We ate here over the Holiday Break, made reservations, it was not that crowded. Food was very good I had the fried chicken dish it was excellent since I had steak the day before, other people in our party had the pasta which they said was very good. Service was good, a little pricey but worth it,

We decided to spend this special dinner at the Kanu restaurant and we thought it was going to be like 4 years ago when everything was perfect BUT the quality of the food was not the same. Overpriced, smaller portions, they ran out of the menu offered and the alternative were far from good. The hotel is amazing but we... More

We booked a dinner post Christmas at this beautiful resort-- full of Adirondack furnishings which were amazing. Arrived early to go to the bar to play "the game"; bartender Zak will ask you 4 questions about preferences, (sweet or savory, strong or light, etc.) then he will craft you a cocktail using no less than 8 ingredients-- no 2 are...

Lovely dinner by fireplace, beautifully decorated for Christmas. Added shrimp to my veggie risotto. They were gigantic and delicious! Wine by the glass was superb. Service impeccable. Sommelier poured our glasses personally. Ordered asparagus on the side. Perfectly prepared. Unfortunately too full for dessert. Everyone from valet to girls at check in very friendly. So happy I had the opportunity... More

The atmosphere makes it all, from the entrance to the dinning room. True Lodge decor, stunning. We made the reservation over the phone and I wish someone had told us that it was a fixed menu for Christmas night. It was very expensive for what we ate. The food was good but not exceptional. The Christmas tree is a must... More

We went on Christmas Eve to Kanu Restaurant in order to have the holiday breakfast buffet they have on their website (red velvet pancakes for example between many other things), however when we arrived to the restaurant to our surprise there was no "special" breakfast menu, it was just regular breakfast. We ask the staff for the holiday menu which... More

Place is nicely decorated for holidays. Food is great, good choices, desserts are exquisite, service is slow but friendly. There are several rooms. Some are for more intimate dining, some rooms are good for bigger groups of people. We definitely will be there again.

We sat in front of a beautiful roaring fireplace. There was a great selection of wines and food. I had the wild mushroom risotto (perfect) and my husband had the steak. Very tender, tasty and cooked to perfection. If you go at Christmas they have a 32 foot tree!!
