I read most of the Yelp reviews before showing up. Given the sky high expectation we did not think we would be easily impressed. But dinner at the Willows Inn surely did not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed the mainly seafood and fruits & vegetables bite-size...More

To paraphrase Spiderman, with great prices comes great expectations. It is far from normal for me to drop $175 (prix fixe) for a meal and another $45 for the juice pairing, but I had read such amazing accolades of Chef Blaine Wetzel's cuisine, I wanted...More

Almost one year ago to the day my wife and I went to Willows Inn for what proved to be a fantastic meal-farmed, fished and foraged. I have been to the measuring stick-Noma in Copehagen and Willows is in my opinion an equal. The bonus...More
