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..

Good choice of food, and a great selection of wines.

Was looking for something smaller and this was perfect.

This place is a wine lover's paradise and features wines from all over the world. Great options on flights with small pours available. Food is outstanding... fresh and creative without being too pretentious and doesn't upstage the excellent wines!

I've always loved the small food concept, especially when each plate is excellent, and that's the only way Willi's does it. The wines we've had here have also been consistently good, and the staff recommendations right on target. Dining on the patio is very pleasant, but can be hot during the day in the later summer months. On a recent trip, a group of us arrived for lunch on one of the hottest days on record (without hats or sunscreen), and the staff went out of their way, moving tables and us, to find us a shaded spot outdoors. Visits are made even more pleasant by the staff, who are amazingly knowledgeable and attentive. If you don't feel you can spend the $$$ on dinner here, do yourself a favor and try lunch. Can't say enough about the food, so let me say again that it's *superb* and varied. The vegetarians in our group were as happy as the carnivores. One of my favorite Sonoma County restaurants.

Willi's has small plates of absolutely incredible eats. And a fabulous wine selection. NOTHING is bad here! It's my place of choice any time friends want to go out to eat, especially if they are visiting from out of town. I always get their ahi tuna tartare because it is simply the best ever. They also have seasonal specials that are to die for. Local ingredients and Sonoma County wonders.

Willi's does an excellent job of presenting small plates in a relaxed, casual setting. We sat on the covered deck and it was very pleasant. Favorite was the Moroccan lamb chops. In fact, we're planning to eat there again in four days,
