Es uno de los mejores lugares para ir a comer en Vail. El único problema como en la mayoría de los lugares de fondue, es el olor tan fuerte que luego queda impregnado hasta en el pelo

It is like Heaven! The draft Weiss bier was divine, crisp, and cool. I ordered the Cordon blue with vegetables spätzle, and mushroom gravy. What a joy to eat such hardy delicious food that will take you back to experiences in Bavaria eating these dishes, however the textures, flavor combinations, and cook made this the best dish since had in Vail! The staff is very friendly and makes the experience a pleasure, from the hostess, to the table waiters, to the bar staff. As I sat at my window table while the sun poured in to warm the interior woods PJ (my favorite waiter now) brought me apfelstrudel a la mode and I transported back to my apfelstrudel making lesson at the Schonnbrunn Palace. I will always suggest the Swiss Chalet as a place go to eat in Vail!

We had the best time EVER! Our server was great. Food was excellent. Fondue was filling and delicious. I recommend any of the cheese fondues with sides of protein. We had beef. The creme brulee and apple strudel are a wonderful ending to a great meal. We will be back.

The Raclette dishes are the best in Vail! Their service was impeccable. The ambiance is very cute for a Swiss Chalet.

Our server Antonio was amazing, but the price of the little amount we received was absurd. Im not sure why this was rates so highly. It’s fine for a casual time with a friend, but make sure to order extra meat from the menu.

The place was really loud, to the point you couldn't here yourself think. Plus this place can't cater to those of us with food allergies as most serve egg bread or egg breading on their entrees. Won't be back.

We are huge fondue fans and this place does not disappoint. Cheese fondue followed by Fondue Chinoise followed but chocolate fondue! It was all delicious. A perfect night out during a ski holiday. Very expensive but so is everything in Vail. Service was top notch too. Our waitress, Carla was a delightful Swiss. Could it get any better?!! Portions are generous so order less than you think you’ll want.

I love this restaurant! We eat there at least once every time we visit Vail, sometimes more! It's delicious. The food is heavy though; you can expect leaving there feeling something between "stuffed" and "OMG I'm uncomfortably full" (but it's totally worth it :)

The waitress had a flu and it was so embarrased for me to have to tell the manager. They have to control that kind of things with the people who work there.
On the other hand, food was very good as always and everyone was very nice.

It’s a nice restaurant, feels like you were back to Europe. But a few things to point out:

1) they could dimm the lights for dinner to create a bit more ambience
2) We were sat in the back, and our waitress kept on forgetting about us because they’ve devided the sections in an odd way and she was mainly servicing the front of the restaurant.
3) most people go here for fondue or raclette, it gets hot in the restaurant and they don’t seem to have an AC. Would be helpful if they could at least open some windows to let some fresh air in.

La comida deliciosa como siempre... el servicio de regular a malo, el hombre muy amable pero olvidaba lo que se le había pedido, no traía las bebidas, el tiempo entre cada plato fue demasiado largo, no pidió un pescado que prácticamente llego con el postre... lastima de tan buena comida... la mesa que nos dieron estaba a medio pasillo, mucho ruido y un tanto incómodo pero la tenían lista un poco antes de la hora solicitada lo cual fue muy bueno para nosotros

Had the cheese and beef Fondue. Both were delicious, but a bit expensive, we thought, for the portion size. We would recommend chocolate dessert fondue- plenty for the 4 of us and a nice selection of berries and shortbreads served. Overall excellent food.

We had a party of seven adults. Fun atmosphere and very energetic. We started out with two cheese fondues as appetizers. Only needed one. We were so full from the fondue we shared several wiener schnitzels and salads. The French onion soup was fabulous along with the hazelnut chocolate fondue for dessert.

No one is empowered to care - even the managers.

This is normally a very good restaurant that we and our kids enjoy. But something - everything - was handled poorly this night. A night at Waffle House would have resulted in far superior service.

We have enjoyed numerous meals at the Sonnenalp restaurants this past year. But we were so disappointed by this experience that we may never go back to the Sonnenalp.
