The Mirror Lake Inn is one of our favorite hotels, and The View is consistently a great place to have dinner overlooking Lake Placid's Mirror Lake. This time the Himalayan Red Rice Risotto was the stuff of dreams with chestnuts, goat cheese, swiss chard and all kinds of yummy stuff! The service is always attentive and pleasant. Even if you don't stay at the MLI, have dinner here.

Romantic Evening in a b
The food was superb and the ambiance was wonderful. No cell phones are allowed and so it makes for a lovely, intimate, peaceful experience. I had forgotten how civilized the world used to be. The wait staff was polite and knowledgeable. Outstanding!!

I love Lake Placid, NY and I love the Mirror Lake Inn. The View is a great place to eat. The food, the ambience and service is outstanding. Pricey, but definitely worth the money. A real treat..

The View/Mirror Lake Inn - Fabulous
We stayed at the Mirror Lake Inn for the weekend. Had dinner at The View Restaurant on Saturday night. Outstanding service! And our dinners were delicious and amazing. Without a doubt will be going back. I have never had such great service at a restaurant as you do at Mirror Lake Inn. Impeccable wait staff.

This restaurant is somewhat expensive but is worth every penny. The food was, well the best that I have had in the northeast in some many years. The view was very nice, the service excellent and the atmospher was very relaxing and quiet. I have already reccommended this restaurant to others and cannot wait to go back with my wife for a romantic dinner. Thank You. Bob D

Was there for a nice weekend of relaxation and pampering only to be spoiled even further by the food. The servers were knowledgable and accommodating and the kitchen was readily able to alter the menu for allergies or intolerance. Most item are gluten free so choice is available. When we arrived we were pleasantly greeted and immediately sat. Highly recommend

The View at Mirror Lake Inn
Excellent service, cuisine. Waitstaff was helpful with wine selection, but not expert.

We were celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary. The view from the restaurant is wonderful. At the end of our meal our waiter took a photograph of us and presented the picture to us in a frame with "Mirror Lake Inn" inscribed on it. It was overall a very nice dining experience.

Our server was a bit distracted with another table, but we were very happy. It was our anniversary and although we did not order dessert, we were brought a beautiful plate of chocolates with happy anniversary on the plate! It was a beautiful evening!

The View is a treasure. I took my husband for Father's Day. He absolutely loved the experience and is already planning a trip back!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Husband and I had a very nice dinner here. I had a special feature dish which was roasted chicken with Swiss chard, bacon and figs. Sounds odd but it was really delicious . Husband's halibut was fine. Our server was a little flakey, but it didn't spoil our experience.

We had dinner twice in a row at this restaurant and everything was perfect.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding service, food was well-prepared and to order, wine list was very good. Our only blip was a long-ish wait between courses due to a mishap in the kitchen; but, as our waiter suggested it might be, our entrees were well worth the wait!

Mirror Lake Inn - the View
We had a wonderful dinner at the beautiful View restaurant. Seriously fine food, polished yet friendly service, lovely view of Mirror Lake. Would go back there in a minute! We had indicated it was a special occasion (anniversary) and they went out of their way to make it special indeed.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb suggestions regarding wine from a seasoned server -- who spoiled us with small extras that went a long way to making our evening exceptional. Elegant service, soft lighting and an absence of cell phones made every delicious bite a dream. Wouldn't it be lovely to dine like this more often -- no children, bored teens or Ugly Americans made it all a Night to Remember.

This was one of the best dinners
This was one of the best dinners we've had, and my steak was better than any in the best steak houses in Dallas! Service was wonderful, and the view of Mirror Lake was beautiful.

From the beautiful view, to the wonderul service to the outstanding food. Everything was perfect! It is a must try and ask for Pierre, he was wonderful! We will definitely go back!

A meal that I had three days ago and I still can't stop talking about how good it was.

Not the best - except the service
We were really looking forward to our dinner at "The View". I had the cod wrapped in prosciutto. My husband had the lamb. He said the lamb wasn't bad but certainly not the best he ever had. My cod was kind of bland. The waitress said it was very popular. I didn't say anything to her about not particularly enjoying it because she was so awesome. He name was Cassandra and if you have a sense of humor you will love her understated banter ( of course my husband was egging her on so she might not be this way with everyone). Plus her service was impeccable.
We got there about 1/2 hour before sunset and the "View" was absolutely lovely. So glad we didn't have a later reservation time or we would have missed the beauty of the lake as the sun set.

One of the greatest meals I've had.
Absolute perfection from the wait staff to the wine list to the crab cakes to the filet. I could not ask for more. Fantastic restaurant and a great view. Almost perfect!

We found a true gem!
Our evening at the view could not have been better in any way! From the minute we sat down I knew it was going to be an evening to remember. The level of service and attention from the staff was unsurpassable. The wine recommended was top notch. Every dish was thoughtfully prepared and well received. Pierre was aN absolute pleasure and we appreciated his kindness. We will definitely return!

Wonderful food; good service; beautiful location and ambiance. Went there for an anniversary dinner and we were treated special. Reasonable prices for such good quality service and food. Would highly recommend to others.

We had friends from out of town here for a special occasion, so we wanted something commensurate. The setting is very nice and from what we saw all tables had a view of the lake, very nice. The food was well above most restaurants in the area, but not outstanding; however, the service was the best we've had in the north country. We would highly recommend the restaurant. Since our friends ordered the wine, we can't comment on the wine list.

Great Thanksgiving Buffet :-)
As always the ambiance was perfect for the two of us to enjoy a very special thanksgiving dinner together. We arrived early so we talked in front of the fireplace. Food was terrific, and the service was great, even though it was a buffet. Selection of foods was excellent, not overwhelming, but all the things you would expect at Thanksgiving. We'll definitely be back.
