The View is the only AAA four-diamond fine dining restaurant in Lake Placid, New York. Overlooking Mirror Lake and the Adirondack High Peaks, this restaurant is renown for its commitment to food and wine. The concept is elegant comfort foods with an extensive wine list that has been recognized for excellence by the Wine Spectator for the past Thirteen years. The menu changes three times each year. Prepared Dinner at The James Beard House November 2008. We are also new member to The Adirondack Harvest. Taste Bistro & Bar adjoins the View with Casual dinner fare, have drinks by the fire and relax. Live music on Friday nights in Taste Bistro. The perfect place for the "special occasion".

Everything about our visit was great - the service first and foremost... our table location, the lovely music - and the scrumptious buffet (and I'm not usually a buffet person). We loved everything about it - and thought it was quite a treat to go out for Sunday Easter Brunch... We will definitely do it again next year - and... More

Our meal was excellent with all homemade food from the delicious breads to the homemade ice cream for dessert. Our waiter and waitress were both excellent. The Adirondack décor is very cozy.

When you get into this neighborhood of menu prices, the product better deliver without question. Wasn't the case at The View. Location is excellent, dining room is very comfortable, service is very good too. But the food was just ok. Two started with Beet Bisque that was prepped with cider vinegar.

Overall a nice place. You may feel as satisfied in other area restaurants when you compare with this one ( especially for the prices ). Different crowd, classical music, different environment… your choice….

This restaurant rates a solid 4. I had a terrific dinner there with creative cocktails out on the porch overlooking beautiful Mirror Lake. My next visit to town will absolutely include a meal here.

All I can say is the whole experience was fabulous! The entire Inn was still decorated for Christmas, inside and out.The steak was outstanding and the service friendly, but impeccable. My dessert was served on a plate decorated with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate! Our waitress even sent us home with a framed photo of the occasion.
