Having been here many times before, this most recent visit was disappointing. Portions were simply tiny - way beyond a small plate. There were fewer choices of hot (temperature) foods, and several were quite hot (spicy) beyond what I can comfortably eat. Willi's has never been inexpensive, but they had wonderful, innovative choices, terrific flavor combinations and reasonable portions for small plates. Their little gem lettuce salad still shines as an example, but we struggled to find others on the menu. I hope they return to their former lustre.

Excellent selection of food and wine. Small plates make it so much easier to share and get tastes of different things. We were there with another couple and had a nice variation of dishes, Octopus, mussels, scallops, crab cakes, a lobster roll, with nice spinach salad, and delicious bread. The desserts were great as well.

Always love dining at Willi’s. I just wish there were a Willi’s closer to my home in Walnut Creek. We had three generously sized appetizers that sufficed for dinner. Each was delicious.

I come to Willi’s every time we come up to Sonoma. And we’ve never been disappointed. This time I came with girlfriends who have never been. We had the fabulous large seafood platter and every piece of seafood was great. The platter is slightly pricey considering the number of oysters and clams but the crabs, lobster and shrimps make up for it. After the platter we had the lover gems salad, bacon-wrapped scallops, grilled octopus and my favourite orzotto. The wine list is still impressively large and varied, and I’d recommend the Vermentino if you’re bored of the usual Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.

A very nice place, but be advised these are small plates and it will take several to “fill up”. The bacon wrapped scallops were very good, but there were only 3 to the order. Mussels were also tasty. Best thing of the night was the sourdough bread with garlic butter. Yum!!!!! Our server and her backup were great.

Excellent small plate selection and everything was superb. It would be helpful if they took the shells off the shrimp, but that's a minor issue and probably is a result of how they want the shrimp to turn out. Highly recommend!

Grilled fish tacos were disappointing with a
mere dollop of unidentifiable fish.

We have really enjoyed this restaurant in the past however this time it fell short of expectations. We ordered the raw shellfish and The blue point oysters had virtually no flavor the and clams were very very salty. The poison cru was very good but the Hamachi Poke was over seasoned and overpowered the fish. The small plates and dessert we had was fair but noting special. I hope this was just an off night.

We ordered six dishes, all seafood. They were too salty, or so spicy that the subtle flavor of the seafood was masked, or simply indifferently prepared. Our overall impression: a seafood restaurant that doesn't know how to prepare seafood. Isn't anyone in the kitchen paying attention?

It would be good if the restaurant offered complimentary bread. Some of the small plates are salty. We tried to order the small plate with bread but they ran out of bread n it was only 7 pm! Considering the restaurant was highly rate n pricey I was not wowed. It was just okay. Service was good though!
