The food was excellent. Good service is everything and unfortunately it was lacking. Our drinks didn’t come until we’ll after our first dish arrived, and this is after I had to ask for our drinks. We were also sat by a busy intersection to the outside and it was freezing. Because the food was good, I will give it another try, but if the service is not improved, that will be my last time.

Excellent food and service! I recommend the butternut squash shooters and mushroom mac and cheese. Food is served as small plates but they let you add extra servings if your number of people doesn't match the standard serving which I appreciated.

Food was good, as expected. Two issues: first, it was painfully loud at our table. Very close to several boisterous tables and literally could not hear each other at our own table. Secondly, don’t like disparaging service people but our waiter simply disappeared. We sat with empty water and wine glasses, and then empty dishes throughout the meal. She finally stopped by, took our coffee order and left a dessert menu. By the time she came back to see if we wanted dessert, coffee had been served and finished. It was a disappointing and awkward ending. Not planning to return.

My daughter and I came up to go to a show with my cousin at LBC. We were delayed by traffic, so I called to ask them to seat my cousin so she could wait for us in comfort. The hostess was very nice and accommodated our needs. When we finally arrived, we needed to eat quickly to get to the show and the server was very helpful with getting us on our way after a lovely dinner. The food and wine were excellent and we had a great time.

Lovely , attentive staff. We were seated at a table, noisy.

We requested a less noisy table and got it.

The food was as remarkable as ever.


Would nit hesitate to return in a heartbeat - but make a reservation if you’re more 2.

This was one of my favorite restaurants to visit with my wife. We used to go to the old location on Old Redwood Hwy, and have been a couple times to the new location. COVID has affected many things, and sadly one of which is restaurant service. We requested outdoor seating, but were told there wasn't any when we arrived. This alone can be pretty off-putting in these times. Then, service was just slow. Willi's is a small plate restaurant, which means the server will have to return pretty frequently for orders, but this did not happen. Our server took so long after our second plates, that we gave up on our third especially since they ran out of the third choice (foix gras) just before I wanted to order. To top it off, this was my wife's birthday, which I informed them of on my OpenTable reservation. I wasn't expecting a cake or anything special, just good service. Was not to be. We will be passing on this choice next time.

What a delicious lunch with friends celebrating a birthday. The brussel sprouts were very good, and, willingly prepared at my request, without the meat listed on the menu. The baked seasoned skillet bread was exceptionally tasty with the tapanade on it. Friend had the mushroom salad, delicious, though definitely a "small bite."
The special cocktails were standouts for sure. And, we ordered the flourless chocolate dessert to share--wonderful (and it came with a birthday candle atop the ice cream scoop).
Staff was attentive and accommodating. A bit pricey but worth it. Go.

My dinner partners entree arrived 20 minutes late. The lemon desert had ants on the plate. Waiter was apologetic. Said my guests dinner went to another table. Apologized for the ant in the lemon pudding cake. The waiter comp the entree and desert. Have been to restaurant before and was great. This time not so much. My guest was out of town and I wanted to showcase your restaurant. Embarrassing evening all around.
