    We normally have a great time at 42.... but it's different now. The servers were confused on where to sit us even with a reservation. The food was really bad super fatty over cooked lamb and steak. We actually just kinda laughed and chalked it up to a change in Chefs or Management. It's was a bust for a $250 night. We weren't mad, but probably won't be returning.

    The facility was wonderful. We arrived early but was seated immediately, chose the outside because of the beautiful fall weather. All little chilly so one of the servers turned on the tableside heater for us. The food selection was very good and dessert was wonderful. Highly recommend.

    Service was slow and food was hit and miss. Waited 10 minutes for the waitress to show up when it was not busy; she apologized for being late but service was slow throughout our meal. One entree, shrimp po boy, was very good. Grilled cheese with brisket not very good; brisket was dry and sauce was non-existent. Everyone at the Clinton Library was extremely friendly and helpful. The 42 Restaurant did not measure up to the standards of the Library.

    We sat outside early evening and it was a perfect weather. Our server, who lived in Florida and Vienna, was fantastic. She was professional, timely and ensuring we were having a fantastic dinner. My entree of seafood mac and cheese was the best. The library has a fantastic architecture.

    Seafood Mac and Cheese was "crunchy" as if it was still frozen. Very surprised that we had two orders of it and they were both over cooked. The crab cakes were great! I'm sure it was a bad night for the seafood Mac, the rest of our food and drinks were good.
