“Loved It!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

We had lunch outside - two adults and a nine year old. Waitress was charming. Her husband (bar man) made special drink for little one and came out to say hello.
It's worth a visit to see the building alone but also for the food. Prawn pasta and clam pasta excellent. Ham burger had good reviews too.
A very pleasant way to spend lunchtime in a charming town.
Highly recommended.

We have eaten here many times over the years and always enjoyed it.
However our last visit over the 4th of July was disappointing.
Pros : eating on their shady patio behind the restaurant is pleasant, also the fact that one can still get a reasonably priced glass of wine in this town of overpriced wines, is commendable.
Cons : our appetizer of fried calamari came on a bed of marinara sauce ?? and did not look or taste freshly made
The chin. chicken salad which had the chicken on the side, was tasteless
I hope this descent into mediocrity food wise will change for the better again.

“Italian food in a Swiss hotel”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Pasta was very good. I had the Italian sausage and gnocchi. All the pasta dishes were very good. The garden area in back was surprising. The building looks old but it becomes a little garden. The waiter was very professional.

“Superb Pizza and Wine!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The Swiss Hotel Bar and Restaurant is located across the street from the central square in the wine-tasting destination town of Sonoma. It is an iconic establishment worthy of your patronage. I had the Number 4 pizza selection featuring Toscano Salami, artichoke hearts, Kalamata olive slices, and marinara sauce that had a thin crust that was flavored to die for! My wife enjoyed a tasty entree of lamb ribs with deliciously flavored mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables (gluten-free) as requested. Her merlot was to her liking and paired nicely with her entree. The outside dining area in th back part of the restaurant is a nice location to enjoy your meal. It was temperate and is always a favorite spot, although the interior spaces are a/ced.

“Great salads”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We had lunch between winery hopping here with friends. It is inside an old charming hotel building with a great outdoor patio area. I loved Mango & Avocado salad on fresh buttercrunch lettuce with a light ginger vinaigrette. My friend much enjoyed her wedge salad. My husband had the meatball appetizer which was yummy but heavy & big enough to be his meal. Excellent variety on the menu with a great wine list.
