“Always Wonderful”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We have stayed at the White Face Lodge several times and always dine at Kanu. Although it is on the pricey side for the region it is holistically one of the greatest experiences. The setting and decor is second to none with a breathtaking view of White Face Mountain set in a beautifully decorated Adirondack lodge setting. The food is always fresh, flavorful, and well presented. The staff is well trained and professional in their discipline. Whether you are staying at the White Face Lodge and looking for a great dining experience that conveniently is right in the palm of your hand, visiting the Lake Placid region and searching for an exceptional meal, or reside in the High Peeks region and want to celebrate in grand style you can't go wrong with Kanu.

“If you want to get away from the Lake Placid typical restaurants”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Lovely physical restaurant, good service, quality food, fair prices. After a week of eating at most of the restaurants on the Lake Placid main strip, this was an oasis.

“Food was good - but be prepared for a big bill!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We stayed at the White Face Lodge so this was where we ate our first night. The wait staff was lovely, and dining on the outdoor terrace was just lovely. Food was very, very good and served promptly. But beware: it's pretty pricey. The Kanu Lounge across the way serves some of the same food in a less formal setting.

“Consistently delicious!!!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We have been vacationing in Lake Placid for the past 4 years at the White Face Lodge with our 4 young children. We are from the NY/NJ area and are spoiled with the abundance of great dining in our area. Being that we are staying in the lodge that Kanu is located, we are always looking for restaurants outside the facility. We have visited many of Lake Placid's local restaurants (even the ones that limit children to 12 or older) and have had good experiences, but upon once again eating at Kanu, we find that the food is consistently exceptional, the staff is attentive and personable, and we truly enjoy our dining experience. We look forward to many more years of vacationing in Lake Placid and eating at Kanu!

“Delicious and Wonderful Time!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We had a wonderful dinner at Kanu's. As we were visiting from Rochester, we weren't quite sure of where to go for our friend Steve's birthday celebration. My friend Jean made the reservation for Kanu's and we were all delighted with our dinners and desserts. When Steve's dessert was brought out, a candle was in and on the plate written "Happy Birthday". When we sang Happy Birthday" to him the staff and other guests sang along with us. The setting was simply magnificent and the service was great!
