Willi's Seafood and Raw Bar never disappoints! Terrific food and amazing service! The Almond Crushed Dover Sole is mouth watering delicious and the sourdough bread with garlic parsley butter was so good we had to order TWO! Highly recommend and never turn down an invitation to dine there!

We had clam strips and crab cakes; both items were awesome. The crab cake was 100% crab no fillers making it the best crab cake I have eaten

The food was average, the outdoor ambiance wasn't great especially since they didn't have enough heaters and some just weren't working at all. I know it's COVID and it's hard to maintain good service levels but they sent our server home without telling us and brought our food out in the worst order which ruined the experience all together. And all in all, I just don't think that the meal was worth the price tag.

Willi’s is consistently and reliably excellent; oysters from Canadian east coast were so fresh and briny, calamari and shrimp plates were ample and perfectly prepared.

We give much credit to management for “inviting” incredibly loud and offensive diners to leave. After that, everything was great.

We love Willi's and always stop by when we are in Healdsburg. The tables are scattered outside in cozy nooks and patios, and the food is always innovative and outstanding! An excellent value, and a relaxing, lovely social experience.

After a day of wine tasting...we were hungry and the food at Willi's was outstanding! WE ordered way too much but loved the garlic bread, scallops, tacos, ceviche, queso and more. Jennifer P was our server and she was great. We can't wait to go back!!!

Having lived in Boston for a while, I feel I have a reasonably broad experience to judge lobster rolls. Willi's version was excellent - one of the best I've had on the West Coast. Big chunks of juicy lobster well-complimented by a buttery, toasted roll, and shaved fennel for some crunch and freshness. The crab cake had generous pieces of Dungeness and was well-seasoned. The clam chowder wasn't traditional New England style, but was rich with butter and cream. The dill was a nice touch to give it a little zip.

I thought it would be better. I had crab cakes before which were more "exciting" "tastier" than the ones I had, at Willy"s. I wanted to order the scallops without the bacon, but I was told "it is not possible, as they were already prepared"

We usually like Willi's very much. The menu did not have the seafood items we usually enjoy so we tried other items. The fried oysters and Ipswich clams were not vey good. The octopus was questionable. It took 2 hours to receive 6 appetizers with the French fries coming last, after the rest of the other items were finished.

Really enjoyed this! We sat outside on the covered patio so I felt safe. The food was outstanding. Loved the Little red Corvette as a cocktail. Then we moved on to the tuna tartare with jalapeños, cashews, ginger and coconut milk - very good! That was followed by the BBQ'd oysters and a crispy fried oyster.

For the small plate: Pan roasted shrimp with chilies, lemon and garlic - you cannot go wrong

Desserts: The blackberry and brown butter crips with vanilla ice cream was good. The double vanilla bean créme bruleé with raspberries and almonds was better, BUT the warm Scharffen Berger chocolate cake with roasted peanut ice cream was the best!!!

The salads need to be upgraded with more pizzazz than lettuce and nuts! Bring back the chopped salad with green olives.

Service was very good as was the food.Employees adheared to corona virus very well. The scallops were a bit to hot in flavor and it didn't mention any spicyness on the menu but they were excellent otherwise. Very relaxing and i didn't feel rushed.

We had an Open Table reservation. Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived so we were instructed to wait lut front.
About five minutes later the hostess who just greeted us came out and told us she needed the table we were sitting at for customers. And then she told us we needed to check in at the hostess desk. Needless to say, I was put off.
I went back in and reminded the young girl that we had ALREADY checked in.
After that minor SNAFU we were seated and enjoyed an amazing bottle of bubbly, oysters, crab cakes and the terrific ceviche! So good!!!
Our server, OMAR, was excellent! Very efficient and personable. We felt very pampered!!!
Thank you!!!!
