My husband and I walked in hesitantly in Pan Dolce because of a negative review we read about it. We are glad that we decided to try the restaurant anyway. From the time we stepped in, we felt the warm welcome of everyone. Regina, our wait staff, was very efficient and very pleasant. We had a long trek before going... More

I rolled into Lake Placid and wanted to enjoy having dinner outdoor. Upon seeing Pan Dolce I decided this was my place. My server Nick recommended the prime rib special. It was a large prime rib with a Dijon mustard sauce on top. It was serves with potatoes, veggies and your choice of a salad. I had a Caesar They... More

The food was woderful! Best scallops we have ever eaten. Not only was the food excellent but the timing between the bread, salad, appetizers and main course were timed very well. We enjoyed our food without feeling rushed and we never once felt like we "waited" for the next course. Also, the proportions were done well. When we go back... More

I can not express how pleased I was with the dinner party Keith (General Manager) helped me plan for friends and family who came to Lake Placid to attend my son's wedding. Living in the city, my family is used to eating at great restaurants and I was rather nervous about choosing a long distance venue without trying it. After... More

Our family of 9 had a great dinner last night. The shrimp cavetto was to die for. The vegetarian portobello mushrooms were excellent. Although our service was slow, with one or two meals coming out at a time we would return!

The chef made us some outstanding dinners, and we taught our server to make Monte Kristo coffee's for us after our meal. We had some of the best Prime Rib we've ever tasted, and the salads and wine we chose made for a great experience.

Difficult to review this one..we had reservations for a party of 9. Walked in the door and owner/manager greeted us by name and welcomed us which I thought was very nice. The decor was upscale/trendy and I had a great first impression. The waitress came over and was very laid-back and one of the first things she said is that... More

Had a lousy experience the first time, but thought we'd give it a second chance 2 years later. Sadly, it has not gotten any better. The building is great, but they missed the mark on their menu concept. Plus, the food itself is not good. I ordered eggs (which were undercooked), potatoes (which had too many sprigs of rosemary), and... More

My salmon dish was overly doused in a mustard sauce and salad was ordinary. Server was nice but inexperienced. Booths are comfortable; staff is nice. But doesn't merit a second trip.
