Had Dinner here evening of August 23rd. Although the ambience is very nice and the view of the lake terrific, the meal itself was acceptable but certainly not 4-diamond. I had the Prime Filet and my wife the Grilled Trout, and I started with the Vichyssoise. The soup, although very tasty and typical, was overthickened a tad, Acceptable though. I... More

Ate here previously and in fact I will be going again next week. Fantastic fine dining with great food & service. Not inexpensive by any means, but you get what you pay for.

We went here for our 35th anniversary and we were not disappointed. The staff were so attentive and the food was excellent to say nothing of the Chianti we chose to have with our meal. This is indeed a 5 star establishment.

Restaurant is in the hotel - we didn't stay there so that bit of info was news to us. Once we found it we were impressed. Great service, polite but not intrusive, great menu, fantastic desserts and nice view. It was our anniversary and couple at next table was celebrating their 50th. Good place for such occasions.

The view restaurant is easily the finest restaurant in Lake Placid. White table cloth, artisan prepared food, impeccable service, fine dining experience from beginning to end. Appetizers, entrees and desserts were flawless in taste, and presentation. Drinks and wine were same quality.

Our meals were unique, tasty, and beautifully presented. We enjoyed dinner and dessert and both were excellent. Wonderful service from the staff as well. One person in our party was celebrating a milestone birthday and they thoughtfully brought a special dish with signature chocolates to add a personal touch. Could not be better -- we highly recommend it!!

My wife and I dined at the View restaurant in the Mirror Lake Inn Lake Placid for a special birthday and we were really impressed. Our server Melissa was extremely friendly and helpful with everything and our meals were top shelf. We did a "surf & turf" thing- we ordered two specials- a striped bass and a rib eye steak... More

The food was fantastic. It seems like there is a lot of thought that goes into the changing seasonal menu. Service was excellent. Do not miss if you are in the area and are looking for a special occasion restaurant.

Ambience a little tired. Needs noise control. Wedding music booming throughout. Very fresh farm to table. Nice presentation.
