We just celebrated our anniversary in Sonoma and went to lunch at Willi's Seafood. We sat outside on the patio which is in front of the restaurant but a bit tucked away so people are walking right up to your table. I had the calamari and it was without a doubt the best I've ever had! The salads were great as well! I highly recommend WIlli's! You won't be sorry!

We dined at Willi's this past Sat. for lunch before doing some wine tasting around the Plaza in Healdsburg. We were seated outside, the weather was very nice and there were heat lamps, also. We started with the Lobster Roll which was a small sandwich with nice sized pieces of fresh, Maine Lobster, very good. All of the dishes are served in "tapas" style and are meant to be shared and enjoyed by two people. We also ordered the Spinach Salad, the French Fries that were served with a really good Goat Cheese dipping sauce. The Salmon and the Steamed Clams were also dishes that we enjoyed for lunch.

Our service was very friendly and we loved everything we tasted at Willi's Seafood & Raw Bar. The small plates are really pretty nice-sized portions and beautifully presented. We will definiltey return to Willi's again next time we are in the Healdsburg area.

Having arrived the same day, on a short visit, we wanted to maximize our foodie time. Asking locals for recommendations has proven valuable in the past - we were not disappointed this go around. Fun, arty decor begins the experience. The small plates, that we found to be quite generous, were varied and well prepared. Amazing how the kitchen and service coordinated the effort to keep it flowing. Calamari not to be missed, the grilled oysters and spinach salad run a close second. We will definately return !

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant in Healdsburg. We fell in love with the decor as well as the food. We ordered Oysters on the half shell, lobster roll, scallop ceviche, half order or crab and dessert (banana split). The food was so good that we couldn't stop eating. Everything we ordered was well prepared and fresh. This place is hands down one of the best places that I have eaten in the Valley. The food was soooooo good that it overshadowed the terrible meal I had somewhere else later that night.

Our first night in town I had a reservation for dinner at a spot that required a 20 minute drive and was a bit upscale. However, after our day of traveling we were tired and wanted something closer to town with a more casual atmosphere. Thankfully our B&B hostess suggested changing to Willi's! Very good food with a friendly staff. The smaller plates made it fun for sharing and the service was excellent without being stuffy. Ask to be seated in one of the booths. Very private and comfortable. Nice wines by the glass and be sure to order the calamari. One of the best we've had!
