The View Restaurant at the Mirror Lake Inn Ratings and Reviews
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..
I would highly recommend The View to anyone visiting the Lake Placid area. My husband and I could not have enjoyed our evening more. Everything was absolutely perfect from beginning to end...the food, the service, the cocktails, the ambiance, etc. We enjoy fine dining frequently and both agreed that we can't recall ever having such a wonderful experience. It was the perfect way to end our vacation!
Upon our arrival my wife and I were greeted very warmly by the staff,they had taken note of our special request ( our honeymoon ). Sarah our waitress was exceptional, knowledgeable and very courteous. We were given IMHO the best seat in the house and the food certainly did not disappoint. All in all a great first time experience, we will certainly return to The View in the near future. We would recommend this restaurant experience as one of the highlights of our trip.
We had a wonderful dinner here. My fianceé took me her as a celebration for my birthday. We shared the foie gras appetizer, wonderful. She had the Duck special and I had the Fish special. Both were amazing. For dessert , Pumpkin Cheesecake and Espresso. Of course a good bottle of wine with dinner.
We both raved about our dinners at the View. Megan, our server, was the only server we have ever had who greeted us by our names! It made us feel at home. The surprise courses were most enjoyable. My husband's duck and my scallops were delicious. The Chai creme brûlée was lovely. Kudos to the chef and everyone we met at the Inn. Also the grounds with the lights were beautiful.
Fantastic food, fantastic service, but not worth the price. We stayed at the Mirror Lake Inn for my fiancee's 30th birthday and upon arrival there had been a chimney fire in the left lobby. This set the tone for the rest of our stay at the Inn, as the fire was barely addressed upon check-in and we were not proactively accommodated after checking in. This impacted our time at the restaurants, as the back doors to the restaurant were open throughout the entire dining experience, with guests of all ages passing through the middle of the restaurant consistently. All in all, The View and the Mirror Lake Inn did not meet the expectations we had of a four diamond hotel/restaurant, especially after numerous recommendations from trusted, long-time friends/patrons on the Inn.
We were staying in Lake Placid over a holiday break between Christmas and New Year's for a 4-day ski vacation. On our last night we ate at The View - as a special pre-New Year's celebration. The restaurant is elegant, the staff incredibly courteous and professional, and the view is exquisite. The food was excellent (the filet mignon med/rare melted in your mouth), and the wine list was decent. But it's rather pricey for the fare. We had a reservation for 8:30 and I called to see about changing to an earlier time. Not only was the hostess very accommodating, but we got a table overlooking the lake. If you're looking for ambiance and and elegant dining, here's the place.
We went here as a special treat while staying in lake placid. It was worth it! The special little surprises through out the course great. Was very much fine dining without the stabbing cost of fine dinning. Don't get me wrong, it is not an cheap meal, but the food was of the highest quality and the service made it that much more enjoyable. We went for an early dinner (6 pm) and were one of very few dinners at the time, however closer to 7 the dining room filled up. While technically not water front, it does offer some great views of mirror lake from its large windows. Highly recommend trying this restaurant if you are in the mood for an it if pampering and looking for wonderfully platted and tasting dishes. I also can't say enough of the staff who made sure our dining experience was one to remember. One more fun thing, they had a pianist playing through out the dinner. Very relaxing and elegant.
We have stayed at the Mirror Lake inn numerous times and always look forward to a return. We love the view restaurant - everything about the place: the ambiance (fire place), service, food, decor, noise level (quiet), large windows that allow such a pretty view no matter the time of year, and the overall feeling we have when we dine there is just incredible and I pray that for years to come we are lucky enough to continue and visit the area, and the fabulous Mirror lake inn and it's view restaurant.
We were awestruck by the Christmas decor throughout the lobby and dining rooms! Service was attentive and professional (and friendly!) Entrees (scallops and halibut) were beautifully presented with wonderfully seasoned vegetables.Impressive wine list with some reasonably priced Italians from the north and south.All in all a perfect dining experience and a good value for the considerable expense.We can't wait to return!
