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.

We love Willi's Wine Bar in Healdsburg and Stark's Steak House in Santa Rosa so it was no surprise when we had a great meal here. We love small plates and eating family style with our friends. I think we have eaten everything on the menu and they are all excellent. Now to try his other local eateries.

We selected Willi's as a way-point on our trip north through wine country. Luckily we had the foresight to make reservations long before we landed at SFO, as by the time we arrived at this cozy joint there were only few tables left available. A mostly local (I think) crowd makes its way through the confusing multiple menus and cuisines... More

This is the second time we've been to Willi's in the last year and have to say it seems like it was even better this time, although experience #1 was tough to beat. We came with the same group of 6 people again, all shared the same sentiment. The dishes are small and are extremely delicious and rich. We ordered... More

I'd agree with many other reviews here about Willi's. We've only been there a couple of times, but were very impressed with the food and wine selection on both occasions. Love the cozy ambiance, too. This is also a favorite of my daughter and her fiancé, who are both "foodies", and quite the wine experts! I took one star off... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Willies. The tapas were great as was the wine. The place was full but not too crowded.

Quick dinner after a long day if driving. Incredibly flavourful tapas-style plates paired with the I ❤️ Sonoma County wine flight. Extensive food and wine list. Will definitely be back.

Was initially turned off by the gas station like appearance but the food was not gas station by no means. So if atmosphere is not your thing and you want some great gourmet food then hit this place.
