Our family chose The View at Mirror Lake Inn to celebrate our daughter's Sweet 16th B'day with her and several friends. The experience was one we won't forget! The staff were outstanding and the service we received was to be commended. From the time we arrived until we departed, the evening was magical. We were greeted at the entry with... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Mirror Lake Inn for our birthdays in June and decided to try the brunch on Sunday. We thought it was very reasonable at $19.95/person for the whole buffet which included an omlette station and also included toast and coffee/tea/juice (there was a less expensive continental bfast version as well). There was tons of... More

We ate here three times -- once for dinner and twice for breakfast, during a weekend stay at the lodge. For dinner, the chef proved his stuff. For appetizers, we enjoyed a novel pork pate garnished with a small hot pretzel and grainy homemade mustard. It was a local take on a classic French dish and was one of the... More

Our children treated all of us to an anniversary dinner. We chose this restaurant because of the good reviews and the great views. It is a special restaurant. My trout meal was delicious. The pork Oslo Buco should have been a lot more tender. The artichoke pasta dish had hardly any pasta though. Pierre was very attentive and helpful. Don't... More

We had a lovely dinner last night to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. The trout was divine and our favorite dessert was the peanut butter short bread. Our server Pierre was the best! Skip the artichoke pasta dish and the pork osso buco. Good but not great.

We dined at The View restaurant on Mirror Lake Inn and the four of us had a delicious dinner. I ordered the beef filet and it was the best I've ever ordered. My husband enjoyed the loin of lamb and my friend said the scallops were excellent. Our waiter had a sense of humor and was very attentive. The atmosphere... More

Operated by a cozy inn, this is a very nice place, with elegant dark wooden décor, and no cramped spaces. This was the best restaurant of the 6 I visited on a trip around northern New York. Started off with a nice sweet wine, followed by the Harmony Hills pork paté appetizer. This came with a side of mustard, and... More

Ate there last night for my birthday. The service was outstanding, the view very nice and the food was excellent. We were there for a leisurely 2 1/2 hours and enjoyed it all. The pate and soup were very tasty an beautifully presented. We enjoyed the sorbet as a palate cleanser. The duck entree was outstanding. The chocolate tart came... More

I made reservations for my boyfriend's birthday dinner at the View restaurant and we had a very nice time.

My wife made reservations for us at this restaurant and I was honestly nervous about the experience. It seemed very stuff and pricey. I have to admit that I was really impressed with it. The Amuse-bouche was really, really good. Server, while stiff, was very knowledgable and attentive. We sat outside in the screened in porch and had a nice... More
