Though I work very close to Mr. Willis I don't often get to go but it is always a treat when I go. I've been a number of times for business and pleasure and will continue to go back. The food is exceptional, good wine and great location. It isn't cheap but for Shanghai and the quality, it's worth it.

After a week in Shanghai I was craving bacon and eggs , simple to the point . Easily wanted, not easily found. Turn to web and find Mr Willis , pictures and reviews all said go !! Honestly the best Eggs Benedict (if you could even compare to that ) I have ever had. English muffin, eggs just perfect, smoked... More

yes the food is good but pricey, i went here because i loved discovering new restaurant and hopefully to enjoy the experience, Personally i think the workers here are terrible, you cannot feel the passion when it comes to service, i mean this is not cheap restaurant. The manager or the Head Foreign Waitress who looks very old is very... More

Went alone Sunday evening without a reservation fearing they would be full. The restaurant turned out to be well visited but still with a few empty tables. For starters I had the olives, bread and cheesesticks. The olives were very good but the bread was somewhat plain and the cheesesticks were downright boring/not worth eating :-/ For the main course... More

This is another restaurant that was recommended to me. I must say that the food was superb but maybe on the expensive side. So once a month treat is ok. As usual in China, the service was super quick. Everything was fresh as far as I can see. Fresh fruit juice, fresh seafood and fresh fruits for dessert. The clientele... More

Have a few complaints, I would hope at the price they charge for food that the wait staff would pay more attention to the patrons. I saw a pregnant lady waving her hands at the wait staff only to be ignored again and again. I felt so bad that I helped her wave him down, but when we finally got... More

I looked up good western restaurants to go to for my visit to Shanghai. This place came up and the reviews were very positive. To my disappointment, the selection of food was so limited and not worth the price. RMB78 for a tiny bowl of salad ?!! And the pizza was salty. The decor and ambience was nice but I... More

Mr. Willis is one of our favorite restaurants in Shanghai, and that is not only because we live just around the corner. Though you have to reserve because it is immensely popular, this is the place we choose when we want a relaxing dinner. The chicken liver pate is wonderful, so is the sea bass ceviche. Their signature fried chicken... More

Great menu both food and wine / spirits. Really only for the elite. Prices are very high but the food is amazing. Call for reservation.
