We made a reservation trough open Table on 11/02/19 for 2 at 1:15 and when we showed up, the restaurant was closed till 5:00pm. (lack of supplies we guess because of the fire).
The BBQ bacon wrapped scallops were the best I’ve ever had, perfectly cooked (tender, just past rare). And the Dungeness Crab cake was excellent!
Excellent quality dishes and oysters. Nice wines by the glass. Thought that the order of small plates could've been better handled: Oysters didn't come out first (though the service explained why and apologized), the smoked salmon hummus dish came out last and would've tasted best before the hot (temperature) and spicy dishes were served. Otherwise - excellent service, food and ambiance.
Food was delicious, served at perfect temperature - each dish unique and flavorful. Sat comfortably outside on shaded patio, which did face the main street. Service attentive and friendly. Able to order food as we progressed with no sense of being hurried in a full restaurant.
An amazing restaurant, I just wish their portions were a little bigger based on their price point.
Good food. Not a lot of options for those with soy, dairy or gluten options. The oysters and kale salad were awesome!
Although Willi's has a wonderful location, beautiful interior and fabulous food, we were quite disappointed in the service. Drinks came easily, but the food took a long time to arrive. We had to flag down staff to get our last dish, as well as the check.
Creative well executed shareable plates. The best Kumamoto oysters. Delicious cocktails.
Tables are very close together especially in the patio nevertheless the small plate concept is perfectly executed. The fish is fresh and delicious. The calamari is the best we have had anywhere.
Great! Love the fish tacos!!
Omar, bartender and also food server was so good in recommending the food and wine. We loved mostly the crab cake and lobster roll coped with half bottle of Benovia
Willi’s was recommended by a local winery employee and he did not steer us wrong! I’m still dreaming about the smoked trout green bean salad!! My husband and I got a total of four small plates two veggie/ salad options and two seafood. Decided to get the garlic bread (excellent choice). We were full by the end of it. Had a few cocktails and later decided to share a dessert. Fantastic meal! If I was a local, I would be a regular for sure! Most of the locals mentioned Willi’s as the place to go!
Been going here for years and never a bad meal. Unfortunately the calamari will ruin you for all others as you will undoubtedly use these as the standard. Why can’t they all be that good!?
Kitchen does not seem to be able to handle the number of items on the menu. In some cases the menu tasted better than the actual plate. Ceviche was just fair. Not as cold and fresh as I would have liked. Fillet of sole tasted old...and was dry. Smoked trout salad was tasty as ws were the riblets and calamari. Overall just a fair ecperience
Very friendly staff and lots of pampering. Shared several small plates all were good but not great.
One of my favorite restaurants when I’m in town visiting
Server, Carly, was lovely. Many tasty options on the menu made it difficult to choose. It was a bit noisy and the delivery of the dishes was a bit uneven. We had a very nice meal with family.
It was a beautiful day for an outdoor lunch.
The crab cake was excellent (albeit a bit small for the price).
The mussels were OK at best. The broth was tasteless.
Extraordinary. Fresh, inventive, delicious, original. Very “green” operation.A delight.
We have been coming here for years. The quality of the food and the staff continues to be top notch.
We recently acquired a rescue dog and have been trying to socialize him by going to dog friendly restaurants. The outside patio area at Willi's seafood restaurant is a great place to go with your dog. The food was excellent as always, service great and the atmosphere is lovely. Perfect weather that night for al fresco eating. Our dog enjoyed the experience as well!
My husband and I enjoy coming here as often as we can.
Outstanding fresh seafood and creative small plates are the hallmark of this wine country bistro. Any of the fresh oyster offerings or the bacon wrapped scallops are not to be missed. Full bar. $$$
One minus: Our buser needs a refresher on table clearing. The moment our plates were empty, and while we were still talking, he began noisily removing our service, piling dish upon dish on our table, clattering the silverware, sending one knife to the floor, reaching between us, effectively ending our conversation.
As always a wonderful dining experience. The oysters were delicious. The fish tacos amazing and the kale salad delightful. The staff
Is always so welcoming and helpful.
Great, innovative food. The almond crusted fish was very tasty and cooked to perfection. The bacon wrapped scallops were so good. I could have these several times a week.
Service was very attentive, but not pushy.
A hit in Healdsburg.
Steamed clams outstanding, crab cakes very good. Raw oysters fair. Wine selection good. Would return.
Two nights in a row should tell you how much we love this place. Fabulous halibut and Yuca fries and spinach salad made it a perfect meal. We look elsewhere but this place is #1 on our Healdsburg list. Can’t wait to come back in October.
We asked to be seated outside. Groups of 8 can’t be seated outside. We should have been told that info. Sat inside at a table way too big for our group.
Two dinners in two days says enough.
Good food good prive
Been here 5+ times and always good as ever!
Lovely place we've eaten at a couple of times recently. Staff is very nice and very helpful. Food was wonderful, really happy to eat East Coast clams raw! Noisy but ok.
Treating a friend to her birthday lunch!
Since its beginning, I've loved Willi's. Every aspect about the dining experience, whether I've been there for lunch with out-of-town friends or birthday dinner with family, has always been incredibly tasty and sublime. I've ordered the calamari as a starter and as dessert at the same time more than once; even though it feeds two, I've eaten the spinach salad all by myself and relished every bite, the crab cakes are perfect, the ribs melt in your mouth, and the all-American mac-and-cheese is dripping with cheese. Thank you.
Excellent menu choices. Sometimes the small plates come fast and furious and sometimes too slowly. The Overall, the food is tasty and well prepared.
Usually have a great experience here!
Eaten at Willi's many times and I've never been disappointed.
This is a favorite place of mine, took my girlfriend there for her birthday. Turns out she’s never had a lobster roll, she’s now a fan.
Went for a birthday celebration and picked willi’s because the food was incredible and they could accommodate my casein (dairy) allergy
Amazing! Favorite spot in Healdsburg. The lamb skewers and bacon-wrapped scallops are delicious!
