The View Restaurant at the Mirror Lake Inn Ratings and Reviews
We had dinner at The View to celebrate our recent marriage days ago. The View exceeded all of our expectations! The food was simply amazing and the setting was beautiful. The service was top notch and the staff really did go the extra mile to make our experience special. We will certainly be coming back next year!
The View was simply amazing! It was one of the top five meals that I have ever had and I have traveled quite a bit - very impressive restaurant! They got it all right.....beautiful setting, excellent service and fresh, local, creative cuisine (and they could accommodate gluten free needs). The lamb entree was honestly the best lamb dish I have ever had and I order it frequently. It is an expensive meal but I think of it like a night a entertainment......well worth it!
This is a lovely restaurant with an incredible view; we were there for sunset, and the change of light was so relaxing. The service is impeccable, and the food was excellent - with the exception of one of our desserts, strawberries with ice cream, whipped cream, olive oil cake, and balsamic. The vinegar was over powering; perhaps if they used chocolate balsamic it would work. Otherwise, my steak was a perfectly cooked piece of prime meat, and the vegetable medley was probably the best I've ever had in a restaurant .My friend had a marvelous crab cake - very little filler and large pieces of crab . The seating areas are well-spaced creating a feeling of privacy. Overall, we rated it on par with Wheatly (in Lenox,MA) and the former L'Espinasse at the St. Regis (NYC). That is to say that this restaurant is well-worth the trip. Not only are you served an amuse bouche, you will also receive a palette cleanser, homemade passion fruit sorbet. They still have REAL candles on the table - very romantic ambiance and setting overlooking Mirror Lake.
The restaurant is beautiful. The view is priceless. But the most important feature of this place is the service. You will not lack anything. Our waitress Mariah and all the other serves pay close attention to detail... you never lack a full glass of water and they constantly check on you to see if you need anything else. The food is delicious. The menu has a good variety. The appetizer crab cake and the fried calamari was really good. The salad choice we had was very tasty. The duck special was really good and so was the lamb that my daughter ordered. The wine list is awesome and so are the cocktail menu. Highly recommend when visiting Lake Placid.
This was the second time that my wife and I held our anniversary celebration at the View and we were more than satisfied. The food was excellent and the chef went out of his way to make our evening one we will long remember. All of the staff were friendly and very helpful. Our waitress was excellent. She did not hover but was attentive to our needs. We just can't say enough about how well treated we were. Thanks to everyone at The View.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at The View and it could not have been a more perfect evening. Service was impeccable and each course of our meal was wonderful. There was honestly not a thing I would change. When our desert came out they spelled out "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate. A wonderful way to end our night. We could not have left more satisfied!
Both me and my girlfriend had incredible Mothers Day Brunch today the food was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable . Our table overlooked Mirror Lake and the scenery was breathtaking . We will be returning again . Best restaurant in the area by far .
The service and attention to detail were outstanding. The food was very creative and delicious. My salmon was PERFECTLY prepared, which is hard to find. My wife had the pork tenderloin - again, very well prepared. You know great care was taken for the whole dining experience. The prices were what we expected to pay and we will continue to support The View.
We came for the view & were disappointed in the food.
The view was nice as is the vast restaurant.
2of the 4 appetizers were ok. Foie gras mousse WAY over salted & the romain heart salad had way to mush lemon rather that caesar dressing. The onion soup on the other hand was one of the best along with the apple & rutabaga soup.
The chicken with truffle & foie gras stuffing was just a roasted chicken, NO foie gras & the mildest of any truffle taste. The prime beef fillet, which was a very small filet mignon was ok with a nice medley of veggies. The roasted duck breast was very good but the gnocchi did not wow any of us.
Overall a pleasant expensive experience with LOTS of room for
Our food was excellent. We both loved it. One of the best meals I've had. Service was excellent, & we got some wonderful tastings from the chef! It was a bit pricey, though. I might save it more for special occasions in the future. My husband said he was hungry by bedtime, but I loved it! Thanks so much!
We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary . Everything was wonderful from the staff to the food and ambiance as well as the special touch for our dessert. We had a very enjoyable romantic evening. We would recommend The View to anyone planning a trip to the Lake Placid area.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience and fabulous evening meal at The View at Mirror Lake Inn. Great location! Service was fantastic, and the waitstaff and sommelier were attentive and made excellent recommendations. The food was presented in a lovely manner and was delicious. I will definitely return on our next trip to Lake Placid.
Staying in Lake Placid for a few days, not knowing that we would get 40"of snow on our second day and have to stay put (ever so beautiful) for a couple of days, so it was LOVELY to finally get out and about to The View;such a treat! A good selection and preparation of some special dishes; a superb wine list ( a REALLY nice selection of some half bottles) and service of the highest quality; looking forward to returning to Lake Placid AND The View .....sooner than later!!
A diamond in Lake Placid! We were there recently to celebrate my husband's birthday and the experience was sublime. The Bar is a lively, cozy and fun place to hang out, make new friends and hear great live music. The dining room is adjacent and very nicely appointed (great view and also a fireplace!) Service and food were EXCELLENT! Would certainly recommend to others and hope to dine here again soon!
It was my 70th birthday and my daughter treated me to an overnight. The massage was a surprise and so well worth the money. The ambiance was terrific, along with the view. The room was cozy and roomy. The location is perfect for all seasons and lots to entertain families. I will definitely be back..
