The best place to eat in Healdsburg. The food was great, staff is top notch and we love this place.
So peaceful and service/food excellent!!
The menu is varied and imaginative. Everything was top quality and beautifully prepared. Great wine list too.
Willis never disappoints. Even w the panpandemic, sitting outside w heaters is part of the joy of eating at Willi's. Small plates to share, great wines, delicious desserts. One of our favorite places😍
Love dinning outside at Willie's, it's a once a week must.
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!
Good as always
Excellent creative food, well priced in a safe outside seating area with heat lamps.
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.
Great food, good ambiance + social distancing in place. Clam chowder + crab cakes are the standouts!
It would be nice to have a few more vegetarian choices.
We had Calamari, pork belly taco, crab cake no filler and crab taco and they were all good!
Our server was wonderful. Wish I could remember her name. The food was excellent. Our favorite restaurant in town!
Great food (mostly small plates) and service with appropriate Covid measures in place.
Food and service was excellent as always, especially during these strange times.
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!!!
Great food and service
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"
Willies Seafood is always a home run. Very consistent food and they have some of the best service you will find anywhere
We’ve eaten here twice and both times the food, service and ambience were terrific. We ate outside due to Covid but it was comfortable. Definitely going back when we visit the dry creek wine area
Wonderful, inventive and delicious small plates. Excellent, friendly service. LOVE Willie's Seafood!
Food is amazing !!! Period
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 food was amazing! We will definitely be back again soon.
Two appetizers arrived cold and had to be sent back. The replacements were hot as they should be. Crab cake was mushy. Little gem salad was terrific
Excellent Meal. Thank You!
This was our first time at Willi’s. My husband and I had another excellent experience at a Starks restaurant. Food was great, service was good, and the menu was amazing. Thank you for a positive experience, my husband enjoyed his birthday dinner.
Dining outside is never easy during a pandemic! Well done by Willis and all the crew. Best service and yummy food!
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 certainly enjoyed our meal and felt very safe. The food was quite good and the service was excellent!
Great cuisine, particularly the seafood. Always perfectly prepared and elegantly served. Willi's is one of the top restaurant jewels of Healdsburg.
Excellent food! Every dish was outstanding. Highly recommend the coconut ginger and lime tartare, the almond crusted sole, crispy crab tacos, and last but definitely the best, octopus tacos!
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!!!
