A word from Chalet Edelweiss
Welcome, friends and neighbors!
At Chalet Edelweiss, we are inspired by life in the Swiss Alps. A place where the air is crisp, time slows down, and dining is a distinctly savored and shared experience.

We cook authentic, Swiss-influenced dishes here and – using only the best meats and fresh produce – offer a diverse menu of world fare. Try our wood-fired pizzas made right before your eyes, Swiss cheese fondue, delicious skillets, healthy salads and much more. True to our European roots we serve Erdinger, the finest Bavarian wheat beer, as well as Bitburger Pils on tap, brewed according to traditional recipes. We also have a full list of domestic and imported wines. Bring the whole family – we are your casual, family-owned, neighborhood restaurant!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The Schnitzel is definitely good. It's some of the best I've had in the US. The pretzel appetizer was fantastic. The restaurant is a gem in a coal mine ... the location, right on Sepulveda in that strip-mall sort of area isn't what I expected with such a romantic name and menu. They do a great job with the decor though. The food is amazingly authentic and the draft beer is a full 17 ounces, if I remember correctly."

  • "A friend was in from out of town staying by LAX so I found this restaurant online near it since I live in the SFV and wasn't familiar with the area. We both enjoy good beer so we gave it a try. The beer was delicious. I had the goulash - super yummy. My husband and friend had the special the Berner plate and both ate every last bite!"

  • "We have not been to this restaurant in over a year as the last meal we had there was "just OK". However, someone must have sat them down and reviewed their meals, and now we LOVED the restaurant again. Not many places for German/Swiss food in the area, and I would highly recommend this restaurant to all. We will go back in the near future."

  • "It is so refreshing to dine at a restaurant that offers something wonderful and out of the ordinary. Swiss or Germant restaurants are few and far between, and Chalet Edelweiss is a real gem! The food is delicious and the ambience warm and welcoming. From the menu offerings to the decor, we felt like we were on vacation back in Switzerland. While everything on the menu sounds delicious, I can't wait to go back and have the goulash again!"

  • "This is a great restaurant. The food is delicious, the staff friendly and the owner makes a point if greeting you and stopping by the table to make sure that everything is good. Start with a big pretzel, served hot with the most delicious mustard. While the rest of my family loves the wonderful German style food, my daughter will only eat the pizza...that she says is amazing."

  • "Cool place that reminded me of the food I had in Switzerland. Raclette is definitely a good choice, and surprisingly so us the pizza."

  • "We've been looking for a long time around LA for a great schnitzel place and finally found it! We had some great traditional pork and venison schnitzel as well as some interesting chicken sausage and potato pizza ('The Edelweiss"). It's definitely become our go to place for dinner when flying out of LAX."

  • "Having been to Switzerland multiple times, we found this place a reasonably facsimile for a neighborhood LA restaurant. It's basically a hard to find storefront that serves a reasonable facsimile of Swiss food."

  • "This place is really a good place to eat The service can be a bit slow as it was on the night we were there. We had ordered coffee and desert. The coffee was promptly served but desert did not arrive until we were finished with the coffee and we had to rmind the server we were waiting"

  • "They seemed to keep wanting to pick up plates that were to be shared we told them we had first time clients who wanted tastes of all the various special items on menu we told them that even when they picked up a plate I put my hand on we cut their tip because of that"

  • "Having travel to Switzerland in many occasions I have tried their cuisine and enjoyed it. Chalet Edelweiss provides the diner with a great variety of dishes… and many specials. So if you want to taste authentic swiss food and don't feel like flying just head for Westchester…. You won't be disappointed.. Please make reservations!"

  • "The food was good. There was only one server on staff so things could have gone a bit quicker. It was our first time and a Wednesday night. So thing might have been slow. Worth going back and exploring the menu further."

  • "I love Swiss food and I was happy to find this place! We had the raclette for an appetizer and the traditional cheese fondue as an entree! We loved it! My husband got the schnitzel, which was good, but not the best. Definitely enjoyed the dinner and the place!"

  • "I'm not a beer drinker, so I was not able to enjoy the Oktoberfest offerings of libation, but three of us dined there--and all three of us were delighted with the food. The service was prompt and courteous. The ambience is blond wood furnishings--not very "Alpine," or Rhinelandish, but "a good time was had by all." I will be back."
