Went for our first anniversary. From the view of mirror lake to the staff, the food, to the ambiance of the restaurant, everything was superb. If your looking Olive Garden this is not your place. If you want to be treated like your the only customer then make a reservation! Remember you get what you pay for! Worth every penny!

We were staying at the Inn for the weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary, which was a wonderful experience enhanced by fine dining at The View upon our arrival. Our dinners were beautifully presented and tasty. We keep kosher and there were sufficient fish and vegetarian choices for us. Even the bread is amazing, and we were happily given more... More

Without exception each member of the party raved about their entrée selections. The fine dining experience, with palate cleanser and closing sweets, was not lost on us. Seating in the separated dining area with The View of the lake also offered privacy. Service was excellent!

"The View" offers a nice variety of entrees to fit everyone's taste. The service is first class. The food and drinks are delicious and with Mirror Lake as the backdrop for dining, how can you go wrong. Just spectacular. Can't wait to go back.

The food, service and setting overlooking Mirror Lake was excellent. However, restaurant seemed a bit tired - considering price thought ambience was a bit stale & in need of a facelift. Food was amazing, the homemade bread and all the courses were very well prepared & presented & our waiter couldn't have been more professional, pace of service was perfect.... More

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).

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.

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.
