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.

What a great place! Need to bring someone special and sit in the patio. The ahi tuna was great. Oysters are amazing!

This restaurant was casually mentioned as a good place to go for lunch by the pourer at Russian Hill Winery. Since we were planning to go to several more wineries that afternoon, my wife and I didn't want a heavy lunch. After being seated, we were somewhat intimidated by the elaborate menu, that is until we took the first bite... More

This was a fun place for a caual, spur-of-the moment lunch. Food was good, though not memorable. That being said I'd come here again. There were lots of interesting choices I'd still like to try.

I was passing by this place on the way to another place with a friend of mine...we were both in the mood for some food and wine and we stumbled upon the place quite by accident. Sometimes that's the best way to happen upon something. This place is awesome. Willi's has great wine by the glass food! We really enjoyed... More

Saw this on a local PBS show. Went there during one of the wine country trip. The food is well prepared with creativity and imagination. The preparation is done well. the wine list is extensive, with a very reasonable corkage ($15). Highly recommended and definitely will go back

My husband and I ate at Willi's while vacationing in California. Given the good Trip Advisor and Open Table reviews, interesting menu and many excellent restaurants in Sonoma County, we had high expectations. We ordered 4 dishes, with mixed results. The salad was gritty, and the crab tacos tasteless. Fortunately the gnocchi was delicious, and the artichoke and cheese flatbread... More

You will not find a tapas restaurant anywhere that comes close to the quality and service that they provide. It is definitely a "MUST" go to when you are in Santa Rosa.

The food was very well done, with all dishes with great presentation. The service was prompt. I sag all confess that I do not like the concept of tapas. I usually like a meal...but in this case I have to say it was good! I also liked their wine flights, the flights range from $ 14-20, for 3 2oz or... More
