Squash soup excellent. Scallop dumplings...where were the scallops? Flat bread with lardons...way too sweet and messy. Filet mignon sliders... filet overdone, too much bread, mediocre bearnaise.

Willi's is our favorite Sonoma County restaurant to bring out of town guests! The food and service are always excellent, and the wine is fun to explore. We order the soup and grilled cheese every time!

Can't say enough good things about Willi's. Went with a group of four, ordered several dishes we shared with four individual bites per dish. The short rib pot stickers blew us away from the start. Bruschetta out of this world! Filet sliders amazing! Brussel sprouts were delicious. Had LA, San Francisco and Chicago diners at the table. We were blown away by the flavors!

Terrific place for lunch while we were touring Sonoma. We ordered about 10 different small plates across all categories and they were all excellent. Our reservation was for fairly early- the place was quiet when we arrived and not terribly crowded by the time we left. Service was friendly and attentive.

The food and server were great. The host was rude. We were early and refused to seat us. We sat in our car for 20 minutes and saw an empty table that, 20 minutes later was exactly where we were seated.

Service was quite poor. We had to get the servers attention to order dinner, and reorder drinks. The server never once checked in during our dinner. Seems to be a poorly trained staff.

Server was excellent and staff great. Their coordination flawless. Food exceptional. Table close to the exit had visitors and it got a bit loud, crowded and current COVID guidelines offsides! At least we had great outside seating. We will be back to our fabulous neighborhood restaurant soon.

We were seated outdoors on the front patio. Soon a party of 4 came in, with a large dog. Don't mind dogs. But we did mind that the dog's owner pulled out a dog blanket, and two dog bowls, one filled kibble and one with water. Soon instead of the lovely aroma of seared scallop potstickers, we smelled dog kibble! Really? This woman was feeding her dang dog in the outdoor dining area of the restaurant? And, no server said anything? Good grief. We asked to move tables and did. But shouldn't have had to ask.
Food tasted good. Wine good. Service good. But pretty expensive for what you get. Felt like super pricey happy hour. Won't go back.
