My husband and I stayed two nights in Lake Placid for our anniversary on the weekend of 9/20-9/22/2013. As it was our anniversary weekend and we were away from the kids for the whole weekend we wanted adult dinner, two places were picked out; The View on night one and Kanu on night two. The View did not disappoint in one bit! The wine selection was good, we had a bottle of La Spinosa wine (oddly we couldn't figure out the picture of what was supposed to be on the bottle). First was our our "small taste" a Parmesan salad type thing which had fantastic flavors. We split the goose liver appetizer which was fantastic (forgot the technical name). Then a lemon mint sorbet to cleanse the plate before the main entrees. Both our meals were fantastic, cooked to perfection! My husband and I ate every last bite of them! My husband had the braised beef ribs (was a special that night) and I had the Prime Beef Filet.
Not only was the food fantastic but so was the service and the attention to detail. When the guy came out to give us bread he explained the difference in the bread choices, just as they did while giving you your meals and the small meals. The waitress was very personable and just made us feel very comfortable.
As it was our anniversary and they were aware of this, even though we were full they still brought out a complimentary dessert, and they even took our photo and gave it back to us in a frame so we can remember the meal and the place.
The prices here are right on par with other 4 star restaurants and considering the service and attention to detail they gave us along with the ambiance of overlooking the lake, it was a perfect place to have our romantic dinner and we didn't mind paying the price (unlike our meal at Kanu the next night).
