Description: A 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Bay Area Top 100 Restaurant. Willi’s Wine...
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.

Very enjoyable

Small intimate place with really great food. The wine list is very respectable. The service was good and would go there again.

Visited here for drinks while on a business trip on a Tuesday night. Very laid back atmosphere. Wait staff was good. Menu seemed limited, seemed a little expensive-probably typical for the area.

Excellent restaurant; always busy; a favorite with locals for a special or just an every day repeat visit. . Focuses on small plates. Good wine list.

We have eaten at Willi's twice. The menu is a bit different - lots of small plates. What would seem to be appetizers for most. There are a lot of them, and they are great!

What a great place! We had tried some of the other Willi's restaurants and loved them, but not this one before. Willi's Wine Bar is so much fun. Love the small plates, love the menu, love the wine pairings. All staff were very knowledgable on their wines. We were there on New Years Eve, very packed, but the staff were... More

Great beer and good pizza. The Pizza is much more expensive that the beer though. No matter what time I have gone there I have had to wait for a table. Most people come for the beer and not the food. It is a fun place.

We had dinner outside at night-time. The outdoor lighting needs to improved a lot. Seniors are not always able to see as clearly as younger people, and it's unfortunate that management & owners didn't think of this on their own. Hopefully, the patio lighting issue will be resolved ASAP. Other then that, this is a wonderful place to dine. Sahati

We live about 10 minutes drive from Willi's Wine Bar, and go there frequently with friends and family. It never fails to elicit ooo's and ahhh's from those we go with. Perfect, upbeat with small plates of wonderful eating experiences to share with your table mates. The menu changes from time to time so whatever is being served is a... More

The food was good, but my husband's lamb was raw. The main problem was with our waitress. Maybe she was having a bad day. She seemed annoyed that we wanted a few minutes to look at the menu -- we had never been there and wanted to look it over, she never came back to see if we were happy... More
