    This place has everything. Wonderfully crafted cocktails, amazing small plate menu and a fantastic wine list including wine flights. Every dish we had was a fresh twist on some old classics and some brand new takes. The scallop dumplings, baked oysters and crab tacos were fabulous. The filet mignon sliders were absolutely decadent. We can't wait to get back here.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Rosa. The food is amazing and we love the concept of sharing small plates. We went with another couple and tried five dishes and shared a dessert and it was fabulous.The tenderloin sliders and lamb chops are favorites!

    We were a little put off by the presence of a medium sized dog quiet and well behaved, but blocking the aisle. A different dog on a previous visit barked loudly anytime anyone entered the dining area. This dog was silent, though had an accident on the way out of the dining patio that needed to be attended to.

    Immediate seating where we asked. Delicious small plates, the fries are the crispiest anywhere, the oysters from Tomales Bay perfect, good neighborhood vibes. And I tried a new cocktail: Roots, made with pear vodka. Had a Happy Birthday.

    All the plating and presentation of dishes was generally well done, but every single dish was drowned in sauce. The carrots, which we had before, were overcooked. Very nice wine list.

    I had dinner at Willi’s tonight and the food was great. My favorite dish was the duck with cheesy polenta, it is not to be missed! My main complaint was the noise. There are no soft surfaces in the restaurant so it was incredibly loud, my partner and I couldn’t even carry on a conversation. They need to add tablecloths or carpeting or something soft to muffle some of the sound.

    So fortunate to have Willi’s here in Santa Rosa. Love this town but there is a serious lack of ambience among our bar/restaurants. Willi’s has ambience, excellent food, and the servers are knowledgeable and well-trained. Highly recommend!

The service was outstanding and we enjoyed a semi-intimate setting allowing us to chat and enjoy the outstanding atmosphere. Thank you so much for being part of our memorable afternoon.

    You must get the Moroccan carrots and the crab tacos. Cocktails are fantastic and not that expensive. The orders come out fast but you might find yourself eating your small plate choice before your dining companion. Maybe ask which things are coming out together if that matters to you. Or get someone who wants to share. They do quite a bit of adjusting the described dishes to accommodate Meatless, dairyfree, etc. only one thing they could not manage was the grilled cheese sandwich that comes with the squash soup - you can’t make a grilled cheese without cheese.

    all the stark's properties know how to make dinner. 4 stars because, while the food was good, it wasn't original. Quite probably that's what makes Willi's so popular - they're utterly dependable. While I like that, I'm sorry to say I think they've really curtailed the menu. Still, cocktails were delicious and the food was solid. No surprises - good or bad.

    The food at Willi's never disappoints. The dishes are meant to be shared and there is enough for 2 or 3 on each choice. This night, we sat on the outside covered patio where It was much quieter, but a little cooler. There are heaters but since there were just two of us we were right next to the shades. But it really didn't matter as the food was great and it was a nice evening out. Calamari, pot stickers, salad, sliders and delicious wine. What more can you ask for?

    My wife and I were looking for a nice restaurant for a New Year's Eve dinner and discovered Willi's Wine Bar. What a great restaurant tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. The friendly and helpful hostess mentioned that there was Happy Hour seating outside and we love a good happy hour:). She helped set up a warm heat lamp next to us. We sampled almost every happy hour dish: Smash Burger, Tracey's Almonds, Marinated Olives, Boneless Chicken with Lemon and Goat Cheese Fritters. My wife is vegetarian and was able to get the Caramelized Brussel Sprouts without chorizo. The service was great. We will definitely be back:)
