Alpenrose at the Alpenhof Lodge Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyed our 30th anniversary at the Alpenrose.
We had a window table overlooking the front of Teton Village.
Service was outstanding and so were the starters, entrees and deserts.
We had the pumpkin soup, kale salad, bison ribeye, veal cutlet, and apple strudel. Each bite tasted like heaven.
We did not know what to expect being in Jackson Hole for our first time. The restaurant's atmosphere is warm , cozy and romantic. The service was impeccable but the food was to die for. This type of Culinary work You would expect in New York City. You are in Wyoming but transported to Europe with a phenomenal menu with something for everyone:)
A winter ski trip and fondue go hand in hand for our group. Although we've always had some misgivings about the ambiance at the Alpenrose, it is the best option for fondue in Jackson, and the food has always been good. In fact, we've never had bad fondue anywhere. Until our recent visit to the Alpenrose, when something was off. The recipe, the preparation, new Chef? I'm not sure, but our experience was ruined. The "fondue" was a big glob of cheese floating in lukewarm Kirsch. The consistency was all wrong. The manager was quite nice, but attempts to fix the dish failed (came back as a flour heavy thick mixture). Although we were offered other dishes, we had our heart set on fondue. Hopefully the issue can be corrected, or it was just a fluke.
We came to the Alpenrose specifically because they had Fondue Chinoise and Raclette listed on their main menu on every website we found. They do not tell you that these higher-end menu items are not available in the main restaurant, but only available upstairs in the bar/bistro, even though both are served by the same kitchen. I have never encountered this at any restaurant before. I could understand these items only being available in the main restaurant and not the bar, but not the reverse. They were also not at all accommodating to my wife's celiac disorder (ie gluten allergy) and served bread mixed in with other items on the same plate despite a specific request to not do so. The simple venison stew I ordered was plated very sloppily with some stew spilled over the sides of what was a fancier presentation plate (and the taste was very bland and salty on top of this). It all gave me the impression that they really did not want our business. For the price paid for dinner, we received a lower level of service and accommodation than we typically get at a standard chain restaurant. Extremely disappointing experience, and not worth the price!
Made a reservation for fondue on Christmas Eve, however upon getting there found out they only take reservations for the downstairs that doesn't serve fondue (no way to know that from website or booking) but the bar wasn't crowded so they sat us informing us that they were out of oil and chocolate fondue. Bar area probably would be great for apres ski drinks but I'd not the best for romantic dinners. While we were eating (fondue was okay, make it better at home) at least 3 other groups came in with the same mixup as us. They'd booked dinner wanting fondue and were told they had to eat upstairs if they want fondue and that most of the fondue was gone. They also stopped serving at 8 even though a lot of people made reservations at 8:30. It's was quite good dinner entertainment but they are so disorganized they have no idea what's going on upstairs or down. Would not recommend for anything but drinks. Then I found out they later told OpenTable we didn't show up for our reservation. Yep, really know what they're doing.
Food was good, service was not good. It took over an hour for entrees to be served. We were not sure if they forgot about us or if their kitchen could not keep up. We did not stay for dessert. We got there early at 6:10, we did not leave until about 8:10, so we were there before the dinner rush.
I have enjoyed the casual Alpenhof bar many times, and think the food is great. The Alpenrose was lovely as well -- quiet, which is rare these days, and our group loved it as we could actually TALK to each other. However, two of us did think our food much too salty (that could be easily corrected). The others loved their walleye...
It was a memorable dinner. Our daughter loved the fondue and the huckleberry cheesecake. Portions were just right. We just did not like the taste of the " grain of salt" on the side dish. Server was not able to catch up for providing water. Guess, establishment needs extra hand.
We had a delicious dinner with authentic European cuisine. A great chance to expose our kids (ages 10 to 17) to something other than hamburgers and chicken tenders while we were staying at Teton Village. The fondue (both the cheese during dinner and the chocolate fondue for dessert) were the biggest hit, although they also liked the goulash and elk steak. The service was good and timely. The kids all so interested in the experience, no one was on a screen. A win.
Mediocre food, nothing to brag about.
We had the veal schnitzel with paprika sauce (this is hungarian style not swiss style and not at all what I would call a schnizel ) and the duck. Other than the fondue there is nothing swiss about their cuisine.
But the worst part was that my husband found 2 hairs in his meal and the manager response was, it often happens to other restaurants.
We should have lower our expectations from the moment we stepped inside, the restaurant was almost empty.
We had seen the recent negative reviews about the service and almost cancelled our reservation but we decided to go ahead and try it. The service was a little slow to start, but was very good during the meal. The cheese fondue was fabulous service with crusty bread and apples. The other meals were a little less tasty, with the goulash not so good. The servings were a little small and the menu was limited. Wind list nice. Overall, not great but not bad. I would probably eat in the bistro next time which is a little more relaxed and has more fondue options than the restaurant.
Visited for Christmas Dinner. There was an issue with the chef being out and injured. Because of this the service was incredibly slow. It took over 90 minutes to get our food, and after dinner and dessert, we were there for 2 1/2 hours. The hostess was quick to offer us a second appetizer to hold us over until the meal did arrive. The food was great, but the portions were disappointingly small. The bar manager did have quite a few creative drinks and the ones we tried were good. I'm sure they're not usually as slow as they were when I visited, so don't let that fact alone scare you away.
We have enjoyed fondue at the Alpenrose for a number of years. Our dinner last night was far from enjoyable but certainly memorable. Fondue was no longer on the menu but was available in the upstairs bar. Cheese fondue served with bread and apples but the restaurant was out of apples. They were out of our selected wine. We had to laugh to get through the evening. Our poor server had been at work all day and did her best but unfortunately the bar and back of the house did little to help her. Thank you Ana for smiling and being helpful.
Our Christmas eve tradition. Always a great meal and wonderful service. Wanda was our server this year and she was fantastic. The room was a bit noisy with a family that did not seem to care that it was a nice restaurant. The hostess closed the partition and made the room we were in much quieter. Overall a great dinner.
Very disappointed! We made an Open Table reservation & drove out to the restaurant in great anticipation of sampling their food, most especially the raclette & fondues. We arrived, entered the building very excited with the decor & anticipating our meal, as this was a restaurant our daughter in law had been wanting to try on other vacations in Jackson & never had the chance.
We were met at the desk by a nice woman who confirmed our reservation & then casually told us the restaurant had closed the day before! She knew we had a reservation, she confirmed it as we walked in, but never bothered to contact us to say the restaurant had closed. It was getting late & we were far from downtown Jackson, so we took her suggestion to stay in the village & eat at another restaurant close by.
She referred us to a restaurant at another hotel where we had a terrible, tasteless meal & a rude waiter. All in all not a good night.
When I make an Open Table reservation I'm expected to keep it or cancel it as a courtesy to the restaurant. I think that restaurants should extend the same courtesy to those of us that dine with them.
It could be so much better.
The price for a cheese fondue is just crazy. A little cheese, apple slices and stale bread.
The breaded crust on my veal fell right off and tasted like old grease.
My wife's chicken thighs (the meal that is) looked and tested as they had been frozen one or twice.
I mean, it's a nice place but I guess because they know they have a "trapped" tourist crowd
that they can serve whatever they want to at stupid prices.
Maybe we just hit them at an "off" night?
Our last night at Teton Village. Alpenrose served up our last night out before heading home. It was a quiet relaxing evening of good eats and everyone was very friendly.
Getting to the restaurant on the second floor was a little difficult as I'm handicapped and there is no elevator from the main floor to the restaurant. But this restaurant is in a hotel at a very difficult ski resort. You might become crippled at Jackson Hole skiing but not many cripples ski there ... I'm pretty sure of that. So i guess the elevator can be optional.
Food was not good and overpriced. Try Steigler's instead of going here. Food was over cooked and desserts seemed thawed from grocery store. Not happy with this place. Talked to several locals. All had same opinion. New owners are not on site and have no idea of how bad things are.
We have been going to Alpenrose for the last 10 years as a family treat & special dinner to celebrate the holidays. This year was a complete DISASTER! No warning of no fondue, salad missing ingredients & bad dressing, cold spaetzle, and we skipped dessert. Are you purposely trying to shut the place down? That's the track this place is on. Will NOT be back. Sadly.
Disappointing. Ate here two years ago and it was wonderful. This time expected fondue but told they no longer served it, you had to go to the bistro and we weren't the only ones surprised by that as 3 tables who were seared after us asked for the fondue too. Salads not dressed and missing one key ingredient. 2 wait staff for the entire restaurant and as hard as our sever tried to be attentive, it was impossible. We felt sorry for that person as it is clearly managements choice to under staff. Sadly with all the amazing dining choices in Teton village, we won't be back.
We visited the Alpenhof in search of fondue. When we were seated we were told that we would not be able to order fondue downstairs in the restaurant, that it was now only offered upstairs. And then we watched them serve fondue to another (large) table seated nearby (yes downstairs). During our meal we noticed several other parties arrive and then promptly leave when they found out the same. We should have left. The atmosphere was depressing, the food pretty poor, and there was only one waiter and one busboy for the whole restaurant. Kudos to the waiter who did an amazing job trying to keep everyone happy. Sadly the effort fell a bit short. We will not be returning, but we are sad about that. This had great potential. They need to offer the signature dish in both levels of the restaurant, and especially during the holiday week.
My husband and I were looking forward to Christmas dinner here as we had a fantastic meal here years ago. What a bomb. My steak was the only good thing on my plate, asparagus was just that, nothing on it. A potaoe couquette was ice cold, just out of fridge cold and tasteless to boot. My husband got one of their dishes listed as a specialty as was mine. A very small portion of overcooked, tasteless walleye. Your specialties need to be knock your socks off good. I can't imagine going.
We looked up this place on line and came for some schnitzel. The first thing we noticed is the menu did not match what was listed on line. The Jager schnitzel was not offered at all as listed on line, only the weiner schnitzel. Also, both were listed on line as having a sauce and when the weiner schnitzel arrived, it was just a plain breaded patty with lemon. The spaetzel had way too much pepper and was in very small quantity. My husband substituted the spaetzel with mashed potatoes and that's all they were. Just mashed potatoes with no milk, butter, seasoning, or flavor. The red cabbage was very good. Overall, the food was just okay and we would not be going back.
