As a special treat, we decided to sample the fare of this highly rated restaurant and were not disappointed! It deserves the kudos. The four adults at our table each had a different main course and each raved about his/ her dish. My wife who is an unabashed foody raved about her prime beef/foie gras and being permitted a taste,... More

From out of the clouds of a mundane rainy trip comes the light of a perfect meal. From the moment of entering the door, the introduction of the waiter, the selection of the meal to the final desert and drinks, this experience was perfect. It became an event that my wife and I will remember. Our thanks to Pierre our... More

We recently had dinner and really enjoyed our meal with one exception. We had the pork pate appetizer and it was quite bland. That's what prevented us from giving it an excellent review. I had their stuffed quail and it really was superb. My spouse had a cod dish and she also said it was excellent. As I stated, everything... More

Absolutely beautiful dining room and superb service are the hallmarks of the View. We were given a great table with a view of Mirror Lake. Our sever, Siena, was extremely professional, explaining all of the offerings clearly and completely. She brought us a duck confit before we even ordered and we were off. The Market Special was oven roasted quail... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a Marcy room which was lovely but should be at $500/night.. Greeted by front desk clear who had her speech memorized and wasn't going to vary from it. Offered us a bland chocolate chip coffee as she lectured at us instead of answering the questions we asked and wanted answered. The lake staff was... More

My family and I stayed in one of the Lake side cottages on Mirror Lake. WOW it was beautiful, we had the perfect view of the Lake and our own private porch which made it even better. We were delighted by the nightly turn down service. Speaking of service, the people who work at the Mirror Lake Inn only made... More

After being disappointed by the droning upheaval of a water ski show (alas we thought Mirror Lake was motor boat free) we sought and found refuge in the charming and elegant View restaurant which did not disappoint with a sumptuous array of homemade jams, exquisite omelets, pastries and more. Our server made us feel so welcome and everything was absolutely... More

The View has an old world charm and quiet atmosphere which was perfect for a romantic dinner. The food was delicious especially, the filet mignon and the service impeccable. We were seated right by the window, but the trees across the street were so overgrown, you can barely see the lake. The staff handled an unfortunate situation professionally when a... More
