I had never heard of the lodge or the restaurant. My oversight. We were visiting family at the lodge and upon entry I thought that that I had gone back 70 years to some of the lumber baton lodges in Canada. Exquisite woodwork. Authentic furniture. Imposing but cozy. The restaurant takes over the mood and style of the lodge. Starched while linen. Sparkling glassware. Menu was adventurous but had staples for the less adventurous. Service was superb. Waiter knew every nuance of each dish and explained it again when the food arrived. Had cod wrapped in procuitto. Local veggies. Good came hot. Desserts not as inventive as the main menu but still good.

from our beautiful table looking out on the lake, to the fantastic service by Pierre, this was a most enjoyable evening, my only regret is we didn't book dinner there for our other night stay. the food was prepared perfectly, one of the best manhattans I have had, and a wide selection of wines to choose from, all in all a great night.

My husband made reservations for my birthday dinner in this restaurant, and i was truly surprised when i walked in this place. It was truly romantic specially since we sat by the window overlooking Mirror Lake. The service and staff were great and the food delicious, drinks were good too. The price was high $$$, i guess you should expect that when you come to a place like this. I would definitely come back to eat here again. We had an awesome time.

I ate here with my family on May 10 2014 after graduating from Paul Smiths college with a BA in Hotel Resort and Tourism Management. The food was the best I have had in years the wine was great. I especially loved that they took a group picture of me and my family on graduation night that was a special touch. Great views of the lake as well. If you are staying in Lake Placid The View at The Mirror Lake Inn is the place to eat. Great food, wonderful staff, and great views of the lake a real enjoying experience. I would defiantly suggest this as a got to do while in Lake Placid

If you are staying at the Mirror Lake Inn, it would be unwise for you to miss having a meal here. From breakfast (we had the meal plan each morning -- fantastic deal) to dinner, I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Food was delicious (might have been the most tender filet mignon I have every had, and I have had many) and the servers were incredibly lovely. They remembered us from one day to the next and it was fun to chat about what we'd done around town and what we had planned next.

The meal plan breakfast was superb. If you like staying at 4- and 5-star luxury B&Bs, which we do, you will find this breakfast comparable to that. Such a great selection and SO DELICIOUS. I have never had a better breakfast sandwich. I am going to crave it.

Dinner was a very fine-dining experience. All the food was fresh and beautifully presented, and the portions were excellent. Again, it was the ambiance of the place and the service that really took the experience up a notch. It's just wonderful to sit at a candle-lit table overlooking the lake, beside a fireplace, and enjoy a very relaxed and delicious meal. To both start AND end your day like that was the best part of our vacation!
