My first vegetarian entree and it was yummy! Parmesean risotto stuffed delicate squash with pine nut crust. OMG!

The window view of the lake is always the best setting for a great meal and great service. To start off the Local Greens where nicely tossed with Sherry Citrus Vinaigrette. The Risotto Fritters were lightly fried with spring onion aioli, the Salmon Special for...my wife was well worth the trip and House Burger for me, fully loaded. Creme Burlee and a few signature drinks. A must to eat at in Lake Placid!More

Our experience, meal and service, was wonderful! The Mirror Lake Inn and The View Restaurant get a 10 out of 10 on safety. For starters, Amber, was the icing on the cake for service. We had a great time, skilled server, terrific personality and when...I go back will demand for her to take care of us. She was funny but also very attentive to our meal and helped us with choices, all delish. The restaurant clearly understands social distancing, cleanliness and overall safety. The food was terrific, we had a unique pasta dish, the best burger and fries I ever ate. And of course, the skillet chocolate chip cookie for dessert was fantastic!More

This restaurant (as is the hotel) is very Covid conscious. They take your temperature before seating, give you personalized menus that you can keep or they throw away, and use a sanitizing wand after each table reset. Service was very good. The staff all wear...masks (no gloves) and the tables are sufficiently spaced. We had a liter bottle of Saratoga sparkling water ($9). Three kinds of bread with Vermont creamery butter was brought to the table. The French onion soup ($16) was good. The pot roast was very good ($30) as was the ricotta gnocchi ($34). The chocolate chip skillet cookie with ice cream ($15) was just okay since the cookie was almost liquid. It wasn't undercooked per se, but it was like the cookie was melted.More

It is a little unfair to appraise the full quality of the restaurant since we visited with the usual COVID-19 restrictions, e.g., limited menu. But the food was good, wine list expansive, and the wait staff very friendly. We recommend it!More

While staying at the Mirror Lake Inn, we made reservations for two nights of dining at The View -- and are glad that we did. The staff was truly remarkable, particularly the hostess Hailey and waiters Caleb and Katie. We enjoyed the food, particularly the...ricotta gnocchi main course.
