A very nice, smallish place with interesting decor. The menu is eclectic -- from game dishes to steak to vegan options. Great service and some of the best food we've had in awhile. A must do if you're in Lake Placid.
First, make a reservation as there is limited seating at this time. The staff was excellent all around. Very friendly and attentive and went out of their way when they discovered it was our anniversary. Greatly appreciated. The menu is fairly short but elective and...creative. Appreciated that they offered vegetarian as well as vegan options. When we are back in the area we will definitely enjoy another meal at Salt of the Earth.More
Excellent food and service. We went for our anniversary dinner while staying in Keene, less than 15 minutes away. Be sure to
make advance reservations since they have limited capacity. The food is an eclectic mix of cuisines, which create a very tasty and interesting...menu. We started with Mulligatawny soup and the Berbere shrimp - WOW both were outstanding. Our entrees included the moroccan venison stew and the heritage pork chop with al pastor sauce (like lamb shawarma). Again the flavor parings were unusual but were delicious. We ended with the ethereal peach shortcake. Holy moly the whole dinner was top notch and the service outstanding. 5 stars!!More
We loved the limited choice fantastic menu and also the location being in an old house. My venison stew served on a bed on couscous was a surprise. I added extra pepper and salt for the needed wild (non-farm raised) kick and husband’s pork chop...was excellent in size, creatively presented and taste. Great restaraunt in the small village of Lake Placid. We’d go back!More
Got in last minute after a cancellation. Food was excellent as was service. Great social distancing & timer reservations. I hope they can thrive in spite of all the restrictions! Pork chop, wild boar chop & delicious salads.
The Stella reviews are well deserved at this restaurant. I had the duck which was very good and the side of potato, cauliflower and dried cherries was out of this world delicious. My son loved his burger which was cooked perfectly and was moist and...flavorful. My husband had the Salmon over lentils which was very good as well. Ashley our server was wonderful and very attentive to making sure we had a great dining experience.More
Having read other reviews on TripAdvisor, we booked a reservation at Salt of the Earth Bistro for our visit to Lake Placid. The restaurant setting is terrific, on the first floor of a house. The food was terrific and incredibly creative. The mulligatawny soup was...tasty and unique, and the pan seared magret duck breast was remarkable. The duck was cooked perfectly, and I still crave the side potato, cauliflower and dried cherry salad a week after visiting. We truly look forward to returning on our next trip to Lake Placid.More
