A San Francisco Chronicle Bay Area Top 100 Restaurant for four years, Willi’s Wine Bar’s captures the casual, laid-back nature of Sonoma County Wine Country. Tourists and locals feel equally at home enjoying a quick bite or lingering over a glass of wine. The menu at Willi’s features international small plates, some wildly inventive and others comfortingly familiar. Staff is eager to help create perfect pairings with wines from the extensive wine list, many by local producers. Most wines are available in two-ounce tastes as well as by the glass or bottle.

    This was our first visit since moving to Santa Rosa last March. We visited with friends from Southern California. They were the first to comment on how good the food was. We had to agree. Everything we ordered was excellent, as well as the service. We will definitely be returning.

    A lovely evening and dinner with my lovely lady. A little slow in taking our food order and they forgot one item which showed up after we had finished all of our other plates. Excellent wine recommendation. All in all, a wonderful meal.

    One of my new favorite restaurants!!! All of our food was amazing - our favorites were the bread, lamb chops, & brick chicken. Our server was friendly and lovely and offered great recommendations. Fun ambience and all around an amazing experience. Wish we lived closer to come back here but will recommend to everyone to come here!!

    The food at Willi’s never fails to impress. Our waiter was super attentive and anticipated our every need. The bartender came over to help me select a wine, and his advice was spot on. We would dine here any time we could.

    What started out a little disappointing ended as a wonderful dining experience. Our server was slow to greet us, ask for drinks and even to come back and take our order. We must have waited 20 minutes to be addressed once seated and we started to get a little inpatient. Then Mr Front Manager came by. He's the big guy with the great smile. His attention, suggestions and engagement made our night! We tried the Pinot and the I Love Sonoma wine flights. One of the items on the I Love Sonoma was a little odd so Mr FM exchanged it out, twice!, which landed us on such an enjoyable pinot we decided to get a bottle. The timing on the food wasn't so good - it seemed the waiter didn't know what to submit to the kitchen first and it would have been nice to have the Ahi Tuna Tartar first instead of last. The Goat Cheese Fritters and Glazed Onion Flat Bread wherever tasty, as well as the Warm Spinach Salad and Brick Chicken Thighs (great season with the Tzaziki sauce on the side). That's the order we wish the food arrived but they were all very unique and enjoyable small plates. The Meyer Lemon Pudding Cake is the prefect light dessert for when you think you don't want dessert. Be sure to try it!

    We had a 9pm reservation and when we sat down we were told the kitchen closes at 9pm. We were asked to order right away and 2 of their signature dishes were unavailable. It was very noisy as the kitchen was being cleaned. That said, the food was spectacular and our server was fantastic. We tipped her 40%.

    This experience was on Christmas Eve. It was pretty loud because of the big parties. I decided to try the Christmas drink of the day. It was delicious and pretty. The oysters were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The flatbread dish I had with apples and bacon had that balance of sweet and savory that I love. I could have eaten the whole dish. We also had filet mignon sliders which are very good. To top it off we had the crème brûlée. Unfortunately there was a little too much salt sprinkled on the sugar and we were unable to enjoy it. But everything else was amazing! We can’t wait to come back.

    The filet mignon sliders were great. I liked the pot stickers, which were different than ones found in most Chinese restaurants---in a sauce and pork was chewy, not ground. Truffle fries were good, but should have been crispier. Loved the wine flight

    The service was great and the drinks were good. I'd say I wouldn't go back because the food was somewhat expensive for what we received. A couple of dishes were very good and a couple of them were not good at all.

    Wonderful place to meet friends for lunch. The menu is designed for sharing and they offer options that let you take into account the number of people at your table - very unusual. The server brought the food out in a very logical order which made the experience even better. Nice wine list. Enjoyed every bite.
