Stopped in for afternoon cocktail and to relax. Great place with a lot of history but bartender made us feel like we were an inconvenience to her. So we had one and left.

My wife and I spent a short time in Sonoma primarily visiting the Old Town Area. We had been encouraged to eat at the Swiss Hotel Restaurant by our daughter (who had eaten there previously) and it was outstanding. Hidden inside a building dating to the 19th Century with a plain facade, is a beautiful dining room and equally lovely... More

One of my favorite spots to visit in Sonoma, I always have great food at the Swiss Hotel. I do think the service is a little lacking on busier nights, but the food never disappoints. The calamari is always crispy and not chewy and I cannot stop in without getting an order. We tried the coconut prawns to start as... More

We stopped here for a late lunch and a cold beer and were rewarded with a seat in the sun and a lovely meal which included what I can only describe as very superior meatballs. Strongly recommended.

We stopped in here and was so glad we did. The dining inside and the patio are both good choices. We sat on the deck and the atmosphere and the service were exceptional. Cindy was our server and she was so professional and pleasant. The food was very good.

Very good calamari and salads. The rack of lamb was excellent as. Was the eggplant entree. Pork chop was delicious as well as the pasta dishes. Desserts were good but not memorable. Wine choices are very good. Service was good But they will not do separate checks for our group of eight.

The building is historic and the bar looks equally so, good indicator it's a great local's bar. The service and food were both casual which was fine for a laid back lunch sitting outdoors people watching.

Decided to go to dinner here while wrapping up our day in Sonoma. We were so glad we did. The Beet and Arugula salad which was great. We shared the seafood ravioli, which they modified for us with a garlic and white wine sauce to reduce the dairy for us. They were very accommodating with the change. The dish contained... More

Bar and restaurant feel like early California as the building is from that era. Restaurant serves tasty fresh cuisine. Seafood ravioli were super delicious. Hotel is small and charming with very comfortable beds and rooms. I will be back.

It was really nice to have dinner at a comfortable restaurant in Sonoma following our plane flight, driving from San Francisco Airport, and walking around in Sonoma on a hot day. I had made a reservation for the garden (which looked very pleasant) but due to the heat we switched to an inside table when we arrived and there was... More
