A word from Artisans at the Lake Placid Lodge
*The Lake Placid Lodge and Artisans restaurant are currently closed for spring cleaning. We look forward to seeing you again in May!


Artisans is an intimate, warm and cozy fire-lit restaurant that extends out to the Lodge’s wide covered porches in fine weather. The high windows and grand porches seem to seat the diner almost upon the lake. The dedicated culinary team offers a full menu based on farm to table cuisine. The cuisine is seasonally inspired and New American in tradition, but voyages wonderfully and mysteriously into the world beyond. The Lodge has an exceptional wine collection that ranges from the modest to the illustrious and a magnificent and romantic dine-in wine cellar for special occasions.


Artisans is open to the public, and seating is limited, so reservations are highly recommended. Dining room service begins each evening at 6pm. Children over the age of twelve are welcome at the Lake Placid Lodge.

Diner Reviews
  • "We chose this place as a special night out during a recent vacation to the wonderful but often touristy Lake Placid Area. We appreciated that they welcome guests over the age of 12. My wife ordered a delicious salmon entree and I ordered veal which was cooked to perfection. For dessert I ordered a panna cotta and my wife got a chocolate tart. Both of which were excellent. Our server was very attentive but not suffocatingly so. They were especially understanding as (in the winter at night) this can be a little difficult to find. It is a great restaurant for a quiet ambiance where you can stay, enjoy your food and linger with your company. Definitely recommend especially to couples looking for a nice romantic evening out."

  • "In a word, Artisans is "delightful". With its perch overlooking Lake Placid's southwest shore, one might think the draw is sublime sunsets. Not to be outdone (and, since the sun must set) ... attention easily pivots to the other star at Artisans - its food. It is seasonal and impeccable... visually gorgeous compositions. Libations are superb, hand-crafted cocktails and an extensive, accessible wine list. Our most recent and winter visit to Artisans was a party of 7, that I admit with both delight and slight embarrassment, was over-indulged by talented chef and skilled staff. In summer, dining outdoors on the wraparound veranda with a smaller party is even nicer and more intimate. Artisans ... wonderful."

  • "We have eaten at numerous, high-quality establishments in Manhattan, I would judge this to be comparable. We loved the decor, the location was a walk from our cabin overlooking Lake Placid, which during the day is quite beautiful, and the food, along with the service was excellent. Although we are not oenophiles, we very much enjoyed the wines and drinks, and the selection is extensive. As a pleasant aside, children under 12 are not allowed."

  • "First time having a once in a lifetime experience of a four course meal. Everything was wonderful including the staff and service. For future guests, definitely make room for the complementary dishes. The website underestimates how fancy and great the place really is. I wasn't excepting a four course meal from the website. The nice thing about the menu is that it's ever changing so you don't have the same meal twice."

  • "The only thing this place has going for them is the view. Our waitress was friendly but quiet. She had no personality which made the little conversation we had to make with her awkward. We dined at Artisans on Valentines Day. There was a mediocre food selection at best. The food that we did choose was barely edible. The ambiance itself was stuffy. Unfriendly staff, dreary music and the most overpriced meal I've ever eaten. Would tell friends to stay far away from this place."

  • "the food was excellent, with really interesting and delicious choices that you would expect to find at a fine dining restaurant in NYC. but most impressive was the service. i indicated i was pregant and that i would like a chocolate-y mocktail, and they overheard me saying i liked smores and went out of their way to make me a smores mocktail which was awesome (even including a homemade toasted marshmallow from the pastry chef). even though i didnt ask specifically, they also went through all the items in the dishes we ordered to make sure they were pregancy friendly"

  • "We have a house in Saranac Lake since 2010 but this was our first experience at the Lake Placid Lodge. It is a great place ! The restaurant is beautiful, service both respectful and friendly, food is great. This is Best panna cotta we ever ate ! We will definitely be coming back."

  • "This is a beautiful resort, and the restaurants are equally as stunning. I think the menu was a bit ambitious for the Chef in residence, and the food did not meet my standards for a gastronomic eatery. We ate in a lovely small annex room with a fireplace, and it was so hot in there it was hard to enjoy the meal at all. The management was very apologetic, and moved us into the pub room for complimentary dessert, but they really need to figure out climate control."

  • "The dinner I enjoyed at Artisan's was probably one of the best meals I've ever had. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic dinner, the cuisine is over-the-top amazing, and the service friendly and non-intrusive. I would highly recommend Artisan's for a special occasion."

  • "Great restaurant, great food, 1st class service, nice ambiance -- with prices to match. Outstanding location on the shores of Lake Placid, comfortable room, and doting (most of the time) attention. Classic building with authentic Adirondacks feel. While we had a wonderful meal and dining experience, we wish we had eaten in the adjoining, far more informal (and lively), pub. We would have eaten and imbibed more there, absent $18 appetizers."

  • "I ordered the evening speciality - rack of lamb. It turned out to be especially bad. The waiter made a point of returning to ask how I wanted the lamb cooked having failed to ask when I ordered. Notwithstanding his apparent interest the lamb came well cooked although I had requested medium. It turned out not to matter as Instead of tender lamb I found myself with what chewed like day old mutton. I returned the meal to the kitchen and although the waiter enquired if I would like to order something else, no one other - not the chef, not a restaurant supervisor - came to the table to hear my complaint or try to resolve the cause of my unhappiness. This occurred at what is advertised as the best restaurant in Lake Placid. I will not return."

  • "This was our first visit to Artisans and it won't be the last. The crab stuffed squash blossoms were the best we ever had. Its a shame we can't enjoy them all year. The foie gras was smooth and creamy and the scallops with lobster risotto was cooked to perfection. Our waiter, Ray, was very helpful with our many questions. This was truly a remarkable dining experience."

  • "This restaurant is the real deal - a perfect evening from the best signature cocktails to the ambiance, views, soft blankets to keep you warm while dining at night on the veranda, friendly service, outstanding wine list, and oh, the best tasting menu since BlueHill. We wished for more of each course but were completely satisfied by dinner's end. The wine pairings were creative and delicious-a memorable NYS dry Reisling. Local artisan cheeses."
