf and turf that included shrimp. Great caesar salad and sushi appetizer as well

This is undoubtedly one of my favorite restaurants. It is a Boston quality steakhouse with the convenience of the suburbs. Superb steaks and impeccably professional service. I cannot recommend it enthusiastically enough.

Willys was great as always. Our server Sharon introduced our friends, who were there for the first time, to the menu and offered her suggestions as well to help them make their decision. The krona rubbed sirloin steak was cooked perfectly and the sushi was phenomenal.!! Kenzo, the head sushi chef even sent us couple of samples to us to try his new additions . I highly recommend Williams for a nice dining experience.

Although we have been a while, we have dined at Willy's before, Sunday's visit was not as enjoyable.
I thought the meals were over priced, my Porterhouse was charred little too much and somewhat fatty, and my son's Delmonico was also charred or seared too much,for his liking,but my wife said her Salmon special was wonderful.

We also had a $50 Phantom Gourmet gift card , which was not honored! even though we checked the website prior to deciding to dine at Willy's, for my wife's birthday dinner, so that added to the expense of meal as well.

I hope this was an isolated incident! as we know and like the owner.

We had dinner at Willys on Saturday night to celebrate our sons birthday. He chose Willy’s over all of our favorite restaurants in Boston. Our waitress Sharon was awesome as always. We have always enjoyed the professional waitstaff at Willys. The salad and coconut shrimp starters were great. Our main courses were unfortunately very disappointing. The Delmonico steaks, we had (3) orders were the thinnest we have ever been served between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick. Because of how thin the meat was the cook was over on all of them. The Tequila Swordfish was so strong it felt like it had been soaked in alcohol totally not enjoyable. All of the sides were perfect and the NY style cheesecake was wonderful.

Couldn’t have been more disappointed with the mains. Very much an off night in the Willys kitchen. Hopefully it’s not the new normal.

Didn’t live up to the hype or expectations. Best part of the evening was a good waiter. A $45.00 steak Cooked to medium ought not be difficult to chew.

The steak was excellent, we got the Truffle butter and the Kona rib steaks and they were wonderful.

The wedge salad was very good as well.

The brussel sprouts were not good at all.

The Truffles/Lobster Mac and cheese wasn't good either. Very disappointing especially at the price.

The crab cakes very decent but not really worth the cost.

The service was average, would have been good if we were at TGI Fridays but for a higher end place it wasn't very good. No refills on our drinks, we were next to the hostess station as well and the servers kept congregating there and complaining about each other. Out server was nice but didnt really do much to impress and seemed distracted.

Overall disappointing experience but the steak was amazing. If I'm paying a premium price I expect premium service. Aside from the steak it was below average. The valet was great as well.

Love the food at Willy's. Always feel it is a bit high priced so we normally only go for special occasions. The decor feels dated but the food never disappoints.

We arrived early to have a drink, bartenders were great. Made a reservation so there was no wait. Food was delicious and staff was very friendly. Prices were very reasonable. We enjoyed cremè brûlée dessert and it was amazing! Would definitely go again.

We were there celebrating our aniversary. They sat us at the table with the picture over it titled "Romantic Evening " . They also had a card from the restaurant welcoming us on our aniversary along with bits of celebratory ribbons on the table. A very nice and unexpected surprise. Our server Karen was quite attentive offereing sugestions. The food was well prepared, lovely presentation and quite tasty. A very nice night, indeed. Thank you.

Be prepared to drop some serious money here! However, it is absolutely delicious, drink included. I went a few years ago and had gotten filet mignon that was amazing. This more recent time around we went the sushi route. But it's great to have the option for the best of both worlds! Had the seaweed salad, which was amazing, and oyster's which were delicious. We tried 4 different sushi roles and loved all of them. We also loved our waitress, who was so sweet and funny. She suggested mai tai martinis with a rum float that were amazing!! Ended the night with espresso martinis, because why not drink your dessert? Like I said, the bill added up, but I'd do it all over again!

Great food and our waitress was great. The only problem was the manager(I think, very tall with dark hair) was rude to the hostess and a couple other workers while we were there which was disappointing because everyone else was really nice. She was fine with us, but not so much her staff. Food was great, we were sat right next to the kitchen so it was a bit loud but it didn’t bother us at all. Overall great visit

Willy's is a special-occasion restaurant with reasonable prices. Clearly, this is the area's top steakhouse, and you would be hard pressed to find a better meal, regardless of cost. That's why we have so many special occasions there.
