Went for a girls night out to celebrate our birthdays ... everything was phenomenal!! From the holiday decorations, the fresh snow, the general decor, the service, the food....our server Katie was so attentive, helpful and lovely to converse with. The food was to die for. Everything tasted amazing and was cooked to perfection! We ended with three desserts to share, all decorated with Happy Birthday messages and we were each given a souvenir picture of the three of us in a little frame to take home. Would definitely go back to this restaurant. We also sat at the bar at Taste Bistro before dinner and the service there was excellent as well. Definitely recommend both places.

This restaurant had an amazing view and great service but the food was not worth the value. I had the Vegetable Gnocchi which was pesto gnocchi served with steamed vegetables. I was very disappointed at the main entree options and expected more for the price of each dish.

We have been there annually for several years..usually food is very good..was disappointed with choices and found it was quite pricey for quality and quantity..ordered a cappuccino that was warm coffee with milk
The bistro was very good as always..we will return to Mirror Lake Inn hopefully next year..looking forward to a different dining experience at The View

Service was exceptional, and the appetizers and dessert were also fantastic. We weren't really blown away with our entrees. They were not bad but weren't anything special. We had eaten at Interlaken Inn the night before and thought the food there was AMAZING! SO pretty much were a little disappointed when the food at the highly rated view restaurant wasn't as good as our dinner the night before!

Incredible view and food. Limited menu and $90-$100 per person is standard. But the food is great and presentation neat. Wait staff want you to enjoy and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. Couldn’t eat here every week but for special trips nothing is finer in Lake Placid.

The View is, no holds barred, one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We were warmly received, introduced to our wait staff, having been lead to our table. The dining area is enchanting with beautiful, crisp, clean settings throughout and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and Mirror Lake. Our waiter was informative, upbeat and attentive but never intrusive. Our sommelier, Justin, did more than just purvey some great choices to match our courses, but was an informative and enjoyable guide throughout our dinner. The menu is broken down into three courses, not including desert and there was a very good variety in each, some of which highlighted local fare, and were so denoted. Many items , such as Romaine Hearts (Caesar Salad) and Maine Lobster (half lobster tail with side of knuckle meat salad) that were lovely re-imaginings of classic riffs, taken to new levels. Everything was luxurious but nothing was heavy. Some of the entrees, such as the lamb cheeks, were new to me and beautifully balanced in terms of the saucing and sides. All in all a truly wonderful experience that we cannot recommend highly enough.

Lovely setting. Excellent service. Gluten free options with no compromise to chef creations. Delicious courses. Potato leek soup gorgeous. Smoked trout excellent. Quail was exceptional. Salmon wasn't special and not quit fresh enough. Lovely fresh vegetables. Average wines with very expensive prices- but still paired sufficiently with meal. Was a lovely experience.

Incredible! I've eaten at all of the major 5 star Steak Houses and this was one of the best steaks I've ever had! I could have licked the pinot noir reduction sauce off the plate it was so good.

The restaurant was great. The service, the view and the atmosphere were perfect for our anniversary dinner. Little extra touches like a special dessert and a framed picture that the waiter gave us made everything more special. Food presentation and taste were glorious.

We booked this restaurant hoping to give our friend something special. We were beyond thrilled with the experience we had. The menu had varied case for all the pallets. Ingredients were fresh and presented in a very appetizing way. The atmosphere was spectacular. Of the listed is somewhat expensive we found it reasonable for $300 before people with drinks and appetizers and dessert. Highly recommended. Looking for that special meal especially occasion for a nice date!

My wife and I celebrated our 49th Wedding Anniversary at The View. We went, knowing it was going to be pricey, and that it is. We both ordered the Atlantic Cod, and were totally delighted. It was fresh and flakey, the way we like it. The combination of flavors were delicious. Probably the best I've had. We split a salad, which was also very good. They had a few nice touches, which we did ask for, such as; a "happy anniversary plate" with candy, and also a complimentary picture put in a frame. Nice. Mariah, our waitress, was so delightful, helpful and friendly. Our experience, on the whole, was memorable. The only caveat, of course was the exorbitant prices, which caused me to rate the restaurant less than a five star. But, if you don't mind paying, for instance, $17 for a unremarkable salad, go for it. The place is a visual delight.

The View Restaurant is outstanding. If you are visiting Lake Placid and looking for a fantastic dining experience look no further. The service, food and ambiance is nothing short of first class. Most of the menu options take advantage of local source ingredients which provide wonderful flavors in each course of your meal. The service is wonderful and allows you to relax and enjoy the food and the view of Mirror Lake.
