We stayed for two nights at Mirror lake Inn during a "Girls Getaway" weekend with eight sisters in attendance, many of whom were reconnecting for the first time in years. Our group was all women in their 50's and 60's. On our second night as part of our package, we had a fabulous dinner at The View restaurant. Service was impeccable (thanks to Toby's patience), food was delicious and even a special request for 4 of us who were celebrating our birthdays was met with "Happy Birthday" in chocolate written on the dessert plates when they arrived at the end of the meal. Our special weekend together was made more special by the picture taken at the table and presented to each of us in a souvenir folder.

Our meal as well as our waiter,Pierre were both excellent! We enjoyed our meal from start to finish, my filet was done to perfection, my husband opted for the vegetarian meal of fall vegetables and thoroughly enjoyed his choice

Very nice place, small but still very elegant. Service was fantastic, dining room very tasteful.

Not cheap, but certainly in line with what they were offering. Salads were great, seafood well prepared.

Definitely a good choice for a special occasion, or just to have some fun on your trip to Lake Placid!

There are so many positive things to be said about this restaurant so, I'll start there. The dining room is beautiful, the service was excellent, the Intermezzo was a nice touch as was the complimentary small plate of sweets at the end of our meal. However, when we spend this much money on a meal, I expect the food to be fabulous and not just good or OK. My husband had the Caesar salad which was good and we both had the rack of lamb. Our entrees were served with fingerling potatoes, baby carrots and turnips. Unfortunately, none of it was outstanding. It wasn't bad - just not what we would have anticipated in a restaurant such as this.

Thank you for being our guest in The View restaurant! We are glad that you felt there were many positives about your experience; ambiance, service, intermezzo and our homemade truffles.

The lamb feature the evening you dined was a naturally raised lamb from the nearby Plum Hill Farms. It was served with local Fingerling Potatoes, Candied Carrots, Butter Poached Turnips, Peas Shoots, Kohlrabi and Mustard Seed Lamb Jus. We received many positive comments about the lamb and we are sorry it did not meet your expectations

Since most people are delighted with our food, if you would have let us know that you were not completely satisfied we would have been able to correct the situation. In the future please bring it to our attention while you are here. We’re not in the business of selling beds, food or beverages, but in the business of creating memorable experiences.

We look forward to having you as our guest again. Please make your reservation directly through my Assistant, Bridget. Thank you again for being our guest!

Sincerely,
Ed Weibrecht

We had a very nice meal here. My wife and I got the Caesar Salad, and fois gras for an appetizer. I had the NY Strip and my wife had the scallops. Everything was very good. If I had to criticize anything, it would be that I wish the wine had been decanted before pouring as there was some sediment... but this is a first world problem, rather than a serious flaw. We would go back, for sure!
