A San Francisco Chronicle Bay Area Top 100 Restaurant for four years, Willi’s Wine Bar’s 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 two-ounce tastes as well as by the glass or bottle.

    Was fun. Wait staff service was very slow, but food came out quickly. Menu not changed in quite a while but still tasty. Great wine selection. Be careful on patio if people have dogs - people nearby had 2 very large dogs - well behaved but took up a lot of space

    Overall excellent experience & highly recommended! The food was outstanding - from the beet salad, grilled artichoke, and the roasted asparagus to the filet mignon sliders and the best roasted shrimp we’ve had! The macaroni and cheese with peas and ham hocks was literally bomb. The wine selections were nice (I had a Rhône via California flight), my husband had a lemon drop which was great, and we shared a flourless chocolate dessert and coffee that were great. The service by Carlos was a 10 out of 10! We look forward to going back again!

    This second week in a row I dined at Willi's felt rushed and hurried because the waiters were too efficient, ready to take away our empty plates the second we had finished putting the last mouthful into our mouth. My first visit was much more relaxed...

    Willi's offers an opportunity to try wines you may not be ready to buy by the bottle. Wonderful place to experiment. Same with the small plates. Just try something you haven't had before. Terrific place for both wine and food. Nice personal touch....not a cattle call.

    The food was fantastic. We had the tuna tartare, grilled artichoke, foie gras poppers, and the bone marrow. We also had two glasses of wine, a grenache blanc/roussanne blend and a Ridge zinfandel. The staff was slow to take our order, but attentive afterwards. They did bring us a glass of grenache instead of the white blend we ordered, but that was quickly corrected.

    Great experience as usual. We frequent this place quite often when we come to Santa Rosa from Ukiah. We love all of the Starks Group restaurants. The food is diverse and amazing, the only reason I gave the food 4 out of 5 stars this time was because we tried the Mushroom soup shooters this time which comes with 2 small grilled cheese sandos and it was not at all to the standard of everything else we ate. The soup was mine and hot but flavorless and at first bite the grilled cheese was good but the next bite revealed itself to be way too strong of a bitter essence from the cheese they used. I feel the flavor profiles from the soup and the grilled cheese did not pair well and overall was yucky. Alternatively, we had the bone marrow, filet sliders, goat cheese fritters, riblets, tuna tartare, foi gras poppers plus more and everything was exceptional!!! Staff is friendly and never gone too long. My wife loved her lemon drop as well. Definitely recommend this place!!!

    We thoroughly enjoined our meal at Willi's. The food is imaginative and well-prepared. However, be prepared to spend a fair amount. Each small dish is on average $13-$15 and a glass of wine is a minimum of $14. We were there in the late afternoon on a Wednesday, so it wasn't terribly busy. As a result the noise level was good. Overall, I really enjoyed the meal.

Wild array of flavor and creativity. Super hip without pomp. Absolutely incredible wine list and knowledgeable bartenders! Thank you, Carlos and the entire staff!

    Comfy , upscale neighborhood bistro. Service is disquieting. One never gets to have a relationship with the server. We weren’t even sure one was assigned. Six different people came, delivered, took away, without eye contact, warmth, or even a ‘Haooy Easter!’ Food is interesting and generally above average. This is our neighbor hood, but they made us feel like strangers.
