This restaurant stands out so much , for its ingredients, it's imagination, it's friendly waitstaff, it's amazing cocktails. We just loved it.

We ate here twice on our 5 day trip to Lake Placid. Both our meals were unique and enjoyable. The servers are very helpful and knowledgeable about what is in the dish and how it is prepared. They will spend quite a bit of time helping you choose, as everything is so different. My favourite was the onion soup beef... More

I am a faculty member at the world's premiere culinary college. Believe me, this is real food, real creative cocktails, an amazing beer list, delivered with great service in a casual setting. Locally foraged mushrooms, great house made sausages, fresh herbs. We were impressed and wished we lived here. A must visit.

This was a real find in a town full of chain restaurants and mediocre food. Excellent, homemade cocktails and real dishes made with fresh food. Great wine list and interesting meal choices. The wait time was completely on par with city restaurants--which is preferable to overly fast service that pushes you out the door. Go here. You won't regret it.

After reading the other Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to try Liquids and Solids. We were not disappointed. We sat at the bar since all the tables were full where we fully enjoyed watching the bartenders blend all the fabulous drinks! We ordered the Brussels sprouts and would recommend those as a starter. My husband ordered cod croquette (special) and... More

We chose this gem based on the reviews we had seen on Trip Advisor and our experience exceeded our expectations. This was our last of three dinners in Lake Placid. If we could do it again, we'd have gone there every night so we could have sampled more of the intriguing dishes and drinks. And we were pleasantly surprised by... More

My husband and I ate there last night. The cocktail menu is creative and kind of staggering. I had the Bittersweet. I also ordered a local microbrew - there is an extensive menu of these. We had a cheese plate - tasty. The mains are eclectic, imaginative combinations. And this experimentation works - both my and my husband's meals were... More

Our first visit to Liquids and Solids was so nice that we returned for dinner the next evening to sample more of their eclectic and creative menu. The menu here was the only one we saw in Lake Placid that was truly interesting. There is something here for everyone, provided you are willing to try something a bit out of... More

If You want decent food with unusual combinations but with AWFUL SERVICE then this is the place for you. I understood that we were there on a holiday weekend and had to wait 25 minutes to be seated, but having to wait about one hour to get served and that was for an order of bread, is just un- acceptable....

This is a very unique restaurant. Where else do you walk in and are asked by the hostess to look at the menu first? The menu is very eclectic and there may not be something on it for you, so it is a good idea to reconsider the kids for this one. However everything was great that we had and... More
