We returned after many years to Mirror Lake and ate here on Sat. night. It was very busy being President's birthday. Everything we had was delicious. Drinks and food are pricey so bring your pocketbook. Service was great. Overall a good experience and a lovely hotel and bar. We will return.

This restaurant is upscale and has great views of the lake. We had 8:30 reservations so it was pretty dark when we were there, but you could imagine how beautiful it would be in the daylight or at sunset. Service was great and food was delicious. I had the scallops, and my husband ordered the prime filet. Both were great... More

Some friends recommended a few restaurants in Lake Placid, and the View was one of them. We had a very nice evening there. The food was very good, and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The wine list was pretty good, too. If you are looking for a nice place for dinner in Lake Placid, without having to deal with the... More

This is a classy restaurant with a romantic atmosphere. The food is top notch, the service is impeccable. It was nice to enjoy a delicious meal with friends. The gnocchi dish I had was flavourful and accompanied with lots of vegetables and a flavourful sauce. My husband's short rib portion was generous and delicious as well.

We had a wonderful dinner here. My fianceé took me her as a celebration for my birthday. We shared the foie gras appetizer, wonderful. She had the Duck special and I had the Fish special. Both were amazing. For dessert , Pumpkin Cheesecake and Espresso. Of course a good bottle of wine with dinner.

The restaurant is lovely. A perfect place for a special occasion. Service was great. Our party had the sea bass, which they loved, and NY strip. I gave it a 4, because 2 of the steaks came out cold, however they did take it back and warmed it up in the oven. I recommend the pineapple bread pudding for dessert.

This restaurant was expensive and the food was just average. The server was excellent and tried very hard to please. As someone who is used to great food for the money- this disappointed. Also the maitre D was snooty- you don't even get that attitude in Manhattan- there the front of the house is always gracious. On a positive note-... More

We’re sorry that you were tired after a long trip and even though you had arrived you were not willing to make your previously established 6:00pm dinner reservation on time. The View is the #1 rated restaurant in the area and tends to book well in advance so it is difficult for us to alter reservation times without any advance... More
