Will need to return to try their many other options. Unfortunately, two of the three choices we selected were pretty greasy - and it may have been inherent in the food. We tried the Lobster Roll - it sat in a container of grease (melted butter?) that made it a soggy sandwich. Also, the Melted Cheese with Chorizo, Pesto, and Fritos was way too greasy. The Fritos didn't seem to go with the dish - too strong. Maybe flour tortilla chips would have been better. The Dungenous Crab Cake was wonderful - all meat, no filler and very sweet. Service was excellent. When the zinfandel we chose was not available, the waitress suggested one from Bella Vineyards - "it's better". Wow! It was deeeee-lish! We knew we had to visit Bella - which we did - but that's a different review!

we had a romantic dinner here for my 25th birthday. we started with raw ahi which was delicious as well as a fancy lobster roll. then my boyfriend had mac and cheese and i had an english pea salad with smoked trout. so delicious! service was a little aloof, but still nice enough. we'd definitely return for a special occasion. it was busy too, so it helps to make reservations! it was a little noisy and crowded too, which is why i'm only giving this a 4.

We were told that this place was a do not miss restaurant in Healdsburg and boy were we mislead. The food was overrated and not great, the drinks were overpriced and not great and the service was just ok. There are many other places in town that deserve your consideration before this one. Disappointed.

Our B&B recommended Willi's as a great place to grab a bite to eat after a long day of travel. How right they were! We cozied up to the bar and grabbed some creative drinks. The bartender made some recommendations along with fellow customers. We had the most amazing english pea salad ever! It had smoked trout on it that melted in your mouth. Bacon wrapped scallops and the fresh ceviche with taro root chips were also a hit. So many amazing thing to choose from and not enough time in Healdsburg! Don't miss this place, it's worth the trip.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at this very good restaurant. It is off the square one block and has both indoor and outdoor seating. We were given a booth toward the back which was intimate but a little dark. The food selection was very good and slanted toward sea food. The servings,for tapas, are large. Shrimp (5), lamb skewers (4 pieces/each skewer-2), and scallops wrapped in bacon (4). Salads were large. Wine list very good. and cocktails had an excellent pour! Service was friendly and food served on a timely basis. Would highly recommend but do not sit in a booth.
