A nice meal with a view

Enjoyed a nice lunch on the patio overlooking Lake Flower. The daily specials were great - we tried the chicken wrap with garlic Parmesan dressing - yum! Had a nice glass of moscato (better than I've had in most local restaurants) with my meal. Friendly staff, although our waitress was in training... read more

A terrific restaurant in the heart of Saranac Lake offering fine authentic Italian cuisine including a wide selection of pasta dishes and pizza. Not in the mood for Italian? No problem as a variety of fish and meat dishes are also offered diners. Lovely little bar that offers up a fine selection of wine and spirits along with a bar... More

The excellent service stood out considering the "small town feel" of this place. Both the pasta dishes and steak were great. Pricing was excellent for the quality of the food and service. Another thing that stood out was lack of ear-splitting noise common in so many restaurants these days. I could comfortably talk with my guests. Will certainly go there... More

Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Saranac Lake/Lake Placid. In the summer months there is an amazing view of Lake Flower. You can sit on the outdoor patio and just soak in the gorgeous sun and views of Lake Flower while drinking down chilled peroni's fresh off the tap. In the winter months the restaurant sits across the street... More

I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone - - not only was it convenient to our motel and right across the street from the Ice Palace, the waiter was more than accommodating, and the food was delicious and relatively inexpensive for what it was!!! I am looking forward to going back again during my next trip and maybe trying... More

Here is the scene: Louis Prima music playing in the background, excellent, friendly service, great food, wine and conversation. This is our local spot when in Saranac Lake for a 2-3 hour relaxing dinner of wine, calamari and a pizza to share for two for around $40-60. Jim, who we love as our waiter, always takes great care of us,... More

And the waiter, Joe, was really friendly, welcoming and entertaining. The menu is pretty good, a lot of choice for every taste.

Excruciatingly slow, both in terms of service and food delivery. We visited for lunch on a slow day. There were only 3 other tables occupied. That said, it took an hour to get 2 pizzas and 2 burgers to us. The waitperson never came back to the table to check to see if we wanted more drinks while we were... More
