“Great Menu and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

Great menu options, including a nice local Chenin Blanc - an unusual varietal for Sonoma and perfect for seafood.

“Wonderful experience. We'll return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We ate dinner outside, ordering small plates.

We had an artisan cheese/meat plate, a spinach salad, and a couple other dishes, and everything was excellent.

Service was top notch.

We're looking forwarding to visiting Willi's again and trying more of their menu.

“Good food Good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

Went here while we on vacation. The food was very good. The calamari was the best I ever had, def try it! Also the cocktails were very tasty. The service was a little slow and they forgot one of our plates.

“Don't quite get the hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We've been here before for a lunch and recall a great experience. We finally planned ahead and had dinner reservations. We were seated outside under the warm heaters which was perfect. We usually dine with small plates for variety so we were pretty excited. Ordered a nice bottle of wine, the crab cake ($14), Baby Back Riblets ($10), and Spinach salad ($10). Although flavorful, the size of the crab cake was ridiculous and the other plates were okay, but nothing exciting. We left wondering what all the hype was about this place. Yes, its on the pricier side (which has never been an issue if the quality of the food stands out) but we just didn't taste or feel like this place was anything special. The outdoor patio is a plus so perhaps a nice place to have a drink in the afternoon, but with so many choices, not sure we'd go back again, especially after dining at Bravas the next evening which had much more flavor and great atmosphere.

“So good, we ate here twice in three days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

The hotel and several residents recommended Willie's, so we figured it was a good choice. Excellent food and wine offerings. Recommend the Tuna Tartare, Butter Fish, Hangar Steak with Ahi Sauce, and Lobster Roll. If you have room for dessert, we really liked the Lemon offering that is served in the mason jar.
