Swiss Chalet - Woodland Park Ratings and Reviews
Cozy cabin feel with some of the best food around. We had the crab cakes, surf and turf special, and apple pie for dessert. Each dish was delicious, the service was wonderful, and with a seat right by the fireplace... how can one not be thankful for such an experience. I’d definitely go again and recommend to others.
Great place to eat The atmosphere was very comfortable. Waitstaff very nice however we got there just at five they seemed a little perturbed that we were waiting at the door. Otherwise very good experience little pricey for Woodland Park area however the food was exceptional I would recommend it to a friend, But with my recommendation would come morning about the price.
Comfortable and quiet atmosphere. Delicious entrees (dry-aged ribeye and the filet) and wine pairings (Argentinian Malbec and the ?Crush? Pinot). The blue cheese dressing lacked bite but the ranch was well balanced and flavorful. We will be back for future special occasions.
Yikes! This place has taken a turn for the worse, unfortunately. We used to love Swiss Chalet, but we were there last night and were very disappointed. Service was average, but the food was the real problem. Have you ever cooked frozen fish? You know that odd texture and watery taste... well that's what I got with the $38.50 Chilean Sea Bass. The bass was over salted and the side dish was bland and flavorless. The Lamb T-Bone had so much gristle and fat that my son couldn't finish it. He's had Lamb at a restaurant in the Springs, which was much less money and much better. My wife had the filet mignon which was good, though the potato side dish was not. Desserts were below average. Advice from the server on all accounts was worthless. Nice atmosphere, partly because it was quiet due to being mostly vacant on a Friday evening (never a good sign). We probably won't eat there again.
It took over two hours from seating to being served our dinner. No explanation, apologies, or consideration. The staff acted as if they ignored the issue it would just go away. Several other tables were seated after us and were served, paid, and gone long before we got our food. There are numerous fine eateries in Colorado Springs in the same price range, not worth the extra 40 minute drive for the service. Cordon bleu was a huge disappointment.
Swiss Chalet is exemplary in most ways. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. When the green chili soup turned out to be too spicy for my mother, the chef prepared a delicious mushroom soup for her that was not on the menu. The food is very, very tasty. My only complaint is that my mother, who walks with a walker, must enter the restaurant via the back door, forcing her to pass the kitchen and the bathrooms first. Not exactly the first things you want to encounter when entering a restaurant. This flaw is totally out of character with an otherwise top-flight restaurant full of class.
We've been eating at this restaurant on our annual vacation visit to the rockies for at least ten years, always a great meal. Atmosphere is cozy, with a regular menu and specials, but always on a chalkboard. Cheese fondue is great, beef tournedos and any of the fish entrees are superb.
While on vacation in Colorado, my wife and I had issues finding a good place to eat within the popular tourist areas around Manitou Springs. Most establishments serve bar food, Mexican (had on a previous night), or pizza. Just outside of Manitou Springs is the Swiss Chalet Restaurant in Woodland Park - by far our best culinary experience of our trip through the mountain towns. I had the Chilean Sea Bass while my wife had the Beef Tournados. Both were excellently prepared. This place also has a great wine list and patio seating. While the prices are a little high, they are still quite reasonable when considering the other nearby inferior options. Too bad I don't live close enough to become a regular.
