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.

While visiting Sonoma last weekend, we stumbled onto this little place close to our hotel...several guests at our hotel mentioned it so we decided to try it out. First, you need to make reservations; it is very popular, and now I understand why...the food and wine are excellent! They offer "tapa" style menu with mouthwatering selections! The two of us...

We came to have a light lunch and were surprised to find a very nice place with great food and service. My husband had shrimp and said that was one of the best ever

The gnocchi with mushrooms and truffles paired with the wine flight suggested by our waiter, Rafael, was amazing! My friend had the 3-cheese and wine pairings. The food was delicious and so flavorful. It made me experience the wine, more than the food, which is exactly why we had decided to visit Santa Rosa.

I'm keeping this short. Don't miss it. Go often. Enjoy. We went twice in five days and could have gone more often but wanted to experience other places.

4 of us had dinner here. We booked in advance as always busy. Ordered Truffle fries, brick chicken, crab tacos, moroccan style lamb chops and ribs followed by selection of cheese's, flour-less Chocolate cake and crepes. That sounds a lot of food but they are small plates and we all shared. We all felt satisfied and not overfill. All delicious... More

Willi's Wine Bar is very good, great ambience, a popular place so make reservations, to avoid long lines. Food was excellent especially the 'crispy pork riblets" with their mac and cheese. they have a great variety of wines, interesting beer choices and menu. It is a happening place to say the least

The Healdsburg location is far better: selection, atmosphere and quality of food. The primary advantage is that it us close to Santa Rosa. Too bad the restaurants in the area are average compared to the Napa Valley and San Francisco.

Whether you end up at the bar or on one of the small patios or at table inside, Willi's seems "intimate." It's a sophisticated, romantic atmosphere with a great selection of wines and a menu that will inspire you. I'm still dreaming of those goat cheese gnocchi in wild mushroom broth. Like little pillows of cheese...

We were there for dinner Friday of Labor Day Weekend with reservations. The restaurant was crowded and noisy, but we asked for outside seating and only had to wait a few minutes. The outside deck was busy, but quiet and the temperature was quite comfortable with outdoor heaters. Food was good with many items to choose from. We had duck... More

Large selection of interesting things to choose from on the menu, Parking is not a problem. Seating is available inside and Out. The Facility is smaller in size and has outdoor seating as well and has a quite intimate feel. We had a variety of appetizers which were very good and more than ample.
