    Chalet Swiss. We weren't impressed with Oak when we ate there last November.

    Well that seems very unacceptable! Was there no inside seating available?

    Definitely Chalet Suisse. Not an Oak fan for the reasons mentioned above (in addition to a few others.) Yes, there is inside seating at Oak but no ambiance, loud, and cafeteria-like (bright lights, loud.) A few decent tables outside but most are too close to the parking lot to enjoy dinner. We honestly don't understand all the hype over Oak but maybe it depends on where you dine at home for comparison and what you feel is acceptable/personal preference.

    I have never eaten at Oak but did walk/tour the property and was not impressed for the reasons mentioned above. I felt the outdoor seats were in the parking lot. It did not feel like a relaxing place to dine at all IMO.
