The menu is extensive with something for every taste. The food was excellent as was the service. They have a large banquet hall so it could get busier on wedding days.

LOVE the Chalet! Amazing food every single time. The Filet Au Poivre is the BEST anywhere. Even rivals NYC and Ruth Chris. The Fra Diavolo will remind you of your grandmothers spicy delicious recipe but with huge shrimp and scallops. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Host was rude, and couldn’t find the reservation that we made through this site. The decor looks like an 80s wedding hall, and the “Mountain View” is a full view of Rt. 78. The food was terrible, cold and overpriced, we will never go back to this place again.

Mountain View Chalet
Responded on May 25, 2021

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Because of the abundance of history that comes with our restaurant, we kept the 'Mountain View Chalet' name along with some of the decor after we first purchased the restaurant (pre route-78) to keep the authenticity of it. We do in no way market ourselves to have a 'mountain view,' but market ourselves for our hospitality and great food we are known for. We do apologize for your experience, and we hope that you'll give us a second chance!

Our server and overall experience was lovely, it was nice to be out with our family! The food was adequate, we order two plates of stuffed mushrooms, one was dry and the other was almost raw and our two orders of duck were dry and the mashed potatoes were not hot and the veggies were almost raw...

So glad to get back to their great menu and service. Yes you are in a tent but being a long time customer (over 25 years) I just had to get back to that great eclectic menu. Somehow they managed to put just about the whole original menu up. Bar doesn’t scrimp on the pour. Love all the Italian style dishes. Clams appy outstanding. We order extra to take some home. Surprising not much noise from Rte 78. Support them, even if take out.
