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. The restaurant has all the features one expects from fine dining - an extra-courteous staff, a knowledgeable & attentive server, and gourmet food PLUS a little birthday dessert plate with a candle on it, brought at the end of our meal....

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

The salmon was cooked perfectly, but all of the garnishes (quinoa, bok choi) were bland, and my wife's artichoke and agnolotti main course was virtually flavorless. The chocolate torte and the chocolate truffles that followed were spectacular. Overall, not a good value for the price.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, I would not classify my dinner as anything special. But I am picky. If you want a beautiful spot on the Lake this is it, but stick to the lighter menu items rather than the more gourmet sounding items. I wish I had done so but it was a 35th anniversary dinner...
