Had a wonderful breakfast with a unique menu item...graham encrusted french toast with a hazelnut reduction along with real maple syrup...of course would expect nothing less of this restaurant. Wonderful freshly squeezed orange juice - but I find the coffee a little too strong for my likely although others in my party quite enjoyed it. Other breakfast items looked delicious. A wonderful start to the day and wonderful service.

Thank fortitudeX4

Derek took care of us from the start. He treated our daughters with respect and allowed them to act like young adults. He was attentive throughout the evening. Excellent service.

I won't describe each of our meals. They were all fantastic. Special mention to the Fois Gras appetizer - I thought it was the best I've ever had. Each of the menu items looked special and I'm sure nothing comes out of that kitchen that isn't prepared perfectly.

The View is a AAA 4 Diamond restaurant. It is everything you would expect from a restaurant with that decoration. We have come to trust the AAA rating. The View is no exception.

If you are in Lake Placid and you are looking for a truly nice place for dinner, this is a great choice.

You don't find restaurants like this anymore. Excellentservice, food to remember and ambiance that make you feel thousand of miles away from home. Had the best lobster benedict eggs for breakfast. Why not have dinner and have the kids stay in room to watch a movie since the View is right down the stair in the hotel.

We go to the Mirror Lake Inn every year in early December and we love eating at The View restaurant. When we were at The Mirror Lake Inn in December 2012, The View restaurant was closed for dinner and we were very disappointed. Their food is unbelievable along with the service. We did have breakfast at the restaurant and that was wonderful.

Dinner at "the View" shoud be on your list of things to experience when you are in Lake Placid NY.The food is prepared with imagination; relying on the excellent techniques and skill set in the kitchen. The wait-staff could not be more professional and attentive. As an added bonus,the view of Mirror Lake is spectacular. It is well worth the price and time to make a reservation in advance whenever you are in the Adirondacks. We will be sure to make it a habit.
