Chalet is the feeling of ski boots finally coming off. Tying up your boats on the dock after cruising through crystal water. The first sip of that bubbly rosé, spiced cider, or local IPA after a long day in Tahoe or Aspen. The crunch of that signature sandwich you’ve been waiting to eat since your last visit. And the unforgettable night you have planned ahead.

At Chalet, we invite you to dine, drink, and party as you would in your favorite mountain town. Spring, summer, fall, or winter — we’ve got a seat for you.

Kitchen closes at 10 PM.

    Sadly, not what it used to be. Mediocre food. Last year, it was great, amazing courses, cocktails and overall service. We had such warm memories, so we came back for Chicago restaurant week. And it was a subpar experience. They had a pre-fixed 4-course menu with really basic choices (e.g. Mac and cheese). Food was plain, poorly cooked. They even didn’t have the desert which was supposed to be our 4th course. For that “inconvenience”, They’ve substrated just $5 total (!) for 2 people (me and my husband didn’t get the desert). Never going back 👎🏻

    We had a brunch book and they only had 5 dishes available. Avocado toast looked very sad, food overall was not great. Probably not going again - they upgraded the avocado toast and burger after we complained

    Went here for brunch with some friends on a Sunday 12:45 (5 people). We arrived on time and it took our waitress 30 minutes to bring us a water and then another 15 to take our order. It wasn’t super busy. After an hour we finally got our drinks, and second carafe of water. We ended up ordering a second drink as soon as the first came just to make sure we’d get another before the end of our meal. Waiters/buddy boys were literally running up and down the stairs. Not sure if there was a staffing issue, nothing was ever said and nobody apologized for the wait we were having. There were multiple ex wait staff in our group and we all agreed that if someone had just apologized for the wait or kept us updated on the drinks and meal we would have been much happier with the experience. Nothing was comped and a few items even came out incorrect but our party was too afraid to say anything because we had already been waiting so long. Food and drinks were great, but overall experience was ruined due to lack of communication and wait time. Was very excited to try this place but sad to say I don’t think we will be back.

    We came here to surprise a friend for her bday and the service was pretty terrible. First we ordered a champagne tower which took almost 25-30 min to come out and was basically 4 tiny glasses of juice and a few tiers of oranges and blueberries. It was almost impossible to get a hold of staff to order. Once we did order our food- they brought out everything but two peoples orders which did not come for another almost 20 min in which we kept having to ask about it. The food that came first was also cold upon arrival. Being polite we waited for others food as well before eating our own thinking it would be a few min and all sat hungry for 20 min waiting for literally simple eggs and toast to come for others. We ordered a second “champagne tower” which also took 25 + min in which they brought out a literal bowl of fruit and few tiny carafes of juice and said they “didn’t have the tower”. They did not comp us. Still charged us 60$ for just a simple small bowl of oranges and blueberries and 4 super tiny flutes of juice. They didn’t offer to refill any of the juices and we had to hunt people down. The service was pretty poor, food decent but cold, and the gimmick of brunch towers wildly overpriced and underwhelming. The place is cute and has potential but sadly the service and overall experience was underwhelming.

    I went to check out Chalet on a Wednesday night. We were immediately greeted and escorted to our seats by the assistant manager Trabian. The service was immaculate and our bartender Morgan made us some of the best smokey old fashions in town. Both Trabian and Morgan were knowledgeable about the menu and made very good recommendations. Throughout my visit I felt like the team was very intentional about making the experience ultimate and I highly recommend Chalet to anyone looking to have a good time.

    Chalet was a great experience. We tried their new Pork shank and braised chicken dishes and they were both mouth watering. The cocktails and friendly staff were also great! High recommend.

    $6 for watered-down coffee and $14 for a little piece of avocado toast?! Overpriced. Some of their menu items were not even available. The only thing that place has going are basic girls posting about it on TikTok.

    Servers were drunk and kept harrassing/bothering us while we were eating and each time we got up to go to the restroom. Menu online didn't match what was provided in the restaurant and had significantly less options. Overall poor experience and would not go back.

    I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance thinking that the restaurant Chalet has a Vegan burger that I could eat. Not only did the restaurant not have a vegan option, they did not update their menu to reflect the food that is available. The waitress also informed my friend that their were no onion rings and that both the Vegan burger and onion rings are no longer part of Chalet's Menu. The worst part was when the waitress asked my friend if she still wanted a smash burger to eat knowing that I could not eat the Vegan version that I wanted. It was the most uncomfortable experience ,especially when the staff at Chalet does not care who they infuriate nor do they care what they say to their customers. Chalet is an example of bad business

    Terrible, didn’t have full menu and then once we ordered they waited 45 mins to tell us they didn’t have all the ingredients to make our meals. Waiter was drunk helping us only offering us shots for not having our meals. Wouldn’t recommend.

    The dinner and appetizer menu advertised on the website was not available. There were two entrees and three appetizers available. The drinks were average and the cost was extremely high. The website boasts an apres ski ambiance and unfortunately, that was not the case either.

    We went for happy hour and we were not disappointed. The drinks were made perfectly and were definitely worth the value. My only con was I wish they had more options for flatbreads. We were looking forward to it but they only had meat options, and both of us are vegetarian. Otherwise, it was great! The fries were DELICIOUS!

    Had high expectations but was very DIRTY. Hair and crumbs on the table, chair, and unclean glassware and dishes with previous food debris. Resto didn’t care when brought to their attention. Ended up leaving to dine somewhere else. Save your money for a better experience.

    I should preface this by saying I never leave restaurant reviews and have had a lot of poor restaurant experiences, but had to after coming here- I’m not sure if they were having an off day but I wouldn’t recommend based on my recent visit to Chalet. My friends and I stood at the host stand and weren’t acknowledged for a good ten minutes although we saw the restaurant staff standing behind the bar doing what appeared to be nothing. After we were seated, we wanted to order the mimosa tower (which seems to be an item their known for, and part of the reason we came), but apparently the chef who cuts the fruit for the tower wasn’t going to be there for another half hour and they didn’t know if they even had the fruit in the first place. Mind you, our reservation was early (before noon), so why are you running out/not able to serve fruit so early? They were also out of avocados. After we were served our food, several people in my party were missing different components of their meal. The food was also cold. Lastly, when our mimosa tower was promised to be done in a half hour, we didn’t even get it till almost the end of our meal. Also our server just didn’t seem interested in stopping at our table (I very much acknowledge short staffing as an issue, however she was serving other tables around us adequately). Overall, I’m not happy that I spent money here.

    Very limited menu which wasn’t stated on the online menu so weren’t aware of it till seated. Food was cold when it came out, however they did warm things up when asked. Overall, didn’t feel like the value for money spent was worth it.

    Fun but they were clearly understaffed, it took 30+ minutes to get a beer and almost an hour for a burger when we were seated directly next to the bar. All servers were extremely nice and comped a drink for the wait. Very loud but fun atmosphere. Awful gluten free options. Fun for a drink with the girls but was not overly impressed.
