This is a wonderful restaurant but it is a steak house so if you are looking for more than that you may not like this place. BUT - if you love a great steak now and again this is worth seeking out. We were there to enjoy a slow meal, take our time and enjoy the company and fine weather... More

Loved the decor, right out of an old western movie. Casual friendly vibe, good service & yummy food. The Fava bean soup was fresh & creamy. Best potato gnocchi ever! Felt well taken care of. The chef even came over for a quick chat. We'll be back.

It was just ok. The service was slow, and the experience was disappointing. I expected Carmel Valley to be a bit upscale. Boy was I wrong! The place was nearly empty when we arrived at 7:30pm, which should have been a clue for us to go somewhere else.

If you are looking for a good steak or lamb, this is a wonderful restaurant. The lighting is calming and it's great for the family or a couple getting out for "date night." The staff is always very friendly and they serve excellent cocktails. The only dish I don't order here anymore is the fish. Too much sauce on it... More

We love the petit filet and the baked potato comes with so many treats. The restaurant is old school steakhouse. It's not fancy. I enjoyed that as it's comfortable and has good service. They serve some veggies with ranch dip to start. The bread is awesome, garlicy. Reservations recommended

They do steaks well here, but it would be nice if they offered prime grade beef. The menu says a couple of them are "prime", and maybe they are. Anyway, they are good, so are the salads. Liked the raviolis, even had the sweetbreads. All in all, above average, reliable go-to steakhouse. Full bar, rustic atmosphere.

They leave you a long time waiting,bring you the menu 5 mins later when it was pretty empty. They offered us you bread & butter and never brought it. I came with my daughter, we are Mexicans and ww felt the racism.

Had a great dinner on the patio on a Monday night. Service was great. One salmon and 3 Rib Eye steaks all cooked correctly. We have eaten here many times since 1977, and glad to see Will's is still a decent place go. Change has affected all the world, but by and large I would recommend Will's as a great... More
