Let me start this off by saying Willy's is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. The food is always amazing. Great ambiance and just a cool, local spot. I've been there a lot and it's usually 5 stars across the board. However, this last visit we had some pretty underwhelming service. I'll give the server the benefit of the doubt and just hope she was having a bad day or was really tired, but to say she payed little to no attention to our table would be an understatement. We constantly had to flag her down for drinks or any other standard service, such as removing a used appetizer plate. Anyway, I still love Willy's and will be back. Hopefully next time the service will be back to the 5 stars we're used to.

I really like Willy's. I go for the sushi. My wife says the steaks are good. It's a small place, I like the atmosphere, and convenient for me since it's only 10 minutes away. Food comes to you quickly. I like to take my time when I go out to eat, so sometimes I feel a little rushed when they are real busy. But, I recommend it and will keep going back for more.

We Love Willy's. Food is great. Wait staff is great.

What we didn't love was our table. It had a bench on one end and people could not move over. If we used the bench we would be in the middle of the aisle. They didn't seem to want to move us. It was tight and put a damper on the evening at the beginning, which we were looking forward to.

Yet, when we looked around there were lots of parties of two in other booths. Just think it would have made more sense to put our party of 4 in one of those and a party of 2 in one of ours.

Food was fantastic, my girlfriend had the Filet Au Poivre, I had the Swordfish Nantucket and both were cooked to perfection and had wonderful flavor. Server was very nice and attentive, and everyone else was very pleasant. Willy's has always been one of my favorite restaurants, as my grandfather used to take us here all the time, and they did not disappoint once again! Would recommend highly to anyone who enjoys great food and a classy atmosphere

Willy's is always a great place to eat! We've been going for many years.
The food is excellent, the wine list extensive, and the staff is attentive. Service was a bit slower than usual - but not bad. It was unusually busy, especially the Sushi Bar, so things took a bit longer to come out to the table. They've hired a new Head Chef, and while the food was still very good- some of the items were clearly different (the wedge salad was smaller than it used to be, and the dressing seemed different, for example). Overall, another excellent dinner, great ambiance and fabulous cocktails.

We went to Willy's for a business dinner. With lowering costs being in the forefront of a lot of company's mindsets (including mine), it was very enjoyable and satisfying to have steaks that measured up to the great steak houses of the city without the big city prices. Everything came out of the kitchen perfect and timely and service was impeccable.

My wife is a big fan of the food and ambiance. We often go here for holidays since it ia typically pricy but it is the only place I know of with good steak and fresh sushi. A gourmet fried rice dice is the only thing missing from the menu.

Food was terrific as usual. Noise level is as expected for a small "bistro". Waitress...not the greatest. Not as attentive as most would like, I'm not suggesting we should feel like the only patrons, but maybe one of a few. Overall good experience and worthy of a visit.

I love the ambience. The food is perfectly prepared. The service is impeccable. I have been here twice; the first time was during restaurant week and I'm glad I tried it. I brought friends with me this last time and they agreed that this is a special place indeed. Will be returning for my anniversary next month. Thank you for all your efforts in making Willie's steakhouse a neighborhood gem.

Once again the food was cooked to perfection and delicious.
My 85 year old mother was a little cold and there was a glitch or misunderstanding regarding a small birthday cake, but she enjoyed her special evening with family.

We would surely dine there again and recommend it to others.

Despite having reservations we waited over a half hour for our table. The food was outstanding. We had oysters Rockefeller as an app and filets with garlic mashed and broccoli for dinner. Really good and fairly priced if short, wine list.
