What a disappointment

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... read 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.

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.

Been here for appetizers, sandwiches, and full meals-AWESOME service with inviting atmosphere which is personal and relaxing. You would never know you were amongst the mall! My favorite is to go for late evening desert and Irish coffee!

This is a favorite meeting place for our friends from Ohio as it is just off the highway. It is actually located at the entrance of a mall but offers great food, some unique creations from a good chef and at affordable prices. Their menu ranges from great sandwiches to top notch offerings like Chilean Sea Bass, lava rock prepared... More

This is a great restaurant that is tucked in the mall. Bob was our server who was terrific. The food was awesome everything was piping hot. Our appetizers of muscles and goat cheese salad was great. We had Sea Bass and Steak and both were superb! We would certainly go back.
