We had a great early dinner while enjoying the patio. Fondue was as good as we have experienced in Switzerland and the service was excellent. Hunter was our server and he did a great job. We will be back next time we are in Vail.

We enjoyed our meal at Swiss Chalet. We had the fondue special and shared it for 2. And we didn't even finish it all. This made the meal very reasonably priced. Of course we had to try dessert then. The only non-authentic part of the...More

We had a delicious, cozy, beautifully served dinner at this lovely restaurant tonight. The rosti was just as good as Switzerland! Many people were enjoying fondue. It looked wonderful and may have to try that next time. Thank you,Mark for your good service.

We came here for a fondue dessert and were greeted warmly by several very attentive staff. Overall a positive experience. Prices quite high (nearly $50 for 2 desserts) but we found it worthwhile.

We were with friends sitting outside on a beautiful summer night. Swiss-German menu with schnitzel and fondues. Extensive wine list with collectible wines into the $100’s. Great meal.
