“Romantic and elegant”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I went here on the last night of our vacation. The food was spectacular, the atmosphere was elegant yet cozy and the entire experience was charming. A must-go for anyone in the Lake Placid region looking for a romatic and refined meal.

“Gourmet”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Top of the line. My husband had Bison Ossco Buco and I had Lamb Loin. We switched the sides w/o a problem. To top it off, since I refused to leave a morsel behind, they packed it up. The next day, we brought it downstairs, where it was plated, heated and served with a smile. Wow!

“Spectacular experience”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We just returned from the girls weekend and the experience was amazing. My husband and I have stayed here before and each time we are delighted. This time us 3 "girls" had dinner and breakfast in the View. My sister and daughter who have never visited here before were just amazed at the quality of service and food. The breakfast buffet was excellent and when we asked for something not on the buffet, it was provided immediately and with a SMILE!! The atmosphere was lovely as well and yes we will not hesitate to visit again.

“Continued Excellence”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

My wife and I have been staying at the Mirror Lake Inn every year for the past 25 years. Not only are the Inn and the surroundings beautiful, but the View Restaurant year after year continues its excellence in every way---outstanding service, menu selections, food and drink. Our son and daughter-in-law have recently stayed at the Inn and dined at the View, and now they're hooked and intend to return. If you are in or near Lake Placid, this is the place to stay and dine.

“Elegant restaurant”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The atmosphere in this restaurant is magical. Beautiful decor well cared for. It seems there is a fireplace burning around each corner. Our server was more than competent, and only the food surpassed the excitement of dining there. Very deserving of all the diamonds they have amassed.
