Description: 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..

Ambience very nice, with a casual atmosphere, but you could also dress up. Food is creative and fun to share. Excellent wine choices. Great for friends, family and visitors to Sonoma County

This restaurant only serves small plate. If you are with friends and have fun drinking wine, this is the place. The menu is not so big, but there are plenty of variety. I really enjoyed the lamb dish!!

We had a group of 8 people so we ordered about 3 small plates per person so we could sample a lot of items on the menu. The group voted the lamb chops as our favorite, and also enjoyed the duck and the tacos. Several ordered wine flights to sample different types of wine and found the wines to be excellent. For appetizers we shared the cheese plate and the charcuterie. The truffle honey that was served along with the cheeses was outstanding. Would definitely go again if I'm in Santa Rosa.

Tiny old roadhouse right on Old Redwood Highway. Several small dining rooms, kind of patched together. Pricey. Large menu. Mostly (large) small plates. The food can be exceptional or ordinary depending on the items you choose. Good ideas, often well executed. Very satisfying. Check out the wine part, it's extensive.
