Awesome fondue—-the new rackets fondue is smooth! And the Geschnetzltes are incredible. A little skimpy on the side of spaetzle. Milk chocolate hazelnut fondue fantastic. And the Gluhweinnwas yummy.

Loved the service and the ample cheese fondue. Enjoyed talking with the waiter in German. The atmosphere was more attuned to groups than for a quiet couples meal. A bit on the loud side, but everybody seemed to enjoy it a lot.

Made reservations for my boyfriend’s birthday at 8:00pm and they were able to accommodate us earlier.
Food was amazing. Ambiance was amazing. Overall, everything was amazing! Their Brie for appetizer was delicious, definitely recommend. We ended up eating the Matterhorn for two and it filled us up. Delicious good, worth everything! Would definitely come again. 100/10.

Baked Brie was very good the meat fondue fairly tasteless and a wouldn’t bother if there’s a next time. The raclette or the cheese fondue looked better. I think the other main courses would be a better choice. Wines marked up quite a bit although they did have a great list if you have money to burn. Better choices for the money in vail unless this is the experience you are looking for

The service was excellent, but that was all. The foods was just okay and very overpriced for what you get. We were especially disappointed with the dessert... quite skimpy and average tasting. My wife and I were looking forward to some great fondue, but came away wanting. We both felt The Melting Pot has much better food and value... especially the dessert!

Though we let the restaurant know ahead of time it was a birthday dinner, beyond a cursory “Happy Birthday” upon arrival no mention was made. Going off script (not really just trying to substitute a side) seemed to frustrate the waiter a bit. The food was fantastic, the staff attentive, but not overly friendly (if that makes sense). We will definitely go back next month while in Vail, hopefully we will get better service.

All in all, food is good enough that the service was overlooked.

Took my wife to Vail for her birthday in the fall, took a three hour Jeep tour of the area, stayed at the Austria Haus, ate at the Swiss Chalet. Very pleasant experience and affordable for the occasion. Wife got Wiener schnitzel, I got the Alpen Fondue and we shared. Stuck to water due to the altitude, got dark chocolate fondue for dessert. My wife thoroughly appreciated the Swiss Chalet’s pairing with the rest of our visit. Would definitely recommend to others.

I maybe a little biased since i absolutely love Swiss cuisine. But this is just like it is in Switzerland. We were there during off season with some great deals to treat the locals., THANK YOU!!! The only thing i had a problem with was it took about 15 mins from when we sat to have a waiter come by and ask for drinks but once he came by he was very attentive to us. You will not be disappointed with the food i promise and I have been there during season and the service was great then.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Swiss Chalet. The design and atmosphere are perfect ...just like being in Switzerland. We had the veal rosti and salmon and both were delicious. The fondue looked wonderful and people were enjoying the experience. May have to try that next time.

Great food & service. The only "gripe"...after ordering, they opened the doors to the outside patio and kept them open...it was pretty cold on the lower level where we were sitting. Had we known, we would've asked to sit somewhere else. We ended up boxing up early to leave.
