First time in Lake Placid and decided to try this restaurant based on all of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. This is probably the most upscale restaurant in town, so it wasn't cheap, but well worth it. Everything was first class from the food to the service. I had the scallops and my husband had the trout - both entrees... More

A real dining experience, without being pretentious. I've eaten all over the world, and the brunch ranks with the top meals I've had anywhere. Homemade EVERYTHING

My wife and I accompanied some friends to Lake Placid for a fall get-away recently. While we did not stay at the Mirror Lake Inn (and wish we had), we did stop there for a wonderful breakfast on a couple of occasions. The food was wonderful, and the service was impeccable. As I said, we did not stay this time,... More

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
