Took my family last night to this location. Service was beyond slow and the restaurant was near empty. Food was no as hot as it should have been and it took forever to be served. Disappointing. Used to love this location and it's unfortunate it's gone downhill like this.

I wanted to take my UK family to try Swiss Chalet for the first time. What better way than to go to one of the oldest Swiss Chalet locations in Toronto. Other than a few new age starters we tried which were delicious, the food was traditional Swiss Chalet fayre. All the chicken was lovely and tasty. Our server who... More

I wouldn't normally write a review about Swiss Chalet because what can one really say, that hasn't been said before. I happen to like their chicken and they have been consistent for the past 20 years I have been eating there. And my ratio of eat-in to take-out is usually 20% eat-in, so the take out area is important for... More

We visited the restautant mid-July in the middle of the week. We got seated very fast, our waitress was very quick with taking our order and bringing it. Food was exactly what you expect it to be.

Our family has been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. The waiters and waitresses are always friendly and the service is fast, the food is reasonable. Great value all round. We drive out of our way to go to this particular location.

When we arrived we waited for a while for anyone to seat us. Finally a grouchy older lady found us a table and gave us menus. We again waited a long time till the waitress came and took our orders. Then we waited again for drinks. Meal came soon after and it was good. No one showed up again till... More

Don't underestimate this chain restaurant. The chicken is always good and the fries are excellent. The service is friendly and quick. It is particularly a good place to take the family as it is reasonably priced.

Depending on what day you go here, you either get great service with tasty food or complete crap service and just really horrible sloppy food on the plate as if you are eating in an old folks home. The atmosphere here is semi good, maybe if they updated the tiles would brighten the place up a bit. The soup always... More

Whenever I am up in Canada I make sure that I eat at Swiss Chalet at least once or twice when visiting. Being from Canada, I think that my family and I would have this meal twice a week. The food is very good, rotisserie chicken, French fries, a dinner roll and their amazing dipping sauce. My Dad and I... More

Since our doors first opened in 1954, Canadian families have been coming back to Swiss Chalet generation after generation. Our rotisserie ovens only accept fresh (never frozen), grain-fed, Canadian Grade A chickens, because quality is all we know. So what will it be? A Quarter Chicken with fries?
