This review is of the restaurant, not the hotel. We had read reviews of the Hungry Trout and were staying in the area, so we decided to try it. We almost did not get to try it. When we arrived, we waited over 15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged that we were there. And then the hostess just said that she would "be with us very soon". So we waited another 10 minutes until she was apparently ready to deal with us. In the meantime she disappeared a lot and still found time to make a few drinks at the bar. With a restaurant of this reputation, I would think that they would have a dedicated bartender and not have the hostess doing double duty. Because she does neither very well. Anyway, eventually we got seated and our server, Colleen, introduced herself to us. She was fantastic, as was the food we ordered. It was cooked to perfection (my wife had the brook trout almandine and I had the salmon and scallops). The food was wonderful and the service just as good. And happily so, because our treatment at the beginning could easily have ruined a nice evening. If you are staying in the Lake Placid area, you will want to try this restaurant...but be patient, because the hostess takes more than a little time to organize herself. This review is of the restaurant and not of the hotel.
