My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Willows. My husband had the grilled shrimp BLT and I had the chicken salad sandwich. Our meals were delicious. The atmosphere was welcoming and our waiter was great.

Willow's has gone down hill. The service and food was horrible. We went in for brunch and wanted simple food like and omelet and pancakes but what we got was something completely different. The omelet was tough with no taste and the pancakes came so late I just took them home (not to mention that my pancakes were hard enough... More

I'm very glad we decided to try Willows Bistro for Sunday brunch. So many wonderful things on the menu. We enjoyed Mimosas, pan seared scallops, grilled romaine salad and chicken salad with light citrus mayo on croissant and finished with creme brulee. Willows Bistro is definitely on the list of favorites in Winston-Salem and we can't wait to try the... More

We were impressed by the food selections. The grilled romaine salad hit the spot on this very hot and humid afternoon. It was very crowded, but our server was delightful and efficient. She even gave us complimentary cups of ice to take with us...wish we lived closer...

Willows is one of the area's best restaurants. Great food, great service, excellent wine list! I particularly like the grilled olive appetizer (ask for extra bread...I never have enough), the hummus and the scallop dishes. Some seasoning can be a bit on the robust side, so check if you are sensitive. The servers do a wonderful job guiding you to... More

We had not been to Willows in quite a while, but returned to try something a little off the "4th Street path". We were pleasantly surprised, and were planning a return visit while we were still there. The menu choices are varied, but not overwhelming by too many choices. Very creative. My husband got the bbq pork rib appetizer to... More

I hope this restaurant stays around, because the food is great. It's located in an old building that looks like an old railroad depot and it has significant charm. I went early for lunch, which turned out to be a good thing. Seating is limited, and by the time the main lunch crowd hit, the line was out the door.... More

Father's day may not be the best day to go for brunch as this is a small restaurant, but the menu is varied and the food is local, fresh and well prepared. The pear salad was a knockout! Who would think of smoked peanuts?

I could not resist going to Willows for dinner on the night before I was meeting a friend there for lunch. Creative menu and very helpful serving staff who even brought a small sampling of something I wasn't sure about ordering. Lunch or Dinner, this old train depot is a charming place with a talented kitchen crew. Oh - the... More
