    I cannot recommend Willi's Wine Bar enough. Interesting Tapas and small plates. If the weather is good, you can sit out on the patio. Awesome!

    Syrah also came highly recommended by a friend who lead us to Willi's.

      Love Willi's too...but if you guys enjoy beer, you MUST go to Russian River Brewing Co. - their Belgian-style beers are absolutely outstanding...I've never had their food.

      We took your recommendation about Willies Wine Bar to heart. We had a great experience. The tapas reminded us of Spain, and the wine selections were esoteric and very good. The flights were well paired with the cheese plate. Overall service, food, and value were exceptional. Highly recommended and we will be going back.

        Willi's Wine Bar. SUCH good flavors. 3rd Willi's.
        Like it better than Willi's Raw Bar in Healdsburg.

          I know this is too late for the night of your post, but if you are interested in ethnic, I highly recommend Abyssnia for Ethiopian/Eritrean food. Good veggie options too. Here's a link to one of the reviews...look at the placelink for more info as well. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/496128
