The View Restaurant at the Mirror Lake Inn
It was my 60th Birthday!
The food and service were outstanding. The sommelier’s wine suggestion was fabulous. We were not rushed and were able to have a lovely evening enjoying great conversation while indulging in a truly memorable meal.
Excellent restaurant. Food was excellent, and the service was top notch. Had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant very much. Prices were a little high, but not surprising considering the quality of the food , the premises and the overall experience.
Great food and atmosphere, should have two scallops instead of one on the first course for dinner.
The View is top notch in every way. Yes it is expensive but worth the money. It is truly a dining experience
Wonderful dining experience with a friend. Excellent service, very good food, pleasing atmosphere, pricey but to be expected. Food portions are small but substantive especially for and evening meal. Wine recommendations by waitress excellent. Nice follow up by staff after dinner with pertinent questions to address any concerns or complaints. The Mirror Lake Inn is truly a lovely place to stay. The staff throughout the complex are all eager to please and address any issues that may pop up in a most courteous and professional manner. The owners, management and general staff do an excellent job at providing a very friendly family like atmosphere. Thank you for another memorable stay.
Fantastic food, service, and ambiance. An enjoyable experience which I will be seeking again the next time I visit Lake Placid.
Always a treat to dine at The View. Exceptional service without being at all pretentious in a quiet, elegant setting. Fantastic food. We’re always impressed by the chef’s choices and how he or she combines flavors. My husband proposed there, and we have celebrated two anniversaries. The View always makes celebrations festive—we received a framed photo of the evening, as well as a special dessert.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and our server Katie B could not make it anymore special! The service was a 10/10 and the food was delicious. They even gave us a few complimentary items to try throughout our dinner and everything was fantastic. The atmosphere is very romantic and elegant and the view of the lake is incredible! They even took a photo of my boyfriend and I and made us the cutest souvenir. I would 100% recommend coming back!!
The service was excellent as well as the ambiance, the appetizers and soup were amazing, my prime beef filet was outstanding but my spouses pork and spaetzle was disappointing. The staff is friendly and could not do enough for you. I would for sure go back.
They remembered about my girlfriends dairy allergy
We got there early and did have to wait but the hotel has many parlors and a nice bar so the wait was pleasant.
We had a lovely Christmas dinner at The View. After spending 3 nights in Lake Placid, dining at some of the fanciest places there, The View had the perfect combination of excellent food, gracious staff and cozy, Christmas-y ambience.
We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with our two adult children. Everyone loved the restaurant - the food, service and setting were all perfect. It is going to be our "very special place" to celebrate events in our lives.
Very nice in all respects. Lovely inn. Good food.
Experience was phenomenal. The truffle risotto was one of the best dishes I have ever had. We celebrated our first anniversary and Caleb and the staff were extraordinary. We will plan to make it a yearly tradition.
The service, food and wine selection were all top-notch.
Everything was wonderful. Food and service was fantastic and the employees were very friendly. Noise level was a bit high due to disruptive nearby tables, but otherwise a perfect experience.
The ambience of old world charm confronts you as you enter the restaurant. While everyone greets you with a smile, you are seated with a view of Mirror Lake. The wine list seems extensive and our bottle was served with cheerful professionalism. The food from beginning to end was exceptionally creative and mouth-watering. We loved every bite. The staff made us feel welcomed and special. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting the Lake Placid area. We will certainly be returning on our next visit.
Wonderful ambiance. Very good service. Fabulous views of the Lake we returned for breakfast the next morning. Also excellent service and delicious meals.
Food and atmosphere great. Serving staff very helpful and attentive to your needs.
Fantastic meal. Best dining venue in Lake Placid.
Good food, great view, very over priced!
We had not been to Lake Placid in over 20 years and looked forward to dining at Mirror Lake Inn, where we had stayed during previous visits. The View did not disappoint! It was as we remembered it. Our server, Autumn, was excellent - professional and friendly, efficient yet not hovering. It is an expensive restaurant but worth it as a treat. Excellent presentation and taste. We won’t wait 20 years this time to return!
We were served pork chops that were tough to cut and tough to chew. We probably should have sent them back. There were two servers with no attendants to assist them , for maybe 8 or 9 tables, so we did not see much of our server.
My wife and I loved the place. Amazing food and very special service. I really appreciate the extra for our Anniversary. The people couldn't be nicer. I recommend The View highly one of the best restaurant I have ever eaten at.
Amazing food and the service was impeccable. Hannah was our server and was absolutely amazing! We were celebrating our honeymoon and they gave us a table with a view, made us feel as if we were the only table there and surprised us with a printed photo of us with our dessert. Incredible evening!
If you want to spend a lot of money, this is the place. Also, my husband asked for more salad dressing and the server brought back a very small portion. He asked for more and the server said the chef would not give him more.
We brought two guests with us and we paid their bill because we knew the prices were more than the could afford.
The whole hotel was overpriced.
Sehr gutes Essen! Wir sind extra von Saranac Lake nach Lake Placid zum Dinner gefahren. Sehr schwierige Fahrt im Dunkeln (so dunkel l!), aber es hat sich absolutely gelohnt!
Best meal we had in Lake Placid! The lamb loin and halibut were both well presented and delicious; really special. The dining room is lovely overlooking Mirror Lake. Loved the amuse bouchée, sorbet served between courses and second dessert that was included with the meal...haven’t seen that in a long time; shows you they are paying attention to details and making the meal exceptional.
Lovely view, romantic, fire burning in adjoining room, good food.
Need I say more?
Truly a place for foodies! The food was impeccably presented and the taste was amazing! I had the pork medallions which were so tender and delicious. My husband had the prime beef fillet which he raved about ! Our server was very attentive and engaging .Thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will return, its just that great!!!
Boyan was absolutely terrific...Can't say enough......It was our 40th anniversary and We were treated like it was our first anniversary there, 40 years ago.
We appreciated the Young Lady coming over to chat and telling us where She has lived, then came full circle and decided to live back in Lake Placid......We'll be back next year...
Very great experience. A little pricey, but still a wonderful experience.
Superb restaurant!! Very impressed with the food quality and presentation. Service was excellent. Beautiful views of the lake. Parking was not the easiest, but it was very busy in Lake Placid for the Ironman 70.3 race. Intermezzo was a nice surprise. Passion fruit sorbet was amazing. I would gladly return here next time in Lake Placid.
Smoked trout appetizer - excellent. Halibut cheeks for dinner - okay. Have had in Alaska as well and does not compare. Was a bit "stringy". Not nearly as soft and buttery as I'm accustomed. Blood orange vanilla creme brulee was a bit watery, not the right custard consistency though taste was great. Wine was excellent and the selection was perfect though quite pricey. Normal wine markup around 3x was far exceeded here.
Hannah was our server and she was excellent.
Overall great restaurant! Food was amazing, there was live music which was great, we sat near the window so we had a nice view of the lake! Definitely recommend and it was a very romantic place!
The menu was basic. Nothing extraordinary and very expensive.
Considering the name The View. It was not good view at all. Service was ok but not very informed
