Attractive, modern space in the beautiful Hotel Saranac. The food was mostly very good with a couple of disappointments. The cornbread that appeared on our table was superior, the pear salad was large and delicious, the burger was described as "the best I've ever had", the chicken with polenta was tender and tasty. Unfortunately, the venison was a very small portion, and while it tasted good, was not worth the high price. The bread pudding was more like burned toast vs traditional bread puddings.
Service as efficient, but not particularly friendly.
It was a Thursday night, not very crowded. I would definitely go back and dine, probably at the bar.

Imagine my surprise when we were seated by a wall when there were several window tables available! I requested to sit by the window, but was told because I booked thru Open Table there were only certain tables available; the ones by the windows were not available for Open Table diners! I have never before been penalized this way for using Open Table to make reservations. Is this common practice?!

I usually don’t write bad reviews and usually have only good things to say. Unfortunately, this restaurant does not hit the mark. Aside from the friendly waiter the food quality did not meet expectations at all. Went as a party of 4. All meals had little to no flavor. Over priced for quality of food. Polenta came out cold, chicken was dry, the bolognese had no flavor. We had mentioned the cold polenta with no accommodations. We were originally going to get dessert but after the dinner quality we passed.

Really cool decor inside a historic hotel. Service was quick & friendly. Food was just meh - I had what they were calling a Spanish potato omelette, but it was really a frittata & it didn’t have much potatoes. Instead, it had a lot more of a sausage I didn’t care for. Hubby’s meal was good, hard to mess up bacon & eggs, but again side of potatoes was minuscule - like a scant 1/4 cup - which given the price, was unfortunate. Especially since we can’t eat the toast since we are gluten free.

Love the location and decor. We ordered cocktails that were ok. Wish the menu had a little more choice. Ordered the burger and fries were soggy and burger was way over salted. Waitress was hurried. The bright spot was the hostess who continued to check on us and was smiling. Cornbread was great.

The red snapper was absolutely amazing! Service was superior. Had to give it four stars instead of five because my wife was a little disappointed with the roasted chicken as it was a little dry and the noise level was slightly higher than we enjoy. Otherwise, we would highly recommend.

We are terribly sorry about the unsatisfactory experience you had while dining with us this past week. Please understand that the quality of the steak you received is far below our standards and unacceptable in our eyes. Thank you for readdressing the issue with your server so that management could properly compensate for the error. Hopefully we will see you again for a proper, locally sourced steak in the future.

We showed up for our reservation excited to return since we had such good food previously. We were seated promptly. The waitress was friendly and took our drink order. When we looked at the menu there were 6 options.
(Covid ) The waitress came over to take our order and let us know that 2/6 options were no longer available. We placed our order and then the waitress returns to notify us that there was one more option they were out of leaving a total of 3 things to choose from all being meat. To say that we were disappointed is an understatement the food was mediocre and not what we originally wanted so it made it feel worse. I would not recommend this restaurant nor will i return.

Service was good but they forgot my son’s iced tea. Food was underwhelming for an $18 burger with over cooked fries and an under cooked burger. Scallops were good but the price didn’t equate to the quantity received. Drinks were good. Atmosphere is excellent. We left hungry but my bill showed we should’ve ate like kings. They used to be better when their menu was bigger like 2 years ago. Waitress was nice enough to give us a discount on the over cooked fries. Fix your food and we’ll come back then.

We visited Campfire Adirondack Grill during our stay at the Hotel Saranac, Hilton. The restaurant is in the lower lobby area. This restaurant is a hidden gem. With the current limited staffing they have, the staff here were always active and on their game, never leaving us feeling untended to, as good as it was before the current labor shortages. We enjoyed a chili special, perfect and meaty, and a watermelon salad, crisp and refreshing. The next morning the pancake and eggs breakfast was perfectly done, light with a great local coffee blew. And finally, desert - chocolate cake - one evening, also very well done. The food is done with gourmet chef attention to detail and creativity. Seating unique and fun. The beer selection interesting and local (NY, VT, etc.).

The staff was amazing, the food was completely tasteless, excluding the Brie appetizer and the complimentary cornbread. The ingredients where good it just really seemed like the seasoning step of cooking was just skipped. The food was bland. Honestly a first and last for us.
