Instead of going to one of the packed wine yards I highly recommend coming by at Willi's and try one of the $12-$26 wine tastings. The atmosphere is nice and you will not regret it. However we were here in the evening had 5 dishes and everything was excellent. Bone marrow, tuna tartar, backed oyster (amazing) and fresh oyster. If... More

I have been to Willi's Wine Bar MANY times. The food is very good but I was OUTRAGED by the corkage fee when my husband and I brought multiple magnums for a dinner with 2 other couples. We had no idea until the bill came that they charged us double the corkage fee per magnum. If I remember correctly the... More

This is a great option in Santa Rosa, food is stunning, love the small plates to share options, the wine list comprehensive and offering by the glass, carafe ( 1/2 bottle ish ) or bottle, many of the regions best. They offer both indoor and outdoor dining.

Clever little restaurant off Old Redwood Highway offers unusual wines and small plates. Our group sampled ten of the tapas and a couple of the wine flights. I think they should simplify the wine menu and consolidate the 2/5 ounce pours into 4 and be done with it. Some of the tapas are on the pricier side - like the... More

Small and a bit noisy. Indoor and outdoor seating. Wonderful and varied wine list. Many small plates to choose from and large enough to share. Truffle fries were delicious. Tasty fresh ingredients combined creatively. Great cheeses. Beets very sweet. The arugula salad was very fresh. Best lamb chops ever. Decadent desserts. Efficient service.

We enjoyed our meal at this hopping wine bar where the small plates are filled with surprising flavors. We especially loved the Moroccan lamb chops and the lemon pudding cake.

the food is excellent , the menu is imaginative, the wine list is well thought out and the service is (usually) top notch. My most recent experience was a bit disappointing. I think it may have been because I booked a table for 7:00pm. Let me explain. It is the nature of wine to make people mellow out and linger.... More

A San Francisco Chronicle Bay Area Top 100 Restaurant for four years, Willi's Wine Bar's
classic roadhouse appeal captures the casual, laid-back nature of 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 international small plates, some wildly inventive
and others comfortingly familiar. Staff is eager to help create perfect pairings with wines
from the extensive wine list, many by local producers. Most wines are available in twoounce
tastes as well as by the glass or bottle..
