I made reservations for my boyfriend's birthday dinner at the View restaurant and we had a very nice time. The restaurant has all the features one expects from fine dining - an extra-courteous staff, a knowledgeable & attentive server, and gourmet food PLUS a little birthday dessert plate with a candle on it, brought at the end of our meal. Food was very tasty - indeed, likely the best food we had in Lake Placid.
After dinner, save a drink for Taste Bistro & Bar (right outside the View restaurant), they have live music on certain days of the week (check their calendar).
Highly recommended.

My wife made reservations for us at this restaurant and I was honestly nervous about the experience. It seemed very stuff and pricey. I have to admit that I was really impressed with it.

The Amuse-bouche was really, really good. Server, while stiff, was very knowledgable and attentive. We sat outside in the screened in porch and had a nice view of the lake. Thought about going back for a second time here, but decided to try something different (mistake, turned out to be a big let down).

Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a nice and quiet dining experience in an amazing setting.

This lovely restaurant has fine food and an extensive wine list. My husband had the pork shank special. It was beautifully prepared and presented. I had the wild salmon special and the salmon was cooked perfectly. It was accompanied with baby vegetables that were delicious. This restaurant prides itself on using fine, locally produced ingredients and their care showed in every aspect of the meal. We had a charming waiter, Pierre, who also added to the pleasure of our dining experience

The salmon was cooked perfectly, but all of the garnishes (quinoa, bok choi) were bland, and my wife's artichoke and agnolotti main course was virtually flavorless. The chocolate torte and the chocolate truffles that followed were spectacular. Overall, not a good value for the price.

While we were staying at Mirror Lake Inn for our 46th anniversary, we had a wonderful dinner at The View. The manager was very welcoming and made us feel we were special from the moment we walked into the restaurant. Our server, Sarah, was very knowledgeable and friendly. The meal wasn't the least bit rushed (we arrived at 7 and left around 9), but it wasn't too slow either. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The manager returned to our table after our meal to take our picture to commemorate the occasion and returned with it a few minutes later. This was such a nice, personal touch.
Our dessert plate was decorated with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate.
This was a wonderful experience and the view overlooking Mirror Lake made the experience even better!
We came back the next morning for breakfast and loved it. Our waiter was Goran, a very personable and friendly young man. He wanted to make sure that everything was perfect. Another delicious meal, beautiful view, and excellent service!
