Make time to eat here

We tried many varied dishes here and they were all outstanding. Even the cocktails were made with the freshest of ingredients. We were somewhat surprised at some of the combinations of foods, but everything was incredibly tasty.

The food here was not as good as I had hoped. We had the crispy goat which was flavorful but tough and hence not enjoyable. The goat was served on top of an onion tart which was good but marred by the inclusion of goat cheese which was both unnecessary and a little weird. We also tried the BBQ'd beef... More

This restaurant had very unique, creative and original dishes and a great selection of craft beers. It doesn't look that appealing from outside, but inside was quite nice and we enjoyed it very much.

L&S is our restaurant of choice in Lake Placid. The menu is super unique, ingredients are locally sources and the food is delicious. Not only that, but the staff are super friendly and explain everything with passionate detail. We dine there as often as possible - totally worth the visit while in the ti-lakes!

We came for dinner at the Liquids and Solids after a busy day climbing in the Adirondacks. As soon as we were seated we started looking at the menu. It was hard to read, the language used was too busy and filled with culinary jargon which made it difficult to understand. We ordered brussel sprouts and roasted cauliflower for appetizers.... More

The kitchen takes relatively standard dishes and finds the spice or othe ingredients that make them new. The Crispy Gost Meat and the BBQ Beef Tacos were very good. The potato shells for the tacos were a tasty twist. The chili pepper and lemon curd did not work as well with the Gnocchi dish. Beverage selection was good/fun. Service was... More

The atmosphere and service was excellent but the food was a bit odd. They were trying very hard to be creative - but it didn't quite come together in an appetizing way.

For years I turned a blind eye to this part of Lake Placid. "It's called Liquids and Solids," I thought to myself, "It can't possibly be a restaurant consideration." For some reason I continuously gave this place the cold shoulder. It came from some random feeling that I believed I wouldn't like it. But then I went in and I... More

When you visit Liquids and Solids for the first time, be prepared to be a little confused. The menu and drink list come out in pages on a clipboard, 5 pages worth. Each food menu is listed with just the ingredients, nothing about how it is served. I guess that is up to the chef to decide. Everything is ala... More

No wait, delicious drinks and gr8 farm to table entrees: we enjoyed roasted cauliflower, fried Brussel sprouts, kielbasa and grilled calamari. Service was excellent - ever so glad we went on Friday since they were closed the rest of Memorial Day Weekend.
