We ate Christmas dinner 2013 at Alpenglow Stube with our daughter and her husband and his family. To get to the restaurant we took 2 gondolas. They gave us blankets to stay warm for the 30-40 minute ride. It is so beautiful and quiet while in the gondola. Upon arrival at the top of the mountain, we walked a short distance to the Alpenglow. It is cozy in the restaurant. They have a beautiful stone fireplace where the manager took a photo of our family. The service is excellent. We were so thrilled to see that the menu had a page inserted in it welcoming our party by name. We were told that page would be given to us at the door when we departed. That was awesome. Some of us had the 7 course chef's dinner, while others had 4 or 6 courses. It was a lot of food, but you pay a lot for it. The food was very well presented and was cooked perfectly. Among our party of 8, we had venison, fish, steak, scallops, lamb and other delectable items. Sometimes multi-course meals I've eaten at other restaurants have very small portions. This restaurant had portions that would have filled up the hungriest person I know. Some of our group even took some food home.
This made for a wonderful, memorable experience. When we left, they gave me an etched wooden ornament to commemorate our dinner there. Overall, it was an excellent experience.
Do note however that if you have a party of 8 (or larger), they will automatically add in a 20% tip. So, if in doubt about whether the tip is already included, be sure to ask.
Check out the menu online before you go so you are prepared for each person's meal (with tax and tip and drinks) to be well over $100 for the 7 course meal. We all thought it was worth it.
