Description: A 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Bay Area Top 100 Restaurant. Willi’s Wine Bar's classic roadhouse appeal captures the casual, laid-back nature of the 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 32 international small plates, some wildly inventive and others comfortingly familiar. The knowledgeable staff is eager to help create perfect pairings with wines from the extensive wine list. Diners will find a dazzling array of wines by local producers and are likely to find the winemakers themselves at a nearby table. All wines are available in a two-ounce taste as well as by the glass or bottle. Patio dining is covered and heated.

It was mid-November, the day was slightly cool but beautiful and sunny, and it was a great opportunity to have an extravagant lunch while visiting the Sonoma wine country. We reserved at Willi’s Wine Bar, were offered seating inside or outside, and we decided to sit outdoors at a sunny table on the patio. Menus were delivered promptly, and indeed... More

We came here on a recommendation from my daughter who lives in the area. Willi's is a great way to experience the wine country. Good wine selection goes great with the small plate selections. Out of 6 small plates my favorite were local crimini mushroom salad, extra old parmigiano and pork belly pot stickers with five spice & shiitake mushrooms.... More

Willi's has some of the best Tapas I have tried in the states. The ahi tuna tartare is one of the best I've ever had.

I was traveling alone on a Saturday night and happened upon Willi's. I sat at the bar, which was very comfortable for a single female dining alone on a Saturday night. I love the small plates! I had two small plates for dinner, and both were delicious! The first was an Asian style dumpling and the second was two lamb... More

Willi's has been a consistently solid "go to" dinner experience for many years, especially if you like to sample many "tastes" in one sitting!

The flights of wine are fun and they also have fun and delicious appetizers. A little pricey but the service and ambiance make up for it.

I had received a gift card for this place and also have a friend who lives use by...perfect combo! We happened to choose an extremely busy night but the staff seated outside which seemed like a good idea at the time until it started raining. Even though the place pretty much packed the staff made room for us and we... More

Had an excellent meal and wine here. The service was very good and the ambiance was perfect. It has been years since since we were there. (2007)
