Given the fact that it was outdoor dining in the rain under the awning it was great! The the environment was perfect. Heating was available and the food and service was great as usual.

It was our 33rd anniversary so we decided to go to Willi’s to celebrate. Great food, service and wine. My daughter called ahead of time since she couldn’t fly home for Thanksgiving and had 2 glasses of champagne for us at the end !!! Perfect evening.

Patio dining for lunch is really quaint and wonderful. The ambiance is just as a neighborhood restaurant should be. The service and our server were exceptional. Making a reservation was very helpful in order to be seated in a timely manner.

Have been a fan of the Stark Family Restaurants since they came to Sonoma County.
The new location of this restaurant is much better than I thought it would be.

Food was excellent - cost a little high (lunch with tip was almost $300.)

We plan on returning in the near future.

Excellent food and service. Well priced for top quality fresh local ingredients. The small plates made a flavorful journey for me and my family; warm spinach salad with goat cheese, scallop dumplings, beet salad, filet sliders with mustard bearnaise, duck with polenta, all very tasty. Butterscotch creme brulee to finish - yum. Glad that they reopened and we were happy to have returned after they relocated due to the fire. Location is easy to find even if you are from out of town, just a couple of minutes from HWY 101. COVID distancing and outside seating reduced my "ambiance" rating, so I'd expect 4 stars after we are back to "normal".

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.
