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..

It's all been said, and it's all true. I can only add that, on a bitterly cold night, their mac and cheese was an over-the-top sensation. I thought my husband made the best mac and cheese in the world; I was wrong.

Recently went with 5 adults and a toddler. We had wonderful service during a busy lunch. We weren't even rushed or made to feel we needed to give up our table. The food was delicious. Sharing small plates gave everyone a taste of everything. What a wonderful taste sensation to try things you wouldn't normally try. Glad we went here on a recommendation, I pass on the recommendation to you.

Sit at the bar. Taste a wonderful selection of wines by the glass - many from small producers. Match the wines with a wonderful collection of appetizers and mains. Wonderful

Tasty and well presented small plates...but all enough for two or tastes for several diners. Great wine list with lots of local representation. Different size pours allows for sampling several selections. Excellent but not overbearing service.

"Beyond excellent" food and out of this world deserts! They server REALLY creative small plates and we loved their pot belly pot stickers, bone marrow (!), pear with cheese on flatbread and their signature truffle fries. However, their pear spring rolls were out of this world, serves with mascarpone cheese and goat milk-based caramel sauce They also have an impressive wine list with some rare Greek and Spanish finds (as well as a full battery of local i.e. Sonoma and Napa wines). Strongly, strongly, strongly, recommended!
