Although the "outside" is more or less overlooking a parking lot, it's still nice to sit with a warm breeze and a cocktail. Meal was good and the service was very attentive.

Went for lunch on a Thursday at noon. There were tables available and the hostess said hello and led us to a table on the main aisle. She went back for a cloth to wipe the table and then gestured for us to sit down. One of us walked back up to the podium to get menus. Immediately we notice... More

We arrived on a weeknight without a reservation and were seated promptly. Our server was friendly. Appetizer of shrimp risotto was a good attempt, although the risotto was too chewy. Good flavor, though. My husband had a special of Amberjack fish, which they paired with broccoli and potatoes. I'm not sure that potatoes are the best pairing for fish unless... More

We were a party of 5 who waited too late to get reservations but finagled our way into a table on the patio. The weather was perfect which contributed to our experience. Our server was friendly and reasonably professional. My only complaint was the lack of removal of plates to accommodate the next course. The food was fresh. flavorful and... More

White Sangria took our table by storm. It was awesome! The staff are friendly and helpful. The food was fine and the atmosphere was fun. We thought the food may have been just a little too browned for us but tasted fine. We had an eclectic mix of appetizers and meals at our table and everyone was pleased.

After arriving in Winston Salem and checking in at The Brookstown across the street, we were advised to check out Willow's by the hotel staff. We were so very glad we did, because not only was the menu full of appetizing options for a health-conscious diner such as myself, but the prices were very reasonable and the food was amazing....

We ate here recently because of its convenience to Old Salem. We are vegetarians, found several good options on the menu and chose the black bean burger. It was delicious--and reasonably priced at $9. The potato salad we chose for a side was also very, very good--made with red-skinned potatoes.

We had a great dinner at Willows Bistro while visiting Winston Salem on a family college trip . The service was friendly without being intrusive . The salads were fresh and nicely prepared . Entrees of fish , pasta, and ribs for our family were all yummy .
