The View Restaurant at the Mirror Lake Inn
Beautiful view of the lake. Service could not be better. The food is very good. My only gripe was that the desert was overly sweet.
Lovely walk around Mirror Lake then yummy brunch.
Great view of the lake from our table.
Service was amazing, it was peaceful environment, it was kinda pricy so could only dine once in a "blue moon " but worth it
Exceptional in all respects! The setting, ambiance, the bar, the service (Thank you Caleb!) and the food were all just exceptional. We'll be back in the fall and are looking forward to it.
End of tax season
Great meal! Fantastic server. Thanks Ryan!
Wonderful food, service and environment. The server was knowledgeable and very friendly.
The entire dining experience was absolutely amazing. Service was exceptional. Our waiter, Ryan, was friendly, polite, and very well versed on the menu and food ingredients. The presentation and quality of the food was impeccable. This was our third visit to the Mirror Lake Inn and The View and definitely not our last.
Amazing dinner, service, and view. Diversity of flavors in each dish create a pleasant exploration making each bite unique to be savored. Of special note is the salted trout, scallops were perfection, and lambs cheeks. Rarely find this level of attention to detail other than in Chef owned restaurants. Our server, Ben was very attentive and knowledgeable. However, needs to remember to serve from opposite side rather than between when a couple is having a conversation. It's a little abrupt and just a pet peeve of mine. Beautiful culinary experience for the most discerning and a jem of the Lake Placid area. However, not crazy about $30 to valet a car.
50th Birthday dinner.
Thank you for making our special occasion perfect
Wonderful dining experience for our Anniversary. Dessert was decorated with happy Anniversary and they took a picture of us and framed it. Highly recommend
Great meals and great service..had dinner one night on the porch..wonderful ambiance and perfect atmosphere for dinner with friends..we have been going to Mirror Lake every year for many years..never disappointed
Excellent experience, the best in Lake Placid
I ate in 2 other highend restaurant in town during my recent trip
I've dined here twice- the first time was perfection - an anniversary celebration - the food, service, attention to detail from wine pairings to delicious food made for a spectacular night. The 2nd time the food and service were still excellent. My only complaint was that the meal felt a little rushed. I like a slower pace, I ordered 3 courses all from starter menu - they came out quite quickly one after the other. For fine dining with a big price tag- I feel there should be a slight pause between courses. That is just my personal preference. It did not ruin my evening - and service and food did not dissappoint. In fairness we were 15 minutes late for our reservation. Not sure if that had an effect on the kitchen.
We went for my birthday dinner. Service was impeccable-I appreciate when servers serve from the left, clear from the right! The food was excellent, I had the apple butternut squash soup and the fillet which was cooked perfectly. Would highly recommend.
Very nice special occasssion restaurant with beautiful views of Mirror Lake. A bit on the quiet side - great if you like that. Live music next door in the bar. Definitely recommend.
Wonderful food and ambiance.
Outstanding. Ben (our waiter) did a great job. Food was superb. Service was outstanding. Ambience was perfect.
Food, service & View were all outstanding.  different entrées at our table....all were top notch. Best by far in town
Amazing every time I go
It was our wedding anniversary. Ben our waiter was wonderful. He made the occasion even more special with his thoughtful touches. The view is amazing and the food was Devine.
From beginning to end, this is one of the most delicious and well-crafted meals you can have anywhere, not just in li'l ole Lake Placid. I live in the same town as the Culinary Institute of America and I've never had anything there that tops the food here. Gracious service, too. It was my friend's birthday and they not only wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate on his dessert plate, but they also took a picture of us and put it in a decorative cardboard frame for us.
We stayed at the Mirror Lake Inn and went to the View restaurant our first night to celebrate our 30th anniversary. It was a lovely choice. Our server, Moriah, was excellent - prompt, cheerful, knowledgeable - adding the right touch to our evening. The food and wine was excellent. I'm a very picky eater and everything I had was amazing!
Moriah even took a picture for us and gave us a copy before our dinner was over - very special touch! Also, we appreciated the no cell phone "rule", which made us get off the grid and really relax.
Highly recommend the View for your next visit to Lake Placid.

I booked this restaurant without knowing much. What a wonderful night we had! It can be a bit pricy however the meal, wine, service, scenic view from window were just priceless. My husband had full course with wine freight which I regret not doing that! Instead I had appetizer and main dish (lamb cheek - what a bite!) with manhattan and a glass of cab. Manhattan was a very strong so I saved for as a desert drink. My husband was so happy of wine choice was made by Sommelier. Our teen daughter loved her duck dish. We are ready to go back again from New England. Hopefully next summer!
My wife and I enjoyed an excellent anniversary dinner here at the View. The service and the food were exceptional
It really was great, really. I cannot complain about anything EXCEPT ... it’s a bit too pricey for what it is... $50 for a fillet the size of a toddler’s fist? Come on... I know it’s a beautiful, historic place but... probably the reason we were one of the only families there.
Tres bien et amical
Cher mais recommander
Food and service are outstanding. A little pricey, but worth it.
Excellent food and service! Great kids menu! It was a wonderful first experience for my 9 year old "fancy dining." Server was extremely knowledgeable. Quiet ambiance and beautiful view of the lake! Exquisite wine list!
An amazing experience!!!! From the Anuse bouche to the intermezzo palate cleanser of a passion fruit sorbet, the total experience was magical!!!
Truly a foodies’ dream come true
Awesome across the board
We chose The View for our special dinner during our mini honeymoon last year after getting married. We were very pleased with the entire experience. This year, we returned to celebrate our 1-year anniversary. Again, we had an amazing experience! The food is exceptional and the service is great! We were also impressed with how competitive the prices were to restaurants from our area that do not carry a 4 Diamond rating.
It was an outstanding experience from start to finish. They even brought a special dessert plate for our anniversary and took, printed and framed a complimentary picture for us to commemorate the evening.
Service was very good, waitress was attentive and well trained. The food was excellent with interesting combinations. Good selection of high end liquor. Wines by the glass were juts okay. Would definitely go again. Went to their other restaurant, Taste Bistro for a burger, which was also excellent.
We had another wonderful meal at The View. The food is so much better than it used to be. Jason is extremely knowledgeable on wine and is a pleasure to talk to when selecting wine to pair with your meal. They have music and the service is terrific.
Our waitress Celine was great and the food was excellent!
Fabulous meal but would expect nothing less from a fine dining restaurant
Nice dinner, wine flights are exceptional. Good service and nice ambience.Food was not ambitious, but nicely prepared.
Un repas succulent, une ambiance chaleureuse, une vue magnifique. Trois ingrédients qui ont fait de notre soirée un succès sur toute la ligne.
Il faut bien entendu s’attendre à débourser quelques dollars...
