I've stayed at the Sylvia Beach several times. Most recently I visited the hotel with friends to enjoy a dinner at their restaurant "The Tables of Content". Dinners are served family style and feature fresh vegetables and a choice of a seafood, meat or vegetarian entreé. Reservations are a must. It's fun to sit at a table with both first time and returning visitors to the Sylvia Beach. I will say that the have a variety of chefs and my most recent meal was probably the least impressive. Fish a bit dry, vegetables undercooked (to my taste), but the ambiance is great and I will go back. They've redone a few rooms to new authors, and they looked great. The location is wonderful with Nye Beach right out the door. This is a place for people who don't look for flaws, but appreciate the unique. Yes the building is old and creaky, but if you'd don't like that sort of atmosphere, head down the street to the Shilo Inn. Too bad for you.
