I went to the Library to celebrate Valentine's day with my family. It surprised us all. We had an excellent meal. The service was was both friendly and efficient, the menu well thought out, the foo...d well prepared, presented and tasty and the prices quite reasonable. What more could one ask for. They also have some live music events that we will check out on our next visit.
I highly recommended it. �

Absolutely AMAZING experience at The Library Restaurant last night.

I will admit, I was a bit disappointed that the restaurant was no longer in the beautiful little building downtown. However, as so...on as we walked in everything was perfect. The atmosphere is amazing, the smells are mouth watering, the fireplace is cozy. The service and the food were honestly wonderful. We loved celebrating our anniversary here, and we will definitely be back in the near future! I HIGHLY recommend The Library Restaurant to anyone in search of a great meal. See More

OMG!! Rarely am I impressed by a dinner out anymore.

WELL... I was impressed. The food was unexpectedly delicious. Whoever is in that kitchen whipping up perfection deserves the highest regard! ...

We visited on the Indian theme night. WOW WOW WOW. It was a party in my mouth all night. Just when I thought I was too full for dessert, I took one taste and realized the party wasn't over. I finished every bit of dessert!

10+ for Delicious
10+ for Presentation
10+ for Service
10+ for live Entertainment

What a hidden Gem!!

Went to The Library for their chocolate tasting menu and everything was delicious. Every course complimented eachother and everything was cooked perfectly. Very well done considering the dining room w...as full and they were servicing every table at the same time . The staff and service were wonderful and the atmosphere was very romantic. Cannot wait to go back again! See More

It was our 5 yr anniversary dinner tonight, haven't been here before. Heard good things. Ended up having the worst service. Waited an hr and a half for two burnt lobster tails, completely bland and s...eason less, had to ask for salt and pepper. Had ordered the lobster bisque for an appetizer, it was on special, way too salty and there was a literal layer of grease or oil on top. Could not eat more than a cple spoons. Husband ordered prime rib cooked med, it came rare. Had to send it back. By the time it came out I was already finished with my meal (not that I cleaned the plate). Seriously disappointed in the entire experience. Will never return.

Returned for dinner after speaking with the owner Justin. Second experience was totally different than the first. Food was fantastic and the service was pretty amazing. Completely different experience. We were impressed and happy with everything. Only regret was not taking a dessert to go! Was sooo full from dinner. Really happy we came back and will definitely be returning!!

Last night we joint my daughter and granddaughter at the Library Restaurant for their Brazilian Tasting Menue, It was a tastiest 7-course meal.I loved the Shrimp & Coconut Soup, It was exquisite, foll...owed by a Cob Salat which also was very good. The Parmesan Chicken Thigh with Grilled Pineapple and Swe et corn Salza was followd by Bellini Ice made with Prosecco, Peach Schnapps &Pomegranate Juice. The crown of the evening in my mind was the Piranha Strips Steak served on rice.It was the tastiest steak ,medium rare, I've had in a long time.I was getting full at this time and the desert completed this menue.Passion fruit & Pinnapple Mouse completed the dinner. It was remarkable. We will be back for the next dinner for sure. Margit Kuhn See More

My wife called ahead for our anniversary and asked to make French Onion soup for us. It was interesting watching our server bring us the soup and her being stopped by the owner before coming to our ta...ble. When she did arrive she told us the cheese melted and was on the bottom of the bowl. I took my spoon and took 1 taste and no cheese or onions could be found on my spoon. I told them all they did was serve us broth . I even told them do you want me to go into the kitchen and show the cook how to make the soup. We ended up leaving and never returned. See More

The food was very good, service was good as well. I would like to see management invest in the decor. Very cafeteria-like. Feels like you are sitting in a lobby. Needs some dividers, booths or some wa...y to cozy the place up a bit. Not the type of ambiance one would want if out on a date. See More
