“Nice idea, but not very good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

This restaurant serves tapas style seafood. The menu looked great. The first dish was long neck clam steamers, which was delicious. The rest of the small plates that we shared left a lot to be desired. Too bad, it's a fun little place with potential, but their food just isn't that good. They did have a nice selection of wine.

“Great eats and vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Fun place with great energy and even better seafood.

We had a half a dozen oysters, steamed clams, chopped salad and a crab cake.

We ordered the sourdough bread too-a bit buttery but very good.

The service was excellent

“Great Menu and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Great menu options, including a nice local Chenin Blanc - an unusual varietal for Sonoma and perfect for seafood.

“Wonderful experience. We'll return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

We ate dinner outside, ordering small plates.

We had an artisan cheese/meat plate, a spinach salad, and a couple other dishes, and everything was excellent.

Service was top notch.

We're looking forwarding to visiting Willi's again and trying more of their menu.

“Good food Good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

Went here while we on vacation. The food was very good. The calamari was the best I ever had, def try it! Also the cocktails were very tasty. The service was a little slow and they forgot one of our plates.
