The Library is a classic, solid restaurant. Very nice menu and service was very friendly. Not very busy on a Friday evening.

Went here for my birthday 3/18. Everything was 5 star. Service, food and drinks. Wine list was small but just the right selections. Our waiter was very professional. Only drawback was, we found it quite "tacky" adding the gratuity to a table of two. If...More

It is my opinion, that you will not get better service anywhere. The bar is complete. The food is a culinary artistic creation. It is a true dining experience. The Ceasar Salad is prepared table side as is the bananas foster and cherries jubilee.

Steak Diane, Rack of Lamb, Caesar and Blueberry Sundae were great. Bobby was fun and entertaining with table side creations of dishes. Decor needs a big time renovation

Yes, it is expensive, not everything is perfect, but overall it is so worth the cost. Duck is excellent. Cesar salad is enough for 3, the greens were a bit bitter. Skip the escargot, it's fine but not extraordinary. Service is excellent, some waiters more...More

All I can say is it was the best I have ever had. For such a tourist trap town this place is fantastic for preparation, presentation and taste. The decoration and ambiance though is very dated. But you don't go there for the... More
