A great first dining out experience. Chairs a bit uncomfortable but food and service more than made up for it. The wine flight was a great suggestion.

This is my fifth time to Willys Wine bar and I have always been extremely satisfied with both the food and the service. It may be my favorite of the stark restaurants!

We've been long time Willi's fans. We used to go to the old location before it burned and often took family there whenever they were in town. Since, we have moved to SF and decided to have a weekend getaway.
To start, the service is superb. Everyone is super kind and attentive and we're so lucky for people to provide us with their services during this time. All of the servers were SPOT ON!
The food is also a great value. So many options to choose from! You can't go wrong. Lots of flavors to match and go along with lots of wines.
The shrimp was INCREDIBLE. Big and meaty and flavorful with chilis that brought just the right amount of heat.

The service was slow which seemed strange because there weren't lots of people dining.

The value for the price is questionable in my mind. I'll return, but I won't hurry back.

As good as ever! We hadn’t been to the “ new” Willi’s yet- so were pleasantly surprised that food and service were right up there with what we remembered. Small plates were imminently shareable - think we had 2 appetizer, 1 vegetable, 1 seafood 2 meat and 1 cheese and don’t forget dessert. Each and every dish was fabulous! Love Stark’s restaurants

Went to Willi's Wine Bar to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Turned out to be the high light of the week. We were seated in an area consistent with social distancing. Our waiter was very helpful answering our questions about the small dishes. We shared 7 different small plates; each of which was delicious. I will definitely go back soon.

Unfortunately we came during the 115 degree heat wave and due to Covid had to eat outside. Way too hot to enjoy that much. As usual the food was awesome and service great. I only gave a 3 on ambiance because this is not as unique as the old Willi’s or any of the other Stark restaurants. It’s just an average property in a strip mall.

fun atmosphere, good service and interesting, varied menu. We tried 4 things, 3 of which - filet sliders, shrimp wontons and baked oysters - were very good. The one that I wouldn't recommend was the pork belly pot stickers. just a thin flat oval of dough with nary a pork belly to be seen.

When we arrived for our reservation on a very hot evening, we asked to be seated away from any sun. The hostess refused to seat us where there were sheltered tables and flatly and rudely declared “there’s sun everywhere!” It was our anniversary and we were disappointed to be uncomfortable that evening.

The “wine bar” definitely lives up to its name and offers a lovely selection - the wine flights are especially thoughtful and delicious.
The liver pate was prepared while we waited and had a delicate yet full flavor.
The peach-burrata bruschetta was bright and fresh - perfect for a summer afternoon.
The fried calamari was meh. The orange chili glaze was too sweet and the dish arrived barely warm and a bit soggy from the glaze. Pass on this and choose a cheese plate instead.

While the table was outdoors, the food and service at Willi’s was better than ever! It was literally worth the drive up from San Jose. The only complaint is that we didn’t order another plate of the scallops.

Service was great! Jason is a wonderful server he is very knowledgeable about wine and food. Hospitality was amazing! Manager was super helpful and kind. Atmosphere was fun and inviting. I felt completely safe and had a wonderful Covid experience at this outdoor seating restaurant.
They are doing everything right! I can’t wait to dine there again soon.

My wife didn’t believe pork fries could be delicious until we had them at Willi’s Wine Bar! Tapas is an excellent way to present rich tastes that might be overwhelming as a full plate - and it’s done with creativity and verve here with a focus on local delights - goat cheese balls (why is it that deep frying makes so many things even better?), tangy tómales oysters, rich truffle shooters and a sublime lemon dessert were among our favorites. We get spoiled by good wine in Sonoma County and this evening was no exception. The service was attentive and cheerful - a big leap given the adjustments everyone is making these days. Worth a visit .. or two or three.

We LOVE this place! Miss the days when it was in Larkfield. Visitor tip: Understand that this is a small plates place and the kitchen sends out dishes randomly however they choose. Best enjoyed in a small group and share everything. Yum.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with the outside seating, but it actually wraps around the building and the tables are very far apart, so I felt very comfortable.
