Description: The Willow on Wascana has been a part of Regina life since 2004. We pride ourselves on the amazing and quite surprising bounty this great province has to offer. From every grain under the sun to the most flavorful vegetables you have ever tasted. We even have fresh fruit growing in the valley. The willow has worked very hard with countless families and individuals skilled in the art form known as farming. From our major meat supplier, Pine View Farms in Osler supplying us with an array of all farm animals. Our wild boar family Schneider Farm just 15 minutes outside of Regina. Local eggs, local flour and now even a local cheese artist. Our amazing produce from Heliotrope Farm in Craven, you name it chances are they grow it. All these great things we enjoy so much and transform into our own culinary masterpieces, and just picked fresh right out of the backyard. From Farm to Table, let's face it, that's the way it should be. Cheers, Chef Tim Davies

We always enjoy the food and the service. Attention to dietary needs is good.

The service is excellent, knowledgeable serving staff that understand good food and wine. The food is definately eloborate / exotic, perhaps too much so. Sometimes simple is more than sufficient.
The place is a litttle small conversations are shared easily accidentally. Not a place for a business meal, but gorgeous views from the deck.
Would definately go back.

I have been to the Willow on Wascana for lunch on three different occasions. Each time, I enjoyed friendly service and fantastic food. I always order the Land Chowder. It is truly one of the most delicious soups I have ever eaten. Salads are always fresh and creatively plated. The restaurant itself overlooks a lake which is quite lovely in the Summer and Fall, especially when you can watch the kayakers and canoeists go by. This is really a gem in Regina.

As recommended when called - we made a reservation. We went on a Friday night so it was a good thing we had made one. The service was pretty slow right off the bat but it could be the usual for the restaurant. I guess when you're used to being rushed in and out of a restaurant it's unusual to have a laid back atmosphere. That would be the only thing that wasn't great about the restaurant.
The menu is small but the choices are great. We were looking for something out of the ordinary and it was exactly that! Everyone at the table tried something different so that everyone could sample something different.
Started with the cheese sampler to share - it was alright - a good way to sample some different cheeses and sauces. We were also given an amuse bouche that the kitchen had made that day - also good if you like beef (I'm not a huge fan) but everyone else enjoyed it.
The four of us had Wild Duck, Soul Food (chicken and waffles), Warm Trout “Niçoise Salad”, and Moroccan Pig. Everything was absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly! The portions were a good size, no one went away hungry.
Full enough though, we couldn't pass up a chance to try dessert as well.
Two shared the Chocolate Trio and two shared the Saturday Morning Ice Cream Cake. The desserts were alright as well. It was definitely interesting to have fruit loops in a fine dining restaurant.
I would definitely say the highlight of the meal was the main courses. Couldn't afford to eat like that all the time but for a unique meal it was worth it!
