Always fun to go to a bistro/bar and have a menu full of interesting choices that you don't see everywhere. Even the burger choices are full of surprises. Staff is ultra friendly, and so is the chef (who came to our table to apologize for a benign mix up.) Oh, and the 'classic' drinks are excellent.

My wife and I spent a night out with another couple at Willows Bistro and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was superb and the service was fantastic. We will be back again!

Went here on the advice of the Inn I was staying at on a recent overnight trip. So glad I took their advice. Its in an attractive old building and the owners tastefully left the brick exposed in the interior-great for the ambience. It was a pleasant evening and I noted that the outdoor seating was full; people were enjoying... More

This restaurant is in an old train depot with outside seating during pleasant weather. Decent wine choices and fun mixed drinks. Tried Vodka, lemon ginger beer and really enjoyed. We ordered a brie appetizer that cam with crusted bread and apple slices. The BEST appetizer I've ever had. Looked like a warm juicy bubble full of melted brie. Can you... More

First, our server, Christopher, was great! Very attentive and knowledgeable. He made our visit extremely pleasant. The atmosphere is enjoyable. It is a small dining area and you are able to see into the kitchen behind the bar. The food, however, is overpriced for the quality and amount given. It just was a bit disappointing since we are foodies. I... More

The first time we went we hadn't made a reservation and the hostess was pretty short with us and told us we would have to wait 1 hour (there were empty tables and no waiting line so we just left ). We were pretty put off but decided to give it another chance a month later . This time we... More

This used to be one of my favorite places to eat in Winston, but both the quality of the food and the service has declined in the last year. I was there with a couple of friends most recently, and 2 of us got quite sick the next day. Our server also took quite a while to bring us drinks,... More

We live nearby Wiilow's Bistro and have wanted to love and support this restaurant since day one. Our experiences, over time, have ranged from absolute excellence to just awful. We stayed away for quite awhile but recently had a couple of good meals so returned. Tonight was just bad. Service was ridiculously slow. Drinks were served after about 40 or... More

Soggy "molasses" fries, heavily breaded tiny piece of trout over non- memorable salad. For the prices they charge food is not good. Staff are professional, attentive and friendly.
