I’ve always enjoyed an excellent experience at Willi’s Wine Bar in Santa Rosa whether it’s meeting friends, a client dinner or just stopping on the way home for the world’s best Mac-n-Cheese at the bar. It’s comfort food gone cool with great ingredients and a welcoming atmosphere. It might be called “small plates,” but they put a lot of good on those small plates and you wind up sharing and getting bites of all sorts of goodness. I had ordered the Moroccan Style Lamb Chop, my friend the Filet Mignon Sliders. The plates arrived our eyes met and within seconds we had a made a trade: a chop for slider. It was a win-win and rest is history. When dining at Willi’s, your server will ask if you have ever eaten there before. This is important, for your life may change, and change for the better. There is a reason Mark & Terri Stark and their cluster of fine restaurants are up for a James Beard Award.

I made the mistake of making reservations at 7pm, on a weekday, so coming from Berkeley I left around 5:30pm so I was stuck in traffic for quite a bit! Luckily, Parking was a breeze; I got the spot right in front of the entryway. I made reservations via open table and they servers were expecting me and my guest. Before sitting down, I took a stroll through the front garden that was still lit with Xmas lights. It was quite pretty at night! Instagram-worthy!
