Willy’s Steakhouse Grill & Sushi Bar Ratings and Reviews
After making a 5:00 reservation on OpenTable, I called the restaurant directly to move the reservation back to 4:00 (a time not available on OpenTable). I explained that the dinner was a special occasion (an 86th birthday) and asked for a nice table. Four of the party of five drove over 2 hours from separate locations for the dinner. When we arrived at 4:00, there was a sign on the door that they were closed due to a broken pipe. Oddly, their sister restaurant, Amici, around the corner and in a separate building, was also closed due to weather related issues. We were unable to find another restaurant open at that time. I am extremely disappointed that the restaurant didn't have the courtesy to call me to let me know we would have to make other arrangements when they knew it was a special occasion and they had my telephone number! Not good customer service!!
There was a comfortable yet intimate feel to the place.
Staff was friendly and efficient. Everything was done in a timely manner.
Great variety on the food choices. Everything was prepared just right. From the apps to the dessert the food was delicious. Highlight of course was the steak.
Lucky to have such a local gem to be able to go to on a date night. Quiet atmosphere perfect for relaxing and having a nice conversation.
Excellent dinner. One of the freshest seared ahi tuna I’ve had. Steak was incredible, cooked perfectly and tasty. My date had the salmon and it was amazing. Nicely cooked and just the right amount of pistachio coating. Chocolate mousse cake ending the great meal, yummy. Only thing that was so so was the noise level, but as they sat us near their small bar and also by a noisy group it was tolerable.
My fiance and I went to Willy's to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. Our server was attentive, the food was delicious and numerous staff wished us a happy anniversary since I noted that it was on my reservation. It was overall a really nice experience and I would definitely recommend to a friend and will return again.
We are frequent neighborhood visitors to Willy's and we normally have a great experience. This past Saturday evening was the most unpleasant evening we have spent in any restaurant. The noise level was out of control, we found ourselves yelling at each other. Our food took 75 minutes to come out. The food was good, but not worth the price considering the aggravation we had that evening. The manager came over and offered free desert but never apologized for the delay in food or the noise level. This was unacceptable. It will be a very long time, if ever that we return to the restaurant.
We have been here numerous times before and always have had great experience. This occasion we were disappointed by the lack of service and attention to detail. There was a large party that included 3 kids that had portable electronic devices pretty loud. Food took twice as long as normal to come. Part of the mail was cold and no one really came by to ask. Probably due to the large party which sat after us and got their food before ours. I am sure the wait staff were giving them more attention that us and usually we understand. THis was a birthday dinner for two of us and a 9 month pregnant daughter that was hoping for one more adult meal before baby arrives.
Willy's is a favorite of ours in Central Massachusetts. Their steaks are always of the highest quality and prepared perfectly. Service is always prompt and courteous without being intrusive. The prices are quite reasonable and commensurate with the overall dining experience.
I ordered the filet and brussel sprouts-the steak was charred and hard on the outside and the brussel sprouts were hard and undercooked and the stems left on which is like eating bark. There were 3 choices of dressing to choose from for the wedge salad which was underwhelming. I was disappointed since the last time I was there the food was excellent. I hope it was an off night.
The appetizer was oysters rockefeller, very different but good. I had a strip sirloin with gorgonzola sauce. The steak was cooked to my liking (medium rare). It ate as if it was select beef, dry and chewy. The sauce was unrecognizable as Gorgonzola sauce. My dining partner has a filet which was cooked as ordered and very good. Her meal came with several baked stuffed shrimp which were bland. The stuffing was poorly seasoned and the shrimp were apparently farm raised. Two sides of vegetables were ordered, they were terrific. A great glass of wine and excellent wait service, all for $150 dollars. I found the restaurant to be a poor value and very noisy.
