“Creative food choices, lovely setting, exceptional service”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This was our first visit to Willow Creek Restaurant, for Saturday brunch on a perfect Colorado summer day. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the view of Evergreen Lake across the street while enjoying creative and healthy food choices. Brunch prices are reasonable, considering the quality of the food, and service was outstanding (thanks, Lisa). We sat for over and hour and a half with my elderly parents and never felt rushed. If you plan to sit on the patio, bring a hat, as not all of the tables have umbrellas (though the restaurant does have straw hats on hand for loan). Parking was the only negative; the shopping center lot was completely full, as many people leave their vehicles there while spending hours at the park across the street (in spite of signs restricting the lot parking to shopping center patrons). I had to park several blocks away on the narrow street.

“Exceptional Service”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We hosted 30+ people at Willow Creek for my daughter's wedding. The service staff was spot on honoring our off-the-wall requests with aplomb and always with humor and a smile. The food was terrific--well prepared and with generous portions. As others have said, the setting is terrific overlooking Evergreen Lake and the ever-green foothills of the Rockies.

“Outstanding experience”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

From the appetizer to the desert this was a delicious tour. Don't pass up the scallops. They are outstanding. The rabbit is very good.

“Very good to not so good”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

My husband and I have eaten here many times, both alone and with others, mostly for dinner. While it is a terrific setting overlooking Evergreen Lake, service and food quality are inconsistent when compared to the price. For example tonight, we were served dinner at the bar by a young untrained bartender who knew nothing about the wine selections. We appreciate when the staff recognize us as regulars, but there appears to be a lot of turn-over at this restaurant. But, bring a sweater and sit outside on the deck or have a group dinner in the room above the bar.
