Eggplant sandwich was delicious (and Im Italian!). Partner had kale salad that he liked. Dogs (we have 2) treated so nicely...they got their own bowl!

From the outside it doesn't look like anything special. On the inside it is a quaint place with a really nice outside seating area complete with heat lamps for cold winter days and summer nights. The bread comes nice and warm with a garlicky olive oil/balsamic vinegar dipping sauce. We both ordered the penne and salmon special. It came with... More

After eating at nearby Tasca Tasca Tapas, our foursome went to the Swiss Hotel Bar to get a Giraffini, cold coffee concoction with Powers Whiskey and a cream mtopping in a tall "apertif" type glass(guessing that is how Giraffini got its name). Recommended to us by 3 local wine clubbers. The atmosphere in the bar is Swiss-like with steins and... More

We have eaten at the Swiss Hotel three times. Each time, it was a culinary dining experience. The last time my friend and I shared the polenta and mushroom ragout appetizer. So tasty, with perfectly grilled polenta and delicate mushrooms in a marinara sauce. We also split a pizza (took half of it home). The one we chose this time... More

No better place to sit on the patio with a cocktail and watch the Sonoma Plaza. I do not eat here often, but the drinks are quality!

Another local but busy eatery. Wife had chicken premivara with a marinara sauce. Full of flavor and the chicken was tender. I had the charbroiled burger with cheese and bacon. The cheese and bacon are extra, so be prepared for that. I asked for medium rare only because I like a lot of red in mine. Most places tend to... More

We went to Swiss Hotel Bar and Restaurant for dinner. The place was cheerfully decorated for the Christmas holidays with various wreaths, displays, and a Christmas tree. Many were there celebrating the season. We each enjoyed a glass of Cab Franc. For dinner I had their beet salad and butternut squash ravioli. My husband enjoyed his artichoke soup and stuffed...

18 Century atmosphere in Old Town Sonoma. Delightful decor of days gone by. Excellent quality freshly prepared food and great service. Charming old school bar area and great wine selection. Best bread pudding I have ever had! You won't be disappointed.....
