My wife and I celebrated our 20th 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 dessert came they spelled out "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate. A wonderful way to end our night. We... More

Ourthree little ones loved making their own sundaes at the end. Thank you for being a top world class destination that the locals can come and enjoy as well.... More

Beautiful view over Mirror Lake, beautiful building and wonderful food. I had a ribeye that was unbelievable and my wife had salmon which was equal. The desserts were scrumptious. A little pricey but worth it in my opinion.

The service was good and the wine list extensive including Grange hermitage at bottle shop prices. If you find yourself in this part of the world... More
