We had an early evening reservation. Our server was very friendly and nice; but as the evening progressed, it became little difficult to get his attention. It seemed they didn't have enough servers to properly address customers' needs.

We ordered several appetizers; and all of them were good. We loved their marinated olives - we ordered them to go. We were told that they will come in jars; but we were disappointed that we were given those compostable paper containers.

Overall, we were impressed with the chef - the flavoring was just right. 5 stars for food and 3 1/2 stars for service.

This was a top place on our list during a recent trip to wine country. Glad we got this recommendation from others. Tapas-style, casual dining in a good atmosphere.

This casual place just off the highway in Santa Rosa was near or at the top of our list of places our group of four tried while traveling around Napa and Sonoma. The Warm spinach salad and crisply pork riblets were very good and the filet sliders were to die for! We sat on their very pleasant patio and would love to go back someday.

This place is amazing! Nothing on the menu disappointed! The mushu bacon wraps were so tasty, as were the filet mignon sliders and the crab tacos. I also had a lovely Vermentino white wine that the server recommended and it was awesome with our food. The outdoor patio was charming and comfortable and we greatly enjoyed our experience from start to finish.

Small plates are the specialty at Willies Wine Bar. There are so many great palate pleasers it's hard to recommend just one. The crab tacos, short ribs, calamari and sliders are excellent. Going with a group is fun in that you can share and get a taste of everything. Be careful though, those small plates can add up when the final desert is shared and you ask for the check.

Great wine menu as well as your standard all American cocktails.

Willi's is one of our favorites and the food, as usual, was quite good. However, we are used to service that matches the food and this time it seemed as if we were forgotten a few times. We will take this as an aberration, hope it doesn't happen again and still highly recommend Willi's.

The service was amazing. The waiter knew exactly what to suggest according to our taste and even suggested a wine. We were allowed to have our dogs on the patio as log as they were well behaved, which is nice because you don't find that too often at a pricey restaurant. Great experience!
The food is a bit pricey for the quantity (some dishes were only about two or three bites each for two people for $11), but the quality was great!

The menu was varied, interesting and everything we tried we thoroughly enjoyed. I eat out a lot, and I don't think I am easy to impress, but I was impressed. It is noisy, so don't go for a romantic evening, but definitely fun. The only down side was the wine recommended for one of our dishes. Locals will probably do better if they know the wines.

We dine here frequently because we enjoy the food and the wine list. We do wish the menu would change a little from visit to visit. We wish the wait staff was a little more polished. It is difficult to have a relaxing dinner when the waiters are rushing you and pestering you to order. When you tell them you want to wait a few minutes, they are back five minutes later. They also failed to bring one of the items we ordered on this occasion.

wE were referred to this place by our Uber driver. We made a res on Open Table for 645pm; got their a little late but the staff was polite and held the table for us. Tapa's style is great; we were able to try several different foods. Lamb Chops were excellent as well as the crab tacos. They gave a good size serving of the pork ribs; they were ok. The salad with beets and kale was also very good. We had a rhubarb pie for dessert, but we had it the night before at another eatery and it was better there. Not enough rhubarb. Overall, we had a nice dinner.

Tis is truly a great place for lunch. We had scallop dumplings which was our best dish. We had the crimini mushroom salad and grilled asparagus together (great). And, we finished with the filet sliders and truffle fries. Next time, we will probably skip the siders in favor of another dish.

We were a large (13) celebrating group(my birthday). Food was amazing with small plates we all shared. We had a vegetarian and some big meat eaters and everyone was thrilled with their dining experience. Our server was an angel and layered the dining experience beautifully. The wine flights were fun and everyone raved about dinner afterwards. They even put us in touch with John who picked us up at the hotel and provided the return trip back!

For many years I have enjoyed Willi's Seafood in Healdsburg so I decided to try the Wine Bar for lunch with a friend. We were impressed from the moment we walked in the door. The patio seating is multi-tiered so tables offer privacy. The wine list is long and lovely. As with several other Stark operated restaurants, also wonderful, the restaurant serves small plates. Seasonal fresh artichokes were lovely after a turn on the grill. Goat cheese fritters, bread, crab tacos, crispy ribs, and profiteroles were special treats for a leisurely lunch.
