We have been to Lake Placid many times, and often struggle to find a really good meal at a reasonable price. On the basis of internet reviews, we drove to Pan Dulce and were very glad we did! Keith greeted us warmly at the door and seated us right away. While our young waiter was no doubt fairly new, he... More

Had dinner here on a snowy weekday evening with only a few other diners. The server and house manager were both friendly and accommodating. That night was fixed price only and I had an excellent 3-course meal. They have many large booths with padded seats and backs which make for a cozy feel too. I look forward to returning.

We arrived at this restaurant at @ 7:30 pm. The decor was nice and the staff was friendly, service was good and atmosphere was pleasant. We found it strange to be told that no seats in the dining area were available yet the empty seats that existed were never filled during our entire stay. When we left the restaurant at... More

Best burgers and fries. This place does t look like much on the outside. Don't be fooled. Plus, no parking issues because it's not right in busy downtown Lake Placid.

Valentines day, we did not know about the reservation requirement but we were seated promptly in a fantastic booth. The 5 coarse meal was a bit pricy but you get what you pay for, it was superb ! We will be back . Keep up the good work.

Went to Pan Dolce for an early dinner after skiing. Having a large parking lot made getting there easy after a day on the slopes. The restaurant is new, very nicely designed and food is top notch. Sarah Elizabeth (our server) was very attentive. This place is easy to recommend...

Our original plans for Valentine's Dinner fell through so we ended up at Pan Dolce at the last minute. We didn't have a reservation but they were able to seat us at the bar right away. They had a fixed 5 course menu for the evening. It was, unfortunately, very pricy. I believe $52 a person. We didn't want to... More

Based on the reviews that have been posted about this restaurant, our party of five arrived with happy expectations of a delicious meal. However, nothing about our experience lived up to those expectations, starting with our arrival at Pan Dolce; we were, admittedly, 13 minutes late for our 8 PM reservation, but upon apologizing to the maitre d' for our...
