Willows Bistro was highly recommended and it did not disappoint. We had the salmon and scallops, home made potato chips (topped with parmesan, blue cheese), and humus. All fresh and excellent flavor. Will be top of our list when we are back in town.

Willows is just consistently great! We have frequented this place for ~5 years have only one mild caution and that is the noise level on Friday/Saturday nights.

We came on a relaxed Saturday, attracted by the locavore style and the positive reviews. Couldn't handle the noise inside, but we were seated outside easily on the old railroad-car loading platform. From the menu, she picked a chicken and pear salad and was very...More

I don't know how they lured the chef who creates interesting flavors, textures and combinations, but they ought not let him go. I have heard his sous chefs have followed him here. One of the best things about Willow, with all the one way streets...More
