Even though we have lived in the bay area for 35 years and visited Sonoma numerous times, we have never eaten at the Swiss Hotel. Timing is probably to blame, but a winery in Kenwood recommended this restaurant for its pizza. We arrived at about 1:30 PM on a Thursday and found easy parking and the restaurant not very crowded. I was originally put off by how many people were smoking at the tables out in front by the sidewalk. Smoke even waifed inside for many, many feet. Thankfully, we were escorted to the back patio where smoking is prohibited. The over-head trellis is planted with grape vines and gives nice shade to the tables. The entire patio was rustic and you could tell this hotel had been here for 4 generations. Our server was very helpful and efficient. The baby greens salad with garlic ranch dressing was so-o-o fresh and pleasing. Our pizza was truly excellent. The crust was thin, but not like paper, not too much tomato sauce, with tasty salami, tiny Kalamata olives, mushrooms, and we added the grilled eggplant that was on another pizza description. The flavors were perfect and the size was more than enough for 2 people (we only ate a half and took the rest home). House wines were fine and very inexpensive. The lobby was decorated with vintage family photographs and SF history photos. All in all, this was a wonderful lunch experience.
