Swiss Chalet is a treasure. We chose it for our daughter's 30th birthday party and everything was perfect. Can't recommend it enough ... a "must" for the complete Vail experience.

Great food. Waiter could have done much better at waiting on us. We had to remind him far too much for anything. Other staff were great.

First time eating fondue—ever. Opted for veggies & bread in the cheese w a house salad, which was an off-season special. Salad was very tasty w Bibb lettuce & a sour cream-based dressing. Take my advise ‘ skip the bread & butter offers initially after ordering. Very heavy meal even w mostly veggies (new potatoes, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, carrot). The cheese is super thick & goopy. But very tasty. The staff was very pleasant, even presenting me w some chocolate dipped strawberries for my BD. Jason (or Justin maybe) provided excellent service. The decor & ambiance were quite alpine & very Swissy.

Overall it was good - Now we focused on the Fondue - which was average at best - you get a better experience at Melting Pot if fondue is what you want. A great example - the Cheese Fondue - all they give you to dip is bread, at the Melting Pot you get bread plus a selection of vegetables. On the main meal fondue - same thing melting pot had more options for sauces and dips. The Desert was excellent - so maybe we just picked the wrong items to eat. If we ever made it back again - we might try some of the original non-fondue dishes.

Loved the authentic feel of an alpine restaurant - the decor was spot on. You absolutely get an overwhelming smell of cheese when you walk in - this could be a great place to eat on the patio. Unfortunately, we were there when it was too cold to eat outside. The Fondu experience was fun - be ready to eat a lot! A unique experience.

Wonderful, stared a bit slow with the staff a acting a bit dazed, off season is slow at all the restaurants. But after that the rest was great. Good Food and drink. Authentic atmosphere, and an enjoyable experience.

In Vail, the Swiss Chalet is a wonderful Tyrolean experience. The mountain ski flavor of the destination is complemented by delicious Swiss cuisine, including fondue. As an interactive dining experience it gets diners engaged through the self-cooking / dipping process. The food and service were both exceptional.

Have been to Swiss Chalet in the past. Brought family here this weekend - fantastic service, food and ambience. Family loved the interaction with their food and ability to cook it to their preferences.

Swiss Chalet is the perfect venue for fondue on a fall evening. It is warm and delicious! We honestly felt as though in Europe from the moment we arrived! We were warmly greeted by authentically attired staff. The staff is the nicest group of folks, all always donning smiles. Our server, Cassondra, was attentive, which we appreciated. The food portions are large - no one walks away hungry! On a warmer night, we would have dined on the gorgeous patio. Parking is easy, as the hotel valet is comped by the restaurant.

Their wine list is truly "notable" to the point of being overwhelming; most selections are very expensive. I'm guessing the average price is $150/bottle. Most wines are $200 - $2,500. We found a few "good value" wines. We love great wines, and we don't believe in overpaying for them.

We enjoyed the three course fondue dinner. It was our anniversary; no mention of our celebration.
