“Ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

It might seem odd at a seafood restaurant to order meat, but I did. Three of us ordered small plates to share. I chose salt and pepper ribs. Not only were they succulent, I was inspired to find a recipe to make at home. Simply. Yum.

“We loved it here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We had a limited number of evenings during our weekend in Sonoma but after poking around on the Internet and speaking to people familiar with Healdsburg where we were staying, we chose Willi's Seafood & Raw Bar for one of the dinners. I'll preface this by saying that after parking our car, I asked a couple walking in town where Willi's is and they told me, adding that we're "in for a really great meal!" They were right. The raw bar was excellent and the other dishes that are serves are "tapas" style so you can get the exact amount of food you're appetite calls for. Each dish we had was superb and unless you want something more formal, this beautiful and comfortable restaurant shouldn't be overlooked when you in the Healdsburg vicinity.

“Fantastic Oysters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

You don't have to be a fan of oysters to love the Komodo Oysters. I haven't had a oyster in years, but these got me craving them again.
The entire experience of the Tapas and Service was excellent all around. A don't miss eating place when you are in the area

“YUM!”

Fantastic service; you can eat outside on the patio or inside. Nice bar. Friendly and helpful staff. Good place for small plates or big entrees. Delicious food. One of Healdsburg's best restaurants.

“Wonderful small plates served on pleasant outdoor terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Our party of three had a delightful lunch here, sitting on the shady patio sharing several delicious small plates. The local ceviche of the day was halibut: fresh, light, flavorful. Calamari and crab cake were also very good. Three salads were all good, but the surprise sleeper was the pea salad: not something I would have ordered myself, but really wonderful, with goat cheese, nuts, smoked fish.

The building is not very imposing and the interior seemed a bit dark, but the patio is quite large, bright, but with shade, very comfortable. Very fresh seafood and salads at a very reasonable price.
