  • "From the moment we entered this quiet, quaint restaurant, my husband and I felt pampered and cared for. The food and service were excellent."

  • "We went to Swiss Chalet for an anniversary dinner. Everything about our experience was wonderful. The waitstaff were friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was comfortable and romantic. And the food was to die for. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "This would have been the perfect place to celebrate our 25th anniversary if it had better service. We had to ask for things & got served in an off hand manner. Won't be back."

  • "I opted for Lobster Tails, substituting a second for the Filet Mignon offered, and vegetable soup in lieu of salad. Soup was tasty and hot, reminding me of fresh home-made soup; the tails were perfectly cooked, attractively presented, and the accompanying pasta tasty but not too filling. My wife had a crisp house salad, then Sea Scallops, perfectly seared, fresh and sweet tasting, served on a linguini with mushrooms base that was delicious. We paired the meal with a bottle of Drouhin Macon Village, the perfect white wine for the meal. Service was attentive and friendly, as usual."

  • "Great food, but the restaurant was crowded and the kitchen couldn't keep up. We got our main courses just short of two hours after being seated."

  • "We are a repeat customer and enjoy the Swiss Chalet for special occasions. The authentic European cuisine is outstanding, especially the pepper steak. Prices are a little high. We love this place but a little too high to eat here too often."

  • "Drove by location several times and really wanted to check it out. I lived in Europe for several years and wanted to see if similar experience and taste.... Took my parents as I was visiting from out of state. Service was EXTREMELY slow and non attentive. Way too long in between courses. Waited almost half hr to get soup! And no, it wasn't busy.... Food was decent, but no big shocker. Very disappointed and wouldn't refer to anyone. Step it up guys..... "

  • "My wife and I each had the Prime Rib special recently. The food was superb! We also ordered dessert (something that I normally do not do.) The apple pie was amazing! Fresh, flaky crust with a hit of butter. The staff is professional and attentive without being overbearing. When we requested that a window blind be closed because the sun was becoming much too bright on our table, they got right on it. Overall it was a very good experience, and we do intend to return."

  • "We went to Swiss Chalet for our anniversary dinner at the recommendation of our innkeeper. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The service was great. Wonderful menu choices. We had the fondue, which was very tasty. It was just the romantic, quiet, quality meal we were hoping for."

  • "We've lived in Colorado Springs for over 20 years, and have noticed the Swiss Chalet many times, but never visited until now. We've been missing out! On the recommendation of a friend, we made a reservation for dinner and it was wonderful! It was beautiful and quaint, a very nice place to spend a quiet evening. Our meal was outstanding, as was the service and atmosphere. The prices were reasonable and we will definitely be back, and recommend the Swiss Chalet to our friends. Thank you for a most memorable dinner!"

  • "This was my first time to the swiss chalet. Outstanding food attentive wait staff fast service. I drive past this restaurant every night going to and coming from work and am disappointed with myself for not enjoying this restaurant sooner. My advice is go there you deserve it."

  • "Swiss Chalet had very good food. The restaurant was a little small and our seat was located in a very busy area. If you make reservation i would recommend stating specifically where you would like to be seated. There were several other seating areas that where more out of the way and more private. You must order the mushroom soup, best soup ever. The Chilean Sea Bass was very tender and nice size portion for the price $35."

  • "This was our first time visiting. It's a very quaint, romantic place to go for a special occasion. The menu is quite varied and has a dish that everyone will enjoy. The hollandaise sauce on my dates halibut was wonderful. My rib eye steak was perfect and of generous proportion. Even the Champagne vinagrette salad dressing was unique. The place filled up to capacity and walk ins were sent packing because there was no room available at the inn. It seems that everyone in town knows how good the food is. Make sure you call for reservations.."

  • "The Swiss Chalet has to be the best restaurant I have visited since I came to Colorado in 2001. The service was outstanding (totally focusing on the customer) and the food was REALLY good! My fiancée even decided to try escargot for the first time. She ate it and I don't think she wants to do that again (Although it has nothing to do with how it was cooked). I know that the escargot was just as good as it was when I tried it in Paris. She LOVED the Sea Bass though! Besides the food being great, it was just nice to see that a place was going above and beyond to make you feel valuable as a customer. We live over an hour away, but I think I want to make this restaurant at least a once a month visit."

  • "Over the past few years we have been looking for the perfect anniversary restaurant and we feel we finally found it at the Swiss Chalet. Everything was perfect and it's here in Woodland Park."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I have to admit that it was very busy being the night before Valentine's Day. Our reservations were at 7:00 and we didn't get out meal until almost 9:00. The two couples next to us were very loud and bragging about how rich they were (not the Swiss Chalet's fault but it was annoying). When we did get our food, it was very good. Love the ambience with the log cabin feel and fireplace."

  • "As always, the service, food and wine were excellent. You can chose a cheaper venue, but, you won't find a better overall experience for the money. The real test comes when you leave after an enjoyable evening...with a satisfied smile on your face."

  • "Arrived 10 minutes early for our 7:30PM reservation. Promptly seated and ordered shortly thereafter. 45 minutes for our appetizers to arrive and mine was skipped, 50 minutes more for our mains to arrive. Not their best effort."

  • "The food and service were good but not great. Even though we had a reservation, the table we were seated at was right at the front door so every time the door opened we got hit with cold air."

  • "I have had the filet mignon at the Swiss Chalet before and was amazed at how delicious it was. Unfortunately, this recent time- the béarnaise sauce we were served was on the side of the filet, cold, and a gray, thick substance. Last time I went, the béarnaise sauce was warm and coated over the steak. The potatoes served on the side tasted as though they were made a week ago and were shriveled with a strange, unpleasant taste. The grilled vegetables on the side were five slices and no seasoning or flavor. Everything else we had was delicious, but the filet was a big disappointment for our anniversary dinner."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "You can be certain that the quality of each dish served has been individually prepared - not fast food - and the relaxed atmosphere in which each course is perfectly paced. Highly recommended!"

  • "We've been to Swiss Chalet several times, both with our 2 kids and with out. We've always had the best customer service and the food is always excellent. This particular time we had a gift certificate for two for dinner. Since there was four of us, we offered to pay for our extra child's meal and dessert, but the owner wasn't having it. We really appreciated the gesture and are sure to return!"

  • "Do you have a favorite restaurant that you could count on for excellent food and service and one day those conditions cease to exist? Not so with the SWISS CHALET. The Swiss Chalet is Woodland Park's premiere gourmet restaurant, wonderful food with favorites that continue on the menu for years, a good wine list, comfortable Alpine décor that makes guests comfortable whether they are dressed elegantly, Western or comfort/casual, warm and welcoming ambiance. When we arrived in Colorado 20 years ago, it was recommended to us and we've been guests ever since. Old world Swiss specialties, steaks and seafood - delicious and beautiful presentation. Our personal favorite: Sea Bass - a favorite among repeat customers. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!"

  • "This is the ONLY restaurant in Woodland Park that qualifies as fine dining. The ambiance is very nice. Both the food and service are consistently excellent. We have eaten there a number of times over the years and have never been disappointed. The menu is interesting with both fresh seafood and high quality meat selections accompanied by a nice wine list."

  • "I saw this restaurant while driving through Woodland Park and thought it would be a nice place for a romantic dinner. I was definitely correct! Solid selection of wines and beers. The food variety was very good, with many specialties from the Alps regions. A reservation was key, as the drive to the location is a bit far to be turned away. The beer-cheese soup was outstanding, as was the Macadamia encrusted Halibut and Veal Vienna style. No room for dessert, so will have to try next time. The service was attentive without being pushy, and gavegood recommendations. Overall, a great place for a nice dinner."
