We never send food back because it's cold but my husband sent back his soup and his entree because they were cold. Both times that he needed our server she wasn't around and he had to speak to someone else. She wasn't attentive during our meal and didn't follow up after he received his reheated meal to make sure that it was okay. The food was good but the service and cold food put a damper on our experience. For the prices that they charge they should make sure that meals are served hot and that their wait staff is more attentive. This was our first time at this restaurant and we won't be back.

Superb dinner. Beth, our waitress, was professional and attentive and a joy. NY Clam Chowder was absolutely fresh. Grilled salmon and veal saltimboca was wonderful. We ordered cannoli cake and rice pudding (the owners wife just made it) but then Beth informed us the owner just took Lobster Tails out of the oven (see photo). So we took home the rice pudding and enjoyed the luxury of great freshly baked pastry! Thrilled with Beth’s recommendation. Great local restaurant and worth a drive.

We've eaten there many times before and have always had an exceptional meal. On this particular night the Seafood Fra Diavlo, which is my favorite, was not up to par due to the clams not being properly cleaned which introduced a significant amount of grit into the rest of the dish. I've not had this issue in the past, so hopefully this was an anomaly.

Responded on 16 September 2019

Thank you for taking the time to review us! Were happy to hear that your meals are exceptional each time you come in but we are saddened to hear about your recent experience with your Fra Diavolo. We clean our seafood the best we can to avoid grit, but due to the recent hurricane, sometimes the rough waters bring on some grit. Unfortunately that is out of our control but we hope that this won't deter you from returning. We hope to have you back for the exceptional meals we always provide to you!

I enjoyed my time at the Mountain View Chalet very much. The room was filled with natural light, clean, tasteful and uncluttered. The manager and waitstaff were friendly and attentive. The menu was varied and contained many options for lunch and dinner. The food was fresh, prepared to order and delicious, with good portions and great attention to detail. The wine list was extensive and the desserts and coffee were scrumptious.
I will definitely return with friends, and would book this restaurant for special events without hesitation.
Well done, Mountain View Chalet managers and staff.

great restaurant in our area. Love the remodel (it needed it). Food was great, so was the service. Some of the apps were a little pricey, but the main entrees were not. We have been there for the buffets and they were delicious too. Many items to choose from.

We've been going to the Mountain View Chalet for well over 20 years. We started going for the all you can eat seafood buffet for $ 15.75 on Thursday nights. Then regularly for dinner with or without friends. Everyone we take or send there has never had a complaint. Jimmy and Demos always stop by your table to see if everything is alright and the wait staff is always right there if you need something.

The food was outstanding, however we did have an issue with our order that was somehow given to another party so when our party of 9 food came out we were short a meal.

Also it seemed as though the service was delayed considerably. I am not sure if that was because of the meal issue above or not.

The management did comp the meal that needed to be substituted and offered free drinks to the party.

May give this restaurant another try just because the meal was excellent and mistakes can(and do) happen

We haven't been here for many years. All of our food selections were extremely tasty. Our waitress was very nice and friendly. Our only complaint was that the ambience was a bit to be desired. I do not enjoy sitting next to toddlers on an evening out w/out my children. We happened to be seated next to a family of 4 with 2 noisy toddlers. Not the restaurant's fault, but definitely affected my enjoyment of the evening.

I had eaten lunch there several years ago and thought of it for Valentine's Day Dinner with my wife.
The experience was great. From the moment that we walked in and were seated to the time that we left,
all of the staff were friendly, courteous and professional. The food was fantastic. Every item was prepared
well and was delicious. The clams on the half shell were very fresh, some of the best I ever had. The soup was just right and the main meals were so good. Drinks and dessert was real good as was the bread served with the meal. Our wait person, Heidi was very very nice and thoughtful. She was the sweetest person. All of the other staff members were pleasant. You could see that everyone worked together in a pleasant environment. The prices are very reasonable also. Highly recommended. It has become a favorite spot for us!
