I give this restaurant 5 stars for the food and 3 stars for the wine service. Let me explain. The food is excellent. From the foie gras, through the braised pork cheeks to the maple walnut ice cream, the food was consistently great.

The food is very good and the view is amazing. Make sure you get reservations because they ONLY take reservations. No walk ins. You can go to the pub next door but it's a different experience. If you want fine dining, this is one of the few places that has this experience.

A nice start to any morning in Lake Placid, the breakfast buffet at the View Restaurant at the Mirror Lake Inn is a delicious beginning with a beautiful view. Arrive early for the best seats. Plenty of choices, including fresh omelettes to give you energy for the 3 mile walk around Mirror Lake.
