My wife and I had dinner here earlier this week. It was arguably the worst restaurant meal I have had in the last 25 years. Sand in the scallops, a potato baked to the consistency of a brick, a rib eye steak full of fat and gristle, an apple tart for dessert that was supposed to be hot but was... More

Ordered the seasonal Pumpkin Crème Brule and it came out in a mini pumpkin! The best I've ever had, and when asked if I could have 5 more spoons to share with friends, the staff was very fast and accommodating! Not to mention the live music in the lounge was the perfect touch!

The food here is some of the best I have ever eaten. We went with a group of 6 and not one of us had a bad meal. The price may be a bit high but you get what you pay for. The waitress was on top of her game and even though there was a full house, we did... More

Overpriced and few choices. Even the "Lounge" menu is too expensive and not to my teenagers liking. We stayed at Whiteface Lodge and ate here on our first night - we did not like it well enough to return.

My husband and I are patrons there fairly often, so I knew the food would be great, however, the new menu Chef David put out was absolutely mouthwatering. I started with the peach and butter lettuce salad which was accompanied by fresh ricotta, a light citrus dressing and fresh honeycomb, yes HONEYCOMB- a perfect combinations of flavors and textures.

We ate at Kanu for lunch today. Jordan was our server. The food and service were outstanding! I had the lobster pizza. Delicious! My husband had the burger and artisan fries. We shared the brownie sundae. Everything was exceptional!

We sat at the bar in the Kanu lounge. Zack is fantastic! So friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! He custom made a drink for my boyfriend by asking a few simple questions. It was fantastic! We split a wood fired margarita pizza and I had the Kilcoyne burger. The pizza was soo yummy with buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil! My burger... More

Love Kanu. We have been there for breakfast and ordered room service when staying at the Whiteface Lodge. Delicious food. Great service. The most beautiful environment to eat I have seen in the Adirondacks. A must do when traveling to Lake Placid.
