We had heard so many good reviews of this place that we thought we had to try it, so we did. The ambience is spectacular. Low light in a rustic, High Peaks atmosphere is very inviting, and the bartender is superb. We found, however, that the food was not so superb and the service spotty because it seemed our server...

We had the veal, the onion soup, the escargot, the crab cakes, everything was amazing! The Inn is a great place to enjoy one of the best meals you will have in Lake Placid! Very charming setting, was a perfect choice to celebrate our anniversary! You cant go wrong here!

We had dinner here and my husband had the best filet mignon he had ever eaten. It was done to perfection and melted in your mouth. We had the squash soup which was delicious. The salad special had squash in it also, and was very good. The apple dessert was also wonderful. The only disappointment was the lobster roll, while... More

Stayed at the Interlaken Inn for 2 nights during the fall season and had a wonderful time. The room decor was lovely with lots of historic charm and updated bathroom. We also had a fabulous dinner with friends at the Interlaken restaurant. All items are homemade and delicious. The arugula salad with butternut squash, cashews, sunflower seeds, and homemade maple...

The drinks, the food, and the atmosphere... everything was beyond amazing! Chef Dunford works some magic with his culinary skills and I can't even put into words how much I enjoyed all of the food! The waitress, I believe her name was Rebecca, went above and beyond as well. Lobster Roll is a must, I won't even bother ordering one... More

Everything about this place was wonderful. Came here for dinner on a Saturday night with a reservation I had made a couple weeks prior. The atmosphere was quaint and the staff were very attentive. The food was so delicious. French Onion Soup and Creme Bruele are a must! Can't wait to come back and visit.

If you have been missing the chance to go to a "real" restaurant while you are vacationing in Lake Placid, this restaurant would be a good idea. The atmosphere is fine dining north woods style, the food is very good, and the menu changes according to the season and what is available locally. The service is on the formal side,... More

We were treated well at the Interlaken. Our table wasn't to our liking, but we were moved cheerfully. Bob, our waiter, was friendly, professional and attentive. Our food was prepared and presented well, all 3 dishes, Veal Saltimbocca, Halibut special and we all agreed the Pork Tenderloin was exquisite. The salads were also very good as starters. It was a...

Gourmet dinner experience in a unique Victorian Inn. Setting was beautiful, food was the best meal I have ever had in Lake Placid, and service provided by Bob was absolutely amazing. Every detail was perfect!

Chose bistro (bar area) to eat. Good cocktails. Good menu choices, interesting specials. Group of 6 served promptly, courses timely. Lobster roll was excellent. Enjoyable evening.
