The View restaurant is fine dining. The service, the food, the wine list are all top notch. Combine that with the location and the view of the lake and this is one special place. It costs more, but it is worth it. We make a point to dine here each time we visit Lake Placid.

We stayed at Whiteface but a bunch of people told us we had to go to the Mirror Lake Inn. When I phoned to reserve for dinner I was asked if it was a special occasion. I am so glad they asked because I never would have thought to volunteer it was our anniversary. From reservation to the ladies who... More

The breakfast buffet was an elegant dining experience. There were many choices on the buffet, the presentation was beautiful. The service was extremely good and this is a must at the Mirrpr Lake Inn. I will dine here again.

The food was just as good as any restaurant anywhere in the world. The Tomato Consomme was so light and refreshing. My Filet was cooked to perfection. We received a special Anniversary Plate with wonderful confections. Just made our dinner extra special.

The View was by far the best meal we had in Lake Placid and the only meal we would call "gourmet." Our whole experience was first class from the moment we stepped through the door till the homemade complimentary chocolate truffles at the end. If you want a special occasion "dress-up" night this is the place to go. We didn't... More

I made reservations for three of us online. Not only did I receive an email confirmation, but a follow up phone call on the day of our meal. Our waiter was a wine consultant from a nearby town, We were seated a few minutes after our reservation time, but enjoyed the wait in the bar. Not only was our waiter... More

My husband and I were very disappointed with the food and service at the View. We were guests at the Mirror Lake Inn where the restaurant is located and had a made a reservation way in advance. But we waited for a half hour for our table. More importantly, the food was awful. The prices were so overpriced for the... More

Thank you for being our guest. We very much appreciate getting honest, constructive and accurate feedback from our guests. Unfortunately this review includes none of the above. The reason you waited for a table is because you requested a window table. We had several other nice tables that we offered to you when you arrived and again after you had... More

The 6 of us stopped in for a before dinner drink. The place has a screened in alcove that we used and therefore had to serve ourselves. The drinks were fine but there was some confusion trying to get the bartender to understand what we wanted. The place has a great reputation but perhaps it is more inclined towards diners.

Thank you for being our guest at Taste Bistro! It’s unfortunate that you didn’t truly experience The View restaurant (where this review is posted) and only had cocktails in Taste Bistro. We’re glad that you enjoyed your drinks and the great views of the mountains! We’re sorry if there was any confusion about ordering drinks on the porch. We welcome... More

We chose The View based on reviews of other top contributors. This is a fine dining restaurant in an equally fine Inn. From start to finish, the meal was a culinary masterpiece. My wife had the Sea Scallops and I had the Prime Filet. Both were excellently prepared and presented. Even the two palate cleansers were works of art. As... More
