exellent dining experience

If you are looking to dine, not just eat, this is the place. They sere a limited number of guests each night so the service is impeccable, the food is great. The best cherries jubilee I've every had.

The She Crab was the best I have had! Had some really unique flavors that resulted in an amazing taste. "Mmmm with every spoonful". Our waiter, Bobby was very attentive and knowledgeable. Bananas Foster was delicious! Chris made it. Always fun to watch. A touch of lemon and orange gave it a nice enhancement. Served with a scope of vanilla... More

I ate here after a long time between visits. As expected, The Library never fails to meet the 'gold standard' in restaurants. For the appetizer, I had the escargot which was done to perfection. The escargot were not over done. They were not "chewy" as some restaurants often prepare them (which means they were overcooked). Rather these were soft to... More

We had heard about it but it just did not live up to its reputation. Harry had steak; it was chewy. He was very ill a few hours later. I had salmon; it was good. Next day on Christmas Day, I got sick too. Of the vegetables du jour (three) the carrots were barely cooked. The wine picked by the... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your review! It is unfortunate that you did not share the same wonderful experience so many of our guests have. I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the way we prepare our vegetables, which is Al Dente, meaning they should have a little "crispness" to them. I can assure you... More

Very Quaint, intimate atmosphere with table side preparation. Awesome cocktails and flavorful entrees. Perfect for couples and adults seeking a dining experience not just a meal. My husband had Filet and Lobster and I choose the Salmon special of the night. Both were excellent. Dessert was Death by Chocolate with homemade Blueberry Ice Cream. Yummy!Christopher F was our server and... More

Food was everything we excpected.. came out hot and was exactly as we ordered. Also the beers were made in house and we're really 3 -4 bucks per beer which was nice especially for a tourist area. Would definitely come back.

Superior food and service. I had the Steak Diane prepared tableside, and they used a filet mignon, cut in half. It was the most tender steak that I have ever had. Everything we tried was over-the-top great. This is where you want to go for a nice meal.

The dining experience my husband and I had at The Library was perfect. The entire staff was welcoming and accommodating and our server Chris knew the entire menu inside and out.
