    My wife and I have enjoyed every meal at this place. Last night she had the Beef Wellington and I was more than satisfied with my Short Rib meal. We will return in the near future

    My friends and I decided last minute to grab dinner and were hoping to find someplace with a patio—Willow Room had plenty of space and their outside seating is super cute! Our waitress was nice and attentive, the food and drinks were yummy. Overall 10/10 experience. I think this place would be great for a date too. The portion sizes are just right and their bar area is really chic!

    Great spot! Lovely ambience in a wonderful Lincoln Park neighborhood. Excellent service, plenty of space, food came out quickly and was tasty. Our waitress was wonderful. The portion sizes were a tad smaller than anticipated. Otherwise, check this spot out!

    Really fantastic service. The restaurant has a great vibe to it. The appetizers were good and the sides were good but I had the halibut and it was not good. Felt sick after it unfortunately. Great spot but avoid the halibut.

    We dined there before a show at Steppenwolf. Told the server that we needed to be done by 730pm. He took our order 7pm. Had to ask several times where was our food( Kale salad and pasta) slow service. Food finally arrived at 740pm. Had to take I to go. No dinner before show. Food later that evening good. Service BAD.

    I want to take a moment to say thank you to the lovely staff at the Willow Room for making note of my request. My fiancé and I had our first date there and wanted to sit at the same window table to celebrate our engagement. The food and drinks were wonderful as always. This place has a big place in my heart and I enjoy it every time we go.

    We waited 20 minutes from the time of our reservation before we were sat. We checked in with the hostess twice. We had to get our waiter’s attention to order our drinks and food. The dining room was not even full. I had a much better experience for dinner. The food is excellent!!

    We went for brunch. The restaurant was not full but service was very slow! We waited 20min for coffee. And we had to ask multiple times for things like condiments, some of which never arrived. Maybe the staff is still learning/being trained but brunch for two took 2hrs. Food was really good - well prepared and tasty.

    Brunch food was very innovative and tasty. Enjoyed the donuts as an appetizer. Floor under table was a mess with pieces of toast and other foods under our feet. Noise was very loud so we had trouble hearing each other.

    Food was great, drinks were even better. Tuna tartare was an outstanding app choice. We had scallops and Beef Wellington, both impressed and happy with our meals. Service was a bit slow, but our server seemed to have 12 tables, so more of a staffing issue it seemed. Would definitely recommend for date night

    Burrata appetizer was terrific. The Nicoise Salad was also very good. The beef Wellington was unfortunately terrible. It was a poor cut of meat, poorly prepared (virtually no mushroom coating in the crust) and overcooked. They really should just get it off the menu.
