“Simply 5 star!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

My husband and I stay at The Mirror Lake Inn several times during the year and always enjoy dining at The View. We look forward to seeing Barry and Katie, because they welcome us with open arms and make us feel so special. Our dining experienced this month was one of the best experiences we have ever had. We would like to commend Chef Jared and his culinary team for a memorable and outstanding meal truly one of the best dining experiences and meal we have ever had. Each sumptuous bite of food was well thought out and artistically displayed on our plates. When booking our reservation they asked if we had any dietary concerns that the kitchen needed to be aware of and they handled my husbands gluten allergy without any problems. The wine list is award winning offering old world and new world wines, something for everyone. We travel often and build our vacations around fantastic food and wine, The View Restaurant is beautiful, memorable and definitely 5 star!

“Mirror Lake Inn @ the View”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful evening it was at the View at Mirror Lake Inn.
My husband and I skied in -17 that day, and what a way to end our few days away with such a great dinner. Looking forward to future times in Lake Placid, and stopping in to check out their other restaurants. Awesome time! Thanks....

“Consistently excellent!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here Sunday night and ate at the View for dinner. We had a friendly and attentive server, Cassandra, and the food was delicious. We had a cozy table next to the fireplace, which made for a lovely and romantic evening. The wine list was extensive and we found a favorite to compliment our food. We have dined here several times now and the experience is consistently excellent. We will be back again soon!

“Consistently excellent!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for a quick getaway and we made a dinner reservation at the View. We have eaten here several times before and it is always excellent. We had Cassandra for our server, and she was pleasant and attentive throughout our meal. The ambiance was great and we were given a table by the fireplace, which was nice and cozy. We ordered the scallops and a fish special, haddock I believe, and both were delicious and beautifully presented. The wine list is extensive and we found a favorite to enjoy with our meal. We will return again soon!

“A must-eat in Lake Placid”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Everything was excellent: the service, the food, the ambiance, and especially the view. Make your reservations early, as they tend to fill up quickly, but if you can get a reservation, you need to eat here. Pierre was our server, and he was excellent. Food was brought out in a timely manner, and they even stipulate that "well-behaved children" are welcome. Loud children, however, will be seated in an area so as not to disturb other guests, which was amazing. The little touches---like a palate-cleansing lemon thyme sorbet and a birthday picture taken on their camera and printed out for us---made the evening a perfect end to any day.
