Excellent local, fresh, in season food perfectly prepared

I hadn't been to Lake Placid in many years and we went for dinner. One of the best dinners we ever had and we go out all the time. We have a farm and we can tell when things are fresh and everything was fresh and perfectly prepared. Nothing overworked or pretentious just clean flavors and great... read more

The View has absolutely the finest Sunday brunch around. I was there only this one time while on a vacation, so I really cannot say if it is always like this. The elegant setting along with wonderful food made for a great time and memory of the area. Our server was so pleasant and kind. We were seated immediately, and... More

We have dined there many times in the past, but each time I find better than the past. Their Sunday "Brunches" are hard to beat with some of the best omelets I have ever had. Evening dining at the View Restaurant has always been a favorite. The wine list is extensive, the service is excellent, and the view is one... More

The View feels like a restaurant that's past its peak. The food we had was good, but not exceptional. My wife's medium rare was more medium than rare and relatively uninspiring. My main complaint was the service. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. The waitress was nice, but I had the impression of a college student working the... More

Dear MichFoodnWineLover; Thank you for dining at The View restaurant recently. I’m disappointed that while you were here you didn’t make your feelings known therefore making it impossible for us to correct the situation. We don’t pride ourselves on being perfect, nobody is, but we do pride ourselves on correcting any error we make if we’re made aware of the... More

We had the beautiful evening on the screened-in dining porch. Service was great, well spaced for the atmosphere. Great international wine list. Food selection was also well spread out for all palettes. After dinner a walk around the Inn and a stop at the library made it a perfect evening. We will be returning before the vacation ends to try... More

The View definitely has some old world charm sitting up on a hill overlooking the lake. Not all tables have a view and our table for 6 didnt look over the lake but the restaurant is very charming. A lot of the food items are more specialty and less common so we had to ask questions about them. Unlike many... More
