I normally don't choose these types of restaurants but when I see it rated #1 on trip advisor and read about it a year ago as one of the must eat restaurants in New York State, I'm going to try it. I really hate to say this because I really wanted to love everything but I didn't. The view was... More

The title of our review says it all - we had a delicious meal, good service, and we were seated at a window with a great view of the lake. Nice wine list.

Had a seat near the window, with a view of the lake. Service was excellent; food was very good. Not a lot of options for vegetarians (vegan? forget it... I imagine they would have made something special if I had asked...) We really enjoyed a relaxing dinner and were glad we went here for dinner once during our stay, but... More

Overall we had a good experience here but we had some trouble convincing the manager to seat us at a table with a view. When you name your restaurant "The View" you ought not be surprised when customers expect to be able to see the lake. There was a table available but it was "in the bar" as in adjacent... More

The food was awesome! with different combination of tastes that you would not think of putting together. Nice to see that they use local meats and vegetables in preparing the different dishes. Food is a major part but also the employees have to contribute to the overall success of the evening. They have a GREAT employee staff on hand to... More

Make a reservation and request a window table to view the serenity of Mirror Lake while you dine on fabulous food, cocktails and wine. The Filet Mignon was the best I have ever had - let dearly grilled with a lovely rub with a touch of maple sugar perhaps? Cooked perfectly and served with creative, fresh sides. Paired well with...

Definitely worth a visit to The View for a special occasion. Be sure to make a reservation and get a table near the window. The views are outstanding. The food was wonderful, albeit very expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

Whether we are talking about the amuse-bouche, the starter, the main dish or the dessert, every bite is a little piece of heaven.

Wonderful old setting, polished decor, and well-prepared food. But then there's the service: the staff tries too hard and spoils the meal. They are trained and polite, but the “perfect” and “wonderful” feels robotic after three courses.
