Diner Reviews
  • "We started the dinner with Sourdough bread w/garlic parsley butter - (yummy). Then shared the spinach salad - (real good), Marinated chicken skewers - (just ok), Salt & Pepper baby back riblets, (Super), and grilled fish tacos (good but small portion). All were tasty but we were a bit surprised that the tacos were actually one taco cut in 1/3's. They were good but for the price, I'd order another order of the riblets next time. I don't think I'd order the chicken skewers next time either. They were good but not great - I'd try something else next time. For dessert we shared something called a banana split. Hard to tell what all was in it but it was scrumptious. Wine and beer selection was good. Overall - had a wonderful dinner."

  • "the food was very good but the FLY's were awful. Landing on your body and the plates. Better to go in cooler weather."

  • "Ate here our first evening in town. Casual setting with good tapas. Nice wine list. Good for those who would like to mix and match. Had oysters a couple ways, king crab legs, riblets (the BEST), kale caesar, spinach salad, mac n' cheese."

  • "Whenever I visit Healdsburg, CA I always dine at Willi's Seafood and Raw Bar. The best food, best service and we have tried most of the fine dining establishments there. By far the very best, delicious seafood."

  • "I LOVE this spot. Always a great evening. Great menu, great staff (when a restaurant retains their service staff like this, you know something is going very right) and I just love the space itself. Great bar (one of the only places I’ll order a cocktail anymore – Thank you Daniel) and even though I didn’t see my favorite waiter (missed you Scotty!) the rest of the service was still nice this visit. In 7 years this is my top revisited restaurant in Healdsburg and will continue to be. Any time friends are in town this is the perfect place to show off the area with. Cheers you guys!"

  • "Hard to say that anything here was a stand-out. The food was good. The choices were good. Our server was not particularly helpful or friendly...which probably impacts the whole experience the most."

  • "My husband and I were craving oysters and a good spicy Bloody Mary this past Sunday. I did a search on Open Table and found Willi's. What a find! We had a great, helpful waitress who made very good menu recommendations. We ordered a dozen oysters, muscles, fries and ceviche. Everything was beautifully presented, fresh and delicious. Their Bloody Mary is out of this world delicious - they make their own mix, and it's amazing. We would highly recommend Willi's and can't wait to go back and try new menu items!"

  • "Dined here midweek. Our server was horrible. She took our order and never checked back in with us until we were completely done begging for a check. Half our food did not come out until 35-40 minutes after some of our food was brought out even though I ordered it all at the same time. You'd think fish tacos wouldn't take 40 minutes compared to a crab cake or calamari. I was going to order a drink but could never find my server. Wanted dessert but I was so annoyed by the time she came to the table that I just waited until I left to find some dessert. Very disappointing"

  • "Always good food, service and atmosphere here. The lobster roll puts all those mayo based rolls to shame! The fries are awesome, salads fresh and delicious. You can't go wrong! Wonderful seafood, good wines, great cocktails."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I have eaten here several times in the past, but only at the bar and mostly seafood. This time, we sat outside and tried most of the meat dishes. In brief, do not order anything other than seafood."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Steamers put my teeth to the test: tough tough tough. Undercooked? Overcooked? They were like a plug of rubber but the broth was good: not too salty. Jordan chard @ $13/glass was robbery. Was it old, or just badly made? Rough edge, skunky taste. Doesn 't anyone try these before vending them ?"

  • "I love Willi's for late summer lunches on the patio. And I again enjoyed myself recently, but should have chosen my dishes differently. For the first, and only, time I wasn't crazy about my choice of lobster roll. Too much butter, not enough lobster. Back to peel-and-eat prawns next time!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Willi's offers fresh seafood in creative and fresh recipes. Many choices. Best seafood in that side of wine country. Terrific service as well! Had Halibut Cevechi, Seafood Platter of Fresh Oysters and Clams and Steamed Scampi and 1/2 Lobster. Finished with Fresh Soft shell Crab Sandwich."

  • "Were in CA visiting our son and wanted to go back to Willi's again as we have enjoyed it before during previous visits to the Russian River Valley area. Had some great seafood, as always. Lobster rolls, clam strips, Hamachi Ceviche and scallop crudo. Sat outside in the courtyard, which is always nice. Great service. Very pleased, again, which is why we keep coming back. Would highly recommend Willi's."

  • "H Town is the place to be in June. The outdoor dining at Willi's is great for checking out street traffic which is colored by locals and wine country tourists. The staff is very professional and friendly and the food is fab."

  • "Fresh oysters were delicious. We also had the Dungeness crab cakes which were pretty much all crab meat. Yum!"

  • "We went to Willi's for lunch on Father's Day. We sat outside in the patio. It was a perfect special occasion place. The patio is a cozy space and adds to the dining experience. We ordered raw oysters and several of the small plates. Everything was fresh and delicious. It was fun to share."

  • "Our family went for an early Fathers Day lunch. Food was very good, some a little heavy for my palette, but we all enjoyed the variety. The drinks from the bar were excellent as well. Thanks"

  • "We had high hopes and the food was good but poor service ruined the evening. Our server was more interested in talking to young ladies. We anticipated leisurely, however his intro was 10 minutes after sitting as he apologized because "he was talking to someone about NYC." We ordered wine & food; the wine came 7 minutes later. The lobster roll was not far behind. But 20 minutes later I track him down wondering about the rest; his response was he was spreading out our dining. The spinach salad comes out 10 minutes later followed by the fries. It would have been nice to have the fries with the roll. At no point did he check in - the only interaction was order, my looking for him and the bill. Other servers seemed professional but not ours."

  • "Willi's is the place to be. Uncharacteristically warm on Monday so we moved in from an outside table to the TV bar area. Noise level was a little too high until the loud group left, no big deal, the familiar faces of the servers is like family and we are forever regulars. It's hard at first to get used to small plates and sharing, but now it seems like the best part; with 4+ people you get a lot of variety and always tasting something different. Wash it down with cold MacMurray's Pinot Gris and life in H Town goes up a notch."

  • "Another lovely patio lunch later in the day. The peel and eat shrimp are an absolute must! Dean's ribs turned out to be tasty, especially with the garlic bread. Chatted with lovely tourists and, a nice surprise, my server had been a student in my first grade class years ago. Love seeing my students become successful and gracious like Ben. You just can't go wrong here!"

  • "Everytime we go up to Sonoma wine country it is time to book a meal at Willi's. Their lobster rolls are grand. I love the scallops wrapped in bacon. We LOVE the bread dripping with that butter - our group had to order extra. Great corkage fee so you can bring your favorite bottles or enjoy from their great wine list. We'll be back for sure."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "From the raw oysters, a delicious salad, then REAL crab cakes and wonderful, even surprisingly tasty, superb BBQ riblets, and spicy prawns. It, truly, was all good!!! We have been before, and can't wait for another occasion to take us to Healdsburg (picking up wine) so we can go again."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "The restaurant was more a bar scene with the food being the after thought. For example, there are three pages of bar drinks with one page of food. The clam strips had a very nice batter; however, of the three of us at the table, we were hard put to find the clams. The spinach salad was good; however, it had an ingredient in it that was not mentioned on the menu. Although no one at our table had food allergies, this could have been a major issue. Although tasty, the lamb skewers were over salted to the point it was hard to ascertain if the meat was beef or lamb. We each had a cocktail which was very good and the wine list had many options. However, we left the restaurant and went back to the hotel and ordered more food. "

  • "We took some friends from Healdsburg to Willi's for dinner. This is the second time we have been there; their first. We ordered a variety of small plates and shared. All were very good; much better than the seafood we had earlier in the week when we were in San Francisco. The broth that the mussels were in was delicious enough that our guest wanted to take the extra broth home in a to-go cup. The bacon-wrapped scallops were perhaps our favorite dish. Service has been excellent each time we have visited. If you want to be sure to have a table outside request that when you make your reservation."
