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.

Kind of stuffy and old fashioned. Menu a bit boring. Service and wine outstanding

What a treat! 4 diamond service and lovely atmosphere makes this restaurant a standout. The food was exquisite and we can't wait to enjoy it again when we are in Lake Placid.

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.
