This is a nice place to share with your hubby or friends. Beautiful decor and great service. Menu has lots to offer from seafood to steak, sandwiches and salads. Pasta is a good choice too.

Won't be going again.food is is a 5 on a scale of 10. Very lack luster. I never care about price in fine dinning. But I care about service and both time we must have got the new guy.because they knew nothing about good service. To bad the one up North is always good. I would go in just for... More

We've been here several times and each times it has been a great experience. It is at the mall so it is a bit of a surprise that the resturant itself is so nice but it is well worth the visit. The sea bass is excellent.

We went to the willow for our Valentines meal on Friday the 13th. I ordered the king size prime rib and my wife ordered the scallops. My prime rib came stone cold like it was straight out of the refrigerator. My wife ordered the scallops and she only received for small scallops on her plate with 5 very thin pieces... More

I'v eaten there several times and also had our company Christmas dinner / party there. Always great variety of dishes, great service and nice atmosphere. They are very accomadating for something special, such as I had them bring flowers I bought to the table for my girlfriend.

I recently enjoyed my first full meal at this restaurant, however my husband has been here on many occasions for work meetings. He always spoke highly of his experience at lunchtime, so we thought we'd try it out together for dinner. I was quite impressed with their food and wine menus - and because it was a special occasion we... More

The WIllow Tree in set in a mall in Saginaw. It is very upscale, with a very elegant feel to it. We ate there for lunch just before Thanksgiving, and it was quiet and peaceful. The food is somewhat expensive for the area: side soup or salad will be $6, lunches are in the $15 - $25 range for the... More

Great food; a little expensive, but nice to have this kind of option for special occasions. Both of our entrees were excellent; well prepared and as described. Our service was exceptional as well. We will definitely be returning for our next celebration!

All food was very spicy and heavy. Seemed as thought you are not allowed to not like anything in the restaurant. Sorry, but there is a lot of hype but we didn't see. Cloth tablecloths. This is sort of elegant but pricey. We tried once before but did not care for entrée. Wont be returning. Sorry.
