A must go in Vail
My husband and I go there for cheese fondue in every visit to Vail. We also spent a Valentine's Day there once. Great food.

We went to the Swiss Chalet
We went to the Swiss Chalet for our first night in Vail, we were all tired and did not really want to order our dinner, we ask our waitress to bring us what she thought was good. She brought out the Beef tenderloin/ oil fondue and a bread/cheese fondue and they were both outstanding, a great recommendation. The Sommelier was very knowledgeable and brought us a really good bottle of wine at a modest price. We had a great time and the staff treated us very well.

Awesome food with good service
We had a birthday celebration upon our first visit to Vail. We had the cheese fondue just for the sake of fun and it was pretty good. For main entrees, I had the rack of lamb and my husband had the venison. Both were delicious and would recommend this dish and the restaurant. Ambiance is like something out of old European charm. Having just returned from Vienna for 3 months, it is good to know of the Swiss Chalet to dine and remember our Europe experience.

A Great Experience
Unlike so much at Vail, the Swiss Chalet is truly unique. The fondues were excellent and a great experience. The Ipad wine list is the best thing ever! Allows you to make informed decisions on your wine, since it has tons of info on each one.

After many pleasant experiences at the Swiss Chalet we were disappointed by the food. We both ordered the Weiner Schnitzel and were disappointed to find the veal over powered by breading and deep fried. We will return for the fondue and the Racelette but not for the schnitzel.

Fun place to go
We had a great time at The Swiss Chalet and would recommend the raclette or fondue dishes. The service was very good.

Excellent food & ambiance
Alexa, a new transplant from Florida, took excellent care of us and made some wonderful recommendations on food and wine. She also went the extra mile to recommend some local nightlife, which turned into a most enjoyable evening of live music. The food and service is amazing. Highly recommended for a date night! Ask for Alexa and you won't be disappointed!

A little too loud (all wood
A little too loud (all wood interior and no softscape to absorb sound) & very busy with little kids. Fondue is fun and the family aspect is a little too off putting for us as a fine dining restaurant.

Wonderful food and ambience!
To celebrate our son's 13th birthday, we reserved a table for four. The food and ambience were wonderful. Our son had a very memorable evening.

Authenticity of the Alps
My boyfriend and I went to Swiss Chalet on our weekend to Vail. We arrived at 8pm, and were seated with a reservation. Our drinks were brought to us and the server took out order with upbeat, friendly service. She was from just outside of Berlin in Germany and was amazing. I am from Germany as well and her and I got into conversation, which made it feel like home for me. The food came and was absolutely exceptional. The dinner took us nearly 2.5 hours, so allow plenty of time. We had the Zwiebelsuppe, Käsespäzle, Matterhorn Raclette, and drinks. It was perfect for the two of us. I will be back whenever I am in Vail.

Alpine dining in the U.S.
Went here with my family during a recent ski trip to vail. Kids (10,12,&16) really enjoyed the hands on experience. Food was pretty good, but not much flavor. Our server was not very personable, but was knowledgeable and efficient. The fondue experience was fun. It is overpriced, but so is everything else in vail.
