Always a good meal. The staff are very nice and are excellent servers. The noise level is great. I like that you can have dinner conversations without screaming over noise. This also a great place for a romantic dinner with the low lighting in some area.

As always, great food and a variety of menu choices. I do wish the beer selection was better, but we don't go to the Library for the beer. Great restaurant for any occasion!

It was delicious. It was busy but we had a reservation and still had to wait 25 min. I understand waiting a little but with a reservation I would have thought maybe 10-15. Our waitress was nice and food was yummy. Will definitely return

I had the oysters rockefeller for an appetizer a bowl of shrimp and lobster bisque and I had the 10oz filet and added 2.oz and the lobster tail. I ordered my filet medium rare and it was perfect melt in your mouth. Also had the Irish whiskey cake and Peters coffee for dessert. Everything was excellent

My husband and I come here about 4 times a year and usually love it. It was a little too noisy this time and the steak- so so. We had to wait too long to get our cocktail, a beer and a cosmo. The cosmo took me the whole meal and then some to consume, it was mostly vodka. Not my style i like to enjoy my cosmos and NOT vodka. We will try again and see.

The overall dining experience was fantastic in every regard from the wait staff to the food. This place really makes you feel special! The personal attention provided by Brian the Owner is well above and beyond anything you will receive in any of the Chain type restaurants! Been going here for 3o years and have never had a bad meal or experience!

Once a year I have a large group that I get together with. The last 5 years in a row we have gone to the Library IV. We always come back due to popular demand. I'm local but some travel as far as Montgomery County PA and they always say lets go back there. Food is always great and service fantastic.

This is one of our go to restaurants. We love the salad bar always stocked with fresh salad fixings including kale and spinach along with field greens and with everything you would want for a salad and more. Fresh bread is also available. We just love the food. The Filet Mignon melts in your mouth and the Chicken Stefano is so light and tasty.

The steaks are fork tender; the ambiance is relaxing...the sides are just sides. Pricey place. Was a bit disappointed as a table of like 12 came in & sat near us with the guys wearing flashing NYs Eve hats. They sat down n the lites were literally in my eyes. I tried moving my chair but felt awkward as i was in isle..i then brought it to our server's attn..she got one managr to speak us offering to move us then another manager came out. I asked her if she cld just ask them to remove them.(the waitress agreed it was rude if them)..she was reluctant but asked them..the loud guy was like no prob!  They all shut off the lites. Wht bugged me is they were more intent to move us...a 70.00 table rather then risk offending a table of 12..300.00 plus. Smh! Wimpy imho. Not impressed with the service.

My Wife and I have been going there for New Years Eve and other occasions for many years. Steak and prime rib are always great. This year we tried the Lobster Tails. They were called Canadian Lobster tails and were so good. Tender, sweet and juicy.

Library IV is one of the few really good restaurants in South Jersey (south of Cherry Hill).

Salad bare is also excellent with much to choose from.
