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..

Great food, fabulous wine. Not too expensive. pretty family friendly. easy parking. only minor gripe was automatic gratuity for group of 6 or more which was our family number. Leads to automatic perfunctory service. No real complaints tho - food came happy family

Willi's is an excellent restaurant and it is expensive. Dinner for 5 people with 6 tapas and 5 glasses of wine came to $198.00 (not including the tip). That comes to $40.00 per person. That aside, the tapas were all excellent especially the lamb chops. Every item was perfectly cooked and tasted wonderful. Only 4 stars because the waiter was just so-so. Never asked if we wanted another glass of wine (which I did) and after the last item was brought to the table he forgot or ignored us.

We eat here tonight and really enjoyed ourselves. This would be a great place to go for a date. We were a group of four and really enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and service. There were lots of flavors and variety, and we left full, but not stuffed. Prepare to spend at $25 a person without drinks, and it's very small portions, but they bring them in phases, so you eat slower and enjoy each dish. This is a place that you would go to have great conversation, great food, and really treat yourself. Strongly recommended!! Also, service was exceptional.

We found this place from TripAdvisor and another restaurant reservation site. Since we do not get out to Sonoma Wine Country often, we always try to find new places to eat and, boy did we score here! They have wonderful selections of both food itself and wine pairings. This is a tapas place, so portions are certainly small. For some reason they suggested 4-5 selections for the 2 of us, but we could not stop until we were done with 7. Both because 5 was not enough and we wanted to try more offerings. The biggest hits were duck and Tuna, but everything we had was just wonderful and the wine flights were also great. The stuff was very attentive and knowledgeable. Definitely a great experience!

Some hits, some misses, loved the oysters and the patio. Overall, good dining experience in Sta Rosa.
