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.

Words cannot describe how wonderful and delicious this place is. Very unassuming from the outside but you will not regret stepping in. Food and service was impeccable. We brought our own wine (spending the day in Sonoma wine country) and the corkage was 15.00. You will need to make reservations.....I did so almost two weeks prior to our dinner and... More

We ate here upon first arriving to Santa Rose. We really enjoyed the varied wine selection and great little dishes to pair each of the wines with. We highly recommend trying the different wine and cheese pairings as they know what they are doing. We ate outside on the patio, which had heat lamps and was a good size. There... More

Highly recommended by many of the locals in the area. Loved the tapas style. After a week of wonderful food and lots of great wines, it was nice to have the small plate option. A lot of great wines by the glass at reasonable prices! The service and menu selections were excellent!

We found this spot on yelp and booked a table for 4 on a Friday night during a weekend visit to wine country. The menu consists of a couple dozen small plates (tapas) all priced in the $8-$15 range. You are going to want 2-3 per person depending on your selections. We had 7 for our group plus we shared... More

I really enjoy coming to Willi's Wine bar. They have some great tapas and an extensive wine list. Personally, I really enjoy the wine flights and have a hard time choosing from the list of all the tapas. The setting is very nice whether you sit inside or enjoy the beautiful patio. If you go, make sure you have a... More

This unassuming little place is scarce on parking but warm inside with FAST service and orgasmic bites of food.

My wife and I have eaten at Willi's 3 times in the last year. We never had reservations, but got seated right away. The service is always excellent. Willi's is clean and the tables each have privacy. The "small plate" method of dining works good there. We usually order a salad to share, french bread comes soon after you sit... More

There are a lot of amazing places to eat in this area, and Willi's is one of them. The tapas style offerings were fresh and tasty; the goat cheese gnocchi with wild mushrooms in particular stood out. The wine list is vast with some great selections, and our waiter was helpful and versed in making good culinary and wine pairing... More
