Willow - Don't go!

Went to the Willow last night as part of a group, so no choice.
We arrive for 7, there are 10 of us.. we are the only ones in the restaurant.
The service was horrific. 3 of us got our meals at 7:45pm, 2 at 8:00pm, 2 at 8:05,
and the remaining 3 at 8:15...this is for basic items like taco salads, enchillladas, and
fajitias. In fact there were 3 taco salads and they all came out at different times. When we
enquired the waitress said there was only one person in the kitchen..... but quite a few waitstaff standing around the bar and someone -Owner? - that was in conversation with
someone the entire time and didn't look up to see what was going on.
I have never seen salsa like that..thin, watery soup looking - it was bad. Not a chunk of tomato or onion anywhere.
I had enchiladas... I have never seen them prepared this way... overcooked tough
steak was rolled in a tortilla and fried, .sour cream and "salsa: on the side....they were dry
and gross. Every enchilada I have had, has been baked with topping on top..not like this. The waitress could not handle our party and while pleasant I don't think understood english. We kept repeating basic things like asking for water or another drink. No one in the group
enjoyed their food and we left to indulge in a ice cream at Cafe Demetre because we
were starving.
