Best Restaurant in Lake Placid

My wife and I went because we had a gift certificates and we're glad we did. The care and attention the staff give diners is second to none. The dishes are complex and clearly delicately prepared. Totally worth every penny!

Very pleasant restaurant, beautifully situated. Quiet, so you can hear each other talk ( in itself refreshing) . The service very attentive. The food was quite good but we expected more for the price.

This was the second time that we dined at the View and the experience was everything that we had anticipated. The quality and presentation of the meal was everything that we would expect from a 4 star restaurant. But more than that, the wait staff couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly, adding to the enjoyment of the evening. We... More

Beautiful hotel on the lake.Seems like they are trying to run a fancy restaurant. But the food and service were off unfortunately. That said, there really isn't any fabulous high-end restaurant in the area. High prices, but the quality doesn't follow.

Everything we ate (three dinners) was terrific. Service can be a bit slow for a NYC person but I just needed to learn to relax! It's all good. View is lovely so be sure to go during daylight hours.

Our family was in Lake Placid for a weekend wedding, and ten of us were in town early and celebrated a mini-family reunion (and two birthdays) at The View. We're so glad we did. The atmosphere, the service, the bar, and of course the food were all outstanding! Truly an Adirondack experience we'll remember.
